Born in München in 1954, living in Switzerland since 1966, percussionist Günter Müller has been playing a unique drum set with a mobile pick-up and microphone system of his own invention since 1981. The system allows hand-generated sounds on drums and percussion to be modulated electronically. Since 1998 minidiscs, later an ipod are included in his electronic set. He has played and recorded with a large number of fine musicians, from JIM O'ROURKE to CHRISTIAN MARCLAY, from BUTCH MORRIS to OTOMO YOSHIHIDE.
Müller was a founding member of the trio NACHTLUFT, with Andres Bosshard and Jacques Widmer, who have been creating sound-installations and sound-architecture, and of the electronic quartet POIRE_Z with Erik M and Voice Crack.
