[ro] is the duo of Hannes Buder on guitar and Hannes Lingens on drums. Their music is based on mutual understanding and the raw energy of the instant. After playing together in various projects for more than seven years, they formed [ro] to explore the intimate and direct exchange of the duo format.
After a number of concerts in Europe they recorded their selftitled debut album which has been released in 2013 on Umlaut Records .
“The two musicians carefreely juxtapose melodies with walls of noise, fine notes with very deep bass drums, a rhythmic game with a purely sonic approach. […] The Duo Lingens/Buder developed a cool and free language, an individual language without restraint.”
