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.

New stuff

Dva

two-starsDva” means “Two“. Why two? Because they are actually two multi renaissance artists. The first one is a feminine like woman with multiple instruments behind her back which she switches like other girls socks do. The second star is a nice low-high-tech geek looping anything they both do and more.
They are both stars big enought already so I do not have to write much about them here. Just listen or check their website maybe you’ll find them play in your city soon.

The Theremin Queen

theremin-2880I’m so delighted. It has been long long time I had born then played bass guitar hated frets, still cannot find a way how to play, then found an airbrush and its way of air…then there was a delay, some brain measure period and now, FINALLY have the air instrument Theremin, the Loop machine just sits on my table, Voice Box on the way and Pamelia Kurstin recording for free, wow. This all happened in the click of eons slightly transforming the pitch of the Internet waves into voice like sound kinda melancholic as we all are.

The TIME, right here, right now, in the twenty first century surrounded by the waves transmitting Shakespeare’s books within the mini-pidi-second. Flowing thru ages not even noticing the sun appears. Try to slow down for a while and listen to a man who beholds his future.

Riding a bike or passing thru the street you have to be aware of the casualty you bring along. The neglected word we have put aside can be a excellent sound toy and even more the instrument of self consciousness or even even more it can bring the awareness of our live manners. Watch out if Lukáš hasn’t play the game with Ya.
