Tag "Morr Music"

„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.

We are very happy to welcome back the globally celebrated band múm to play a live score to a masterpiece of silent film: After their celebrated silent film concerts in 2016 and our co-presentation at Copenhagen’s CPH PIX, the Icelanders return to the stage of UM:LAUT right in time for Berlinale film festival on 11 and 12 February. Together with the percussionist Samuli Kosminen, the founding members of múm, Gunnar Örn Tynes and Örvar Smárason, perform a live score to „Menschen am Sonntag“ as a trio.

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 postrock explorers of múm dedicate themselves again 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!

„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.

„Feathermagnetik is a majestic micro/macrocosm. – A shapeshifter who’s darkness is strewn
with glowing lights.“

With special regard to our interdisciplinary approach, we’re delighted to announce our next
UM:LAUT adventure with Icelandic composer and audio-visual artist Kira Kira. As a founding member of Kitchen Motors, a label and collective based on experiments in electronic music and arts, she continually breaks boundaries between forms and genres through a repertoire that includes work for theatre, film, dance and art installations – as well as playful multi-disciplinary productions. We are very happy that Kira Kira presents her third album „Feathermagnetik“, her first release with Morr Music’s sublabel „Sound Of A Handshake“, at Radialsystem in the series of UM:LAUT on 8 July. For the new record she has collaborated with a wild array of amazing musicians – among them Finnish percussion wizard and producer Samuli Kosminen and trumpeter Eiríkur Orri Ólafsson of the Icelandic band múm, bassist Borgar Magnason, an active force with the Bedroom Community label, as well as Finnish violin wonder Pekka Kuusisto – thereby creating fragile formations of music and playful sound collages between electronica, glitch and experimental.

For the record release concert at Radialsystem, Kira Kira is joined by Samuli Kosminen on custom-made percussion, trumpeter Eiríkur Orri Ólafsson and special guest Greg Cohen playing the double-bass – as well as by the Icelandic filmmaker Sara Gunnarsdóttir who provides the underlying visuals. Beforehand, sound explorer Samuli Kosminen, who is a member of the great band múm and has collaborated with Hauschka and Kronos Quartet, plays one of his rare special treat solo sets. We’re excited!

Beforehand we celebrate the German film premiere of Kira Kira’s first feature film as director and screenwriter „Grandma Lo-Fi: The Basement Tapes of Sigrídur Níelsdóttir“. The movie has recently been invited to New York’s Museum of Modern Art and is currently screened at numerous festivals world-wide. And to complete our lovely gathering we’ll have barbecue and drinks at the beautiful river terrace of Radialsystem.
