The name of the duo is inspired in the actor Klaus Kinsky who had the leading role in the film "Nosferatu". The group bases its works on a minimalist rhythmic (mainly based on sequencers) and on a non-traditional electronic instrumentation creating oneiric environments and symphonic textures within a space open to sound experimentation and improvisation. Klauss is well-known for the intensive use of electronic, analog, and digital equipment deploying a complex and unusual instrumentation in the concerts; said equipment is also used in order to elaborate its compositions and adapt its repertoire and instruments to the climate suggested by each stage space, every performance being a unique event. Klauss has given concerts in several of the main stages of the City of Buenos Aires, and in Barcelona, Bogota, Montevideo, Madrid, and New York. By the end of 1997, Klauss edited "Cielos Móviles" ("Mobile Skies") with works composed between 1990 and 1995; at the beginning of 2000 "Metales Perfectos" ("Perfect Metals") was edited, a double album with the principal themes of the group´s repertoire since 1996 and several improvisations and new themes. Currently, Klauss is recording a new album and preparing its future presentations in New York city and in Europe and also editing its first album (unpublished) recorded between 1990 and 1991 which also contains some themes recorded in concerts throughout the last ten years.
