Otto von Rhinau alias Keiji Katsuda, alias Mr. Piggie Popp began improvising electronics around 2006. He produced sounds always rooted in a radical critique of the art system. His philosophy: social liberation entire total opposition to the yoke of capitalism and merchant, and its counterpart, the myth of the leisure society. Alternatives, enjoyment and free, artistic liberation, and the refusal of any and all hierarchical power mainstream.
His latest album « Empty Nose Syndrom » leads off with melodic and rhythmic parts mixed with distorted guitar lines and spoken words. Subtle the atmosphere moves to gloomy epic drone and ambient sounds, intermitted by metallic noise patterns. Processed radio signals and hidden voices build up psychedelic sound sculptures which change with Birds to a relaxed ambient piece to end up in a weird telephone call distorted by noise.
