Bamboo Session: DOUCEMENT, CAPITAINE

In the Bamboo Session we explored various techniques for fusing electronic and acoustic layers. The present director’s cut consists of all three takes we recorded. “Doucement, Capitaine” is an incantation to carefully deal with power.

Thoughts on “Bitches Brew”

This is a recovery track for Fatima. (If it is too exciting for you: listen to it later.)
(Sometimes things have to be in disorder to find into a new order. Provisorisch. Smartass.)
If you listen to the track on the computer speakers you probably will not hear the beat.

Get an idea of “Hobbies & Religions” – 2013 album

Voilà some almost finished tracks for the Lump200 album “Hobbbies & Religions”. It is expected to appear in early 2013. The release will be accompanied by the relaunch of the Lump200 Band which will break up the tracks and roll them out for the curious crowd.

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.

Voodoo sandwich

Are you angry with someone or something?
Make a voodoo sandwich:
Draw a sketch of the person who (or the situation that) offended you. Maybe there are other people involved of whom you think they made the person offend you. Make drawings of these, too (you can take photographies as well, of course). Then you place these pictures behind the sketch of the main offender in an order you find apropriate. Then you chooses some places on the top picture where you pin needles through the hole sandwich and fix it to a wall. You can place some other helpful objects around the sandwich if you feel like.

If you tend to suffer from bad conscience there is a better method, maybe.
