About

  • The label rastermusic was founded by Olaf Bender, Frank Bretschneider and Michael Kummer in Chemnitz in 1995 with the aim of releasing groundbreaking electronic music. By means of serial concepts and audio-visual performances, artistic standards were defined early on. rastermusic was renamed raster-noton in 1999 (in connection with the release of the »20 minutes to 2000« series) and has been managed as a one-man company by Olaf Bender (aka Byetone) since 2002. In 2017, raster-noton was renamed raster-media. raster-media sees itself as an independent »artistic platform« and would not be imaginable without the diverse engagement of its associated artists. In addition to music from well-known and emerging artists, raster-media also releases books, data carriers, graphics and installation works. Since the label was founded, the non-profit festival »Electric Campfire« has taken place every year. Initiated as a private party on a farm in Chemnitz, the »Electric Campfire« was an annual guest of the German academy »Villa Massimo« in Rome for over ten years (2007 to 2017). Today, the festival wanders between different locations worldwide with the aim of bringing artists and community together.
