Faubel & Schreiber make music with machines and electronic circuits that function according to their very own logic, exploring the tonality of material and the very materiality of sound.
As they explain, “we want to give voices to things, and do so by careful manipulation of the machines and their surroundings”. For the audience, this process is made transparent by placing the machines under an overhead projector, so that their movements cast a silhouette, a kind of ‘shadow play’.
They conclude, that “similar to live coding it’s our improvisation with the machines that matters. It’s a live experimentation in search for patterns, musical structures and minimal techno that we like to dance to”.
