is the latest of the many names used by Frans de Waard, using a much more dynamic approach to sound, through very lo-fi electronics, Walkman, sound effects en the high end technology such as iPad and laptop (although the latter more for recording than anything else). As Modelbau he has played concerts in The Netherlands and Germany and released cassettes for Barreuh, Maneki Neko and Bookend Recordings as well as KormDigitaal. In concert he reaches for the superloud and the super quiet.
All of the releases by Modelbau have been recorded live, usually as part of preparing for live concerts and careful planning. 'Hyphen' contains pieces recorded as part of preparing for a series of concerts with Sindre Bjerga and Orphax in April 2015.
