Reinhold Friedl (zeitkratzer) & Dirk Dresselhaus (SchneiderTM)
The two protagonists are coming from really different backgrounds: Dirk Dresselhaus released since the late ninties as Schneider TM several experimental-electronic Freakpop recordings. He startet in the 80ies Indipendent rock/pop-Postpunk and developed his personal approach to sound and structura as an autodidact, starting with guitar effect devices and 4-track homerecording. Reinhold Friedl studied mathematics and music, got scolarships and international commissions, and built up the ensemble zeitkratzer, disrespecting all musical frontiers. Si tt’s not satonishing, that both met for the first time, when zeitkratzer performed the Lou Reeds Metal Machine Music: Dirk Dresselhaus was restless enthusiastic about this unrestrained contemporary music group, succeeding to devote itself to the instrumentation of purely tuned guitar feedback.
Dresselhaus and Friedl started their cooperation, that happened over years in studios only: what happen’s if you put those strange inside-piano sounds – another domain where Friedl set standards – or those powerfull hupe piano-drones into Schneider TM’s electronic devices, modulating them with an incredible complex Feedback system and recursive effect settings? Sometimes violent, somtimes subtile, mostly large-scale sound fields, which always work out only one sound or noise, developing an overwhelming impact.
Reinhold Friedl plays pianoforte, harmonics, horse hair, metal sheet, fishing line, metal tube: inside-piano, extended piano; Dirk Dresselhaus plays oscillator, spring reverb, isolator, memory man, digital delay, mixing desk, lfo, noise generator, vibrator / time machine, pitch shifter, ring modulator. The 3CD-set REAL TIME is ready for release.
LOUIS & BEBE (Joanna Dudley & Schneider TM), live at Sophiensaele, Berlin Dec 2009.
Louis & Bebe (Joanna Dudley & Schneider TM) – audio version now available as download :
LOUIS & BEBE was conceived as a live theatrical performance in 2009 & 2010. The soundtrack features Joanna Dudley and Dirk Dresselhaus from Schneider TM.
LOUIS & BEBE are a maverick musical couple. Joanna Dudley is a long time music theatre performer and diva of Javanese pop and Dirk Dresselhaus has one famed foot in the electro pop scene and the other firmly planted in the world of improvised noise. Together they are LOUIS & BEBE. Whether brother and sister, evil twins or fated lovers; they are two sides of the same coin. LOUIS & BEBE is a journey in 3 chapters, from childhood- The Landing (Reaching for the Red Star Sky), through to the abundant beauty of life in full bloom- The Garden (Portraits of a Zoomorphic Couple) and finally death- The Graveyard (A Night with Two Moons). From human to animal and animal to vegetable, the life lines of LOUIS & BEBE are punctuated by the ringing of bells, the calling of birds and accompanied by their own sound track of song, pop & noise.
This audio version of LOUIS & BEBE is based on a live recording of a performance at Sophiensaele, Berlin in 2009 and was originally produced for the experimental music show ‘Klangkunst’ on Deutschlandradio Kultur.
