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.

Announcement: Clash Mob #1 in Berlin Tempelhof


We are going to play an improvised mass music and march along the runway of the historic airport Berlin Tempelhof. Join us, bring a portable instrument, just play on one single tone. Recording devices are welcome.

Start: close to the entrance Oderstrasse at 8:30 p.m. (in order to enjoy warmth and light of the sunset). MAY 15, 2012
We play for the sun and for the birds. If you want to record yourself while playing please do it and put the file on a public server. It would be lovely to hear loads of mixes and to see various clips of this very moment after the mob.
Please find details, info on coordination and peers on the unavoidable Lump200 facebook site.

I think that we will achieve the most interesting result (music!) if everyone reduces from what he or she really can. That is why I suggest that every musician (professionals and amateurs are equally welcome!) just plays on one tone and tries to find the precise moments in the texture to place it.

Come as you are, bring your friends and please respect the rules of the park.
The plan is that we start in time, play for some 20 and something minutes and then leave the park within the opening ours (till 9:30 p.m.).

Wider alle Wahrscheinlichkeit wurde ich ungefähr zu dieser Zeit gezeugt. It had not been likely at all that I was gonna happen.
Ich habe keine Theorie dazu, aber dass ich zu Beginn meines Lebens so massiv der Wahrscheinlichkeit getrotzt habe, nehme ich zum Anlass, das Unwahrscheinliche auch weiterhin in Betracht zu ziehen.
