Jan Jelinek’s approach is all about the transformation of sound, about translating parameters of popular music into abstract, reduced and textural electronics. In 1998 he started to release his works under a number of pseudonyms (farben, gramm) adapting his primary sampling premise to a surprising range of different sounds. During the following years, Jan Jelinek collaborated with artists like Sarah Morris or German authorThomas Meinecke, played a range of laptop or gadget-based live sets, worked with improvisation ensembles from Japanese trio Computer Soup to the Australian jazz formation Triosk and created a number of audio-visual performances with video artist Karl Kliem for the Centre Pompidou in Paris, among others. In 2008, Jelinek started the label faitiche as a platform for his own sound experiments. To date, the label has released three works: Faitiche01, the forgotten oeuvre of an early electronics composer; Faitiche02, which explores the question of copyright in public space and Faitiche03, a collaboration with the Vibraphonplayer Masayoshi Fujita.
