Born in Singapore, Silvio Tommasini has nevertheless grown up in Basel, where he became interested at an early age in gothic, punk and EBM music. From this first contact with music, the artist has retained an attraction to dark and wild music, producing since then a haunting techno, dark and punctuated by punk and industrial lyrics, the distorted vocals linking different layers of sound. In Zurich, where he moved about fifteen years ago to found the label Spezialmaterial, he is quickly noticed for the quality of his performances, both spectacular and wild, connoisseurs even calling him a “phenomenon”. Winner of different awards from the city of Zurich for his work, he composes a third album, Teatime in Medellin (2011), following a tour of Latin America. Always on the move, traveling and experimenting, Monoblock B composes, in parallel with his productions, works for the theatre and artistic installations. Releasing a fourth album, Reality Check, right now this fascinating artist will celebrate his 20-year career on the stage of the Zoo as part of Présences Electroniques Geneva.
