"Formed in Vienna in the mid-1990's, the farmersmanual collective represents media art at its most anarchistic. While being best-known for their recordings, in recent years the group have shifted their emphasis towards extensive live performances, in which imaginative computer animation, synchronized with 'chaos-particle-accelerating' music, and the overall ambience of uncontrollable technology form a seamless whole." (anton nikkilä, http://www.avantofestival.com)
"there were the cacophonous bleeps and burps from Austrian group farmersmanual's "ship of fools" sailing the canals." (TIME mag., 07/2001)
with the aid of electronic computers, the composer becomes a sort of pilot:
pressing buttons, introducing coordinates, and supervising the controls of
a cosmic vessel sailing in the space of sound, across sonic constellations
and galaxies that could formerly be glimpsed only in a distant dream.
(iannis xenakis 1971)
