Zeitkratzer is a collective of soloists who are called to perform the most modern avant-garde and experimental music. It was founded in 1999 and is led by Reinhold Friedl. The band’s absolute independence whose premise is self-funding allows for total openness and uncompromisingness in terms of the choice of repertoire and partners. Among the latter were Karlheinz Stockhausen, Lou Reed, Keiji Haino, La Monte Young or Merzbow. Music of Zeitkratzer breaks all the genre rules and goes beyond the borders of every musical aesthetics.

Specially for the concert in Wrocław, Zeitkratzer will prepare a concert dedicated to the memory of Louis Reed. His guitar work Metal Machine Music has been adopted by the band to the instrumental squad. The joint album with Reed is regarded as a milestone of contemporary music. In Wrocław Zeitkratzer will not only play two versions of the work, but also will invite on the stage the noise music legend – Keiji Haino. During the second part of the evening they will perform specially prepared for the festival arrangements of the works from SONGS programme – with a new vocalist.
