Germany-based Olaf Bender is one of three founders of the Raster-Noton imprint. He often records under such aliases as Byetone and Lumen for solo projects, and together with Komet and Carsten Nicolai (aka Alva Noto) forms the laptop microsound trio Signal. His output is extremely sparse, with his sole full-length contributions being a disc in the prize-winning 20 to 2000 series and 2003's Feld, released on Raster-affiliated label Binemusic. He handles the administrative and creative duties for Raster-Noton as well as tours frequently.
