0101 set the anti-western stage by fusing guitar loops and synthetic beats with field recordings.
Stefan Carl and Daniel von Rüdiger take you on a hypnotic voyage into an intriguing world of audio-visual loops. When the trip ends, you find yourself at a beginning, without knowing how you got there.
is a guitar player, human, social worker, citizen, vegan and much more.
As a guitarist – autodidact; as musician – illiterate. Socialized by punkrock and hardcore, Carl overcomes the limits of convention in spite of musical borders and defines his guitar style far away from any genre.
Carl’s interest lies in dripping reverb, dark echos and crystal clear tones contrasted with fuzzy sounds. He uses midi-controlled and synched stereo loops to let his minimal riffs appear as a monumental wall of sound.
is a traveler, filmmaker, lecturer, artistic researcher and an optimist with a mullet.
He received his doctorate on rhythm as a link between audio and video. He transfers his rhythm research to his audio-visual artistic work.
As a drummer out of practice he let his sequenzer fed by field recordings and electronic kits do the job. He uses sampled voices in addition to his own to bring concrete moments into the hypnotic rhythms.
BREAKDOWN THEME radio edit
On the 19th of March 2021 we will release our single ‘BREAKDOWN THEME radio edit’.
For the German DVD release of the film 972 BREAKDOWNS we thought of a new composition of the films theme song. It will be released with a music video to ride along.
For the second record (released 21st August 2020) 0101 works with reflective sounds and mixes of genres to interpret the images, emotions and breakdowns of the film. While von Rüdiger’s drums utilize original repairing sounds, Carl’s oscillating guitar feedbacks are modulated to scream out like worn down Urals.
For the original soundtrack of “972 BREAKDOWNS”, 0101 have collaborated with musicians from various musical backgrounds to expand their vocal and instrumental repertoire. The violin by Malwina Sosnowski stir up two very important ingredients in this breakdown theater soup: irony and tragedy.
All songs were produced and recorded by 0101. In the process of composing von Rüdiger can go back and forth between editing sound and image to experiment with their fusion. To fit the diversity of the songs, they were mixed by Reinhard Gross (Hicktown Records) and Willy Löster. The mastering was done by Alex Kloss. Like the film itself, the record can be understood as a complete work, influenced by many senses and welded together through many ears and voices.
The record is available as 180g marbled vinyl in a gatefold cover, as CD in a digipack and on all streaming and download platforms.
0101 (self titled)
The self-titled debut record (released 31th August 2018) is the musical output of the Audiovisual Live Performance 1Hz.
Meeting post-rock tradition, the two songs of the record have together a length of 33 minutes.
By involving field-recordings the pieces reflect the work of the inhabitants in the village of Kambot, at the shore of the Sepik River in Papua New Guinea. KANU documents the manufacture and transport of a dugout canoe and SAGO the harvesting and processing of the staple food Sago.
Vocals are used very sparely. In KANU a field-recording intermezzo lets the people of Kambot raise their voices. SAGO works with documentary voices and the looped line: ›einfach und schwer vs komplex und leicht‹ (›simple and hard vs complex and easy‹). This text refers to the different living environment of a self-sustaining and a post-industrial society. Daniel von Rüdiger recorded the field recordings and video footage, in the course of a social-documentary expedition.
The recording was done in a live session. Fundamental for the live sound is the spatial acoustic of a huge factory building. This location was chosen, to archive a rough, live room sound. The room was miked, with close-up mikes used only as supplements. The mix was mastered on tape with a vintage Studer A80 ribbon machine.
Distinctive for the guitar sound are two old transistor amplifiers from the late 70s, as well as reverb and delay pedals. Carl bets on the combination of digital and analogue modules. The bass lines are played also with the guitar and pitched down by an octave. This signal is sent to a bass amp, which completes the stereo guitar amp setup.
Daniel von Rüdiger sets up his sample-drums with sequence software, using his field recordings to create a distinctive vibe. The result is an amalgam of sterile industrial sounds and agile noises. The spatial acoustic keeps both together and gives the digital percussion instruments its analogue touch.
For recording, editing, mixing and mastering 0101 work closely with Reinhard Gross, head of the studio and label Hicktown Records. In cooperation with Hicktown the record will have a digital release, which is distributed by Cargo Records.
The 100-piece limited-edition vinyl with individual printed artwork is sold out.

KANU BELONG KERAM
Score for the documentary „Kanu belong Keram“
Film by Daniel von Rüdiger
Kanu belong Keram is documenting the building of a canoe in the remote village Kambot in Papua New Guinea. The production of a canoe is an example of the importance and greatness of community work in self sustaining societies. Just the combination of strength by many people can achieve something so heavy. The synchronization as a group and practical know-how is compensating the lack of technical equipment. The film transports the joy which is triggered through community work when archiving something as a group.
The short-documentary was produced by Elizabeth Cox and co-produced by the Museum of Culture, Basel. It is exhibited in their permanent exhibition GROSS. It was screened and awarded at film festivals and aired international on TV.
0101 was honoured with the Award of Recognition for Best Score at the International Independent Documentary Awards 2016; in Hollywood, USA.

The audiovisual live performance 1Hz brings loop based music and cinematic visuals together.
It is part of Daniel von Rüdigers PhD at the University of Art and Design, Linz. In his practice based artistic research, he compares visual and auditory rhythm. Asynchronism of moving images and music stands at the core of this investigation.
The visuals are understood as an independent rhythmical instrument. The footage which is therefore used, was recorded in the course of a social-documentary by Daniel von Rüdiger in Papua New Guinea. The use of the documentary footage, in the context of an audio-visual live performance, provokes questions concerning the ‘Critical Whiteness’ debate.
Standardisation of time is essential for a process of production. In a society, that considers time as money, this process is constantly professionalised. A highly advanced state of synchronisation in the music collides with natural body movement in the visuals and the original sound track. Two living environments are opposed: “simple and hard vs. complex and easy”.
The performances consist of two pieces. Both document residents of the village Kambot following their daily work. KANU deals with the building and transport of a dugout and SAGO shows the harvesting and processing of the staple food sago.
1Hz is presented as a rear projection on transparent foil. On that way the artists appear as shadows on the screen and merge with the protagonists of the documentary. The title 1Hz refers to its tempo 60 bpm. The performance is arranged in loops lasting four bars equal to 16 seconds. The project emphasizes its process and not a final result. Through inclusion of constant variation the differentiation of the work is ensured. The first version (1Hz | 001) was released in the course of an Artist in Residence at the Kasseler Dokfest in 2015.
