Gudrun Gut’s CV is an eclectic one, spanning a wide range of media and collaborations.
While still a student at the Hochschule der Künste, Berlin (1978-84) Gut first came to prominence in the early eighties as part of a scene the media dubbed “ingenious dilettantes”. A member of Mania D (with Bettina Koester and Beate Bartel) and an early incarnation of Einstürzende Neubauten she soon formed successful eighties all-female art rock band, “MALARIA!” with Bettina Koester, then touring Europe and the USA with a 5 piece line up including Manon P.Duursma, Susanne Kuhnke, Christine Hahn. “Malaria!” is still talked about and even reached the charts in 2001 via a “kaltes Klares Wasser” remix by “ChicKs on Speed”, incidentally.
In the late eighties Gut was part of three women band Matador (with Manon P. Duursma and Beate Bartel) and started to use a computer for her compositions – since the early nineties Gut has been responsible for some film scores, videos and radio plays. In 1991 she started the Miasma Project, an international mixed media collaboration with MYRA DAVIES (Canada).
Two years later she founded the OCEANCLUB, a loose collective of likeminded souls with a unique approach for music, taking it from a variety of angles. A result was the Pop CD “G.Gut: Members of the Oceanclub” which was recently rereleased on Moabit Musik including an extra cd with remixes.
Founder and owner of two labels (Monika Enterprise and Moabit Musik) Gut promotes unconventional attitude. Moabit Musik (established 1990, 15 releases to date) reissues material by Malaria!, Matador, Miasma and other projects with a personal involvement, while Monika Enterprise supports young artists in the realm of new electronic/independent music (established 1997, over 50 releases to date) such as Quarks, Barbara Morgenstern, Komeit or Contriva.
As skilled audio engineer, programmer and record producer Gut is active in the technical production and commercial sectors of the recording industry.
Introduced to internet broadcasting and new media communications Gut curates or produces live electronic media events all over Europe, featuring both her own work (as a DJ / Music selector) and that of other artists (Monika Label Nights, Oceanclub Nights, Marke B – a Berlin Label gathering curated by oceanclub- Gudrun Gut, Thomas Fehlmann and Daniel Meteo).
Together with Thomas Fehlmann Gut hosts and co-produces OCEANCLUB Radio, a weekly 2 hour show of “musica obscura” on Radio Eins, Berlin.
Apart from her eclectic DJ appearances in Clubs and at Festivals Gut recently completed her solo album which was released in April 2007 and is now doing live-performances with her laptop and microfone accompanied by videoclips.
