EFFICIENT REFINERIES founded in 1995 by Miguel A. Ruiz from Spain and Siegmar Fricke from Germany (both active in the electronic sector since the 80's) is the clear audio-definition of pharmacoustic experimentalism. After the two CD-releases NITIDEATH (on SIMPLE LOGIC | Poland ) and EPINERVIO (on MENSTRUALRECORDINGS | Italy) Efficient Refineries have finished their newest work KRONOTROP exclusively for the prolific Russian netlabel OTIUM. KRONOTROP features pieces that have been recorded between 1995 and 1998 in the Efficient Refineries-studios in Madrid and Germany; digitally edited and compiled by Miguel. The album contains tracks of high abstraction, ranging from industrial sound-pollutions to sophisticated electronics and experimental acid-structures. KRONOTROP reflects the present era of industrial desolation and is another step forward in the progressive sound-constructions and powerful industronics by two electro-fetishists from Europe. EFFICIENT REFINERIES work with a wide range of vintage analogue equipment like CRUMAR BIT ONE, SOLTON PROGRAMMER, MINI MOOG, old rhythm-boxes, sampling and computer-plug-ins.
