A road trip to the black roots of American culture. I had the pleasure to see this highly ispiring piece of cinema by Oliver Hardt in my very neighbourhood. Thanks for this warm work.

CLASH MOB # 2 – Invitation

CLASH MOB # 2 – official invitation from rene desalmand on Vimeo.

Join the 2nd mass music mob @ Flughafen Tempelhof, Berlin. We start close to Eingang Oderstrasse, be there some minutes before 8 p.m, August 22. We are going to march and play along the northern runway, it will take about 30 minutes.
This time we won’t follow a straight beat. Let us aim at building a polyrhythmic cluster with changing beats. Play iles of short tones, listen to the birds, sing for the sun, move.

If you feel like spreading the news, telling your friends etc. please use the unavoidable Lump200 facebook page. If you feel like confirming your attendance please do it here.

Wet Mob #1 is done

We clashed with Jonny Cash (or who is in charge of the weather at present?). There was a hard rain when the folks were supposed to get to the point to be…

Thanks a lot to every single person who ignored or enjoyed the shower and joined us!

I painted the mob from behind.

Naa.

This is a stiggstill. Original, 2012.

Marching along the runway of Tempelhof

I am planning a music mob. As many musicians, dancers etc. as possible are going to play and walk along the runway of Tempelhof, the central ex-airport of Berlin. One way, about 20 minutes. Last week the core of the Lump200 Band tested the place. If you are interested in this experiment please come back to this very site. We launched the unavoidable Lump200 facebook site in order to gather the crowd. Please read on soon.

X-mess

I need some warmth. I climb into the oven. Preferably upside down.

 

And I listen to music I usually don’t: Stevie Wonder („Hotter than July“ and „Conversation Peace“) and The Beatles („Sergeant Pepper“) (inner obligation) and Elvis (outer obligation).

En Bretagne

I am in the very west of France. I record and manipulate original tone, the sea and the wind are loud. I play the saxophone on the cliffs, I play for the sea.
And I make an extended interview with an expert for stranded goods. All in all I collect ingredients for a radio piece that I am going to produce next year.

Where am I?
