Tag "Piano Interrupted"

„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.

Space for experiments and special adventures: We are very happy to bring together two internationally acclaimed musicians from two different spheres to meet on stage for the first time ever. In an evening with two parts and two premieres, acoustic instruments encounter live electronics, and experimental music can be experienced in an interplay with exclusive visuals.

The British composer and pianist Tom Hodge, who has been a guest at UM:LAUT for two times already with Piano Interrupted, has been collaborating with the successful electronic music producer Max Cooper since 2013. On the two-parts EP „Fragmented Self“, the two musicians create a sound alternating between organic warmth and electronic precision, between melancholy and deconstruction. In Berlin, Tom and Max realise their collaboration for the first time ever in a live form and present an improvised interpretation of „Fragmented Self“ as well as new tracks in between modern classical, ambient, glitch, minimal, and techno.

In the second part of the evening, UM:LAUT presents the German premiere of Max Cooper’s audio-visual performance „Emergence“: an extraordinary solo show with live electronics and live visuals, in which the renowned producer and biologist with a doctor’s degree combines his musical and graphical but also his experimental and scientific interests in one artistic concept. „Emergence“ had its very successful debut at the Decibel Experimental Music Festival in Seattle and can be experienced live in the frame of an exclusive tour in London, Paris and Amsterdam – and in the series of UM:LAUT at Radialsystem on 6 March!

Soul, jazz and electronic music as well as classical and minimal music are equal sources of inspiration for Tom Hodge. His musical versatility and curiosity make the Briton a composer much sought-after for film, dance and theatre productions. Amongst others, Hodge composed the music for the production „Waiting Room“ of the Thüringer Staatsballett and the choreographer Silvana Schröder. Beyond, the pianist has become known for his musical projects with which he congenially crosses borders. With Piano Interrupted, he explores the field between classical minimalism and club-oriented electronica. The duo has been on the stage of UM:LAUT already twice and published two albums on Denovali Records. With his interpretation of Daft Punk’s „Aerodynamic“ for strings and electronics, Hodge even contributed a hit to the legendary „Ministry of Sound Compilation“ in 2009. Together with Max Cooper, he already published the EPs „Fragmented Self I & II“ on Fields. Besides the first live realisation of their collaboration, they are also planning another EP for spring 2015.












The London-based producer Max Cooper is considered one of the major talents originating from the electronic scene in the course of the last years. His distinctive musical style is connected to both a long tradition of pioneers and the ambition to explore new territory with each new release. Cooper was born in Belfast in 1980 and has already been active as a DJ and producer since 1999. Simultaneous to his first release in 2007, he finished his dissertation in the field of genetics and evolution. After a few years in genetic research he opted for music as his main profession and has become an artist fascinating with the balancing act between the complexity and clinical precision as well as between the immediate catchiness and emotionality of his productions. Besides numerous releases on various labels and his album „Human“, which appeared in 2014 and was critically acclaimed by journalists and audiences alike, he is known for his collaborations with a wide range of artists such as Portishead, Hot Chip, Michael Nyman, Ólafur Arnalds, or Nils Frahm. As live act, Cooper is a guest worldwide in clubs and at renowned festivals like Mutek, the Igloofest in Montreal or the Awakenings Festival in Holland. Also known as a video artist and celebrated internationally for his audio-visual shows, his current live project „Emergence“ had its premiere at the Decibel Experimental Music Festival in Seattle in September 2014 and can be experienced live at UM:LAUT for the first time in Germany.












After the successful first collaboration in the last year, Denovali and UM:LAUT once again team up to present renowned acts as well as young and upcoming representatives of experimental music at Radialsystem in April.

Far beyond musical mainstream, the independent label Denovali has made its mark in the last couple of years with unique and ambitious releases of numerous artists. Rather than publishing music easily assignable to prevalent genre classifications, the work of the label focuses on artists crossing musical boundaries in fields such as experimental, ambient, dark jazz, electronica, jazz as far as new and classical music. With a similarly diversified approach, Denovali has curated and organised the „Swingfest – Experimental Music Festival“ in Essen, which has become famous all over Europe since its premiere in 2007. This year, the festival comes to Berlin and London already for the second time. We are happy to work together with the great people of Denovali again and present two days with numerous artists of the label’s roster as well as further international acts, thereby covering a wide range of experimental music.

With Murcof, one of the pioneers of the avantgarde scene in Mexico can be experienced live on the first night – with his minimalist ambient which fuses drones, techno and classical music, he is considered „one of the most renowned producers of abstract electronic music“ (Spex). The British composer and producer Greg Haines presents his acclaimed album „Where We Were“, on which he departs from his classically inspired chamber music and experiments with analogue synthesizers, percussions and atmospherical soundscapes. Having recently released their second album, Piano Interrupted, who celebrated their Germany debut on the stage of UM:LAUT in December 2012, explore the range between classical minimalism and clubby electronica with computer and piano. With Origamibiro, the audiovisual trio project around the musician and composer Tom Hill can be experienced live for the first time in Germany.












On the second night, Oneohtrix Point Never, an artist who released one of the most remarkable experimental electronic albums of the preceding year on the legendary label Warp with „R Plus Seven“, can be experienced live on stage. The American, whose sound installations were exhibited at New York’s MoMA and who recently created the music to Sofia Coppola’s film „The Bling Ring“, has become one of the stars of the international IDM scene with his abstract, unconventional and innovative sound. As hardly another formation, Brandt Brauer Frick stand for the fusion of danceable electronica and hand-made music. For their multilayered sound between techno and jazz, the Berliners do not only work with synthesizers and samplers but also with classical instruments like piano, violin, cello, trombone, tuba, and harp – the performances with their ten-person ensemble have been celebrated worldwide. At Swingfest Berlin, Brandt Brauer Frick return to their original core as trio with live drums and their deep, minimalist grooves. Ten years after their debut on the label Ninja Tune, the Polish nu jazz duo Skalpel presents one of their rare live sets at Radialsystem. With Sankt Otten, we are happy to announce another exciting Denovali act joining the line-up – we are looking forward to the duo’s atmospheric music with influences from ambient to trip hop to the 70s Berlin School sound. Beyond this, the programme of the second night comprises Talvihorros‚ atmospherical soundscapes betweeen ambient and noise as well as the cinematic compositions of the Glasgow-based sound designer John Lemke.

Sven Kacirek - UM:LAUT - Umlaut - Radialsystem - Berlin - Konzert
















About one year after our first UM:LAUT adventure, we are happy to celebrate with you and welcome two exciting acts at Radialsystem to present their work for the first time in Berlin.

Originally educated as a jazz drummer, Sven Kacirek has dedicated himself to the acoustic realisation of programmed drum’n’bass grooves, invented new drum concepts and integrated effects and loop stations into conventional drumming. In the pieces of the Hamburg-based composer and multi-instrumentalist, classic drumming can almost not be heard any more, as his drum kit has been replaced with tons of tiny things made out of paper, wood or glass to knock on, to hit or to scratch. His sound consists of more than just fancy beats: All the elements in a piece down to the melody are casually constructed from small percussive patterns which he arranges in layers. Although he does not use any synthesizers, the result sometimes appears so electronic that one might invent the somewhat self-contradictory label „acoustic electronica“ for Sven Kacirek. Many of his ideas develop from live concerts, where he multiplies himself with samplers, calmly improvising and generating very elaborate structures. Apart from his career as solo musician, Sven works as composer for film, dance and ballet and has collaborated with directors and choreographers such as Dario Aguirre, Angela Guerreiro and Johnny Lloyd. For his record „The Kenya Sessions“ which he recorded with Kenyan musicians, he received the „The German Record Critics‘ Award“ in 2011. With „Scarlet Pitch Dreams“, Sven Kacirek released his new album in April, thereby fusing his characteristic elements of marimbas and calimbas with timbals, cymbals and prepared piano into a unique mosaic. After playing numerous concerts with artists such as Hauschka, Jan Plewka or Jan Dvorak in Hamburg and New York, one of Germany’s most unique percussionists can now finally be experienced live in Berlin.












Piano Interrupted is the common project of the pianist Tom Hodge and the electronic musician Franz Kirmann. Equipped with computer and piano, the duo explores the range between classical minimalism and club-oriented electronica. Whereas Hodge’s piano playing is inspired by classical music and jazz, Kirmann has a passion for digitial deconstruction and deep dubstep tunes. The project was initiated by the English musician and film composer Hodge, who contributed a hit to the legendary „Ministry of Sound Compilation“ with his interpretation of Daft Punk’s „Aerodynamic“ for strings and electronics in 2009. By sampling the warm piano sounds live and completing them with characteristic glitches, clicks and sub-bass sounds, Franz Kirmann brings a major contribution to the sound of Piano Interrupted in that it constantly changes between organic warmth and electronic precision – in their live sets, this results in a unique fusion of analogue and digital improvisation. On Lobe Records and Photogram Recordings, Piano Interrupted already released two EPs praised by the press. The musicians have just recently completed their work on the film score „Papa Hédi“ and will release their first album „Two By Four“ – which was mastered by Nils Frahm – in the beginning of December. For their German premiere in the series of UM:LAUT Tom Hodge and Franz Kirmann will be accompanied by Greg Hall on cello and Eric Young on percussion.
