…is a fusion of two people from different artistic fields that started 28.02.2015. Christoph Schulz known for his unique interpretations of the jaw's harp and Cimi Czimek a visual artist with a passion for performative installations joined together to create a crossover from various jaw's harps, various wind instruments (from children's toys to the clarinet) poem-chants and hair-dryers. Mr. Herbert, the third band member, is the “mechanical repetitor”, he loops the sound worlds and generates recurring basic elements on which the duo builts its show.
Their songs deal with the importance of uselessness, French gondoliers on the domestic duck pond, spinning candyfloss and the sound of hairdryers.
The result is a quirky promenade in pairs which leaves conventions behind. They indulge in "Experimentaldilettantismus" and use different genres in a joyful way. Mr. Schulz and Madame Cimi represent the easiness of being without unnecessary perfection with their natural-fictional characters.
