"byetone's new record "symeta" opens with a combined track - a transit - since "topas" and "telegramm" could be seen as one single piece. both tracks convey the atmosphere of a live session rather than the character of a studio production. the tracks are quite long and deal with repetition, layers of sounds, density and energy, more than melodic and engineering finesse. the whole album follows this approach, as it was fashioned within the context of live performances during the last two years. "helix" opens the final, more rocky block of the album. here, the tracks are offensive and rude and sound like a band in a rehearsal room. this part peaks with "black peace" in a high speed heavy metal session. finally, "golden elegy" closes "symeta" and a band-like situation occurs. the track ends with a wired lament, presented by jan kummer in the tenor of chemnitz, hometown of both artists. in former GDR-times, they started their musical activity with the brilliant-dilettantish AG geige, together with frank bretschneider (komet). "symeta", the title of the album, appears mysterious. this synthetic word arouses associations with symmetry, synthesis or (meta-)structures. it doesn't stand for a definite object, there isn't any solution, and that is the reason why the title has been chosen. byetone's music tries to create such associations without really fulfilling these expectations."
