For his new project, Dirk Dresselhaus aka Schneider TM has over the years recorded sound material from construction sites in Berlin – a city constantly under construction, like they say.
In concert, he will melt such field recordings with electronic live improvisation, while videoartist Lillevan, well known as a pioneer of intelligent live-visuals, will screen projections all over the site.
Dirk Dresselhaus was born on 28.08.1970 in Bielefeld, Germany. Since the late 80’s he is active in different musical fields. From 1989 until 1997 he played and sang in indie-noiserock and -pop bands like Locust Fudge or Hip Young Things.

After that he became more active in electronic music with his project Schneider TM, which is responsible for a couple of experimental electro-freak-pop albums and mini-hits like ‚Reality Check’ or a coverversion of a song by The Smiths called ‚The Light 3000’.
Next to many one-off projects like composing and recording music for movies, theater or radioplays, he plays & records with freeform noise-projects like Angel, Mr. Schmuck’s Farm and Real Time on a regular basis.
Since quite a while he frequently plays improv concerts on varying instruments like guitar, electronics, balaphon or using fieldrecordings. In 2007 Dirk Dresselhaus and Michael Beckett started their own indielabel MirrorWorldMusic.
Lillevan is an animation, video and media artist. He is perhaps best known as founding member of the visual / music group Rechenzentrum (1997-2008). Parallel to his work in Rechenzentrum, he has performed and collaborated with many artists from a wide array of genres, from opera to installation, from minimal electronic experimentalism to dance and classical music.
