Cortex was brought into being in 1999 by Alex and Daniel Buess. Diverse projects form an integral part of the Cortex biography: Radio productions for Radio DRS, various festival appearances (including at Taktlos, Tonart, Lucerne Festival) and collaborations with, for example, the Rumanian composer Iancu Dumitrescu and his ensemble Hyperion. In 2002 Dumitrescu wrote the piece 'Bolids&Contemplations' for Cortex, which then performed its world premiere in Bukarest.
Cortex's music is symphonic, multilayered and as mechanical as it is organic. It belongs to the large and relatively unexplored domain of contemporary electronic. Live electronic strategies, studio productions for film music and sound design all form important elements of Cortex. Cortex's music also includes sound visions from break-core, drum and bass, dub and other so-called 'New Electronics'.
