Microstoria is a aspect task of Oval’s Markus Popp and Jan St. Werner of Mouse on Mars. Merging Oval’s fetish for Compact disc scarification with MoM’s unusual instrumentation and breezy, subtlely inchoate agreements, the pair’s mixed efforts arrive off much as you might anticipate. The group debuted with a set of albums within the German Mille Plateaux label dropping somewhere between the greater interesting techno-exotica of St. Werner’s primary focus as well as the occasionally gruelling abstraction of Popp’s. Both produces had been reissued by Stateside post-rock imprint Thrill Jockey (Tortoise, Rome, Trans Am), which also released the remix work Reprovisers in 1997. Model 3 Step two 2 was released three years later on.
