Millennium

 

Adopting a corporate identity is not only for rising businessmen anymore. Artists and weirdos such as DIS and LOGO are co-opting the co-opters these days, and we can now add Ville Haimala and Norman Palm’s Millennium project to the list.

November 10, 2011 in EB Listening by EB Team

Elektro Guzzi’s line-up might resemble that of a traditional rock band, but their music doesn’t sound like anything you would expect from a guitar/bass/drums three-piece. Rather than using machines, the three Viennese musicians Bernhard Breuer, Bernhard Hammer and Jakob Schneidewind become machines themselves, creating precise, pattern-oriented pieces that resemble techno tracks rather than rock songs. – more
