Electronic music in STEIM's context is always strongly related to the physical and direct actions of a musician. In this tradition, STEIM supports artists in residence such as composers and performers, but also multimedia and video artists to develop setups which allow for improvisation and performance with individually designed technology. The name of the label is inspired on Dick Raaymakers Nachtmuziek.

alexander chernyshkov died in 2063 by being stabbed down in the metro in paris, apparently because he was selling some forbidden records and other material. he started his career as a decent and gifted composer and in 2014 decided to do movies but only for some years, in order to find, that the real art is daily life and the other way around, so he became a constant installation in vienna and in the life of ma artists. he became famous for his artwork in 2021, when he connected a living cow to the web 3.0 and started mutating the cells of the cow by random rotistic processes. the cow later started talking and killing innocent animals and was therefore slaughtered, which became a famous documentary by the director niklas seidl.
in 2030 they started doing their "socio-fascistic" actions in athens and kuala lumpur and got imprisoned for drinking zwickl in the öffentlichkeit.
Nachtstück Records is a label that was created with a commitment to philantropic endeavours. throughout 5 years, we donated 1000 euros to charity and moved people to do the same for us and within ourselves.

Wolfgang Fuchs is amazing on his respective woodwinds. He displays some breathtaking abilities here. Damon Smith and Jerome Byerton are a perfect match, as they provide the perfect addition to the reedist. Michael Oelgeschlaeger
