Pattern Dissection is an independent record label, radio show and concert organiser from Berlin, dedicated to free jazz and related sounds of improvised nature. We have been broadcasting on Cashmere Radio since 2017 and hosting gigs since 2018 with the aim to offer selected international artists a stage for live interaction. In this spirit, producing and releasing recorded documents felt inevitable.

Pattern Dissection x Cashmere Radio
Feature Comparison in Memory
This monthly radio show is dedicated to records that deliver sounds usually meant to be experienced live. With a strong focus on improvised music and free jazz, the programme’s presentation itself is spontaneous and aims to play tricks on comparison, memory and (re)cognition by reshaping stimuli’s distinctive features — it is basically ninety minutes of messing things up.
