18.5.2018 19:00-22:00 TINTIN PATRONE (drone — Hamburg)
Tintin Patrone is a German-Filipino composer and sound-artist based in Hamburg, Germany. Her minimal sound work and long duration performances are essentially shaped by her researches in microtonality and music making animals like the chanting huskies from Yukon Territory, Canada or the Thai Elephant Orchestra from Northern Thailand.
Tintin is studying the emotional impact of music mainly concerned with the principled relationship between form and function in evolved animal signals. She is making music that explores spatial resonance and tonal interference. Her songs rely on the perceptual effects of controlled tones to re- calibrate the listener’s relationship to natural sound. Her work moves gradually through a series of long, sustained tones played by trombone and various modulation devices.

Hauptmann Kim are members of „Engelsharfen & Teufelsgeigen“.
The DJ collective „Engelsharfen & Teufelsgeigen“ (founded in February 2009) is living proof of the fact that classical music and club culture need not be mutually exclusive. With a characteristic mixture of classical, avant-garde, film and contemporary music, as well as their electronic derivatives, these enthusiastic musical tightrope-walkers have been a fixture in the Viennese club scene for the past few years.

Hard and boomy, that’s the sound of Benzokai, hip-hop experimentalist and ambient artist from Tallinn. Unsettling and gloomy are the lyrics of Benzokai – they’ll have hard time fulfilling the hopes of the intellectual party-goers. Here’s why: “Proper bass makes girls go wild Proper girls make boys go hard World needs fixin’ – this I know – Buyin’ stuff is what I do!” Benzokai’s way is that of drum, bass, and unfriendly rapping.
Jeff T Byrd is a musician from New Orleans currently living in Vienna. His debut solo release „Lamb Alley“ was compiled from sounds collected in and around his apartment, mainly a creaky old piano, but also: footsteps echoing in the stairwell, the cries of a baby infiltrating the room through an open window and the hum of a washing machine emanating from the kitchen. In the improvised live performance, he mangles and rearranges the source recordings using a pair of cassette recorders and plays Kinderklavier.
