Institut fuer Feinmotorik (IFF) is an artists' group working in different formats and media. Although the main activity is acoustic-art / music. IFF is located in Bad Säckingen, Berlin, Cologne and Karlsruhe (all Germany). The group was founded 1997 for a club-event in Basel (Switzerland) at Brisant kiosk/club. IFF produces different outputs (photography, video, music, drawing, computer-programming, printed matters etc.), organizes artistic-/cultural events, does lectures and workshops and publishes artistic goods such as music records, books etc. IFF got some reputation for their acoustic work with a reductionist set-up called octogrammoticum: 8 turntables, 4 DJ mixers + end-mixer, which is served by the group members. Anything (except records) which somehow fits between turntables and pick-up cartridges (household-rubberbands, paper-stickers, rubbergums, handicraft-tools + various tinker-trivias) may be played. Lately, IFF contributed to Art Exhibitions (e.g. MUDAM, Luxembourg), took part in the music-theatre 'Ensemble fuer Staedtebewohner' in Vienna, produced an abstract radioplay for RADIO ARTHUR (Swiss) and another one for RADIO ZERO (Portugal), they also published a book entitled 'Feinmotorik Kompendium' in 2005, and now release this new longplay record entitled ABGEGIFFEN on Marriage Records, Portland OR.
