"The Cologne U-Bahn is a 30-track, 100-mile labyrinth that snakes itself through the city and over the Rhine, consuming every neighborhood in its path. The only vehicle capable of traversing its corridors is the low-floor tram or Niederflur. ND4 collects Niederflur's examinations of the depths of this subway system as they sample its natural acoustics, machine manifestations and other sounds indigenous to the platforms of the Teutonic unterwelt. The duo of Hannes Wenner and Christopher Bleckmann compose human-like, emotive passages from stark field recordings of the U-Bahn while embracing their city's mechanical current. Niederflur rides the rails of rhythm and repetition to a Zen-like, hypnotic effect. Their obsession with movement, precision and efficiency reaches a new height in minimal docu-techno."
