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.

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.

jetzt mal wirklich



...Also hab ich mir überlegt, mal so was Bloggiges zu richtigmachen. Ist eigentlich auch schon ein bisschen länger her, allerdings hab ich es erst jetzt geschafft, das Blog-Skript ordentlich und nach meinen Vorstellungen (zumindest halbwegs) zum Laufen zu kriegen. Selber schuld, wenn man ein Kontrollfreak ist und keine Lust drauf hat, die ganze Nummer bei Wordpress oder was zu starten. Jetzt also Blosxom... merkwürdige Weichware...

Naja, nichtsdestotrotz also dann zukünftig käsige Ergüsse und so Sachen.
Ja, Sachen.
Augenscheinlich ist das Cyber-web zwischenzeitlich dermassen voll damit, dass es letztlich keinen großen Unterschied zu machen scheint, ob man welche hinzufügt oder nicht. Obwohl ∞+1 halt immer so 'ne Sache ist.

Eigentlich nicht so spannend bis jetzt. sollte wohl noch kommen, wenn was passiert. Was auch immer passieren soll. Irgendwas passiert ja immer.

Ob die Linkerei so funktioniert, bleibt abzuwarten/auszuprobieren...

Hm, hat nicht so richtig funktioniert... mal sehn...

Na, wer beim Html die Anführungszeichen weglässt ist selber doof. Außerdem eine Gelegenheit, eine Linkerei zu Evas Youtubeaccount zu verlinken, damit sie noch viiiiiiiel viel mehr Klicke bekommt und letztendlich dann so reich und berühmt wird, dass ich mich von ihr aushalten lassen kann. Hm.

Wie dem auch sei. Erstmal so.
