LES TRUCS are available for live shows, tape DJ sets and a variety of artistic collaborations.

Two humanoids with a pile of electronic gadgetry.
Half flesh, half wire.  

With their fast and energetic live-shows, the Frankfurt-based duo is building a scenery made out of noise, composition, voice and dance, always performing from the center of the room.

Since 2008 Charlotte Simon and Toben Piel work together as Les Trucs. From the nursery, via fine art studies and a proper punk/hardcore education, they started as a band and continued to examine the intersection of music and theatrical production.

Their work always connects to the surrounding space and situation, as sound-concepts for urban spaces, compositions for moving choirs or science fiction manifesto. They appear in DIY areas as well as performing- and fine art contexts.

Les Trucs have played concerts all around Europe, Russia, Israel and Japan.

They run the tape label
 MMODEMM for experimental and electronic music.
