FLAMINGO CREATURES (Free Improv, Electro-Acoustics - Berlin/Cologne)

Ruth-Maria Adam and Ronnie Oliveras have been around as part of the Datashock collective for quite a few years now, but their adventures as a duo are mostly undiscovered. Flamingo Creatures combining fearless experimentalism with a great sense of humor and an intoxicating playfulness in their approach to music making. With the help of electronics, bells, a violin and various percussion instruments the couple develops musical dialogues that speak to you in the most handsome way one can think of. Like Hans-Joachim Roedelius waltzing with Joan La Barbara while Smegma play (quietly) in the back.

Review of “Nacht Fressen” by Peter Goodwin, goldrush festival fanzine.

“Unconventional music, similary to abstract painting, can be created not merely for evident beauty or relatable meaning but rather to evoke an emotion that lays deeper, beyond whatever is visible (or audible) on the surface. [...] this release is neither shallow nor pedantic. quite the contrary, nacht fressen is a truly insane case study on noise, ambience and field recordings. appreciating it as a true work of art is a no brainer.”

DANIEL VOIGT (Tape Experiments, Drone Soundscapes, Fieldrecordings - Frankfurt).

Augmented by effectpedals & mixer treatments Daniel Voigt blends a Musique Concrète approach (cutting up tapes and looping sounds with the help of several walkmen) with the cosmic aesthetics of Krautrock to make his music sound like love child of Delia Derbyshire and Klaus Schulze. His music was released on various international tape labels, such as Digitalis, Hobo Cult, Skell LLC & Cosmic Winnetou. Voigt is also the man behind the SicSic Tape label, a home port for a lot of outer limits travelers that are sharing the vision for deep zoned-out music & DIY culture.

Where did the time go?

Ok, sorry about the lack of recent updates - we've been up to stuff (honest) but have completely neglected this corner of the internet.

Coming Soon: retrospective entries about our third release, along with notes on the events we put on earlier in the year...

Preview: Stapleton & Rose, Legion of Swine, Orlando Ferguson

The Fenton, Leeds - 8/4/2014
The Woolpack, York - 9/4/2014

One week from today, Wonkystuff present the Yorkshire leg of the Stapleton & Rose UK tour (facebook event).

The headliners, Stapleton & Rose, combine Rose's (usually) extended saxophone techniques with Stapleton's Bonsai Sound Sculpture (BoSS). BoSS is a musical instrument/sculpture consisting of a re-purposed turntable, electronics, amplified metallic percussion and strings; invented in 2010 in collaboration with Neil Fawcett.

The wait is over

So, Wonkystuff has finally launched — we have two releases out on March 29th and our first events are at the beginning of April - 8th April in Leeds, and 9th April in York - see the 'Events' menu for more details.

More news soon.
