Autechre & R.Haswell @ Nijmegen NL

a concert in complete darkness – how to tell something about? well – hard to do so.

Autechre tried to avoid “drums” more then ever, about 500 people just listened to electronic music with closed eyes, since the lights were switched of during their concert. maybe it is just enjoyable that it is possible to have so many people listening to radically electronic music without that classic pop or drum approach. everyone concentrated on the music!

Andy Maddock played a very good DJ set of things I’d like to hear in a club – no 4-to-the-floor-stuff.. enjoyed it! need to shazam™ a lot.

I could compile these tracks:
Right Way – Abstract Elements
DBridge – I’m feeling cold
Hidden Turn – How to
Silver Waves – V (giant swan remix)
Aftermath – Rawtekk
Datach’i – 122122
Aqiuarian – Bad Feeling / Insulin (2 Tracks)

and Mr. Haswell did noises on his modular synth – his set ended after about 35mins. he likes to destroy beats if they come up. DIY punk.
enjoyed his set at Incubate as well.

LCDrone (Laura Sicault & Constantin Papageorgiadis aka Trap & Zoid)
Kai Niggemann (Paradeiser Productions) – Live

Modularsynthesizer (EMS SYNTHI AKS, Buchla 200e),Fieldrecordings, Geräuschchor, selbst gebaute Klangerzeuger und akustische Instrumente, …

Wir freuen und über Spenden bei freiem Eintriit

this evening is entirely dedicated to showcasing the sounds and improvisations that come exclusively from modular synths. the four musicians perform in various constellations, to complete the evening all artists will join together for a stunning jam session. 
donations are very welcome 

Constantin Papageorgiadis aka Trap & Zoid und Yoshio Machida arbeiten mit den seltenen Vintage Modular Synthesizern von EMS SYNTHI AKS. Sie werden einen Synthi 100 spielen und ein spezielles Interface zwischen zwei Synthesizern, das von Papageorgiadis gebaut wurde. Während Machida sein Instrument als Rhythmusmaschine versteht und damit Pattern kreiert, beginnt Trap & Zoid bei Null und baut progressiv einen einzigen evolutionären Strang, um den Synthi zu unterstützen.

Kai Niggemann arbeitet mit Buchla Modularsynthesizer und Fieldrecordings, Geräuschchor, selbst gebauten Klangerzeugern und akustischen Instrumenten, leitet das Theaterlabel “PARADEISER productions” zusammen mit Ruth Schultz, ist Mitglied von “The Dorf”, improvisiert mit “Great Big Noise” und gründete das Internet-Computermusik- “European Bridges Ensemble” (EBE) sowie das elektroakustische Duo “Resonator” mit. Er performt solo und mit Partner*innen, hat einen Lehrauftrag an der Kunstakademie Münster und gibt Musik-Elektronik-Workshops (“Löten unter Aufsicht”).

Yoshio Machida (JP) is well-known as an electronics artist and steelpan player. In his later work he focusses more on the use of analog modular synths which resulted in his latest solo album ‘Music from the SYNTHI’ on French label Baskaru in 2014. The album was made using only his SYNTHI AKS, without any effects and outboards, displaying a very organic sound. Using the flexibility and characteristics of SYNTHI, he improvises contemporary rythmic patterns, glith, clicks… without any usage and sounds from a computer. Machida studied minimal art, music and film at the Tama Art University. In the 1990s, Machida worked for an international cooperation in Asia and Africa. Machida’s first album Hypernatural (1999) had been featured with Brian Eno and Oval (band) on David Toop’s article about Generative music. In 2001, Machida started to play improvised music by Steelpan with computer program Max/MSP. In 2004, Machida founded an experimental music label Amorfon.

Trap & Zoid (BE) After playing rock’n’roll bass and upright bass for 20 years, Constantin Papageorgiadis is today a well-known figure in the EMS Synthi world, on both musical and technical sides. He serviced tens of EMS instruments, including the IPEM’s rare Synthi 100 in Ghent, and imagined an original way to expand their features that was great success and led him to be on regular and friendly touch with numerous Synthi users from around the world. He recently released a vinyl and uses to perform with his favorite suitcase as a one-human electronic solo project named Trap&Zoid. His live approach is to start from nothing, progressively create a single evolutive patch and support the Synthi through it. No computer, no preset, no cheating. Trap & Zoid recently released a new vinyl solo album ‘Synthi Lag’ which can be purchased at

LCDrone (BE) (various modular synths)
From Belgium we present to you the duo LCDrone. Enjoy the raw live sound of Laura Sicault and Constantin Papageorgiadis – aka Trap&Zoid, her SEM, his Synthis, some other gear (no computer of course!), a few effects and weird inspiration… You’ll be suprised of the end result!

14.11.15 Holly Herndon in Dortmund

Needed to tell them in advance to come – so I just told them me+1 – be there at exact 22:00 and free. So I did and on top of the Dortmunder U we all were in a white room – now time to start –

Holly Herndon has Mathew Dryhurst for all the live visuals and communication on stage, he moved all the GFX around and send messages typed in to us. is it loud enough? This is hand made! we are humans! Fuck the NSA even though it is sort of commonly used now – still and a lot of .. pure fun & enjoyment.
starting with the voice of her amazing co-singer. ending up with one extra song for her “solo” which is in fact her work – I could hear her original voice – not just the processed ones which added a nice subtle goodness to it!
never miss her, when you are near a chance to witness her performance. btw – there was also some nerdy stuff like that little machine that can listen to everything electronic and makes it audible. One of my highlights this year, thanks Dortmunder U for giving this high quality artist event to us for free (!!), thanks Holly Herndon!
Anyway – in case you never listened to her:

Hier ein Musiktipp: 
Nur eins – das war super.Holly Herndon

Achja, total wichtig – Holly fand meine Hose toll. Super ;)
