A night of fastidious chaos, unabridged idiosyncrasy and carefree polyglottism that will be writ into lore as sure as Tom Rakewell is Adonis.
Rudi Fischerlehner plays drums in various different musical projects that fall between improvised and experimental music, jazz and post-rock. He also composes and produces music for bands, film and performances.
Born in 1977 in Austria he was introduced to the drums in his childhood and started playing in bands as a teenager around Linz. Following a brief period studying classical percussion he moved to Vienna, travelled to Africa and China, spent a few month in New York and now resides in Berlin.
“Fischerlehner leaves no issue unattended as far as drumming is concerned, either underlining what his comrades do with conscious respectfulness or exploding into destructive bubbles of counter-rhythms and thump-and-bang punkiness when the going gets tough.”

Ted Milton is an English poet and musician, best known for leading Blurt, an experimental art rock group.
In Eric Clapton’s autobiography he describes hanging out with Ted at Milton’s girlfriend Clarissa’s apartment often in the summer of 1965. “Ted was the most extraordinary man. A poet and a visionary … he was the first person I ever saw physically interpreting music … to enact it with his entire being, dancing and employing facial expressions to interpret what he was hearing. Watching him, I understood for the first time how you could really live music, how you could listen to it and completely make it come alive, so that it was part of your life. It was a real awakening.”
