combine game controllers, motion sensors, e-drums and live-electronics with field recordings and analogue synthesizers. Being greatly inspired by influences from classical music, electro-acoustic music, Electronica, Clicks&Cuts and Death Metal, CLUBbleu create their own musical cosmos based on urban soundscapes, sparkling synths, deep drones and broken blast beats, a style they simply call buʞitpantroniʞ.
Next to their activities in the field of interactive electronic chamber music, the research on different methods of sound synthesis and development of their own audio software represents a central topic of CLUBbleu ’s artistic approach.
In the past three years CLUBbleu mainly focused on their field recording -project „DARK ENERGY“, a series of city portraits, dealing with different sonic characteristics of urban environments according to architectual developments, social structures and the cultural background of a city.
CLUBbleu is Felix Leuschner and Julia Mihály. Felix is a classically trained drummer and composer with the main focus on music theatre pieces, as well as chamber music and vocal pieces in connection to live-electronics. Strong influences by visual arts and architecture mark essential components in his compositions. As part of CLUBbleu, Felix plays e-drums connected to Max /MSP, using the instrument as a giant controller for real time sound synthesis. Julia is a composer-performer. She studied classical singing and electronic composition. The crossover of different music styles, such as contemporary vocal music, old school computer game music, trashy pop music tunes and electro-acoustic music, is probably the most outstanding feature of her compositions and performances. Within CLUBbleu, Julia plays analogue synths, game controllers and toy instruments connected to Max /MSP.
