D/B Recommended: Stefan Schneider & Bill Wells @ .HBC Berlin | 29.01.2011

Following the release of their Pianotapes album on Karaoke Kalk last year Bill Wells & Stefan Schneider will give a long awaited Berlin show at .HBC this month as part of the CTM Concerts series.

[audio:Bill Wells Trio – Presentation Piece 1.mp3]With a DJ set by label owner Strobocop, you can count on this being a very special evening.

Scotsman Wells is firmly rooted in the Glasgow indie scene with solo releases on the Pastels Geographic label and collaborations with the likes of Future Pilot AKA, Isobel Campbell (formerly of Belle & Sebastian) and Aidan Moffat (Arab Strap). While Stefan Schneider is originally from Düsseldorf in West Germany and is best known as a member of electronica/post-rock group To Rococo Rot he has also had solo releases on the Scape label for instance under his Mapstation moniker.

The two had already collaborated previously, together with Barbara Morgenstern and Annie Whitehead, on the Pick Up Sticks album on Leaf and most recently Paper of Pins, also on Karaoke Kalk.

Pianotapes is their first outing as a duo and sees the men take the realtime tape loop editing of classical piano to a new level of ambience.

This is to our knowledge the very first time that Bill Wells will appear on a Berlin stage; an event certain Digital in Berlin editors with a passion for Scottish indie have been waiting a long time to witness.
