zeitkratzer is sound made visible, tangible, bodily—a corporal live music experience. The physicality of sound is celebrated through extended instrumental techniques, a deep understanding of the musical material, and amplified traditional instruments. It will make you expect more from music than you ever did!

zeitkratzer is perverting musical genres. Keiji Haino meets Karlheinz Stockhausen meets Laurie Anderson meets folk music meets Whitehouse meets Serbian war songs meets Terre Thaemlitz meets Iannis Xenakis meets Lou Reed meets The Shape Of Jazz To Come meets Arnold Schönberg. The joy of the intensity of sound and music: a challenge to both composers and non-academic noise-makers from the most talented performers, improvisers, sound artists and composers around.
