Komet is the project of Frank Bretschneider, a German guru of minimal highly-processed glitch-techno music. On recordings such as Saat (Rastermusic, 1996), Flex (Rastermusic, 1997), 20' To 2000 - Januar (Raster-Noton, 1999), Rausch (12k, 2000), possibly his most haunting work, Gold (Raster-Noton, 2003) and Arc (Fallt, 2004), Komet has displayed an uncanny sense of space and time, and contributed to defining the "clicks + cuts" aesthetic.

Under his own name, Frank Bretschneider has also released the albums of microscopic laptop music Rand (Mille Plateaux, 1999), still a bit too fragmented, the mature Curve (Mille Plateaux, 2001), Aerial Riverseries (Whatness, 2002), Party Of Two Parts (Underscan, 2003), which recycles (or, better, "loops") samples of his old band, and the "love songs" of Looping I-VI (12k, 2004), which are his most abstract structures.

Balance (Mille Plateaux, 2002) was a collaboration between Komet's Frank Bretschneider and Taylor Deupree.

The four-track EP Go! (Audio) "restores" old compositions.

Audio.NL (Korm Plastics, 2012) is a compilation of singles and other material.

Kippschwingungen (june 2007) documents a live performance for subharmonic sound generator.
