Their SoundCloud has been updated to inform us that the track is called 'Von Neumann Replicator'. It also has the following text: John von Neumann's Universal Constructor is a self-replicating machine in a cellular automata (CA) environment. It was designed in the 1940s, without the use of a computer. The fundamental details of the machine were published in von Neumann's book Theory of Self-Reproducing Automata, completed in 1966 by Arthur W. Burks after von Neumann's death.

Dopplereffekt, an historically major figure on the techno scene will be performing live at Club Transbo this thursday february the 23rd. The American producer, originally from Detroit but currently living in Germany for the past 10 years or so, is expected to shed light on the mystique surrounding his identity as well as introducing his vision of an ideal society with a rather dark electronic music, heavy atmospheres and definitive claims.
This duo show may well be appealing for those who developed a true sense of electronic music though the curious party-goer won't be disappointed. This highly anticipated show is to be on the top of the MUST list at our Club. The Hacker, living just miles away in Grenoble will supervise the evening as a storyteller. He will remind us that there's a form of electronic music, a no bullshit and desperate hedonism kind of form.
