“rastermusic/noton” is a Germanybased label cooperation that produces electronic music. In 1999, the artists’ labels “rastermusic” and “noton.archiv für ton und nichtton” merged, thus paving the way for a collaboration which links up sequences of sound and art design.
“rastermusic” was founded by Olaf Bender and Frank Bretschneider in 1996 with the intention to create repetitive Minimal Music that is close to the music genre of Pop. Based on a particular approach towards music and composition, the publishing of uniform series are given top priority. The label “noton.archiv für ton und nichtton” was founded by Carsten Nicolai as a platform for conceptual and experimental projects in the fields of music, art and science. Subsequent to the publication of the project in progress “The Clear Series” (1996), the idea emerged, to publish a conceptual CD magazine, which was realised under the serial title “20’ to 2000” on “raster-noton” (1999/2000).
