“Company Divine” is the second tape released by Kitchen Leg records, released on March 30th. It features songs recorded in a a long subterranean artspace with arches and columns, located under the Galleria Umberto I in Turin, with an impressive natural reverb. In the five songs, an archaic form of blues meets the most ecstatic psychedelia and enchanting folk whispers. This tape capture the harvest of two days of improvisations with Eternal Zio’s Rella The Woodcutter and Rob Maggioni, around some songs feeding on devotion.

This week! To not miss…DuChamp, Biblo, Nika Son, a noise parade, Mushy… by DuChamp

Wed Jan 9th @ Loophole, Boddinstrasse 60 NK

NIKA SON + BIBLO + DUCHAMP w/FILIPE DIAS DE 

NIKA SON makes music with fieldrecordings, voice, analog and electronic instruments. Her music is composed of manipulated field-recordings, combined with instrumental fragments and sparse vocals. Playing live, her tracks are stretched and extended, using a groove box, varying instruments and contact-microphones. Sounds coming from somewhere deep down, circling, spinning and hovering between dark blue, red and grey. Some of her tracks have been released on compilations on m.mlabel, Alrealon Music and Wir rufen zurück (Demo-Dandies). As a DJ (Nikae) she plays records on a regular basis, mainly at the Golden Pudel Club in Hamburg, where she hosts, together with Ratkat, a monthly music and exhibition night.

BIBLO Istanbul based artist Biblo, has been creating music out of everyday noises, field recordings and lazy, confused pieces of beats for a while now. Her record “On Ugliness” was released in a limited edition of 200 pieces as the first ever record on Quetzi Records (a-musik/Cologne) in May 2010 and her latest album ’Projection’ isreleased in April 2012 through her bandcamp.

DUCHAMP  is an Italian scientist, musician and curator based in Berlin, religiously devoted to drone. She’s mainly inspired by the sound of the hairdryer, drone superheroines such as CC Hennix, Eliane Radigue, Pauline Oliveros, a long series of dronester lovers and by the lack of God. Her debut album will be release on vynil in January for Boring Machines (IT).

FILIPE DIAS DE  is a founding-member of Altes Finanzamt, musician and writer. After graduating in economics in Lisbon, moved to Asia (i.e. India, Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia) where he lived from 2006 till 2008. There he learnt sitar (Indian classical music), various Gamelan instruments (Balinese music) and Gender Wayang (Balinese xylophone used for shadow puppetry). After moving to Berlin (mid 2008), Filipe started exploring sitar in the context of experimental improvised music, developing new melodic constructions and also using objects.

Mario de Vega – born in Mexico City, 1979 his work overlaps relations between stability, failure, simulation and ambiguity with site-specific interventions, sound events, process-oriented projects, sculpture, modified electronics and sound improvisation. As an improviser, his practice explores the value of fragility & in-determination involving a wide range of customized objects, analog and modified electronics, turntables and computer based interfaces in different combinations.
http://www.mariodevega.info/

Jeff Surak – operates in the netherworld between composed and improvised music, moving between musique concrete, drone, noise, & free improvisation using whatever sound implements at hand. He has collaborated with such artists as Alexei Borisov, Zan Hoffman, Rinus Van Alebeek, Frans De Waard, and Michael Gendreau.

In 2006, Programmer, writer, performer and explorer Martin Howse co-founded xxxxx, organising one large-scale conference and concert series in London (xxxxx) and publishing the acclaimed xxxxx [reader].
Heavily improvised, playing with the collapse of massed, barely functional salvaged equipment and software systems made manifest in sound/noise and image, Howse presents a complex, process-driven constructivist performance; the symphonic rise of the attempt to piece together fugal systematics is played out against the noise of collapse and machine crash at the deserted border of control.

Scott Sinclair
 – is an audiovisual artist, performer, and programmer. Largely self-taught, and with no allegiance to any single scene, he usually creates work that involves harsh and humorous collages of different media, from computer music and video art to vocal improvisation and custom-made costumes. Sinclair has a long history in improvised music, and is known for his brutal and unpredictable performances mixing more ‘serious’ and ‘difficult’ elements with ‘low brow’ trash, which has found audiences strangely entertained on many tours in Europe, Australia, Japan, Russia, and North America.

Marta Zapparoli – Sound artist, performer, musician, studied fine arts and the soproano saxophone. In Bologna/Italy being involved in a series of experimental radio shows, multmedia performances,sound installations and various dance companies and aswell experimental multimedia theater events.The last decade she creates sound art using field recordings digital and custom analog tools as well as found instruments and objects. Her sonic work investigates environmental phenomena, acoustic ecology,noise pollution, focusing on sonic narratives & human emotions through decomposition and real-time manipulation, sounds that are considered non-musical or overheard.
https://soundcloud.com/martazapparoli

Musician, performer and founder of Idiosyncratics Records, Yannick Franck has developed an increasingly personal style that combines sharp acoustic research and abrasive walls of sound. Often described as trance-inducing, his music is based on the treatment of sources such as instruments and non-musical objects, voice, radio signals and field recordings. It ranges from fundamental acoustic explorations (The Staircase Continuum) to more stylistic-expressionistic searches (Memorabilia); two fields of investigation that tend to collide in his latest works.In the past, Yannick Franck has collaborated with Pietro Riparbelli / K11, Craig Hilton (Gauchiste, Loincloth), Phil Maggi, Alan Trench (World Serpent, Temple Music, Orchis) and Esther Venrooy among others and his music has been released on several labels including Silken Tofu, Young Girls Records, Sylvain Chauveau’s concept record house Onement and Italian label Silentes.

Topmodel  was Magnus Schaefer and Rinus van Alebeek on various keyboards and Mireia Guzman who made up spontaneous songs in spanish,german, english and gibberish. To some blind listeners their music reminded them of Malaria or the early Tödliche Doris. In the last years of the first decade of the new century, they were Momus’ preferred supporting act.After Magnus Schaefer`s decision to leave the group, topmodel continued, but mainly spend their time looking at a glass of milk. Now they are back. With a brand new idea. Tarot – Singing!

Mushy + Black Tar Jesus

MUSHY Italian artist directly from the underground experimental scene. Started in 2003. She’s got a double sided synth-wave slash kraut-psychedelic soul. Her sound reveals a charming world, made by the mixture of analog drum-machine loops, burgeoning cold drones, tempestuous noises and spectral chants which rise at the surface.

If you don´t like fanzines, something is wrong. ZINEFEST BERLIN! by DuChamp

Filed under: occultofest | Tags: , , ,

Dear zine-fans, distributors and do-it-yourselfers,

we’re inviting you to the second annual Zinefest Berlin, taking place at the SFE Gneisenaustrasse 2a in  Kreuzberg on the weekend of november the 3rd to 4th.

Looking back at last years zinefest, we had a wonderful time with independent publishers and zine-creators from all over the world getting to know each other, sharing ideas and planning future projects together. Like last year, we want to give you the opportunity to sell your zines, participate in talks and workshops or even to hold one yourself.

Table Applications are CLOSED.
We have over 40 stalls!

If you only have one or two issues of your zine and don’t want to sell them yourself there’s no need to apply for a spot. You can leave it on the Individual Zine Table. Just tell us the price and how many copies you have and at the end of the day you can pick up the money you earned and any extra copies left. If you’d like to volunteer to help sell zines, please get in touch. Volunteers needed during the festival days. If you’re interested, we can tell you the date and place of our next meeting via e-mail.

You can contact us at zinefestberlin@gmail.com. There’s more information on our website, where you can subscribe to our newsletter and find some info about our last year’s event.

Thank you for reading this! We’re looking forward to hear from you,

ZFB orga group

Fri 26 Oct: Strange Forces (AUS, psych-rock) +The History Of Colour TV (UK/DE, shoegaze) by DuChamp

Cranky bookings and Blitzgigs presents:

Strange Forces (AUS, psych-rock) +The History Of Colour TV (UK/DE, shoegaze)

+ DJ’s Augustine Gasoline and Ricky Thunder (Sound of Cobra)
Strange Forces debut full length, I’d Rather Listen To The Bloody Birds, is a typical slice of what we had come to expect from these Australian boys, the finest psych-rock band Berlin has to offer. Having spent some time back down under earlier this year, they’ve returned and finished off this long awaited record. After touring Europe last year and finishing with three dates in support of Mogwai on the German leg of their tour, it’ll be great to see these boys back in full flow after a long break from Berlin’s venues.

The History Of Colour TV release of their debut album, Emerald Cures Chic Ills, on November 7th.
The History Of Colour TV are without a doubt the best shoegaze band in Berlin. Having now added Marcus, aka Theo Rahkun, aka that beast of a drummer behind I Have No Mouth And I Must Scream and Skiing, The History Of…have replaced the drum machine with one of the best drummers in Berlin. This is going to be one to remember.

Augustine Gasoline and co on the decks play all the Rihanna, Madonna and Michael Jackson you could possibly need…plus more of course.

Oneida´s drummer Kid Millions live in West Germany as Man Forever! by DuChamp

Kid Millions live in West Germany, Xberg, 19-10-12 at 21

MAN FOREVER is Kid Millions´solo project. He´s a Brooklyn-based multi-instrumentalist, composer and writer who is perhaps best known as the drummer for Oneida. Man Forever, his vehicle for exploring the outer limits of drum performance, was created to overwhelm, to investigate the nuances that bloom in the midst of repetitive music, and to act as a pure sound experience.
Originally based on the idea of creating a sort of punk-infused Metal Machine Music for drums, Man Forever has evolved from a five or six full drum set ensemble to something a lot more stripped down. Based on two drummers playing single stroke rolls on a single drum and the patterns that emerge from that, Pansophical Cataract is propulsive without a pulse. Patterns evolve and burst through the static surface of the material, much of which was produced by electric instruments, though “Ur Eternity” remains mostly drums with only a few bass tracks making an appearance. The sounds created by these instruments were based on the drones that Colpitts hears when he is practicing (the not fully conscious singing or humming that arises when one practices alone), and then augmented and enhanced by the other musicians on the record. The repetitive rolls create a phasing effect, a music in and of itself, and the dynamic shifts that occur when the other instruments enter become not mere notes, but grand events. In the live environment, these shifts and phasing effects, are amplified through sheer volume and duration. “Surface Patterns” and “Ur Eternity” are 30 and 40 minutes respectively (though have been shortened to around 18 minutes per side on record), creating an even more dramatic effect. Pansophical Cataract can be likened to watching Niagara Falls. You can’t expect to see every drop of water that crests over the ridge, but you are overwhelmed with the shear scale of the thing, and therein lies the aspiration for this record. Dive right in.
