German-born electronic and digital musician Stephan Mathieu (1967) experimented with
minimalist repetition and aleatory composition
on Wurmloch Variationen (Ritornell, 2000).
Then he used sample-based composition to create the atmospheric glitch-pop of
Frequency Lib (Mille Plateaux, 2001).
Die Entdeckung des Wetters (Lucky Kitchen, 2002) collects assorted compositions, each exploring a different idea of music.
Full Swing Edits collects a series of 10" remixes.
He has also engaged in a number of improvised collaborations that add up to
Heroin (Staalplaat, 2001) with Ekkehard Ehlers,
Quality Hotel (Mutek, 2003) with Radboud Mens, Janek Schaefer and Timeblind,
Reciprocess (Bip-Hop, 2003) with Douglas Benford.
On Tape (Hapna, 2004) is a collaboration with
Swedish trio Tape, with Mathieu on drums and field recordings.
The romantic chamber ambience of The Sad Mac (Headz, 2005) marks
a new direction, towards a more accessible kind of music.
Kapotte Musiek (Korn Plastics, 2003) documents a 1996 concert.
Radioland (2008) was made by manipulating real-time recordings of
short-wave radio signals, and one of his most evocative works.
The cassette Flags (Tapeworm) contained some of his most disembodied
and cacophonous music.
A Static Place (14K, 2011), composed between december 2007 and october 2010, and its follow-up Coda (2012) used ancient 78rpm records, mechanical-acoustic gramophones and computers.
