Jochen Arbeit of Einstürzende Neubauten & Dirk Dresselhaus aka Schneider TM present the monthly concert & performance series ATK – Aufladetechnische Konferenz -to establish a platform for experimental and playful results of sound & performance research.
Likeminded musicians & performers of different artistic fields will be invited to ATK to meet spontaneously and create something discrete and temporary. This time, the invitees are Günter Schickert, Guido Henschel, Brendan Dougherty and Psicedelico Holzenklotz.
German guitarist Gunter Schickert was probably the only musician to rival Manuel Göttsching in guitar experiments during the 1970s. Coming from a free-jazz background, he embraced the “space-echo guitar” and indulged in the brainy improvisations of Samtvogel (Brain, 1974) and Überfallig (Sky, 1979 – Bureau B, 2012).
