Slurge is a band that premiered live at Superbooth19. The members are the ex-Ton Steine Scherben drummer Wolfgang Seidel, Carina Khorkhordina, Eric Bauer and Burkhard Beins. All four musicians are active in Berlin's thriving experimental music scene that became known as Echtzeitmusik. The vitas of Slurge's members reach back to the times of Kluster/Cluster and the Zodiac Free Arts Lab, which was founded by Beuys' student Conrad Schnitzler in West Berlin in 1968. Besides Krautrock another biographical landmark is the post-wall era when parts of Berlin's old city centre became an area of unknown property and power relations. It was a time frame for unrestricted experiments outside of commercial logics. With Slurge the musicians explore the more colorful and noisy realms of the vast spectrum covered by Echtzeitmusik.
