Repetition: Into the Tohuwabohu, cultural patterns are passed. Saam Schlamminger (aka Chronomad) learned to play numerous instruments, such as frame drums and lutes from various regions of the world. He is an expert in rhythms and tunings and repetitive contemporary electronic dance music and in styles that are disappearing from the cultural sonic memory;.
Burnt Friedman Nonplace owner, producer, sound and drum machinist, is fascinated by rhythm and metre, by straight and odd time signatures. Together, Schlamminger and Friedman create spaces of resonance ‑ ur-crackling, dissect takes of sonic memory with origins lying in the drums and flutes.
Place in actuality: Schlamminger and Friedman play in the traditions of change
In the beginning there were echoes. (Johannes Ismaiel-Wendt)
Place: They are off and may be out of place, but at least they are always in motion, in time, in place, in the form of all kinds of strange combinations moving about, not necessarily forward, sometimes against each other, contrapuntally yet without one central theme. (Edward Said)
