rastermusic/noton is a label cooperation for electronic music based in germany. in 1999 both artist labels rastermusic and noton.archiv f? ton und nichtton merged and the foundation stone for a co-work uniting sound and art design with strong attention to scientific sequences was laid down.
rastermusic was founded by olaf bender, frank bretschneider in 1996. the main interest was to give repetitive minimal-music following the direction of pop. priority is to publish series with focus on a specific philosophy of music/ sound composing.
noton.archiv fuer ton und nichtton was founded by carsten nicolai more as an platform for conceptional and experimental related projects in music, art and science. after the publishing of the still ongoing the clear series in 1996 the idea for a conceptual cd magazin occured and was finally realised as the 20`to 2000 series on raster-noton between 1999 and 2000.
