Tag "múm"

„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!

What makes humans different from other beings? What influences us to empathise with others in certain situations? Inspired by the research of Simon Baron-Cohen („Zero Degrees of Empathy“), the London-based performance collective Neon Dance explores the human capacity of empathy in its latest production in musical and scenic form.

For the series of UM:LAUT, „Empathy“ will be realised for the first time as interdisciplinary live music version: In a set design created with light and laser technique, five dancers encounter an extraordinary ensemble consisting of the sound wizards Casper Clausen and Mads Brauer of Efterklang and Liima, the multi-instrumentalist Shahzad Ismaily from New York and the Icelandic cellist Gyða Valtýsdóttir of Múm.

Neon Dance is an interdisciplinary dance company from London which develops and realises productions for the stage as well as for film and other media. The company was founded in 2003 and is directed by the choreographer Adrienne Hart. The group regularly collaborates with artists from diverse disciplines. The dance production „Falling From Trees“, created in 2010 with music by the multi-instrumentalist Peter Broderick, was presented at Glastonbury Festival, with Broderick’s soundtrack being successfully released through the label Erased Tapes. In collaboration with the duo SpringerParker from Berlin, Neon Dance developed the dance opera „There Are Places In Our Heads One Can Travel To“, which celebated its premiere in Norway at Barents Spektakel Festival. With „Archived’it“, the collective developed an interactive online project in 2012, which allows the users to rearrange their own version of the dance film „Dance on Steps“ from 1934 to a soundtrack by the Icelandic composer Ólafur Arnalds. Together with UM:LAUT, Neon Dance realised the unique live music version of the dance production „The Intention“ with the acclaimed pianist Nils Frahm and the cellist Anne Müller on the stage of Radialsystem V in 2013.

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.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

„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.
