Our set-up for the trio at the gallery






Knut and Gunter soundcheck. It turned out to be a very nice concert

















How does this work?





Spot the mistake. One of these buildings is an actual church. We stumbled across this amazing display of public art on a day out


Here you can see the simulated church in the foreground (below Munich stadium), and the ancient church hiding in the trees on the right


We stopped off at this hill to catch sight of the alps, as there was a föhn which produces the optical illusion of zooming the alps in to the edge of the city. Munich shows itself to be tidy and flat. It also has a beautiful wild river running through the centre of it

Tuba in the t-u-b-e


Soundchecking. Perhaps time for a little background. Børre (tuba) is a masterful Nowegian musician, member of No Spaghetti Edition, No, Gutvik, Circulasione Totale Orchestra, My Midnight Creeps, and bardal caminada mølstad trio. Gunter (viola) is a member of the Munich Philharmonic Orchestra, Debussy-Trio München, and he has a solo project called peltzer-pv. He works alongside Michael in a duo called Violet Cab. Michael (live processing) has a rich history in electronic music and computing. In 1973 he was a member of the group Amon Düül II and from the mid 70s ’til the mid 90s he developed sofware and hardware for music computing. He currently works as a music producer at his studio Plan Blue

Landshut concert for The Bosch Experience: Gunter Pretzel, Michael Feller, Børre Mølstad, Knut Aufermann and Sarah Washington






The room was nicely atmospheric for the first public performance of this group. We had last been together in Michael’s studio back in the summer of 2006

BRUSSELS October 2008

Oscillatomium at the Atomium in Brussels as part of the White Nights festival


We hosted a night of radio art in the Ilya Prigogine sphere. Prigogine was awarded his 1977 Nobel prize for chemistry for his explanation of oscillation in chemical reactions










The phenomenon of oscillation was our theme for a night of radio broadcasting live from the Atomium in Brussels at the Nuit Blanche festival. Oscillatomium showcased electronic music from the memorable and influential Expo ’58 in Brussels and live performances by exponents of today’s experimental electronic music scene. Original works for radio were offered by an intriguing array of international radio artists


The belly of the beast








We set up a temporary radio studio and performance space. Our live broadcast in London, Lisbon, New York and Brussels featured commissioned radio works from Ian Helliwell, Wendy Van Wynsberghe, Johnny Head-in-Air, Élise Meriau and Ricardo Reis




Knut tests the PA, Dinah Bird performs









Our other guests: Jacques Foschia, Jean-Philippe Renoult, Élise Meriau, and martiensgohome. As the night wore on the wind blew stronger, and the Atomium rocked..!
