the history of ex machina
ex machina is a music project founded by me (Claudio Chiriatti) in 1999. right from the start i used the possibilities of alternative distribution ways of my output over the internet. the first two albums were distributed exclusively over the internet. after a two year hiatus on new releases i signed a contract with the label FUEGO to release the music under that label.
after i moved back to my roots from Düsseldorf to my birth town Clausthal-Zellerfeld in 2008, i realized that working in the studio alone is boring and began looking for some new collaborators for ex machina. during my search i found my old friend Tobias Schwerdt who coincidentally just has been moved back from Berlin to Clausthal and who has played drums in several bands and projects in Berlin. after some trial sessions in the machina we realized very soon that this is a fertile and exciting partnership.
ex machina is completely independent. even though the label releases and distributes the music, the overall responsibility for every artistic decision, the artwork and the presentation are our affair.
