The Krake weekend kicks off on FRIDAY daytime at Urban Spree with the legendary Krake Label Boutique, a small record fair bringing together Berlin’s underground music labels with around 50 imprints displaying and offering their work in the beautiful outside area. Next to DJ sets and surprise performances rounding off the day, the raffle, which has taken place for the last two years, is a chance to win electronic music production equipment and cool stuff once again!

The night opens with “The Quest for a Real Hardhob“. Originally shown at this year’s Berlinale, the silent animated movie on the dystopian sci-fi tip is completed by a live score from Andrew Millington on drums and cello, and Dave Senan on electronics. During the night expect extraordinary performances in the vast warehouse-like gallery space of Urban Spree, including a rare live performance from extreme vocalist Tim Exile, a multi-hour ambient jam by Transistors of Mercy, and a sound installation titled ‘Sonic Robots‘ by Moritz Simon Geist, whose robotic sculptures produce noises in combination with live techno. While the basement is taken over by DJs showcasing the labels involved in the market, the Concert Room focuses on bands, live acts and DJs experimenting with the darker side of techno. Constantly reinventing himself as a musician, T.Raumschmiere joins forces with 21 Downbeat – an electronic band including several artists with disabilities determined to ignore genre boundaries to arrive at their own explorative take on electronic music. Thomas P. Heckmann (OFFICIAL)plays one of his EBM-fueled techno sets in between AJA‘s psychosexual rhythmic noise and the incredible punk-techno duo COAL.

We open the festival at Urban Spree, an amazing venue which combines industrial aesthetics with a sweet, personal DIY flair. Besides having a world debut show by Transforma & Anno Stamm (alias Anstam) we are exceptionally proud that we could allure the UK based X-Ray Audio Project with their presentation of their research about the first ever existing bootleg culture, which developed in Russia in the 1940s, where music was illegally copied on used xrays stolen from hospitals. Apart from their presentation some rare pieces will be exhibited and a cut on an x-ray will be produced live.

Our weekend we will kick off on the two floors of Suicide Circus with a strong focus on the interface of techno and electro with punk.

For Saturday and Sunday we will use a new venue: Grießmühle in Neukölln, one of the most underground places of the Berlin scene today, rough, loud and dirty – but with the appeal of a place run by people with passion. During daytime you wll be able to browse through records ofselected electronic music labels, at night you will find the label’s artists playing on one of the many floors there. Additionally to the musical programming there will be other special offerings such as a DIY workshop for building your own snythesizer, a screening of “I dream of wires”, the legendary documentary about the history, demise and resurgence of the modular synthesizer, performances and much more.

Krake Festival 2015 Art Exhibition

For the whole week of the Krake Festival, the Krake team has set up an art exhibition at Urban Spree Galerie.

————————–————————–
The following works will be exhibited or performed:

DESTRUCTIVE OBSERVATION FIELD by Robert Henke

11015356_987489747951763_1077713057742230039_n

A bright mul­ti­color laser beam points at a black reflec­tive sheet of plas­tic hang­ing freely from the ceil­ing. Most of the light is absorbed by the plate, turned into heat. A small part is reflected to a white screen on the oppo­site side of the room. The heat cre­ates defor­ma­tions and induces struc­tural changes of the sur­face of the plate, which leads to dynamic and com­plex reflec­tion pat­terns. The laser beam scans over the sur­face of the plate in slow ran­dom move­ments and leaves traces of destruc­tion. The light pat­terns on the pro­jec­tion screen make the process vis­i­ble.
By adding more and more imper­fec­tions to the sur­face of the plas­tic plate, the result­ing pat­terns become increas­ingly more inter­est­ing until a cer­tain thresh­old is reached after which the process seems to reverse. More destruc­tion leads to less inter­est­ing results, end­ing ulti­mately after a long time with just a dif­fuse reflec­tion of light. The instal­la­tion becomes blind.

Special thanks to LaserAnimation Sollinger, Berlin, for their support.

MR-808 by Moritz Simon Geist

Sonic Robots per­form elec­tronic music — with mechanic robots! The wardrobe-sized MR-808 is a robotic drum instal­la­tion, which fea­tures eleven sounds of the infamous elec­tronic drum machine “TR-808”, which were replaced by mechan­i­cal actu­a­tors and phys­i­cal tone generators.

MUSIC VIDEO LOUNGE by THE29NOV FILMS

the29nov films films create a cosy situation for you to relax and have a glimpse into their endless archive of independent music videos.

DISCO GHOST by Julia Drouhin

This French artist liv­ing in Tasmania/Australia cre­ates choco­late records with hits from dead musi­cians, which can be heard and eaten by the audience.

Performing on Tuesday daytime and Saturday night only.

TESELA by ARISTIDES GARCIA (LASAL)

This interactive mapping sculpture is based on geometry exploration, and how using this path can disrupt our perception. Graphical patterns, visual illusions, dynamic geometry tesselations are algorithmically generated in realtime by the system with the help of the observer. 103 paper pyramids as a canvas to play with, changing the shape constantly like in an illusory metamorphic dream.

Exhibited from Wednesday onwards only.

KLANGWELLE by CHRISTIAN LOSERT

An installation featuring 10 motorized pendulums including 10 loudspeakers at their ends to discover the structure and spatial impact of dynamic waves within an audiovisual area.

Exhibited from Wednesday onwards only.

STILL DISCO/INVITATION by Anna-Luella Zahner

You are invited to experience a surreal club situation and become part of a seemingly social situation, which won’t develop as expected.
Since the installation can only be entered alone, please expect waiting time.

Performing on Friday daytime only.

The following artists will be show­ing their work on Urban Spree’s wall dur­ing the week.

We are thrilled to share with you a week of adventurous live sets, banging dj sets, thrilling body performances, sound, video and laser installations, a record label market, music production workshops and much, much more.

KRAKE OPENING
Urban Spree
Revaler Str. 99
doors open: 18:00
entrance fee: on donation

DAT POLITICS (sub rosa, chicks on speed) – live
5XL (magic power) – live
Huron (crazy language) – live
Subkutan (institut für Zukunft)
Axiom (crazy language)

We open our festival with a line up that is as wild and eclectic as the festival itself.
DAT POLITICS is by far one of the most interesting electric bands on the planet. They have given proof of this with their uncountable albums as well as with the remix for David Lynch lately. Most of all they are known for their hot-wired and partly chaotic live shows, which explain the cult-like enthusiasm that surrounds the french combo. 5XL is a collaboration of 5 young musicians, who are all involved in other successful musical projects and use this alias for live jams of unheard raw energy on meters of hardware machines. Expect some techno/electro madness coming from these young folks! HURON’s music is deeply rooted in classic Electronica and IDM. Gllitches, beautiful soundscapes, a strong melancholy feel and a subliminal dark touch are typical for his music. SUBKUTAN, one of the residents of Leipzig’s new techno institution Institut für Zukunft, and Crazy Language-boss AXIOM round the evening off with their dj sets.

Also we will open the art exhibition tonight, which will be open all week long.

DJ Flush (killekill)
FIST VAN ODOR (killekill)

The Wednesday night at Berghain Kantine is a classic. This is where the whole KILLEKILL story started and this night has been part of every edition of the Krake Festival so far.
For this year, we are cooperating with BODIES, a Berlin collective with a strong focus on the physical part of this thing we call techno. They have curated a fine selection of extreme body performances for this night. On the musical side of things we present live sets of INNER8, one half of DADUB, whose solo album earlier this year was a mindblowing trip from dark electronica to techno, and KEN KARTER, who melts down harmonies, numbers and mathematical codes like no other.
Later in the night the Killekill djs will take over: ALIENATA, who has built up a solid reputation with her extraordinary selection of dark styles and her outstanding sensibility for the crowd, Killekill boss hog DJ FLUSH, who is known for his driving sets ranging from abstract to banging techno, from Chicago house to acid, and FIST VAN ODOR. His music is deeply rooted in funk and UK Bass music and his mixes have names like “I smear butter on your belly” or “eating a horse”. He is a freak and he’ll teach you how to be one, too.

VINILETTE (the hum)
SÖREN MIEHE (our hobby is different)
BASTUS (our hobby is different)

On Fri­day, we kick off the Krake weekend! For this day we present some of the most chal­leng­ing char­ac­ters in con­tem­po­rary elec­tronic music. First to be men­tioned here are CASSEGRAIN & TIN MAN, a coop­er­a­tion between the Greek/British/Turkish/Asian duo Cassegrain and Tin Man from Vienna, who in their col­labs have com­bined both their dis­tinc­tive sounds — clas­sic con­nois­seur acid and mod­ern techno — to prove how fer­tile this com­bi­na­tion can be. With out­stand­ing releases on Killekill, Ostgut Ton as well as Function’s and Ed Davenport’s Infra­struc­ture lately, the trio has made their way into fame, and we are glad to present one of their rare live shows.
ELECTRIC INDIGO is undoubt­edly one of the most shin­ing peo­ple in techno music for us. Leav­ing the fact, that she is one the first major player in techno for over 20 years aside, she is also an artist search­ing for new chal­lenges and fields con­stantly, with­out ever lean­ing back and get­ting cosy in the com­fort­able couch of suc­cess. We are proud to present her coop­er­a­tion with the Aus­trian visual artist THOMAS WAGENSOMMERER, a sub­tle piece explor­ing the pos­si­bil­i­ties of organic growth and change in elec­tronic music.
MONDKOPF’s coop­er­a­tion with a French visual artist, the video col­lec­tive THE29NOV FILMS and many more will be on duty that night — indoor and outdoor.
