Olaf Rupp - electric guitar
Rudi Fischerlehner - drums
They can make quite a fuss in the china shop. But the aim is not to destroy things - it is about creating spaces, the air and the hidden silence amidst all the rubble that begets something special. A creative furor comes along with just enough ease to make sure that in the end everything fits together well to form a meandering whole. There is an organic wilderness in this music gaining ground so irreverently that if you are able to enjoy a note, a sound, a beat just for what they are: a note, a sound, a beat, then you will have fun to see the wood for the trees.
The collaboration of Olaf Rupp and Rudi Fischerlehner as
XENOFOX dates back to 2014. In addition to years of playing live
in clubs and at festivals, their latest studio album "The Garden
Was Empty" was released on Audiosemantics in early 2023.

one of the best duos that the combination of these two
instruments currently has to offer if it comes to improvised
thrilling ride from start to end, they create a whole world
filled with rackety riffs & rickety rhythms, all to this
überwältigend leger und zugleich bis an den oberen Rand
angefüllt mit spontangenialen Ideen."
Duo Xenofox liefert mit dem Album „The Garden Was Empty“ einen
hypnotischen und basslastigen Mix aus Hi-Hat-Expressionismus
und entgrenztem Rock."
