Deus EX Machina
Release is planned for April 2011.
Sean Derrick Cooper Marquardt, born in Chicago (USA), now living in Berlin, is a performance artist, musician, free improvisator and composer of experimental music. The compositions from Sean Derrick Cooper Marquardt are performed and recorded live using the accidental guitar method.
Sean:"Our compositions inspired by a artistic quest to not refer to a particular sound, but to particular ideals. The desire to break away from fixed stylistic forms, searching for the iconoclastic illuminated windows, windows that can be both an opening and a barrier to unexpected truths of the scratches and irregularites of advancing or ascending patterns that are plunge and purified from there ornamental like structures.
Lind Bohm is the founder of Avachorda, musician and composer, working with combinations of computers, machines and real instruments, centred on the possibilities of electronic and acoustic music. Focus is on the interconnections between styles, electronic and acoustic.
Lind:" I produced Sean's Album "Gesang der Geister" and was ecstatic about the flow and the feeling in his composition. For the april wire magazine cd compilation issue, we composed a track, based on free improvisation. From the start we found a common understanding and approach, like completing the square".
With their solo projects, Sean and Lind are live on stage within the AVACHORDA label night in London, UK.
