Inspired by various quotes that have impacted or held a particular meaning to <dE/mutE>'s Jochen Bettgens, <dE/mutE> collaborated with Mary Urbach, Warszawa, Psychepoppet, N.fra and Tim Berghoff to create a new collection of electronic and atmospheric compositions.

<dE/mutE> will also be featured on the upcoming single "Ghosts" by Psychepoppet where he lends his remixing skills.
From the Berlin School and the sounds of early Industrial, <dE/mutE> has been influenced by and immersed in sound construction and composition since the 1980's.
In addition to his own works, <dE/mutE>, also works with Simona Turini and Ingo Loeb on "CALENDAR - an annual cycle in word - sound - image." Simona provides text and spoken word as Ingo contributes oppressive and touching images and <dE/mutE> layers loops of musical phrases and sounds.
<dE/mutE> has also provided remixes for Bad Sector, Epoch, Zindagi and Psychepoppet.
