Once upon a time it was a brand new “Roland TB-303 Bass Line” - synthesizer
During his work with electronic music since 1991, Michel Winterberg played in various projects and developed a knowledge in producign and mastering.
In "Symbiotic Distortion", Michel Winterberg uses sound sources from electromagnetic interference of everyday devices such as fans, computers and power supplies. With these devices and special microphones he improvises, from granular to repetitive or carrying soundscapes and lets the listeners immerse themselves in a psychedelic noise cosmos. The electromagnetic fields are made audible to us live by special radiation detectors. "Symbiotic Distortion" does not use a real sequencer, but only the improvised sounds, which are processed with dealy and effect loops and played back partly repetitively. To intensify the live performance, there are sound reactive visuals that contains self-programmed, abstract, flowing video glitches.
cosmotecho ))) is initiated by the artist Denis Handschin and relates data of the cosmic background radiation and transforms them into sound. With live act events we are converting the sound back into electromagnetic waves to send them back to the universe. The first experimental live act by Stefan Rudin and Michel Winterberg with the cosmobil was on 21. December 2012 at the Mittleren Rheinbrücke in Basel, Switzerland. Videos / Fotos.
