Dopplereffekt @ RBMA

Gerald Donald and Michaela To-Nhan Bertel

Dataphysix, Rephlex, Detroit

Everyone who ever experienced the approach of a vehicle sounding a siren or a horn knows about the so-called Doppler effect. Not less astonishing than physics is the mysterious electronic music production unit that goes by the name of Dopplereffekt. There are almost no interviews and hardly any live appearances. The composers hide behind strange German pseudonyms whereas the song titles and lyrics are in English and make up a strange mixture of scientific, sexually explicit and political allusions. Dopplereffekt's music is also highly eclectic and unusual. Even if at first sight the forefathers Kraftwerk seem to be more than present, Dopplereffekt have developed their very own and highly influential sound aesthetic in modern electronic music. Listen to their classic album 'Gesamtkunstwerk' for starters. The brain behind this mythical group is scientist Heinrich Mueller (Drexciya, Arpanet, Japanese Telecom, Der Zyklus and many more) and their music today is more experimental but also more daring, mature and interesting than ever. Check also the experimental album 'Linear Accelerator' released on International Deejay Gigolo or 'Calabi Yau Space' on Rephlex for a beautiful melodic and rhythmic journey into the world of theoretical physics and string theory. Great melody, rhythm and harmony begins with sound itself and it is on this level that Dopplereffekt is concentrating. This is "techno" in the sense that the term was originally intended. Exclusively for RBMA Radio, chief scientist Heinrich Mueller provides a rare insight as well as some speak and spell into his Dataphysix Engineering lab.
