Ignaz Schick [Berlin] – turntable, objects, bows, electronics
Dawid Szczesny [Berlin/Wroclaw] – software & hardware samplers
Ignaz Schick & Dawid Szczesny met for the first time in 2005 when Dawid was performing with Sofie Loizou in Berlin. Coming both from quite different backgrounds (Hip Hop/Electronica and Noise/Experimental Electro-Acoustics) they decided to collaborate on some recordings. The first session took place “live on radio” without previous rehearsals the first night of Ignaz’ three weeks residency at Radio Copernicus in Wroclaw in December 2005. The next very early morning they went into the recording studio and worked on the first tracks. In early 2006 they did a short minitour with 3 concerts in Germany and in the summer recorded more material at Dawids house in Wroclaw. In their music you can notice a certain jazzy feel, maybe coming from their shared passion for 1960s “jazz noir”.
In the meantime the duos has performed several tours and festivals. In 2011 a second live-album was released which in contrast to the debut studio album was recorded and played in one go without any after editing. Dawid Szczesny has in the meantime moved to Berlin and collaborates frequently with Schick in several projects. In the moment a third duo release is in discussion and planing.
