Biblioteq Mdulair

primitive electronics | hypnotic noise | brain dance

Biblioteq Mdulair is an orchestra of analogue function generators for four hands played by polish/swiss/french duet Emma Souharce and Daniel Maszkowicz. With its various oscillators, sine waves, and frequency sweeps, this lab installation produces all possible sounds, generating waveforms, exploring vibrations, tickling resonances, and installing breathing beats. These primitive electronics machines fill the space with a magma of sound waves for a dizzying sonic experience.

Fundamental acoustic waveforms are to be experienced by the body and mind, each performance has a storyline with a specific narrative still allowing the two artists to freely improvise from one chapter to another. The public that enters this intense and fascinating sensory laboratory is drown to various atmospheres from soft meditative strolls to massive earthquakes.

Biblioteq Mdulair is a duo playing function generators, but they often appear as an audiovisual installation with the analogue modular video synthesizer SYNKIE, driven by its creators Michael Egger, Max Egger and Flo Kaufmann from collective [ a n y m a ]. This massive double installation creates a total audiovisual symbiosis, with dozens of CTR televisions in the space. Expanded TV and has been shown in Switzerland, France, Germany, Belgium and through eastern Europe while touring in 2017.

They released their first LP in may 2018 with label Copypasta Editions and Aussenraum Records.

More press and quotes: https://biblioteqmdulair.wordpress.com/about/

« (…) la quiétude tranquille des sons synthétiques, du circuit électrique que l’on n’ose déranger, comme laissés à eux-mêmes, emporte l’écoute, particulièrement à la fin de la face A où le sillon fermé laisse le son prendre son envol, perdre les repères, devenir musique et partir, s’en aller en liberté, pure électricité (et mécanique) qui échappe au contrôle de ses créateurs et en vient à imposer sa durée, son état du monde. »
Kasper Toeplitz in Ring Modulation 28
