    .
    Powered by the drummer from Krautrock legends Guru Guru, this quartet offers sci-fi inspired soundscapes that remix the vocabulary of free jazz and improv. From sinister ambiance to skittering blow-outs, the tunes are potent and sharply honed. Trumpeter Mich Gerber adds some moments of breathtaking lyricism to this under-appreciated excursion. Not so far from Bill Frisell and Ronald Shannon Jackson's Powertools band.

REVIEWS
.
"The tracks are fairly concise and run the gamut of free improvisation from fairly intense blowouts to moody atmospherics. Werner Lüdi is in particularly good form. And it’s surprising to see Neumeier who is usually found in more avant-rock-contexts. His playing is quite good here." --Cadence

"Cyberpunk is the first FMP release by the electric quartet Blauer Hirsch, and their strong point is rhythmic drive. Most of the record can be gauged in terms of attack: Fool In Plasma taps like a woodpecker, and Tappan Zee burrows like a jackhammer. Trumpeter Mich Gerber is the anomaly in the guitar-driven group, with a soft, ruminative way of playing his long-held notes reminiscent of Sketches of Spain."
--Ben Ratliff, CODA
