CARLO DOMENICO VALYUM

…“After years of constant work on the development of his machines in February of ’37, Carlo Domenico manages to intercept anomalous audio/video electromagnetic waves. This important finding will be all that remains as a real testimony to his enormous work as a researcher and inventor. No other documents or inventions, to provide evidence of Carlo Domenico’s realisations, have so far come to light; including his much sought after secret diary and personal notes
Since 1939, news of him has become evermore a mystery. Some documents testify to his presence in various places at the same time, creating a sometimes confused map with many question marks but confirming his ability of physical and temporal bilocation,
At the end of August 2014, in Berlin, the existence of the briefcase containing the material intercepted in 1937, recorded on to VHS in the 70s, is casually discovered. And what is immediately clear is that Carlo Domenico Valyum in February 1937 had intercepted and further recorded electromagnetic waves coming from future Italian television broadcasts over a period of time between 1976 up until December 9, 1989, the day before his alleged death.
To date, all the documents are filed together along with the analogue copy under the title Dossier Carlo Domenico Valyum“.

T.RAUMSCHMIERE

Marco Haas started his musical career as an inventor.
First, he invented a framework, and then himself. Initially, the record company founded by him and Marcus Stolz in Heidelberg served as a mere vehicle for the recordings of his band “Stormbow”. It was the year 1997 and “Stormbow” was an eminently talented band with Marco Haas on drums – one of several eminently talented bands, however, to be found in Baden-Württemberg, the Palatinate, the Ruhr region. Unique, on the other hand, was that newly minted vehicle called “Shitkatapult”.
In 1998, Marco Haas relocated his life and label operations to Berlin – and to the world of electronic music, which he took into his dark heart and as an opportunity to rename himself after characters of a William S. Burroughs story: the Dreamcops, translated into 50’s German as “Traumschmiere” and marked for a new tomorrow by a smartly placed period. T.Raumschmiere was born, and a bold new chapter of electronic music from Berlin was being written. His first full-length releases on Shitkatapult were dedicated to the darkly charged traces of an electronic music that combined bass drum and ambient, snottiness and greatness: Stromschleifen (Shitkatapult, 2000), Zartbitter (Shitkatapult 2002). At the same time, some 12″es were spotted on Cologne’s Kompakt imprint: Boltzplatz (Kompakt 2000), Musick (Kompakt 2001). The latter were big rave news with a terrific sawtooth confidence, an iconized rock masculinity that didn’t only go all jolly and funny, but also big and serious.
On Kompakt, the real shit always pointed more towards Wolfgang Voigt, to the realm of inventions. In 2002, Marco Haas as T.Raumschmiere topped off this era with a milestone ambient double album on the it-label at the time, Chicago’s Hefty, rated artistically worthwhile and endowed with yet another clearcut name from the treasure chest of awesome inventions: Anti (Hefty 2002). Worldwide tours followed quickly.
And it’s precisely here that the next stunner drops: the man, not a studio nerd (although he is), but first and foremost an event beyond compare, a performer extraordinaire who puts rave and techno, rock and roll, live and crass and black and dark all into one word, one riff like never before, in an endless series of smashed tables, exploded mixing desks and open mouths. A star was born. Self-made and crazed-out. The whole shebang got consolidated on a Shitkatapult album, cobbled together from the most important material of the aforementioned releases and one ingenious claim: T.Raumschmiere – The Great Rock N Roll Swindle (Shitkatapult, 2003). A pretty big whopper in the techno circus.
Freak-outs ensued. Daniel Miller had to have it and T.Raumschmiere got signed on Novamute, the club outlet from London’s Mute label, which was just about to swim towards the EMI shark, or rather whale belly. T.Raumschmiere was in the right place at the right time, a big label with towering fellows such as Luke Slater, Plastikman, Speedy J, Motor, Cristian Vogel and so on and so forth. T.Raumschmiere scored a mega hit with Monstertruckdriver (Novamute, 2003) and became a staple in the line-ups of all the essential clubs and festivals.
But by the time his second Novamute full-length Blitzkrieg Pop (Novamute, 2005) came around, he was already sick of it and presented a dumbfounded audience with a rock-primed album full of songs and riffs that carved out their niche somewhere between Nick Cave, Nine Inch Nails and Bohren, also relaunching T.Raumschmiere as an actual live band.
Quite honestly, many were disapointed with the new rock paradigm and the tattooed insolence. Where’s our Sawtooth Rave King? It led right to the demise of EMI, a logical consequence among others. T.Raumschmiere released two more full-lengths on Shitkatapult… the dramatically underrated ambient masterpiece Random Noize Sessions Vol.1 (Shitkatapult, 2006), and his most-accomplished rock album I Tank U (Shitkatapult, 2008). But the fans were still demanding the “Monstertruckdriver” and a T.Raumschmiere trio bravely battled its way through gigs and tours. The next 5 years happened off-road, outside of the mainstream. And the ever-cooperating Marco Haas focussed on his studio work, especially for others such as Dieter Meier of Yello fame, Andreas Dorau, Fraktus, Ofrin or Barbara Morgenstern. In doing so, he also devotes himself to the depth of the technology and its systems. And constantly reinvents himself in the process.
In 2016, Shitkatapult sub label “Albumlabel” presented a pretty big ambient album without a tilte, which Haas recorded together with friend and colleague Ben Lauber (also known as drummer for the T.Raumschmiere band, Dendemann, Olli Schulz or as orchestral arranger and hero of projects). Marco Haas on a mission! Two full-lengths emerge from his collab with Ulli Bomans aka Schieres under the Shrubbn!! monicker (Echos, Shitkatapult 2012, and Europa, Shitkatapult 2016), alongside remixes for Dave Gahan, Warren Suicide or Apparat (for which Shrubbn!! also played support slots in Europe). A series of concerts with the exceptional Jazz/Noise guitarist Caspar Brötzmann (a collaborative 10″ will be released in April 2017 via Shitkatapult) furthered T.Raumschmiere’s steady quest for uncharted terrain. And didn’t exhaust the artist, but rather exploited full potential.
May 2017 will see Cologne’s Kompakt releasing his new, epic solo album called Heimat. Back to the roots – but also into heaven! This new full-length presents another side of T.Raumschmiere, which was always present, but never got much airtime: the artist, the author – the composer with the crystal-clear sound. A wonderful techno album that neither excludes Ambient, nor gets reduced to a constant ass kicking. It’s perhaps the best recording from this man who asks so deeply, so extensively, so much. And at some point even answers.

JD ZAZIE

Born in Bolzano (IT), JD ZAZIE is a DJ, avant-turntablist and sound artist based in Berlin. Coming from a DJ and a radiophonic background JD Zazie has explored over the years different approaches of real-time manipulation on fixed recorded sound.
In her work she redefines DJ and electroacoustic activities. As a solo performer, in small groups or large ensembles she moves in an area which is constantly stretching the borders of what is supposed to be DJ mixing, free improvisation and composed music.
Intended as music instruments CDjs, turntables and mixer are her tools to mix the specific sound-sources she plays (mostly electronic music, electroacoustic music, musique concrète, field recordings and improvised music).
The typology of the sound-sources varies from already existing audio publications and sound effects, to self recorded audio files – as live-set and field-recordings -, to selected pre-mixed material. Juxtaposition, decontextualization, fragmentation, repetition, sonic texture, scratch and error are elements of the grammar adopted to relate, organize and rearrange the sound material.
In her sound installations she explores everyday life, refers to urbanism and relates to sound atmosphere.
She is a member of the Italian label Burp Enterprise and co-runs Staalplaat Radio.
She has participated in numerous exhibitions and events including Simultan festival (RU), Berlin Atonal (DE), All Ears (NO), Heroines of Sound (DE), Reheat festival (AT), High Zero festival (US), Music Unlimited #27 (AT), Tuned City Bruxelles (BE), Open Provocation festival (UK), Festival Rue du Nord (CH), Audiograft 2012 (UK), Echtzeitmusiktage 2010 (DE), STEIM’s Turntable Night #7 (NL), Avantgarde Festival Schiphorst (DE).

S13 (Secret Thirteen)
S13 aka Justinas Mikulskis is the DJ, curator, promoter, journalist and the mastermind behind the acclaimed experimental music and art platform www.secretthirteen.org . Having started as the producer of ethereal and multilayered drum’n’bass he soon discovered much broader horizons and immersed in the world of experimental /contemporary music, jazz, noise, fieldrecordings, industrial and other genres pushing the boundaries of our sonic perception. However, in his DJ sets and mixes S13 weaves all this diverse palette into a coherent whole, thus constructing interesting sound narratives with unexpected stylistic twists, radical mood swings and powerful, sometimes even surreal atmospherics. Strict rhythmic patterns might be suddenly overturned by abstract drone voyages or disengaged improvisations dismantling the common musical structures.
The recent live achievements of S13 are also quite telling. Having performed in the major Lithuanian festivals and shared the stage with such electronic music projects as Esplendor Geométrico, Emptyset , Demdike Stare , Lebanon Hanover , Polar Inertia , Perc, he recently played in Arma17 gig in Moscow next to Mika Vainio , Fennesz, Atom ™ and Berlin Atonal next to Subtext Records’ artists. The rich musical background allows Justinas to constantly surprise his listeners and always reinvent himself for the new sound researches. It is also reflected in his mixes for such concept music platforms as Electronic Explorations, Experimedia , A Strange Isolated Place , Headphone Commute , Modyfier’s Process mix series and a few others.

INNER8 (Undogmatisch / Farmacia 901)
Inner8 is Daniele Antezza, a multi-faceted thinker and electronic music producer, member of Dadub duo, sound engineer at Artefacts Mastering Studio and Undogmatisch co-founder, whose regular invocation of the term praxis begins to hint at his creative aims: a primary synthesis of contemplation and action that, in turn, encourages a secondary and entirely unpredictable set of syntheses dependent upon the listener’s unique interpretation. Though the Inner8 moniker has been in existence for several years as a private nickname for, as Antezza puts it, his “experimental anarchist sounds,” a full-length LP is just now surfacing which will reveal just how much this project has to communicate.
Daniele also takes pride in the ritualistic quality of Inner8’s live sets; a mobile laboratory of dynamic tension in which his theories manifest as massive physical vibrations.

RETINA.IT (Semantica / Hefty Records / Glacial Movements)
Retina.it (Lino Monaco and Nicola Buono), is born in the first half of 90’s.This duo,placed near the Vesuvio (Naples), explored all the capabilities of analogic synths since the beginnings, developing an its own idea of sound.
The undifferentiated manipulation of sounds extracted from modular and digital synths or objects / environment sound’s recording, leads this original duo to a continuos research of a sonic identity.
Retina.it’s music has been released from labels such as Hefty records (Us) , Mousikelab (It), Flatmate/Storung (Spain) and Glacial Movements (It). They have worked with different personalities of music business and visual arts, such as John Hughes, Marco Messina, Claudio Sinatti, Gabriella Cerritelli, Giorgio Li Calzi , Red Sector A. Moreover, the deep live performing activity has led Retina.it to share important stages of International contest (such as Storung, Sonar…) with prestigious artists like Kraftwerk, Matmos, Telefon Tel aviv,T.A.G.C., Rechenzentrum , Oval, Noto, F. Bretschneider, Plaid, Apparat, Biosphere and many more.

HONZO (3TH Records / Haunter Records)
Davide’s new Honzo project born out of his keen interest in human psychology (primary emotions like fear, anger, sadness, which are common for all humans of all cultures) and desire to reveal the bipolarity of his musical expression. By incorporating submerged futuristic-breakbeats, haunting cinematic soundscapes, cutting edge modulations and the whole dark palette of sonorous sounds, Davide is figuratively painting a dramatic, yet post-apocalyptic and to some extent brutal and hopeless world’s fragment. With his distorted, drony and hallucinatory recordings Davide is definitely building a new musical perspective to techno music. It can be heard at Honzo’s debut 12″ record “In A Bipolar Disorder” which was released in the late 2013. February 2015 will be marked by his new record on 3TH Records. Moreover, Honzo is also working on new material which is planned to be released on Haunter and Arboretum labels.

SUBKUTAN (Vertigo / IfZ)
No pianos, scarce vocals, no light – nevertheless a tapestry of sound that reaches deep beneath the skin. As co-organizer and resident of Vertigo, Subʞutan has quickly made his mark on Leipzig’s electronic music scene and has expanded upon facets of music that, until now, have been painfully missed. His name stands for the melancholic and dark sounds of techno, going beyond the experimental to where a 4/4 pulse finds its place. In Subʞutan’s sets, hard, dry kickdrums stomp tirelessly through a post-industrial tristesse, behind which you can always clearly hear the beating of a human heart.

FAX (Arboretum)
Italian artist, born in 1987, lives and works in Berlin, Germany.
His works encompass from Vjiing, Audio/Visual Interactions, Mapping, Interactive installations to Scenic-design and investigate mostly on the decomposition of micro/macro cosmos.
In 2013 he also founded, together with Marco Berardi (Mogano) and Giuseppe Bifulco (Drøp) the Records Label Arboretum, a cooperative platform for Audio/Video experiments.

VALENTINA BARDAZZI (Undogmatisch)
Valentina is a painter.
“True perfection does not exist, the sense of beauty comes from imperfection.” In the attainment of perfection, there is always the need for some elements of ugliness and of madness. When the ugliness is there, it is often overlooked, either intentionally or unintentionally, but perhaps when it is overlooked, true perfection is obtained.
