33594200_405443173308046_7010348794235584512_o.jpg7/12 Ø – RASHAD BECKER (PAN, de) / IRON SIGHT (dk) / SUPERSKIN / i-h / SCHIRIN / INOU KI ENDO DJ-SET (SI91/venster99)

Iron Sight is the work of Danish artist Isak Hansen. Hansen is a producer, performer, song writer, and notorious vocalist for The Empire Line. About the upcoming release: “Iron Sight’s music crosses territory between dystopian sci-fi futurism and biblical eschatology, perhaps the same event, the end of the Uroburos’ tail; mechanical percussion hits anchor drones that evoke Albrecht Durer’s vision of The Four Horsemen, bristling synths audibly resemble locust drones descending upon rotting fields, a voice made from barbed wire emerges from a storm of reverb. // Eine evokative Klangszenerie – akustische Entitäten, die miteinander in Kommunikation treten. Rashad Becker schafft es wie wenige neben ihm, musikalische Stücke vorzutragen, in denen synthetische Klangkörper in verbale Interaktion treten. Durch leichte Variationen in der Intonation der Klänge und scheinbar zufällige Zeitlichkeiten entsteht das poetische Narrativ einer fiktiven Gesellschaft. Die Sprache bleibt dabei verschlüsselt, den einzelnen Stimmen vorenthalten.

18f986645d834036c01eff4ead13086d9/11 Ø – S+I=6 Anniversary Part 2 – PHARMAKON (SACRED BONES, us) / KOLLAPS (US) / INOU KI ENDO DJ-SET (SI90/arena)

Margaret Chardiet was born and raised in New York City. As a founding member of the Red Light District collective in Far Rockaway, New York, she has been a figurehead in the underground experimental scene since the age of seventeen. „Bestial Burden“ is a thematically intense album based on a major surgery Chardiet had just before she was set to go on her first European tour. It’s the second Pharmakon LP for Sacred Bones Records, following 2013’s critically acclaimed „Abandon“, and it’s a harrowing collection of deeply personal industrial noise tracks, each one brimming with struggle and weighted with the intensity of Chardiet’s internal conflict. more …

1-Eli-Keszler-800x8006/11 Ø – S+I=6 Anniversary Part 1 – ELI KESZLER (PAN, us) / PAUL GRÜNDORFER / DJ ROVAN (SI89/rhiz)

Eli Keszler is a New York based artist, composer and percussionist. Keszler’s installation s, music and visual work have appeared at Lincoln Center,Victoria & Albert Museum, Barbican-St. Lukes, Walker Art Museum, LAX Art, and Greater New York at MoMa PS1. His work has been featured in Frieze, Bomb Magazine, The New York Times, Wire Magazine. He dropped jaws last year with his unstoppable one-two punch of the ‘Red Horse’ LP on Type and ‘Cold Pin’ on PAN. Admittedly this was the first most listeners had heard from him, but new devotees were quick to fall over each other to grab anything else Keszler had put his name to, so it’s a fan service from PAN that they’ve put together this bumper double CD that collects up all the disparate pieces of the Cold Pin recordings. more..-

EnsembleEconomique_by_JohnScharpen30/10 Ø – ENSEMBLE ECONOMIQUE (DENOVALI, US) / ERIK EMIL ESKILDSEN & MARKUS W. SCHNEIDER & CHRISTOPH GRUBER / DJ JUNG AN TAGEN (SI87/rhiz)

The latest long-player of devotional noir by Humboldt County romantic Brian Pyle aka Ensemble Economique was originally titled Music Saves Lives, in response to the misguided backlash directed at underground artists in the wake of the tragic Ghost Ship fire in Oakland. Since Pyle’s career threads through a decade and a half of Northern California’s independent experimental music community, the blow struck a uniquely deep and personal chord. As a way to process, he began recording at his coastal home studio in Manila, California, channeling inner states of mind, seeking something “more personal and intimate, the idea of love, and shining through.”

PRINTPlakat-Programm12 quadrat02-13/10 UNSAFE+SOUNDS FESTIVAL 2018 »BRUTAL TIMES. POSITIONEN AM ABGRUND« (US5)

Unsafe+Sounds wants to investigate the interrelatedness of the fundamental changes in our environment and aesthetics, and look for apt noises for our disturbed existence. Under the banner of “Brutal Times”, we gather workers from the musical frontiers to find some medication for this pathological time. We believe these are to be found in the poetics of catharsis and physical affection; in neurotic, transgressive, tender, psychoacoustic, and obscure approaches.  feat.

As one half of Pan Sonic, Mika Vainio had a transformative effect on the deconstructed techno that lurks around the fringes of dance and electronic music. Vainio’s influence on ambient and industrial electronic music was somewhat unspoken in his lifetime. He was not a figurehead of a scene, but pretty much all booming palettes of mechanical sound being made today nod in some way to Vainio and his work with Pan Sonic (more…)

Hasegawa has begun his solo unit ASTRO with analog synthesizers in 1993. His playing style is like drifting between the meditation and awakening state with electronics and still he is pursuing it.(more…)

Der 75-jährige englische Slide-Gitarren-Maestro Mike Cooper gilt seit über vier Dekaden als Ikone der »post-everything music«. Cooper dekonstruiert klassisches Songwriting und appropriiert exotisch wirkende, pazifische Sounds in seinem elektronisch verfremdeten Lap-Steel-Gitarrenspiel. Reich an Bildern entwickelt er spiritistische Narrative, die aus einem eklektischen Stilmix gesponnen sind, der von traditionellem Country-Blues bis zu Folk, von freier Improvisation zu abstraktem Ambient reicht.

Der in L.A. stationierte John Wiese ist Musiker, Komponist und Publizist in Personalunion. Bekannt aus der Grindcore-Band Sissy Spacek, hat der Künstler sich in den letzten Jahren fast ausschließlich seiner Solo-Karriere gewidmet. Mittlerweile hat Wiese seinen Fokus von gewaltvollem Noise auf sanfteren, aber nicht weniger intensiven Ambient verlagert. Mit Hilfe akribisch selektierter, elektronischer Cut-Ups, auratischer Voice-Samples und mikrotonalen Vibrationen dringt er in obskure Gefilde vor. Wiese möchte (…)

Caterina Barbieri is an Italian composer now based in Berlin. By means of synthesis, pattern based operations and subtractive counterpoint, her music draws severe geometries in time and space. A focus on minimalism in composition arises from a meditation on primary waveforms and exploration of the polyphonic and polyrhythmic potential of sequencers.  (more…)

Their rhythms and soundscapes of voices, obscure samples and distorted field-recordings build spaces of barren material  (more…)

For the fourth part of their Decompositon Series Kutin | Kindlinger recorded waves which were transmitted through a bulletproof glass pane while it was exposed to major physical impacts. The variations on bullet proof glass are all based on these samples: sonic fragments that document a process of vast physical destruction – arranged to an audiovisual metaphor about the impossibilty of safety.  (more…)

nikaSon_ralfköster-768x90818/1 Ø – NIKA SON (DE) / ROBERT SCHWARZ »DOUBLE NEGATIVE« RELEASE-SHOW / DJ KID RAFFEET -(SI74/RHIZ)

After leaving Germany in early years, moving to England, Nika Son started to visit the art school. Influenced by Musique Concrète and the outer space of electronic music, her compositions are built from manipulated and fragmented fieldrecordings, interweaving with analogue synth lines, knocking radiowaves, rare voice scraps and filtered tape layers. As a DJ (Nikae) she runs two nights at Hamburg’s Golden Pudel Club  (more…)

quehenberger-.jpg12/1 Ø – Philipp Quehenberger / Nachtbote / Superskin / Dj Schirin / Inou Ki Endo / Tristan Bath – (SI73/Venster99)

Philipp Quehenberger was born in Innsbruck in 1977, grew up in Tirol (AUT), Seattle (US) and Newcastle (GB). Lives and works as a freelance musician and composer in Vienna, Austria. His music has existed as a consistent strain amongst the Austrian underground for the last 15 years. His output is a cracking combination of dance floor zeal and deep disco disorientation. A perpetually rotating sphere which blends genres whilst bending the body and mind.  (more…)
