Since 2005 Dr.Nojoke has been working on technoid sound-sculptures based on his archive of self-made noise-recordings he collected over the years. He defines a deep, funky, minimal, quirky, clicky micro-cut-up-music, he calls Clikno. Always with an experimental approach in production Dr.Nojoke relinquishes the conventional rave-signals and typical techno sounds (as the TB303 or 808/909 drum machines). He prefers to play with his own sounds. The de-composition of usual harmony- and melody-schemes is also important for him. He dislikes typical or popular sounds and hooklines. Although his sounds come to 95% from the acoustic, real world, he forms highly technological Clikno-music, which may not carry emotions in itself, but triggers and unleashes them.

Amidst all this well-considered concept is of course the element of fun and serendipity. The live show may feature instruments such as radio, crushed plastic bottles and souvenirs as Dr.Nojoke celebrates the joy of finding special sounds in everyday objects not usually appreciated for their musicality. This is part of the magic and fun of his performances. Dr.Nojoke is serious about what he does, but he doesn't take himself too seriously.
