Wed 17 Oct @ Knockenbox SUN WORSHIP + FAUSTO MAIJSTRAL by DuChamp

Wed Oct 17, @ Knockenbox Boxhagener str. F´hain Blitzgigs presents:

SUN WORSHIP (best metal ever existed, DE) + FAUSTO MAIJSTRAL (drone, NZ/IT)

Sun Worship channels almost distant howls from the void since early 2010, thriving in and from the netherworld between nothing and everything. Nihilism as an irrational and desperate urge to exist and create, the celebration of contradictions in general and particular, post fucking black fucking metal, et al. Played with a bunch of different bands the last few months.

Fausto Maijstral is the duo of DuChamp (IT) and Will Gresson (NZ). Together they perform dense, long musique concrete/drone pieces that explore memories and lived experience through heavily processed instruments and field recordings.  They performed with Concern (US), Family Battle Snake (GR), Steindor Kristinsson (IS), Preslav Literary School (UK), Iku Sakan (JP), Bemydelay (IT) and Rella the Woodcutter (IT), Drekka and Canid (US), Krapoola (ES), Nadja (CA). They have performed several time in Berlin and recently in Istanbul.

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 

15.09     OPENING: w/Diamond Terrifier & TroubleSean Nicholas SavageAtomicTitCorporation

16.09     HERMETISTASIS: curated by Jimmy Trash & Professor Mugglestone

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.

KRAPOOLA (Impro, Sound Exploration/ES)
Krapoola is a tamer who explores the ways that materials interact when the entropicio happens. Noise is a part of this, not a reality by itself. Along this learning path a memory has formed itself and oblivion has appeared. The mutation has just begun. Regression? For his performances Krapoola’s self-built devices are the usual. They mostly proceed from detritus and go towards the secret. One of his tricks is to spin three records at the same time – one at normal speed, another one twice as fast or slow and one gets played backwards.

Nap Concert in Berlin, Wed 22-06 in Loophole by DuChamp

Nap Concert on Wed June 22 @ 21 in Loophole Berlin….

Bring your pillows! Long night of lethargic drones…(I´m serious! it will be a sleeping concert, so whatever you need to sleep!)

Fausto Maijstral (drone, saddest music in the world, IT/NZ/DE)

Fausto Maijstral is a multi-faceted band formed around the core duo of Italian scientist and musician DuChamp and sound artist Will Gresson of New Zealand. The band explores the middle ground between their mutual interest in experimental music, improvisation and the practice of field recording, performing largely improvised soundscapes with various instruments heavily processed during live performances. Individually both Rossella and Gresson have been involved in various solo and group performances, as well as contributing to several festivals in Berlin.

Olivier Newton Johnny (minimalism, NZ/FR/DE)

… sometimes you will be screaming your heart out , sometimes you are softly whispering – often you are delicately accompanied by our electric guitar / viola noise. other times your voice is actually supporting us, and quite constantly the three of us are battling each other – no one gives way and yet everyone shares a presence. We are Olivier Newton Johnny.
Olivier di Placido: electric guitar
Harmony Molina: voice
Johnny Chang: violin

Zabo Chabilant (drone, FR)

Zabo Chabiland is a French Berlin based artist working with various mediums.
She has never been trained as a musician and uses it as an advantage to create timeless soundscapes. Her favorite instrument is the
piano board she plays with electronic massagers. Zabo will perform “Piano Coude en C Majeur” a musical composition generated by the action of falling asleep on a keyboard. She is currently doing a Sleepy Tour….
