Before Ignaz Schick devoted to the exploration of the possibilities of turntables and vinyl records, inspired by the meeting with Don Cherry, he began his career as a jazz saxophonist. He studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich. He lives in Berlin and is a member of the so-called “Berlin Nouvelle Vague” and a recognized representative of the local experimental scene. His bold approach to the turntables and vinyl records plays a significant role in the stage of creation. Recent works of Schick are based on the manipulation of musical landscapes coming from the “cut” vinyl. Interestingly, the sounds forming the material are found by him on vinyl bought at flea markets and junk shops. During the concerts, he is accompanied by three turntables and a looper, so his performance is characterized by unusual, surreal intensity.
