“Herpes O DeLuxe is a four piece group from Bern, Switzerland working since more than 10 years in a musical field between atmospheric noise, electronica bruitiste, sombre soundscapes and harsh drones. Their instruments are partly analogue electronic gear, partly self build or deconstructed tools like tape loops or turntables that are (mis-)used as rhythm machines.
The compositions of Herpes O DeLuxe are – to a great extent – structured sound monuments that often last between 30 and 50 minutes. The band creates these in time-consuming rehearsal and recording sessions although they are usually performed live once or twice only. Such recordings often disappeared in the archives.
A while ago Reto Maeder aka rm74 came up with the idea of picking out some excerpts of their vast catalogue of unreleased music and trying to create some sort of “song collection”, meaning that these tracks are outtakes of longer, sometimes slowly developing compositions but here are re-defined by rm74 (who also involved himself in the post production as a guest musician) as self-contained tracks full of aspiration, nostalgia and stoic romanticism.
This is not a collaboration in the common sense but rather Herpes Ö DeLuxe’s music heard through the ears of rm74.”
