NACHBARN / UNIFORMITÄT

May 1, 2017 § Leave a comment

Happy May Day everyone! Instead of going to Kreuzburg and throwing rocks at advancing lines of riot police and getting my recommended daily intake of tear gas, today I have released NACHBARN / UNIFORMITÄT, themed around ‘Plattenbau’, the pre-fabricated concrete apartment blocks introduced to address the mass housing issue in the former GDR.

Constructed from a simple loop created with a contact mic and a toy drum and recorded onto a KAOSS Pad, the loop was abused and manipulated through an overly, and perhaps unnecessarily complicated feedback loop. Everything is in it’s unedited, raw state complete with glaring errors and painfully abrupt endings. That’s how I roll.

This will be released on cassette, one day, as soon as I get my head around that.

Enjoy, or don’t. Preferably consumed AS LOUD AS POSSIBLE, otherwise you’ll miss any subtle intricacies that may have accidentally wound in there.

Not only did I get to unexpectedly see Chicago post-punks Negative Scanners at Schokoladen, but I also got to see Cheena at ACUD, featuring no less than Crazy Spirit’s Walker Behl and Eugene Terry, and Margaret Chardiet (aka Pharmakon). Good times, good times …

Bolshevik Legolang: Beeskow/01Bolshevik Legolang: Beeskow/02

Kicked it in Beeskow over the weekend and finally got to shoot the collection of Plattenbau on the edge of town that I’d seen sometime ago. Despite it being a delighfully warm, sunny Saturday afternoon, the only other person around was a young boy who walked by and looked at me like I was a complete idiot: there was quite literally nobody in sight.
