"Improvisation not a fetish, but rather as material, as an object of process, as a means to save past gestures, those hardly left in memory -- this is the musical procedure of the Frankfurt trio Blank. Blank consists of Oliver Augst (voice, no-input mixing board, harmonica, etc.), Christoph Korn (guitar, live electronics, melodica, and voice from time to time) and Rüdiger Carl (claviola, a small keyboard with rhythm functions, a little accordion, no clarinet this time around, but with voice, a world premier!). The Frankfurt-based group has been working together for seven years. Post is an exemplary expression of working antithesis. The music seems static and diverting at the same time; there are virtually no references and concessions on the zeitgeist, and yet Post is saturated with historical gestures -- punk, techno, the proletariat song tradition, trace elements of blues and new wave."
