Electronics + gamelan live at Gelegenheiten 18-10-12 ! by DuChamp

Edberg/Erlandsson/Lisinski are exploring ways of blurring the boundaries between composition and improvisation.

Edberg/Erlandsson/Lisinski was formed in 2010 at the Royal College of Music in Stockholm where Isak Edberg, Mats Erlandsson and Victor Lisinski studied composition together. The group is exploring ways of blurring the boundaries between composition and improvisation. Edberg/Erlandsson/Lisinski are constantly developing new material and new software solutions to find ways of incorporating live-electronics and gamelan instruments. For example with synthesis based on the harmonics of the instruments and by live-processing the instruments.

Be My Delay and Rella the Woodcutter live in Berlin! by DuChamp

La gioiosa macchina da guerra, Occultofest, Occulto magazine and Boring Machine are very proud to present:

RELLA THE WOODCUTTER

BE MY DELAY

two amazing, dreamy psychedelic live act from Italy, both issued on Boring Machine…live this week end in Berlin!

Rella The Woodcutter, is an Italian musician and songwriter. He has been associated with the underground ensemble The Rotten Wine Company for many years and released many albums and EPs on a variety of labels exploring different styles, some focused on traditional songcraft, others more experimental, based on a variety of subgenera as drone, free-rock and folk music, as the CD trilogy “Desire, Death and Rebirth/Ode to Makarashyiu/Excerpt from the Blue Bible”.  He is also part of Eternal Zio, psych-drone project with Roberto Maggioni, Valla and Maurizio Abate, the latest known for his collaborations with Jooklo Duo and releases from Troglosound Records.
A fully devotion and understanding of the song dynamics makes Rella one of the most interesting musicians to continue the tradition that goes from psychedelic folk to blues to more experimental territories.  Rella’s singing is rich, intense and perfumed, sometimes plunged into deep trance. Instruments and voice which rise together in a psichedelic unison building from country-like openings or dissolving from a noisy cluster into a static chord strumming.

BeMyDelay is the solo project of Marcella Riccardi (Blake/e/e/e, Franklin Delano, Massimo Volume), singer and guitarist. Her interest in archaic blues and adventurous music is the ground for building a song collection which tastes of experimental blues, vocali drones, acoustic pareidolia.
BeMyDelay takes the listener to a soft voyage, letting the mind flow gently, a cosmic singalong where melodies come and go circularly, immersed in a muffled and ethereal atmosphere. Voice is used as an instrument, following the guitar loops and delays. The new album, entitled “ToTheOtherSideΔ” is based around manipulation of two loop stations, a couple of old wha-wha tibetan bells and some percussions, which togheter with the voice create circular vortex where the mind can loose herself into thousand echoes floating inside the songs. Marcella Riccardi aka BeMyDelay has played and sung with: Blake/e/e/e, Franklin Delano and Massimo Volume. With Franklin Delano she recorded three albums, of which “Like a smoking gun in front of me” (2004, mixed in Chicago by Brian Deck) and “Come Home” (2006, mixed at John McEntire’s Soma Studios and produced by Brian Deck) with the partecipation of musicians like Jim Becker, Ben Massarella, Tim Rutili from Califone, Fred Lomberg-Holm, Nick Broste, Josh Berman and Brian Deck himself. In 2008, with her new band, Blake/e/e/e, she started her collaboration with Vacuum Studio’s Bruno Germano, fine soundmaker and great musician (played with Settlefish among others). Blake/e/e record, “Border Radio”, has been released in US by Freefolk Records and in Europe by Unhip Records. In 2011 she worked again with Bruno Germano to record and mix her new album as BeMyDelay “ToTheOtherSideΔ” which has been mastered by Carl Saff in Chicago. Marcella/BeMyDelay loves to play live and from 2004 until now she played three coast-to-coast tour in US, two european tours and more than one hundred gigs in Italy with her bands or alone.

Upcoming concert, in the land of milk and honey, part two, a sudden crush for the New World. by DuChamp

[#] A sudden crush for the New World

Sun Oct 16th @ HAU 2 ( Hallesches Ufer 32 Kreuzberg)

LUCKY DRAGONS + SKELETONS

The duo LUCKY DRAGONS, consisting of the multi-instrumentalists Sarah Rara and Luke Fischback , has been performing for more than ten years now, and counts numerous releases. In their artistically arranged, mostly meditatively floating, and then again percussion-accentuated soundscapes they blend electronica, folk and ambient music, familiar sounds from everyday life and “exotically” coded sounds of diverse ethnic origin to become a new and highly reflected form of world music. During their concerts the LA-based group puts an end to the conventional division of stage and public, integrating the concertgoers into the plot. Likewise the trio SKELETONS conveys a similar versatility of artistic influences. It was founded ten years ago by the musician and film director Matt Mehlan. On album releases like “Money” or “Lucas” their artistic range stretches from pop in the style of Prince via free jazz and Afro-funk up to uncommon interpretations of artrock, folk and R&B. On their latest work “People” the band from New York translates their musical voyages around the world into incredibly precise, flowing and emphatic songs. Never before have the Skeletons sounded so compelling as on this album, which was co-produced by the well-known sound expert Rusty Santos.

Tue Oct 18th @ Loophole (Boddinstrasse 60, Neukölln) …main bands are from France, but from Not Not Fun !! Event organized by Noisekölln

High Wolf (FR, Not Not Fun) //

High Wolf makes music like no one else on the planet. He claims to be from the Amazon and all his activities are shrouded in mystery. Sometimes he is just one man, other times High Wolf is a duo. In either case he conjours mystic tropical clouds of repetition and build that, while complex, are never hard to listen to. The music seems to tap into a primal frequency and demands listeners to dance. A contemporary of James Ferraro (of The Skaters), Oneohtrix Point Never and Ducktails.” France’s High Wolf previous released records on Not Not Fun, Bathetic and his own Winged Sun imprint.

Blue Stork (DE) //

Droning Vocals, Distorted Preset Beats and Maracas is the dreamy stream of sounds by Blue Stork. First a straight ambient/drone solo-project called A Blue Stork Is Born By A Moonlight Tower, he decided to keep his drone aesthetics and put them together with a nostalgic tropicana feeling in which the organic Maracas played by his girlfriend and personal shaman, bring the right ethno-spiritual feeling to get high between stars and lovely creatures from the past.

Indias Indios (Chile)//

Indias indios is the name that Benjamin Altermatt gave to a collection of drawings and found images during the summer of 2006, an archive mostly related to landscapes and their people, as well as abstract forms, vertical miasma and so on. During the years the archive has expanded itself to sound collections, as well as to music collaborations with friends. Benjamin.A started to perform as indias indios in the early 2009 around europe. He is based in Berlin, and is currently working on a lo-fi movie and the soundtrack.

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.

Selektive Hören Archiv online by DuChamp

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!
