The publication “Source Book 1” represents the beginning of a comprehensive and authorized review of the past 20 years of the label Raster-Noton. A short introductory preface by Olaf Bender is followed by a keynote interview conducted by Berlin publicist Max Dax that provides an insight into the identity and philosophy of the label heads. the main part of this first “Source Book” comprises the extensive catalog of all releases and series published between 1996 and 2016.
Tabular listings of various formats and products that were distributed or curated by Raster-Noton complete the catalog. A further exclusive part of the publication is the accompanying “Archiv 4” CD, which is only available in connection with the book. Raster-Noton‘s “Archiv” series was first introduced in december 2003 as a supplement to The Wire magazine and has since been continued in loose sequence with different artists related to the label.
