About the performers:

Robert Piotrowicz (PL)
robertpiotrowicz.net
Robert Piotrowicz is a sound artist, composer and improviser. He has authored radio dramas, sound installations, and music for theatre productions, and collaborates regularly with other artists on audio-visual performances. As an instrumentalist, Piotrowicz works mainly with his own live performance setup, developed around the electric guitar and analogue modular synthesiser. His music has as much in common with contemporary electro-acoustic compositions as it does with sound art. His concerts feature saturated, detailed musical forms created with analogue synthesizers and computers. He has developed his trademark sound of intense dynamics seized in dramatic and balanced structures.

PIotrowicz has released several solo albums as well as collaborations with artists such as Burkhard Stangl, Anna Zaradny, Jérôme Noetinger, C. Spencer Yeh and Kevin Drumm. Other collaborators in recent years included Valerio Tricoli, Oren Ambarchi, Martin Klapper, Zbigniew Karkowski, Łukasz Szałankiewicz, Lasse Marhaug, John Hegre, Kasper Toepltz, Xavier Charles,Tony Buck and others.

He is also co-founder of the Musica Genera Festival and the Musica Genera label.

Olaf Hochherz (DE)
http://hochherz.klingt.org/
Olaf Hochherz is born 1981 in Wuppertal/Germany. He improvises with self build electronic instruments and is interested in unstable systems. His goal is not to control a technical aperture but to create an associative field. The sounds have their own live. His playing tries to keep them alive. He is interested in the effect acoustic activity has, the relation between surrounding environment and instruments, between abstract sounds and associations, between electrical and other worlds.

Phantom (HK)
Phantom, a local modular synthesizer duo of Hong Kong established by William Cheung in 2014. Timmy Lok joined and started to improvise free form electronic music using all analogue full or semi-modular synthesizer systems.

Alain Chiu (HK)
http://alainchiu.com/
 Award-winning composer Alain Chiu’s music has been performed in concert halls and festivals throughout the world. His music was heard in the 41st & 42nd Hong Kong Arts Festival, Hong Kong Week at Taipei, Jumping Frames Italy Tour and Cannes Film Festival, and has been performed by the Ives Quartet, the Afiara Quartet, William Lane, Kung Chi Shing, Louis Siu and among many fine musicians.

Chiu’s music was recorded by the Grammy Award winning ensemble Orchestra of Our Time in 2011. He is working on a multimedia opera that deals with class issues in Hong Kong.

About the Performers:

Tim Blechmann (AT)
http://tim.klingt.org/

His music is focused on static noise textures that are digitally generated and spatially projected in real-time. For live performances his preferred lineup is the duo with other improvising musician. Regular collaborators include Klaus Filip, Manuel Knapp, Seijiro Murayama and Conny Zenk among others.

Soviet Pop (CN)
http://sovietpopbeijing.bandcamp.com/
A Sound-based Oscillator-Duo (Li Qing and Li Weisi), using analog synth and lo-fi equipments to make old sound in their first album The Dialogue. Now they`ve abandoned the keyboards, using only oscillators and patch cords, to play dirty oscillator punk songs. Sometimes they also play experimental compositions, pure noise or other nice shit.

The Language Lab (HK)
http://www.youtube.com/theLanguageLab
"The Language Lab" is a project led by visual designer Koo Park-kin and sound engineer Tse Kam-po. They believe that music is an inborn language and try to realize this by recording sonic experiments in varied environments. They would communicate in impromptu pieces with the unconventional use of musical instruments and audio equipment. They are convinced that a concert will come naturally in the process. Results from the current experiments show that this kind of music possesses features of such genres as movie soundtracks, avant-garde, dance, ethnic, rock and noise.

SUBLIMINAL LOUNGE #2: SURREALISME



SUBLIMINAL LOUNGE #2: SURREALISME
Music for Surrealist Movies

Live sound track performed by Swiss experimental trio DEER for silent surrealist films « La Perle » and « Monsieur Fantômas », with post-performance artist talk.

Live soundtrack:
DEER (CH)

Movie screening:
La Perle (Belgien 1929, 33 min), Henri d'Ursel
Monsieur Fantômas (Belgien 1937, 17 min), Ernst Moermann

Date: Sep-13, 2014
Time: 8:30 PM
Venue: VIP Room, HKICC Lee Shau Kee School of Creativity
Admission: Pay What You Want

Jointly presented by Re-Records &Twenty Alpha
Venue sponsor: HKICC Lee Shau Kee School of Creativity

About the movies:
La Perle was a surrealist film directed by Henri d'Ursel in 1929 under the pseudonym "Henri d'Arche". Henri d'Ursel was born in Brussels, Belgium. During the 1920s, he lived in Paris at the height of the surrealist and avant-garde movements. The film was based on a story by Georges Hugnet. In the film, a young man buys a pearl for his fiancée. He walks out of the jewelry store that opens onto a forest. He counts the pearls and realizes one is missing so he gets back to the store. On entering he catches sight of an alluring saleslady sitting on a showcase with her skirt lifted. On one of her stockings, close to the garter, another pearl necklace is tied. The young man takes it away from her. Outraged, the jeweler fires the assistant, who goes away with the man sitting on the handlebar of his bike. After this, the pearl is lost, found, lost again.

Monsieur Fantômas was a surrealist film made by Ernst Moerman in 1937. Shot on a shoestring budget on a beach and in an old cloister, the style of this scathing surrealist satire is immediately recognizable as that of the Feuillade serials. In top hat and tails, the Master of Crime (played by the future father of French singer Johnny Hallyday) tours the world in pursuit of the beautiful Elvire, punctuating his travels with mischief and acts to offend proper decency. The film encompasses amour fou, the meanders of dreams, fanatical anti-clericalism and a plea for subversion and adventure in "a world where nothing is impossible, where the miracle is the shortest route from our uncertainty to mystery

About the performer
DEER is a trio formed by bass clarinet players Hans Koch, Christian Müller and Silber Ingold, three prominent heads of the experimental music scene of Biel, Switzerland. Their playful interest in electroacoustic experiments is not only leading to filigree sound architecture, but also to heavy and dark soundscapes.

The trio DEER explores the miscellaneous sound colours of the bass clarinet and the different manners of playing it. Equipped with all kinds of electronic devices and effects, the three musicians take a close look at the sound and search for new depth in the interaction of the acoustic tone and the electronic way of examining it. In extension of the conceptual approach the trio also allows elements of improvisation in its play, thus connecting strictness with interacting freshness and stylistic playfulness.

About Subliminal Lounge
Subliminal Lounge is a series of movie screening and live performance event initiated by Re-Records & Twenty Alpha to interactively explore and recreate the connection between moving images and sound.

Noise Steve 陳史帝
Influenced by the rave parties popular in Taiwan at the end of the 1990s, Chen and some friends began to organize a series of do-it-yourself, guerrilla-style raves in such locations as a hair salon and outside a roast duck shop.

In 2002, Chen co-founded the Malt Fermentation Workshop in Taichung City, one of very few venues promoting experimental electronic music outside the capital city of Taipei. The group organized Taichung’s first noise art festival, Electroacoustic Counterattack.

1990 末期,隨著 rave parties 在臺灣漸受歡迎,陳史帝和幾個志同道合的朋友在本地的髮廊,甚至烤鴨店門口開始組織起一系列的革命性原創。在無意中觀賞了王福瑞的noise art 表演 Static Riot 後, 陳史帝決定更換方向,開始研討有聲藝術。 2002 年,在台中合創了Malt Fermentation Workshop,也成為首都臺北外最能發揚實驗電子音樂的場所。他們主辦了台中的第一屆有聲藝術節: Electroacoustic Counterattach。

Mei Zhiyong (CN)
Olaf Hochherz (DE)

About the Performers:

Dave Phillips / dp (CH)
www.davephillips.ch
dp re/searches and ponders existences and behaviourisms humanimalistically via audio de/construction, psycho-acoustics and sonic rituals. Sound as communication in direct and primal form, a tool of metaphysics, a conscience, an unrestrained language. Sound as a means to activate primordial shared emotions otherwise hidden by civilized experience. dp's work engages, invites existentialist rumination, demands awareness, endorses sentient and environmental e/quality and encourages intervention and responibility; therapeutical aspects are acknowledged; a form of release is delivered, a liberating cleansing, a sound catharsis opposing the omnipresent reduction of existence and putting us in touch with our sentient origins as with the realities of our times - dp rings in the era of humanimal.

Sonically active for over 25 years, dp has appeared on 150+ releases and has played near to 400 concerts in 40 countries.

Mei Zhiyong (CN)

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.

Olaf Hochherz is born 1981 in Wuppertal/Germany. He improvises with self build electronic instruments and is interested in unstable systems. His goal is not to control a technical aperture but to create an associative field. The sounds have their own live. His playing tries to keep them alive. He is interested in the effect acoustic activity has, the relation between surrounding environment and instruments, between abstract sounds and associations, between electrical and other worlds.
