Richie Hawtin celebrates: No releases! No concerts! No appearances!

Minus may well be one of the few companies started because its predecessor was earning too much money. “Plus 8 had become such a workload of success that we consciously decided to slow things down and take time to focus our attention on new ideas.”, Richie Hawtin explains, “That was the moment that Minus was born, with the idea of minimizing everything that Plus 8 had become, going back to basics, and starting again from scratch using everything that I had learned.” The new outfit was aimed directly at the opportunities of Multimedia and the relations between various forms of art.

Richie Hawtin emphasised the help of Detroit legend Clark Warner in getting things started. The collaboration between these two artists, both of which have accompanied the genre from its infant days to a state of maturation and wide respect, would eventually lead to an international platform with headquarters in Windsor, Canada as well as Berlin.

“I hope you all enjoy this moment of silence while we reflect and re-focus our energy, ideas and inspiration for the upcoming Ten Year Anniversary celebrations starting in late March 2008.”, Richie Hawtin concluded, adding that noone needed to miss out on anything: “These special Minus | Ten Events will be spread out over the year and throughout the world.”
