FANGER & SCHöNWäLDER
Analog Overdose – The Road Movie
DVD, Manikin Records, 2012
"Analog Overdose – The Road Movie" is the long-awaited dvd comprising various live concerts performed by the German duo Fanger and Schönwälder in 2007 and 2008, accompanied by snapshots while being on the road.

The 115-minute disc starts with the atmospheric/chill-out set they played in 2008 in the TU-Eindhoven. Nice features here are the fine Memotron-parts and soft-soaring pads, although I’m less pleased about Mario’s improvised playing and solo licks. Compared to that, the spherical and smoothly sequenced Liphook-set, accompanied by a simple but effective light show, turns out much tastier and attractive in my opinion.

The third take is an almost 15-minute outtake of the duo’s performance at Los Angeles’ Analogue Haven, a more versatile, sequencer-driven outing where both musicians are staring quite a lot at their laptop-screens. The best part of this dvd is next: it’s a 10-minute atmospheric outing with versatile sequencing and effects played in Frankfurt, Germany, where Klaus Hoffmann-Hoock joins Mario and Thomas energetically on digital Memotron.

The last set comes from a 2008-performance in Berlin, offering a 50-minute chill-out electronic concert with an ongoing tranquil current. In the first half, pulse-rhythms give the outcome a bit of a bite. The watery sound becomes bit bigger in the second part, but once again the improvised solo voices used here are bland. The last couple of minutes features stronger but minimal Berliner-School sequencing.

For all fond of the duos music, I reckon this multimedia release will be a nice addition.
