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.

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

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.
