ECSTASY THROUGH ASCETICISM

Nik Bärtschs own trademark sound, the RITUAL GROOVE MUSIC, points out to the fundamental concept of his musical thinking. The music shows a close affinity to architecturally organized space and is governed by the principles of repetition and reduction as well as by interlocking rhythms. A piece of music can be entered, inhabited like a room. It moves forward and transforms through obsessive circular movements, superimposition of different meters and micro-interplay. The listeners attention is directed toward minimal variations and phrasing.

The bands Nik Bärtsch’s Ronin & Mobile become an integral organism – like an animal, a habitat, an urban space. One must think with ears and hands.
