[CLANG010]

Hailed by their critics as “fiercely intrepid improvisers”, who would “win any title fight against the bastard sons of onkyo”, the trio DIE SCHRAUBER produces a wide variety of dense musical textures and high-energy interaction. With veteran circuit bender Joker Nies (Cologne), Mario DeVega (Berlin) on amplified objects and turntables, and Hans Tammen (New York) on Endangered Guitar and live sound processing, the trio exerts extreme control over their bizarre instruments.

As “Signal To Noise” observed: “They exploit their remarkable control and on-the-fly flexibility on this caffeinated exchange of pointillist fractals, oscillations, whirrs, drones, whizzes, buzzes, slurps, whoops, pops and clacks that bombard and scorch the ears with a heat-seeking intensity.”

Hans Tammen (New York) works with a bizarre collection of mechanical devices on his “endangered” guitars, and uses an interactive software of his own design to rework his sounds in realtime. His music has been described by “Signal To Noise” as “…a killer tour de force of post-everything guitar damage”.

Joker Nies (Cologne) modifies or builds his instruments to his needs. Apart from other techniques, he acts as a connector of circuits not intentionally related. He touches and combines the circuitry of the instruments through skin-resistance, creating spontaneous and delicate music with subtle control.

Mario DeVega (Berlin) works with several self-designed sound objects, analog and modified electronics, turntables and computer based interfaces. His work moves towards glitch sampling, microtonal scratches, pips, squeaks, and needlesharp noise clusters developed by a wide range of self-design and hacked gadgets.
