Tom Bench produces solo work as Hardworking Families, working with no­input mixer feedback, chairs, tape, electronics, zither, guitar, pieces of metal and many other sound­objects. Collaborations include Dylan Thomas and Murmel Rot.

Harvey Evident produces solo work as Swarbrooke, using self­-built hot­solder synth units, sequencers and circuit­bent electronics to create seething noise. He also plays drums and no­input mixer feedback.

Fedtschtschak was born when they plugged their no­input mixer systems into each other, forming one single sprawling feedback chain. Fedtschtschak performances are the coming together of 3 minds: Bench, Evident, and the oscillating hive­mind of the Fedt mixer network. The truth lies somewhere in the middle.
