Internationale Solidarität is the third album of the duo formed by Martin Brandlmayr and Nicholas Bussmann under the name Kapital Band 1. Since their first album Kapital Band 1 – 2CD in 2004 the duo have been exploring the possibilities of improvising music with machines, investigating parallel existences and mimetic affirmations of machine structures and human patterns. For Internationale Solidarität, they revised their experimental settings once again to embark on search between impulse and logic, algorithms and attitudes, false random and real mistakes.
