FvRTvR is a two-body locus for demolecularized disco realized through meat shredding, science fiction improvisation. There are no beats here, however, just a relentless pyroclastic flow of robot voices gurgling indecipherable quips of the “baby, that volcano looks so good on you” variety.

FvRTvR is Guido Henneböhl from Germany and Fritz Welch, formerly of the United States, currently residing in the United Kingdom.

Guido plays an electronic instrument of his own design. This devise appears to be trapped in the ancient mysteries of circuit bending but it is actually a dynamic oxygen filtration system. There are no longer actual animal bones contained in the main structure of the device but DNA is still detectable in its circuits.

Fritz manipulates vibrating surfaces such as drums and cymbals using sticks and objects. He has also devised a method for offsetting syllabic utterances with percussive concussion.

FvRTvR music is a keying of voice and instrument. It is an amalgam of planetary shifting and earthbound sentient attachment. It is composed in relation to a belief system which holds that there is a relationship between sonic phenomena and events in the human world.



Gobi Wow was recorded (or infected?) in Berlin on Halloween, halfway between a disused beer warehouse and a giant sagging inflatable rainbow. Sounds were tossed back and forth between these two sites utilizing a post afro-futuristic drum machine propulsion system. This method of composition is informed by asteroid dust arrangements and transducer vibration analysis.

Engineered by Brendan Dougherty and mixed and mastered by Guido Henneböhl. It is the follow up to Demon Cycle 1-9 (Niente Records, 2010). Cover artwork is by Rachel Lowther. Two sides, 39 minutes in total playing at 45rpm for extra science fiction reproduction
