Gregor Nicolai (bass) – It seems to fit perfectly! I was really lucky growing up in a house with a rehearsal room and a family which was always down to jam. Learning e-bass and drums in a early age, I started with a Reggae-Band in my teens. In high school I organized concerts and learned how to handle a mixer. Since then I’m working as a sound engineer and a dj. After school I went to a music school in Neukölln and prepared myself for the Jazz-studies. Since 2017 I’m studying Jazz-E-Bass in Leipzig. In 2020 we build a 9-piece Band called „Oluma“ which is combining Afrobeat, Funk, Brazilian and Jazz music. I’m also playing in a Band called „Milonaut“, „Lacey Flea“ and „Kardamom Kollektiv“.

Georges-Emmanuel Schneider (violin with dub-station)
French-Swiss violinist Georges-Emmanuel Schneider studied for eight years with the legendary violinist Ruggiero Ricci at the Mozarteum University of Salzburg, which was followed by a busy concert life as a soloist, chamber musician and ensemble player throughout Europe and worldwide. Throughout all this time Georges had showed a strong interest for contemporary and avant-garde music. Since years now as a sound artist he also deals with electronic music and searches for new ways of expression with his instrument. In 2018 he completed his expertise in this field in achieving a Max/MSP certification at the IRCAM in Paris. Georges’s violin playing is highly versatile and stands for avant-garde, jazz, free improvising, electroacoustic music, ambient, electronic beats and above all for a unique fusion sound that unites elements of all these music genres in order to create a new way of playing the violin.
Mathieu Pe (guitar, synths, horns)– aka. Matjö is a Musician, Producer and Vlogger Based in Berlin.
While often referred to as a Trumpet Player, Mathieu Pé is also playing Guitar, Bass, Keyboards and electronics.
At home in adventurous cross-over electro Bass Music Projects like Braintheft, Jazzsteppa or [trap.], his particular set of skills made him a go-to Studio and live Musician in the European Reggae Scene allowing him to work with artists like Gentleman, Kaizers Orchestra, Jahcoustix, Nosliw, Bitty McLean…just to name a few.
As a producer, Mathieu is as versatile as he is as a musician, taking advantage of his wide instrumental palette to reach any style from Ambient to Hip-Hop through Techno, Funk, Reggae, Dub, Trap, Dubstep Electro-Jazz… Since 2017 he is hosting a Music Production Vlog offering Bitwig Studio tutorials both in English and French.
Genys (dub, efx, subs) is a Lithuanian born dj, producer and sound designer with Bitwig in Berlin. On this mission Genys will serve as the dubmaster supreme for the evening applying live spacial efx to various members of the band. If you hear some nasty sub bass in any tracks then there is a good chance its coming form here…
Hakim Azmi (keys) – Is our mysterious multi-instrumental superhero as there are no know photos of him in existence… but the resonance from his playing lingers on to this moment. On his first 2 Immaculate Contraption missions he played keys masterfully. As it turns out, he actually considers himself a drummer!
Chris Sergeant (guitar)
Christopher’s parents gave him a real book at two. He largely ignored it until he was in his 20s and decided it was time to study jazz. Studying jazz put him off jazz forever. He spent a while not making music. As he became involved with more and more projects across Europe, jazz and other improvised music slid back into his life like a slimy snake. This is now mostly what he does.
Scottie b (vocals)
Scottie b started the Immaculate Contraption series in New York City back in the mid 1990’s. He started out as a Dj and dub master at Skizum Studios in the DUMBO Brooklyn waterfront loft scene. After relocating to Berlin he evolved into an improvisational vocalist with various bands, Djs and music projects.
“I enjoy living the process of curating the catalysts and participating in the emergent alchemy that materializes out of resonant collective presence…”
