When early 2016 Sindre Bjerga (Norway) and Frans de Waard (The Netherlands) decided to join forces on a tour through Germany and The Netherlands, they decided that a duo act would be in order as well; as both have a wide experience in improvised electronics it was decided not to add another duo of improvised music to the scene, but rather be a group with structured songs that needed planning and rehearsing. Eight song structures were prepared by Frans de Waard, entirely based upon drone material delivered by Sindre Bjerga, plus a bit of synthesizer and rhythm. On tour Frans mixed all of these materials live, while Bjerga added his synth noise, radio/Walkman cut-ups and microphone abuse. All of this resulting in a wild ride of rhythm ' n noise and drones. From the highly subdued to the overtly loud, one could think of early Cabaret Voltaire, Merzbow, computer glitch, cosmic synthesizers, minimal techno and massive drone and you may have something that is close to the Tech Riders sound. The eight pieces on 'In The Sky' are a selection of recordings made on the road in 2016 and have very little to do (anymore) with the CDR that was sold as tour merchandise, also called 'In The Sky'. Confusing? Yes, it sure is, that's Tech Riders for you. Their April 2017 tour will take them to Finland and the Baltic States.



Eine konzertierte Aktion von AC, Gold Soundz & Korm Plastics besorgte In the Sky (ACU 1007 / GS#129 / kp 3064), eine niederländisch-norwegische Beschallung durch Frans de Ward & Sindre Bjerga als TECH RIDERS. Die beiden waren nach erstem Kontakt Ende 2015 im März 2016 um die Häuser gezogen und hatten dabei auch das Atelierhaus 23 in Hamburg, die Baustelle Kalk in Köln beschallt. Genauer: Beprasselt, behubschraubert, umzuckt und besirrt, auch umloopt mit launigem Gepfeife und mit Synthie bedröhnt und bewölkt, bebrodelt und mit Scratches gestreichelt. Loops knarren altersschwach, es furcht, flimmert, mahlt und furzelt. Es überrascht ein ulkiger Drum Machine-Groove mit Stimmfitzeln drumherum, gewollt und gekonnt komisch. Dann wird es dröhnend halbseriös, mit kritzeligen Akzenten und auch wieder groovy. So auch bei 'And So, Just Like That' mit seinen Alltagsloops, seiner 4/4-Simpelei. Bis zum rauschenden, tuckernden, kritzeligen, stimmfitzeligen Ausklang mit diesen kuriosen Hoppereitern.
