Refined talents, raw performance

When you saw those two names – Achim Wollscheid and Bernhard Schreiner – side by side on a piece of paper, you probably thought "Of course, this collaboration makes so much sense!" Unless you went "Who?"

True, Wollscheid and Schreiner are not what you would call household names of the experimental music scene. Although the former gained serious "street" credit on the Industrial scene in the '80s with his moniker S.B.O.T.H.I. and his collaborations with P16.D4. Wollscheid also cofounded the influential production company/label Selektion. And in the '90s and early 2000s he published a string of brilliant albums of computer music and avant-garde electronics on Selektion and Ritornell. For the past ten years, however, he has released very little music, focusing instead on sound art installations.
