BIOGRAPHY

schtum’s music conjures the sense of abstract movement in sound. Performing live on instruments augmented by distortion and reverb, the duo transforms microtonal interferences and feedback into dark, often brutal electronic sequences. The dynamic contrast between raw expression and clinical precision is the prime mover in their music, whether in the studio or on stage.

On the new album “Sequencing Detachments”, the Viennese duo schtum transforms elements of electronic dance music into detailed, oversized sound close-ups. Through repetitive structures, layers of sound eventually detach themselves, thus developing a life of their own, leaving behind an abstract impression of emotional depth. schtum continues the minimalist approach of their debut “Feed” on this new release.

schtum has performed at renowned festivals for experimental electronic and contemporary music
such as CTM in Berlin’s Berghain, Sonic Protest in Paris, Donaufestival Krems, Novas
Frequencias in Rio de Janeiro, Wien Modern or Gamma Festival in St. Petersburg.
