Guy Bored brings acid. The Linz based electronic inventors and turnbuttonist Andreas Kurz (also known as Washer) and Andre Zogholy have dedicated themselves to the 303 sounds in a modernized incarnation. Their analog tracks have not missed the last 15 years of music evolution. With deep basses sometimes going towards Dubstep, dull sinus sounds occasionally make you think of Pan Sonic. Their live sets are almost endless machine jams that build up continuously to their climax.
Since 2004 Clemens Mairhofer, Lucas Norer and Sebastian Six are active members of the artist group FAXEN. Their musical mainstay is May He Hetal? and whoever thinks of heavy metal now is wrong. Heavy electronics would be more appropriate, because MHH leave much to chance. Keyboards are manipulated (keyword: circuit bending) and interfaces are quickly built by themselves, so that experimenting doesn’t get boring. Vinyl records, field recordings and all kinds of electronic stuff are used for sound generation. Nothing drifts off in arbitrariness, but is put together with a sure taste and a knack for the right tension curve.
