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).

Michael Schmidt’s “Waffenruhe” reprinted

30 years after its original and only release in 1987, Michael Schmidt’s legendary and long out-of-print photobook “Waffenruhe (“Ceasefire“) – considered as the best photobook about Berlin at the time of the Wall – is now being republished by Walther Koenig and Stiftung für Fotografie und Medienkunst.

The photographic series was originally exhibited in Berlin in 1987 at the Berlinische Galerie in GropiusBau. In Waffenruhe, Schmidt shows West Berlin shortly before the fall of the Wall by combining portraits of youths with images of anonymous sites bordering the Wall and the Wall itself. As is characteristic of his work, it is the arrangement of the individual photographs and the use of high contrasts — the interplay and dialogue between the multi-layered images — that gives the images their distinct meaning, revealing the correlation between historical events and individual biographies.

Schmidt evokes a world of ruptures and absences that eschews a confident, comprehensive point of view. The images work with Schleef’s text to create a brusque, entirely individual perspective on the fragility of human existence.

This artist’s book – often included on lists of the most influential photographic books of all time – is once again being made available. Two versions are available, german or english.

In addition to the book release, the Volksbühne theater in Berlin is projecting Waffenruhe’s photographs and text on its façade. Curated by Thomas Weski, the projection will be on display every night (from darkness to midnight) until 13.03.2008.

About the Photographer: 

Michael Schmidt was born in 1945 in Berlin, where he died in 2014. His works can be found in national and international collections and have been presented in numerous solo and group exhibitions.

In 1976, Michael Schmidt founded the Werkstatt für Fotografie at VHS Berlin-Kreuzberg, which became a major forum for international discussions on photography in (West) Berlin. In 1987 he exhibited Waffenruhe at Berlinische Galerie. In 1988 the Museum of Modern Art, New York presented the work in the exhibition „New Photography 4″. In 1996 Ein-heit was shown for the first time at MoMA, New York under its English title U-ni-ty. This was the first solo-exhibition of a German photographer at MoMA since decades. In the same year, Ein-heit was presented for the first time in Germany at Sprengel Museum Hanover. In 1995, a first survey exhibition of his work was on view at Museum Folkwang Essen. In 2010 Michael Schmidt presented his comprehensive survey exhibition “Grey as Colour. Photographs since 2009” at Haus der Kunst, Munich. Lebensmittel (Food) was presented in solo exhibitions at Museum Morsbroich, Leverkusen (2012), Galerie im Taxispalais, Innsbruck (2013) and at Martin-Gropius-Bau, Berlin (2013).

Michael Schmidt participated in the 55th Venice Biennial in 2013, and the Berlin Biennial in 2006 and 2010. In 2014 the artist was awarded with the Prix Pictet for his series “Lebensmittel”.

The Foundation for Photography and Media Art with the Michael Schmidt Archive was founded in 1999, and since the artist’s death is organising and preserving the artist’s archive (www.archivmichaelschmidt.de). Thomas Weski, curator of the Michael Schmidt Foundation, is currently working on a retrospective of the artist’s work at Nationalgalerie Berlin in 2020.

Doldrums + Petra Glynt

Doors: 22:00

Supported by the amazing Petra Glynt

Coming up in the late-2000s noise scene of Montreal, electronic noise producer Airick Woodhead began his solo project Doldrums in 2010. Melding different aspects of electronic sequencing and noisy sample-based sounds with hypnotic pop structures, Doldrums quickly emerged in a series of random tracks, 7″ singles, remixes, and even a VHS collection of videos.

Doldrums released their new full-length E s c on June 30th, 2017. Mixed by Matthew Otto (Majical Cloudz), E s c also features collaborations with Petra Glynt and Tobias Rochman of Peleda.

Pink Waves

After a great resonance in 2016 Urban Arts Berin cellebrates this year International Women’s Day with the excellent music festival PINK WAVES with an all female line-up at the legendary Urban Spree!

PINK WAVES is a plattform for a diverse range of female artistic expressions including the dark and noisey side of popular music. We promote sound art, avant-garde & experimental music, but also pagan & ritualistic tunes as well as industrial & noise sounds produced by women and/or music projects that bring women to the front.

For us is very important to de-construct the meaning of femeninity in traditional sense. This is why our program supports also women who hold a femenine-masculine approach. The PINK WAVES artists can be soft and quiet but also laud, irreverent and rebellious. We encourage those women who brake the clitche of femminity and to the ones that represent the noir side of polular music.

PINK WAVES is a plattform where strong and talented women flourish for who they are. Let’s make some noise!!

LINE UP:

BURKAMACHINES 

(Germany) – Electronic Noise

Founded in 2010 in Berlin by female artists Chris Dreier (ex Tödliche Doris) and Ursula Döbereiner the noise duo initially played under custom-made white or black burqas and filled various galleries and venues with their aggressive industrial-elektro sound, occasionally using automatons. The band refers to noise, ambient and new music structures adding rhytmic patterns and tape mash-ups to their modular space trips.

CUBOP 

(Germany) – Body Analogue Electronics & Ritualistic Music

Cubop is one of the most talented avant-garde and ritualistic dark projects from Berlin. She has won a strong resonance in the fields of electro-acoustic and anolgue synthesis influenced by Delia Derbyshire, John Cage, Anne Gillis, COIL, Muslimgauze, SPK & Merzbow, among other interesting projects. Her works have being release by Lust Vessel (Japan), Hylé Tapes (Paris), Corpus Callosum (Leeds, UK) & the Urban Arts Berlin Label.

Her sonic focus are dream territories, dark tales, alchemical sound, sonic sculptures, filmic soundscapes, ritualistic music, dark ambient & noise. She often displays her proficiency at playing a variety of instruments such as the legendary MS20, the Dark Energy Doepfer, Bass and the Micro Brute. She has produced a large body of soundtrack work for radio, film and performance, and, as Cubop, as a solo artist in her own right.

At Pink Waves her new album “FLESH & DEMENTIA” will be presented live.

FAKE MISTRESS

(Germany) – Experimental Vocalism

Fake Mistress started as a singer of the dada-performance group The Fake Masters, but is now performing mostly solo. The classical trained voice is her instrument to impersonate various shapes of characters and emotions and thus creating a highly atmospheric music, evoking fragments of films, emotions and stories fusing it to a kind of modern symphony.

The music she composes and performs live is a mixing of field-recordings, her own recordings of instruments and cut-ups of old classical orchestra music vinyls that have been processed, using Linux and open source programms only (Ardour).

MARTA ZAPPAROLI (Italy) – Analogue Imporvisation

Italian experimental sound artist, improviser, performer, researcher and musician. She works and lives in Berlin since 2007. Her music mainly consists in strongly narrative sonic pieces that she builds using a wide variety of recording techniques, devices and selfmade microphones . She is interested on the boundaries and relations between real sound world ,vibration sound, noise pollution and inaudible sound . Although it could be qualified as abstract, Zapparoli’s music reveal an accurate sense of nativity, she building strongly narrative and sonic pieces live through improvisation with real-time tape manipulation as scratch, back and forth, cutting, mixing producing rough sounds.

Info: http://martazapparoli.blogspot.de/

N01R (Spain) – New Wave

N01R is the echo of a moment, nostalgia embodied in music, video and photography, trying to capture all those feelings in sonic waves. The topic of the songs is usually about space in connection with the human being, and how we as a humans see ourselves in the universe.

“Everything is sound, and everything influences us.”

It’s like transmit the memory of something from the past or a dream, a vision of something beautiful and blurred.

VIY – (UK) – Dark Industial Techno

Viy is Vera Bremerton’s wilder techno-industrial side. Viy takes Vera’s experimental vocals and laces them with hard, fast, thundering beats and swathes of distorted synths. By means of stacked up layers of screams and noise, Viy seeks to achieve almost unbearable aural intensity. Cathartic, Dionysian, uncompromisingly feminine, her performances are an occasion for the audience to reconnect with their truer instincts. Viy was born and bred in Italy, and is now based in London, where she’s constantly on the prowl for new sounds to sample. Her first album “Amoris Vulnus” wants to denounce sexual violence by recreating the feeling of terror and anguish suffered by the survivors; she’s now working on an project dedicated to women’s affirmative sexuality.
