NERKKIRN has delivered a brand new Ep called “Antifuse”. The 4 track output can be defined as a trip between the dark side of the moon and the wild side of a synthesizer abandoned in the middle of a forest.
“NERKKIRN is what happens when you pair two very different electronic musicians with a shared passion for warping sonic technology – and set them loose.” Yet, speaking of paths, it has always been the new and experimental approaches that kept Nerk aka Benjamin Weiss and Peter Kirn moving and finally formed their intersection.
Having founded the legendary Berlin rave act Tok Tok, Benjamin Weiss has been an innovative artist within the techno scene for many years now, including releases on Kompakt, Klang, and V-Records, often in collaboration with Dirk Leyers, as well as the co-creation of a new iPad step sequencer.
As a classically trained experimental musician the Kentucky-born Peter Kirn has been working in a wide range of fields such as modern dance, ambient audiovisual shows, as well as piano and underground experimental techno. Yet he might be best known as co-creator of the MeeBlip synthesizer and as the editor of CDM (createdigitalmusic.com). Again a common space he shares with Nerk, founding editor of De:bug.
