Posted in Uncategorized by salonbruit on March 18, 2008

Christian Pincock (NY/Berlin) integrates technology, physicality, and disparate musical concepts into his work using a computer-based instrument he built using MAX/MSP. For this performance, Christian will be performing a new composition involving live manipulation and processing of pre-recorded improvisations on everyday objects combined with field recordings.
Currently in Berlin until April 2008, he has lived in Boston and New York City where he has worked with performing artists of all disciplines in a broad range of situations.

Jason Robinson (North America) and Ostear (Ireland/Berlin)
Jason Robinson is a California-based saxophonist, composer, and scholar. He has performed and presented his work in Europe, Canada, Mexico, and throughout the United States at prominent venues and festivals. Robinson currently leads the Jason Robinson Quartet and is a member of several collaborative groups, including Cosmologic and the Cross Border Trio.
Ostear is Keith O Brien and Roy Carroll unfurling a particularly opulent carpet of sonological excitement for Jason and themselves to frolic on giddily.

Lise-Lotte Norelius (Sweden) is a composer and performer of composed or improvised music, for various objects, percussion and live-electronics. Her music is about motion and emotion, by exploring the energy of sound, rhythmic structures and layers.The preference for rhythmic patterns and sound, derives from all the years with traditional African music and the work with sampled sounds and drums. She collaborates a lot with other musicians, dancers/choreographers and intermedia artists, but performs also as solo-artist. For this night she will perform a sad (hopefully) song, together with a babusjka from Ukraine.

This Friday Salon Bruit will be hosting….

Aymeric De Tapol (France)
is a recording engineer, composer and multimedia artist. After Graduating from Toulouse School of Fine Arts, in 2000, he joined the artist collective Construct, with Frederic Blin (multimedia programming), Cathie Verdin (dance) and Rémi Duveauchelle (lights). Within this context, he directed videos and composed sound works.
At the moment for his live performance he is working with natural soundscapes that he collects everywhere. Sounds like wind, fire, birds and ambient drone are used in contrast with an artificial soundscape processed with max msp.

Caretakers (england/berlin)
Music of memory and forgetting made with lost and found sounds. Richard Scott and James Edmonds (aka Caretakers) are two Englishman in Berlin excavating layers of music and memory from the city’s crumbling graffiti laden brickwork as the omnipresent spectre of regeneration threatens to paint over all history once and for all. A Sunday flea market of cassettes, old records, drum machines, bent circuits and analogue synthesizers combine to make a dusty, crackly music with a surprisingly breadth and warmth. Their complex, hands-on music goes against the city’s prevailing tide of minimalism and noise – admitting emotion, memory, nostalgia and melancholy into its fading, browning ambient textures. It is music whose clothes never quite fit, remembering and forgetting in equal measure, allowing neither optimism nor dread. Composed in real time, this is music that attempts to stay in one place and can do so only by admitting constant change. (berlin) and keyframed (france/berlin)
Normally known for his diligent form of doom noise will be performing with newly built toys based on the solar sound modules developed by ralf schreiber – this will be the first performance with these new toys.
yoann trellu (aka kreyframed) is a french video artist living in berlin. He works with dancers, musicians and writers to explore the relationship between video and other media. Tonight he will accompany as video jockey.
