Using Mouse on Mars' songs, albums and concerts as inspiration, 37 artists, musicians, designers and academics have created commentaries, paintings, drawings and collages for this book. The results gathered here document the visual, artistic and theoretical contexts of modern electronic music as well as a range of personal interpretations of what itâ€™s like to experience it.
The book contains essays by author and journalist Dietmar Dath as well as Professor Siegfried Zielinski of the Academy of Media Arts in Cologne in addition to an interview of linguist and cyberneticist Oswald Wiener by Jan St. Werner. As an added bonus, the book includes an audio CD featuring an
exclusive Mouse on Mars track.
The concept for an accompanying exhibition was born out of the book project. It will be held at the German museum Kunsthalle Duesseldorf from April 4 through June 27, 2004. A press conference will take place on April 2 at 11 AM with the official opening on April 3 at 8 PM. For more information on this exhibition, please see
