B/B/S/, formed in 2012 in Berlin, Germany, is a trio of Aidan Baker (Canada – of Nadja, Caudal) on guitar, Andrea Belfi (Italy – of Il Sogno Del Marinaio, Hobocombo) on drums/electronics, and Erik Skodvin (Norway – also of Svarte Greiner, Deaf Center) on guitar/violin.
While each player is active with several other projects of varying musical styles, as B/B/S/ they combine the similarities and explore the disparities of those other projects – bringing together drone, noise, polyrhythms, and experimental sounds – to create improvisational music which verges and touches on, both is and is not, free-jazz, drone, psychedelic, neo-classical, and spacerock.
B/B/S/ released their debut album Brick Mask, along with an accompanying 7”, Half Moon, in February 2013 on Miasmah Records. The live document Coltre/Manto was released January 2014 on Midira Records. The group is currently at work on a second full-length studio album.
Derek Holzer (1972) is an American instrument builder and sound artist based in Berlin DE, whose current interests include DIY analog electronics, the relationship between sound + space, media archaeology and the meeting points of electroacoustic, noise, improv and extreme music.
He has performed live, taught workshops and created scores of unique instruments and installations since 2002 across Europe, North and South America, and New Zealand.
The work of Claudio Rocchetti is a deep plunge into thick sound, investigating its innermost workings. Using a variety of devices such as turntables, audio cassettes, samplers, radios, and microphones, often incorporating other objects and traditional instruments, Berlin-based Rocchetti builds compelling structures that employ sound as sheer matter, mass, and impact.
