And this is what the PR-text says about it:
“It is the world’s first techno record (more…)
In this article I will explain the technical background of my techno music robots. Maybe you have seen my giant MR-808 Robot. Thats where I started dealing with Robotic Electronic Music (R.E.M.) on a daily basis. Since then my whole life is dedicated to experimenting, building and playing shows with music robots. I wake up with them in the morning and think about music robots at night. Why? Because I think that electronic music has to evolve and I am very bored with music synthezisers, modular synthezisers, samplers, and computers. I want Future! Robots! And Techno!
My music robots always consist of four parts:
I spent the last week at peoplefestival Berlin, a crazy gathering of around 160 Artists. The People Festival Berlin is a week long experience at the Funkhaus Berlin, it incorporates such great artists as our whole tribe from Mouse on Mars , Zach from beirut, Stargaze and big names as The National, Erlend Oye, Bon Iver and much more .. over 15660 Artists. It was a intense week of forth and back, rehersals and Sound Experiments, much differnt to any other music festival, because it doesnt present pre-made “shows” but celebrates the moment of wild blind-date music mashups in a free and open surrouning.
Besides the uncountable projects that arose there, we also rehearsed with Mouse on Mars – for the upcoming show in Hamburg’s Elbphilharmonie!
It will be a gloriuous celebration of their last Record #dimensionalpeople, an Andi and Jan invited a whole bunch of the colaborators to Hamburgs finest music venue. I will contribute with some robots, and am so happy to visit and play this venue for the first time.

Ay! I just spend four days on the Moogfestival 2018 in Durham / US and they were the most intense and spaced out in a while.
Not only was it my first ever performance in the US, but also the mix of jet lag, several performances, my installation ‘Soft Manipulator’, talking conversations and countless interviews made it very unreal. My own TRIPODS One performance took place at the old wooden Durham ballroom and despite a no-soundcheck schedule it worked out well. After that I contributed with some robots for Mouse on Mars and Spank Rock Official’s Dimensional People performance.
I also managed to meet Herb Deutsch, 86y old co-creator of the moog synth and listen to his stories; watch Suzanne Ciani, visionary synth guru play here Buchla Synth and finally to drink vodka the self-proclaimed Queen of Canabis Yoga.
#Moogfestival, I’ll definitely come back!
