ABOUT THE PERFORMERS

Matija Schellander (Austria)
http://matija.klingt.org/
Matija Schellander is an Austrian composer and improvising musician

currently based in Vienna, mostly using double bass, modular synthesizer, and speakers: processing input, moving air output.

In 2012 his solo CD "sum šum" with 7 electroacoustic composition will be released by the small publishing office The Manual (Seoul).

Schellanders current double bass solo project is a three-part performance that incorporates space, movement, light and sound. Conceptual on one hand, it never dismisses the non-rational, sensual communicational possibility intrinsic in music.

Schellander regularly works with Rdeča Raketa (electracoustic duo with Maja Osojnik) and in duos with Enrico Malatesta (percussion / double bass) and Franz Hautzinger (quartertone trumpet / modular synthesizer) as well as thethe ensemble Low Frequency Orchestra (Castello/Grill/Osojnik/Schellander).Other collaborations include Okkyung Lee, Burkhard Stangl, Anja Utler, Isabelle Duthoit, Michael Thieke, Hannes Lingens, Klaus Filip, Choi Joonyong, Metalycée, Andrea Neumann, Katharina Klement, Chris Heenan, Olaf Hochherz, Lukas König, Daniel Riegler, Dieb13, Kazuhisa Uchihashi, Ryu Hankil, Christof Kurzmann, Jin Sangtae, Jorge Sanchez-Chiong, Noid, Bernhard Lang...

noid /aka Arnold Haberl *1970, living in Vienna.

He studied cello and mathematics in Vienna, he is teaching at the Multimedia-Art department of the University for Applied Science in Salzburg.

The composer, sound-artist, cello player and improvisor understands his work as fundamental research leading to a wide range of contradictory outcome. Spanning from cello-solo and tape-pieces to compositions for ensembles, improvisation scores or performances with electronic or hybrid instruments, from sound-installations to videos and imaginary music. Also his contributions as a programmer for the freeware "ppooll" (http://ppooll.klingt.org/) can be seen in this context.

This approach lead him to collaborations with visual artists as for instance Alexander Schellow, Heike Kaltenbrunner, Erik Hable or God's Entertainment, several choreographers like João Fiadeiro, Colette Sadler, Akemi Takeya, Philipp Gehmacher, and of course other musicians.

Beside his two long term ensembles "ease" (w/ Klaus Filip) and "b:f:n" (w/ Cordula Boesze und Wolfgang Fuchs) he was performing as an improvisor in various constellations, among others with: Taku Unami, Axel Doerner, Christian Weber, dieb13, o.blaat, Billy Roisz, Carl Stone, Kazuhisa Uchihashi, Burhard Stangl, Hankil Ryu, etc...

He is part of the organizing team of the annual interdisciplinary festival "reheat" (http://reheat.klingt.org/) and the monthly performance series "Der Blöde Dritte Mittwoch" (http://bloedermittwoch.klingt.org/) in Vienna. Since 2009 he is curating the sound-art exhibition in the frame of the festival "Konfrontationen Nickelsdorf". (http://konfrontationen.at/)

About The Artist:

Sima Kim

Sima Kim was born in South Korea and grew up in Europe. He started studying music at 18 years-old and did a degree in musicology after being influenced by western classical and contemporary music. After visiting Germany and India, he started composing music and has had his music released on several labels - Rural Colours(UK), Twisted Tree Line (UK), Cathedral Transmissions (UK), Stuk Label(JP), and Twice Removed Records (AU). His work has also appeared on some compilations, such as future sequence, mu-nest and mizukage records. His main interest is on the sounds, notes and silences within a state of mindfulness.

http://simakim.tumblr.com/

La'bridge

La’Bridge Music Project was born in Canton and becomes more mature in Hong Kong.

The music of La’bridge cannot be simply categorized as typical technos or instrumentals. Its unique performance unites these two territories with subtle and psychedelic visual effect.

Here is La’bridge, a voyage of the musical imagination of a Chinese girl.

http://www.la-bridge.net/

Yellow Crystal

An experimental guitar and electronics duo formed by Sherman and Heivard.

Sherman plays electric guitar and effect pedals. His debut solo work “Politely We Grow Old” was released by Lona Records in 2006.

Heivard is a musician / sound artist based in Hong Kong. An experimentalist who shapes Ambient, Glitch, IDM and other sonic arts into unpredictable forms. His works have been released by Fwonk*, Inside│Outside and other net labels under creative commons licenses.

https://www.facebook.com/Yellowcrystalhongkong

adeō

adeō happened like an accident... but it goes like a coincidence... everything came into play without acknowledging too much... a matter of sound and the amount of air that pushes through the speakers... "to there" we hailed ... and here comes adeō.

adeō consists Alok (A Roller Control, 31G), Sin:Ned (No One Pulse, After Doom), e:ch (Forget the G) and oetzi.p (31G, A Poison Tree). Raging low ends turn a dull room into a vibrating object, where the guitars splice ... while the air get sliced.

6.29 Kill The Silence Festival @ LMA Macao


 



Kill The Silence Festival

破殺死寂。這是個必須的實行的計劃。徹底地。

有這樣的必要,與死寂對決。我所指,是我們之間的死寂。

所以我們以聲音來破殺死寂。我們選擇的,是衆聲喧嘩的破殺:從最甜美的搖滾、尖端電音以至最極端的實驗噪音(對!我們從不相信界線與分類!)。兩個舞臺,十八個澳、港、日演出單位,十二小時的馬拉松式破殺,還有實時的聲影互動及不停站的獨立短片放送(對!我們是瘋狂的!)。

這一切都將發生在系統以外。因為死寂來自系統,我們必須殺之於系統以外。

你要付的代價,由你作主!(所有聲音,都必須由聽聲者來完成!)

你的選擇:在系統之內継續死寂,或,在系統以外,破。殺。死。寂。

We have to Kill The Silence. We have no other option. Nothing in between.

The dead space of silence, between us.

2 stages!! 18 performing units from Macao, Hong Kong & Japan!! 12 hours of non-stop killing!!

All these insanity will be happening outside the system. The silence comes from the system, and we can only kill it, outside the system.

You Pay : What You Want!!

Your options: Stay inside the system to be rotten by silence, or jail break and Kill The Silence!!

亂章取異。零點壹陸: 黑狼暗夜行路那卡西

 
 
RE-RECORDS & CIA PRESENTS
亂章取異。零點壹陸: 黑狼暗夜行路那卡西


《暗夜行路》是日本「小說之神」志賀直哉 (1883-1971) 唯一的長篇小說,前後篇發表相隔十五年。作為小說家的投影,主角獨自走在暗夜中的山路上,自然的景色感動了他、安撫了他。「暗夜行路」那卡西呈現出來的心境,迥異於同名小說主角離奇的家世背景與始亂終棄的婚姻生活,剩下的只有一個人在自然中不斷前進。把一個人丟進大自然裏,他必須判斷前面的路要怎麼走;把一個「零餘者」丟進大自然,如果要尋求抒發心情,固然可取,但是尋短不成,必將心生恐懼,想早點離開這個鬼地方。黑狼暗夜行路那卡西的假想故事背景,正是富士山腳的「青木之原」樹海,所謂陸上的百慕達三角洲。黑狼的暗夜行路越走越暗,一路上看見各種如地獄遊記般的景象,足以使人忘記疲憊的身心與泥濘不堪的衣服,究竟何者是幻?何者是真?

ABOUT CULTURE INDUSTRIES ASSOCIATION (CIA)
Through our regular programs of concerts, art exhibitions, film screenings, seminars and workshops, it is our hope to bring to you not what have we seen already, but rather how we perceived these ideas, their contexts, and how these seemingly abstract concepts can affect and relate to our everyday lives. To prompt changes, renew our senses and debase our previously fixated point of views, this is the only way to a future – any future away from here. According to Plato, we live chained inside a dark cave; all we can see is the back wall and the shadows that move there. Carl Jung called this his shadow work. That what we in fact seeing are aspects of ourselves that fall over one another. Shadows. Projections. Our associations - of the culture industries.

ABOUT CIA (Cultural Industries Association)
Through our regular programs of concerts, art exhibitions, film screenings, seminars and workshops, it is our hope to bring to you not what have we seen already, but rather how we perceived these ideas, their contexts, and how these seemingly abstract concepts can affect and relate to our everyday lives. To prompt changes, renew our senses and debase our previously fixated point of views, this is the only way to a future – any future away from here. According to Plato, we live chained inside a dark cave; all we can see is the back wall and the shadows that move there. Carl Jung called this his shadow work. That what we in fact seeing are aspects of ourselves that fall over one another. Shadows. Projections. Our associations - of the culture industries.

Alfred 23 Harth – As Yves Drew A Line. Estate

Multi-instrumentalist, improviser, composer and visual artist Alfred Harth was born near Frankfurt/Main in Germany. He first recorded at age twenty with the free music ensemble Just Music which was issued on ECM (1002). In the late ’70s, he became interested in punk music and in addition to a regularly-working duo with multi-instrumentalist Heiner Goebbels, he played in punkjazz / improvisation / modern composition combos like Cassiber, Duck and Cover, Gestalt et Jive, Vladimir Estragon and Imperial Hoot. Since 2001 living and working also in Seoul, South Korea, he has been involved with Otomo Yoshihide’s New Jazz Ensembles, composer Carl Stone, the groups 7k Oaks and Taste Tribes, his own multi-media and many more projects.

“As Yves Drew A Line. Estate” is the latest solo work from Alfred 23 Harth displaying his unique treatment on improvised jazz, noise, experimental sounds with cut-up technique. Real avant-garde music that tastes good while stays true to its challenging nature.

Alfred 23 Harth (Germany)
http://www.alfredharth.de/data/_index.html

檢視Harth的個人音樂生涯真是洋洋灑灑,說他是現存前衛音樂活字典實不為過,這位活躍實驗音樂圈四十多年、集作曲、跨媒體、多樂器演奏於一身的奇人,不但親身經歷過好幾個實驗音樂的變化發展階段,其涉獵範圍之廣與始終不變的實驗精神尤其令人敬重,早在1969年德國新音樂名廠ECM才剛成立時,年僅二十歲的他即以當年西德自由即興組合Just Music成員身份,在ECM留下編號1002的《Just Music》,這張依然沒有CD化的絕版專輯從此成為許多歐陸即興樂迷的夢幻逸品,不過這只是他往後豐富曲折的音樂人生一個小小開始而已。七0年代他跟Heiner Goebbels的二重奏以及跟Uwe Schmitt、Buschi Niebergall的三重奏是當時德國自由爵士的中堅力量,其中他跟Goebbels的合作特別成功,不但以兩人為核心演化出更多組合(最有名的莫過於前衛搖滾四重奏Cassiber),同時留下許多優秀作品,包括1981年他和Goebbels錄製爵士加詩歌的專輯《Zeit wird knapp》,其中的詞源於布萊希特。事實上Harth還真的曾經幫布萊希特的戲劇作品“Der Brotladen(麵包店)”作曲。另外值得一提的是他們是最早將革命京劇音源採樣拼貼在西方當代音樂作品的音樂家。

此外Harth在80年代初也曾經組成大樂團,在ECM/JAPO發行專輯《Es herrscht Uhu im Land》,音樂融合朋克、爵士和古典風格,迅即獲得廣泛注目,往後不管他與John Zorn的二重奏;與Peter Brötzmann和Sonny Sharrock的三重奏;或者是跟Lindsay Cooper和Phil Minton的三重奏等等都十分精彩,加上他靈活運用不同實驗音樂手法在一些劇場、影視、舞蹈跟廣播劇音樂創作,至今留下數量可觀的錄音。2000年後,Harth將觸角伸向韓國及日本,2004起更成為大友良英ONJO樂團首位固定外國成員。這幾年他開始往中國了解新音樂發展狀況,積極跟中國年輕實驗音樂人交流。

Multi-instrumentalist, improviser, composer and visual artist Alfred Harth was born near Frankfurt in 1949. He first recorded at age twenty with the ensemble Just Music, with whom he recorded two LP's, one of which was issued on ECM. Throughout the 1970s he worked with musicians like pianist Nicole Van Den Plas, drummer Sven-Ake Johansson, bassist Peter Kowald, trumpeter Michael Sell and others in West European free music. In the late '70s, he became interested in punk music and in addition to a regularly-working duo with multi-instrumentalist Heiner Goebbels, he worked in punk / progrock / improvisation / modern composition combos like Cassiber and Gestalt et Jive. Since moving to Seoul, South Korea in 2001, he has been involved with Otomo Yoshihide's New Jazz Orchestra and his own multi-media projects.

ABOUT THE ARTISTS

Mei Zhiyong梅志勇 (China)
http://site.douban.com/meizhiyong/room/2668342/
http://www.fuzztape.com/
Harsh noise performer, founder of the tape release label Fuzztape, and member of the Chinese noise collective NOJIJI. As a noise artist, he is looking for insane expression of high volume harsh noise, and unusual ways of releasing sound from all kinds of device.

Naturalismo (Italy)
www.monstresparexces.com
Previously known as Istituzioni Ambienti Naturalismo. It all starts with a microcassette recorder wandering in Rome subway, taping live cut-up bursts of saturated city life. Shifts to harsh noise that struggles to keep a buried layer of melody. Sometimes fails at it. Explores the sounds of lights, sonorizes short video studies on lenses and lightning. Converts to silent sounds, the breath of small things, the daily tinkling sounds of lived houses. Explores minimalism with irony, always loyal to cheapness and imperfection. Dissects an acoustic guitar with a screwdiver. Keeps going.
