Album launch for Editions Mego boss Peter Rehberg – aka Pita – with support from founding member of Wire, Bruce Gilbert.
Get In extends the perennial Pita sound into a paradox of intimidation and beauty. 20150609 teases the juncture between the human and the tool, the improvised and composed and the analogue and digital. Aahn inhabits a field of electronic nebula, simultaneously inviting and alien. Line Angel could be a new form of minimalism for the post internet crowd. S200729 harks to an acid most splintered whilst Mfbk completes proceedings as an ambient drift underscored with classical overtones.
Peter Rehberg (a.k.a. Pita) (born 29 June 1968, London) is an author of electronic audio works and currently head of Editions Mego. In 1999 he received Prix Ars Electronica Distinction Award for Digital Musics, alongside Christian Fennesz. He also runs the Editions Mego label, formerly known as Mego.
“...stands as the first major musical laptop statement in the same way that Jimi Hendrix’s Are You Experienced album spoke for the most extended instrument-specific modes of the electric guitar three decades earlier.” – David Keenan on Pita's 'Get Out'.
Bruce Clifford Gilbert (born 18 May 1946) is an English musician. One of the founding members of the influential and experimental art-punk band Wire, Gilbert branched out into electronic music, performance art, music production, and DJing during the band's extended periods of inactivity. Gilbert left Wire in 2004 and has since been focusing on solo work and collaborations with visual artists and fellow experimental musicians.
