Guido Hübner founded Das Synthetische Mischgewebe (aka DSM) in the early 1980's in Berlin. With a loose ensemble of individuals of different disciplines DSM worked in many different forms of artistic expressions ranging from concerts and performances to mixed-media installations with topics in neurology and cognitive science. Works have been presented in most parts of Europe, New York, Montreal and Sao Paulo. However, DSM is mostly recognised for it's musical output, having released numerous cassettes, vinyl records and CD's on labels based in Europe, Japan and the United States. The descriptive keyword for the music is "montage" framed by fragment and collage. Mostly, but not exclusively, working with concrète and electronic sounds, the interest of the experimental approach is to explore elements were a given combination of sounds is perceived as associated, united, blended together to appear as a continuity and were as disconnected, fragmented, divided components that evoke rupture and how both can be combined and shaped into a significant structure.
Besides numerous solo release and concerts DSM has collaborated with many artist such as ERG (USA), ARTIFICIAL MEMORY TRACE (cz), THE OVAL LANGUAGE (ger), MSBR (jp), VESTIGE VERTICAL (ger), THIERRY MADIOT (f), RADU MALFATTI (aut), CLAUS VAN BEBBER (ger), TBC (ger), TORE HONORE BOE(norway).
In 2000 DSM were granted a residence in the studio to construct electro-acoustic music for The Arts Academy Of Berlin and resulted in a piece for four instrumentalists with accompaining CD for each, entitled "The CD-Player in My Life". This was composed for the ZEITKRATZER ENSEMBLE (ger), and later a piece for Saxophone and Electronics entitled "Blasenleiden" for ULRICH KRIEGER (ger).
