7697 miles are Cristóbal Rawlins from Santiago de Chile and Dieter Mauson from Hamburg/Germany. They knew each other in May 2016 in Hamburg when Cristóbal stayed or three months in Germany. In June 2016 they started to record music in Berlin and some weeks later in Hamburg. In January 2017 Dieter travelled to Santiago and they went on with their studio work and played their first concerts. In July 2017 Cristóbal returned to Europe for a tour in Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium and Lithuania. In May and June 2018 they were touring in Peru.

VITAL WEEKLY

Dieter Mauson's name one may recognize from his work with Nostalgie Eternelle, but here he is one half of 7697 Miles, a duo with Cristobal Rawlins from Chile. No doubt the name reflects the distance between Santiago de Chile and Hamburg. In May 2016 Rawlins stayed with Mauson for three months and they recorded in Berlin and Hambug and Mausan went to Chili and following more concerts they also played concerts. On their debut CD they have seven pieces, somewhere between six and almost eighteen minutes. I'd say that is all a bit long, but perhaps for me as a reviewer, and not as a listener. I nested myself with a bunch of comics in an easy chair and flicked on the CD, started reading and finding myself having a most enjoyable time. This duo plays what one could call armchair techno music. Spacious synthesizer based music that takes quite a bit of time to develop and sometimes has no need to develop at all as it keeps moving on within the same rhythm and synthesizer patterns. Sometimes a bit of voice material is leaked into it, and perhaps the best was one of the longer pieces, 'Choique Purrun', with its minimalist rhythm and psychedelic synths. Stick on repeat while you go through a whole pile of comic books and have a most enjoyable time with this armchair experiment meeting armchair techno.

BAD ALCHEMY

Tanzt, Computerniks, tanzt! Der eine von 7697 MILES, der da bei Kiñe (ACU 1011) die Beatkurbel dreht, ist Dieter Mauson in Hamburg. Ein alter Hoppler, schon Mitte der 80er als Nostalgie Éternelle (mit Inox Kapell) und ab den frühen 90ern als Delta-Sleep-Inducing Peptide (mit Siegmar Fricke von Bestattungsinstitut). Sein Partner, 7697 Meilen entfernt in Chile, ist Cristóbal Rawlins. Wohnlich bebirkt und als geselchter und ledriger Augenschmaus (die Fotos schoss Mauson), macht das Automatenherz bum-bum, bum-bum-chak. Dazu sirren Drones, der Beat klackt wie mit Steinchen, Gitarrensaiten wabern, sogar ein seltsamer Sprechgesang mischt sich ein und eine theatralische Straßenszene in Chile. Trotz Tilde ist Kinetik die oberste Dominante, unermüdlich klackt und patscht ein Mahlwerk. Mitten durch Santiago fließt das trübe Wasser des 'Mapocho'. Schneller verläuft 'Choique Purrun', der Nandu-Tanz, ein spielerisches Ritual, das zurückgeht auf die Tänze der indianischen Mapuche. Zur zuckenden und pochenden Drummachine von 'Sublimity' kommen Griffe in tief unkende Keysregister. Der Beat stoppt für drahtig federnde Schläge und sublimen Schimmer, setzt aber krummtaktik wieder ein, mit erhabener E-Gitarre und phantasievollen Verzierungen und Akzenten. Dann fordert Mauson immer wieder 'Tanzt!', 'Tanzt!', und im Drum'n'Bass-Duktus mit zuckenden Keyswellen und blechernem Schneebesenbeat kommt animalisch fauchendes Wohlbehagen auf. 'Time Stretch'? Richtig. Zeit und Raum werden auf 9, auf 16, sogar auf 17 3/4 Minuten gedehnt. Zuletzt tuckernd, aber dazu auch mit lascherem Beat und gezogenen Wellen und einer chilenischen (Nachrichten-)Sprecherin. Ufos über der Atacama-Wüste? Schon wieder ein Bischof beim Sex-Chat erwischt?

Ima tome već jako dugo. Biti će oko 25 godina kada su Kraftwerk objavili dvostruki album "The Mix", a jedan sveznalica, bubnjar pratećeg benda Miše Kovača mi je rekao da je to tako plitka muzika koju on može napraviti u tren oka na synthu kolege iz sastava. Kaže, samo stisneš jednu tipku za ritam i izabereš si boje klavijatura kako želiš. Ha-ha-ha! Jasno, tip je i danas uvjeren u svoju tvrdnju premda je profesionalan glazbenik koji, eto, nažalost ništa nije shvatio.

Vjerujem da ima mnogo takvih i da bi odmah odustali na prvoj narednoj prepreci koja ima veze s Kraftwerk poput ovog duet-projekta koji je napravio i jedan-dva koraka dalje od standardnog electro-popa. Sastav je počeo s radom sredinom 2016. kad je Cristóbal Rawlins, Čileanac iz Santiaga otišao na tromjesečni boravak u Njemačku i susreo Dieter Mausona iz Hamburga, te su odmah prišli komponiranju materijala snimajući ih u Berlinu, a nekoliko tjedana kasnije i u Hamburgu. Početkom 2017. Mauson je otputovao u Santiago gdje su kompletirali album, a usput održali i prvi koncert, a sredinom iste već su ostvarili turneju po Njemačkoj, Nizozemskoj, Belgiji i Latviji, te početkom 2018. i po Peruu.

Začuđujući debi također čudnovatog naziva "Kiñe" kao i samo ime benda ispočetka, čini se, nije ništa posebno obećavajuće kad se zavrti "Casual elegancy" gotovo 10 minuta dugačak komad prepun alternativnog duba i repetirajućih vokalnih samplova koji samo služe zbog semantičkog efekta. No, odmah se uočava jedna principjelnost koja se posve razvija tijekom albuma: upravo s repetirajućim kombinacijama post/ minimal-techna na koje se nižu osebujne psihodelične šarže (umiju koristiti i staccato gitare), postiže se krautrockerski dijapazon smješten u elektronskom izrazu. Kompozicijama se nikuda ne žuri, ne pumpaju otprve već se postepeno formiraju na osuvremenjeni način koji je vrlo blizak albumima "Trans Europe Express" i "The Man Machine", ali s jednim bitno pomaknutijim tonskim dekorom koji opet u sebi sadrži pritajene electro-noise elemente, kao i znatno reduciranije zvukove što se tiče same funkcionalnosti basova i harmonija u čemu su im poslužila i obilja eksperimentalnih istraživanja s kojima su čvrsto fiksirali specifične frekvencije što se odmah očitava u "Mapocho", jednoj od najkraćih ('samo' 7.42). Prva prava majstorija dolazi u naslovu "Ruka" s pritajenim naracijama na nekom, kako se čini, jeziku Indijanaca-domorodaca iz Latinske Amerike, ali vrhunac se postiže s 3 najdulje koje traju čak i po skoro 18 minuta poput najdulje "Tanzt!" ili 2 minute kraće "Choique Purrun" u kojima se točno uočavaju nasljeđa Kraftwerk, no onih iz posljednje faze "Tour de France Soundtrack", dok je "Sublimity" po predanju nastavak škole ranih Cabaret Voltaire.

Stoga ovo nije album, a niti glazba za bilo kakav tip auditorija, posebice ne onaj koji nema blage veze s ostavštinom Kraftwerk koji je ovdje kataliziran pod paskom suvremene elektronike sa slobodnim eksperimentalnim frazama i vrlo dugačkim fabulama između kojih se naziru specifične melodije i harmonije, te bogati psihodelični laid-back koji je ustvari i najvažniji dio čitave priče.
