The digital compositions of Reto Mäder aka RM74, generate a sketchy world of granular pixels, inhabited by microsounds that creep up on the listener. His working method is close to the macroscopic; an imaginary acoustic plan opens up and leads us to hot and cold places in Mäder’s bank of little experiments. rm74 likes to fall back on source material such as flirring neons, or sounds originating from digital and analog errors; these he uses as scaffolding for the single units. Often tiny melodious pearls of yearning will pop up; a skilful crafting within the microbe empire; this is microsport.
