Blurred Edges 2015

We will be part again of this year’s Blurred Edges festival in Hamburg and will present an evening with premieres at the Nachtasyl im Thalia Theater: Thursday, June 18, 21:45

Guests this time are Matthias Kaul, Matthieu Philippe De l’Isle and Ignacio Fernández-Bollo.

No need to tell much about Matthias Kaul, and we are proud to play the premiere of his new piece Some Hot Bottles Coolin‘ Down – supervised by the composer himself. He will also join us on percussion in some pieces.

We are happy to play again with our old friend Matthieu from Paris, member of eddie135, Casse Gueule and Le Reveil Des Tropiques, among others. He has written a new piece especially for us: Music for bows and percussion.

Ignacio is also not unknown here, and he’s written also a new piece for us, as yet untitled, which is for organ, guitar, cello and percussion.

Jan Feddersen has also written a new piece called Slides for three electric guitars.

Robert Engelbrecht has no new piece, but we will probably play Nellys Boudoir for piano, three electric guitars, percussion and tape.

Come and listen.

Blurred Edges 2014: Drones and Pulses

We will be part again of this year’s Blurred Edges festival in Hamburg and will present an evening at the Mojo Club. Together with lots of guests we will play Terry Riley’s In C in another electric version (after the rock version at klub katarakt 2013). This time the drummer is Dirk Dhonau, and again there will be overhead projections by Katrin Bethge. The evening will open with some drones and an interactive smartphone composition by Guy Saldanha.

We will play a programme with new pieces by us. We are also honoured to present the premiere of a new composition by Matthias Kaul.

Peter Imig: Prometheus for three string instruments and tape (2013) – a re-arrangement of the piece premiered at the opening night of this year’s klub katarakt festival.

Jan Feddersen: 3 Strings No. 2 for bowed electric guitar, cello, double bass (2013) – premiere!

Robert Engelbrecht: A la mémoire de Mascha for three electric guitars with e-bows (2002/2013) – an old piece, now played for the first time in its originally intended form

Matthias Kaul: do nothing, just wait, the singing will start… sooner or later for cymbals and electric toothbrushs (2012) – premiere!

Should become a very spacey concert again.
