    MOONDOG IN HAWAII: HOBOCOMBO // HULA HUT AND THE SEVEN SEAS

    June 26th marks the start of Backyard Summer, our official summer program. On selected Wednesdays and Sundays, we invite you to our backyard to cool down with music, food, drinks and friends. We start off presenting two bands from very different backgrounds: While Hobocombo follow the path of experimental legend Moondog, the Berlin Honolulu crossover Hula Hut and the Seven Seas explores the golden era of Hawaiian music.

    ABOUT
     
    HOBOCOMBO is Andrea Belfi at drums, percussion and voice, Rocco Marchi at guitar, synth and voice, Francesca Baccolini at double bass and voice.
     
    Hobocombo began as a tribute to Moondog, playing and interpreting his music under a 21st century light which resulted in their debut album Now That It’s The Opposite, It’s Twice Upon A Time. Three years later, their second recorded voyage Moondog Mask, which once again features several compositions by our Viking Hero alongside a selection of Hobocombo’s own compositions and a „deviation“ by Robert Wyatt, ‚East Timor‘.
     
    The resulting potlatch is a glorious kaleidoscopic trip around the notion of Moondog being a „fantasy writer“, running with the imaginative possibilities offered up by his music and philosophy that draws out lines of flight connecting with a strain of exotica that runs from Les Baxter, to Joe Meek, via the aforementioned Wyatt. // Website

    A Berlin meets Honolulu crossover, HULA HUT AND THE SEVEN SEAS serve up a warm melange of foreign sounds, performing a repertoire of great Hawaiian music from the islands past “Golden Era”. Sol Hoopii, George Ku, Sol K Bright, and Genoe Keawe are just some of the characters in the bizarre story of how a German band director influenced an entire nation’s style of music. We honour that tradition while bonding with outsiders — a natural response from initially, outsiders to the city.. Doubling as a sunshine-therapy-counsellor-group, Hula Hut and the Seven Seas bring the joy in sadness. Come celebrate with us! // Website

    THALAMUS V.01

    THALAMUS is pleased to announce their second event „V.01“, highlighting spontaneity as one of their main interests. Live audio visual performance with Kathy Alberici + Federico Nitti. Improvised sound exchange between rkss + Claire Tolan. DJ Set by SYZYGY.

    ABOUT
     
    Classically trained, experimental violinist, KATHY ALBERICI creates spine-tingling sounds that occupy the space between drone, soundscapes and noise. FEDERICO NITTI manipulates code and live video feeds to create a technological response to a human interaction. The pair have been asked to speak on several occasions about their unique approach to live experimentation. // Kathy AlbericiFederico Nitti
     

     

     
    ///
     
    For the second performance, THALAMUS has invited RKSS and CLAIRE TOLAN to perform together for the first time. In this experiment they will take turns responding to one another’s work from opposing ends of the space to create a dialogue. Claire Tolan’s explorations with ASMR and interest in its community has taken on many forms, from installation to hosting the radio show ‘You’re Worth It’ on BCR. rkss, who has recently released ‘Top Charted’ on tape with Where To Now?, is investigating notions of authenticity and realness through the exploration of EDM samples. // rkssClaire Tolan

    THALAMUS is postgender. They investigate the obscured distinction between contemporary club culture and exhibition practices. They collaborate with artists from different fields to orchestrate thematically-curated sound experiments, engaging in an interdisciplinary dialogue over the course of a night. Questioning the way we are conditioned to perceive experiences, Thalamus rejects definitive conclusions, concentrating instead on the infinite possibilities a single formula enables. // Thalamus

    WALTER SCOTT: WENDY’S REVENGE

    WALTER SCOTT: WENDY’S REVENGE

    WALTER SCOTT is an interdisciplinary artist working across writing, video, performance and sculpture. He is the creator of the comic series/art-world satire Wendy, and has performed and exhibited locally and internationally in places such as Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver, Chicago, Los Angeles, Yokohama, and Warsaw.
     
    Walter will perform his piece, “Wendy’s Revenge,” in which Xendy, an armoured space pirate and contemporary artist, is informed by her naturopath that in order to exorcize her mysterious abdominal pain, she has to find her ex-boyfriend and kill him. This journey to find the source of her agony takes her across the galaxy, to a world submerged in Kombucha and various other psychic landscapes, as well as through encounters with various art-world cliches – in hopes of destroying all that destroys her. A two-person performance featuring voices, images and sound. // Website
