While my reflections on how to go on with the das kleine field recordings festival are still flowing to its completion, a fine example of what a part of the programme could look like is provoked by my invitation to John Grzinich.
Here is his programme of activities:
On 15 September he will screen his movie
sound aspects of material elements
at the altes finanzamt (click for details, address and time)
On 17 and 19 september he will conduct a workshop on
This workshop is full. Details on website.
On 18 september he will perform his work
in the rote salon/volksbühne
Since the Volksbühne doesn’t care a fuck about our evening,
you won’t find any information on their website.
Apart from the John Grzinich week,
a new edition of Tales for Tapes will be held at
Raum 20 in the ziegrastrasse in Berlin,
near the S-Bahn Sonnenallee.
This Tales for Tapes will be the sixth edition of a series started by Anton Mobin in Berlin. Links to articles (1, 2, 3) on the audio cassette were posted recently on the cassette culture group . Also a link to a listing of more the 100 cassette labels was published. The artists who use the magnetic tape and the tape player as the central medium in their performances still linger in limbo.
The Tales for Tapes series is a showcase for those artists. After the very well attended evenings with Aki Onda and Preslav Literary School, this evenings edition will see two Berlin visitors in action. One of them is Anna Vo, whose work is somehow reminiscent of Adam Preslav’s but moves more slowly, and towards an other continent of course, listen here ear or here hear. Second guest is Blenno und die Wurstbrücke, who combines Arte povera with very crappy but therefore beautiful looking tape machines to create a soundtrtack for a comic strip. The third act will announce its name soon, because they (we ) have a different name for each show.

first concert at 21.30
