"If the sounds emanating from this disc seem alien, do not be alarmed. Fremdkoerper, or 'alienated bodies,' is culled from a series of compositions Peter Rehberg constructed in collaboration with choreographer Chris Haring for a soundtrack to a live dance performance. You can't see the dancers, but you're invited into their alien world where bodies are absent, leaving behind shadows of their sweeping gestures, gentle flourishes, and violent peregrination. The music on this record is the infrastructure of the human body; at times it is pleasant, at others, horrifying. Since Fremdkoerper was originally intended as a companion to the dance performance, it lacks the typical structure of his more conventional releases. Epic drones lead into dramatic scores. Moods change without warning. Glitchy textures give way into thick, heavy tones. The transition from the subterranean rumble of opening track 'Mutisil' to the distorted raygun blast of 'Scream' is enough to reset your heartbeat (in fact, you can consider this press release fair warning). The hulking sine-wave drone of '1407' is quickly invaded by hungry extraterrestrials on 'Bite Double.' This is the record with which to test out your new stereo."
