The team – Martin, Severin and Miller — whose stories now compile a novel. Martin (a multi-award-winning architect and designer), Severin (a full-blooded musician, singer and electro-wunderkind) and Miller (an author and director working on international film projects) have joined forces as Doctors on Decks. Together their influences and professions cross over, interact and multiply to deliver something fresh and new.
The diversity of their backgrounds shines through in their productions. Centring around melodic techno, new ideas influx from everywhere – from psychedelic rock to punk, from the movie theatre to contemporary art.
