The man behind the project with the strangely playful name is the cellist and drummer Andi Otto. Springintgut has been releasing vivid, melodic Electronica with us since 2002, and also on the City Centre Offices label in Berlin. His first live shows featured a self-built drumkit with books and contact mics.
Nowadays he performs with "Fello", his own instrument which combines the cello and the computer with sensors on the bow. The "Fello" developments have been supported by STEIM in Amsterdam. He has performed "Fello" live shows internationally, with artistic residencies in Japan and India.
Springintgut works as a composer for theatre, dance and film. He has also contributed beautiful tracks to our compilations Kami Eins, Pingipung plays: the Piano and Pingipung blows: the Brass.
