20.02.2011 KAYO DOT // TARTAR LAMB // JEREMIAH CYMERMAN – LEVEE (EX BANG BANG CLUB)
KAYO DOT (New York // Hydrahead)
Kayo Dot is one of the most outstanding musical formations of our time, experimenting with the dark and even anti-aesthetic side of emotion in sound. Claustrophobic outbursts of averse noise are as well part of the spheres that surround this music, as subtlety, beauty and fragile space. Kayo Dot is far from the intentional and conceptual depiction of the avantgarde, one might say it is the perfect transformation of the subconcious into sound.
TARTAR LAMB II (New York // TZADIK)
TARTAR LAMB is a satellite project of KAYO DOT, consisting of all Kayo Dot’s members plus clarinet deconstructionist, JEREMIAHCYMERMAN. Tartar Lamb’s music is distinguished from its mothership band’s by its specific use of modular repetitive forms – small musical phrases that are repeated and stretched and shrunk in time, with non-repetitive melodies swirling about. Cymerman provides the percussion by use of his extended clarinet techniques and electronic processing. TartarLamb’s music is like hyper-elaborate, horrifying ambient music, every moment filled with information while washing over and enveloping the listener in constant atmosphere. Tartar Lamb’s music is like a whale swallowing a comet, slicing up your face with the shards of ice it belches from its bloody blow-hole.
JEREMIAH CYMERMAN (New York // TZADIK)
Jeremiah Cymerman (pronounced SIMMER-MAN) is a composer and clarinetist, based in New York City since 2002. Described by Time Out New York as “one of downtown’s most inventive and resourceful composer-performers” Cymerman has worked with a broad range of contemporary artists including Otomo Yoshihide, John Zorn, Jandek, Evan Parker, Peter Evans, Anthony Coleman, Jessica Pavone, Toby Driver, Lawrence D. “Butch” Morris, Nate Wooley, Mary Halvorson, and Matthew Welch among many others.

08.01.2011 SCHOKOLADEN – BERLIN CHILD ABUSE & BATALJ
(NY //Lovepump United)
Child Abuse is a band that sounds like the reanimated corpse of Miles Davis hatefucked all the guys in Morbid Angel, moved to Brooklyn, and raised the resulting children on Bach, Nintendo, and methamphetamines.
(Berlin / Gothenburg)
30.01.2011 WESTGERMANY – BERLIN GAYBEAST & GELBART
(Minneapolis // Skin graft)
“Gay Beast are one of the few bands i’ve seen around that are seriously challenging the form and content of modern rock music. Their compositions and execution are ambitious and effective. A truly unique and weird band.”
- Weasel Walter
(Berlin/Tel Aviv // Defekt records)
Adi Gelbart is a genius mad scientist, a true musically-accomplished giant among hordes of laptop charlatans, blending all colours and shades of electronic pop into his test tubes (old analogue machines, guitars, rewired battery operated instruments, hand-built gadgets – did I already say mad?), to marvel at each resulting explosion of sound.
