    ------------------------------------------------

    The Mute Synth II (MSII) pushes through a pick-up-and-play approach. It is born out of Dirty Electronics’ ongoing commitment to DIY and noise aesthetics, and serves as a catalyst for experimenting with electronic sound. At the core of the instrument is a versatile mini patchbay that provides expansion and modification permutations and a grid-like visual representation of patched parameters using coloured jumpers. The patchbay encourages a particular interaction with the instrument and playfulness. The printed circuit board artwork has multiple touch electrodes in the form of small squares that provide a labyrinth of possible connections and resulting behaviors. Different rhythmic sequences are created through hybrid 4-bit binary coding, feedback loops and bit bashing. The MSII was released on Mute Records along with an album with tracks by Chris Carter (Throbbing Gristle / Carter Tutti Void), Simon Fisher Turner, Dominic Butler (Bronze Teeth / Factory Floor), Kidkanevil, Dirty Electronics et al.

    CONCERT

    The Construct Has No Purpose
    Dirty Electronics/Max Wainwright/Dushume
    + special guest Johan Eriksson

    Datum:
    21 Jan 2017 - 20:00

    ------------------------------------------------

    It will be large, too large for the space it fills. It will become a place to be in, to perform in and around; it will direct and shape sounds and light.

    Performances by Dirty Electronics, Max Wainwright and Dushume based on the theme of The Construct Has No Purpose. Electronics with damp sticks - sounds of stones and bristle brushes - meaningless text and liquid characters - rubbing bass and hanging artifacts.

    ------------------------------------------------

    more info:

    John Richards explores the idea of Dirty Electronics that focuses on shared experiences, ritual, gesture, touch and social interaction. In Dirty Electronics, process and performance are often inseparably bound. The 'performance' begins on the workbench devising instruments and is extended onto the stage through playing and exploring these instruments. This approach is about making and ‘finding’ music through objects and things. Richards has been commissioned to create sound devices for various arts organisations and festivals and has released a series of hand-held synths on Mute Records.

    Wainwright is concerned with states of flux and how useless or broken objects can be sounded. He likes to engage audiences in conversation, creating instruments, trading, donating or receiving objects, and performing on the objects, or simply watching and listening.

    Dushume is influenced by Asian underground music and DJ culture. His work focuses on performing and improvising with purpose built do-it-yourself instruments, sampling and looping techniques, and re-mixing and re-editing approaches.

    John Richards has worked closely with Max Wainwright and Dushume on various collaborations. They have also perfomred together as Dirty Electronics. Wainwright and Dushume are released on the Dirty Electronics Mute Synth II compliation album (Mute Records 2014), alongside Chris Carter (Throbbing Gristle), Simon Fisher Turner, and Kidkanevil.

    ------------------------------------------------

    Sarah Hennies
    Sarah Hennies (b. 1979, Louisville, KY) is a composer and percussionist currently residing in Ithaca, NY. Her work is primarily concerned with an immersive, psychoacoustic presentation of sound brought about by an often grueling, endurance-based performance practice that Nathan Thomas of Fluid Radio described as “a highly sophisticated and refined performance technique…that starts and ends with listening and encourages a different way of listening from its audience.”

    www.sarah-hennies.com

    ------------------------------------------------

    Jeph Jerman & Tim Barnes
    Across a dozen years and the distance from Cottonwood, Arizona to Louisville, Kentucky, the duo of Jeph Jerman and Tim Barnes has offered powerful, minimal music rooted in a shared dedication to the creative act of listening.

    Jeph Jerman’s experimental roots run through the creative music scenes of Denver and Seattle, the 1980s cassette underground, and in more recent years a thorough sonic investigation of the desert Southwest where he lives and works.

    Tim Barnes’s resume as a percussionist, engineer, and curator is studded with collaborators that outline the entire cosmos of avant-garde music from the 1960s onward, including Tony Conrad, Sonic Youth, Ken Vandermark (who appears here as a guest), Royal Trux, and Tower Recordings.

    ------------------------------------------------

    Ikue Mori & Steve Noble
    Ikue Mori and Steve Noble first played together in 2010 at London’s Cafe Oto. It was immediately evident to everyone in the room that something had clicked and a very special combination had emerged.

    Apparently operating according to some sort of shared dream logic, Mori and Noble’s music is always unpredictable but never incoherent, switching suddenly between ominous abstract soundscapes and exuberant rhythmic interplay, peppered with strange recurrences, idiomatic fragments and vertiginous changes of perspective, and characterized by a strong sense of forward momentum.

    From her beginnings drumming with the seminal no wave unit DNA, Mori has always had a distinctively percussive sensibility, and her deft electronic manipulations merge perfectly with Noble’s fiercely physical handiwork. Drums and their digital double: the similarities and differences overlap and interrupt, crystallize and dissolve, split and converge into a fast-flowing torrent of compelling musical activity. —

    Angharad Davies & Tisha Mukarji
    “I have around 20 releases featuring Angharad Davies’s fine playing….(but) I think this one might be the finest, due in no small part to the improbably heightened telepathy connecting her to her unsung playing partner Tisha Mukarji.” — Jesse Goin

    Tisha Mukarji’s appearance has been made possible with the support of the Goethe Institut Schweden.

    ------------------------------------------------

    Áine O’Dwyer
    Áine O’Dwyer whose recent double album of improvised organ music, Music for Church Cleaners vol. I & II, is a modern minimalist magnum opus of the highest order. With a background that combines Irish traditional music and contemporary performance, she has created a multi-layered, exploratory, and experiential work that begs questions of historicism and the social proximities of the everyday, as well as the presumed nature of records themselves.” – BOMB Magazine

    ------------------------------------------------

    SAWT OUT — Mazen Kerbaj / Burkhard Beins / Michael Vorfeld

    Mazen Kerbaj was born in 1975 in Beirut and is active with comics, painting and music, publishing his first personal graphic works in 2000 and also starting to play publicly that year. His first concert — at Strike’s pub in Beirut — a duo with Lebanese sax player Christine Sehnaoui can possibly be regarded as the first improvised music concert in the Middle East. In 2001, together with guitarist Sharif Sehnaoui ,he created the MILL association that curates IRTIJAL — an annual international festival for free music in Beirut. Mazen Kerbaj currently lives in Berlin. In SAWTOUT — one of his regular working trios — Mazen is joined by percussionist Burkhard Beins and Michael Vorfeld.

    Beins — “one of the most distinctive percussionists in European free music” The WIRE — is an acclaimed solo performer on percussion and electronics and also a member of the ensembles Polwechsel, Activity Center, The Sealed Knot, Perlonex, Trio Sowari, Tree, Junk Orbit, Fracture Mechanics, and Splitter Orcheste. He also works with composers/musicans such as Sven-Åke Johansson, Andrea Neumann, Keith Rowe, Axel Dörner, Tarek Atoui, John Tilbury, or Charlemagne Palestine.

    Vorfeld also lives in Berlin, working as musician — playing percussion and self-designed string instruments — and visual artist. From early experiences with site specific art projects, Vorfeld’s visual interest shifted towards the use of light in three dimensional spaces. As a musician this is reflected in his concerns for the mixture and relation of different sound characters and their horizontal and vertical organisation.

  • Hilberts Hotell

    Datum:

    28 Apr 2017

    Hilberts Hotell är en serie konserter / performances / iscensättningar

    Ursprungligen är Hilberts Hotell en modell för oändlighet, konstruerad av matematikern David Hilbert.
    Hilberts Hotell härbärgerar oändligheter, evigheter i punkter, emedan tiden och livet i mycket är präglat av saker som försvinner, som går ur tiden.

    Här utgör Hilberts Hotell en imaginär fond för konsertserien / iscensättningarna som alla behandlar förlust av olika slag.
    Sånger, toner, sorger, rymder, tomheter, ljud, situationer, symboler, tynande galej, ebbande signaler och perceptioner susar in bland de ständigt ökande rummen.

    Modellen för Hilberts Hotell är, likt hur en som levande på vissa vis kan uppfatta döden, en fiktiv och transcendent plats. Hur förstår en något totalt utanför och bortanför en själv? Kan något bara försvinna?

    Tre av dessa konserter / performances kommer äga rum på Fylkingen,

    ------------------------------------------------

    24 november - He´s on the phone
    He´s on the phone är en iscensättning av ett telefonsamtal till en bortgången närstående, till en annan sida, byter plats, dillar, signalerar, signaler, ett växande stycke musik, en plats som gränsarmot alla världar, en chimär, omsluter oss, inom oss.
    Performancen är 20 min lång. Speltider Klockan 19:30 och klockan 20:30.

    +

    efter He´s on the phone uppförs en ljudinstallation av Potos Cryptophasic Mission . ”En kör av åtta
    kassettbandspelare framför musik i karaktäristiskt oprecis unison. Potos Cryptophasic Mission består av Tanya Byrne (Ectoplasm girls, Hypnotower) och Anders Enge (börft rec.)” Klockan 21:30

    4e december - We don´t know where she is
    Denna konsert utgörs av en sorts deckar-musikal-ljudlandskapsackompanjerad middag. En lättare måltid samt dryck serveras. En rad sånger, en uppluckrad kronologi. Någon och något har försvunnit från rummet.
    Till middagsshowen finns det 16 platser / föreställning.
    Vi spelar den fler gånger under kvällen, Klockan 19:00, 20:00 och 21:00.
    Boka via mail: miraeklund101@hotmail.com

    28e april - Grande Hilberts Hotell - release of loss
    Under denna kväll kommer alla konsertseriens stycken framföras, med rumsliga punkter från de olika showerna, minnen, återskapanden, scenerier.
    Detta är också en releasefest för skivan Hilberts Hotell.
    Det kommer bli galej efter konsertens/performancens slut och mer info om detta kommer!

    ------------------------------------------------

    Övriga tre konserter - som utgörs av en platsspecifik ljudholografisk hörlurskonsert, en utomshushyllning till Schrödingers katt samt den bortgångna kattvännen Smilla, en hemkonsert i form av en mässa för borttappade nycklar etx - kommer att ske på andra platser, exempel i Miras hem och vid djurkyrkogården vid Kaknäs.

    För mer info rörande dessa tillfällen, kan en inom kort se: www.miraeklund.com/hilberts-hotell.html

    Där kommer också kortare musikstycken, bilder, texter, samt visst repetitionsmaterial att postas när det närmar sig.

    ------------------------------------------------

    Konserterna kommer ges på svenska, med undantag för några ord och fraser här och var, men om det kommer icke svensktalande publik under exempel middagsshowen, kommer viktiga delar översättas ut med vägen. Men mycket är musik, sjungna ord, en annan kontext och ljudbild som kan bygga rum i sig.

    ------------------------------------------------

    Av och med Mira Eklund. Projektioner/video av Martin Malm. Medverkande: Artem Christiansson, Julia Lindblom, Mårten Holmberg, My Berg m.fl kan tillkomma!

    I samarbete med Fylkingen. Med stöd av Konstnärsnämnden.
