"For a while you can get along pretty good with one another!" answered the electroacoustic craftsman Tim Hecker to the question, "Can a man be friends with a machine?" Since 2008, No Accident in Paradise, the trio of Albrecht Ziepert, Rafał Stachowiak, and Tino Schmidt, has gotten along very well with its machines. After contributing to compilations on Canadian label Silent Season and Freude am Tanzen, No Accident in Paradise presents its debut album, Asymetria. Drenched in sweat from electronic gymnastics, it's time to rest and relax. The album consists of studio-edited material from five years of live sessions, including tone fragments and samples from such locations as Fusion Festival, the Zollverein Coal Mine Industrial Complex, Bad Schandau's Toskana Thermal Baths, and Time Warp at Mannheim's Herschelbad. Alongside No Accident in Paradise's machines, a collection of diverse instruments brings the album to life: guitar, violin, cello, double bass, piano, saxophone, flute, and step dance all make appearances. While immersed in No Accident in Paradise's organic landscapes of electronic sound sculptures, the mind is not switched off; it's insulated, but everything is still there -- a kind of mental calisthenics in a fully conscious slumber state. At Asymetria's close, Birds Two Cage, the duo of Daniel Stefanik and Stefan Schultz (Juno6), rework "Fragment I" and "Fragment II" to create their own sonic fantasy from tone samples, and prove that experimental ambient music can be wonderfully remixed.
