Artist Profile: centrozoon

This is a short clip from centrozoon's radio concert.

Previously, Markus Reuter and Bernhard Wöstheinrich have played live on Galactic Travels individually. For show #1022 on November 3, 2016, Markus and Bernhard played a live radio concert. A short clip from this concert is in the player above.

CENTROZOON: Currently, centrozoon is a trio that is interested in the creation of music in experimental settings. It has existed in several forms over the years. Current members are Bernhard Wöstheinrich (synthesizers, electronics), Markus Reuter (guitars, electronics) and Tobias Reber (electronics).

From the beginning of centrozoon, the group has had an interest in "experimental" music not only in improvised sound experiments but also in the improvisation of form and structure – improvisation beyond the individual sounding moment. Music as an exploration of possibilities and extremes, playing with boundaries.

Centrozoon has played concerts and appeared live on air in the USA, UK, Finland, Netherlands, Belgium, Luxemburg, Austria, Switzerland and Germany. Notable appearances include concerts at the Ars Electronica 2004 Festival (Linz, A), Virtual Arts Day (Helsinki, SF) and a UK Tour including performances at Burning Shed Nights (Norwich, UK).

Centrozoon is currently mostly working as a trio with Swiss member Tobias Reber, who unfortunately was not able to be on this tour. You can see and hear the trio in action in the upcoming “Hununpenti” DVD and CD.

Following their radio concert on Galactic Travels, Markus and Bernhard went on to play on other radio shows and concerts on the U.S. east coast, concentrating on the northeast. This tour celebrated their 20th anniversary. Bernhard and Markus are in a retrospective mode for this tour, mixing their space music and experimental electronica in varying ratios, depending on the nature of the context of each performance.
Having started to perform together in 1996, this series of concerts is a personal celebration of a long-term artistic collaboration. For part of this tour, they will be be joined by Nocturne Blue.
