"ALL THEM TAKES" PUTS MARIE & JONAS KOCHER

Max Usata: Vocals, Drums, Synth
Sirup Gagavi: Guitar
Beni 06: Farfisa Organ
Igor Stepniewski: Electric Bass, Flute
Tobi Schramm: Drums
Antoine Etter/Gaspard Pahud: Sound

The band’s sonic identity is pushed to its limits and kneaded, only to be catapulted out into the urgency of the moment.

A collision of sounds, riffs, grooves, spoken words and hypnotic repetitions that lead to the absurd. A chaos in resolute rock energy and a devilishly precise clockwork at the same time.

INFECTED BURST / HAZARD CRUMBS

INFECTED BURST

SPASTIK BIT, IMPROVISED NOISE, HOMEMADE ELECTRONICS

M. Gabola/ T. DeTesta/ E. Bernè

Infected Burst might, at first assumption, sound to some like something gross, puss, a pimple, a mess maybe. But- here’s what I think: The “burst” is the expression itself, like socially conscious free jazz, the music BURSTS forth through the pain/complication (INFECTION) existing inside the artist. So— indeed, the Infected Burst is a very good metaphor for that sort of process of creative expression! (Phillip B. Klingler aka PBK from PBKsound Radio, USA)

HAZARD CRUMBS

EXPERIMENTAL RAP, SPOKEN WORD, POETRY

Abstral Compost & Pascal Lopinat

Born from the meeting between the drummer/multi-instrumentalist Pascal Lopinat and the rapper/poet AbSTRAL Compost; They bravery exploring the various possible imbrications between the voice, mainly scandalized, and the black, industrial rhythms which scatter their new disc. The two artists unveil here, in the most sincere form, this broken attraction for the strange, so singular, which unites them. The result is a rap tinged with love and cracklings, an incantatory poetry, sometimes voluntarily hazardous, and experimental productions with rough, surprising roughness; mirror of their respective particularly varied influences.

DIE ANGEL (Schneider TM & Ilpo Väisänen) / VARUNA

DIE ANGEL

SCHNEIDER TM & ILPO VÄISÄNEN

die ANGEL (or just ANGEL in the early days), the duo project of Ilpo Väisänen (ex-Pan sonic) & Dirk Dresselhaus aka Schneider TM, was born in 1999 during a joint European tour of Pan sonic and Schneider TM with the aim to use electronics, string instruments and effect loops to develop a sonic world that goes beyond fixed structures and clearly defined genres.

Coming from different musical backgrounds proved quite an advantage for the duo as it meant that they had to find their particular modus operandi: communication through noise and action, instant composition, spirit.

Over the course of over 2 decades now, die ANGEL crafted a catalogue of 10 albums released on labels like Editions Mego or Karlrecords that were recordings of either the core duo or featured like-minded artists like cellist Hildur Gudnadottir, Oren Ambarchi, Lucio Capece or BJ Nilsen and played numerous international headlining shows and festivals.

die ANGEL delve deep into the microcosms of tones, shaping nuanced layers of abstract sound that integrate elements of Musique Concrète, Minimal Music, Industrial, Noise, Blues and Psychedelia, and yet bear the unmistakable die ANGEL signature.

P/O MASSACRE / YAO BOBBY & SIMON GRAB

P/O MASSACRE

DOOMDRONE, NOISE, METAL INFUSED WALL OF SOUND

Anton Obrazeena: Guitar, Electronics
Anton Ponomarev: Sax, Electronics

There have been bands called Massacre before, but this one is unlike any that preceded them. They are a duo: saxophonist Anton Ponomarev and guitarist Anton Obrazeena, and this is their debut album. Obrazeena’s guitar was plugged into two guitar stacks and one bass stack, the better to achieve floor-shaking rumble. Ponomarev, who also plays electronics, sent his saxophone through two separate chains of electronics encompassing pedals, Moog processors, spring reverb, octavers, drone effects and more, so that it would travel independently through the left and right channels of the PA system. There was also a clear channel documenting just the saxophone, with no effects.
The resulting music is an unearthly ever-shifting roar, sometimes identifiable as the product of guitar and saxophone but just as often not. Obrazeena’s guitar frequently starts out as an almost country-tinged drone, not unlike Earth’s Hex; Or Printing In The Infernal Method before turning into a downtuned wall of thick, syrupy distortion you can almost touch. Ponomarev’s sax screeches and bellows, and his electronics create a dense pulse, with needle-sharp sine waves piercing the waves of static and reverberant atmospheres. The absence of rhythm allows them to concentrate on hearing and reacting to each other without worrying about time, creating an immersive world of pure sound that fills the room as easily as it empties out your skull.

YAO BOBBY & SIMON GRAB

DIRTY BASS PRESSURE, RAP, NO IMPUT MIXER NOISE, BRISTOL BASS FROM TOGO AND CH

Yao Bobby & Simon Grab will be presenting their upcoming album WUM, which will be released on LavaLava Records, Bristol UK. Their show is a very raw and improvised form of live experimental hiphop – ‘Freeform Rap and Noise’.
A lot of dirty bass, politically charged rap, loud.

The togolese Rapper and political activist Yao Bobby collaborates with swiss noisemaker Simon Grab. An intense soundbattle between energetic rhymes fired into a dark soundworld of raw electronic bass pulsations with a dubby punk attitude, produced on analog feedback electronics. Their EP «Diamonds» has been well received in the scene and in the media, including an award for the Best Music Video in Ann Arbor USA, a nomination at Solothurner Filmtage in Switzerland, and has – as their newest 7″ single «Black Revolution» – been sold out quickly.

RE–GHOSTER + NATE WOOLEY & FRITZ WELCH

IMPROVISATION, PERFORMANCE, SOUND RECONTEXTUALISATION

Nate Wooley: Trumpet
Fritz Welch: Drums, Voice
Valerio Tricoli: Tape
Nicolas Field: Drums, Electronics
Thomas Florin: Piano

Re–Ghoster is a thrilling trio comprised of pianist Thomas Florin, drummer Nicolas Field and the fascinating Revox monster Valerio Tricoli. The acoustic instruments are fed to tape, magnetised, digested, re-eaten, reworked and regurgitated again by the machine. The result are ghostly bursts & roars emerging from nothingness. Roaring stridences, shrieks chirps & shrills explode all in tension with each other. For the release tour of the new record “Or not all”, Re–Ghoster invites trumpeter Nate Wooley (USA) and percussionist-vocalist Fritz Welch (UK-USA), two essential pillars of the experimental/ improvised music scene, for a quest – as mystical as it is turbulent – into the depths of sound.This is a re-listening of the acoustic sounds, partly sieved by the electronics in a hybrid spatial continuum. A frictional, nervous symbiosis, full of jolts, but also abrasive and/or restrained fluidity. A very exciting interaction at all times, looking towards possible futures filled with low masses, giving birth to dense sonic textures shifting and/or overplayed in a ghostly union.

李星 LI XING / MÈRYLL AMPE

李星 LI XING

CHINESE GUITAR NOISE IMPROVISATION

Li Xing was born in Hohhot, Inner Mongolia in 1987, and started learning guitar at the age of 12. He has drawn the sound languages such as Psychedelic Rock, Prog/Avant Rock, Free Jazz, Serial Music and Sound Art from different environments to form his own musical vocabulary. Enlightened by the relationship between Yin and Yang, his works strive to concern the relationship between the voice and the contemporary Chinese society, while utilizing techniques ranging from noise, environment, sequence, to events and incidents in support of the deliverance.

In recent years, Li Xing working on new thinking of composing “String & Wind”, the sound aesthetics that “String & Wind”wants to explore is to escape from the characteristics of the instrumental music and starts to talk in a more objective, rational and restrained way, and visualizing a musical surface in logic, geometry, strokes, or law……

MÈRYLL AMPE

ELECTRONIC, FULLBLAST, BASSSCULPTOR

As sound and visual artist, she develops artworks through field recordings, electronic. She establishes links between her musical practice and her visual practice, using techniques directly linked to sculpture: to cut in the mass, to model, to chisel by using digital tools of sound processing and analogic tools, allowing to generate echo, tensions, breaks and punctuations. By this research, this prehension, she composes orchestrated and spatial tones. She invests places for which she composes soundtracks in situ. When it comes to her performance practice, she conceives improvisation as a notion of “plan-sequence”, revealing the immersive composition of space.

Inga Huld Hákonardóttir & Yann Leguay: Again The Sunset

Inga Huld Hákonardóttir and Yann Leguay play on raw materials and extract the music that the chosen materials propose. A beating gesture causing a throbbing rhythm. The effort carries spoken word out of it’s habitual state into a sonic limbo where a human howl could be located somewhere between wolf and dog.

Manuel Pessoa De Lima

Manuel Pessoa De Lima (Electronics, Piano)

Manuel Pessoa de Lima arrived in Berlin from Brazil with a sole plan in mind: to break out in the experimental music scene. It didn’t take too long for him to realize he wouldn’t be able to make a living from his art. Luckily, he was hired by a hairdresser in Prenzlauer Berg who uses live piano music in his saloon. Requested to play light and relaxing piano music, Manuel decided to compose his new album Friseur, where he plays his new compositions synced with a karaoke-like backtrack.

Gyre Ensemble at Radial!

RADIAL hosts Gyre Ensemble for a residency and in WURM!

We are looking forward to this event. If you are curious here’s what the trio has to say about this next show!

”This program reflects a crossroads for the group. We started something in 2015, with the goal to expand the music available for this instrumentation, Accordion/Percussion/Saxophone. Now, there are at least one or two other group with the same or similar arrangement, and they have either performed some of the same works that came from our initiatives or gone on to create more work with musicians from around the world. This makes us very pleased and satisfied. We have achieved what we set out to do, but where do we go from here?
This evening attempts to answer that – while performing two pieces already written for us, we also chose music by three composers that while we may never meet in collaboration have deep relevance and meaning to each of us. ”

On the program:
Nadir Vassena – Von den Rosen
Wojtek Blecharz – Smalltalk
Esaias Järnegard – Kuarup B
Ruud Roelofsen – Darkness Dissected
Jürg Frey – More or Less Normal

GYRE ENSEMBLE is:
Christian Smith – percussion
Alejandro Oliván López – saxophones
Stefanie Mirwald – accordion

Tickets: from 10chf on / MAB students 5chf
