So. 24.05.2009, 20:00 Uhr Volksbühne im Prater

STEPHEN O’MALLEY, der Doyen des Drone Doom, stattet am 24. Mai gemeinsam mit seinem Kollegen GREG ANDERSON als SUNN O))) dem temporären Ausweichquartier der Volksbühne einen Besuch ab. Da sich das auf niedrigsten Frequenzen angesiedelte Gitarrenbrummen, seit jeher das unkaputtbare Markenzeichen dieser ebenso verehrten wie weithin gefürchteten Band, tief ins Mauerwerk noch jedes Veranstaltungsortes einzufräsen pflegt, bittet die Musikbühne alle Interessenten inständig, die im Spielplan angekündigte Anfangszeit von 20 Uhr unbedingt ernst zu nehmen. Es gibt einfach Konzerte, die vor der magischen Zeitgrenze von 22 Uhr beendet sein sollten.

Curator: Daniel Mudie Cunningham as part of the Firstdraft Emerging Curators Program

” Clip Art showcases artists who make work about clips formed from fragments of moving and still images or through a combination of graphics and sound. Clip Art investigates the oppositional nature of meaning made from clip-based work and responds to the recent fascination with applying aural terms like sampling and remixing to the visual domain. Whether witty interrogations of popular culture or nostalgic trips through the visual archives of the recent past, Clip Art champions the analogue and handmade as much as it does daring things with digital technologies. ”


One big sadness at leaving Melbourne is missing Sunn0))) and boris vibrating organs and viscera at the Hi-Fi Bar on May 9th. I’m really, really not happy. And now they are doing a special performance with bits of Goatsnake, Burial Chamber Trio, Khanate and Striborg. It’s a black night of DOOOOM!!!! (Last time I screamed. This time I cried.)

0))) with Striborg!!!!!

10 = marquido + itta

Before it all passes me by again and I’m still looking like an imbecile going … wuuuuh … ? this from the shining centre of the universe of Southern China music, Global Noise Online, 10 (Marqido + Itta)’s China tour 2006.5

A concert in Guangzhou, as part of electronic duo 10’s China tour.
When: 20:00, May 5, 2006
Where: Windflower (389 Huanshi Dong Rd., 50-meter west of Holiday Inn)
Artists: 10 (Marqido + Itta), Bookystorie (Justin Zhong + LIN Zhiying + Thom Chin), Ikean (Justin Zhong + LIN Zhiying + Zafka)
Entrance: 30 yuan

The show is a spin-off of Mini MIDI II, the promising offsite event of the now mundane and boring annual MIDI Festival in Beijing (check out the schedule here). This year, Mini MIDI runs from May 1 – May 4 (that’s pretty long for this kind of festival, remember Sounding Beijing 2003?), and two of the participants – Japanese laptop maverick Marqido and Korean uber-instrumentalist Itta will take a trip down to Guangzhou and Shenzhen – their first public appearance in south China after a considerable amount of exposure in Hangzhou and Beijing.

Thanks to his distinguish stage presence as an “actionist” laptop performer, Marqido already has a cult following in China. 10 is the project launched by him and Itta of Korea, October 2004. Itta plays toy synthesizer, accordion, mouth-accordion, effect pedals and other obscure ethnical instruments. The duo plans to play in ten countries.

Both Bookystorie and Ikean are components of 21floor, the free form art collective based in Guangzhou. With the contribution of filmmaker/curator Thom Chin, Bookystorie will focus on multimedia performance while Ikean will be a sheer sound art trio.

Schedule for the rest of the tour:
May 02 @ Mini MIDI II, Beijing
May 02 @ Waterland Kwanyin #46, Beijing (free concert)
May 04 @ “The Fracture of Youth”, Chilango Bookstore 澄莲阁书吧, Shenzhen. (more info)
May 07 @ “NOIShanghai Anniversary”, Yu Yin Tang 育音堂, Shanghai. (more info)
May 10 @ Duolun MoMA, Shanghai.
May 12 @ Dashanzi International Art Festival 2006, Beijing. (more info)
