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.

Malte Steiner is a German, Berlin-based media artist, electronic musician and composer. Steiner started creating electronic music and visual art around 1983, developing his own vision of the interdisciplinary Gesamtkunstwerk. Steiner's musical projects are primarily the experimental electro-acoustic Elektronengehirn, the industrial outfit Notstandskomitee, Akustikkoppler (with Matthias Schuster), Das Kombinat, Embedded Artist (with Wolfgang Spahn) and additionally TMS and codepage (with Tina MK Madsen).

Auto-dada, Cities and Memory Dada anniversary

TMS created the sound piece auto-dada for the Cities and Memory Dada anniversary, released on February 5. 2016. The piece applied Dada techniques on a field recording created in Seydisfjordur, Iceland in 2015:

"The remade piece auto-dada is created as an automated system that randomly applies cut up technique and montage to the original field recording. The piece is based on a randomness principle and thus avoids the control of its author, but succumbs to a purely automated process of chance. The system is created in Pure Data, which executes the applied methods on the original sound file."
