Valerio Tricoli, Stephane Mathieu and Jason Lescaleet
Thu 11 Oct, 21.30 sharp @ Ausland Berlin Lychener Str. 60 Pberg
Stephan Mathieu is a self taught composer and performer, working in the field of electroacoustics and abstract digitalia. His sound is largely based on early instruments, environmental sound and obsolete media, which are recorded and transformed by means of experimental microphony, re-editing techniques and software processes involving spectral analysis and convolution; it has been compared to the landscape paintings of Caspar David Friedrich, the work of Colorfield artists Mark Rothko, Barnett Newman and Ellsworth Kelly. He currently collaborates with Sylvain Chauveau, Robert Hampson / Main, Taylor Deupree, Caro Mikalef, van Wissem and David Sylvian.
Jason Lescaleet‘s sound world occupies a space between noise, contemporary composition, and minimal electronics. Using decidedly primitive tactics and equipment (e.g. antiquated reel-to-reel recorders, damaged tape, etc.), his work focuses on extreme frequencies and microscopic audio detail. Jason Lescalleet is an exciting tape-music artist. He’s been a member of Due Process, performed and recorded with Keith Rowe,Joe Corley,Jason Kahn, Hudak, Bhob Rainey and Greg Kelley, and most recently
Graham Lambkin in their Breadwinner project. Lescalleet lives and works in the state of Maine. He has released music on significant labels such as PAN, Erstwhile Records, KYE, Intransitive Recordings and RRR.
Valerio Tricoli is a Berlin-based composer, improviser, sound installation artist, producer, sound engineer and curator bridging musique concrète and conceptual forms of sound with a radical interest in how reality, virtuality and memory relate to each other during the acoustic event. He mostly uses analogue electronic devices (reel-to-reel tape recorders, synthesizers, microphones, light effects, ultrasonic speakers). The structure of the setup is
ever-changing however, seeking multiple relations between the performers, the device and the space in which the event takes place.

FAUSTO MAIJSTRAL (Musique Concrete, Drone/NZ,IT)
Fausto Maijstral is the duo of DuChamp (IT) and Will Gresson (NZ). Together they perform dense, musique concrete/drone pieces that explore memory and lived experience through heavily processed instruments and field recordings. They performed with Concern (US), Family Battle Snake (GR), Steindor Kristinsson (IS), Iku Sakan (JP), Bemydelay (IT) and Rella the Woodcutter (IT), and opened the 2011 edition of Occultofest in Ausland, Berlin.

KRAPOOLA (Impro, Sound Exploration/ES)
Krapoola is a tamer who explores the ways that materials interact when the entropicio happens. Noise is a part of this, not a reality by itself. Along this learning path a memory has formed itself and oblivion has appeared. The mutation has just begun. Regression? For his performances Krapoola’s self-built devices are the usual. They mostly proceed from detritus and go towards the secret. One of his tricks is to spin three records at the same time – one at normal speed, another one twice as fast or slow and one gets played backwards.

Mon Oct17th @ NK, Elsenstrasse 52, Treptow
Collective led by Kawabata Makoto. There are currently around 30 members, famous and unknown, musicians, artist, dancers, farmers etc. In order to follow and document their multifarious activities, in 1998 the Acid Mothers Temple family record label was set up. The Acid Mothers Temple & The Melting Paraiso U.F.O. group is just one part of collective’s activities. Over a decade ago Kawabata became involved with a commune of Japanese beatniks and hippies, but the whole left-wing ethos didn’t really sit right with him. The members of Acid Mothers Temple have several houses all over Japan, and each of us is free to come and go between these houses. So we’re not a commune in the sense that all of us live together in the same place. There are some members who like to travel, others who stay at home. Everyone is free to live in whatever way they like. Our slogan is “Do Whatever You Want, Don’t Do Whatever You Don’t Want!!”. As a result of this philosophy, we have lost money and the trust of society as a whole, but we’ve gained time and freedom. When all the Aum Shinrikyo stuff was going on in Japan in 1995, there were quite a few of our members staying at AMT’s house. [NB Aum Shinrikyo, or Aum Supreme Truth, were the religious cult who carried out the poison gas attack on the Tokyo underground in 1995 that left 12 dead and over 1000 injured]. The neighbours mistakenly thought that our house was a secret Aum hideout and managed to get them evicted. Also, mountain villages are always suspicious of outsiders, and sometimes they are ostracised by the community. These kinds of problems pop up from time to time, but there’s not much we can do about it. One of our members is a farmer, living together with his fields and rice paddies. There’s another member who has travelled through the Australian deserts and lived with Aborigines. There’s others who are bumming round India. One went to Africa and never came back. One dropped out of a yakuza gang and decided to travel around Japan searching for mermaids. But we all live according to our slogan, and we all eventually return to the fold. They respect each others’ ways of life, and we try not to tie each other down. The “soul collective” only exists so that we can protect our freedom.

A new blogstar is born. Selektive Hören Archiv is an online site for documenting various elements of the live music scene in Berlin, Germany. There you will find photographs, videos and recordings from some of the small shows and events which take place every week in particular venues across the city.
Many of the artists are from outside Germany, and play in a multitude of different projects. The focus of this community is always on collaboration and improvisation, and as such many of the artists will appear numerous times in this archive as part of different ensembles. First post, about Italian noisester Torba and Japanese sound artist Tatsumi Ryusui, with pictures and an except of their live in Territorium 91. To get in touch with the blog runner, click here!

# Wed 18th May @ Ruf Reaktor, Landsberger Allee 54
IN ZAIRE (IT)
In Zaire is a psychedelic tribal quartet involving the memers of the italian duo G.I. Joe, Claudio Rocchetti and Stefano Pilia. Their performance is able to bring the audience into a psychedelic trip. But their music is not only psychedelic. They mix dub-funk drum rythms, tribal and african percussions, electrical-indian bassguitar melodies, arabic and psychedelic voices, and minimal-introspective electronic sounds.
