The current solo program of Paul Wirkus is an electronic live set. The set-up consists of tremolo effects, mini disc recorders, small analog synth, laptop and a mixing desk. The sound material is based on samples of string quartets and solo piano, oscillators, mixed with hissing and feedbacking noises of mic amplifiers in overdrive.
These elements converge to a contemplative area of sound, charged up by polyrhythmic figures, syncopations of asynchronous rhythmic patterns and sparse melodic tracks. Pulsating loops and tremolos merge to a whirring experimental lo fi aesthetic.
Apart from his solo program, Wirkus is also collaborating with other musicians, e.g. Barbara Morgenstern, Stefan Schneider (To Rococo Rot) , Johannes Frisch (Kammerflimmer Kollektief), Mikolaj Trzaska, Marcin Dymiter (aka Emiter). Live on festivals: SONAR, Barcelona; Musique Volantes, Paris; c/o pop, Cologne.
