Room 2, South Gallery II, Bermondsey
Born in Munich in 1954 and living in Switzerland since 1966, Günter Müller is originally an improviser and percussionist. Since 1981 he has been playing a unique drum set with a mobile pick-up and microphone system, which he created himself. The system allows hand-generated sounds on drums and percussion to be modulated electronically.
Since 1998 Müller has included minidiscs, and since 2002 iPods, in his electronic set. Currently he plays iPods and electronics, improvising with sounds he creates on a computer, primarily based on cymbals and other percussion instruments.
Müller has collaborated and recorded with a large number of musicians, including Jim O’Rourke, Butch Morris, Keith Rower and Marclay. He has performed all over Europe as well as in Russia, USA, Canada, Latin America, Japan, Korea, New Zealand and Australia. Müller has released numerous recordings on FOR 4 EARS, the label he founded in 1990, as well as on Erstwhile, Cut, Grob, List, Audiosphere, Amoebic, Mikroton and Creative Sources amongst others.
In this performance, Müller will explore with sounds he has created earlier, based on the original sounds of Marclay’s installation.
All of the performances are free and open to the public, spaces will be allocated on a first-come first-served basis.
