Gert-Jan Prins: Electronics AM/FM-Modulations, TV. "With Risk Prins creates a brutal world where electrical breaking points become blasting moments of sharpened sensual attention. Gert-Jan Prins started out as a rock drummer, continued as an improviser, but restarted soldering self-made electronic machines in the mid-90s. His unique self-developed electronic system uses radio- and transmitter technology, and creates strong noises with great physical energy. During the last four years Gert-Jan Prins, living in Amsterdam, established himself as one of the central electronic performers in improvised music. Besides his solo-project, current collaborations include E-RAX (with Lehn, Van Bergen, Dolleman),The Flirts (with Cor Fuhler), MIMEO, and the Vacuum Boys, he played with Lee Ranaldo, Pita, Fennesz, Anne la Berge, Domenico Sciajno, Luc Houtkamp and Misha Mengelberg. What can one write on his music? What feeling is it made with? 'I try to squeeze the self created feedback sound till its on the edge of exploding, but it's also the fascination for the chaotic instinct of my machines, that they create shifting rhythmical patterns, as well as a sound of liquefied rockmusic, the media inherent found fragments of speech/music, and a seemingly acoustic world cooking in between drum-, wind- and stringsounds'."
