Konsul Gnadenwalze – Aššur & Cyclades [Album Release]

Free mp3 Album and Mix download goes here!

Konsul Gnadenwalze is the alter ego of two gifted musicians. On stage they combine energetic live shows with minimalistic visuals. Aside of the performances they are creating their own elaborate Konsul Gnadenwalze universe. A lovely mixture of pseudo-scientific and poetic references. They create dub-wise broken beat abstractions, beautiful and brutal, organic and mechanized at the same time. Each successive listen reveals new depths, pulling you further into the world of Konsul Gnadenwalze. A wired carousel ride with the ancient question of whether we revolve around our environment, or our environment revolves around us.

There is a limited physical distribution available with a special handcrafted booklet. Exclusively at shows and with luck when contacting the artist directly.

Schwarzwald – Guns, Drums and Rattles Mixtapes

Schwarzwald - Guns Drums and Rattles

Symbioticcube is presenting the “Guns, Drums and Rattles” mixtape from Schwarzwald, an artist exploring the musical traditions of trance and ecstasy by using field recordings and overlapping percussive patterns in his songs. His mixtapes blend his own pieces into a wide selection of his own acoustic inspirations. Here, we will travel from Peru to Iraq, from Mali to Nepal and back to Egypt. During this journey, superior musical principles and the power of the moment alternate with one another. Enjoy this genre blasting audio-piece, that is much more than just an ordinary mixtape.

LTP @ Roböexotica 2013 Vienna

Just short. Enjoy the mixes and of course the new track and music video that I produced short before the event because of the massive inspiration from the set list I had at hands.
The robots were amazing too. Unfortunately I didn’t take pictures from them. Was too much occupied by robot arms serving drinks and steam punk mechanisms doing things that you could not even imagine, and playing the set of course.

LTP – HUMAN [AMBIENT MIX]

‘Human’ is what we are.

Somewhere in between the ground and the sky, humanity has its place on earth. What does it mean to be human?

This 74 minutes composition tries to find an answer in the auditory realm. The artist is connecting sounds from all around the world which normally would not be heard together. Associations which were separated before, find a new context and create an enhanced perception for the patterns that run our civilization.

II

Das war der Tag der weißen Chrysanthemen, –
mir bangte fast vor seiner schweren Pracht …
Und dann, dann kamst du mir die Seele nehmen
tief in der Nacht.

Mir war so bang, und du kamst lieb und leise, –
ich hatte grad im Traum an dich gedacht.
Du kamst, und leis wie eine Märchenweise
erklang die Nacht …

–  Rainer Maria Rilke

 

 

 

Several influences created a connection between Rilkes lines, the chosen opening track and the flow of tracks that followed. I opened this set with a track from one of my all-time-favorite albums called “Mitten im Krieg” by The Inchtabokatables. I just wanted to use a song from this album in one of my sets so that’s it: “Wenn du schläfst” – when you sleep.

It’s the idea of diving in somebody else’s dreams, loosing a proper self on coasts and clouds, in forests and the darkness of the ocean. I tried to capture my associations with the poem, the song and my constitution in the choice of tracks to recreate and transmit them.

I’m happy about the idea that developed in the progress of this mix, so I will try to continue this concept of connecting deep dubstep-music with a lyrical background in future sets.

 

 

 

 

Leaving the Planet @ NODE13 [Video + Making Off]

The NODE13 festival in Frankfurt was an extremely dense week packed with high-tech stuff, very intelligent and motivated people and a lot of fun. I have to thank the VVVV community and the organizers for making this happen.

pano

The début of my ‘leaving the planet’ AV performance went fine. Of course I messed up the system a day before when I tried to implement a new feature, but the backup system ran just like a charm at the night of the performance. I made the set beat-focused and danceable especially for this Friday night so I was kind of suprised that so many people were sitting. But I think that was a organizational problem. The people were sitting because there were chairs. It wasn’t that much of a problem, as the whole thing was immersive enough to get the attention for the 50 minutes that I played. I have to admit that the set marks the darkest point in my musical development, but I hope you can enjoy it anyway. Things are getting more happy again, now that the spring comes.

Credits go to Felix Huber who made the amazing macro video material with his custom camera dolly, Valentin Hessler and Dorian Butzer for feeding me with sound and mental support and my family and friends for supporting me with this since quite a while now.

For the technical interested people I am gonna explain some details about the development of this system. I was working on the underlying system since October 2012 as a main project (lot of hours a day). What you see is just the tip of the iceberg. If I look back at those four months of incubation and development, I can say that I spent 50 % of the time patching VVVV, 10 % patching MAX, 10% filming, 10% messing around with codecs and real-time playback of multiple video, 10% producing sound and < 1% making the actual set.

I wanted to combine my previous experience as a DJ, producer, VJ and VVVV / MAX Freelancer in one software package that enables me to reduce the actual time spent with programming and increase time spent with being physically active and creative, but still having all the flexibility to use the system for AV performances, installations, video production, projection mapping and so on. Another requirement was to be mobile with it. Everything should run on one PC and the additional devices should go into a case that I could carry around the world by feet if necessary.

The System should get as close as possible to parallel audio and visual production work-flow and it should have the shortest way from production to performance and installation.

What I came up with is 'DeathStar3'. The geeky name comes from the initial GUI design on the VVVV side, that appearently looked similar to the consoles that were used to destroy the planet Alderaan, just a little bit more sci-fi.

DeathStar3beta1

This VVVV powered software runs very well alongside Ableton Live (feels like a VST) and potentially all kind of DAW or custom sound programs (PD, MAX, Supercolider). What you basically get is a 8 track sequencer, 2 Video Players, 2 patch loaders, a custom postFX loader, presets and the possibility to map every parameter to either the sequences or the audio analysis values. The sequencer syncs to the running clip of a control track in ableton, using my ClipWatcher Max for Live device. So you can mash up the sequence position using for example the Monome and LiveClipChopper, like I do at the moment. Also the presets in DeathStar3 are played according to which clip in the control track of Ableton Live is played. So your work-flow enables you to create a scene in Ableton, create a suitable visual, make a preset, hit ‘Performance Mode’, close the GUI and d play live with the visuals running in your back!

Best thing is it also works in the other direction, too. With DeathStar3 you can load patches that are controlling parameters in Ableton Live, using a Max for Live device that receives data from VVVV and you can select which of the devices and which parameter you want to modulate with it.

DeathStar3beta1 was already distributed to a handful of selected people for beta testing and will be public soon.

If you know possibilities for me to play a set, please send me a mail. Any support is very welcome!

Metphors Exhibition Opening

arselectronica

We managed to get this 18 minutes video shoot and 30 minutes audio recording from my performance at the Metaphors exhibition opening at nomadenetappe in Linz. It was very nice that Enrique Tomás (ultranoise.es) gave me the posibility to play the fresh system there for the first time. Thanks to all of the people involved. Especially the interface culture people who organized the exhibition and produced awesome work for it. If you are around you can still visit it until of the 8th of February!

Leaving the Planet @ Metaphors Linz 31012013

METAPHORS

OPENING: | 31.01.13 | 19.00
EXHIBITION: 01. – 08.02.13 | 16.00 – 20.00

nomadenetappe is pleased to announce the exhibtion Metaphors, a coproduction by nomadenetappe, the Interface Culure Master [Kunstuniversität Linz] and Enrique Tomás.

Videogames for bacteria, poetic ways of typing with keyboards, analogue social networks or visualizations of colliding human lifes are among many others, the contents of the exhibition Metaphors. Thirteen emerging international artists studying at the Interface Culture Master of the Kunstuniversität Linz were commissioned by one of their lecturers to produce a final project for the spaces of nomadenetappe. The works will show an overview of individual interpreted destabilizations of industrial standards, challenging the audience to interact with the metaphors surrounding us in a new and fresh manner and with unexpected results.
