Les Trucs are two human robots and a pile of electronic gadgetry. Half flesh, half wire. Half experiment, half pop. After having worked extensively in the fields of theatre and performance throughout the last years, Les Trucs are back in 2018, presenting their new record „Jardin de Bœuf“, a conceptual album about meat and organs leaving the body.
With their fast and energetic live-shows, the Frankfurt / Germany based human-machine-collective is building a scenery made out of noise and composition, voices and dance, always performing from the center of the room.
Charlotte Simon and Toben Piel from Frankfurt am Main work together as LES TRUCS since 2008. Origining from nursery, fine art studies and a proper punk/hc education they started as a proper liveband and continued to develop performances, theatrepieces, filmmusic and videos. Their work always connects to their surrounding space and situation, in form of soundconcepts for urban spaces, compositions for choirs or science fiction cicles they appear in DIY areas as well as and cultural/artcontexts.
They released records on international Labels such as Logic systems Music Airport,Tokyo, Fettkakao Vienna, Zeitstrafe and Staatsakt Hamburg and played concerts all around Europe, Israel and Japan. Together with Benjamin Bascom they run a cassettelabel for electronic experimental dancemusic called MMODEMM, present it in Dj sets all through Germanys clubs and organise events in Frankfurt (1,2 Piecefest, Der geheime Salon Mousonturm, Office du Pain)
