Currer Bells live in Berlin! fri 15 + sun 17 april! by DuChamp

Currer Bells live in Berlin!

Reunion show:
Penpal band Currer Bells play to celebrate the rare occasion of both members (Angeline Chirnside, Germany, and Tim Coster, Australia) being in the same space-time. A long-distance collaborative recordings project since 2007, homemade tiny sounds and dissolving instrumental riffs are posted between Europe and the South Pacific, and slowly songs eventuate. On holiday, they also make it happen live, playing Berlin 2009 and touring half of the USA on the Metal Rouge honeymoon 2010. This show is their first since the release of their self-titled 2010 LP on Germany’s own Quetzi Records.

FRI 15 Apr @ KuLe Auguststraße 10 Berlin

emotional quandaries & textural intrigue
+ DuChamp, The Shitty Listener, Benjamin Laurent Aman

Since visual artist and experimental musician Benjamin Laurent Aman relocated from France to Berlin, he has become a rising star of the capital’s established underground scene, marking himself out as a performer who deals with texture, frequency and field recordings with a distinct and unafraid ear. Founder of the cult Razzle Dazzle label, Aman is also one half of the French/US improv-duo Crystal Plumage.

Jason Honea (The Shitty Listener) was born on Whidbey Island, Washington in 1965. Keyed into his musical side at an early age, his church life and street life reflected this enthusiasm in both love and wonder. Cleaning up creeks and forming bands remain as two top favorite things! This history-hobbyist, wanderer, singer, music maker, and drawer is a Pisces Catholic living and working in Berlin. Besides releasing and performing as the Shitty Listener, Jason also plays in a number of projects including the Child Readers with Loren Chasse, the Knit Separates with Loren Chasse and Glen Donaldson, and Teenage Panzerkorps. Shitty Listener marries a punk ethos to the Jewelled Antler aesthetic.

DuChamp is an Italian scientist, musician and curator living in Berlin. A true pedal junkie, she switched rapidly from garage punk to psychedelia and from psychedelia to experimental music; from guitar to bass guitar and from baritone guitar to accordion, having bought a third hand one after have seeing Pauline Oliveros in concert. She makes drones with accordion and fx, in the attempt to re-create the sense of bliss of hearing the vacuum cleaner and the hair dryer when she was a child.

Sun 17 April @ Loophole Boddinstraße 60 Berlin

CURRER BELLS w/Fausto Maijstral

Fausto Maijstral is a multi-faceted band formed around the core duo of Italian scientist and musician DuChamp and sound artist Will Gresson of New Zealand. The band explores the middle ground between their mutual interest in experimental music, improvisation and the practice of field recording, performing largely improvised soundscapes with various instruments heavily processed during live performances. Individually both Rossella and Gresson have been involved in various solo and group performances, as well as contributing to several festivals in Berlin.
