Jan St. Werner and Andi Toma of Mouse On Mars have spent the past two decades creating some of the most inventive and beguiling electronic compositions to bridge the worlds of electronic and rock music. Drafting influences as far and wide as Kraftwerk, Brian Eno, and Lee “Scratch” Perry, the duo’s early albums revealed a multi-textured fusion of krautrock sensibilities and cool post-techno refinement that was hailed by critics as the future of adventurous home listening. Mouse On Mars’ panoramic feast for the ears earned vocal fans in influential groups such as Stereolab and Tortoise, who began to use similar elements to deconstruct British and American rock. But over the course of ten albums, Mouse On Mars have changed course drastically with each subsequent outing, remaining anarchically indefinable. Lately, they have taken another left turn into more rhythmic territory, and their showcase at MUTEK 2010 should serve as one of the first peaks into the duo’s latest reinvention. Reinvigorated after a long pause, the duo claims to be “writing their most exciting new stuff for years – possibly decades. Playing mostly in clubs over the recent years has got the creative juices flowing like hot lava.”
