PROGRAMME 2019

SDIM2950.jpg18/10 Ø – ▲RIAN TREANOR (PLANET MU / UK) ▲ ROJIN SHARAFI RELEASE-SHOW »Urns waiting to be fed« (IR/A)MAKART ▲ DJS JUNG AN TAGEN ▲ SCHIRIN ▲ INOU KI ENDO –  (SI104/FLUC)

Rian Treanor reimagines the intersection of club culture, experimental art and computer music, presenting an insightful and compelling musical world of fractured and interlocking components. Having left a vivid impression in 2015 with his debut 12″ ‘A Rational Tangle’ and his scintillating 2nd EP ‘Pattern Damage’ on The Death of Rave, in 2018 the Warp sub-label Arcola relaunched with his bold Contraposition 12″ single. His hexagonal and half-stepping bleep-bass mutations rewire hyper-chromatic UK garage and pointillist footwork, with 10/10 and album of the month reviews in MixMag, and he is receiving plays by Björk in her current DJ sets. At an unrelenting 150bpm his recent guest mix for Mumdance’s RinseFM show alongside RP Boo established Treanor as both a disruptive and essential new voice in British underground club music. “One of the UK’s most exciting new producers” – FACT (more)

67945804_1154604444726744_5239393663376687104_n12/10 Ø – ▲DINO SPILUTTINI RELEASE-SHOW »Heaven« (Editions Mego)▲ MO NAHOLD RELEASE-SHOW Mo Nahold: »Tremors« (Ventil Rec) – (SI103/DASWERK)

Heaven is a work of contemporary church music. Centrally occupied with the subject of death, its conceptualisation was catalysed by Spiluttini’s discovering his mother’s preparations both for her own death and for his. He arrived at her home in 2015 to be led into the local church and shown the two adjacent places she had reserved for their urns. The tracks on Heaven together consist of an analogously personal and anticipatory negotiation with death. Partly derived from organ recordings made in the same church, the album frequently enlists Arvo Pärt’s compositional method of tintinnabuli. Aside from the thematic logic of its sacred associations, the method suits Spiluttini’s tendency, in spite of heavy and dynamic passages, to minimise tonal complexity. His characteristic uses of gnashing bass, restlessly irregular pacing and serrated distortion return. This time, they combine with pads, harps, fluttering organs and swooping choirs.(more)

61170314_1176584389210709_4483074841951338496_n10/10 Ø – ▲E-SAGGILA (NORTHERN ELECTRONICS /CDN) ▲DJWARZONE (NATURAL SCIENCES)BRAUN.AAR (A) – (SI102/FLUC)

E-Saggila covertly binds industrial music’s harshest pole of rhythmic intensity with club-wise shock tactics to create a dark and emotive soundtrack to snap us out of our digital daze. As the co-founder of the cult label Summer Isle, E-Saggila has incubated her productions and performances surrounded by the noisy experimentation that the label is best known for—and it’s here that we can locate her influences. Esplendor Geométrico and Muslim Gauze give a hint, but there’s more to it. Locked into the idea that music’s most extreme and abstract forms have everything to do with the development of dance music culture, E-Saggila carries the DIY ethos that underpins it all right into techno’s contemporary core.

Visceral post-Industrialists Kollaps are set to embark on an extensive European tour later this month, heralding the release early next year of the follow-up of last year’s Siblings Lovers LP. The Melbourne based trio of Damian Coward, Robin W. Marsh and Wade Black will be appearing in many cities for the first time, where audiences will be treated to an onslaught of sonic textures so abrasive that the sound will become tactile enough to remove several layers of skin.

Jasmine Guffond ist eine Klangkünstlerin und Komponistin, die an der Schnittstelle von Gesellschaft, Politik und Technologien operiert. In ihren elektronischen Klangstücken reflektiert sie Überwachungstechnologien. Dafür sonifiziert sie Gesichtserkennungsalgorithmen, Daten globaler Netzwerke und Internet-Tracking-Cookies und verarbeitet Forschungsergebnisse in unheimlichen akustischen Szenerien. Jakob Schauer arbeitet im Kontext von bildender Kunst und Sound Art und ist als elektroakustischer Musiker aktiv. Durch Frequenzschichtungen und Klangverdichtungen erzeugt er Flächen in variierenden Stimmungen, welche die Aktivität und Passivität des Zuhörens ausloten. (more)

0-1207/06 Ø – ▲SCHTUM RELEASE-SHOW »FEED« ▲VIA APP (BANK REC. / US) ▲TECHNOLAND feat. ▲ DJ WARZONE ▲ INOU KI ENDO ▲ FAILIX (SI99/RHIZ)

Dylan Scheer aka Via App is a key member of Brooklyn’s emerging electronic music underground. She has done this in a short period of time and is creating a sound all her own while doing so. Her style is hard, disruptive, and her approach to production intends to test ordinary listeners and DJs alike. schtum, the duo of Manu Mayr and Robert Pockfuß, distills the spectrum of oscillatory rhythm, noise, and microtonality into an aesthetic lying somewhere between the organic and the machine. Processes are set in motion by the instruments, only to be stressed and superimposed, decontextualized and deformed, until – like an exhausted voice – they break. In this electroacoustic world of feedback loops, sub-bass interference and twittering noise, an outline emerges: the shape of the field upon which schtum plays.  (more)

Drew McDowall, a key force behind legendary bands Coil and Psychic TV, will play on the formidable spatial soundsystem following a stellar appearance at CTM 2018. His impact on Coil’s sound was immediate and significant – the releases transformed from their previous avant-pop signature to a more complex and methodic electronic imprint accompanied by even more abstruse subject matter and abstract formulations. He was instrumental in the creation of Time Machines, one of the most influential drone works of the last 20 years. McDowall’s signature ambient ebb and flow engages with a contemporary world that emerges from the disintegration of various mental, physical, and emotional terrain. Recently, he released The Third Helix on Dais Records, a record that unravels the DNA of hallucination. (more)

_MG_007705/04 Ø – ▲PHEW (AUNT SALLY /JP) ▲ SCANS (JOHNNY HAWAII + ANT CAR) ▲ HEAP DJ-SET  (SI98/RHIZ)

Phew’s career began in the 70s when she fronted Osaka punk group Aunt Sally (who released one album on Vanity Records in 1979). Ryuichi Sakamoto produced Phew’s first solo release in 1980 and in 1981 Pass Records issued her debut LP, a classic featuring Holger Czukay and Jaki Liebezeit of Can, and Conny Plank. She’s since collaborated with members of DAF, Neubauten, Boredoms and more. Pitchfork calls her a “Japanese underground legend”. The albums she created over the last 40 years have gone from record store rarities to being included on many “best of” lists. She worked solo with musicians such as Ryuichi Sakamoto, Holger Czukay, Jaki Liebezeit, Chrislo Haas, Alexander Hacke, Yuji Takahashi, Seiichi Yamamoto, Hiroyuki Nagashima, Otomo Yoshihide in the group Novo Tono, Dieter Moebius on Phew’s Project Undark Radium Girls project, Jim O’Rourke and Ana da Silva.

A key figure in Montréal’s experimental community, musician and visual artist Jesse Osborne-Lanthier molds disconcerting sonic worlds by combining modular synthesizers with digital processing tools, while also drawing from a rich arsenal of field recordings, classical instruments, tape reels and recording hardware. Turned on to the endless potential of otherworldly, contrasting signals, Osborne-Lanthier’s conceptual practice conjures up slightly menacing realms that operate outside the bounds of musicality. Operating under many pseudonyms, Osborne-Lanthier thrives on collaborating with a like-minded entourage – artists such as Hobo Cubes, Bernardino Femminielli and Marie Davidson. (more)

Frenzied improvisers who tap the ecstasy and explosiveness of their onstage chemistry while capturing their ideas and enthusiasms in vivid, glorious detail. “As the duo CILANTRO we play improvised (or instant composed;) music. The basic concept and idea is our set-up and the musically output is what one can call post-noise. Feedback-recorders, distorted bass guitar, audible video-signals, selfbuilt little synthies, circuit bent tuna can. We like instable systems. Music without parfume.” (more)

Beyond the personal consciousness, there is the familial consciousness, above the familial there is the cultural, above the cultural, the historical, and so on ascending into the vast cosmical or spiritual consciousness. The conception of Divine Weight derives from Zhang’s “failed” attempts of saxophone compositions and recordings accumulated over the last 3 years, from there it became the actual stem tracks that were heavily digitally disfigured until it no longer resembled the sound of saxophones. Like dreams, visions often come to us without us having the capability to measure or understand fully what they mean. Similar to Alejandro Jodorowsky’s Psychomagic, dreams and visions take on the roles of witnesses inside the uncharted labyrinth of the personal sub-conscious. To witness, is to believe. To believe, is to project a certain reality onto the external world. The projection then, has nothing to do with reality. Perhaps it’s where dreams go, after it dies. (more)
