[Article 612]01.11.2014: Trabouliste/Brass Lines (D) – Post Mortem (NL) – StringStrang (NL)

Trabouliste/Brass Lines (D)
Trabouliste lässt mit seinen experimentell orientierten Patches den Geist der frühen elektronischen Musik wiederauferstehen. Es geht ihm weniger darum, das Vorhandene zu imitieren, als neue Klang- bzw. Hörräume zu erforschen und zu schaffen. Neben reinen (vor allen Dingen iOS-basierten) Software-Synthesizern, nutzt er auch zunehmend elektronische Hardware zur Klangerzeugung. Seit Februar 2012 widmet er sich zudem dem Cello-Spiel.

Brass-Lines aka Frank Wilke spielt Trompete, Posaune, Horn und beschäftigt sich auch mit elektronischer Klangerzeugung. Als wichtige musikalische Einflüsse wären zu nennen: Manfred Schoof, Albert Mangelsdorf, Bill Dixon,  Alexander v. Schlippenbach, Tony Oxley, John Cage und Mauricio Kagel. Dementsprechend bewegt sich sein musikalisches Schaffen zwischen Free Jazz, Neuer Musik und experimenteller Musik. Seit 2009 spielt er in der free Jazz Combo freivomhieb und nimmt seit 2012 an internationalen musikalischen Kollaborationen Teil.

Post Mortem und StringStrang (NL)
Post Mortem and StringStrang are two musical projects of Jan Kees Helms. Jan Kees Helms is an artist from The Netherlands and uses photography, video, sounds and performances to tell stories. In the ’80s and ’90s, he was active in the experimental tape and mail-art scene. After that he created a lot of exhibitions in photography. In 2009 he re-starts creating music with several releases of field-recordings.

Post Mortem started in the eighties and ended in the beginning of the nineties. Jan Kees Helms released with this name worldwide many tapes and collaborated with other musicians. In 2010 he re-started Post Mortem and stands for the experiment with sound in the widest sense of the word. The experiment can be done by manipulation of digital sounds found on the world wide web, but also by creating soundscapes and noise by tapes, field-recordings, a dusted guitar, a type-machine or just the human voice.

Post Mortem presents itself live as an intensive performance in which the vulnerable and the powerful parts of sound will be searched and found. The intensity during the performance moves from almost unhearable and minimal sounds tot a harsh wall of sound and will return to subtle soundscapes. The vulnerability is made visual by the cloth which is designed by the American/Dutch artist Sally Pittmann. The dress is transparent and unfinished. Roughness and fragility are important ingredients of the image and sound. During the performance will also a movie been shown which supports the performance and sounds.
Post Mortem -> Info

StringStrang is a project in which a minimal and melancholic atmosphere is built. The fascination to return reality to simplicity and the challenge to slow down the rhythm of the hectic life are the principles within StringStrang is working. The time is delayed by images and sounds. The sound is slowly created by repetitive layers. Concrete sounds, created by field-recordings, mingle into the guitar drones and the images will change peacefully through minimal movements. Harmony and dissonance alternate, warm sounds are interrupted by disturbing sounds. A movie is the score for the improvisation during a concert. There are some musical structures that will be used as a starting point, but each performance will be unique, because it will be dependent of space, time and mood. Both performances will be deal about freedom, freedom in movement and freedom of speech.
