In the late 90s i was djing at radio blackout ( with Fabio Battistetti. A lot was changing for Gerstein: as already happened in1989, I was living a creative crisis, so I thought that the right solution was to change everything. But How? I decided to have a different approach to sound by manipulating samples and frequencies created with the pc. the result are these eleven tracks of which only few have been released in the past. three of them can be found on the four tape compilation “death factories” that Alessandro Marchettini did on his butcher’s House Prod label. I only performed them live twice: one at radio blackout and the other one at the el paso squat, both in Torino. these tracks, sonically, are the most violent ones produced under the Gerstein monicker and I decided to release them because I felt that even if they’re not the top notch of what today I mean as quality, they still have that urgence of communication that they had back then. thanks to Sacha and Nebo of Luce Sia, you have the opportunity to check them.

I hope that you’ll enjoy them as much as I did listening to them after seventeen years. every time I check something old which I have forgotten, it’s like I’m listening to something that someone else did. with Gerstein is always like this, because everything is created improvising and refining. I release the inner flow that then is free to spread and live on its own. Thanks to: – Sacha and Nebo for their passionate work – Claudia Golombowski for the photos and for the love – Artico Culto for sharing sounds and live experiences – all the Gerstein listeners who are curious to check my music, old or new – Braconidae for sharing ideas and collaborating.
