Artist Biographies:

"Born München, Germany, 1954; drums and electronics. Though born in Germany, Günter Müller has lived in Switzerland since 1966. From 1981 he has been playing a unique drum set with a mobile pick-up and microphone system of his own invention which allows hand-generated sounds on drums and percussion to be modulated electronically. Since 1998 minidiscs, and since 2002 an ipod, have been included in his electronic set. Nowadays he often plays ipod and electronics only.

Müller was a founding member of the trio Nachtluft, with Andres Bosshard and Jacques Widmer, a group that have created sound-installations and sound-architecture, and of the electronic quartet POIRE_Z with Erik M and Voice Crack. He has worked in a wide variety of contexts: solo; in ad-hoc groupings; and often in duo with, among others, Taku Sugimoto, Jason Kahn, Steinbrüchel, Norbert Möslang, Toshimaru Nakamura, Tomas Korber, Lê Quan Ninh, Keith Rowe, Erikm, Carlos Zingaro, Sachiko M, Michel Doneda and Fabrice Charles. Günter Müller runs the record label For 4 Ears.

"Norbert Möslang (born October 6, 1952 in St. Gallen ) is a Swiss improvisational musician (soprano saxophone, double bass clarinet, live electronics) and violin maker.

Möslang had piano lessons. He then learned autodidactically soprano saxophone and double bass clarinet. From 1972 worked for 30 years with Andy Guhl in a duo; Since 1984 they went on the road as a voice crack. With Erik M and Günter Müller, the duo expanded into the ensemble poire_z.

Möslang increasingly used "cracked" everyday electronics in his improvisations; He intervenes in the circuitry of everyday objects, re-connects them, "cracks their code" as he calls it, and converts them into musical instruments. He also played with Barbetomagus, Jim O'Rourke, Otomo Yoshihide, Keith Rowe, Carlos Zingaro, Irene Schweizer, Kurt Liedwart and Jason Kahn. He also composes film music. For his work on Peter Liechti's documentary The Humours of Insects, he won the Swiss film prize in 2010.

Möslang also works as a photographer."

"Since 1992, eRikm has extended the field of artistic experimentation on the international scene.

Maintaining a constant fusion between thought, instinct and sensitivity, he pursues a simultaneity of practices and addresses the interplay between various compositional modes, relating to and using all languages.

From his early experience as a guitarist through to his later visual work, he is a maverick genre-bender who breaks down anyone's attempts to conveniently classify him.

Quickly recognised as a virtuoso turntablist and sound artist (1996), eRikm has made a longlife habit of crossing all territories and " world-systems " deemed "independent", "institutional".

At the same time (1997), he has developed an open and aspirational approach toward the technological media, both as a means of development for a new economic model and as an instrument for creation, production and diffusion.

He deals with sounds like living organisms, constantly in flux, always open to the risk of accident or delight/unisson. As he plays with all these contradictions in his improvisations, his performance reaches new heights of intensity, trading off both understanding and sensation, seriousness and farce, anticipation and instinct.

His work references both the intimate and political, both popular and high culture, but without demonstration. Rather he creates a short-circuit connection between points with his live generated (and degenerated) material - from noise to reference - presenting multiple ways to capture each moment of the present in clear focus.

Throughout his career, collaborations have naturally occurred with his audiences and contemporaries, most notably : Luc Ferrari, Christian Marclay, Mathilde Monnier, Jerome Noetinger, FM Einheit... The kind of coincidences which have confirmed his instinctive search for transmutation, and to play on several levels.

Since 1997, on his own or with collaborators, eRikm has toured (with 5-7 on-tour projects to date), or created by request specific pieces, both transversal or for fixed spaces (record labels, radio, festivals, art centres...)

In the meanwhile, each time building on what has emerged before, the most personal fragments from his work (notably from his early artworks in photography, drawings, visual installations and video) continue to substantiate a singular kaleidoscopic vision.

Ultimately, eRikm's research resonates through all of his work, bordering scientific discovery and a poetic curiosity of the world.

eRikm is a Marseille based artist"
