ANDREA BELFI
drums, precussion, electronics

“Wege is an astonishing album, created in part from two installation residencies in Austria and Brussels, for which Belfi developed a series of modular synth networks controlled by his percussion performances. A complex interwiring of mechanical and rhythmic devices that autonomously generated feedback and loop patterns whilst being restrained and guided by Belfi’s drumming.” Squealer magazine

You are here AKA the Maze, online program of the massive 2 weeks festival in West Germany, Xberg by DuChamp

‘You Are Here Festival’ (aka The Maze!), is a festival started in New York and now moved to Berlin’s WestGermany venue in September 15-29 of 2012. The ‘You Are Here Festival’, will feature a life size sculptural maze which will occupy the entire venue. Performers, of which there will be three to five per night, will have to negotiate the confines of the maze in order to execute their performance. The ingenuity, flexibility, and at times, frustration involved with doing this is a central ingredient of the ‘You Are Here’ experience. ‘You Are Here’ also emphasizes the art and music of local scenes and communities. Each events is curated by a different artist/curator/creature based in Berlin

All events will be in West Germany, Kottbusser Tor,  and if you had been to Occultofest 2012 you know how to find it ! For timing, check this page

Hermetistasis is a dramatic, instantaneous, violent and physical performance piece representing the Seven Alchemic Principles as explained by Hermes Trismegistus and the Emerald Tablet. One person at a time will be admitted to follow the transformative path of self realisation and our oneness with God, Nature and The Universe, by way of seven unusual encounters with strangers and self throughout the maze. The goal of the strange and brutal performance, coinciding with the 7 Alchemic Principles, is to push the limits of everyday consciousness and existence, and give keys to the hidden sublimations of everyday life. Due to the unrestrained handling of entrants, all must sign a waiver of duty of care, and tickets will be extremely limited. Entrants are advised to come on time and register their place in the piece. West Germany 7 till 10pm.

Upcoming this week, part 1 by DuChamp

Upcoming this week…with the bigger problem of Berlin, lack of ubiquity. Too many nice things, so make your choice…

[#]Mo Sept 10

Iku Sakan/Supermelle(JP/DK)  and Tasos Stamou (GR/UK) at Experimontag (Madame Claude)

IKU SAKAN & SUPERMELLE (Sun Horogram Music/JP,DK)
Iku Sakan is a experimental sound performer, improvisor and DJ from Osaka, Japan currently based in Berlin, Germany. Since 2009, he has been performed all over the world including important festivals in Europe as a member of several bands, such as ATP in the UK (with Maher Shalal Hash Baz) and Avantgard Festival in Germany. His music is a sort of weaving exercise, looking to find “soulful moments from soulless materials.” Iku explores music as ‘Myth-Science’ by combining computer processing, prepared recordings with a range of sounding objects (such as mini-massager, measure & oscillator).

http://soundcloud.com/ikusakan

Anders Lauge Meldgaard is the real name of the man behind Supermelle aka Frisk Frugt. He is coming out of the experimental music collective yoyooyoy based in Berlin and Copenhagen. Frisk Frugt (eng. Fresh Fruit) operates in his own quirky musical universe, where the genre of traditional Danish folk song writing and poetry in an unpretentious way are spiced up with elements from experimental rock, improvisation, drone, noise, electronica, lo-fi, free jazz and African high-life guitar. Here, the music arises at the intersection between the programmed and the hand played, and between the naive and the complex – where the sonorous clouds of tones from home-built instruments, brutal guitarriffs, synthdreams and saxophone improvisations are mixed together.

TASOS STAMOU (Electronics & Visual/GR,UK)
Tasos Stamou is a currently UK based performer of free improvised music and an electroacoustic composer. He has been collaborating with various experimental musicians and collectives (the London Improvisers Orchestra, Adam Bohman, Adachi Tomomi, Nikos Veliotis etc). His audiovisual project “Videodrones” consists of a handmade live electronics modular system which incorporates circuit bent musical toys and self-modified video mixers.

Rashad Becker is a shadowy figure. He describes his music as “playing the music of notional species”.
Luciano Maggiore (Palermo 1980) is an electroacoustic musician living and working in Bologna. In recent years he has developed a strong interest in the mechanisms of sound diffusion, utilizing speakers and various analog and digital media (walkmans, CD players, tape recorders) as his primary source.

He works regularly as a duo with Enrico Malatesta and Francesco Brasini. He has collaborated with Angstarbeiter, Auriga, Mario De Vega, John Duncan, Andrew L. Hooker, Seiji Morimoto, Seijiro Murayama, Valdoca Theatre, Zapruder Filmmakergroup, Zimmerfrei. His work is published by Senufo Editions and Boring Machines.

[#] SILVER APPLES, BLACK DICE AND MV/EE in FESTSAAL XBERG

Decades after their brief yet influential career first ground to a sudden and mysterious halt, the Silver Apples remain one of pop music’s true enigmas: a surreal, almost unprecedented duo, their music explored interstellar drones and hums, pulsing rhythms and electronically-generated melodies years before similar ideas were adopted in the work of acolytes ranging from Suicide to Spacemen 3 to Laika.

For over fifteen years, the highly influential Black Dice have continuously reinvented and mutated punk music into new sonic stews. The New York based trio of Eric Copeland, Bjorn Copeland, and Aaron Warren have released scores of albums, EPs, and singles on iconic labels (Gravity, 31g,Troubleman, DFA, Paw Tracks), that document their musical travels, from raw brutal thrash to inside-out pop anthems from way out.

MV&EE
w/ the Home Comfort Sound System: A spectral sound cinema show from the visionary American free-folk duo

The Home Comfort Sound System is built to MV&EE’s spec by sound engineer Tall of Suffolk’s Ambush Cinema and combines with 16mm projections, slides, oils, and customised lighting devised by Hogge of Bristol’s infamous Cube Cinema. Together they plan to reconfigure and retune each space with specially dreamt up environments channelling MV&EE’s homespun aesthetic. Good time front porch vibes, heavy acoustics and zero gravity jams blend with moving image, moonshine and local ales in this untethered and other-worldly a/v show.

[#] 12 Sept, tragic undecision…

She has worked with Mike Watt, Lydia Lunch, Bulbul, Willie Nelson or Sonic Youth, and has, since August 2009, when she, together with Marianne Faithfull and Marc Ribot in an concert for the opening of the Ruhr Triennale. With “In Animal Tongue”, a new album that lives mainly on the interplay of depression, melancholia and breaking through to anger. Carla Bozulich bathes once more formally in authenticity and emotion. Thematically, the album deals with her departure from Los Angeles and their nomadic existence in recent years. On the album there are many guests, with which it has taken the road truly fantastic collaborations. The core of her band currently consists of Sam Mickens (The Dead Science), Shahzad Ismaily (Laurie Anderson, Secret Chiefs, Sam Amidon) and John Eichenseer (jhno).

c) And yes, same nights, also Reigning Sound at Roadrunner Paradise in Berlin. Since the Occultofestgirls used to be a big fan of Oblivians (although we liked more “Bad girl” by Detroit Cobras than “Bad Man”)…is tough.
