Jochen Arbeit was member of influential instrumental band Die Haut and part of the Berlin Geniale Dilettanten scene- with roots in punk and Dada-. Without a fixed singer Die Haut drew from a list of collaboration singers from Nick Cave to Alan Vega, Kim Gordon or Arto Lindsay. Being old friends from the 80’s- Blixa Bargeld was another of the regular collaborators of Die Haut- Jochen Arbeit joined Einsturzende Neubauten in 97, participating in their musical rebirth which culminated in the recording of records exclusively with the support of their fans.

He has also worked on collaborations in other areas of art; he has composed music for theatre and dance, he has created sound installations and has collaborated with painters in visual performances. Currently he combines his presence in Einsturzende Neubauten with solo shows and other projects such as AADK, Automat, Supercosy Klangwerkstatt and several collaborations.

Huan is the alter ego of Víctor Hurtado a multi-instrumentalist and producer and distinguished member of Barcelona’s experimental scene in which he is active with many projects. He’s also the creative mind behind psychedelic-noise band Qa’a, with whom he’s toured Europe extensively and that counts Hans Joachim Irmler, Steve Stapleton and Julian Cope among their supporters.

With his primitivistic industrial project Huan he’s toured several countries with highlighted shows such as at the Contemporaneous Art Centre of Barcelona, Sónar Chicago, Terminal in Oaklandor at the Ethnological Museum of Barcelona. With Huan he’s also worked on several collaborations such as touring the US as an ensemble with Les Aus and as a sporadic collaborator of Nurse With Wound with whom he played live as a guest member at Primavera Sound Festival in 2013. He’s also worked in the field of sound art having garnered the Franco G. Maffina special mention for “most original piece” in the 2011 edition of the Luigi Russolo Sound Art Competition.”
