About TMS

TMS is an experimental noise project by Berlin-based artists Malte Steiner (DE) and Tina Mariane Krogh Madsen (DK). The format is improvisational sound pieces and concerts built out of Steiner and Madsen's sonic interactions, where noise-scapes and complex structures emerge from intense layering of various in- and outputs. The physical interaction with materials has an additional focus and thus to create a more performative and visual sound experience. TMS use primarily various pedals, self-built controllers and Pure Data to create their sounds. Each chosen element is very important for the whole, where the combination of these play a vital role in the compositions. The inputs can be analogue as well as digital; modulated, transformed and distorted.
