Signal Zirkus is a platform in Vienna for musicians using at least one electronic musical instrument as the main sound source on stage. This can be a Synthesizer, a drum machine, a PureData patch or an iPad. The goal is to get people out of their natural habitats and, obviously their comfort zone and to give musicians a live stage in front of an audience.
At the last Signal Zirkus 021, we welcomed 4 different artists, each one with a different music style. In order to give the audience an added value, I briefly talk to the artists about their music influences or their live setup before the concerts.
Miles Matrix is an electronic musician based in Vienna who has jumped into the cold water this evening. He describes himself as a classic bedroom producer and mainly produces Synthwave/Synthpop inspired music by the 80s.
Neon Drama is an electronic musician from Vienna which is also known as DJ Darksider. He describes his music as Synthwave which is heavily inspired by Jean Michel Jarre, Acid tracks & more.
Crystal Schröder is an electronic musician from Vienna who creates a wide range of different music styles including techno, experimental, noise & more. For the Signal Zirkus 021, Christian revisited the best-known Autechre MIDI files with the help of his Elektron Machine Drum and a self-designed PureData patch.
Mario 64 is an electronic musician from Vienna who performed also at Signal Zirkus 021. His music is strongly influenced by chiptune sounds but also by classic Acid and Techno compositions. An important part of his setup is the Commodore 64 that has shaped him as much as he does music today.
