Gazillion Gazebo Video



Here's some documentation of the Gazillion Gazebo project. It was a lot fun, even if I expected to freeze off a toe or my arse or something...

Anyways, here it is, and with it a big thank you to the great people of LICHTER Streetview, The Frankfurter Verein für Künstlerhilfe for saving the project financially and Heike for filming. And of course to everyone who was there for being there!

Post Performance Syndrome...



So there have been a few shows recently. Generally, it feels good to be playing live again. Althought the new setup needs a lot of work until it functions in a way that I want it to. But that's only my stuff and I didn't really expect it to work right away. In any case, it would be way less of a problem if it wasn't for all those fucking annoying PA idiots.

How come so many sound system people are just absolute fucking pussies when it comes to aggressive electronic live music? They bring a completely oversized PA to the venue and play punk bands and breakcore records at deafening volumes, but once I'm on, they shit their pants and turn the levels down to barely audible. Even if I tell them to turn it up about 4 times. Of course then the audience gets annoyed and leaves.

GROW SOME BALLS OR GET A FUCKING LIMITER, ASSHOLES!

It is so incredibly annoying to have just another performance ruined by some sound guy who just doesn't fucking get it.

And don't even get me started about that drugged idiot who thinks he needs to touch my instruments/mixer/whatever.

Yes, I am in a slightly bad mood.

Night shift revisited



It's been close to a year now since I had the Night Shift show at Simon Oldfield Gallery. Yesterday, I was surprised in a very very nice way by Rebecca Helen Page, who has filmed bits of the performance I've done there and uploaded them to Vimeo.

It was quite a noisy performance with very weird sound and I had very short hair at that time.

The desk I had my instruments on was absolutely gorgeous. It felt like my own private TARDIS.

Thanks a lot Rebecca.

Night Shift

Private View
7 September 2011, 18.30 — 20.30
 

Exhibition continues to
28 September 2011


Night Shift explores the relationship between painting, sculpture and performance with new work by Simon Schäfer and Katy Kirbach.  

The exhibition examines the tension between the handmade and ready-made; multiplicity and uniqueness; live event and still object; the diurnal and nocturnal.  Night Shift is visually and aurally layered with texture, sound, digital feeds, colour and analogue electronics.

Hamburg...



Well...

Playing to an audience of 5 (spread over the whole night).

We were quite good and the barman and the owner of the place really liked it.

Again, we got paid with beer and this time, we drank enough. Ernst Markus even a bit more than enough.

Apart from the gig, we were around a lovely bunch of people who made us feel very welcome. A very special Dankeschön goes to Monika and Ken. Next time I come to Hamburg, I'll call them directly.

morgen neu



Ich kann ruhigen Gewissens dieses Jahr mit einem guten Gefühl abschliessen, ich hoffe, euch geht es auch so. Ich wünsche hiermit den ganzen Mitmenschen auf dieser merkwürdigen Welt alles erdenkliche und nichterdenkliche Gute für das neue Jahr. Hört mal auf, euch über den ganzen blödsinnigen Kram zu ärgern und begreift, was euch alles geschenkt wird. Jammern könnt ihr, wenn ihr tot seid.

Ach und übrigens, liebe Hamburger: Inox und ich sind kein Paar. Tatsächlich sind weder er noch ich homosexuell. Und darüber hinaus auch durchaus noch zu haben.
