Acre works on forms, images and places of music and listening.
The group’s sound is made up of some recognizable music influences, and focuses on the way these influences are dealt
with, letting them “interfere”: the impro praxis of free jazz, the real time elaboration of synthetic sounds, the timbre and
sign research borrowed by academical western music.
After the debut album with Megasound records we are releasing a second album with the portuguese Creative Sources Rec.
The artistic proposal is not so common, but we love to produce what we feel like a necessary and contemporary art form.

The International Nothing
Kai Fagaschinski: clarinet & composition
Michael Thieke: clarinet & composition
The International Nothing is a Berlin-based psycho-acoustic clarinet duo formed by Michael Thieke and Kai Fagaschinski in 2000. They collectively compose multilayered sound sculptures using multiphonics, beat frequencies and difference tones as an integral part of their language. Both musicians are well known as improvisers but in this project they develop and perform exclusively their own compositions.
Every four years the duo releases an album on the Japanese Ftarri Label. In 2018 they are presenting their fourth duo album In Doubt We Trust. While each of the previous releases consisted of several shorter pieces the duo is now going epic for the first time. The new album is made of a single work of 37 plus minutes. 2 ½ years of deep sonic research in seclusion not only yielded a formal change, but also revealed new and yet unheard acoustic scenarios in slow pace and of fragile beauty.
The duo played concerts all over Europe, North America and East Asia, including Donaueschinger Musiktage (2007), Konfrontationen (Nickelsdorf 2008), Experimental Intermedia (New York 2009), Maerzmusik (Berlin 2009), Serralves em Festa (Porto 2010), Internationale Ferienkurse für Neue Musik (Darmstadt 2012), Météo Festival (Mulhouse 2012), Festival International de Musique Actuelle De Victoriaville (2015), Music Unlimited (Wels 2015), Ftarri Festival (Tokyo 2015), and Borderline Festival (Athens 2017).
Together with Christof Kurzmann and Margareth Kammerer the clarinet twins form the experimental pop band The Magic I.D..
