Live at Elektro Müller | Klingklang Düsseldorf

OPEN SOURCE FESTIVAL ARTIST RESIDENCY
01. – 11.06.2016

i’ve been thinking about artist residencies for quite a while now as an opportunity to find into an institutional frame that allows artists to concentrate on their work. during the last year studying at the institute for popular music at folkwang university of arts i more and more understood what beeing an artist means to me and how much i lack time for my music work. why i applied for an artist residency at klingklang:
room = space = time.

when i arrived at the studio it was an empty room. it’s only comfort was the space itself and the pa, for me in a meaning of having place for all my equipment and plugging it so i could either produce or reherse playing live at any time without disturbance. but i felt the need to rethink the room, to arrive, to breathe inspiration why i changed the position of the tables and brought flowers.

when i felt a bit more home at klingklang and started working but i felt growing expectations regarding what to achieve during these two weeks. so much space to fill! freedom turned into duty. though i worked on sounds the days felt heavy, empty, unsatisfying. i decided to setup the programm for the closing concert first in hope to to find into a relaxed weekend and return to freedom again. space = time = growth.

week two at klingklang was far easier, i enjoyed rehersing, i took the chance to listen to unfinished tracks on the new speakers, i played around. and decided to bring in visuals to the concert for which i took a photo walk through the japanese quartier, an amazing and inspiring experience as you will feel more in asia than in europe when exploring certain streets downtown düsseldorf.

live at elektro müller: sonae
artist residency closing concert
saturday 11th of june 2016 20h
https://www.facebook.com/events/784018445032826/

the concert made a festive ending to my time in düsseldorf. everything i prepared for the evening worked well, even twisting the tiny buttons of my new kork rhythm machine with nervous fingers. having tim fehske with me for visualising the place made it complete: electronic music and live visuals are twin art-forms, one can be told without the other but once you experience them together you’ll see them as a whole.

Score for Helden
