Deutsch Nepal is the solo project of Swedish electronic musician Lina Baby Doll (real name Peter Andersson, co-founder with Roger Karmanik of the label Cold Meat Industry) that shuns the ambient fad of the 1990's and remains faithful to 1980's industrial music.

Former member of Swedish industrial cult band Njurmännen, Lina Baby Doll set up his own musical project in 1991. Inspired by the classic Amon Düül II song of the same name, Deutsch Nepal started with a deep and fascinating industrial ambient sound, enriched by hypnotic rhythms, voice samples and repetitive structures.

Deutsch Nepal belongs to the generation of "sound constructivists" of the early 1990s and ranks with In Slaughter Natives and Raison D'Etre among its most distinguished perpetrators.


Dead Letters Spell Out Dead Words is the specter that haunts Sweden's Thomas Ekelund. A graphic designer, musician, and visual artist, Ekelund brings to his body of work a dark vision of brooding isolation tempered by the hope that salvation from the garbled ether of digital and... psychological pollution is possible.

After being diagnosed with a near crippling mental disease, Ekelund sought sanctuary in sound but recoiled from what he created. Ekelund stares into the shadow sounds that invade our lives and grind the spaces between us and sees his fractured reflection staring back. With his splintered mind as a guide, Ekelund plumbs the depths of noisy maelstroms and explores the currents of isolation and madness, conjuring emotive landscapes that draw blood as often as they heal.

Yet, the psychic violence of Ekelund's compositions cannot erase the sympathetic response they evoke. Through sonic alchemy, Ekelund transmutes buzzing drones, ominous atmospheres and dirge-like melodies into spaces where we can seek solace. For it is through these songs that we, like Ekelund, can find joy through pain, calm through anger, comfort through isolation, and peace through madness.


DEER HAPPY PLACE are Romanie Marty (voice) and David Heizmann (Guitar).

Formed exlusively for this event the duo takes songs once written by tormented souls and wraps them into jazzy sadness.

THISQUIETARMY is the experimental guitar-based project of Eric Quach from Montreal, Canada – active since 2005.

The results can be described as dark, melodic, expansive & engaging dreamscapes. His live performances are mostly presented as a real-time score to hypnotic ethereal visuals, which he creates himself for each performance..

MARTIN FUHS (a.k.a. SECONDS IN FORMALDEHYDE) is a german composer and soundartist who is working in the fields of modern classical music / contemporary electronic music. Born in 1987 he started to take music theory by the age of 10. Following musical lessons in classical guitar playing by the age of 12. Since then he progressed with his musical abilities by learning to play the piano and starting to write his first arrangements. Fuhs concentrates on classical influenced music that he mixes with modern elements of electronic music such as digital synthesis and sound processing. His instrument of choice is the piano allthough he also uses guitar sounds and field recordings.

Fuhs is influenced by artists like ryuichi sakamoto, harold budd and keith jarrett but at the same time also by composers like cliff martinez and thomas newman.

CLEM LEEK is a musician & composer from the UK South East. He has just completed his MA in Music Composition and is now releasing his first E.P, 'Through the Annular' on Schedios Records. Clem draws his influence from a number of sources, from the minimalist composers Steve Reich & Philip Glass and also such musicians as Keith Kennif, Max Richter, Matt Hales and many more, creating a beautiful mix of piano melodies and subtle instrumentation, all set to the crackle of a 78rpm record.

HERPES Ö DELUXE, formed 1995, is a four piece group from Bern/Switzerland working in a musical field between atmospheric noise, electronica bruitiste, sombre soundscapes or harsh drones. Their instruments are partly analogue electronic gear, partly self-built or deconstructed tools like tape loops or turntables that are (mis-)used as rhythm machines. Live performances - electronic and acoustic soundscapes, ranging from ambient sounds and playful collages to devastating, rhythmic noise attacks - always refer to the moment. According to this, an exclusive set is elaborated for every event, no one of which is ever performed again in the same form, because the spontaneous aspect would be lost and a reproduction would be in opposition to the interactive play of the four musicians, which depends strongly on the situation of a given event, without being improvised. Shows are often complemented with performance elements or other actions. Besides concerts in the traditional sense, Herpes Ö DeLuxe have been involved in numerous other activities; they made the live music for the theater 'Habgier', and regularly produce the soundtracks for the 'pyrotechnical interventions' of the artist Pavel Schmidt (Solothurn/Munich). Those events usually take place in museums or art spaces..... Sporadically they are also teaming up with singer Beat-Man (frontman of the well known Garage Rock/Punk-Band The Monsters). Under the name ..Reverend Beat-Man & The Church Of Herpes.. they are producing a more song-orientated brand of music, closer to the common 'pop'-scheme but with a noisy edge. They call this genre Electronic Gospel Trash.

THE LODGE presents:

EMPUSAE (be) + FJERNLYS (ger) + CIRCULAR (ger)
+ DJ Das Gummi

05/02/2011 @ Bazillus Club, Zurich

Doors 20:00 // Concerts 21:00
Space and seating are limited. Book your ticket online.

EMPUSAE is a project created by Nicolas Van Meirhaeghe aka Sal-Ocin. Empusae exercises a surreal science of structure that throbs and pulsates in an almost obsessive manner. The music is almost suggestive of a mechanical assembly line in its clock work clunks and clangs. It builds into a tense, yet haunting soundscape and rivets itself into the memory and refuses to be forgotten. It is serious music who's architecture has formed for itself a solid foundation, rather than sounding as if its trying to tear itself apart! When listening to Empusae's music, you're lost in dark melancholy, tribal electronic athmospheres and scarefull ambient rituals. It's music is not easy to categorise, some say ambient, industrial, electro and other... but Sal-Ocin describes his music as a sountrack for the listeners personal fantasies.

Being a member of various other project such as This Morn' Omina, Tzolk'in, Project Arctic and a live member of Ah Cama-Sotz, In Slaughter Natives, IC434, Sal-Ocin isn't afraid of working together with other artists.

FJERNLYS create warm and athmospheric ambient songs with hypnotic percussion, vibraphone and violin sounds and melodies on top of electronic soundscapes which adds up to wonderfully organic pieces of music. The poetic athmosphere of the meditatively spoken voice of CKS melts into the clear synth sounds and creates extraordinally melancholic songs through deep organic rhythms which are not only electronically performed in a live context but are also amended with guitar, melodica and violin to a sound cosmos which takes the listener into the "Inner Cinema".

CIRCULAR - to follow the unknown. With the Project CIRCULAR in 2006 Johannes Riedel released an outstanding debut at Leipzigs LOKI label that was followed by a split live album with INADE in 2007. The music of CIRCULAR leads into the fields of ruminant and hypnotic ambient music. Multilayered sounds from analogue synthesizer's and modules, mesmerizing pulses, melodic ambience, guitars and electronic bass paint the extraordinary aural world of CIRCULARs live concerts. Johannes Riedels classical music education guarantees fine arrangements with an superb aura of transcendence that is hard to subduct.
