An Austrian group of irregular line-up, started in 1983 by Wolfgang DORNINGER (b. 1960), a multi-media artist also known for his involvement in groups JOSEF K. NOYCE and WIPEOUT, and Thomas RESCH (b. 1960). In 1987 Peter ANDROSCH (b. 1964) joined as an official member. Between 1984 and 1988 the personnel also included Leo SCHATZL (b. 1958), a video artist and audio-video installation maker. Their music was noted for its effective combination of characteristics from the industrial avant-garde of rock music and expressive melodic lines, and the live appearances were enhanced with screenings of film material inducing reflections on the dark sides of the human psyche and the possibilities in penetrating it. The instrumentation included traditional acoustic instruments, e.g. guitars, drums, and saxophone, although unconventionally used, as well as an analogue synthesizer, drum machine, and prepared tapes. With time the group’s work became incre- asingly eclectic and arranged in terms of both form and sound, leaning towards avant-garde rock music, or even ambient music. Although never officially terminated, the project radically limited its activities in the late 1990s. In addition to his musical career in a variety of fields, including soundtracks for film, theatre, and multi-media art, DORNINGER has also produced his own radio programmes, has co-organised electronic music festivals since 1996, e.g. ”ARS ELECTRONICA”, and last but not least, has run a record label, from 1984 to 2002 known as DIE IND, then 7INCH12, and in 1997 renamed BASE RECORDS.
