"the lessons learned from 'uthlande' have passed into 'margo flux', and we’re all the richer for it."
the sound projector (uk)

when rant was courageous in breaking their own musical pattern and instrumentation on „land“, they even go a step further now on „margo flux“. it is already almost impossible to tell what kinds of intruments and objects we hear, but nevertheless the two musicians switch their basic instruments on top. merle bennett plays guitar on two pieces and torsten papenheim plays the drums on „folia“.

the basic approach to developing and composing the music is still the same as it has always been – it's a collaboration in every way, interlocked in creation and performance. again new is the approach to recording „margo flux“. It was a much more open and fragmentary process, developing the music over the time of the recordings. the origin of the album is the work „uthlande“ which came into being in 2013 as a remittance work for the garagenoper festival in berlin and is rant's first scenic work, playing the entire stage with light and sound installation using contact mics, dictaphone and sampler. out of this material rant created the new album.

rant Berlin, Germany

rant exists since 2004 and explores the possibilities of duo playing to the extreme and has developed a very unique musical identity. The interlocked play of Merle Bennett (drums) and Torsten Papenheim (guitar) creates an exciting balance between precision and playfulness, groove and looseness, sound and song. Each piece creates a very specific musical world. ... more
