Despite being half a world away from one another geographically and conceptually, Australia’s Room40 and Berlin’s Faitiche share an affinity in approach – a tendency toward the avant, the experimental and the obscure – which makes them a fascinating double bill.
Lawrence English’s Room40 label has been “ [...] delivering sound parcels from the antipodes since the turn of the century,” with more than fifty releases by musicians from four continents.
Faitiche is a relatively new imprint headed by German experimentalist Jan Jelinek.
Ursula Bogner [DE] (1946 – 1994) was an undiscovered German electronic music pioneer whose work was never published or performed during her lifetime. A pharmacist by profession, electronic music was an obsession. Her enormous oeuvre –on reel-to-reel tape – came to light almost by accident after a chance encounter between Jan Jelinek and Bogner’s son, Sebastian. A collection of works titled “Ursula Bogner: Recordings 1969 – 1988” was released on Faitiche in 2009.
Faitiche is delighted to present “Schleusen: A Concert for six signal generators” after an original score by Ursula Bogner. The 16-minute concert will be performed by Jan Jelinek, Mo Loschelder, Andrew Pekler, Tim Tetzner, Kassian Troyer and Holger Zapf.
