Till Nowak – Digital Artist

January 19th, 2012 // No Comments // Posted by Andrea

In line of the Transmediale Festival in Berlin from  30.01 – 05.02.12. I want to show you the work of Till Nowak.

He will present his short film “The Centrifuge Brain Project” at the Festival. It’s not online, but i give you a short vision. In this fictive documentation he builds monstrous machines, which scientist use to overcome gravity. With 3-D-Modelling-and Animation Software he manipulates the reality. After taking live pictures to extract the 3-D structure, he put these animation back to the documentary footage via Match-Moving-Method. So that we get the impression, that gravity is no matter anymore.

CTM Festival 30 January – 5 February 2012

January 18th, 2012 // No Comments // Posted by Andrea

Highly recommended. Every Year in the end of January and beginning of February the CTM Festival in cooperation with  transmediale  takes place in Berlin.

For every Year now, I joined the Festival. Its taking you away in another universe of music and cultural adventures. It will sharpen your senses and put your percipience on an higher level. Mostly it is really experimental. It’s more music for your mind then for your feet.

CTM Festival

“With an extensive program of concerts, discourses and an exhibition space, CTM.12 – Festival for Adventurous Music and Related Arts is appropriating the festival theme SPECTRAL to explore the current reemergence of all things ghostly and dark in experimental music, avant-pop, and art – and to speculate about its possible causes and inherent potentials.

In addition to a comprehensive music program at HAU, Berghain, Passionskirche, Gretchen, Kater Holzig and Horst Krzbrg, a discourse series developed in collaboration with the philosopher, psycho-historian and author Andreas L. Hofbauer will address the festival’s theme by pursuing questions concerning art, theory, and music. ”

Friday, the 16th of December OneBeat’s experimental sessions goes into the second round, with  KYSON, who joined the Onebeat collective very recently, and OneBeat’s up to date only visual artist RTZ23 to perform together. We’re expecting an audiovisual experience in concert length with Kyson’s atmospheric downtempo beats blending with RTZ23′s animated visuals. Supported by Geordie Little on the guitar. We’ll also have a dj playing some tunes before and after so come early and have a beer with us.

Kyson aka Jian is the newest member of the OneBeat collective. He makes some great music. His bio states that he’s “drawing influences from Ambient and Trip Hop Artists, Jazz Musicians such as Miles Davis and Hip/hop Producers of the early 90’s” to create a mix of “Downtempo beats, soft melodies, washy vocals and deep pads“. The buzz around him is growing and he’s been featured on websites like the ISO50 Blog or the Nueva Forma Podcast.

Krake Festival // 15. – 21. August

August 17th, 2011 // No Comments // Posted by Andrea

“KRAKE ist an annual Berlin based fes­ti­val for chal­leng­ing elec­tronic music and visual trans­duc­tion ini­ti­ated by Nico Deuster of KILLEKILL and Hol­ger Hilgers.

The fes­ti­val took place at the Sui­cide Cir­cus for the first time in 2010 and was an over­whelm­ing suc­cess: numer­ous ground­break­ing artists of high rep­u­ta­tion rocked the crowd such as Warp’s elec­tron­ica heroes PLAID, techno leg­end CRISTIAN VOGEL, RADIOACTIVE MAN of the infa­mous two lone swords­men or break­beat weirdo BOGDAN RACZYNSKI. But there were also a lot of new tal­ents who sur­prised the audi­ence with their fresh­ness. PLASTER with their audio/visual con­cert and KARSTEN PFLUM deserve to be named here.

For 2011 KRAKE will take the next level and con­sol­i­date its rep­u­ta­tion as the most dar­ing Berlin club fes­ti­val with a mas­sive line up in 4 venues and, a new web­site and an art­work by inter­na­tion­ally acclaimed graphic design­ers DOPPELDENK. Musi­cians con­firmed for 2011 include JIMMY EDGAR live set, BOLA live set, LEGOWELT live set, MIXMASTER MORRIS dj set, EMIKA live and many, many more.”

Is there anything more to say ?
