With the Rollator Series, attenuation circuit provides
a forum for noise as an art form related to music,
but not necessarily part of it. To underline this idea
of a comprehensive “noise art,” the Rollator Series
features artists who also create their own cover art,
or work in close collaboration with the visual artists
who create the covers.
The sounds of the albums are widely spread within
the area of noise, aiming to present the whole range
of possibilities of “noise” as a field of creative research.
Like attenuation circuit in general, the Rollator Series
is aimed at bringing together artists from the immediate
surroundings of the label, mainly from Germany, with
noise artists from all over the world.
Rollator Series is aimed at presenting a wide range of
different visual as well as acoustic styles, from abstract
paintings to digital art to collage. To showcase the
artwork along with the music, the CD-Rs come in
limited editions of 50 or 100 copies with high-quality print covers.
After the physical edition is sold out, each release remains
available as a free download.
Rollator Series was conceived by Burkhard Jaeger, who
curates the series exclusively for attenuation circuit.
Burkhard is an expert on the international noise scene.
His own noise work as ORiFiCE includes the albums
“Signal Kitchen”, “Pinkk Llullabies” and "fudge function" on attenuation circuit, and “Katarakt” as a keynote to the Rollator Series.
