“This is a ‘geniale dilettante’[1]; a punk and a No Waver and an early adopter of computer pop; a female has genially hosted Berlin’s new music scene for 30 years.” - UK magazine The Wire (by Philip Sherburne, 2008)

Gudrun Gut’s story spans many years, scenes, and sounds, from the “ingenious dilettantes” subculture of early 1980’s Berlin as part ofMania D., Einstürzende Neubauten,andMalaria!to her twilit industrial pop trioMatadorinto an expansive solo catalog of later work scoring films, videos, and radio plays. Her talents extend beyond musician, however, to include founding record labels (the influential imprintsMoabit MusikandMonika Enterprise), club nights (progressive electronic pop collectiveOceanclub), and experimental feminist collaborations (Monika Werkstatt).

Gudrun Gut's preferred style is a kind of minimal techno with a warm sound and a dark timbre, and it radiates with beautiful melancholy like a strong perfume - an invitation to let oneself fall backwards into her warm pulse.Apart from her eclectic DJ appearances in Clubs and at Festivals, Gudrun Gut finally released her debut solo album I Put A Record On in April 2007. Since then she is doing live performances with her laptop and microphone accompanied by her video clips. Her latest solo collection distills a lifetime of persuasions and obsessions into a compelling 14 tracks statement: Moment, including a cover of David Bowie's 1979 track "Boys Keep Swinging".

Gudrun Gut also works extensively in the technical sector of the recording industry, as a producer. Recent projects have included collaborations withAntye Greie(AGF)andHans-Joachim IrmleroffaUSt, participating on the advisory committee forMusicboard Berlin, and performing atThe Royal Albert HallwithÂmeas part of anInnervisionslabel night.

[1] The term ‘Geniale Dilettanten’ (translated here as ‘ingenious amateurs’) stems from a music event called “Die große Untergangsshow (The great Downfallshow) – Festival Genialer Dilletanten” that took place on 1981 in Berlin, and where, amongst many others, such influential and notorious bands as Einstürzende Neubauten, Die Tödliche Doris, or Malaria! performed and were first exposed to a larger audience. Playing within various styles, what combined them all was their radical edge, their vast experimentation with noise and form, and their contempt for and resistance against the growing professionalism that was overtaking popular music-production, shackled by conceptions of “progress” manifested in the ever-growing refinement of production techniques and structures that attempt to set themselves up as the ‘norm’. The term “Geniale Diletanten” was later on appropriated to refer to the bands/artists associated with this festival.
