M:Soundtrack presents 1st show of the year thursday January 11th in Schokoladen berlin mitte: AVA & THE HAWKLINE MONSTER (paris-berlin) + MARZIPAN MARZIPAN (italia/berlin) + AIR CUSHION FINISH a.k.a jayrope, the sighs (berlin via figi) an evening of artists who love writers, jellyfish who like sunshine, and humans who walk on streets, faces, smells and things that will never be as before. all of them who in turn dedicate themselves to spreading the word with whatever is at hand, blips beeps guitar garage band cardboard and drummachines…they sing songs that one moment kling like a broken carney..blues for being happy..cowgirls, songs for growing tomatoes and a neighborhood boom in overprocreation per sq.mile. This is a new Year.we may have found the key. listen.

Ava and the Hawkline Monster believes in cardboard. She plays cardboard
instruments bass, doublebass, guitar and piano. Ava sings songs in French, English
and German about anti-chivalry, overwhelming natality, disgusting heartbreaks,
and Attention Deficit Disorder. The Hawkline Monster keeps an eye on it all. http://www.myspace.com/avaandthehawklinemonster

Marzipan Marzipan is currently one-woman band. I play with electric guitar, loops, multi effect pedal, vocals, sometimes tiny casio and drum machine. I like the type of things that turn bones to glass, contrappunto, perpetual astonishment and sense of humour. http://www.myspace.com/marzipanmarzipan

Air Cushion Finish influences: dang dang dangs / tomatoes / girlfriends / kids / other umoristic friends / hering in sweet sour cream sauce / le vin de bordeaux / coffee / coffee / coffee / additive free tobacco / bell sounding metal rear sides of drummachines no longer in use (xbase 09) he is otherwise known in certain circles in certain places as.. jayrope or one part “the sighs” http://myspace.com/madeinusb

Air Cushion Finish @ Eschschloraque, Berlin

by Jane is K.O. - 20.12.07

air cushion finish 2007Air Cushion Finish is the Berliner jayrope, riding the jellyfish and sticking the head into the sun, only on prepared baritone guitar, vocals and processing electronics.

Now drastically less melancholic, more acoustic noise rock on fast forward and very song-vocal-based compared to the music on his Myspace site – but it’ll get you an idea of last winter’s start of this, nevertheless.

The music is stand-up songwritten, emerging from scratch, folk-noise varying from hyperspeed to slow motion, surreal & kind of dada, purposedly escaping form whenever it starts to exercise itself.
Pataphysical rock, Ursonate for emotional porn.

jayrope is also part of ‘Berlin’s best live band’ (reboot.fm) Girls United, the future folk duo The Sighs, the death pop duo Touchdonttouch, the acoustic noise duo Television Workshop and the extreme physical jazz bash Kimmo Elomaa, all to be found on this website. Klik the kliklak on top.

LICHENS – kranky

Rob Lowe, der Bassist and Vokalist von The 90 Day Men einstiger
TV On The Radio Kollaborateur, formt sich mit LICHENS eine
wohldunstverhangene Blase Welt. Er zieht diese um sich zu wie
ein singender, dronender, ausatmender Töpfer im Inneren seines
durchscheinenden Gefäßes. Ist dieses geschlossen und leuchtend und wallt
vor dem Zuhörer wie ein pelzender, magmatischer Bienenstock, nimmt er zuweilen
die Gitarre und schneidet mit der Ruhe, mit welcher man einen Liebesbrief
vor dem Zukleben beleckt Horizonte hinein, die einen aus allen Ahnungen
werfen.

DESCRIPTION

DRAWN IN – The Comic Jam / Curated by Alexandra Lazar

Saturday, 7th November – Sunday, 8th November
Open participation: Sunday, 8th November from 4 to 7 p.m.

Artillerie is proud to announce its Comic Jam with international comic artists Beldan Sezen (Amsterdam), Helena Janecic (Croatia) and IF (Berlin).

For the duration of two days, the artists, who have never previously met, will work in condensed and improvised collaboration to create a comic style story in one long jamming session. The drawings created on Saturday will be hung on the walls right away, thus the exhibition process will become an incidental story-performance in itself.

The jam will further continue on Sunday, when artists will be joined by musicians Air Cushion Finish who will create a live sound collage around the ambiental noise of Artillerie before condensing it into a full-blown gig later that evening.

The Jam will be open to public on Sunday 8 November, so you can come along and join in. You’re welcome to bring your own brushes and pens for a day of fun, lines, blobs, sketches and great music. The session is free but bring some spare change as there’ll be plenty of amazing nibbles, drinks and affordable homemade art for sale!

The artworks will stay on exhibition until 1st December.
Starting 17th November, opening times are Tuesdays and Fridays, 2 p.m. until 5 p.m. Other viewings by appointment.

Check out the ACF here: http://myspace.com/madeinusb or http://kliklak.net/aircushionfinish

Karl Blau

To listen to Karl Blau’s albums and make descriptions of what is heard is to walk through a farmer’s market and describe all the vegetables grown in that area. It is the love that Blau feels for music that shines through; most anyone can sense the passion this cultivator has for his trade. Every age group has been exposed to punk rock and everyone needs heartfelt music now as much as ever.

Within the last 3 years Blau has toured Japan twice, spent a winter-long residency in Queens, NY, toured the East and West coast multiple times, and played 6 weeks of shows across Europe in Spring 2009, and festivals in Europe in August, followed by tours in the fall with Mount Eerie and LAKE.

Karl Blau constantly renews his commitment to exploring the frontiers of sound. In this world of instant access to musical cultures near and far that were once a series of thick walls of concrete – time becomes a limitless characteristic. His latest recordings, Max, are a snack pack of subdued, soulful, introspective emotional funk that shows Blau at his best.

Prior to his solo recordings (2007’s Beneath Waves [KLP174], 2008’s Nature’s Got Away [KLP192], 2009’s Zebra [KLP205], and 2011’s Max [KLP227]), Blau played (and still plays) with Bret Lunsford (Beat Happening) and Phil Elverum (Mount Eerie) in D+. In the spirit of his hometown Anacortes, Blau flies the flag of community and, likewise, Anacortes’s humble Knw-Yr-Own Records has released D+ “What Is Doubt For” and D+ “No Mystery.”

From 2008-2009, K Record’s Dub Narcotic Studio has employed Karl as a sort of “in house producer.” In this all-analog studio, Blau has recorded new albums by Arrington DeDionyso, LAKE, The Bundles (Jeffrey Lewis and Kimya Dawson), Angelo Spencer and Your Heart Breaks. Listen for Blau’s vocal and instrumental contribution on the new Laura Veirs album, Calvin Johnson’s latest release and the recordings of Ian Svenonious’s group Chain & the Gang.

Contact Field Orchestra
… is produced by Southern California artist and musician Damon Aaron. In 2008 he came across a box of 7” tapes at an estate sale in Altadena that turned out to be field recordings of a turn-of-the century orchestra of ex-miners; recorded almost entirely with hand-made instruments and contact microphones. This became the source material for a collection of celebrated releases with Hit+Run. CFO has also appeared on Giles Peterson’s seminal compilation series “Brownswood Bubblers”(Volume 10), and contributed to Ninja Tune’s popular “Solid Steel” mix. contactfieldorchestra.com

By releasing “bohemian drips presents: Kulku“ the Berlin imprint presents their third binaural production. After working within the spaces of the “KINDL – Center for Contemporary Art“, the label took the next challenge by leveling up the reverb times and working with an eight-head collective of “genious dilletants“ inside the ancient water reservoirs of Berlin, Pankow. These tanks provide, with their reverberation times from 6 to 18 seconds, a more than astonishing surrounding for this recording session.

Kulku’s acoustical sound sources and instruments, reaching from old wooden organ pipes, to xylophones, timpani, scrap metal and kids toys, creates an apocalyptical scenery that is strongly referencing within its construction to contemporary compositions of Avantgarde music like Steve Reich, György Ligeti or Carl Orff. The almost never ending, deep resonance of the tanks that served the band and the label’s producers as a frame for the recordings, created sounds from a extraterrestrial sphere which formed a modern kind of “Trance Music“ – “Primitive Music“ as the band named it themselves.

Founded in 2002 by Andreas Riska (a.k.a. Wenzlovar) and Johanna Riska, Kulku spans out to a maximum of ten musicians, including as well Gatis and Talis Silde from Ej Bejkot as Alex Samuels and Max Gassman from Brace/Choir. The bands’ sound is a weird mixture of Kraut, Noise, Soul and No-Age that was hidden in the Berlin underground for a long while and finally shows its blooming creativity with this record.

The core piece “Nach der Flut“ (referring to Hinnerick Bröskamps experimental movie “Vor der Flut – Before the Flooding“) is accompanied by four pieces characterized by Wenzlovar voice and a rough reduction of sounds within the tanks reverberations.

By the use of dummy head microphones “bohemian drips presents: Kulku“ is able to transport the initial trance effect of this record straight to the listener – the 360-degree soundscape takes us back into the tanks and offers a completely unique experience of sound. All binaural productions of the label are curated, arranged & produced internally by the collective. The triptych of components – the location, the microphone, the band – is solely managed by the labels’ team and the process of production is as important as the musical result.

Kulku’s “Orff-Kraut“ is available on 180g vinyl from November 12th 2016. A limited edition of 200 LPs come with handcrafted screen printings.

Air Cushion Finish formed in Berlin in 2007 and comprised composer/player jayrope and natural vocal synthesizer Lippstueck, who had enjoyed playing Berlin’s underground together since the 1990s. Lippstueck prominently sings, wordless and backwards in time, while his partner jayrope tends to also appreciate any DIY, electronic, string or percussion instrument small enough to fit into a single suitcase altogether.

Changing setup and subsequently music is programmatic to them, as well as having friends as guest musicians, all resulting into an unforeseeable slow motion cacophony of whispers, bleeps, rhythms and harmonies.
There’s a notion of Dada, but you never know.

This music might as well be described as a dream-like flow of musical and lyrical ideas […] there are preconceived islands, and the music drifts in free-form manner among them. Beautiful, involving and truly uncanny… (George Grella, Big City, NYC).

As this ever-present poetic note of disconnection with cemented structures & styles took them to places, they got to support a number of their own favourite artists along the line. After 7 albums of their own and upon a friendly invitation by members of GY!BE they recorded with Thierry Amar at Montreal’s Hotel2Tango in 2014. The resulting double 12” “Flink” was mixed and coproduced again by Thierry Amar and it should well mark their current state of poetical accident, swaying, swinging and bouncing, boldly careful, like a transparent tattoo on your forehead.
