T.RAUMSCHMIERE ambient set
Clearly a new meaning of the term ambient is needed to describe the music on this album more accurately. It is music that never sounds deliberate yet at the same time is so compelling, which might have something to do with the fact that Shitkatapult label founder Marco Haas aka T.Raumschmiere is the one behind it. As T.Raumschmiere, Haas produces a sound with influences ranging from bass music and punk rock to industrial; the names of his records speak best for themselves: Monstertruckdriver, Sick Like Me, I Tank U… everyone knows what the deal is here. It is only logical that his new album is just called ‘T.Raumschmiere.’ This record is certainly an excellent lubricant for dreams.
Haas is known for his take-no-prisoners approach to his live sets, which feature distorted beats, grueling basses, and steep descents. Now for the flipside, the negative image of the sound that made T.Raumschmiere famous, the sound that has allowed us to get closer to the understanding of this magic ambient music. The shadow of T.Raumschmiere does not come in with massive beats and basses, yet it is so imposing and so dark that it seems within our grasp.
In addition to his duties as label manager, musician, and DJ, Haas has also worked as a producer for other artists such as Dieter Meier, Fraktus, Barbara Morgenstern, Das Bierbeben, and Ofrin over the past few years. The new album by Shrubbn!!, his collaboration with Ulli Bomans, will be released on Shitkatapult.
In Hall 1, various Artists, Musicians and Developers will present short concert/presentations up to 20 minutes long. During the presentations, other than performances, presenters will explain the technology or instruments used and answer questions. A maximum of one half of the time (10 minutes) will be for speaking or explanations.
The Gespraechskonzerte will also be presented over video monitors and projections so one can view the very finely detailed products and technical usage. The edited recordings of these events will also be available online for future use.
The term and concept of Gespraechskonzerte or "Discussion Concert" was coined by the late German Physicist and pioneer of electronic music, Oskar Sala. He used this phrase at times when he would perform on the Trautonium with discussion to follow the concert.
