Modular synth duo Driftmachine started as a workshop where Andreas Gerth and Florian Zimmer, producers of an extensive back-catalog of records and projects, focused on synth exploration and search for a new approach for groove and bass-driven music. They perform live regularly, working with 2 modular systems functioning in sync.
Driftmachine’s sound is obsessive, symmetrical and multilayered; a deep and elegant language based on the shaky, unpredictable foundations of modular synthesis. Driftmachine’s third member during live acts is the video artist Mika Shkurat: a member of Nisantashi Primary School who explores classical video feedback techniques using an analogue LZX-based video-synth combined with a screen and live camera footage
Consciously working with coincidences, the duo Deep Water Cycle experiments with sounds on the border of music and noise. They explore everyday phenomena that usually go unnoticed and sonically fuse them into a synesthetic mix. Think sticky organic textures, fragments of voice fragments, flowing beats and circulating noises.
