Escaping perfectionism with Beat Ratio

In this age of iPods and file sharing, music as a physical, tangible medium seems to be on the verge of extinction. And with it, the limitations that once forced artists to work “harder” to create music. The first release from London based Beat Ratio is a reaction against the ease of this new way of working and the (sometimes useless) perfectionism that comes with it. Working exclusively “out of the box” with the aid of a cassette four track and drum machines, this project is an attempt to “craft” songs in a more organic way. The limitations imposed by the tape medium are used as a stimulus for creativity rather than a way to give a lo-fi quality. Plasticrane is very proud to release the first Beat Ratio EP with two songs, “Island in the City” and “Monkey Girl”. Enjoy and stay tuned.

Welcome to the Rational Park

The growing complexity of today’s society seems to coerce and restrict rather than enhance human freedom. With our status of anonymous consumer, we, as small gears, feed day by day this huge and unstoppable engine called world. We should go back from the line crossed ages ago, go back and think critically and creatively to our real needs. Come back to our Rational Park.

Plasticrane is proud to release the first efforts of Rational Park, inviting you to reflect on the Nature concept and to celebrate one of the main event of Modena, the Festival Filosofia, a three days festival focused on philosophical lectures and surrounded by art, music and cool people from everywhere.

Liebe Plasticrane Kinder,
after an exploration of the BundesRepublikDeutschland,
in search of inspiration and new plasticrane fellows,
we’re proud to introduce SAUERKRAUT, a recently born
electro-cosmic, psychedelic and obsessive duo based in
the country around Modena, that pays omage to the
ancient cosmic sound of the teutonic land. Enjoy and relax..
