Biography

MINIT is the duo of Jasmine Guffond and Torben Tilly. Over a period of almost 10 years Minit have been making records, exhibiting sound installations and performing live, developing works of varied scope based on the use of processed acoustic, electronic, and found sound sources. Their releases to date convey a unique meeting of improvised abstract electronics and stripped back minimalist design, yet reveal in almost every case a penchant for the unexpected, either as a melodic twist into song or as a sudden implosion into chaotic spectral noise.

The music of Minit transforms incrementally over time in subtle and hallucinatory ways. From fragile harmonic and melodic intonations to towering, ecstatic drones bordering at times on rock music forms.Their release ‘Now Right Here’ on Germany’s Staubgold label was a masterpiece collection of spectral drone music, capturing a balance between noise and harmony, excitation and calmness, distance and intimacy - drawing you into a hypnotic, psychedelic sound-world that is like no other.

Recent concerts have seen Minit using guitars, drums and vocals to conjure actual songs (both originals and cover versions) from within densely textured layers of shimmering electronics.

Minit was formed in 1997 in Sydney, Australia. Both Jasmine Guffond and Torben Tilly currrently reside in Berlin, Germany.
