descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Ground" was recorded in GROUND Hodynka Gallery during SWISS NOISE festival in 2017. The music they played is playful, analytical, mentally disturbed where they mix a wide selection of timbres, textures and sonic entities to form propulsive rhythmically based layers of perfectly arranged chaos and ecstatic order."-Mikroton


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."
