Oxide: Christoph Irmer & Hans Tammen
“If a hundred crackpot 4-track cassettes met in the eye of a cyclone, the result could near what’s heard in Oxide.”
Massimo Ricci / Touching Extremes
Christoph Irmer – violin
Hans Tammen – endangered guitar + violin live sound processing
Since their first performances together in the beginning of the 80s, Christoph Irmer (violin) and Hans Tammen (guitar) have developed a unique style with violin and guitar electronics. Their music changes frequently between soundscapes and fierce sonic outbursts, and draws extensively from their almost 40 year long collaboration.
