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.

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.

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.

Ausstellung im Hafen 2



Tschä...

Da ist seit meinem letzten Eintrag soooo verdammt viel vorgefallen, dass ich jetz garnicht so recht weiß wo anzufangen.

Nun zunächst einmal den Veranstaltungshinweis:

Meine Ausstellung Kompressionsartefakte steht zwar schon seit dem 14. Februar im Hafen 2 in Offenbach, aber am 7. März ab 19 Uhr findet, wenn auch leicht verspätet, noch mal eine offizielle Vernissage inklusive Liveperformance und Redenschwingen statt.

Leider (oder eigentlich eher nicht leider) war ich letzte Woche mal so auf feinem Familienentspannungsurlaub auf Norderney, weswegen ich mich nicht so recht um die Werbung dafür kümmern konnte. Darüber hinaus hat mir mein ansonsten soweit außerordentlich fein geratener Neffe seine schäbigen Mikroben um die Ohren gehauen und mich eigentlich bis gestern lahmgelegt. Das war meines Erachtens nicht notwendig gewesen.

Noch weniger notwendig war allerdings der Umstand, dass sich mein Rechenknecht seinerseits ein paar weitaus schäbigere Mikroben zugelegt hat und ICH GRAD KOTZEN KÖNNTE, weil das wieder einen Haufen Zeit kosten wird, ihn wieder sauber zu kriegen.

Hm.

Whoever manages to watch (and listen to) this until the end without suffering serious damage and later proves it to me, wins a pair of used socks or something:
