papiripar festival for pop | art | rotation 17th-20th October Künstlerhäuser Westwerk and Wendenstrasse, Hamburg   papiripar

is a quasi-palindromic propeller that diffuses the boundaries between image, sound and word. Boundaries become blurred and complex patterns evolve. The symmetry stumbles over its own mirror axis. papiripar will take place for the first time in October of 2018. The festival is dedicated to conceptual and progressive approaches to pop music and its intersection with art, film and performance.

Among disparate spheres, intersections will be exposed and interdisciplinary influences will be illuminated, following the motto: More art in music, more music in art! This axiom of Düsseldorf’s ATA TAK label defined the German underground scene in the late 1970s. Overlapping of music and art was apparent in actions and participants from multiple disciplines; musicians let themselves be inspired by art’s conceptual methods, artists made music, released fanzines and ran record labels, concerts assumed the character of performance art and had a strong visual component.

Stefan Helmreich will give a lecture on the scientific domestication of waves and their (wild) mythological background. It’s role will have to be examined.


Following his thoughts, Nika Son and Helena Wittmann will present a video-sound-installation: Ocean waves are sound waves are light waves.


Finally, Theresa George and Stefan Helmreich will talk about questions and memories that emerge between rhythm, space and language.
STEFAN HELMREICH is Elting E. Morison Professor of Anthropology at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (USA). His research examines the works and lives of biologists thinking through the limits of ‘life’ as a category of analysis. He has written two ethnographies on the topic: “Silicon Second Nature: Culturing Artificial Life in a Digital World (1998)” is about computer modeling in the life sciences and looks at the social and simulated worlds of Artificial Life. In “Alien Ocean: Anthropological Voyages in Microbial Seas (2009)” we can follow him to the deep sea and microscopic worlds of marine biologists. Currently he is working on wave science, in domains ranging from oceanography to cosmology to medicine to acoustics to social theory.

B/B/S  (Miasmah)

What happens when you take the founder of Miasmah records, Erik K Skodvin (aka Svarte Greiner and one half of Deaf Center), put him together with experimental drummer and electroacoustic musician Andrea Belfi and throw in a prolific drone metal avant-everything composer, Aidan Baker (also member of Nadja with Leah Buckareff)? Well, you get what is known as a ‘supergroup‘ in the underground circles (thinking here of Supersilent, Mortiz Von Oswald Trio and Black Elk), that’s what happens, and the result is beyond all expectations. Closer to the darker experimental and improvisational explorations of each individual artist’s output, the début collaboration under the B/B/S/ abbreviation is nothing but a marvel of sinister grandeur. Driven by an upbeat rhythm of Belfi’s abstract percussion, the deep distorted undertones of Baker’s versatile bass and the scratching growling of Skodvin’s bowed guitar, Brick Mask manages to capture the combined elements of post-everything doom-metal where each musician uniquely represents his own aesthetic in sound, while managing to seamlessly blend the output into one single stream of consciousness, as if these three have been at it for some time. This is yet another illegitimate mongrel of Berlin’s swarming and dense music scene, and one only wish for this ménage à trois to keep fertile for the many years to come! (Headphone Commute)
