Tag "Improvisation"

„Fortunately múm does not play themselves to fore but see themselves – just like the piano players in the early times of silent film – as accompanying musicians. This works so well that one can imagine the 74 minutes as an album. The audience is of the same opinion – and applauds enthusiastically!“ (taz – die tageszeitung about the UM:LAUT shows in 2016)

The globally celebrated band múm plays a live score to a masterpiece of silent film: After their celebrated performances in the last two years, the Icelanders return to the stage of UM:LAUT right in time for Berlinale. Together with the percussionist Samuli Kosminen, the founding members of múm, Gunnar Örn Tynes and Örvar Smárason, perform live music to the wonderful classic movie „Menschen am Sonntag“ – a timeless and vivid portrait of Berlin and its young inhabitants by the end of the 1920s. The semi-documentary film, which is rarely screened these days, was already considered a milestone of cinema shortly after its release in 1930 and served as a springboard to Hollywood for a group of filmmakers around the young Billy Wilder. As a film score never existed, the screenings of the film were accompanied with songs by Marlene Dietrich in most cases. This is reason enough for the electronica and postrock explorers of múm dedicating themselves again to this document of history in the city of its creation – thereby also exclusively celebrating a record release at Radialsystem V: Our friends at the renowned indie label Morr Music publish a limited vinyl edition with live tracks of the previous UM:LAUT shows.

Playful electronica, spheric ambient sounds, experimental indie pop: With their numerous albums and diverse projects crossing the boundaries of various musical genres, the internationally acclaimed band MÚM has never fit into prevalent categories. múm was founded by Gunnar Örn Tynes and Örvar Smárason in 1997, later joined by twin sisters Kristín Anna and Gyda Valtýsdóttir. Their original and unique sound as well as the playful experimentation with traditional, electronic and unconventional instruments has quickly turned the „possibly most original Icelandic band“ (ByteFM) into one of the most popular acts from far North. During the last years the former quartet from Reykjavík has merged into an open collective exploring the boundaries of experimental listening experiences with various musician friends and in unpredictably changing lineups. Besides seven albums, several EPs and singles on Morr Music and Fat Cat Records, they were involved in numerous collaborations and projects such as a score to the film „Battleship Potemkin“ by Sergei Eisenstein, music for the theatre piece „Blái hnötturinn“ by Andri Snær Magnason, or the much acclaimed orchestra composition „Drowning“ with pianist Hauschka and the MDR Sinfonieorchester. With SAMULI KOSMINEN, a musician who regularly joins the band on tour will be on stage for the two concerts at Radialsystem V. He is one of the most sought-after and adventurous percussionists and producers of Scandinavia. Besides his virtuosity and unique sound creations, his rare live performances are particularly striking due to his extensive array of tools comprising collected and found objects and instruments.

MENSCHEN AM SONNTAG (People on Sunday) is regarded as one of „the outstanding works of the German silent film avantgarde“ (The International Encyclopedia of Film). In a semi-documentary manner, the film depicts the lives of young people in the metropolis of Berlin by the end of the 1920s. Although the film falls into the final stage of the great era of German silent cinema, it is neither nostalgic nor old-fashioned, but – with its unconventional and surprising images of people, locations and atmospheres, which are captured in a documentary style – it appears more like a protest against the beaten tracks of the old narrative cinema. Apart from a few well-known protagonists such as the modern dancer Valeska Gert, the film replaces star actors and practised movements with amateur actors and a fresh, spontaneous way of acting. The still undestroyed scenery of Berlin, its people, its streets, the Grunewald Forest, and the Havel River serve both as setting and as supernumeraries – in „Menschen am Sonntag“, not much is happening, but its charming, honest and slightly ironic observation of the capital city in a summery weekend atmosphere make the film a vivid, entertaining and timeless document. For the then very young filmmakers, the film, which was created in partly chaotic and precarious production conditions, was both an adventure and a springboard – with Billy Wilder winning several Oscars in his career to come. The history of its creation makes the film one of the first independent films and a forerunner of the neorealism of the Postwar Era.

Two extraordinary live musicians with a shared passion for experimentation and club music: The Norwegian pianist Bugge Wesseltoft, a pioneer of electronic jazz, joins forces with the renowned drummer and producer Christian Prommer for an exclusive live session at the mighty hall of Radialsystem V. With openness and curiosity this special duo creates an electro-acoustic musical blend between jazz, funk, ambient, and groovy house music. Bugge Wesseltoft, who is considered the trailblazer of the young Nordic jazz generation and one of the most innovative pianists of today, and Christian Prommer, known for his collaboration with artists such as DJ Hell, Henrik Schwarz or Tony Allen, play together for the very first time in Germany: An interplay in the experimental spectrum between classical and electronic instrumentation and a unique live project fusing the musical biographies and manifold qualities of its protagonists – without the corset of a predetermined course, open for unexpected developments, spontaneity and the impulses of each other.

The Norwegian Bugge Wesseltoft is regarded as one of the most innovative jazz pianists of today. Since the 1990s, Wesseltoft has collaborated with numerous important figures of the Nordic and international jazz world like Jan Garbarek, Terje Rypdal, Jon Christensen, Nils Petter Molvaer, and Arild Andersen, as well as with stylistically quite different artists such as the drummer Billy Cobham, the Brazilian pop star Gilberto Gil or the techno legend Laurent Garnier. With his „New Conception of Jazz“ he aims at a synthesis of live electronics and the means of improvised jazz – his debut album of the same name, on which he integrates elements from priligy kaufen deep house, ambient music, drum’n’bass as well as from soul and funk, is considered as ground-breaking since its release in 1996 until today. Wesseltoft has played on countless stages around the world and released more than 15 albums, just recently with the Norwegian classical violinist and viola player Henning Kraggerud and with the successful techno producer Henrik Schwarz and Dan Berglund, bassist of e.s.t. With his label Jazzland he has created a platform for the Norwegian scene with artistic freedom beyond mainstream.

Influenced by jazz, funk and soul, but also house, Detroit techno and electronica, Christian Prommer constantly explores new musical ground beyond traditional genre boundaries. With his various projects and collaborations, he has been one of the most prestigious drummers, producers and DJs for more than two decades. Apart from coining the label „nu jazz“ with Fauna Flash in the 1990s, he has repeatedly experimented in the field between club music and jazz – be it as founding member of the Trüby Trio and Voom:Voom, or as author and producer for artists such as Kruder & Dorfmeister and DJ Hell. In addition he has collaborated with musicians like Carl Craig, Tony Allen, Till Brönner, Mousse T, Wolfgang Haffner, Klaus Doldinger, Henrik Schwarz, Johannes Brecht, or Solomun, and has been invited as live musician and DJ to renowned clubs and festivals such as Sonar in Barcelona, World Wide Festival in Singapur, Crossover Jazz Festival in Tokyo, North Sea Jazz Festival in Rotterdam, and Montreux Jazz Festival. In 2007 he started his project „Drumlesson“ with an instrumental jazz version of Derrick May’s Detroit techno hymn „Strings of Life,“ which ended up being an international club hit. For ten years, he has performed live with his „Drumlessons“ and alternating outstanding guest musicians, thereby combining his jazz roots with his passion for electronic club music. Prommer has released a large number of albums and singles on various renowned labels, he has been nominated for the Echo and received the German Record Critics‘ Award.

„For quite some time the UM:LAUT series has proven to be one of the most fertile playgrounds in Berlin for established musicians with the courage to experiment“ (Groove Magazin).
We are very happy to celebrate with old friends and new guests and invite you to a special double bill concert exactly five years after kicking it off with Nils Frahm and A Winged Victory For The Sullen at the mighty hall of Radialsystem V.

The Notwist, Lali Puna, Tied & Tickled Trio, 13 & God: With his numerous bands and collaborations, Markus Acher has contributed various relevant and exciting chapters to the recent history of music, thereby constantly re-exploring his sound universe and repeatedly widening the horizon of pop music. With his project Rayon, he has been undertaking explorations in the field of film music for almost twenty years. In November the first album on the renowned indie label Morr Music is released: hypnotically interwoven and minimalistically arranged instrumental worlds which have come into being without any moving images but yet appear like a wondrous soundtrack to a lost documentary film. „A Beat of Silence“ creates an original experimental sound cosmos – melodies, loops and arpeggios, fine subtle shades, blurred soundscapes and gentle arrangements are layered to fascinating electroacoustic symphonies. Within the series of UM:LAUT, Rayon presents the new album for the first time live and in one of the rare concerts with a full band and an extensive instrumentation.

Four years ago, Piano Interrupted celebrated their German live premiere at RADIALSYSTEM V. After numerous concerts and two acclaimed releases, Tom Hodge and Franz Kirmann return to the stage of UM:LAUT together with the double bass player Tim Fairhall to present their third album „Landscapes of the Unfinished“. The trio explores the range between classical minimalism and clubby electronica. Live in concert Hodge’s piano and clarinet are sampled, processed and extended by Kirmann’s characteristic glitches, clicks and sub basses: A unique fusion of analogue and digital improvisation, a sound alternating between organic warmth and electronic precision. For their work on the new material, Hodge and Kirmann have – in contrast to the preceding, complexly produced albums – opened themselves to a more spontaneous composition and recording process inspired by their live performances. The search for new impulses as well as the motivation to reflect, question and develop their preceding work further also brought them on a trip to the Senegalese capital of Dakar. From there they did not only bring new impressions, field recordings and recorded radio snippets with them but also numerous recordings of jam sessions with local musicians. In the following process Hodge and Kirmann deconstructed, alienated and reconstructed the material from West Africa, thereby creating pulsating soundscapes and earthy textures which form the basis for sophisticated lines of piano, bass, clarinet and electroacoustic sound structures. Live in concert the tracks are being reinterpreted and complemented with improvisations, making the trio’s concerts an experience of a dynamic dialogue full of surprising moments.

Playful electronica, spheric ambient sounds, experimental indie pop: With their numerous albums and diverse projects crossing the boundaries of various musical genres, the globally celebrated band múm has never fit into prevalent categories. On 13 and 14 February, the Icelanders return to Berlin as a trio in order to present a special silent film concert in the context of the series of UM:LAUT: Together with the percussionist Samuli Kosminen, the founding members of múm, Gunnar Örn Tynes and Örvar Smárason, perform an improvised live score to „People on Sunday“, a masterpiece of silent film at Radialsystem V. We are excited!

The semi-documentary film, which is rarely screened these days, was already considered a milestone of cinema shortly after its release in 1930 – and also served as a springboard to Hollywood for its makers Billy Wilder, Edgar Ulmer, Fred Zinnemann and the Siodmak brothers. For this classic, a vivid portrait of Berlin and its young inhabitants by the end of the 1920s, a film score never existed. In most cases the screenings of the film were accompanied with songs by Marlene Dietrich. Therefore it is high time the electronica and post-rock explorers of múm dedicate themselves to this contemporary document in the city of its creation in the frame of two unique concert evenings on the shores of the Spree River!

We are happy to present the two silent film concerts in cooperation with Jetztmusik Festival Mannheim. The annual festival has become a major cultural event in the region of Mannheim and beyond since its first edition in 2007 – with electronic music encountering film, literature or fine arts in extraordinary formats and in diverse locations. Following an evening curated by UM:LAUT in Mannheim, this project marks a continuation of the cooperation between our series in Berlin and the Jetztmusik Festival.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Masters at work: With the celebrated experimental pianist Hauschka, the Finnish percussion wizard Samuli Kosminen and the cellist Jeffrey Zeigler, former member of the legendary Kronos Quartet, UM:LAUT brings three exceptional and internationally renowned musicians to its stage for their first concerts ever in Germany. Entirely based on free improvisation and the exploration of space with sound and rhythm, this unique live project fuses the musical biographies and manifold qualities of its protagonists – without the corset of a pre-defined genre, open for unexpected developments, experiments and spontaneous impulses. Hauschka Kosminen Zeigler celebrated their debut at the festival River to River in New York in 2013, with Feast of Music describing it as „a transporting, ecstatic experience.“

Wooden sticks, pieces of felt, tape strips, table-tennis balls – with great inventiveness and various everyday objects, the pianist and composer Volker Bertelmann alias Hauschka creates an unexpected world of sounds with the piano. He is regarded as one of the most remarkable modern proponents of the prepared piano. The percussive or rustling sounds, which make one assume the usage of percussions and electronic devices, give the atmospherically dense, rhythm-based compositions of the Düsseldorf-based artist a lyrical quality. Hauschka’s music moves between sound art and experimental, modern classical and chamber music, electronica and pop – with his last solo records „Salon des Amateurs“ and „Abandoned City“ even broadening his spectrum to minimal techno and house. Some of his fourteen albums (Universal/Deutsche Grammophon, City Slang, FatCat a.o.) were also created in collaboration with other musicians. During the last years, he recorded an album with the exceptional American violinist Hilary Hahn, composed music for Döris Dörrie’s film “Glück” and launched a new live project with the renowned techno DJ Henrik Schwarz at Muziekgebouw in Amsterdam. Apart from performing world-wide as solo artist at concerts and festivals, Hauschka recently wrote compositions as artist in residence for the MDR symphony orchestra in Leipzig.

Samuli Kosminen is one of the most sought-after and adventurous percussionists and producers of Scandinavia. Besides his virtuosity and unique sound creations, his rare live performances are particularly striking due to his extensive array of tools comprising collected and found objects and instruments. Kosminen has contributed to more than 80 albums, composed music for theatre and film and collaborated with artists such as Ólafur Elíasson, Kronos Quartet, Emiliana Torrini, Jónsi Birgisson of Sigur Rós, or Pekka Kuusisto. Beyond, he regularly plays live with the Finnish star accordionist Kimmo Pohjonen – the duo’s project „Uniko“ with the renowned Kronos Quartet was presented live in numerous countries. Kosminen is also part of the successful Icelandic band múm and regularly plays live with them on tour.

The New York Times describes Jeffrey Zeigler’s playing of the cello as „excellent“ and praises the „unforced simplicity and beauty of tone“ of the American, who was a member of the legendary and award-winning Kronos Quartet until 2013. The innovative and internationally acclaimed ensemble from San Francisco has worked with renowned composers such Arvo Pärt, Steve Reich or Philip Glass as well as with musicians from various backgrounds – thereby „influencing the contemporary paradigm of chamber music more profoundly than any composer or musician ever before“ (laut.de). Jeffrey Zeigler has played thousands of concerts world-wide, premiered more than 200 works and contributed to more than twenty albums on different labels. Amongst others, he can be heard on Norah Jones’ album „Not too late“ as well as in the soundtracks of Paolo Sorrentino’s Oscar-winning „La Grande Bellezza“ and Darren Aronofsky’s fantasy epic „The Fountain“. In 2014 Zeigler released his solo album „Something of Life“, which also contains pieces composed especially for him by Philip Glass, Glenn Kotche and John Zorn.

The project around Casper Clausen of the successful Danish indie band Efterklang, the British multi-instrumentralist Greg Haines, and the drummer and producer Francesco Donadello, considers itself an open forum for creative processes and spontaneous musical exchange. For each concert, further musicians are being invited, with renowned artists such as Peter Broderick, André de Ridder, Dustin O’Halloran, Andrea Belfi, Anne Müller, or Jóhann Jóhannsson being regular guests of the ensemble. This time the band will be joined by Tatu Rönkkö, Finland’s finest in improvisational percussion. Without predetermination and defined boundaries, the shows of The Group bring together new ideas, different impulses and stylistic diversity – the musicians respond to each other, with each other, to the space, and to the audience. With every sound and every piece being created anew, the project gives an intimate insight into the spontaneous interaction and the collective composition process. Making use of their wide range of electronic and acoustic instruments, The Group create an extraordinary and intense live experience: improvised chamber pop between ambient, electronica, dub, experimental and krautrock.

Casper Clausen is a founding member and the singer of the Danish band Efterklang, with which he has been on tour world-wide for more than ten years and released four studio albums until now (4AD, The Leaf Label). Together with Efterklang, he has been involved in concert projects with symphony orchestras and various film productions. Beyond, Casper Clausen is founding member and curator of the online radio The Lake.

The British composer and producer Greg Haines has already released four solo albums on Denovali Records. On his acclaimed album „Where We Were“, released in 2013, he moved away from his classically inspired chamber music and devoted himself to analogue synthesizers, percussions and atmospheric soundscapes. Besides his releases and solo concerts, he is involved in collaborations with numerous other musicians and artists such as the choreographer David Dawson, the Dutch National Ballett, the Royal Opera House, Peter Broderick, and The Alvaret Ensemble.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Italian drummer and producer Francesco Donadello regularly works with renowned musicians from various genres such as Modeselektor, Thom Yorke, A Winged Victory for the Sullen, Chilly Gonzales, Jóhann Jóhannsonn, or Mouse on Mars. As drummer, he was a member of the Italian post- and indie rock band Giardini di Mirò; for the last few years, he has become more and more interested in experimental music and modular synthesizers.

The guitarist and producer Martyn Heyne is a founding member of Trygghet and the Levenmuster Collective, with which he developed the album „Two View“ as well as the DVD „Sensing City“. During the last few years, he has worked with the likes of Nils Frahm, The National, Orcas, Peter Broderick, and many more for recordings, concerts and at his Lichte Studio in Berlin. In 2011, he supported Nils Frahm with his solo show; recently, he was on tour with the Danish band Efterklang.
