During the examination of Stanley Kubrick’s movie „2001. A Space Odyssey“, the ensemble heightened an awareness of the relationship between humans and human tools and instruments.
For the ARD Hörspieltage, the annual German state broadcasting corporation’s festival for radio plays, the No Input Ensemble developed a scenical instrumental radio play in cooperation with the media artist and turntablist 2xC. The piece focuses on the role of instruments as tools in the context of their compositional process.
Together with Michael Vierling from the Karlsruhe artists' collective nil and Michele Samarotto, the No Input Ensemble performs live in concert as part of the international multi-disciplinary arts festival Exhibitronic. The event will take place in Strasbourg's Le Shadok, an exceptional location made for innovative arts and business forms.
GEOGRAFIE DEL SUONO – incontri con musicisti in transito – è un progetto prodotto dall’Ex Asilo Filangieri che mira a favorire e promuovere gli incontri all’insegna dell’improvvisazione tra musicisti di varie aree geografiche e stilistiche. Ciò avviene in un contesto – l’Asilo – che fa dello scambio, dell’interazione e del coworking tra artisti una delle sue fondanti idee guida.
Multiversal è una rete di musicisti, artisti, performer, organizzatori e spazi.
Il suo scopo è scoprire realtà indipendenti interessate al suono e all’improvvisazione (non come genere, ma come metodo), creare piattaforme e occasioni per queste realtà di incontrarsi, collaborare e creare/elaborare nuove idee e progetti.
Nell’ottobre scorso, e per la prima volta in Italia, la carovana del Multiversal è sbarcata a Napoli. A distanza di un anno, l’esperienza si ripete, intrecciandosi, grazie a Geografie del Suono, con i musicisti del No Input Ensemble.

Extraordinary music at an extraordinary location: the No Input Ensemble performs at a former prison chapel. In two performances of 30 minutes, new works for short-circuited mixing desks are presented by the five musicians.
Performance A – 8:00pm
Performance B – 10:00pm
The "Lange Nacht der Kultur Kaiserslautern" is an annual event hosted by the municipality of Kaiserslautern during which museums, concert halls and other art spaces stay open late for special concerts and exhibitions.
After the studio premiere of "Transition Linker", broadcasted live on the radio stations BR Klassik and Der Junge Kulturkanal on November 23, 2014, the No Input Ensemble will perform their first fully transcribed piece anew on stage.
"Wechselspannung", the performance originally developed for the Strasbourg art gallery Stimultania will be interpreted in the context of a stage-focused audience as a revised version.
The "Studiokonzerte" concert series, organised by the IMWI Institute for Musicology and Music Informatics at the University of Music Karlsruhe, has been recurring (bi-)annually since the first concert in 1989 / 1990. This year, we celebrate the 25th "Studiokonzerte" anniversary with four concert nights featuring student work ranging from extraordinary live performances to "classical" acoustic computer music.
Within the scope of a festival for contemporary music with more than ten world premieres, the No Input Ensemble and 2xC perform their award-winning piece "Fieber. Kommentarwerk zum Gebirgskriegsprojekt" in a new, revised version.
The Festival of Numeric Culture, organised by the artist collective l'état latent.
We will play along with Johannes Kreidler, Yvan Etienne, Florent Colautti, Frédéric Santiago Perreten, Javier Muñoz Bravo, Nikolet Burzyńska, Kalina Swiatnicka, Jean Scherrer, and many more.
On October 19, 2014, the No Input Ensemble and 2xC were awarded the Karl Sczuka Sponsorship award. The awarding ceremony was broadcast live as a radio show on SWR2. Our very own Timothy Schmele and Christian Claus (2xC) were interviewed and a recording of our prize-winning composition "Fieber. Kommentarwerk zum Gebirgskriegsprojekt" was played on air.
Performance of the "Fieber — Kommentarwerk zum Gebirgskriegsprojekt." in the context of the international MuSA Symposium — Exploring embodiment in music and sonic art.
The principal aim of MuSA 2014 was to advance interdisciplinary investigations in – as well as between – music and sonic art. This year’s theme: Exploring embodiment in music and sonic art.
MuSA 2014 devoted one day to the specific theme: Re-thinking the Musical Instrument. We are glad to have been able to perform in front of internationally acclaimed experts from the domains of musicology and music informatics.
Premiere of the performance "Rewire".
Composed in a less strict fashion, "Rewire" became a piece to go perfectly with an unusual context for serious music: a club where we as performers would be able to interact with the audience. Markus Tateoka Schroeder provided astonishing glitch art visuals and with a potent fog machine, the atmosphere at AKK was surpassingly fresh and delightful for No Input music.
The No Input Ensemble and 2xC appeared 6 times (May 13, 14, 15 and May 20, 21, 22) on the Large Studio stage at the Hochschule für Gestaltung Karlsruhe.
We performed "Fieber — Kommentarwerk zum Gebirgskriegsprojekt" for 5 short-circuited mixing desks and one turntable. "Fieber" is a commentary work on Jorge E. Lopez' "Gebirgskriegsprojekt" and incorporates the performers' impressions and reactions to the original work. It presents the examination of the mountain war topos, especially in the Alps during the first world war, in an artistic form.
LVL:99 incorporates multiple layers of both musical and technical complexity by making performers able to mutually modify their sounds. An electronic organism emerges in subtle and less subtle ways.
