Markus Reuter + Tim Motzer
Markus Reuter and Tim Motzer began working together on various projects starting in 2008 with a live broadcast of their duo on WXPN Stars End. The first sessions were largely based around soundscaping and looping. Later these sessions would turn into their critically-acclaimed Descending album.
They have further collaborated on the upcoming TUNER album, tentitively titled FACE which features drummer Pat Mastelotto among many others. 60-70 hours marks Motzer intensive guitar tracking alone, and that makes up only a small bit of this large scale Reuter work. No date yet on this release.
The first Motzer-Reuter webcast on 1k Sessions happended October 17, 2010, and on October 6, 2013 Reuter & Motzer presented Solo Solo Duo, Space is the Place at a famous film studio in South Philadelphia.

Markus Reuter (featuring Tim Motzer) – Star’s End
One 59-minute live electro-acoustic improvisation with ambient character and contemporary classical sensibility. Both Markus and Tim are feeding Markus’ live processing setup with their quite different guitar tones that then get transformed into deep and ever evolving soundscapes.
Star’s End is the second album in Markus Reuter’s “featuring” series of releases with extraordinary musicians.
