SATURDAY 30 MARCH 2019
AT WEST GERMANY (SKALITZERSTR 133)
EILBACHER / SCHOFIELD
Announcing the first ever tour by the new duo of Max Eilbacher and Ren Schofield, two of America’s great young soundthinkers. Both emerged after the great Noise Recession of 09 with reet style...
Schofield is of course Container, who flipped a whole paradigm when he went from making crumbling basement vibe tape music to beatdown techno. He puts pierogi on pizza and is a food blogger.
Eilbacher, perhaps best known as the tonal anchor in the mighty Horselords’ rhythm section, is a sound artist, electroacoustic composer and audio designer, filmmaker and chef, thinker and a fruit beer drinker.
Schofield is from Providence RI and Eilbacher from Baltimore MD so to best imagine this tour, picture two seafood shacks w goggly eyes and happy mouths in a euro rental car hauling a maxmsp and a groovebox across that old continent, the whole tableau poorly photoshopped ads to the rightness. Make brain zap sounds over thunder drum and smacking-snares and audio completes the picture.
Anyhow, their duo promises to be one of the years most exciting assemblages. 1 part Eilbacher computer music complexity and one part Schofield beat-garngs.
Both have released work on Spectrum Spools, Eilbachers latest is available thru Purely Physical Teeny Tapes.

Polymedia artist Jonathan Sachse Mikkelsen out of Denmark creates environments and extensive installations with an interest in technology and sensory experience.

G Lucas Crane is a sound artist, performer, and musician whose work focuses on media confusion, sonic mind control and time travel. His cassette tape sound practice explores the liminal spaces of hybrid analogue aesthetics. In 2005 his time machine was a glowing crystal throne. Today, it is a CV controlled jellyfish in a plexi piezoelectric braincase cylinder. He is co-founder of The Silent Barn, an experimental performance space in Bushwick, Brooklyn. His current project, Decoder 2017 , a theater collaboration with director Mallory Catlett, plays as a work in progress throughout 2019. He is currently pursuing a masters in Sound Studies and Sonic Arts at the Universität Der Kunst, Berlin.
Auguste Vickunaite uses reel to reel tape recorders to play and create sounds what contain diverse field recordings and malfunctions of the old technology itself. Through manipulation, the organic sound of the tape recording loops becomes unrecognizable and dependent on the hand movements of the player.
DJ Puddle hosts the monthly acoustic-techno-deutschrap-hörspiel sendung DEEP PUDDLE on Cashmere Radio and djs most often at spätis and poetry festivals in Berlin, Baden-Württemberg, and Hessen. She is also known as Wilted Woman in certain circles.
