üNN is the solo project of Frank Rueckert, also known as one half of Rauschfaktor. Frank started to develop a deeper interest in music at the age of 11 or 12, being bored and irritated by the stuff which was emanating from his sisters bedroom (Abba, The Sweet, The Bay City Rollers and all that). The first time that I heard bands like Human League, Kraftwerk and Depeche Mode I was fascinated by their electronic sound. As an early 'Space Invaders junkie he soon discovered the sound chip in his home computer. A few years later he got his first synthesizer and started to produce own tracks. After some techno/industrial-releases as 'Tribantura' in the early 90s, it was his solo project üNN that definitely put him on the map of electronic music. Focusing on ambient sounds, chill out stuff, electro and experimental music he soon gained a great reputation with his trademark 'autobiographical sound. Frank Rueckert is a musical storyteller who loves to work on his tracks in a spontaneous way. Im improvising a lot and often the best songs arise unexpectedly and surprisingly. The songs that are brought to life in those 'precious moments are definitely the best! His two highly acclaimed üNN albums on Elektrolux covered a wide range of musical emotions. 'Delay was darker and more melancholic, while the floow up Relief felt more optimistic and uplifting. Besides his work with üNN and Rauschfaktor, Frank has also performed as a VJ and produced several video clips that are constantly featured on the legendary tv program 'Flowmotion. In 2002 Frank released his third full-length album on mikrolux.Discography:
