Die 61. Folge der Geräuschwelten präsentiert ein breites Spektrum elektronischer Klänge, welches von Noise über nervöse DIY-Elektronik bis hin zu strenger Elektroakustik reicht. Es spielen: Der US-Noise-Musiker Gerritt Wittmer, der bereits im Umfeld von Sunn O))) und Isis seinen digitalen Knirsch-Crunch-Doom-Noise präsentiert hat. Er betreibt das fantastische Label Misanthropic Agenda. Bereits zum zweiten Mal in Münster zu gast ist das Projekt Feien Trinkers Bei Pinkels Daheim, welches mit defekter Alltagselektronik und gekidnappten Heimgeräten eine knackige DIY-Industrial-Musik spielt. Der Schweizer Antoine Chessex ist als Komponist und Interpret ein Grenzgänger zwischen dem experimentellen Underground und der Neuen Musik. Er präsentiert heute ein Stück für Treated Saxophon und elektronische Zuspielungen. Geräuschwelten wird gefördert durch das Kulturamt der Stadt Münster.

FEINE TRINKERS BEI PINKELS DAHEIM (D)

Ursprünglich kommt J. Eberhard aus dem äußersten Südwesten der Republik, Lörrach. Ins Exil nach Bremen kam er, nachdem ihm die Stadtväter unter dem Vorwurf, ein badischer Unabomber zu sein, eine Bannmeile um seine alte Heimat zogen. Kerosin, Rohre, Metall, Schrauben wurden gefunden. Ein Höllengerät machte ohrenbetäubenden Krach. Das reichte aus. Was die Ordnungshüter nicht glauben wollten, war, dass es sich um Musikgeräte der Feinen Trinkers Bei Pinkels Daheim handelte. Lange sind die Trinkers nun schon in Bremen und kommen alle paar Jahre mal wieder aus dunklen Souterrain-Wohnungen ohne Fenster mit Lebenszeichen in Form von CDs und Schallplatten mit klangvollen Titel wie »Hungerhakens Speckrolle«, “Apfelmost und Essig” und (unser derzeitiger Favorit) “Wellen falscher Blondinen” hervor. Allesamt eine Wucht, Handwerker-Drone und Selfmade-Noise. Das Kerosin wurde konfisziert, der Heimwerker- und DIY-Hometaper-Ethos bleibt.

ANTOINE CHESSEX (CH)

 


Antoine Chessex is a composer and sound artist born in 1980 in Vevey, Switzerland, with a background as a saxophone player and performer. His sonic researches include compositions for ensembles, solo works, transdisciplinary collaborations and sound installations . Chessex´s works are based on the exploration of the physicality of sounds and spaces and deal with acoustic as much as electronic and electroacoustic mediums.
His solo works feature dense layers of sustained pitches reacting with the architecture of the space or massive clouds of amplified sax resulting in intense live actions in total immersion in the sound.
He presents his works worldwide and appears at numerous international festivals and venues in the U.S.A, Russia, Japan, China and all around Europe.
Recent compositional works include “DUST” for 3 violins and electronics, “Resonant Water” a site specific chamber music piece for ensemble, “Metakatharsis” commissioned by the Phoenix Ensemble in Basel and “CHUTE” commissioned by the Kammerensemble Neue Musik Berlin (2011) as well as numerous electronic music pieces.
Collaborations with musicians like Lasse Marhaug, Zbigniew Karkowski, Jérôme Noetinger, Maja Ratkje, Chris Corsano, Ilios, Valerio Tricoli, C. Spencer Yeh, Axel Dörner, Hans Koch, Robin Hayward, Thomas Ankersmit, Lucio Capece, Dave Phillips, Kasper Toeplitz, Burkhard Beins, Monno, Didi Bruckmayr, architect Christian Waldvogel and media artist Ulrike Gabriel.
