1) DIE SCHRAUBER (Joker Nies, Mario de Vega, Hans Tammen) w/ Paul Geluso
2) Michael Vorfeld (amplified lightbulbs) + Satoshi Takeishi (amplified objects)
Under the name DIE SCHRAUBER, veteran circuit bender Joker Nies (Cologne), Mario deVega (Mexico City) on amplified objects and turntables, and Hans Tammen (New York) on Endangered Guitar and live sound processing, the trio produces a wide variety of dense musical textures and high-energy interaction, with Paul Geluso channeling the trio’s sounds through his newly designed “3D Sound Object”.
The duo of Michael Vorfeld and Satoshi Takeishi creates sounds out of incandescent lights and various amplified objects to create an analog and multi-layered sound and light performance.
