MARCUS SCHMICKLER (digital synthesizer & computer) and THOMAS LEHN (analogue synthesizer) first worked together in December 1998 as members of the storied electro-acoustic ensemble, Music In Movement Electronic Orchestra (aka MIMEO) in Cologne almost twenty years ago. Since then, they have collaborated extensively, touring in Europe, the USA and Japan, and performing at Experimental Intermedia, Mills College, Bard, Lampo, Princeton, and more. They released several highly-acclaimed recordings on labels, such as A-Musik, Mikroton, and Editions Mego. Their debut release, BART, on Erstwhile, is one of the high-water marks of contemporary synthesizer music. This is their second duo performance with Non-Event.

HOWARD STELZER is a composer of electro-acoustic music. Almost all of his sounds are generated by, processed by, recorded onto and played back out of cassette tapes and consumer-grade tape players. He isn’t sure how most of these things work. Stelzer operated the Intransitive Recordings label from 1997 until 2012. When he is not composing, Stelzer is a middle school math teacher in Lowell, MA, where he lives with his family in a big room behind a power plant.
