Marcus Schmahl‘s music style for the Guardner project ranges from ambient and downbeat to club-oriented music and music for television (advertising, film and background music). He presents the audience as an audiovisual live act or as a DJ throughout Europe. Many of Guardner’s titles were regularly heard in the legendary “Space Night” of the Bavarian TV station (BR). The album “Guardner – Somedays in my life” also led the German chillout charts for several weeks.
The album “Symbolism” by Guardner is also available on the label Kunststoff Schallplatten.
The cover artwork of the label Kunststoff is individually drawn by Andreas Hachulla. The digital drawings of Hachulla are created during his forays through the Berlin club and nightlife. In most clubs, whose sound architecture is a system of samples and copies, it is forbidden to take pictures. Hachulla uses his cellphone as a sketchbook and keeps his impressions of the club scene in the drawing. Fleeting things, like the flashes of light that make the architecture visible for a fraction of a second, are of equal interest to him as are the architecture itself. The mobile drawing program simulates both the characteristics of drawing tools and the style of the artist / user. As a result, Andreas Hachulla’s resulting images represent a post-digital artistic practice that is not digitally oriented, but that is not possible without digital-technological contexts.
