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.

Orlando Ferguson (Soundscapists)

… sound like something between the ever-looping whitenoise roar of post-apocalyptic radio static and the long-lost instrumental beds of some creeped-out 60s British black and white sci-fi series soundtrack. Like the Tardis taking off – IN YOUR BRAIN. Every track is like an hour long or whatever.
