MIMEO (brief for the Music in Motion Electronic Orchestra) was initially a promoter’s task. In 1997, Hans Falb, Peter vehicle Bergen, and Gerlinde Koschik come up with a travelling event, the Music in Movement event. They asked numerous European improvisers dealing with consumer electronics to participate to the function. The MIMEO, an electronic-free improvisation-based entity, would follow the event from location to location. Music in Movement visited Nickelsdorf, the Hague, and Wuppertal, and the promoters needed to call it quits. A Compact disc of music put together from these three shows, Queue, was initially released around the German label Grob in 1998 (as a restricted CD-R item) and later on found by Perdition Plastics. After the 1st concert was over, the promoters’ task had turn into a music artists’ task. Eight of these — Keith Rowe, Phil Durrant, Thomas Lehn, Gert-Jan Prins, Cor Fuhler, Christian Fennesz, Peter Rehberg, and Jérôme Noetinger — made a decision to keep the device alive and recruited four fresh users: Kaffe Matthews, Marcus Schmickler, Rafael Toral, and Markus Wettstein. This lineup performed three concerts in the Jack port Pohl Presents… event in Cologne, Dec 1998. A two-CD arranged recorded between displays, Electric Seat + Table, premiered in 2000 on Grob.
