We do love tapes. There is millions of reasons. They remember me my early teenage time, when I could only buy tapes (yes, sometimes vinyls, but for sure not cds…). They remember listening to music while driving my 15 years old car-with bass fully blasting. They remember me one thing easy but hard to understand: sometimes we have to create situations they don’t exist. Record labels, venue in your living room, hosting a band from the other side of the world and makes them feeling home. It’s so easy to complain that no one want to listen to you and never record a song.

This is just to say, I adore people that starts a record label! It express deep love for music, community and humanity. And-here’s the magic of tapes-you can do with little, little money.


Our friend Micheal Anisier put on amazing shows since years in Berlin, as Noisekölln, shows with good music, nice people and lot of good discoveries (and fun!)…and two years ago he also started a tape label, Noisekölln tapes that produce a very nice split between Moon Wheel and Ill Winds.

Tonight, Noisekölln is putting out a great evening of gigs and their next release,  Kynn/Klara Tal split tape, in limited edition of 20!

Noisekölln presents: Aidan Baker + Noveller + Sferics live in Loophole! 15-10-12 by DuChamp

beloved Noisekölln + julie tippex presents:

Noveller + Aidan Baker + Sferics

Mon 15 Oct in Loophole (Boddinstrasse 60 NK) at 21

Noveller is the solo project of Brooklyn-based guitarist and filmmaker Sarah Lipstate. Handling the electric guitar as her muse, Lipstate summons a sonic palette so rich as to challenge the listener to conceive of how it’s housed in a single instrument manipulated by a solitary performer. Lipstate has collaborated with several renowned musicians, including live improvised duo performances with Carla Bozulich (Evangelista, The Geraldine Fibbers), David Wm. Sims (the Jesus Lizard, Scratch Acid), and Lee Ranaldo (Sonic Youth).

Aidan Bakeris a Canadian musician & writer alternately based in Toronto & Berlin. A classically trained multi-instrumentalist, his primary instrument is the electric guitar with which he creates music ranging from experimental/drone to ambient post-rock to contemporary classical. In addition to his solo work, he performs with the groups Nadja, Whisper Room, and B/B/S/. Baker has released numerous albums on such labels as Alien8 Recordings, Beta-lactam Ring Records, Important Records, and Drone Records.

Sferics is Felix-Florian Tödtloff (of Petethepiratesquid, Sun Worship, etc.) on solo electric guitar. Eccentric shredding to a stereo delay, Kraut-influenced improvisation, if you know what you’re doing it’s not experimental!

Wed 10 Oct, problem, two amazing gigs at the same time:

[#] Noisekolln Berlin presents: The Pharmacy live!

At 21 in Loophole, Boddinstrasse 60 NK

The Pharmacy is a psychedelic/indie punk band from New Orleans, Louisiana, consisting of three members: Scott Yoder (guitar, lead vocals), Brendhan Bowers (drums, backing vocals), and Stefan Rubicz (keyboards, backing vocals).” They just released their Album ‘Stoned Alone’ on seayou records!

Ill Winds are what sounds like a drumbox and guitars duo, operating in a strange zone recalling the vibe of the Swamp Room Records scene on the early 1990s.” (The Wire) Their debut was released earlier this year on Noisekölln Tapes.

[#] White Hills + Expo 70 in White Trash Schonhauser Allee 7 Mitte
(but thank god in the keller, not upstairs where people eat onion rings…)
Expo 70  is late night improvisations conceived by Justin Wright. Once a member of a group calling themselves Living Science Foundation from Los Angeles, California. Expo ’70 started with Justin Wright, Paul Kneejie (The Pope, Bipolar Beat, White Suits Brown Boots, The Manifolds, etc.) on bass and effects and Bryan Levine (Bipolar Bear), who both started Kill Shaman records. The result was an expansive array of soundscapes and drones inspired by many early gurus of experimental music from around the world.
 With just the right blend of psychedelia and hypnotic grooves, White Hills weaves in and out of anthemic chants, deep space bleeps and other worldly madness for a mix that proves to be intoxicating. Since the release of the band’s debut CD, listeners have been praising their originality and unique brand of heavy space rock.

Je suis le petit chevalier/Felicia Atkinson live in Berlin! by DuChamp

Noisekölln & New Wedding Avant-Garde


concert and exhibition

doors/opening/stagetime tba soon


Felicia Atkinson‘s work reflects a certain belief in the invisible. Her delicate watercolor paintings and minimal sculptures create a surreal ambience that keeps you holding your breath for a moment and wondering what just happened to you. Same goes for her musical output. As Je Suis Le Petit Chevalier, she creates dreamy soundscapes as dark and mystic as they are blissful and fulfilling. Ambient music at its finest!

Atkinson graduated with honors from Les Beaux Arts de Paris and currently lives between Paris and Brussels. She also co-runs the progressive publishing company Shelter Press.

Her work has been exhibited/performed extensively including New York, Los Angeles, Hiroshima, Paris, Cologne, Copenhagen and Antwerp. She released records and tapes on renowned labels such as Aguirre, Digitalis and La Station Radar, with two current releases A GUIDE TO THE SUN (sicsic tapes) and A TRANSPARENT COMET (Cooper Cult).

On this occasion, Atkinson will present selected works from the two residencies she held this summer at Mustarinda (Kainuu, Finland) and Tokonoma (Kassel, Germany).


also performing

Berlin-based artist Malte Cornelius Jantzen creates disturbingly amazing dark ambient/drone music under the cryptic name S ND Y P RL RS. Umor Rex just released his new lp REX which has been praised as “favourite debut album of the year” by Paul Simpson of Foxy Digitalis, and described as “an arresting experience that is as affecting as watching a powerful film” by Don Simon of Bad Sounds Magazine – to quote a few.

This time though, he will perform the 40-minute sound piece DARK MATTER. Originally created as a two-part installation accompanied by abstract b/w photographs, it was published as a book+cdr by Colpa Press San Francisco earlier this summer. Layers and layers and layers of low frequencies and manipulated field recordings. Brilliant!

Expo70+Ancient Ocean+DuChamp live! Berlin 130912 by DuChamp


Expo70 + Ancient Ocean + DuChamp

live in Berlin, The Zone Reuterstrasse 95 NK

13 Sept 2012, doors 8.30 pm

Expo ‘70 is the main driving improvisational essence of Justin Wright. Having started the project in Los Angeles in 2003, Wright has pushed his project to new levels, releasing a number of albums as cdr’s and 2 full-length albums. Expo ‘70’s first album “Animism”, which debuted in 2007 on Kill Shaman, is an eclectic mix of krautrock, ambient drone, space exploration and minimal compositions. Comparisons range from Brian Eno, Ash Ra Tempel, A.R. & Machines, SunnO))) and Earth, but not directly sounding like any of those artists in their entirety.

Ancient Ocean is the solo project of Brooklyn by way of Nashville guitar explorer, John Bohannon. — Hailing from the American South, he has honed a unique style of blissed-out ambient/drone meets americana-rooted psychedelia that have evoked comparisons to Kawabata Makoto’s solo works, Eno/Fripp, Robin Guthrie, and more.
Having released titles on Expo 70’s Sonic Meditations, Woodsmans’ Fire Talk, Rubber City Noise, Kimberly Dawn, and more. He has shared the stage with a diverse crowd including Tony Conrad, Tom Carter, Jeff the Brotherhood, CAVE, Danava, Lower Dens, Prince Rama, and played festivals such as SXSW, CMJ, and Sonic Circuits.

DuChamp is an Italian scientist, musician, curator based in Berlin. A true pedal junkie, she make drones using accordion, bass guitar, baritone guitar, keyboard and voice. Her attempt is re-creating the sense of bliss of the hair dryer sound that she used to hear when she was a child. She performed several time in Berlin, and in Italy, Turkey and Poland.

No Fear of Pop and Noisekölln presents: Sean Nicholas Savage / Ensemble Economique /Fausto Maijstral live at Raum 19.07.12 by DuChamp

Noisekölln and are teaming up again for a wonderful night at the Raum sanctuary. This is the first Berlin show for our “favorite Canadian weirdo” (nfop) Sean Nicholas Savage!


Sean Nicholas Savage is probably the best thing that happened to music this year. Smokey Las Vegas lounge P!O!P!, dirty disco, weird-folk, neo-R&B thrashers, bubbling 80s heartsongs, smooth 70s AM pop, basement lonertude, campfire balladry, dreamy soft-psych, blue-eyed reggae, Caribbean-tinged synth pop and, most importantly, hit-making.



“I’m in a perpetual personal transitional period and my music moves along accordingly. I let the vibes take me, this way and that, like the mist, the fog, the gentle ghost, floating aimless on the beach, full of everything and nothing, at once, letting the early morning sun blast me into a million pieces of ecstatic white light, pure, fragmented, transcendent.”



Fausto Maijstral is the Berlin based duo of DuChamp (IT) and Will Gresson (NZ). Together they perform dense, musique concrete/drone pieces that explore memories and lived experience through heavily processed instruments and field recordings. They have performed with Concern (US), Family Battle Snake (GR), Preslav Literary School (UK), BeMyDelay (IT), Rella the Woodcutter (IT), Drekka (US), Canid (US), Sun Worship (DE) and Nadja (CAN) among others, and recently performed in Istanbul.
