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.

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.

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.

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.

morgen neu



Ich kann ruhigen Gewissens dieses Jahr mit einem guten Gefühl abschliessen, ich hoffe, euch geht es auch so. Ich wünsche hiermit den ganzen Mitmenschen auf dieser merkwürdigen Welt alles erdenkliche und nichterdenkliche Gute für das neue Jahr. Hört mal auf, euch über den ganzen blödsinnigen Kram zu ärgern und begreift, was euch alles geschenkt wird. Jammern könnt ihr, wenn ihr tot seid.

Ach und übrigens, liebe Hamburger: Inox und ich sind kein Paar. Tatsächlich sind weder er noch ich homosexuell. Und darüber hinaus auch durchaus noch zu haben.
