As a cooperation of Kera Nagel (Axiomatic Integration) and Andr? Aspelmeier (Gradient Communication) Incite/ is an investigation in repetitive patterns and minimalist-beats. While performing they commonly create rhythms and sounds in abstract arrangements, which oscillate from fragmented grooves to experimental soundscapes.

Axiomatic Integration:

Axiomatic Integration merges seemingly contradictory musical elements based on a multitude of sound-sources; melodic parts evolve out of noisy elements, grainy sounds are combined with clear ones, calm intros step up to aggressive sequences.

Grad Communication:

The music of Gradient Communication resembles an acoustic microscope: fragments are stretched and distorted, low frequency drones raise up to a physically menacing substance. Fragile sounds, distorted pads and subtile lo-fi loops combine almost organically to a repetitive structure. A carefully constructed flow of manipulated sounds, varying between granular and electric, appears as a structure of digitally transformed elements. Including kinetic visuals in live performances, Gradient Communication enhances the intensive atmosphere, that can end up either rougher or smoother than on the recordings.
