Michael Vorfeld has been working intensively with the photographic medium since the 1970’s. The graphic and photographic works shown in this exhibition were all realized with a large size analogue camera. The images provide a finely nuanced and filigree view into an unconventional, independent, and individually formed world within contemporary percussion music.
In their very sound oriented work, the two percussionists Michael Vorfeld and Christian Wolfarth create music that transcends the boundaries of improvised and composed music, as well as those between instrumental and electro acoustic music, showing the influence of electronic music on contemporary musicians. By using unconventional playing methods and individually arranged set-ups of percussion instruments these two drummers create polyrhythmic structures and textures as well as soundscapes full of overtones, leading to a unique and distinctive world of sound; pure acoustic music, absolutely live!

Michael Vorfeld (Berlin), musician and visual artist plays percussion and self designed string instruments and realises electro-acoustic sound pieces. He works in the field of experimental, improvised music and sound art. Michael Vorfeld creates installations and performances with light and sound, works with photography and film.

Christian Wolfarth (Zurich) works as a drummer at the interface of improvised music, electro-acoustic sound art and Jazz. Besides his frequent solo activities he is a member of numerous ensembles. He regularly works with dancers, for theatre, movies and videos.
