Wörle and Sledziecki were residents at Studio for Electro- Acoustic Music / STEIM in Amsterdam 2008 and 2010 and received a stipend from the Film- und Medien- stiftung NRW for their radioplay "Fluchtpunkte". They live in Berlin and produce also film music and musical theatre. They manage the label satelita and also ZAM e.V. - Platform for
Adventurous Music- a platform for international projects. In 2013 they wrote and produced the music theatre GHOST TAPE XI about the use of music in military operations, as well as the Polish-German festival AVANT AVANTGARDE about experimental music before the 20th century. Since 2012 they have developed with the ensemble "gamut inc" mechanical music-machines, that can be controlled via Computer. These Jules-Verne-like instruments are driven by specifi c self-developed controller software so that enable not only note playing, but the complex sonic qualities come to light. With gamut inc they have received commissions by AchtBrückenFestival and invitations for prestigious festivals like New Music Festival Montreal, NuMusic Festival Norway, jauna muzika Festival Vilnius and clubs like Berghain in Berlin. The machines came about as part of the
two-year project, Avant Avantgarde — initiated by Wörle, Sledziecki and Michal Libera - funded by Kulturstiftung des Bundes - which was dedicated to the diversity and genius of pre-twentieth-century musical experimentation.
