The ‘real-virtual’ analogue-digital electronic duo of Lehn and Schmickler has been working since its first meeting in December 1998 during the German premiere of the Music in Movement Electronic Orchestra (aka MIMEO) in Cologne. They have been extensively touring in Europe, the USA and Japan and performed at Experimental Intermedia/NYC, Mills/Oakland, Bard College, Lampo/Chicago, Princeton University, Festival Wittener Tage fuer Neue Kammermusik, AMPLIFY/Tokyo, CCA/Glasgow, Darmstadt and many other known presenters of contemporary and electronic music. They released several successful CD and vinyl productions on labels such as ersthwhile records, a-musik and mego. Most recently they published their fifth duo album “Neue Bilder” on Mikroton.
Leprechaun Catering might not need an introduction. In the event that they do – Jason Willett and Tom Boram have been doing absurd, dense, and noisy improvised music for *almost* two decades. Their sound combines aspects of free jazz, musique concrete, new wave, punk, rock and roll, post-punk, muzak, dixieland, techno, folk, antarctic, kosmische, demonic, cheese, pentatonic, freudian, moogsploitation, noise, odious, skunk, Bacharach, and exotica into a “heady” mix of free jazz, musique concrete, new wave, punk, rock and roll, post-punk, muzak, dixieland, techno, folk, antarctic, kosmische, demonic, cheese, pentatonic, freudian, moogsploitation, noise, odious, skunk, Bacharach, and exotica.
