There have been a few incarnations of Faust with different members trying to manage the band’s legacy. Now the original members Zappi Diermaier and Gunther Wüsthoff have taken a completely different path and founded a new lineup under the name faust (with a small f) which feels more committed to the original idea of a researching collective than to the administration of a history.
Fittingly, with Sonja Kosche and Elke Drapatz, two women are part of the lineup for the first time. Together with Jochen Arbeit and Andrew Unruh from Einstürzende Neubauten, Dirk Dresselhaus (Schneider TM) and Uwe Bastiansen, an inquisitive collective has been created. The resulting record “Daumenbruch” was released by the US label Erototox Decodings and will be available on vinyl for the first time at the concert.
Label founder Chandra Shukla will open the evening musically. The second act also promises quality and experimentation. Mute label boss Daniel Miller founded the Sunroof project with Depeche Mode (and many others) producer Gareth Jones, which composes exclusively with modular synthesizers. An evening when the past is transferred to the future.
