Muster, the German word for both 'example/sample' or 'pattern', welcomes us with an artwork that shows baroque garden ornaments, photographed from orbit. This 50 minute piece of permanently evolving structure and sound is a complex, well-thought and thoroughly crafted composition which is in fact inspired by the phenomenon of the ornament itself. Muster in this sense can be understood as a large, meandering ornamental pattern or rhythmical figure that, most of all, does not refer to, or reproduce any musical structure heard so far. On Muster you won't find melodies, harmonies, words, a message or reference to existing musical styles, since the accent was laid upon the development of the musical particle (one may call it 'atom' :) ) itself: rhythm and its sonic elements, being in permanent flow. At the same time this complex block of sonic information may sound 'orbital' to us - a musical structure as conceived by a being not from this planet: an alien observer. While this work can be considered as a leap forward in atomTM's creation, it may resemble some of his earlier works, such as Schnittstelle, The Disk Orchestra, Bund Deutscher Programmierer or CMYK, just to name a few, while it certainly shows that those works where just a step towards a far larger picture, which atomTM has begun to paint now. Matured as a composer, atomTM may indeed quote himself on this masterpiece, while he stands fairly alone in a vast desert called 'electronic music'.
