Drei aktuelle Facetten der experimentellen elektronischen Musik werden heute Abend in Münster vorgestellt. Der polnische Künstler Robert Piotrowicz ist einer der wichtigsten Elektronikmusiker in Polen. Er hat vor einigen Jahren das internationale Festival Musica Genera und das gleichnamige Label in Warschau gegründet. Seine eigene Musik erzeugt er mit einem modularen Doepfer-Synthisystem, mit dem er Sinustöne und flirrende Sounds extrem im Raum tanzen lässt. Aalfang mit Pferdekopf sorgen mit jedem Auftritt für eine Überraschung: vergesst alle Genres! Für diesen Abend haben sie eine Grusel-Hommage an die Prog-Rocker Van der Graaf Generator angekündigt. Eric Cordier ist ein französischer Klangkünstler, der detailgetreue Lautsprechermusik komponiert. Akusmatik kann auch sexy sein!
Geräuschwelten wird gefördert durch das Kulturamt der Stadt Münster, den Beauftragten der Bundesregierung für Kultur und Medien sowie durch den deutsch-französischen Fond für zeitgenössische Musik / Impuls neue Musik.

Aalfang mit Pferdekopf

„Day old vomit on the sidewalk of Miami on a dank summer day…smells nicer than this.“ – NME

Grown inside a mouldy second hand copy of Van Der Graaf Generator’s „Pawn Hearts“ Aalfang Mit Pferdekopf 2012 is a very notedly stale experience.
For the first Aalfang-gig since five years M. Uhlig hired a wellunknown guitarist to cover up the still uninspired ennui. Expect several difficult Olaf Malolepski-compositions to be played during the concert!
Note: No ragnarökr-ambient this time! Sorry.

For wasting time:

Eric Cordier

Musician & tape music composer

Born in 1963.
Composer of several tens of tape music pieces alone or in collaboration with, notably Jean-Luc Guionnet, Eric Cordier has been invited in the contemporary music studio : GRAME (Lyon) from 89 to 91 & la Grande Fabrique (Dieppe) from 92 to 98. He works in his personal studio since that time.
Eric Cordier, close to “musique concrete”, has built a musical style in which the sound texture is always used in the respect of his own specificities, limiting the impact of the sound treatments. Each musical piece is composed around a strong concept or a deep thematic, according to questions of society or memory.
Beside numerous “électroacoustiques” compositions for tape only, Eric Cordier’s experience in matter of mixed music is based on collaboration with improvisers : Seijiro Murayama, Jean Luc Guionnet, Dominique Regef, or contemporary musicians as Georges Pennetier.
His music has been premiered in the following : Synthèse (Bourges), Why Note & Diese (Dijon), Tramway (Rouen), Mémoire Vives /actart77, Excentrique (Chaumont sur Loire), Licences (Paris), Ca vaut jamais le réel (Montreuil), Bonlieu Scène Nationale (Annecy), RME (Chartres) et jouées à Futura (Crest) en 96 et 08, at theatre Merlan (Marseille) & Drakkar-DSN Dieppe Scène Nationale.
