EOTNA | Computer Madness, Michael Weisser

Steve Pointdexter is a musician from Chicago who played a central role in house music’s history. His first ep, Work That Mutha Fucker, paved the way to Ghetto House, later incarnated by the Dancemania label. He had a long career as a DJ before this record, and founded the Chicago Bad Boys, a collective made of Armando, Roy Davis, Ron Carroll, Gene Hunt, Pharris Thomas, Robert Armani...

Michael Weisser is one of the modern new media artists and was part of the predominently electronic music label Innovative Communication founded in 1978 by the e music pioneer Klaus Schulze (ex. Tangerine Dream). 

This german record label also called IC (I see!) released some Synth Music, experimental and Krautrock masterpieces such as « Richard Wahnfried - Time Actor - 1979 » and « SOFTWARE - Island Surise - 1988 » and worked with musicians like Baffo Banfi, Robert Schroeder, DIN A Testbild and many otherpioneers that influenced the next generation of ambiant and new age musicians.
While chief producer and creative director for IC Michael Weisser also formed the duo called the SOFTWARE-Project with Peter Mergener in 1984 combining new electronic soundscapes with spacy sequences and human voices reciting high-tech-poetry. 
Later in 1987, he created a solo side project called G.E.N.E. which stands for Grooving Electronic Natural Environments and is a musically diverse electronic new age project built around a mysterious Canadian born talented composer Cléo de Mallio.
Being a part of the graphic designer creative scene that composed the main proto computer art team with a real futuristic vision and aesthetic in Europe and Japan during the 80ies and 90ies (Yoichiro Kawaguchi, Randy Roberts, Andy Kopra, Nelson Max, David Sherwin) Weisser used mathematical algorithms visual processes, and proto 3D imagery to produce many records artworks built up the first computer-graphic-edition and hologram-artwork on LPs and CDs of the label IC « I see the future! » from 1984 to 2000. 
Today he is networking analogue and digital media creating Art-Installations based on geometrical and floral abstractions of QR-codes he calls « i:codes ». The cover artwork shown in the exhibition is part of this series of visuals.
