Cover artwork for "Rabbit Run"
Published by erstwhile records, New York
Keith Rowe, Thomas Lehn and Marcus Schmickler are three of the most prominent names in the European experimental world, each with their own distinct history and discography. All three are members of the all-star electronic orchestra M.I.M.E.O., and in late 2001, they began performing occasionally as a trio, eventually resulting in Rabbit Run.
Via a-musik: "Rowe, Lehn and Schmickler gathered together in June of 2002, in Schmickler's Piethopraxis studio in Cologne, for two days of recordings. The results were Rabbit Run, which is two records in one: a single 41 minute piece designed to be played linearly, and the same piece subdivided into 42 shorter tracks, designed to be played on random shuffle, creating a unique record with each play. The cover painting is by Rowe, in his instantly identifiable pop-art style, subsumed by Cologne designer Heike Sperling into a startlingly original design."
