On the newly released vinyl LP "Verfassung" (German for "state" or "constitution") 14 electronic tracks by 14 musicians and projects can be heard. The music includes all styles of experimental electronic music: minimal to noise, musique concrète, improv, cut-ups and collages.
The record not only shows the current state of the experimental music scene in Hamburg, despite the different individual approaches and styles it creates a musical flow, offering a diverse and exciting listening experience.
All musicians on the record are members of the "Hoerbar" (German for "audible" and "listening bar"). For over 10 years it has been an important meeting point for producers and consumers of experimental music in Hamburg, Germany. Once a week a lively exchange between composers, musicians, labels and collectors takes place. Once a month local and international musicians are invited to the "Unüberhörbar" concert (German for "unignorable"), among the guests have been Jim O’Rourke, Hafler Trio, Keith Rowe, People Like Us and many others.
"the audible VERFASSUNG of our loosely organized group of producers [called HOERBAR] is being reflected by this audio document, which is representative but cannot be complete.some children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren of those courageous explorers of electroacoustic music continued walking on analogue and digital paths, avoiding the academic castles of compulsion and the sweat-moistened dancepalaces, being driven by furious excitement to add something personal to the pool of established aesthetic strategies. knowing that the wheel cannot be reinvented is not a cause for resignation or for becoming Epigones, but made us develope our ambitions to learn from historic achievements so that we can walk upon new roads and even stray with our heads up. so, the electroacoustic VERFASSUNG [constitution / condition / circumstance / state of mind] compiled by hoerbar hamburg manifests the whole spectrum between the righteous ponderer‘s efforts and the unconcerned homo ludens‘ arabesques. we will go on."

Considering that Man breeds with the shamelessness of a scourge, as I quote E.M. Cioran in my piece, wouldn’t it be better to lessen music? Notabene: not lesser music, but each piece of music lesser.

the anticultural record can bear a severe cultural burden as well, but it will actively make use of that: oblivion instead of remembrance, under development instead of progress, nomadicism instead of domesticism, a map instead of a xerox.

"i vote against the verfassung, not because it contains something that doesn’t please me, or because it doesn’t contain something that please me, but because it is a "Verfassung" [constitution circumstances state of mind]" Pierre Joseph Proudhon (1809-1865)

"he grasped at my arm and dragged me into the interior of his store which was full of fruit and vegetables. we passed through a door in the backside wall and entered a room. in this room there was a bed, a woman lying down there without motion. assumingly, she was dead. it appeared to me that she had been lying there for a long time, for the bed was rampantly overgrown by vegetables." - Leonora Carrington

"Vom Kamel gefallen" / Live bei audiounit2, Januar 2005
Vom Kamel gefallen. Das hat man davon. Und wie kommt man wieder rauf? Das Kamel ist ganz schön hoch.
"Vom Kamel gefallen" is German for "fallen from a camel". The piece is part of the noise bass solo program in which I play electric bass, using a distortion-pedal to make noise and a delay-pedal to make loops. The composition keeps shifting interruptedly between a deep, quiet cluster layered with behind-the-nut picking and a loud, amorphous outburst of sixteenth notes.
The recording is an unedited take from the audiounit2 concert in January 2005.
Thanks to incite/ for organizing and recording the concert.
