The person behind Sad Rockets and an associate of Bergheim 34, Andrew Pekler began recording under his own name in the first 2000s. Train station to Train station, released by Scape in Apr of 2002, was created because of a culmination of several issues: Pekler’s move from California to Heidelberg, his improved interest in electrical jazz, and acquaintances with saxophonist Elliot Levine and bassist Akira Ando (Pekler fulfilled Levine in a Bergheim 34 display in Philadelphia). Pekler mixed his popping glitch-dub productions with improvised materials performed by Ando, Levine, and a small number of other musicians, therefore pitting man-made and machine-made musics against each other.
