I started to look at it as a science, the art of making people move their butts, speaking to their heart, mind and soul. It's a heart-felt rhythmic techno sound. In Audio Culture: Readings in Modern Musicmusic journalist Philip Sherburne states that, like most contemporary electronic dance music, minimal techno has its roots in the landmark works of pioneers such as Kraftwerk and Detroit Pattern 14 - Richie Hawtin - DE9 's Derrick May and Juan Atkins.
Minimal techno focuses on "rhythm and repetition instead of melody and linear progression ", much like classical minimalist music and the polyrhythmic African musical tradition that helped to inspire it. Los Angeles -based writer Daniel Chamberlin attributes the origin of minimal techno to the German producers Basic Channel.
Chamberlin also sees the use of sine tone drones by minimalist composer La Monte Young and the repetitive patterns of " In C " by minimalist composer Terry Riley as other influences.
He also notes that much of the music technology used in electronic dance music was traditionally designed to suit loop-based compositional methods, which may explain why certain stylistic features of minimal techno sound similar to those in works by Reich that employ loops and pattern-phasing techniques.
Philip Sherburne proposes that minimal techno uses two Pattern 14 - Richie Hawtin - DE9 stylistic approaches: skeletalism and massification. In contrast, massification is a style of minimalism in which many sounds are layered over time, but with little variation in sonic elements. Today the influence of minimal styles of house music and techno is not only to be found in club musicbut is becoming increasingly heard in popular music.
The average tempo of a minimal techno track is between and beats per minute. Richie Hawtin suggests bpm as the perfect tempo. Both are still often used on today's minimal techno tracks. In contrast to minimal houseminimal techno is less afrocentric and focuses more on middle frequencies rather than deep basses. Many projects in other locations, such as those of Regis in the UK, Basic Channel in Berlin and Mika Vainio in Finland, have also made significant contributions to minimal techno.
In recent years, the genre has been heavily influenced by the microhouse genre, to the point of merging with it. It has also fragmented into a great number of difficult to categorize subgenres, equally claimed by the minimal techno and microhouse tags.

I am concerned. Hawtin's office includes some equipment I've never seen before. There's a turntable-cum-centrifuge linked to a translucent laptop computer. The computer's screen brightly displays the words, "Final Scratch: initialization complete.
Press F1 to commence procedure. Hawtin's right hand: "What's going on? The course of treatment I propose that you undergo will alleviate some of your difficulties. As we've discussed before, the optical nerve of your ectopic eye is fused with the optic nerve of your other, correctly situated eye. We've discussed that removal of your ectopic eye is not feasible without severing the conjoined optic nerve Pattern 14 - Richie Hawtin - DE9 thus inducing permanent blindness.
My recommendation is that you agree to have the nerve of your ectopic eye treated by this DE9 process. Understand that you will lose sight in that eye, but given its location, and the fact that you've never received anything but utterly confusing signals from it, I predict a substantial improvement in your quality of life. This work continues and improves upon my previous Decks, EFX Pattern 14 - Richie Hawtin - DE9 minimal tone surgery, but I've greatly reduced the duration of each sample and the therapeutic payload.
The results are dramatic and with negligible side-effects. Some of these samples I have created myself, but the majority of them were produced by my esteemed colleagues in the minimal community-- Professor Carl Craig, Dr. Janek Sienkiewicz, Dr.
Stewart Walker, Dr. Dale Lawrence, Dr. Peter Speiss, to mention but a few.
