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.

Eva hat den Hessischen Filmpreis gewonnen!



Trotz aller persönlichen Angelegenheiten, die ich hier nicht weiter erörtern möchte, ist es doch sehr schön, wenn nahestehenden Menschen gutes widerfährt.

filmstill n gschichtn

Mit einer seltsamen Mischung aus Stolz, Schmerz und Freude weise ich also hier mal darauf hin, dass Eva Beckers wunderbarer Film n gschichtn, über den ich auch hier das eine oder andere mal berichtete, letzte Woche verdientermaßen den dann doch nicht ganz unbedeutenden Hessischen Filmpreis gewonnen hat.

---english---

Besides all the personal issues that I won't go into any deeper, it is great when nice things happen to the ones close to you.

It is with a strange mix of joy, pride and pain for me to announce that Eva Becker's wonderful Film n arratives has won the Hessische Filmpreis last week.

Herzlichen Glückwunsch.

Night Shift

Katy Kirbach & Simon Schäfer

 

SimonOldfield
 

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.

I lost my phone...



Ich habs im Bus liegen lassen, also kann von gestohlen eigentlich nicht die Rede sein.

Trotzdem:

Scheise.

Fone



Aus aktuellem Anlass sei es hiermit laut in die Welt posaunt:

Ich habe meiner Freundin letztes Jahr im Herbst ein ausserordentlich schoenes Telefon gebaut.

Last year in autumn I built a beautiful telephone for my girlfriend.

Und nachdem ich heute einen ordentlichen Akku gekauft habe, kann sie es nun sogar verwenden.

Hui, das wird ein Spass
