 Since 2000 Mapstation has been the moniker for the solo work of TAL Label founder Stefan Schneider. Schneider has won international acclaim as a founding member of KREIDLER and to rococo rot as well as through unique collaborational works with artists such as Joachim Roedelius (Cluster/Harmonia), Bill Wells, Katharina Grosse, Dieter Moebius (Cluster/Harmonia) Sofia Jernberg or Jochen Irmler (Faust). There has not been a new mapstation release since 2009’s THE AFRICA CHAMBER which had former FELA KUTI member NICHOLAS ADDO-NETTEY on percussion. The new album PRESENT UNMETRICS, is not entirely a stand-alone creation either. There are guest appearances by THOMAS KLEIN (KREIDLER) on percussion, MICHAEL ACHER (THE NOTWIST) on Sousaphone and an outstanding vocal contribution from japanese singer HACO, all deeply woven into the digital topographics of the music. PRESENT UNMETRICS offers a collection of radically subtle music. The guiding principle of the album was to construct direct and nuanced tracks which embody a sense of open-ended incompleteness and heterogenous dynamics. Out of sync bass arpeggios, infused with uneven rythms, fractured synth stabs and intimate melodies, frequently created here with a Schlumberg sine wave generator, are continuously engage with experimentation, both on sound and structure. Expertly pieced-together and produced in timeless fashio, PRESENT UNMETRICS displays all the coherence and artistic authority of an album on a constant quest so vital to the music of mapstation. An album that couldn’t have been made by any other than mapstation. ーTAL (Germany, 2019) Stefan SchneiderによるソロプロジェクトMAPSTATION 10年ぶりのニューアルバム。 フィーチャリング:MICHAEL ACHER (THE NOTWIST) 、THOMAS KLEIN (KREIDLER)、HACO (AFTER DINNER) ☁ Stream / ストリーミング https://mapstation.bandcamp.com/album/present-unmetrics ♪ Sample / 試聴 “Passage (Featuring Haco)” https://soundcloud.com/hacohacodotnet/mapstation-passage-featuring-haco ■ Label / レーベル ■ TAL (AL14) (Germany) TALMUSIC.COM ☁ Reviews (excerpts) / レビュー (抜粋) ”Exploring the space between African rhythm and German electronic minimalism, Mapstation’s first album for a decade catches Düsseldorf lynchpin Stefan Schneider (To Rococo Rot) really getting closer to his personal ideal of rhythm and sound While Mapstation has been on hiatus since 2009, Schneider has been keenly busy with his ace label TAL, as well as various action with Harmonia’s Roedelius and Moebius, and art/research trips to Africa. In ‘Present Unmetrics’ he effortlessly combines these contrasting poles of sound and styles in a mix of sloshing rhythmic polymetrics and physically modelled synthesis, resulting 10 pieces that move and evolve with an engaging curiosity for cyborganic and subtly forward strains of electronic music that more closely resembles the fractal not fractional sprawl of nature and human movement, both muscular and emotional, to land a sound somewhere between his former Kreidler bandmate Detflef Weinrich and Rashad Becker." ―(Boomkat, UK - October 2019) “アンビエントでミニマル meets REGGAE & DUB エレクトロニクスの唯一無二の美学。才人Stefan SchneiderによるソロプロジェクトMAPSTATIONがなんと!10年ぶりに再始動!!!祝。久しぶり10年ぶりのニューアルバムが自身のTALより届けられた!!!大推薦盤。 よりモノクロームで淡く柔らかなスケッチ水墨画のようなエレクトロニクス・ドローン・アフリカン・ミニマル・ダブの深い境地へと辿り着いたかのようなメディテーショナル滋味深い音楽世界か繰り広げられている。KreidlerのThomas Kleinによるアフリカンパーカッション、ジャンベ、After DinnerのHacoのポエトリー・リーディング的ヴォーカル、The NotwistのMichael Acherによる大型のバルブ式低音金管楽器スーザフォンのミニマル静かなる鳴りの存在感も効いている。枯山水のような間合いの美学が深く沁み入る。美しく静謐、素晴らしい。全10トラック。” ―コンピューマ (Newtone Records, JP - 2019年11月)
