10. August, Staalplaat - Berlin Mitte
August 10 starts early at 14.30 o'clock in Staalplaat Record Store in the Torstrasse in Berlin Mitte. Outerberlineesh sound artists will be heard through streaming. Tobias Luther from radioincorrect.org will publish the programme on his website. Expect participants form different time zones.
Tobias Luther is a dedicated radiomaker who covered the complete second edition of the dkfrf. Edited versions of his recordings were transmitted by radio's around the world and were praised by all who had ears.
In Harold Schellinx words: "Did I already mention Tobias Luther? ( **** ) Tireless Tobias lugged along a huge suitcase crammed with equipment, all over Berlin, up and down from Schöneweide to the ever changing locations where the das kleine evenings were taking place. Tobias recorded everything, and aired it on his radioINCORRECT. He moreover made the recordings available to other radio stations, and produced a fine two hour summary of the festival for ResonanceFM's Framework, giving an interesting overview of all that went on at das kleine."
I am glad he will come to Berlin for this long radio day.
Breaking News: Tobias has cancelled his trip to Berlin, because of domestic reasons. Tobias will coordinate everything from Leipzig. Take a look at the programme. Ruben Patino will give a helping hand from Berlin, directly from Staalplaat.
From 17.30 onwards Berlin based artists will play live. You can hear dkfrf-veterans Stephane Leonard and rauschpartikel and newcomer Marta Zapp(aka xpenelopex).
Stephane Leonard surprised me on both of the former editions with his raw punky approach, offering in this way an audio impression of a molochial metropole hard to dominate, but ever so inviting to explore for whatever adventure. In Staalplaat Stephane will bring his unedited recordings from Berlin, that will lead up to an acoustic story about wandering and wondering.
rauschpartikel made his debut with tropical typewriter sounds, that made me think of Graham Greene working in a far away colonial world. On his (rauschpartikel's it is) next debute he changed the domestic sounds of a refrigerator into a mesmerising drone that impressed everyone. Little did Martin know, but I saw it, that Wendy, his collegue at Wendel's, was doing her barwork in a swift and gentle way. Her movements were like a summer's breeze (though it was midwinterly February), and the sounds she produced interacted as by magic with Martin's work. This Friday he will use the sounds that Staalplaat record store will produce, and recompose them in real time.
Marta Zapp(aka xpenelopex) comes from a town in Italy where people drink grappa for breakfast, and where tourists look for the remains of a Shakespearian play. Marta came to Berlin to live and play, because she neither wants to drink grappa in the morning or poison in the night. And what else is there to do in Italy?
Last minute extra act: dis playce, highly recommended by Stephane Leonard.
