Creator of unstoppable, magnificent and subversive songs that could be defined as gum-robot-pop-disco-electro-dada and at the same time a musician with a long history in noisy experimentation and in the most radical electroacoustic. In order to understand this properly Hamburg's influences in Reznicek must be emphasised. Hamburg is a city which has an important concentration of the freakiest electronic music with a crazy micro-scene of pop retrofuturism and experimental sonorous agitation which revolves around unique characters such as Felix Kubin, the visual artist Mariola Brillowska, Gunter Adler, Tim Buhre (Klangkrieg, duo with Felix Kubin), Reznicek himself or the labels Gagarin Records (Kubin again) and Storage Records. Before starting Nova Huta in 1998, Günter Reznicek already had a long career, which started at the end of the eighties, working in the field of concrete music, composing a great number of sonorous pieces and combining acoustic instruments (he also plays the guitar) with electronic ones. In 1996 he edits his first CD as Reznicek: "Stube" (Odd Size, 1996).
That same year he works with Klangkrieg in a joint LP, "Allergie und Gegenwelt" (Wachsender Prozess, 1996). Since then he has collaborated actively with Felix Kubin, Klangkrieg and Mariola Brillowska, painter and multimedia artist with whom he has worked in montages such as "Las Vegas Show" or "Grand Prix D'Amour" (porno karaoke show). In 1998 he starts two new projects: Nova Huta (electropopshow lo-fi via Casio) and Groenland Orchester, electronic duo with Jyrgen Hall, aka Gunter Adler, with two published CDs: "Trigger Happiness" (Staubgold, 1999) and "Nurobic" (Staubgold, 2001). Regarding Nova Huta, his first album as such appeared in 1999 with the "eloquent" title of "At Bambji Robot's Nonstop Datscha" (Storage Records) containing eight pills of genuine "datschadelic music". 2004 has been the year of Nova Huta's return. His last record, "Here Comes My Seltsam Voice" (edited by the Portuguese label Variz), is a fiesta, a sonorous show with its dose of cosmopolitan glamour (sang in three different languages, including Portuguese, by voices serving the "datschadelic" universe), with the usual strokes of casiopop, robotic lounge and martian disco party.
