Warstware at Mini Maker Faire



I will have a Warstware booth at the Elephant&Castle Mini Maker Faire on Saturday 6th of June.

Elephant&Castle MMF

I'll be around there pretty much all day and at some point, I'm gonna do a performance of sorts (no idea yet when that's gonna be-will update as soon as I know). The whole thing will take place in the London College of Communication which obviously is around Elephant & Castle.

Please pop by if you feel like it.

Warstware official



I decided to make the Warstware site, documenting my endeavours in circuit bending and machine hackery, official. It's still far from complete and quite messy because I'm slowly getting out of hibernation and projects are piling up, but in my opinion, it's too nice to keep informal for very much longer. Comments and productive criticism are appreciated.

Here we go:

Gazillion Gazebo und Walpodenakademie



Nun ist es also eine Sache! Oder genau genommen sogar zwei.

Nachdem sich der Frankfurter Verein fuer Kuenstlerhilfe e.V. bereit erklaert hat, das Projekt finanziell zu schultern, Ist es mir eine aussergewoehnliche Freude, mitzuteilen, dass meine merkwuerdige Kopfgeburt Gazillion Gazebo tatsaechlich stattfinden wird.

Was dann auch bedeutet, dass ich mir dann am Freitag und Samstag jeweils von 20-22 Uhr in Frankfurt auf dem Rossmarktgelaende umgeben von jeder Menge anderer abgefahrener Projekte anderer Leute ordentlich den Allerwertesten abfrieren darf. Hui, das wird ein Spass.

Weiterhin gibt es dann noch begeistert zu vermelden, dass ich am darauf folgenden Montagabend, den 25. Maerz in der Walpodenakademie in Mainz unter dem wirren Motto: "Drinnen draussen sein", audiovisuell aufspielen werde. Wer also nach der Lichternummer noch nicht genug, oder dafuer keine Zeit gefunden hat, der soll doch einfach nach Mainz kommen. Das ist dann dem "draussen" im Namen zum Trotze auch drinnen, da muss man dann also nicht so frieren.

Hier ach nochmal das offizielle Fressenbuch-event. das teht dann noch ein wirrer Text und eine Wegbeschreibung dabei: https://www.facebook.com/events/305919449535687/?ref=ts&fref=ts

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.

Autumnblips.



I have posted it elsewhere on christmas, but I completely forgot to post it here. Oh well, happy chinese new year then...

Here is the recording of my gig at autumnblips at Panke in Berlin.
A few months after this gig, the memory battery of one of my gameboy cartridges died, thereby erasing two years worth of songs. The idiot that I am also hasn't really taken care of backing up anything since then. Some of those songs I have not even recorded. I will never be able to play, let alone hear them anymore. No one will. They will be fading ghosts in the back of my brain that will haunt me whenever I get reminded of a particular melody or a beat or whatever...

Everytime I touch my Gameboy now, or actually any portable gaming device, it burns LIKE HELL!!!!. I will have to learn to love it again, but right now the disappointment is overpowering.

This was the last real 'official' recording from this particular cart. It feels very important to me, because it kind of sums up what I've been doing in those two years. And it shows me that it's time for a change in program. The Gameboy has dominated my set for quite a while now and in a way, I have started to let myself be limited through that.

So, a few days ago, I built a new Lab, And from here on, I think my sound will be a bit different again. Looking forward to a new challenge.
