review on Baggage Reclaim:

Assuming that what one expects from a Festival of Experimental music is to be
surprised, then Friday night didn't disappoint from the very start. The first act was a duo of two women, Billy Roisz and Angelica Castello on "recorders and video", "Recorders" somewhat stretched the definition from the things we tooted on at primary school, as one of them was a boxy tube about six foot long - when blown into it produced eerie wheezing, ghostly sounds as the player's breath was routed around the internal catacombs of this monstrous thing - the "video" was pretty arcane too, an old telly and various bits and pieces of electrical equipment (placed on doilies I was pleased to see) produced crackles and noise whilst a projection on the wall seemed to freeze sound waves.
It was enigmatic and decidedly peculiar, but more importantly rather wonderful and evocative. There was an interplay between these two divergent sounds - one the very human sound of breath, the other the fractured noise of obsolete consumer electronics, that was baffling, witty and full of unexpected turns. I liked it. .... (Richard Sanderson)

die schrauber

Hans Tammen - endangered guitar, live sound processing
Joker Nies - omnichord, circuit bent instruments
Mario DeVega - SPK®, turntables, glitch sampling

Hailed by their critics as "fiercely intrepid improvisers", who would "win any title fight against the bastard sons of onkyo", the trio DIE SCHRAUBER produces a wide variety of dense musical textures and high-energy interaction. With veteran circuit bender Joker Nies (Cologne), sampling artist Mario deVega (Mexico City) and Hans Tammen (New York) on Endangered Guitar and live sound processing, the trio exerts extreme control over their bizarre instruments. As "Signal To Noise" observed: "They exploit their remarkable control and on-the-fly flexibility on this caffeinated exchange of pointillist fractals, oscillations, whirrs, drones, whizzes, buzzes, slurps, whoops, pops and clacks that bombard and scorch the ears with a heat-seeking intensity."

Hans Tammen (New York) works with a bizarre collection of mechanical devices on his "endangered" guitars, and uses an interactive software of his own design to rework his sounds in realtime. His music has been described by "Signal To Noise" as "...a killer tour de force of post-everything guitar damage".

Joker Nies (Cologne) modifies or builds his instruments to his needs. Apart from other techniques, he acts as a connector of circuits not intentionally related. He touches and combines the circuitry of the instruments through skin-resistance, creating spontaneous and delicate music with subtle control.

Mario de Vega (Mexico City) works with several self-designed sound objects, analog and modified electronics, turntables and computer based interfaces. His work moves towards glitch sampling, microtonal scratches, pips, squeaks, and needlesharp noise clusters developed by a wide range of self-design and hacked gadgets.
