MODULAR & MEZZANINE PRESENTS:
PEDRO ARBULU (LIVE)
HVOB are Anna Müller and Paul Wallner. The duo has established itself on the international electronic music scene not just with its releases, but more significantly as a live act as well. HVOB performs live on stage and always with a drummer.
HVOB’s album “Trialog” was released in spring and continues to attract unwavering international interest. The interdisciplinary art project – prompting an invitation to perform a Boiler Room set in Vienna, touted by American Thump magazine as a contender for an “Album of the Year” award – is a perennial headliner on influential blogs and media such as XLR8R, Resident Advisor, i-D and ARTE after charting high on Beatport and iTunes.
At the same time HVOB’s world-wide tour continues to gather momentum, with concerts in cities from Cape Town and New York to Hong Kong and New Delhi.
STIMMING‘S productions are filled with a multitude of his own unique, charismatic field recordings, and he never uses the same sample twice. Nothing is sacred; sources of sound have included a coffee machine, children’s toys, loose change, a vinyl pressing plant, a 22.000 HP ship engine and an Ikea pizza cutter. “You just can’t get that type of material out of a synthesizer. And depending on how much I tweak it afterwards it can be a very natural ‘on this earth’ kind of feeling, or the exact opposite.”
STIMMING‘S second album “Liquorice” eschews the normal kick-clap/snare template by and large to explore more interesting and progressive territories, but always with that trademark sense of texture, emotion and discovery.
Before the release of his third, self-titled longplayer, STIMMING did something quite remarkable: Together with a friend he reworked his “November Morning” track into a classical arrangement and had the Brandenburgisches Staatsorchester perform and record the new version.
LP number four is called “Alpe Lusia” and has been produced in a secluded alpine hut in northern Italy. In order to refrain from distractions and present-day influences, STIMMING isolated himself for a month to create the first real conceptual album of his career.
And innovation kept coming: STIMMING recently played multiple performances on the 4D sound system –one of the most forward thinking sound systems worldwide. It allows him to move individual sound sources in all four dimensions in real time while the audience stands inside the music itself. In the future he will continue to perform his special sets on a regular basis.
STIMMING performs all over the globe on a regular basis, from large music festivals to the most intimate club settings. All continents have seen his eclectic live sets. Worth to mention is a special bond that exists between STIMMING and South Africa, where his frequent visits have earned him an extremely loyal fanbase.
Although STIMMING wouldn’t embellish himself with it, his remixes for the likes of Claude VonStroke,Nina Kraviz, Stephan Bodzin and Robert Babicz to name but a few have further spread his influence amongst the discerning House and Tech community, and cemented his reputation therein.
