In Transmediale 01:10:51


This is a live improvisation of the drone & noise duo ANGEL (Ilpo Väisänen / Dirk Dresselhaus) together with the (later) Multi-award-winning Icelandic cellist Hildur Guðnadóttir (Oscar, Grammy etc. for the original scores of Joker, Chernobyl etc.), which was performed in 2005 at CTM in Berlin a couple of months before they recorded their groundbreaking collaboration album KALMUKIA (Editions Mego 2007).

Eric Mattson (ORAL) wrote in 2006:

Angel is the collaborative project of Dirk Dresselhaus (commonly known as Schneider TM) and Ilpo Väisänen (1/2 of Pan sonic). In Transmediale Angel, supported on cello by Hildur Guðnadóttir, get in sync for a single unbroken journey into Drone Noise. This CD, recorded live at the Club Transmediale, Berlin in February 2005, is an intriguing introspection of the minds of some of the most interesting noise activists these days.

Ilpo Väisänen is one half of the Finnish duo Pan sonic. He is also recording under the moniker Piiri. An infernal composer, his compositions are significant contributions to the research of experimental sounds. He has played with many artists aside from Mika Vainio: Alan Vega, Bruce Gilbert, CM Von Hausswolff, Erkki Kurenniemi and John Duncan.

Dirk Dresselhaus. After the Hip Young Things which ended in 1997, Dirk, aka Schneider, has been an active member of the bands Locust Fudge, Paincake, and over all Schneider TM, his most elegant electro-acoustic project. He also founded the intrigating duo Mr. Schmuck’s Farm, an instrumental electro-acoustic freeform project together with cellist Hildur Guðnadóttir from Iceland, who sometimes joins the drone-outfit of Angel.

Hildur Guðnadóttir. Icelandic "angel" and cello player, she collaborated with most of the well-known outfits coming out of this isolated country. She is part of the Kitchen Motors collective along with internationally renowned composer Johann Johannsson. In 2004, after a few gigs with Angel and an album with Schneider, she played live for the first time with Pan sonic and collaborated on the duo's last album.
