THE STROJ - started to realize the idea of constructing an audio rhythmical machine. Their volition for distinctly physical musical access, oriented them into exploration of motion, that produces sound, and which brought them to the conclusion that traditional (i.e. serial manufactured musical instruments, won't fit the job. The alternative lied at the nearest waste yard: parts of dumped machines, empty fuel and chemicals containers, construction pipes and various screws, proved to be defiant enough to the strong strikes of sticks, hammers and chains.
They describe themselves in the third person as an ‘audio rythmical machine’, their performances are ‘urban rituals’ and they ‘call for the listener’s motoric action’.
