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

Katy Kirbach & Simon Schäfer

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.

Give me a nice little twirl...



Downloaded a plugin to make gifsicle work with Gimp. You can find it here. If you ever were annoyed with the overall quality of your gifs, YOU WILL BE AMAZED. Only for Linux, though. But you might as well consider getting a proper operating system, too. Eat your heart out, Photoshop.

New work for an upcoming show is on its way.

Here's a small Vorgeschmack for both:

An old-ish gif I just found in my (mostly abandoned) Myspace-account.

Back to Nijmegen on 19th of July



Still feeling kind of deflated from taking down the show (and all of last weeks antics), I have to start taking care about future endeavours. There's a few more applications to be written and I seriously despise Artist statements, so this is gonna be .

But there's a few pleasant things coming up as well:

First of all, on 19.07.2011 der Warst will gloriously return to Nijmegen, where he's gonna play at the de-affaire festival

Also, now that I suddenly have way more time on my hands than I can handle, I really need to think about doing that DVD for Hand baked records.

I'll probably make some quick'n'dirty CD for Nijmegen, too.

Oh, and a lot of my gear seriously needs to go to the maintenance bay...

Keine Atempause, Geschichte wird gemacht.

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.

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:

Los geht's



Ich hab da jetzt ein Blog-Script namens Blosxom runtergeladen und das sieht alles noch total Scheiße aus. Aber ich bin allerbester Hoffnung, dass das noch wird.
In Zukunft wird sich an dieser Stelle dann mein Diplog (Diplom-Blog) befinden, mit dem ich die desinteressierte Welt über das Fortschreiten meines Diploms auf dem Laufenden zu halten gedenke. Dokumentation regelt und deswegen.
