Publisher's description: When Swiss graphic designers/painters/musicians Nik Emch (b. 1967) and Laurent Goei (b. 1964) teamed up to form the punk group Minimetal, they created a new hybrid art form combining music and performance art into "soundsculptures," which influenced a wave of young contemporary artists in Europe and the US in the 1990s. Their pieces were a veritable torrent of guitar sounds, drums, vocals and images, carrying their audience off into hypnotic states. This combination artist book / interactive sound book is equally avant-garde. Minimetal 11 Mantras is a substantial publication with over 260 color images documenting the group's performance history, chronology and lyrics from the duo's original 11 songs plus an additional 13 hours of Minimetal's music and videos, made accessible through live QR codes embedded throughout the book. Founded in Zurich in 1994 by Emch and Goei, the duo has been bringing their punk underground performances and immersive soundsculptures into art galleries ever since.
