SCHNITT is a project created in 2007 by Amelie Duchow and Marco Monfardini. The artistic collaboration developed from the common interest for electronic music and visual art. The individual visions and styles from the 2 artists lead to SCHNITT in a unique form of expression. In 2007 SCHNITT presents SIZESPEC an audiovisual performance. The inspirations for this project arrive from the textile world from which SCHNITT extracts images and sounds of the industrial process. Combining the technical dynamics with the transformed elements of sound SIZESPEC transmits an individual and different view of this industry. In 2007 SCHNITT  releases their first record “Pferdchen” for the swiss label Invisible Recordings/IT’S, followed by the compilation “Snob Night” – CD (Video-Rai/Rai Trade) and at the compilation “Minimalismo Italiano” – CD (Registrazioni Italiane). In 2008 Amelie Duchow and Marco Monfardini collaborate on the realisation of Airloop 1.0 an installation and performance based on a videoloop of 40 minutes. In 2010 Schnitt presents SYNCHROPATH an audio/video project focused on a synchronism as a method of composing. In 2011 SYNCHROPATH is released on DVD. With Synchropath, Schnitt participates at several international Festivals as the Elektra Festival in Montreal, the Gogbot Festival in Enschede and at the Robot Festival in Bologna. 2011 for  the presentation of  the lighting installation GROWING BY NUMBERS at the Grattacielo Pirelli in  Milan, the duo Schnitt accompanies the event with a site specific sonorization. In behalf of their participation at the International Feel Festival in Florence 2013, Schnitt presents a limited edition release of the SYNCHROPATH LP.
