The highlight of the first REWIRE festival day was the solo performance by drummer Gerri Jäger, who had wired his kit onto a tangle of electronics. The fact that he knew so well to find his way in a setting in which he processed drums and cymbals and simultaneously operated synthesizers, FX pedals and a mini-keyboard, aroused amazement and admiration. Above all he managed to make exciting music with such virtuosity, and the help of sound engineer Sandor Caron.” Gonzo Circus, Rene van Peer

The electronic soundscapes, the water-like sounds and all sorts of reverb effects altogether grew into imposing and futuristic soundscapes that filled up the concert hall. It was pounding in the stomach and at the same time seducing us into spherical regions. Music for space sound freaks.” Stefan Uhrmacher, Saarbruecker Zeitung

Loggy and slow, thick and fuzzy noise bouncing on all sides, Jäger pulls up a trance-like, enchanting and at the same time slightly uncanny sound wall.” Arjan van Sorge, Gonzo Circus
