Geargrind & Tschänz

Geargrind & Tschänz

Germany Tübingen

Germany, Tübingen
Gearind & Tschänz is an audio-visual duo that created many immersive, danceable live performances. They usually play in clubs and have special focus on showing the audience how music emerges from an idea to a melody to a full-fledged rhythmic experience that carries you away. Throughout the last years their sound and visual aesthetic has grown darker and more spherical.

For several years Geargrind is extemporising electronic music, live and with only little preparation before each show, which makes every performance unique. No software is involved in any of his live shows. Instead, he uses digital and analog instruments like the battery powered synths of the KORG Volca series and other noise and drum machines to create a sound that oscillates between spheric-synthetic drone and blackened ambient. He uses part prepared sequences part live sequenced melodies and beats as building blocks to create unique arcs of tension for each performance. He layers drone sounds that culminate to roaring crescendos - carried by anguished screams, washed out live guitar sounds and cold, stomping drum sequences.

Tschänz is a computer scientist based in Tübingen, Germany, born in Karlsruhe in 1991. He studied Media Informatics with strong focus on Visual Computing, Computer Vision and Computer Graphics and later on Machine Learning, respectively Neural Networks. In all his studies, the focus is always laid on visually appealing content generation, driven by the beauty of mathematical concepts. After experimenting around with generative visualizations, he quickly changed focus on real-time audio-reactive projections in an interdisciplinary context.
