  • [Article 784]03.04.2015: Morihide Sawada (JP) – Christian Schröder (D)

    Morihide Sawada (JP)
    It’s a completely acoustic live performance.  With a non-microphone and non-PA system.

    He wants to perform under minimum electric condition. This creates a “monotone sound trip” with the audience. But he attempts to play music that the audience can get a colorful image of.

    He prefers to play at the floor level near the audience, whenever possible. So the audience can hear detailed expressions. …as well as for considering the border line between himself and others.

    In a typical show, he improvises off of a motif for every part. In a usually unbroken 30 minutes set, he concentrates all his senses on the simple sound of the snare drum.

  • [Article 779]12.05.2015: Helios & Hess (CH) – Sebastian Scherer (D)

    Helios & Hess (CH)
    The new project of Helios & Hess called „Lump“ is about customs and Swiss history. The two traditional terms – Reisläufer / Swiss Mercenaries and Alpsegen / Alp Blessing – are set to music by Mike Reber and Christoph Hess (Strotter Inst.). The two musicians work exclusively with analogue equipment and field-recordings.The listener is taken on a journey to another world of Swiss culture. The compositions by Helios & Hess are based on analog instruments, manipulated turntables, loops, sound-fragments and fieldrecordings. The tracks are lengthy and epic, closer to weird storytelling than boring pop-songs.

    Sebastian Scherer (D)
    Scherer’s compositions oscillate between dub, drone, and 8-bit noise. In KERBEROS, the subversion of vintage computing technology and traditions of bass-music evokes claustrophobic, yet strangely familiar soundscapes between subsonic jitter and intermittent data-bursts. This evolving continuum is interspersed with samples of machinic fluctuations and layers of resonant spaces. Complemented by dub-echoes and deteriorated breakbeat remnants, an unsettling, but ultimately redemptive aesthetic emerges.
