Mouse on Mars is one of Germany’s most eccentric and remarkable electronic music projects. With an anarchic hybrid sound swinging between uncontrolled chaos and meticulously arranged structures, Andi Toma and Jan St. Werner have created a unique musical idiom that nonetheless never settles into definite form – too unpredictable are the myriad modifications they continually implement. Unconstrained by schools of thought, conventions of genre, and the pressures of the music industry, they are charting their own very distinctive trajectory through the no-man’s-land between pop, art, club culture, and the musical avant-garde.

Mouse on Mars take over the Kunstbau with a sound installation for which they developed a site-specific composition. Working with and responding to the exhibition space, the installation transforms the Kunstbau itself into a gigantic stereophonic acoustic instrument.

Mouse on Mars have continually evolved their practice for twenty-five years, always asking new questions. The “compostruction” is part of their most recent acoustic research, inquiring both into the movement of sounds through time and space and aspects of psychoacoustic perception and the experience of sound: How can we define hearing and listening? How do we process acoustic information? How do our bodies respond to the physical movements of sound in space? How attentively can we observe the process of hearing itself? And in which other ways do we relate to our acoustic environment?

    Strictly brunettes. Indeed brunette one, brunette the other.
    Capricious by poetics the first by birth, smooth as a straight line the second. The birthplaces of both are Parthenopean. As for one rooted on the cliffs of Posillipo where she also spent the resilient months of the recent Pandemic, while the other belongs to that blood material that protrudes into the vessel of the great swarming artery of Via Foria and its labyrinthine environs, where she still resides.
