Kapital Band 1 - Internationale Solidarität [Ni Vu Ni Connu Promo]

Released only recently via cryptically named imprint Ni-Vu-Ni-Connu is "Internationale Solidarität", the new - and third - album effort created by Martin Brandlmayr and Nicholas Bussmann under their conjunctional moniker Kapital Band 1 who are coming at us with two extended compositions on this longplayer. Stretched out over a total of 42 minutes the two artists explore an improvisational universe built off of drums and a robot controlled grand piano, an unusual setting fusing automated piano precision with what seem to be random, partly even erratic and surely somewhat subdued percussion movements in the background of the mix. Yet, what comes across as a quite chaotic and hard to grasp affair in the first place starts to develop a brash, noir'esque and somewhat DarkJazz-infused charm for avantgarde-informed listeners even though we presume a majority of folks outside what might be called a conceptual art bubble for the lack of a better description might not necessarily be able to fully embrace or endure this album to experience the surprisingly tender and harmonic closing sequences which round off "Internationale Solidarität" on a well peaceful note.
