Mi, 09. November 2016, 21.00 Uhr, Projektraum: RYU HANKIL / MATIJA SCHELLANDER / NOID TRIO (KOR/AT)

Korean typewriter meets Austrian acoustic noises – music, non music experiment

Ryu Hankil (KOR) (typewriter), Matija Schellander (AT) (contrabass, synths), Noid (AT) (violoncello, jing-hu)

In 2013, Noid and Matija Schellander travelled from Vienna to East Asia to meet up with Ryu Hankil and other musicians from Japan, Hong Kong, China, South Korea and Europe. Carrying compositions, sound art pieces and workshop preparations in their luggage to be tested by changing social and artistic settings, by everyday tour life and to be used as starting points for debates in various forms.

The first CD - “Tokyo Office” was recorded in the Ftarri shop in Tokyo, an intimate setting, a perfect concert situation for close, concentrated listening. The result is a 44-minute set of unmusical musicality with sounds of typewriter, drums, double bass, cello, jing-hu and victorian synthesizer.

The second CD - "Field Report" - is the travelogue of one month of concerts, field recordings, workshops, dinners, getting lost, missing planes, stretched and contracted gut strings in the temperature and humidity extremes from Okinawa to Beijing, collaborating with locals and other traveling musicians, exposing sometimes strict concepts to confusing listening situations from Seoul rooftops to Osaka market stands to Hong Kong industrial buildings. Snippets and cuts composed in chronological order to an immersive flow of changing spaces and societies, on the turning point between being in and out.

"WhatIfVincentWasAnExtrovert" ist eine Ausstellung zum Thema Intro- und Extraversion.

Die ausgestellten Werke, sind Ergebnisse einer künstlerischen Auseinandersetzung mit diesen Phänomenen. Wie lassen sich Intro- und Extraversion darstellen? Wie sieht ein introvertiertes Bild aus? Oder eine extravertierte Skulptur? Ist es möglich Kunst mit diesen Begriffen zu beschreiben?

Mit solchen Fragen haben sich die sieben ausstellenden Künstler und Künstlerinnen beschäftigt.

Die vielfältige Ausstellung beinhaltet Bilder, Installationen und Videokunst.

Mo, 28. November 2016, 21.00 Uhr, Projektraum: KAUFMANN / GRATKOWSKI / DE JOODE

cutting edge improvisation, textural juxtapositions, jazz unpredictability

Achim Kaufmann (piano), Frank Gratkowski (clarinets, alto saxophone),
Wilbert de Joode (double bass)

In early 2002, Achim Kaufmann, Frank Gratkowski and Wilbert de Joode first got together as a trio at a small venue in Amsterdam. 
Since then, the three musicians have been touring and performing internationally on a regular basis, while constantly developing, deepening and enriching their musical rapport now documented on five CDs so far: “kwast “on Konnex; “unearth” on nuscope; “palaë” and “oblengths” on Leo Records; and “geäder” on gligg records. The trio’s music has been completely improvised from the outset, created in the moment. There have never been any rehearsals prior to concerts, premeditated structures or concepts – a fact that frequently flummoxes listeners, critics or even fellow musicians, as the three often manage to evoke the impression that their music could indeed be adhering to compositional presets. They combine the transparency of early 21st century chamber music – silence, the moving into and out of noise regions, textural juxtapositions, the relics of almost tonal harmony surging up then evaporating just as quickly– with the energy, the rhythmic momentum and unpredictability of jazz and other rhythmically more aggressive music.

BASIC HOUSE (UK): Stephen Bishop (electronics):  "Juxtaposing arresting material that doesn’t seem like it could be made to work, Bishop bends and edits parts together with care that belies their aggression. The results feel very much alive; primal, but with the beginnings of emotional understanding. It’s a brilliant experience." (Fact Magazine)

WANDA GROUP (UK): Louis Johnstone (electronics): "[Wanda Group's] tracks are complex, intimate structures: webs of samples stripped of their original setting, closely examined, then messily smeared and reapplied into radically new shapes. The overall approach and final appearance is closer to papier-mache than any traditional style of production. Jar Moff seems a kindred spirit of sorts - and indeed they share a connection through Matthewdavid's LA-based Leaving Records, with Johnstone having previously released a more hip-hop orientated spate of work on the label as Dem Hunger. Both have worked visually, primarily through collage, and both share musical techniques that extend those approaches into a musical medium." (The Quietus)

CREMATION LILY (UK): Z. Zsigo (electronics): CREMATION LILY is the project of UK based Z. Zsigo. For the past 5 years Zsigo has been consistently working under most people’s radars with his distinctly personal take on power electronics, developing a modest cult following and a respectable catalog of releases through his Strange Rules label. In 2012 the project was brought to the attention of Steve Underwood from Harbinger Sound who subsequently released the ‘Fertility Servent’ 7” and the project began to gather a more visible live presence thanks to gigs with the likes of Consumer Electronics, Con-Dom, Natural Assembly and on the east coast of America too with Alberich and Âmes Sanglantes.
