This week: Man meets bear, CC Hennix, Derek Holzer, Aidan Baker… by DuChamp

Busy week. And delightful.

[#] Wed 16 Jan @ Intersoup bar, Schliemannstr. 31 Pberg

Jacob Faurholt (DK) and Man meets bear (CA)

Man meets Bear has been a lake scientist from Ontario and the name of a totem pole in British Columbia which depicts a man climbing up a tree, facing a bear climbing down the tree. Today she includes a solar engineer and an Experimental Housewife.

Danish songwriter Jacob Faurholt has released four solo albums between 2005 – 2012, the latest Dark Hours, was released in Germany through Raw Onion Records in July. Dark Hours was well received and the English site Drowned In Sound wrote the following: “Jacob Faurholt instantly transports the listener to the sort of gothic Americana hinterland that has been populated by the likes of Will Oldham and Sparklehorse.” Faurholt moved to Berlin in 2010, and has since played more than 50 shows in Germany. He has also played support jobs for Grizzly Bear, The Black Heart Procession, The Handsome Family, and fellow danes Efterklang. Faurholt is also active with his psych pop band Crystal Shipsss.

BORN OF SIX: AMELIA CUNI / CATHERINE CHRISTER HENNIX / WERNER DURAND / STEFAN TIEDJE

Amelia Cuni – solo voice
Catherine Christer Hennix – drone voice
Werner Durand – invented wind instruments, drones
with Stefan Tiedje – sound

BORN OF SIX comes out of the traditions of Dhrupad, Early Minimalism and Just Intonation.

„A solid foundation is the best basis for the fundamental“

Narada´s Exposition of the seven notes begins as follows: Because sadja (the Tonic) arises from the combination of nose, throat, chest, palate, tongue, and teeth, it is known as „six-born“.

Catherine Christer Hennix, born 1948 in Stockholm, is an artist, poet, composer, and philosopher with a strong interest in logic, the foundations of mathematics, and formal music theory. Hennix began her musical studies in the 1960s, paying particular attention to the music of Iannis Xenakis and Karlheinz Stockhausen. She pursued studies with Hindustani raga master Pandit Pran Nath in the 1970 and has been a key protagonist in the Manhattan Downtown School along with La Monte Young and Henry Flynt, with whom she shared a number of collaborations that led both to coin the term HESE (“Hallucinogenic Ecstatic Sound Environment”) to aptly describe their scientifically systematic quest for ecstatic states of consciousness.

Amelia Cuni is a singer, composer and performer. She has trained her voice and musical skills in India, according to the tradition of DHRUPAD singing and KATHAK dance. Her present work includes contemporary music and multimedia collaborations with several artists of international repute. She is engaged in the transmission of the knowledge she has acquired from her gurus and teaches Indian singing at the Vicenza Conservatory in Italy. She is based in Berlin.

Werner Durand  performs his own music for saxophones, iranian ney, and self-made wind instruments since the late seventies. He studied with Ariel Kalma in Paris, Indian classical music in India and Berlin (with Kamalesh Maitra) and Iranian ney with Ali Reza Asgharia. He started to build wind instruments out of plexi-glass and PVC in the early 80s, which led to the foundation of THE THIRTEENTH TRIBE in 1990.

Eye jazz: Visual Exhibit by HLG, live music by Aidan Baker

[#] Wed July 13th @ Bei Roy (Ziegrastr.11) : Ohrengala

Preslav Literary School+Man from Uranus +Helge Meyer

Helge Meyer is an experimental electronic musician from Hamburg, Germany. Using a varying array of analogue Synthesizers and Boutique Pedals he tries to articulate his relations to musical subgenres such as Drone, Ambient or Noise.
Since 2009 he presented his improvisations in a number of concerts and came to share a stage with people like Eddie135, Balz Isler, Felix Kubin and Feine Trinkers Bei Pinkels Daheim.

As Preslav Literary School, Adam Thomas makes live tape collages using sounds drawn from an ever-growing archive of self-generated or discovered outsider noise, found sound and spoken word cassettes. A process of transference, overdubbing and live manipulation reworks these source materials into compelling, ambient broadcasts. Adam has released three albums, numerous live CDrs and played at venues and festivals throughout Europe.

Man From Uranus is a one man band from Cambridge, UK. His main influences are Science Fiction movie soundtracks from the sixties as well as the music of Sun Ra and Karlheinz Stockhausen. He has toured all across europe and released his music on several independent labels.

Hennix was affiliated with MIT’s AI Lab in the late 1970s and was later employed as research professor of mathematics at SUNY New Paltz. She currently lives in Berlin. C.C. Hennix began her musical studies in the 1960s by exploring the music of the art music composers Iannis Xenakis and Karlheinz Stockhausen.  Hennix met La Monte Young and Hindustani raga master Pandit Pran Nath at the Nuits du Fondation Maeght festival in 1970 and pursued studies with both men during the 1970s. Hennix also drew inspiration from the Japanese Gagaku music and early vocal, thirteenth-century music of Perotinus and Leoninus. Hennix frequently worked together with the American anti-art philosopher, composer and violinist Henry Flynt.
