People we had the pleasure to meet during our OnMedia experience:
Born in 1947 and based in Hamburg, Tietchens listened to German radio as a child and heard pioneering electric transmissions by the likes of Stockhausen and Gottfried Michael Koenig. Since 1990, he has taught sound at Hamburg university. Synthesizer experimentalist and musique concrète producer Asmus Tietchens began recording in the mid-’60s his own home experiments with crude reverb devices; he picked up a MiniMoog several years later. Influenced by atonal Kraut-rockers like Cluster and Faust, Tietchens met Okko Bekker, beganning a partnership that lasted for decades . After Tangerine Dream’s Peter Baumann heard a tape of his work, he produced Tietchens’ debut album Nachtstücke, released in 1980 on Sky Records. After a period focused on surprisingly accessible electronic pop, with 1984′s Formen Letzter Hausmusik (recorded for Nurse with Wound’s United Dairies label) began a period of more abstract, concrète recordings.

Attila Faravelli (1976) lives and works in Milan. He studied with Alvise Vidolin and Michele Tadini. His first record with Die Schachtel, Underneath the surface (2009), comes after many experiences as a composer of music for theater, dance, silent films and art installations. His research investigates the relationship between sound and the materials with which it is produced, the recording medium on which is fixed and the acoustic environment in which it is produced.
