The German vocal artist Mik Quantius can, after being continuously abducted by aliens, only produce sounds from outer space. Originally, Quantius was involved in the metal scene of Köln, but in recent years he joined several avant-garde projects. He is a member of the legendary German Krautrockband EMBRYO, and he took part in “Way of the Cross”, an improvisational project of Dave Nuss of the NO NECK BLUES BAND, with musicians such as Kuupuu, The Skaters, Stellar Om Source, and Kemialliset Yvsatat. Quantius has an enormous vocal range and his diction is occasionally comparable to CAPTAIN BEEFHEART, but a little weirder. Reoccurring are the absurd sounds that fly out of his throat, often touching the threshold of pain. He is a scat maestro, who uses his entire body as an instrument rather than just singing. The thrilling sounds you will hear during performances of Mik Quantius will remain in your memory for a long time.
