MOVING SOUNDS FESTIVAL | CONCERT
SUNDAY, SEP 18 2011, 10:00 PM

The Austrian band Elektro Guzzi, who “go about as far as anyone has yet in distancing themselves from machine encroachment in dance music production” (Jordan Rothlein, Little White Earbuds) will bring their unique “quasi-unplugged” approach to techno dance music to this year’s Moving Sounds New York.
Rothlein goes on to say that “It’s easy to read their press sheet and pigeonhole them as the latest mnml reactionary fad, the techno equivalent of vegans who refuse to eat honey”, but then comes to a very different, much more nuanced conclusion as to what exactly makes Elektro Guzzi stand out. He finds that Bernhard Hammer, Jakob Schneidewind, and Bernhard Breuer (guitarist, bassist, and drummer, respectively) “respect digital technology, if not kind of love digital technology. These three Elektro Guzzi guys don’t just play their instruments like they’re machines; they turn them into ones and zeros. It’s imitation to the point of near-worship, and their embrace of loops and microsamples — purely as a compositional aesthetic, as YouTube proves they don’t use either — might very well make them an analog hardware junkie’s worst nightmare.”
The idea of playing techno using the means of a classic line-up was first conceived as a joke. But those who have experienced Elektro Guzzi live, know about the energetic qualities of the trio. Not to mention the ludicrous image-sound-gap in their performances.
