den ganzen abend: alle cocktails um 4,-MIR
There must be at least a dozen Bands named "Mir" out there, but probably none of them is farther away from the original meaning of the word (mir= russ. peace, tranquillity) than this one. The relation, if any, could be found in the similarity of their music with the sound of a deorbiting soviet spacestation.
The threesome with the distinguished taste was already well acquainted with experimental forms of bruitage before forming this entity. Daniel Buess (dr/electronics) is percussionist and founder member of Ensemble Phoenix, a renowned ensemble for contemporary music, and has also been drumming in a latter version of legendary noise pioneers 16-17 (EP Mechanophobia). Papiro (g/bg) and Michael Zaugg (organ/synthesizer) forged their own bad reputation as some of the more radical drone musicians around.
After only three months their debut EP "Ex Modules" was released on A Tree in a Field Records, followed by a first tour in 2006, a second in 2007, and new recordings which are currently in the big hands of the mighty Alex Buess (not Daniel's brother). We'll keep you posted.
