primitive electronics | hypnotic noise | brain dance

Biblioteq Mdulair is an orchestra made of some 15 analogue function generators for four hands played by polish/swiss/french duet Emma Souharce and Daniel Maszkowicz. With its oscilloscopes, sinusoidals, and frequency sweeps, this sound installation produces all kind of waveforms, exploring vibrations, tickeling resonances, and creating breathing beats. Those primitive electronics machines bring the soundspace down to a magma of waves for a dizzying acoustactile experience.

Bringing the fundamental acoustic waveform to the front stage so it can be experienced by the body and mind, each performance has a storyline with a scenario that allows the two artists to freely improvise from one chapter to another. The public that enters this intense and fascinating laboratory for sensorial experimentations is brought down to various atmospheres from a soft stroll to an earthquake.

Biblioteq Mdulair is mostly a music instrument, but the collective often collaborates with the analogue modular video synthesizer SYNKIE, driven by its creators Michael Egger, Max Egger and Flo Kaufmann from collective [ a n y m a ]. This massive double installation creates a total audiovisual symbiosis, with dozens of CTR televisions in the space, and has been shown at CERN, European Center for Nuclear Research, at Cave12 in Geneva and all throughout eastern Europe while touring in 2017. They released their first LP in may 2018 with label Copypasta Editions and Aussenraum Records.
