Requiem for Tschernobyl

The Tschernobyl Disaster was a catastrophic nuclear accident that occurred on 26 April 1986 at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in Ukraine (then officially the Ukrainian SSR), which was under the direct jurisdiction of the central authorities of the Soviet Union. An explosion and fire released large quantities of radioactive particles into the atmosphere, which spread over much of the western USSR and Europe.

The Chernobyl disaster was the worst nuclear power plant accident in history in terms of cost and casualties. It is one of only two classified as a level 7 event (the maximum classification) on the International Nuclear Event Scale, the other being the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster in 2011.

A dive into the past… Augsburg and Poznan concerts.

The Echo Kammer concert was characterized by great atmosphere, friendly organizers and interested public.
Really thanks to Emerge Attenuation-circuit and Brezenstudio for hosting us..
The overall mood I felt was of a meeting. The public was not so numerous but very concentrated on what the artists were performing.
Also a great feedback to Pavel Aleshin(Re-drum) and Chris Sidgell(B°Tong) who performed together with us in this night. The concerts were played into Ganze Backerei, autonomous space managed by Rote Hilfe, the space is a centre who unites communist, anarchist in Augsburg with a program of lectures, debates and also concerts(like the monthly meeting in which we played).

During the travel to Augsburg we got also an unexpected proposal for a concert into a new cultural centre in Poznan. We had just a few days notice to prepare the whole gig but the result was satisfying in many aspect. The city seems to have a particular care for art and culture and we could feel the presence of a scene who spreads experimental and avant garde music/sound art.
The cultural center Amarant hosted our concert that was enriched by a good sound system, video projections(created by Hmtl://S) and a public who was completely immersed into our soundscape.
Photos and a video extract of the concert are available also for this gig, courtesy of Patryk Lichota.

Concrete Cosmos live in Augsburg(28.03) and Poznan(02.04).

echo kammer

Concrete Cosmos will take a little break from the usual appearance in Berlin events by playing in Augsburg(South Germany) and Poznan(PL).

The two concerts will have a common thread with the usual coexistence of drones, noises, ambients.
For this live new session of field recording have been realized. Those were an attempt to gather as much as possible natural effects like reverberation, echoes. The presence of digital effects on these concrete sounds is minimal.

Aekre will experiment on sound synthesis, along a structure of samples and electroacoustic sounds.

The visual side is a rework of old experiments with camera and light, paintings and filters made in early 2014 for a performance called “Deconstruction of reality”. Hmtl://S made several cuts relating on single frames, new filters have been applied as well. This rework is inspired by Kurt Kren´s technique for cutting analog films with the use of the Fibonacci sequence as method of measurement.

The first event on saturday 28 march will be hosted by Emerge´s label Attenuation Circuit and Brezen Studio monthly night for experimental music and sound art Echo Kammer.
A very rich line up will see also B Tong(Chris Sidgell) and Re-Drum.
All information can be found here.

Later on thursday 2 april we go to Poznan(PL) hosted by the Centrum Amarant. Autonomous and multi purpose centre for culture, social and art.

Live recorded at Subversiv(Praxis presents Datacide)

Here is the full version of this live happened on 6 march 2015. Thought it was a great session, mostly improvised, and unexpected. For this live we prepared a totally different set -quiet more IDM/broken beat oriented- but my computer crashed during the soundcheck. So I get back to my usual live equipment(electribes) and striked the floor with a radical noisy breakcore set. Great feedback to the sound system that ZFE and H-Kon set it up.

A warm thanks goes to Lynx for recording the set and to all Praxis team who made it all happen!

Aekre: Synths
