Matmos (US) "A Marriage of True Minds" album premiere
Atom™ (DE) (Uwe Schmidt) & Marc Behrens "Bauteile" stage premiere
To get the festival started, Matmos, an experimental electronic project founded in San Francisco in 1995 by the musicians Drew Daniel and MC Schmidt, will present the world premiere of their album The Marriage of Two Minds in HAU 1. The work emerged over the course of several years and is inspired by the Ganzfeld telepathy experiments for testing extra-sensory perception. Beforehand, AtomTM and Marc Behrens will perform the piece "Bauteile", a work commissioned by Deutschlandradio Kultur.The musicians start from the assumption that all musical structures exist in a kind of historical and stylistic weightlessness and can thus drift back and forth between all styles and periods.
