Burkhard Beins - zither, handheld electronics, electro-acoustic treatments
Michael Renkel - acoustic nylon-string guitar, analogue synth, electronics
Derek Shirley - bass synthesizer
While guitarist Michael Renkel and percussionist Burkhard Beins, who know each other
from 20 years of collaborative work as Activity Center
and 10 years within the Berlin Septet Phosphor,
concentrate predominantly on the electro-acoustic side of their rich instrumental
scope, bass-player Derek Shirley, who works with the Noise-Rockers of Monno and the Jazzers
of Hotelgäste alike, radically replaces his instrument by a bass synth.
A combination of acoustic guitar, zither and analogue synthesizers might point at 1970's experimentalism : if only the hippies would have done something like this! Sonically there might be references to the industrialism of 1980's projects like Dome, Nurse with Wound or Zoviet:France : if at all. In fact this is hand played live-electro-acoustic music for the 21st century.
