(official homepage) The Escalator was created by 2rt+TB, a Budapest born computer-addicted youth in 1988, by the inspiration of the music of Kraftwerk 2rt+TB later realised that the numbers are beyond the human and everything created by the human race. Since 1988 several musicians helped 2rt+TB on the stage, among them Igor 404 performed several times in live. The Escalator is about the evolution, where the humans are between the animals and the softwares.
