SCHLUSS (Sky Walking)
From the circles of Hamburg’s Golden Pudel Club the duo Schluss presents their debut album “28” on Sky Walking. Éric Falconnier and Joachim Schütz join another adventure into Spontaneous Music- free and intense, demanding and magical.
A life dedicated to Noise, Experimental Music and Free Jazz, Éric Falconnier played in several formations such as Gebrochene Beine who appeared with the most notable piece on the previous Sky Walking compilation. Joachim Schütz is known for his collaborations with Ellen Fullman, Konrad Sprenger, Arnold Dreyblatt and Samara Lubelsky to only name a few. Schütz is also part of the Metabolismus collective.
With their dynamic, fragile and highly surprising Live sets and recordings, Schluss are on the path to decline expectations and burst conventions.

Surfacing underneath you sea asu lapis
Trying to imagine being underneath a liquid that we call water while clutching to a metal ledge of a big concrete building with air in my lungs. Sensing water in your ears and eyes. Being split by water. Thoughts astray.
Algaic groaning gulping machines touching the liquid surface. Outer voices uttering in displaced languages. Who are you I am? Sinking. Waves floating over and under. Listening to antartic krill that sway to and fro. Emerging. Walking over oceanic noise, turning the page.
Your ears on surfaces.

Carl Simon (Mmodemm)
Enchante (Jolly Discs)
Carl Simon aka Mutandini Karl aka Host Stewart aka Charlotte Simon ist die andere Hälfte von Les Trucs und Mitgründerin des ausserordentlich feinen Tape-Labels MMODEMM.
Ihre 1001 A.K.A.s deuten es an: Carl Simon ist umtriebig, gibt wenig auf Grenzen und Transgression. Carly is living, breathing, djing, mutating Minimal Wave, japanischen Gagaku, cheesy Postpunk, Industrial-Tapes und House History.
Enchante ist Dj und Produzent aus London, Labelbetreiber bei Jolly Discs, Mitveranstalter von Top Nice und Bildender Künstler, derweil in Frankfurt am Main.
Annawooh uses electronic soundscapes, her voice, and beats to create an image of a desolate landscape. Its a place where humans are small, and the image is both dark as well as humorous.
Debut album coming out 20 September 2017 on Stoscha.

Nika Son – mnemonic string
A reciprocal glow at the edge of the retina, a confused bleeping in the cochlea – in the last episode of Channel Sundays Nika Son presents a noisy sketch in space.
mnemonic string is a performance: an ensemble of objects, devices, people and sounds that linger in the dark, take shape and disappear. The visual elements only materialize when touched by light, whereas the sound moves more freely, insubstantially. It eludes the mise-en-scène, plays with coincidences and shapes its own way through space.
One’s attention is held by the echoes of sensory perception, (dis)orientation, repetition, reverberation and its dispersion. How do perceptions link up in space? Which memories are shared by both eye and ear? Can sound bristle? – And what on earth does cranstrikzss mean?

THE WILDNESS OF WAVES
30 October 2016, 19 h
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.
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.

Svarte Greiner (Miasmah/Type)
Aaron Moore (Volcano the bear)
Svarte Greiner is the shadow casted solo guise of Berlin based
Norwegian Erik K Skodvin (B/B/S, Deaf Center). Inhabiting his own genre of Acoustic Doom since the early Type records days, his music and live performance can be seen as something of a time stopping cinematic experience, embodied by surreal peaks of guitar improvisations and low rumbling drones. Working otherwise with soundscapes both for visuals, film and as inspirations for his own record label Miasmah, he attempts to purvey something of a timeless and honest sound merging melancholy with horror.
AARON MOORE :
Primarily a drummer he generally considers any instrument or object playable in one way or another. Moore is a founding member of the English experimental group Volcano The Bear. Formed in 1995 VTB have been critically acclaimed as one the leading lights of the British experimental music scene. In a 2006 feature on the group the Wire magazine described them as “producing some of the finest, wildest British music of the last 10 years on record & on stage”.
As a solo performer Moore thrives on the unpredictable. Since moving to Brooklyn in 2006, he has been developing his solo work in a number of ways using 4-track tape machines, percussion, trumpet and voice to create methodical sonic environments, with the constant potential for chaos and collapse leading him to new territories. A habit for audience participation/gentle manipulation is also crucial to his live work. Moore is a firm believer in spontaneity. Being as loosely prepared as possible is his mother of invention.
Moore has appeared on over 40 albums with various groups & toured extensively in Europe and North America. He has a number of other ongoing projects including a duo with Argentinian improvisor Alan Courtis, Brooklyn based ’notjazz‘ group Gospel Of Mars and has collaborated/performed with Thierry Muller, Boredoms, A Hawk & A Hacksaw, and the LAFMS group AIRWAY amongst many others.

Eugeniusz Rudnik revolutionized the idea of music itself with a pair of scissors and a magnetic tape. As part of the legendary Experimental Studio of Polish Radio, he revealed hidden value in rough and rejected sounds long before the rise of the DJs. In an era of electronic music created in a workshop resembling a scientific lab, he composed music to reach and to portray other human beings.
“15 Corners of the World” is an attempt to hear the vision of his music. Following the rhythms of architecture, the human body, and the throbbing pulse of nature we discover a new reality. We touch the sound.
Moving images reveal a miracle that emerged in the age of tape recorders and disappeared with the advent of computers. They express the wonder of the analogue era – the urge to experiment, to discover new territory, explore the borderlands, and constantly search for new means of expression.

You usually won’t be able to walk on it / there may have been a „crack“ sound and the shock and pain may cause you to feel faint, dizzy or sick / don’t try to realign any bones that are out of place / a doctor or surgeon may need to put them back into place. This is known as reduction / Plates, screws and rods will usually be left in place permanently unless they become a problem / it only shows signs of getting much more intense, focused, targeted, unyielding and galactically more boring / If our lives are a movie, this is the point where the future audience is shouting at the screen / fuck you, here’s a rainbow / But really, everybody knows. There’s a good living to be made in the service of death, however.
