Detailed information:

"The term "E-Musik" is not used to denote "electronic music", as one could be led to believe. Rather the E stands for "earnest" music or a music that is to be taken seriously, even more so as composers of this genre tend to be focused on their salary. Whether the distinction between E- and U-Musik, that mainly exists in the german speaking territories, is to be rendered a useful one, Bekker/Tietchens try to explore on their 1988 release E. They do this by appraoching some stylistic variation of so-called E-Musik in their own terms. What we hear ranges from soviet realism via dodecaophincs through to minimal music and free atonality. The meeting of Bekker and Tietchens and the results of their encounter on this album are all the more remarkable because Tietchens is an exponent of non-academic electronic music and Bekker works in the field of F-Musik, whose social acceptance is way below that of U-Musik. F-Musik stands for "functional music" and describes a type of music no one really wants to listen to. Usually upon playback the irritated listener tries to lower the volume approaching zero. Thus the title "Musik Im Deutschen Imbiss (short: MIDI)" - while being totally neglected both by music sociology and musical aesthetics - might well prove to be an example a valid analysis for compositional challenges that mights be solved on a future album entitled "P". Strictly speaking Bekker and Tietchens know New Music only by hearsay and through occasional visits of concerts in broadcasting houses or other remote locations. That they tried to formulate a somewhat partial typology of New Music regardless, is due to their enthusiasm and juvenile furor. It is not a product of their actual knowledge of the subject."
