'Strøm' consists of Gaudenz Badrutt (*1972), pianist and electronic musician and Christian Müller (*1971) clarinetist, electronic musician and composer. Both studied at the 'Hochschule für Musik und Theater Bern/Biel'.
Gaudenz Badrutt and Christian Müller, two musicians from Biel, combine various musical ingredients under the name 'Strøm'; electro-acoustic improvisation meets conceptual music, ideas from new music meet free-jazzy eruptions, earthy and impulsive energy meets spacey spheres. 'Strøm', under the direction of Barbara-David Brüesch, has produced theatre music for the 'Staatstheater Dresden', the 'Theaterhaus Gessnerallee Zürich', the 'Stadttheater Chur' and the 'Stadttheater Bern'. They have also performed in underground rock cafes, museums, worked on installative open-air concepts and together with various musicians including Hans Koch, Martin Schütz, Ralph Steinbrüchel, Ernst Thoma and Fabian Kuratli.
The band received the 'coup de coeur' award of distinction from the Music Commission of the Canton of Bern in 2002 and the first prize at the 'Concours de Reding' (Competition for Improvisation of the Swiss Association of Musicians) in 2004.
