About

Menschenstoff is a Swiss ensemble inspired by a wide range of music
styles for which the influential cultural theorist Mark Fisher coined the
term „hauntology“ – music which appears like coming through the thick
fog of the past: Elements of classical Avantgarde, analog and digital sound
experiments, glitch, alienation effects and AI, soundscapes and electro-
acoustic music, Ambient to Vaporwave are woven into eerie and
atmospheric slowcore sound collages. Menschenstoff is a collaborative
project based on improvisational explorations but also questions traditional
composer-performer relationships as in the recent collaboration with the
British composer Oliver Thurley called „Interloper“.
