NOT IN STOCK
A collaboration by 4 composers: Janek Schaefer, Stephan Mathieu, Timeblind, Radboud Mens. Composed and recorded in an hotel room while at MUTEK 2002, cover by Stephan Mathieu, edited by Radboud Mens and Janek Schaefer. "Quality Hotel is the result of editing the finest moments from probably several hours of improvising music together. It's hard to tell who did the final selection, but my guess it's Stephan Mathieu having a big hand in this. I don't hear Radboud Mens crazy minimal techno, Timeblind's hip hop inspired rhythms and from Janek we hear his turntable, but it's very much incorporated in the total. Leaves the warm crackles of Mr. Mathieu, still one of the more refined musicians when it comes to warm glitches, and it seems to me that he has a firm hand in editing this album. It's subdued ambient like music, with occassional crackles and hiss, maybe even an odd bang here and there (although rhythm is altogether not a theme here). Held back and refined, warm and glitchy."
