Since 1993 Andi Toma and Jan St. Werner work as Mouse on Mars. Sailing on the wild and deep waters of contemporary electronic music, they have released 15 albums, played countless shows all around the world, collaborated with the likes of Mark E. Smith, Stereolab, Eric D. Clark, or with André de Ridder and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, while Toma also worked with the late Moondog or Werner with Markus Popp/Oval. Among many others.

Mouse on Mars’ »Lichter« now is release number 10 on Infinite Greyscale, the imprint of Paul McDevitt and Cornelius Quabeck: a 10inch of coloured vinyl with a screen-printed b-side. Each handmade and handpacked in a numbered edition of 300 copies including an insert, a photograph, and a download code.

»Lichter« a cross–rhythmic piece, was conceived with the help of robotic joints courtesy of Sonic Robots beating out the rhythm on metal gear. To celebrate the record release Mouse on Mars will re-enact the recording session in a live performance.

The performance will take place upstairs in the project space of gallery Sprüth Magers, Berlin, works on display are by Louisa Clement, Anna Vogel, and Moritz Wegwerth.

Furthermore, Paul McDevitt & Jamie Lemoine created a video for »Lichter« which will be screened at Image Movement.
