The Tapeworm:

"Born in 1977, Thomas Mahmoud is a Berlin based cross-disciplinary artist – musician, sound designer, performer, author and radioplay producer.

Since stepping down as the singer with Cologne based band Von Spar (L'age d'or, Tomlab), he has pursued his interests in deconstructing sounds, using analogue and digital tools to work with textures and field recordings. His installation and sound design work is renowned, not least his 48-hour opera with the Solistenensemble Kaleidoskop or his work with choreographer Kat Válastur at the Onassis Cultural Center in Athens.

Many musicians erase mistakes – static produced by tangled wires between the instrument and the amplifier painstakingly filtered-out, the random recording mistakes deleted and corrected, until everything is pleasantly plain. Others work with the waste of these procedures, with the dispensable, the sonic He listens closely and grabs the hiss and the hum, not the tone, of a thick bass string. He samples the breathing, not the voice, of his favorite singers.

A collaborator by instinct, Mahmoud has worked with the likes of Can Khan Oral, Michael Wertmüller, Mouse on Mars, Birds Of Death, Jammin'Unit, Dr Walker, Marcus Schmickler and many more. in collaboration with visual artist Stefan Fähler.
