Submerged!

Alexander Hacke and Danielle de Picciotto

Friday, December 12 at 8:00pm at Z Bar Bergstrasse 2, 10115 Berlin Alexander Hacke and Danielle de Picciotto will be showing a short experimental film they produced together at the video & Sound exhibition: "Submerged!"

Based upon three short stories written by Co-curator, Leo Kuelbs, "Submerged!" provides liquid visions of a multi-layered, ever-shifting psychological seascape.

A group of visual and sonic-based artists were brought together from a variety of countries including Germany, Israel, Italy, USA, Brazil, Portugal and Hungary, making "Submerged!" an international effort. When represented from multiple cultural angles, a mysterious whole reveals itself, every-shifting, just beneath the conscious surface.

"Submerged!" has appeared in Long Island City, Brooklyn and Budapest with upcoming shows in Thailand and Los Angeles. Initial Screening: 8.30 pm, Looping/30 mns per loop: 9.25 pm - 12 am, Curated by Leo Kuelbs and Karl Erickson.

Lament Live

Einstürzende Neubauten are currently on tour performing LAMENT:

Lament - Einstürzende Neubauten

Lament

LAMENT the new album by Einstürzende Neubauten is released Friday 07 November 2014 on BMG Records.

LAMENT should be heard as a studio reconstruction of a work primarily designed to be performed live, rather than an official new Einstürzende Neubauten LP proper.

In truth, the piece can only be fully realised, as well as best experienced, in its physical embodiment, performed on or by founding member Andrew Unruh’s gigantic instruments and noise generating devices that visually evoke the horrors the work describes or embeds in the sounds they conjure from the filth and terror of the industrialised 20th century world at war with itself.

But in fulfilling what at first appears to be a surprise commission for such a formidable longtime outsider group, Einstürzende Neubauten transformed the earthy, idiosyncratic contents they mined from academic, state, music hall and internet archives with the help of their two researchers into a richly complex cycle of original and cover songs and performance pieces.

The music often originated in LAMENT’s storytelling needs, be it in terms of sounds used or compositions structured along First World War flow charts or scored from calendars of the involvement of the 20 plus countries embroiled in it.

The way LAMENT plays off pre-existing and composed materials, pieces clipped together from historical records next to direct cover interpretations, or indeed their Frankenstein like construction of an ur-anthem/national hymn delivers a differently angled history of the war.

Finally, LAMENT opens Bargeld’s case that the First World War never ended - the interwar and postwar periods being essentially pauses for breath as the great military powers carry on their conflict at some remove in faraway wars fought by proxy.

The Cut

Soundtrack By Alexander Hacke

’The Cut’ ist ein Soundtrack, der meine Emotionen und Gedanken, die ich mit dem Film verbinde, musikalisch ausdrückt. Die Musik hat den Film von der ersten Drehbuchfassung bis zur Fertigstellung begleitet und gestaltet. Alexander Hackes ’The Cut’ ist ein stolzer Western- Soundtrack, der sich vor der Arbeit Ennio Morricones verbeugt, gleichzeitig völlig innovativ und neu klingt. ’The Cut’ ist das Opus Magnum des Alexander Hacke.“ Fatih Akin über die Filmmusik von Alexander Hacke

Alexander Hacke's music for THE CUT, the new movie by Fatih Akin will be released Oct 17, 2014 by Hamburg label Bureau B.
