"THE PATTERN THEORY are a Berlin based three-piece instrumental band, playing six instruments simultaneously. With a strong focus on complexity and detail, they somehow always manage to sound effortlessly tuneful. Their self-titled debut album was recorded nocturnally in a disused office space in East Berlin. It's focussed on eloquence and detail, they managed to make complication sound effortless and in doing so, to open up a new perspective on minimal harmonies and melodies. Their songs consist of a few main phrases which are constantly altered and rearranged, creating a pattern-like structure. With influences ranging from Tortoise to Steve Reich to 70s smooth rock, the album's sound is enriched with vibraphones, xylophones and various synthesizers." (label info)
