Biography


GEN035-Web2

B.I. was founded in Berlin some time in the mid-nineties. „How do you start a band? One guy supplied with talents and very few equipment, the other guy with none of this. But both enthusiastic about the elctronic underground of the early 80s.“ This is how Uwe Marx, the singer of B.I. described the beginning of the band. Roger Semsroth, who is responsible for the music, would spend most of his time experimenting with his synth and drum machine or anything else he could find to make some noise to record, while his cat was sleeping on the speakers. The band’s first tapes and EP’s have quickly been sold out and soon B.I. became one of the most important bands of the german electronic underground of their time. About 15 years later – or 2 albums, a collection of early recordings, an EP and many live shows later, the band dissolved into non-existence…

Roger has always been working on many other projects too such as Skanfrom, Television Set, sleeparchive, Civil Defence Programme, Others In Conversation… just to name a few. So nothing much has changed. Today Roger still spends a lot of his time experimenting with his synth and drum machine or anything he can find to make some noise to record… (while the same cat was still sleeping on the speakers until not too long ago… r.i.p.)
