Berlin : CTM.11 #LIVE!? : Preview

07:13 PM

What Fashionweek is for the Berlin fashion business, club transmediale festival is for the local music and art scene: nothing less than the unofficial but a bit late start into a new year. As its twelfth edition, CTM.11 will take place at various venues between February 1 and 6. This year the key theme is called #LIVE!? and hence all the upcoming gigs, installations, panels and much more will try to reflect and discuss “the aesthetic, societal and economic implications of the growing importance of real-time media, the live experience and of so-called ‘liveness'”. This is by the way a topic we coincidently already supported during the CTM.10 by more or less successfully trying to cover the festival with our live blog. Sister festival TRANSMEDIALE.11 devotes instead to the RESPONSE:ABILITY instead.

After last year’s highlights such as Apparatjik, Four Tet, Planningtorock or the Italians Do It Better! clan, the organisers have once invited an illustrious bunch of established and rising, national and international acts to Berlin. The 2011 cream includes a CTM Opening Night with Sleigh Bells of M.I.A.’s N.E.E.T. Recordings at Festsaal Kreuzberg; Hype Williams and Pariah on Thursday at the same venue; Friday’s big Hyperdub night at Panorama Bar – parallel to the dreamlike combination of MIT (photographed by Walczyna above), The Field, mysterious Mancunian newcomers Wu Lyf aus Manchester plus Gold Panda at Maria; and finally Siriusmo, Modeselektor, Girl Unit and Bok Bok on Saturday ibidem and at Chez Jacki. Of course, there will be once again a festival café and a CTM-exhibition – this year at HAU 2 and Kunstquartier Bethanien.

A festival pass for the CTM.11 only is € 80, one also including the TRANSMEDIALE.11 is € 150. Otherwise you can get yourselves day passes or tickets for each of the single events as well. All tickets are offered with granted concessions to pupils, students, those doing military or community service, unemployed persons and disabled persons. Please, find the online pre-sale and more information here.

Whereas the official festival compilation in cooperation with zero” is once again for free. You can download the 15 tracks by 15 artists here. In addition, there will be a warm-up weekend between January 28 and 30 at more than 70 Berlin venues. It’s called Digital Art + Sound Weekend and the name already tells you pretty precisely what you can expect. Don’t miss it either!

Cubic revolutions: Apparatjik live

01:22 PM

apparatjik-11

It’s not that we don’t like Josh Homme or Dave Grohl, we honestly do, but it’s a still refreshingly appealing idea to us to see a modern supergroup (a band formed by members of other already known and /or successful bands) without one of the rock heroes. Fortunately we have the chance to see such an act, when Apparatjik, a common project by musicians Jonas Bjerre (Mew), Guy Berryman (Coldplay), Magne Furuholmen (a-ha) and Martin Terefe with some audiovisual artists, the Eye On Committee, arrive in Berlin to perform for their very first time live on stage at CTM.10 aiming to overthrow the classic conception of a gig, what leads into one of the most remarkable nights in a long time.

While Damon Albarn’s pop identity Gorillaz are hiding behind computer generated projections or shadow plays of themselves and Pet Shop Boy Neil Tennant’s cubic mania makes him sing with a transparent one on his head, Apparatjik take the next step by locking themselves in a big cube with an edge length of about 10 ft and dissipating the traditional stage-audience constellation by placing their came-to-life Rubik dream in the hall’s center.

There it stands alone and silent on the second floor of the WMF when the public is allowed to step inside the room. On the plane strained over the cube’s side complex, black-and-white scientific diagrams, which were already shown on the bands website, are gleaming and the speakers are transmitting a strange sound like wind blowing through a cave grot. Fascinated and with high expectations people are grouping around the strange object in their middle, which seems to have put them under its spell.

The scene reminds of a cult moment or the landing of a spaceship until it, and with it the room, turns suddenly blue and light parallelograms and triangles appear and disappear on the screen. Within the moment of realization and mentally adapting the cube again gets enlightened by a white flashing light inside of it synchronized to a heart, cutting synth beat and percussions, which just started to play. The concert begins. But where’s the band?

The light becomes steady and one can hear Jonas Bjerres voice resoundingly and softly laying itself above the rising and then falling music. On the screen wildly jumblede shadows of playing musicians get recognizable. Apparatjik are inside the cube! Then chain gears are screened – an apt metaphor for the band’s name, an alteration of the almost silent working, conflict avoiding ideal Soviet bureaucrat, the apparatchik.

Most of the animations were already shown online, for instance the cut out heads flaring over colourful landscapes. Later the giant faces merge into each other until they are puppet-like disfigured and alienated. In between one gets a lot of more eye candy, sometimes with the shadows of the artists standing inside the prison prism looming on them, sometimes without them, so one can hardly tell, how many people are really inside and what’s their current position. In addition the trapped-ins are constantly changing their hats and walk around in a circuit.

Thereby Apparatjik reduce the omnipresent idea of the pop star as a white screen or projection surface for the ideals, dreams and wishes of his / her / their fans to absurdity. Tonight it’s the artist and star itself, who becomes a literally a projection. And with the same meticulousness and effort, with which normally the perfect image of the star gets established, it gets  desconstructed tonight falling apart into hundreds of different single perspectives, each owned by one person in the audience placed in the 3D constellation. On top of it, it’s Bjerre (if he’s indeed behind the plane), who sings the following to it: “Is that what you wanted? Did you choose?” (Supersonic Sound)

But apparently the commercial mass phenomena  called pop star is well known to Berryman, Furuholmen and – with lowered sights – Bjerre – from their daily band life at Coldplay, a-ha or Mew. And after all it’s their skillful sense for pop as a musical concept, which they obtained and which made them able to not only realize this project, but reach their first-bands’ level of success.

Mainly they are playing pleasing up tempo pop rock songs with key synthesizer additions and Bjerre using the more higher realms of his voice. It sounds a bit like German band Polarkreis 18 in the end and is surely not half as visionary as their visual ideas but it leads to a bunch of both catchy and sophisticated songs “Snow Falls”, “Arrow And Bow” or “Antlers”, which wouldn’t just only be great singles, but do unfold some impressive forces beyond radio airplay.

In Berlin the whole extravaganza ends after a bit more than half an hour with breaking with Watzlawick‘s first axiom of communication by proclaim the “End of Communication“. Afterwards all spectators have to leave the room and the cube again so it’s still disputable whether Apparatjik challenged one to get involved in the project or to perform a final iconoclasm when Bjerre sings, “You can’t hide in the shadows!” (Arrow And Bow)

Visit the Youtube channels of The Mewing Kitten and RW23102009 for further and additional, filmed impressions of the gig. Apparatjik’s album We Are Here is available through their webseite, put you’ll have to find the link there first. Have fun!

From January 28 to February 7 the CTM.10 (club transmediale) will take place in Berlin. Through the whole time, aufgemischt! will keep you up-to-date and will share some first impressions directly from the festival with you. TEXT & PHOTOS: Thomas Vorreyer

Samstag, 30.01.2010, 21 Uhr: Der erste vollständige Tag des CTM.10 hat uns erst nach Sonnenaufgang wieder in unsere Betten fallen lassen und deshalb folgt mit Verspätung eine kleine Rekapitulation der zurückliegenden Nacht.

Mit gleich drei Bühnen wartete das WMF auf, wobei die dritte mit Andy Blake hinter dem DJ Pult unter einigen Publikumsschwankungen. So war der Raum etwa wie leer gefegt als in den ersten Morgenstunden sich alles vor die Hauptbühne drängte, als Janine Roston alias Planningtorock (Bild oben) ihr neues Album Planet 9 live vorstellte. Eindringlich und mit allerhand Mystik aufgeladen zog die Künstlerin die Anwesenden regelrecht in ihren Bann während hinter ihr in slow motion u.a. eine Blonde Frau ihre Haare um sich wirbelnd durch einen Wald sprang – wohl auch wegen solcher Visualisierungskonzepte und einiger Klanganalogien kollaborierte Planningtorock zuvor mit The Knife und Mt. Sims beim Soundtrack zur Darwin-Oper Tomorrow, in a Year. Mit der Show von Karin Dreijer-Anderssons Kunstfigur Fever Ray kann sich Planningtorock jedenfalls durchaus messen lassen.

Bereits zuvor hatten übrigens Felix Martin und Al Doyle von Hot Chip, mit denen Roston auch für die Aufnahmen von Planet 9 zusammengearbeitet hatte, am selben Ort aufgelegt.

ctm10-29-01-wmf-9-glass-candy

Im Obergeschoss begann zur selben Zeit die Italians Do It Better! Nacht auf der zweiten Bühne. Den Anfang machten wie gewohnt Desire mit Sängerin Megan, Schlagzeuger Natty und Johnny Jewel am Synthesizern, gefolgt von Jewels zweiter Band Glass Candy mit Ida No, während Mike Simonetti vor und nach den Auftritten auflegte. Wurden die Megan und Ida noch zuvor vom Festivalpersonal – laut Eigenaussage – als “American princesses” bezeichnet, so wurden sie jetzt vom Publikum umso euphorischer Empfangen. Jewel hatte seinen Beats noch etwas kräftiger gestaltet und die beiden Damen wandelten die angestaute Wut ausnahmslos in eine energetische und agile Performance um. Da scheint es kaum verwunderlich, dass sich die Italians-Crew mit ihrer beinahe halbjährlichen Reisen nach Berlin eine lebhafte Fanbase erspielt hat.

Ein ausführlicher Bericht folgt in den nächsten Tagen samt zweier Interviews mit Ida No und Mike Simonetti. Im Anschluss findet sich die Fotogalerie zur Nacht und das Line-Up für den heutigen Abend im WMF.

Friday, January 29, 8 pm: Could you imagine a real festival without mud? Hardly likely I guess, so even in January Berlin welcomes the CTM.10 and its international audience with tons of mud slush on its slippery pavements. Too bad one missed to bring a pair of gumboots!

After the CTM was already yesterday night officially openend at HAU2 with performances by Jacob Kirkegaard, Transforma and Hiroaki Umeda –  in cooperation with the CONTEXT Festival Anästhesie der Gefühle” -, the festival starts it’s programme at the former Hungarian cultural center .HBC with the A MAZE. Interact festival (see above), that aims to combine music and art with the electronic video game culture.

Around 6 pm the place is still occupied by bustling construction works,  so I use my time to be one of the first persons ever to wage trying out the salientsound project. Dressed in a rubber tunic and standing on a plateau in a dark room a song from Atom TM’s new album is played to my ears through a stereo system, but from the time to time parts of the track, too, are transmitted onto my neural cortex via ultrasonic by a computer system named PURE (Pulsed Ultrasound Remote Engine) – so I can hear sounds which, considered in a physical sense, aren’t existing as sounds. During the experiment the probands have to press a red buzzer in front of them whenever they think that PURE got switched on.

Although I am always right each of the four times I press the button, I can merely feel any difference between the acoustic and the ultrasonic signal. Indeed PURE seems to be an interesting system with great opportunities, so expect some proper coverage on it on this site around Monday.

Leaving the dark chamber I follow the corridors to the various video game art of A.MAZE. One wall is covered categorization and chronicle of popular music video games installations from the electronic Stone Age to now, while the festival visitors can act as the Beatles in a current commercial video game or play karaoke in a shower next door.

From the variety installations especially two should be highlighted: The first is the Spatial Soundsculpture, where you create melodies and sounds with a video camera reading black-and-white pixel codes – like the qode code used for cellphones – on a white wall, the second one is called Ludic Sound Play (see above), where you lead a ray over a 2D-matrix, on which enlightened frustums embodying the instruments / melody sequence are placed.

Just on 8 pm I leave the .HBC heading to the next S-Bahn station to go to Hallesche Ufer. On my way I pass the building at Spandauer Straße 2, where further installations and events of the CTM.10 are located. But my way goes to the HAU2 at Hallesche Ufer, where the CTM.10 Opening Night Reprise with a rerun of last night’s programme is about to start.

The first performance is by Danish sound artists Jacob Kirkegaard and it’s simply fantastic: Kirkegaard went to the sand deserts of Oman to find the so called singing (or booming) sand there, which he’s now presenting in his performance Sabulation with some fascinating black-and-white video recordings of moving sand scarps at dunes. He backs these clips with sometimes loud and hollow droning, sometimes rustling and roaring audio recordings from the same place. Again and again the spectator’s eyes are looking for a steady consistent spot in a sea of falling sand to hold fast onto, but within seconds the just now secure piece get’s hit by a new stream and falls deep into the abyss while the sound is menacingly rising. It’s an endless cirlcle in which even the most beautiful sand reliefs get deflate after some time and the scarp is throwing constantly changing shadows like human faces on the screen.

Seldom both the beauty and the transience of the Sein were as stirringly reproduced as they get here by Kirkegaard with some simple grains of sand representing mankind.

Operators by Berlin’s art collective Transforma follows and creates to massive basses a hectic flood of pictures, in which a chaotic Pong game vanishs into a half-documentary view of a masked person performs with neon lamps (the Pong bars) and variously moves, examines and throws away coloured glass and metal sheets.

The program ends with Hiroaki Umeda’s Adapting for Distortion. At 11 pm the night program at the WMF will kick off with Planet 9 and Italians Do It Better!, see the complete line-up below:

Floor 1: Planningtorock (UK/DE), Felix Martin & Al Doyle (Hot Chip, Dj Set, UK), Jackson (DJ Set, FR), Mount Sims (US)
Floor 2: Glass Candy (US), Desire (US), Mike Simonetti (US), Noot (CA/DE), DJ TV DiSKO (CA/NZ)
Lounge: Andy Blake (UK)

CTM.10 goes “OVERLAP”

05:14 PM

ctm 10

When a festival begins on January 28, you can hardly still call it the actual begin of the music year but in terms of the CTM.10 (club transmediale) it feels exactly like this. For eleven days – it will end on February 7 – and the eleventh time the festival will take place in Berlin, once again together with the transmediale.10 of course, which starts on February 3 though.

Equipped with the new theme “OVERLAP – Sound & Other Media” CTM.10 is going to explore and discuss the limits, risks and opportunities of interference and mergence of music, arts, media and economics with an again remarkable and diverse line-up. Center of this year’s edition will be the newly opened club WMF near Alexanderplatz. As usual collaboration will be a big part of this event, too, so – among others – the festivals  “Anästhesie der Gefühle” (CONTEXT Festival # 7) and A MAZE. Interact (festival for the Convergence of Games, Art and Music) will interfere with the CTM.10.

That guarantees a great number of highlights. For example Italians Do It Better! will appear with Desire, Glass Candy – playing probably new songs(!) – and Mike Simonetti at WMF on January 29, while on the same night and at the same club The-Knife-collaborators Planningtorock and Mount Sims will meet a Hot Chip DJ Team with Felix Martin and Al Doyle. On January 31 Geert-Jan Hobijn / Staalplaat Soundsystem, Ilpo Väisänen and Mika Vainio will invite everyone to their performance Yokomo-Pro, including 30 cars in the roundabout around the world famous Siegessäule.

The next day will see the mysterious Apparatjik (by now we already know that it’s Coldplay-bassist Guy Berryham, A-ha-keyboarder Magne Furuholmen, songwriter/producer Martin Terefe and Mew’s Jonas Bjerre) playing their first ever live show at WMF. Beneath these events UK electro heroes like Four Tet, Brackles, Joker, Scuba and Sinden will appear all over the festival, as well as Holy Fuck, Drop the Lime, Ryoji Ikeda, Schlachthof Bronx, OM, The Modern Deep Left Quartet with numerous famous guests and many more. Jacob Kirkegaard, Keiji Haino and Charlemange Palestine will even perform twice during the festival days, while Dan Deacon will play an exclusive European gig.

And of course the Berghain is involved, too. Here a festival-closing ‘Dutch night’ featuring Joris Voorn and Edwin Oosterwal will be celebrated, while at the same time over at HKW Auditorium visitors can enjoy music and art from China.

All in all not less than 20 events and club nights will take place on eleven days at eight different locations. The festival will be complemented by a huge daytime programme at .HBC, where the CTM Festival Café and – from February 5 to 6 – the Creative Independents Network Market will be located as well.

We to recommend a compilation presented by De:Bug and zero” for the festival including 13 representative tracks and a trailer for Richie Hawtin‘s tour documentary ‘Making Contakt‘. You can download it until February 7 for free here. The whole movie will be premiered on February 3 at Kino Babylon as part of the CTM.10.
