    VAMILIENFATER [live]
    is the moniker of Fillipp Vingerhoets, co-founder of the „bohemian drips“ label and artist collective. His musical vision emerges from the electronic amplification of everyday life, blending a mix of family life- / urban- and / nature- soundscapes, based on lo-fi field recordings, into crippling artefacts from VHS Tapes, encrusted cassettes and digital feedback glitches. He is working with VCR Hifi, 4 Track/8Track machines, no input/fx chains, electro acoustics and modular synthesis. His work-ethos is following the idea of the abolition of the performing artist, as the creation of his works is based on copying
    and copying the sounds endless times from one medium to another, then playing it from un-synced sources. re-blending it together. The result is a self-oscillating sound organism, breathing slowly in long repetitions, barely controllable and unique in its moment of happening.

    BOMAYÉ LIVE SPECIAL: NIHILOXICA

    Fri 29.06 21:00 // CONCERT // ACUD CLUB
    BOMAYÉ LIVE SPECIAL: NIHILOXICA

    When it turns dark in Kampala they switch on their analogue synthesizers and descend into the zone. Then the Nilotica Cultural Ensemble, by daytime a group of traditional Bugandan drummers, turns into its awe-inspiring alter ego, Nihiloxica. These night ghosts from the Ugandan capital play a form of African techno that is as hyper contemporary as it is ancient. Live on stage.

    ABOUT
     
    NIHILOXICA
    Comprised of several percussionists, a kit drummer and a synth player, Nihiloxica let the drums of Uganda’s countryside collide head on with the noisy, dark electronic rhythms of the country’s metropolis Kampala. Their industrial drum dance music is as trance inducing and spiritual as it is unstoppable and relentless. Nihiloxica’s first release, a self-titled four track tape from Winter 2017, became easily the most exciting release so far on Ugandans super hip tape platform full of exciting releases, Nyege Nyege Tapes. The Kampala-based label was established in January 2016 to explore, produce, and release outsider music from East and Central Africa by the same brains behind the annual Nyege Nyege Festival. Nihiloxica’s gig at Berlins Bomayé party series will be only their second haunting of Berlin after their appearance at CTM festival this year.

    DISCO VUMBI
    When he slips into his Disco Vumbi disguise, Kenayan Alai K bases
    Mijikenda rhythms, Chakacha and Benga music on a slick computer bounce, including some singing by the man himself. On stage Disco Vumbi is a mix of live and DJ set, having rocked clubs from Nairobi to Kampala. Originally from Nairobi/Kenya and now residing in Berlin, Alai started out as a part of the Ukoo Flani Hip-Hop collective, Kenya’s reply to the Wu-Tang Clan. As he became more and more interested in electronic music he started his solo project Disco Vumbi. The name refers to a saying from the 1970s when people would go out to a dance in the streets and came home covered in dust (vumbi). Disco Vumbi then provided the inaugurative release for Nyege Nyege Tapes, the beautiful “Boutiq Electroniq”.

    FLORIAN SIEVERS
    Rural to urban, drums to data. In the energetic megacities between the Sahara and the Cape of Good Hope, battalions of Afro Rhythm Computers are hammering out new beats. BOMAYÉ! in Berlins ACUD club brings you these beats of contemporary urban Africa. Bass music, programmed rhythms, African electronic club music, from Mali to Kenya, from Nigeria to South Africa, from Kuduro to Balani Show, or Gqom. Traditions get carried on in digital forms. Its still the motherland, but forget about your clichés. BOMAYE! is programmed by Florian Sievers.

    Wed 27.06 20:00 // CONCERT // ACUD BACKYARD
    ACUD BACKYARD SUMMER: SKY WALKING LABORATORY

    For the first edition of SKY WALKING LABORATORY at ACUD MACHT NEU we are overjoyed to present an incredible evening of concerts:
     
    After their amazing Tony Conrad tribute show at Kampnagel Hamburg earlier this year, PNIN aka Nika Son, Phillip Sollmann and Joachim Schütz, will play an intro drone concert featuring the hurdy gurdy, a guitar and synths to be followed by the exceptional NIKA SON (Next Time, Golden Pudel Club). KONRAD SPRENGER, who just released his album “Stack Music” on PAN, will present his midified robotic guitar on a six-channel loudspeaker system. MO CHAN aka Aiko Okamoto will accompany the shows with a selection of Japanese Extravaganza and Queer Electronics.
     
    Be invited to a wonderful evening of spontaneous music, exciting sound and fantastic artists!
     
    //
     
    Anlässlich der ersten Veranstaltung der neuen SKY WALKING LABORATORY Reihe im Berliner ACUD CLUB erzeugt KONRAD SPRENGER mit seiner robotisch gesteuerten E-Gitarre kaleidoskopische Klangteppiche auf einem 6 Punkt Amplifier System. Nach ihrem Debut anlässlich eines Tony Conrad Tributs in Hamburgs Kampnagel Fabrik, spielt die Formation PNIN aka Nika Son (Synthesizer), Phillip Sollmann (Hurdy Gurdy) und Joachim Schütz (Amplified Guitar) ein Drone Konzert, das nahtlos in das Set von NIKA SON überleitet, die ihre skulpturalen Tape-, Synth- und Sprachmodulationen präsentiert. Die aus Kyoto stammende AIKO AKAMOTO aka DJ MO CHAN begleitet die Konzerte mit einem Mix aus queeren Sounds und japanischer Extravaganza.

    ABOUT
     
    KONRAD SPRENGER [Pan]
    Jörg Hiller alias Konrad Sprenger ist neben seiner Zusammenarbeit mit Ellen Fullman, Arnold Dreyblatt, Oren Ambarchi und Jim O’Rourke wohl am bekanntesten für seine midifizierte sich selbst spielende Gitarre, aus der er ungehörte Klangteppiche und Rythmen live kreiert und durch den Raum – konzipiert für ein 6- Punkt Lautsprechersystem. Neben Veröffentlichungen auf seinem eigenen Label Choose ist im letzten Jahr auf PAN sein Album Stack Music entstanden. Konrad Sprenger tourte zuletzt mit Jim O’Rourke und Arnold Dreyblatt in Japan, und solo in Italien, wo er eng mit den Produzenten des Labels für Neue Musil Die Schachtel zusammenarbeitete. Die Kollaboration mit Sky Walking begann mit einem Beitrag für die erste Label Compilation 41’39 und der Installation eines modularen Orgel Prototyps zusammen mit Phillip Sollmann, ausgestellt in der Kestnergesellschaft Hannover und Mathew Gallery Berlin.
     
    //
     
    NIKA SON [Golden Pudel Club]
    Als Veranstalterin der Reihe Next Time und innovative Musikerin, widmet sie sich Nika Son der Suche nach aussergewöhlichen Klängen und Entdeckungen neuer und alter Technologien. In ihren Live Shows kommunizieren analoge Synthesizer mit manipulierten Bandmaschinen, filmische Klänge werden in eine ganz aussergewöhnliche Klangsprache übertragen, als betrachte man das Gehörte. Nika Breithaupt war unter anderem zu Gast bei Blurred Edges Hamburg, dem Meakusma Festival, Klub Katarakt (Kampnagel, Hamburg), dem internationalen Festival für experimentelle Musik Kampnagel Hambur. Sie kollaborierte unter anderem mit dem Ensemble Resonanz und dem Elektronik Musiker FX.
     
    //
     
    AIKO OKAMOTO AKA DJ MO CHAN [Female Pressure]
    … ist aktiv im Umfeld des Musikerinnen Netzwerks Female Pressure, Betreiberin des Projektraums TOKONOMA., Videokünstlerin und Musikerin. Zuletzt war Okamoto in Kassel für die künstlerische Leitung des Projekt Raums Narrowcast House und das damit verbundene Kulturradio anlässlich der Documenta 14 mitverantwortlich. Okamoto alias Mo-Chan verbindet als Dj einen Mix aus neuen, provokativen Produktionen mit der in Berlin bisher kaum aufzufindenden Subkultur des J-Pop, japanischer Extravaganza und Experimentalmusik. Sie ist zudem häufig als Gast und Initiatorin bei Podiumsgesprächen zum Thema Experimentelle Musik und Feminismus anzufinden.
     
    //
     
    SKY WALKING LABORATORY
    … ist eine Verantsaltungsreihe fur zeitgenössische Musik, die sich grenzüberschreitenden Formen von Improvisation, experimentellem Songwriting, selbsterfundenen Instrumenten, «dekonstruktuiertem» Jazz und queerer Elektronik widmet. Die Akteure haben die Möglichkeit, ganz frei und in Echtzeit zu agieren, während dem Publikum die Erfahrung des spontanen, direkten und provokanten Klangereignisses geboten wird.
     
    Im Umfeld des legendären Hamburger Golden Pudel Club als Band Projekt entstanden, entwickelte sich SKY WALKING zu einem Label internationaler Artists und nun zu einer Veranstaltungsreihe, präsentiert von Christian Naujoks und Peter Kersten, die am 27. Juni mit NIKA SON, KONRAD SPRENGER und AIKO OKAMOTO AKA DJ KOHLRABI im Berliner ACUD MACHT NEU ihren Auftakt nimmt und mit Künstler*Innen wie EVE ESSEX, FIONA MC GOVERN, PNIN und der SKY WALKING BAND fortgesetzt wird.
