Strotter Inst. – 11 July 2013

By Anton  //  Performances  //  No Comments

Strotter Inst. from Switzerland creates music through the use of old, modified, Lenco-turntables which he modifies and manipulates in countless ways. Rubber bands are affixed to the rotating turntable and plucked by the stylus, records have tape affixed in patterns to create textural rhythms, electrical current is sent via live wires to the needle to create pulsing feedback. These sounds are then manipulated by Strotter Inst. through effects pedals to create warm and dense sound structures, looping, rumbling rhythms and multilayered broken beats.

The music of Strotter Inst. has more in common with the anti-electronica of Pan Sonic or the early minimalism of Steve Reich, than to other experimental turntablists like eRikm, Philip Jeck or Christian Marclay. It’s roots are not in improvised music, but in industrial culture, the electronic avantgarde and electro-acoustic composition. Strotter Inst. has collaborated live with Sudden Infant, Maja Ratkje and others. Strotter Inst. has performed throughout Europe, Russia, China, Japan, USA and Bolivia.
