VROOOM's Shred-o-mat with: Philipp Ernsting, Red Brut, Henk Bakr, Gonçalo Almeida, Lukas Simonis
The (music) video 'shred' is a cultural phenomenon, arguably based on the flashy, fast metalized guitar playing (= shredding). It has taken on its own life in recent years. Artists from a wide variety of backgrounds are re-hashing and reinterpreting existing music videos and other things; spoofs of Steve Vai's smug live-in-concert noodling or reharmonizations of crazy people ranting. There's even musicless music videos; a playground for bastardized sound design. The shred can manifest itself in many different alternate takes. Together with the local artists of tonite's line up we will pick a few videos that will be tossed into the shredder for some improvised live treatment!
GOODIEPAL with DANIEL S. BØTCHER, GRØN, NYNNE ROBERTA PEDERSEN
Goodiepal is a controversial Danish/Faroese musician/composer whose long list of antics are rooted in his oddbal artistic output. He does performances and lectures (on the future of computer music, his own compositional practices and resonance computing). From 2004 till 2008 he was the head of the electronic music department and a teacher at DIEM (Danish Institute for Electro-acoustic Music) at the Royal Academy of Music in Aarhus, Denmark. He is the author of two books: “Radical Computer Music & Fantastisk Mediemanipulation” and “El Camino Del Hardcore – Rejsen Til Nordens Indre”. He travelled very long distances only using his home-made cabin bike named 'Kommunal Klon Komputer 2', providing electric power during concerts with the help of its dynamo system. His international tours included 150 universities. Goodiepal has given away money and most of his belongings; in 2011 he published an 'album object' containing a 500 Danish Crowns note, and sold it for 250 Danish Crowns. During the 2012 edition of the Transmediale fest, Goodiepal shipped his belongings over and subsequently gave them away; dubbed as the 'MORT AUX VACHES EKSTRA EXTRA – THE GIVE AWAY!' performance.
Tonight's show sees him joining forces with Daniel S. Bøtcher + Grøn + Nynne Roberta Pedersen Pedersen for a set described by Goodiepal himself as "Scandinavian Nordic Dreamy Synth Music". But knowing him, it will probably be much more than that!
