Under the moniker Shed, René Pawlowitz has published three highly ambitious albums in which he defines his work more and more as his own way of musical narration; The Final Experiment is definitely the temporary highlight of this evolution. It establishes Shed conclusively as one of the most interesting and substantial active electronic music artists. It carries a vibe that links Shed to other boundary breaking artists, such as Ryuichi Sakamoto, Brian Eno, and Carsten Nicolai. However, Shed has found a way to develop a highly individual way of communicating electronic music that is self-sufficient. The Last Experiment is a mostly homogeneous piece of work, a meditation where the stylistic confusion seems less important than the musical statement that it represents.
