Travis Egedy aka Pictureplane is a Brooklyn-based multimedia artist whose forays against the status quo have disrupted fashion, galleries, and music in kind. While his 2011 album, Thee Physical, explored sensation and human touch, his newest dives into more ethereal territory: the anxiety of daily life in an era defined by constant technological interaction and observation. But the 11 songs heard here — fleshed out using sonic scraps of industrial, darkwave, ’80s EBM, ’90s house — aren’t purely paranoiac. As the title implies, Technomancer is as much about rediscovering the magic in our relationship with our machines.

Technomancer was recorded across three years in Egedy’s garage, then finished in studios in New York and Los Angeles. He was also touring the world with the likes of Major Lazer and Crystal Castles, exhibiting his visual art in galleries abroad, and reading the works of Robert Bauval and Graham Hancock, men whose research in alt archaeology and ancient tech may help unlock truths about where humankind has been and, more importantly, where we’re headed. The two tracks featuring Skin Town’s Grace Hall (“Self Control,” “Live Forever”) deal with a controversial future that may already be upon us: where reality, even mortality, is able to be engineered.
But for all the eerie Vangelis-style ambiance (“Chaos Radical”), warped rave oddity (“Joyrider”), and distressing mechanized clang (“Death Condition”), Pictureplane’s latest is best defined by its title track. “Technomancer” finds our host grabbing the reigns of the beast, and suggesting that we do the same: “Manipulate your machine,” he sings over an electronic score that feels positively alive, “You’re a technomancer.”

Mobile Kino Presents: Blank City

1014234_642793015744423_1984392604_n

We have good new and bad news. Since the completion of Cheryl Dunn’s Everybody Street she and the distribution company Mercury Media have received a lot of interest from film festivals and have decided to hold off on public screenings until after the festival circuit. The film looks amazing and could do quite well so we wish the best of luck to Cheryl Dunn. This is good news for Cheryl but bad news for us as we now have to postpone our screening until a later date. The good news is that we are putting together a replacement screening of short films and documentaries all based on street photography. In place of Everybody Street Cheryl Dunn has offered Mobile Kino a 10min feature on the film to include in the new program. Also included we have stories and interviews with Vivian Maier, Mary Ellen Mark, Bruce Davidson, Ricky Powell and many more. This will be an amazing event taking place later in the month so stay tuned to Mobile Kino for more information.

 

Monday we continue with a replacement film called BLANK CITY.

Cheap rent, cheap drugs and plenty of artists. It has been an over used cliché a for many Berliners to compare New York in the 70s and 80s to today’s Berlin. But how true is it and how much do know about the art movements that came from one of the most creative periods in the city’s history? This week Mobile Kino presents BLANK CITY a new documentary exploring the ‘No Wave’ film and music scene that grew out of New York in the late 70’s. Director Céline Danhier’s interviewees Jim Jarmusch, John Waters, Steve Buscemi, Wild Style’s Charlie Ahearn, Lydia Lunch, Nick Zedd and many more.

Date: Monday 19th of August 2013

Cinema: Urban Spree (Revaler Str. 99)

Language: English with German Subtitles

Entry from: 19:00

Film starts: 21:45

“BLANK CITY tells the long-overdue tale of a disparate crew of renegade filmmakers who emerged from an economically bankrupt and dangerous moment in New York history. From the late 1970’s through the mid 80’s, when the city was still a wasteland of cheap rent and cheap drugs, these directors crafted daring works that would go on to profoundly influence the development of independent film as we know it today.

Directed by French newcomer Céline Danhier, BLANK CITY weaves together an oral history of the “No Wave Cinema” and “Cinema of Transgression” movements through compelling interviews with the luminaries who began it all. Featured players include acclaimed directors Jim Jarmusch and John Waters, actor-writer-director Steve Buscemi, Blondie’s Debbie Harry, hip-hop legend Fab 5 Freddy, Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth, photographer Richard Kern as well as Amos Poe, James Nares, Eric Mitchell, Susan Seidelman, Beth B, Scott B, Charlie Ahearn and Nick Zedd. Fittingly, the soundtrack includes: Patti Smith, Television, Richard Hell & The Voidoids, The Contortions, The Bush Tetras, Sonic Youth and many more.”

Opening of Anthony Lister’s exhibition “Sneaky Bit In”

Urban Spree Galerie presents “Sneaky Bit In“, a solo show by the Australian visual & street artist Anthony Lister. The Opening of the show will be on Friday, September 14th, 2018 in the presence of the artist.

Invited by Urban Spree as part of our Artist-in-Residence program, Lister spent 3 weeks at Urban Spree between August and September 2018 to create in situ a whole new body of large scale works, installations, media art, and a large mural.

For this residency project, Lister incorporated a large palette of references stemming from cubism, Picasso’s “Les Demoiselles d’Avignon” and “Guernica“, Alejandro Jodorowski’s “The Holy Montain“, African masks, religion, divination and tarot, Aboriginal trans women, and direct references to Damien Hirst.

Lister’s outdoor mural at Urban Spree is a variation and alternate narrative on the theme of the main painting of the exhibition, in a style reminiscent of Egon Schiele and incorporating elements of Picasso’s Guernica. The wall was executed with a 6m long extension pole, and signed with a paint-filled fire extinguisher.

Anthony Lister (b. 1979 in Brisbane) is a contemporary Australian-born painter and installation artist, best known for his merging of “high” and “low” cultural imagery. Particularly well known as a street artist, Lister is considered amongst the best in the field with graffiti art legend Banksy even commenting that Lister appears to piss great art in his sleep.

He studied at the Griffith Queensland College of Art and was further educated under mentor Max Gimblett in New York City. Lister helped pioneer the street art movement in his home city as a teenager and is considered Australia’s premier street artist.

Lister employs multiple media including charcoal, acrylic, spray paint, oil pastels to create his scrawling, figurative style.

Lister has exhibited nationally and internationally including at the Lazarides Gallery in London, Underdogs Gallery in Lisbon, New Image Art Gallery in Los Angeles, Robert Fontaine Gallery in Miami, Jonathan Levine Gallery in New York, Olsen Gallery in Sydney, Black Art Projects in Melbourne, Fireworks Gallery in Brisbane, and Allouche Gallery in New York City.

Lister currently lives and works between Sydney and New York City.

Uniform (+Greg Fox of Liturgy) • Wreck And Reference •

Dawn of the Dance and GreyZone Concerts & Promotion are happy to present you a night of experimental metal noise electronics

Uniform (+Greg Fox of Liturgy) + Wreck and Reference

Garden: ГШ / Glintshake / Shortparis DJ SET

Wake in Fright, the second full-length by the New York City duo Uniform, is a harrowing exploration of self-medication, painted in the colors of war. Following the Ghosthouse 12″, whose A-side Pitchfork called “their most relentless track yet,” vocalist Michael Berdan and guitarist/producer Ben Greenberg return with a new batch of even more punishing songs that incorporate elements of industrial music, thrash metal, harsh noise, and power electronics.
“This record is primarily about psychic transition,” Berdan explained. “The distress that these songs attempt to illustrate comes from a place of stagnation and monotony. This is what happens when old ways of thinking become exhausted and old ways of coping prove ineffective. Something must change or it will break.”
The characters Berdan brings to life in his lyrics quit using but have ruinous relapses (“Habit”) or struggle as their resolve crumbles (“Bootlicker”); they use alcohol to ease their insomnia but and are helpless when they get sober and stop sleeping again (“Night of Fear”); they’re existential misanthropes trapped in dead-end lives (“The Lost”). While the titles have been largely culled from the world of horror, thematically these songs have more in common with the works of Hubert Selby, Jr than Lucio Fulci. These are stories about people at the end of their proverbial ropes. Their old medicines are no longer effective and their old ways of living cause them nothing but confusion and despair. They are paralyzed by fear, regret, and self-doubt. This is either the darkness before the dawn or eternal night.
Greenberg sets these stories to menacing guitar and samples of literal sounds of war — the kick drums are bombs going off, the snares are gunshots. He drew the record’s immense sample library from action movies, Foley sound packs, field recordings, and more, and the result is devastating. The guitar is also as crucial as ever, and now as indebted Slayer as it is to Big Black. Greenberg conjures up massive riffs and shredding solos, pushing the band deeper into the metal world whose borderlands they’ve long stalked. Where the inner monologues of Berdan’s characters and Greenberg’s martial sonic palette collide, Wake in Fright finds its wrecking-ball power.
