Vinyl Terror & Horror (DE) | Multiple deconstructed turntables and cut-up records

Vinyl Terror & Horror is a collaboration between Camilla Sørensen and Greta Christensen. "Our approach to music starts from a visual and sculptural practice. Turntable deconstruction and rearrangement of the vinyl media in all imaginative ways is an essential part of our music. We are working in the field of cinematic soundscapes with a high tolerance level of possible hi- fi disasters. Sentimental heartbreaking sequences where the opera singer is looping and the birds are singing backwards... until the breakdown of needles and chaos is taking over. Cut up and mistreated records looping and creaking from dust and sloppy treatment. Pick-up`s being pushed disrespectfully over grooves. records spinning backwards and forwards while played from multible pick-ups simultaniously. Meanwhile the lady in stilletoes just keep on walking down the stairs. Repetitive arrangements, dark sounds, neck breaking mixes, film-amateur sound effects,scratches, quieks, vinyls, terror and horror."

 

Hans Tammen (US) | Guitar-Controlled Live Sound Processing

Hans Tammen will perform "I hate Zero Crossings", a work that exhibits nonlinear feedback strategies to occasional create chaotic sonic behaviors. This feedback loop can go on for a while, and the performer occasionally interferes with the balance of power to give it a new direction, until at the end, as usual, that balance gets out of control. Current projects sometimes use sound input from other players to be processed, but the live sound processing is still controlled by guitar sounds.

Hilary Jeffery (UK) | Trombone

Music has been Hilary’s main activity since 1990 which started with a journey to the Sahara Desert, accompanied by a trombone. This journey and the sense of silent-space experienced there has been a continuous influence on his work ever since. Hilary’s work in music has included recording and playing live with many musicians and groups including (in roughly reverse chronological order): Zeitkratzer, Catherine Christer Hennix, Franz Hautzingers Third Eye, Splitter Orchester, Lysn, Jimi Tenor, High Birds, Kreepa, Black Galaxy, The Mount Fuji Doomjazz Corporation, Paul Dunmall Quartet and Octet, Moksha Big Band, The Barton Workshop, Apa Ini, Keith Tippett’s Tapestry, Band of Holy Joy, Sand, Earthling, Hugh Davies and Germ.

 

Ansgar Wilken (DE) | Cello & pedal

"This cello programme especially developed for 'Salon Bruit', works with the instrument as sound box, with the potential of its inner space, with the tonal multitude of feedbacks and also with the underlying danger of uncontrolled outbursts. The cello as an instrument is not only connected with a clearly defined musical genre but beyond that, with a clearly defined expectation towards its sound - but it can do differently. Unpredictability is not turned into a principle but welcome - tonal physicality doesn't need a dominating instrumentalist. All that counts in the end - the outcome - at its best: consequence."

 

Els Vandeweyer (BE) | Vibraphone

Els Vandeweyer is a Belgian vibraphonist & composer currently living in Berlin. In Portugal she co-founded the IMI Kollektief quintet. In Oslo she worked with Ingebrigt Haaker Flaten and Paal Nilssen-Love. In Chicago performing by invitation with Ken Vandermark among many others.

With her new repertory of compositions, combined with improvisations, Els can bring you in a remarkable sound world, far removed from that associated with a vibraphone. The result is rather flowing and energetic than abstract.

"Unafraid of tradition... Vandeweyer's vibes evoking the experimental zeal of the more adventurous 1960's Prestige and Blue Note sessions." – All About Jazz.

 

Jürg Bariletti (CH) | Acoustic-lab.-top-mobile
