POOLcast 059 - Collab Special - rand
For October we have another Collaboration Special for you. This time we present 'rand', the project of the duo Jan Gerdes and Frank Bogdanowitz aka Dr.Nojoke.
During the lockdown Jan and Bogdan met for improvisational sessions, Jan on piano, electronics and effects and Dr.Nojoke on electronics and effects.
Together they are exploring new ways to fuse and transform their unique visions through a remarkable interplay.

My three releases on Archipel Musiqe Canada - KLEINE CLIKNOPHONIE, GLANDRIDI, CONTORTED & CONVOLUTED - got remasteed by Archipel head Pheek himself.
To celebrate my 15th CLIKNOversary I reissued the nice triple on my bandcamp page.
2005 - 2020 - 15 YEARS OF CLIKNO
This year I celebrate 15 years of CLIKNO music.
Exactly in January 2005 I started to work with Ableton Live with the goal to produce dancefloor-friendly tunes highly inspired by minimal techno and the clicks & cuts compilations on Mille Plateaux.
No wonder my friend Caro C just came up with the term CLIKNO, which I immediately adopted and which I use since then.
The new term allowed me to fill it with whatever I want and so over the past 15 years I produced and released electronic music between experimental, ambient, IDM, electronica, dub techno, minimal techno or whatever one will call it.
and kind of
My first CLIKNO release followed one year later on the former netlabel Direktschall and was entitled CLIKNOLOGIC.
Since then you can find my music on more than 100 releases spread over 40 labels or so.
In 2016 I finally founded my own label and called it CLIKNO.
Two years later I relaunched it as a vinyl label.
Four vinyl EPs are already out and the fifth will be a double 12" in the MAT editions on CLIKNO.

"In celebration of 5 thrilling and inspiring years of work, we’ve gathered well-known artists, Goldmin regulars and emerging talents for a new compilation available as 4x12" vinyls, now available digital including 20 extra tracks"
This track is hard to categorize being not a typical Dr.Nojoke track, but represents my adventurous ambition of exploring sound and rhythm under the CLIKNO theme.

highlighting some of the most beloved and wanted Dr.Nojoke tracks previously released only digitally and made available again now in a remastered version as a dubplate in a very limited edition.

review on The Most Radicalist
rand is a new music project I do together with the concert pianist Jan Gerdes.
We are working since 2018 on a formula between composition and improvisation
blending minimal, jazzy and lyrical piano with electronic ambient, drone, clicks, glitch and technoid sounds.
Our debut concert was at the beautiful Zwingli church in Berlin as part of the Audiovisionen event series.

I still find a newsletter is something very direct, personal, though serious and more sustainable than a blog or social media.
- You read it when you want
- It is easy to archive and to track back
- information is not so liquid, doesn´t get lost or forgotten so quickly as on social media platforms
- The news come directly to you
looks good ;)
