Peter Fengler is your artistic director of DE PLAYER but besides that he does his own stuff as Ultra Hobby Complex or Chocoman in his soloworks and he's a member of cult-I-media chroupe Coolhaven.

Peter Fengler is an explicit performer who, in this performance, comes up with a story based on the theme “BAROQUE, NON-BAROQUE: A Story of Proportionism,” which utilizes a unique polymorphous construction in which indicators in the form of “suggestions” play the leading role. In other words, he seeks to redefine nuance from a musico-linguistic angle. The repercussions of this approach can be found in his self-cut vinyl record productions, performances, written texts and lectures. The work invariably reverberates somewhere between intellectual pursuits and nonsense, expresses a fondness for “ultrahobbyism,” and is characterized by its subversive undertones with all of its related disturbing lucidity and preferences for a decided anti-aesthetic. It is both a commentary on contemporary political issues as well as a reflection on the medium and the scene itself. Ultimately, it is not what it appears to be while, at the same time, it is nothing more than what it is.
