blurred edges: Whirligig

We are happy to present our new project WHIRLIGIG at blurred edges 2021 – due to circumstances only as a movie.

WHIRLIGIG is a collective composition by Nelly Boyd with film projections by Christina Hansen.

Thanks to Giuseppe Gagliano for filming.

The movie can be watched on the Youtube channel of Blurred Edges, starting Monday, June 14, at 7 PM.

This concert is part of blurred edges. blurred edges 2021 is funded by Behörde für Kultur und Medien Hamburg and Hamburgische Kulturstiftung.

blurred edges update

No live concerts this time… We have decided to cancel the performance of our installation at blurred edges, due to the unsecure situation. We think it’s not possible to stream this work, so we will present a new work which we developed over the past months and which lends itself more to a classical concert setting. The filmed performance will be available as a video on Sunday, June 13, via the festival channels. Details follow.

We will perform at blurred edges again and will present our installation work Ultimate Loop Space, which we began to develop with the Reload grant last year, on the last two days of the festival: June 12 & 13, at C45 in Wendenstrasse.

It’s an ongoing audiovisual piece eight hours long. As there is only a very limited audience number, there are going to be time slots, which you can book in advance. More info later. And let’s hope the situation will be better.

 

klub katarakt cancelled

Happy New Year!

We were going to play at the opening of this year’s klub katarakt, performing do nothing, just wait, the singing will start…. sooner or later by Matthias Kaul, who passed away last year. There was also going to be a whole concert by L’art pour l’art dedicated to his memory.

But the festival is cancelled and postponed to February. Let’s hope.

Ultimate Loop Space – so far

As told, we weren’t able to present our new work to the public. However, we have set the whole installation up and performed two run-throughs of the work in its current state and recorded and filmed the result. Snippets of this may become viewable some time!

Many thanks to Christina Hansen, who built the installation elements and designed the lighting, and to Julia Berg, who did the filming.

We will continue working on this and hope to present it next year.

Cancellation

We are sad to announce the cancellation of the planned presentations of our new installation work with help from the Reload grant, due to the newly imposed lockdown.

We hope to present it next year under better circumstances. Stay safe.

And we will play the Hamburg premiere of Phill Niblock‘s Exploratory, Rhine Version, with Ernst Bechert as a guest on the trombone.

Seats are limited, so come early or send us a mail.

Recording Niblock

We have finished recording our version of Exploratory (Rhine Version) by Phill Niblock. Ernst Bechert joined as guest on trombone. Recording and mixing was done by Roman Schneider.

The recording will be part of a collection of CDs featuring different versions of Exploratory by many great artists, and we are glad Phill asked us to join and record s aspecial double-length version of 46 minutes. The CDs will hopefully be out sometime in 2021. We will keep you posted.

This recording was made possible by the aid fund „art knows no shutdown“ by Hamburgische Kulturstiftung.
