Noise improvisation trio dQtç like to rush headlong into chaotic electronic rhythms and accidents to extract sound events and turn them, once stubbornly repeated, into patterns, sometimes through long psychedelic progressions, in order to finally reveal a frame. Essentially built on an approach to improvisation meant to be versatile and nervous, dQtç multiply the opportunities to experiment with new modes, mostly asymmetric and ramshackle to the limit of explosion, in search of an intensity of speech that can only be found through an urgence of gesture.

08/15 - “nullachtfünfzehn” is an idiom in colloquial German being used as an adjective to denote something "standardized", generic, common, or even of very low quality, inspired of the MG08/15, a lightened and more convenient version of the MG08, a machine gun widely used by the German army during the first half of the 20th century. Beyond the “machine gun” imagery reflecting the band’s harsh and intense sound and franc tireur attitude, “nullachtfünfzehn” is applied to improvised music to illustrate how noises, generally heard as common or even worthless, can turn out to be deadly weapons, depending on the way they are handled on the improvisation battlefield.
