The minimal electronics duo Rechenzentrum formed in Berlin around producer Marc Weiser and design artist Lillevän.
Weiser, a DJ and vocalist as well, organized the Berlin club night Maria am Ostbahnhof and the festival Club Transmediale. Lillevän worked with artists including Christine Hill and Blixa Bargeld before coming together with Weiser as the visual half of Rechenzentrum. The duo remixed Tarwater, Laub, and Elektronauten then released their self-titled debut on Kitty-Yo in 2000. Director's Cut followed in 2003. Weiser has also recorded as Le Hammond Inferno for Bungalow. ~ John Bush
