Into the brotherhood of talented and disabled geniuses (Stevie Wonder, Stephen Hawking, Gilbert Montagné, Michel Petrucciani – uncheck as appropriate), please welcome One and his brand of noisy battery-powered electro. Unable to carry anything too heavy, One has turned his physical weakness into a musical strength by equipping himself with small lightweight machines that run on batteries.
In August 1996, One released a demo and played a couple of gigs in Vienna, Austria. Then… nothing else happened until the « Alpha Noise Fetishism » EP emerged in 2018. One’s influences – not always perceptible, but definitely present – are : Laibach, Kraftwerk, early Ministry, and Yasuhito Fujinami.
