It’s a simply fantastic double-bill of morr music artists at the Grüner Salon this March with Austrian B. Fleischmann and Berlin based guitarist F.S. Blumm supporting.
Born in Austria’s capital Vienna in 1975, Bernhard Fleischmann got his musical start on the piano at age eight before turning to drums five years later as a student at the Hinterbrühl music school.
He drummed in live bands for a seven year stretch, from 1988 to 1995, playing with Speed Is Essential and Sore!.In 1998, the electronic music of the Vienna scene started catching his ear, and he switched over to the digital realm and began creating music on his laptop.

Well-versed in the art of rhythm at this point, it seemed a natural process to make beats based on complex time signatures and wild syncopated fills. Sandwiched by singles and EPs, A Choir of Empty Beds and Welcome Tourist were among his most notable releases. And there is “The Humbucking Coil”, Bernhard Fleischmann’s third solo record released in February 2006 – euphoric pop in slow motion, rustling rhythm patterns, songs that linger and indulge.

F.S.Blumm´s music is so idiosyncratic that the popular namedropping doesn´t help that much to describe it. Nevertheless bands and projects like Gastr Del Sol or others who work on the combination of improvised elements with pop-approved structures come to mind, as well as American folk pioneer John Fahey or minimal music representatives Pauline Oliveros and David Behrman for their similar sense of poise and release.
