Das Aushängeschild im 2004 av. Tour ist zweifellos J. Frede, der eine eigene Radioshow für elektronische Musik leitet, ein Label in dem Sektor betreibt und zuletzt ein gemeinsames Album mit dem berühmten Electronica-Artist SCANNER eingespielt hat. Seine Spezialität sind verrauschte Klanglandschaften voller Intensität. David Brady inkorporiert in seine elektronischen Sounds allerlei akustische Instrumente und gefundene Klänge, die zu sich einbohrenden Loopschleifen arrangiert werden. Der Abend kann als kritischer Kommentar auf die audiovisuelle Informationsflut unserer Tage gelesen werden.

J.Frede will be presenting his "repetitions series" for this tour. This work is based on rerepetitive motion and sound. Windmills, conveyor belts, search helicopters, and streams are some examples of the footage that has been shot for the series.

The end result is a live performance with of hypnotic visuals coupled with a subtle but dynamic soundtrack that is created live.
