My main instrument is the No-Input-Mixer, which I have been playing since 1998. I chanced upon it in my old home studio when I was exploring a Burroughsian notion of imploding systems.Basically, I connect the mixer in a way that is “wrong” according to its original usage, culling sounds from the silent channels of a device wholly dependent on external sources. This process results in a system that is quite unexpected, very sensitive to physical touch, and which capable of massive complex sound textures as well as delicate and refined sounds.
I have been playing this system as my main solo instrument, as well as in various groups and ensembles. Over the years I have develops various setups around the mixer, extending it with electronics, digital processing, reel-to-reel machines, resonating objects, and even incorporating acoustic input into the no-input chain.
Projects which involve the No-Input-Mixer include LIETTERSCHPICH, CADAVER EYES, HYPERION ENSEMBLE, SPECIAL OLYMPICS and a few others.
