Schneider TM - "SPARK"
Schneider TM plays an improvised live set with the prototype of the electro-acoustic experimental guitar "SPARK", which he has developed over the last few months together with the luthiers Kora Jünger and Frank Deimel from Deimel Guitarworks.
In addition to conventional magnetic and piezo pickups, some of which are installed in different positions in the body such as the headstock etc. for expanded sound possibilities, the guitar also has playable reverb springs, one of which is attached to the tremolo construction and can be tensioned. The different sound sources can be combined via a global selector switch and sent to an integrated electronic LesLee, which oscillates back and forth between the signals and is connected to CV In & Out sockets for integrating e.g. modular synthesizers via control voltage. The "SPARK" can not only be played acoustically, electrically and electronically, but as an electro-acoustic sound object it also offers possibilities for playing techniques that are not typical for guitars.
Schneider TM is the internationally reknown multidimensional music project of Dirk Dresselhaus which oscillates extensively between adventurous electronic pop-music and experimental, sometimes improvised freeform music, while occasionally bringing these and other opposing elements together.
In addition to music for film, radio plays, theater and rather experimental performance projects, his oeuvre includes over 50 albums and works with artists and bands such as Zappi W. Diermaier & faust, Ilpo Väisänen (die ANGEL, ex-Pan sonic), John Duncan, Hildur Guðnadóttir, Oren Ambarchi, Lucio Capece, BJ Nilsen, Jochen Arbeit (Einstürzende Neubauten), Kptmichigan, Günter Schickert, Damo Suzuki (ex-CAN), Reinhold Friedl (zeitkratzer), Locust Fudge, Station 17, Lillevan and Tomoko Nakasato as well as studio productions for To Rococo Rot, Mutter, Chris Imler, Golden Diskó Ship, Ziguri and others.
