Stolen & found

Though this time some clever weirdo figure it out how to stole us equipment the fest was hot and cool.

3 days of art wasn’t that hard to handle as I thought it would be. Jakub Geltner hooked up dozens of satellites on the church so we can bypass the homesick.. Milos Vojtechovsky made some field enhancements, some girl draws soccer filed line around the church to decoy more people to come. We spit some seeds around in order to make bit of harvest for the next year, we listened bunch of clever speeches during a day.

During the nigh you could see ne I playing on church corpus. They hooked up cables in to their tent outside of the church, plus they enhanced the church by all the speakers they had and started buzzing. Some people said it sounded like A. Hilter’s speech, some almost vomit, but most of them were delighted.

We had few projections in the church. Beamers mapped on the walls and poles. The best sound-visual combination comes from the Opuka repertoire. It was cool, smooth and unbelievably colorful with its on tuned unique style. Martin Janicek & Petr Ferenc performed their classic industrial gig. We had there a dancers dancing Butoh like theatre piece, post-modern robotic dance cacophony performed by project ARTHUR accompanied by the hum made by ne I. Michal Cabowitz, the wizard played the noise through quadro sound setup and transformed it to our big surprise in to the chill out session. We even heard the voices from the tomb.

The bar served all the veggie and non veggie food well, the fire place produced nice warm back-end and we smelled like hell.
All that and more on Chapel Libechov.

Miszu

Miszu Speaking of Miszu‘s sound concepts and visual ones he can be described as a minimalist. This cannot be said about his technological solutions. He is one of those who like to have everything with “low level control” which requires hours and hours of staring in to a monitor plus hours and hours ironing and coding.
The spent time seams to be one of the basic element of all work of his. Whether it is coding or monotonic work such as scraping a sheet of metal by screw driver or practising on acoustic guitar.

This time on moo-cow Mischu will perform is toque flamenco fired by a super duper what ever looper he is coding now.
This gona be melancholic, fast and contemporary with deep classical roots.

New stuff

Sperm Festival adoration

Speaking of art and music or any other way of message transmission I have to admit one thing. Amid all the interesting musicians who played, plays and will play on Sperm festival I have experienced one performer who does things in the simplest and direct way in order to give us what he wants and that’s the core question; what the artist want to say and how it affects people. I wanted to ask him first what he want to say by his art, or music if you like , but then after the show it was pointless.

Because I still feel the answer. And that is; complete happiness.

Who wasn’t on his show cannot understand. Go ahead and give it try here or right on his site where he is not afraid to publish all his stuff, because he knows that the fruit seed lays somewhere else then to make a money out of cd’s.
Maine damen und heren, here you are Dan Deacon.
