Bur­ning Bar­rels. War­ming glogg. Tin­ke­ring sounds. The artist troop of qujOchÖ pres­ents in the con­text of the ### series a backyard ghet­to par­ty on Novem­ber 23rd. Three inter­na­tio­nal live acts will per­form live in the inner yard of the quitch. Xyra­mat from Ger­ma­ny, Minit from Aus­tra­lia and Mr. Hub­ba & El Mono Inven­tor from Spain will fire up the audi­ence.

Xyra­mat, a one-woman-show, loves and lives music for a very long time. She star­ted play­ing in bands dedi­ca­ted to New Wave and Expe­ri­men­tal Music, for instan­ce Devant­gar­de, a rather unknown Indus­tri­al Band. At the begin­ning of the 1990s she swit­ched to expe­ri­men­tal elec­tro­nic music and star­ted to expe­ri­ment with the con­struc­tion of sounds, which show her own elec­tro­ni­cal hand wri­ting. It’s rather dif­fi­cult to descri­be: ang­led, squa­re-edged, true (to hear on the vinyl “Kon­struk­tio­nen” and the CDs “Sie”, “Yaci­kaa”, “Elec­tro­ni­cal­ly” and “Elec­tro­ni­ca 2004”).

MINIT is Jas­mi­ne Guf­fond and Tor­ben Til­ly, both cur­r­ent­ly based in Ber­lin. Using digi­tal, sam­pling and mixing tech­no­lo­gies Guf­fond and Til­ly mani­pu­la­te recor­ded and ‘found’ sound to crea­te a kind of spec­tral dro­ne music that sits magi­cal­ly in bet­ween the abs­tract and the con­cre­te. Drawing upon influ­en­ces from expe­ri­men­tal elec­tro­nic, rock and avant-gar­de music, MINIT crea­te a sound that holds gre­at emo­ti­ve power and musi­ca­li­ty while still main­tai­ning a sen­si­ti­ve ‘micro­scopic’ explo­ra­ti­on of elec­tro-acoustic phe­no­me­na. From fra­gi­le har­mo­nic and melo­dic into­na­ti­ons to towe­ring, ecsta­tic dro­nes and elec­tri­cal dis­tur­ban­ces, MINIT are drawing you into a hyp­no­tic, psy­che­de­lic sound-world.”

Mr. Hub­ba & El Mono Inven­tor are a Bar­ce­lo­na-based duo, who com­bi­ne casio-pop, expe­ri­men­tal, and elec­tro­nic lo-fi music. Sin­ce their for­ma­ti­on on Sep­tem­ber 2004, they have alrea­dy play­ed at the Nort­hern Cali­for­nia Noi­se­fest, tou­red Euro­pe (play­ing at the Tate Bri­tain in Lon­don, as well as in Dub­lin and Ber­lin). They have also tou­red Japan with Yoshio Machi­da and play­ed in Spa­nish fes­ti­vals like Sonar 2005, Lem and Perife­ri­as. In their hyp­no­tic live sets they use a gui­tar, casio­to­nes, a syn­the­si­zer and ana­log drum machi­nes, as well as xylo­pho­nes, har­mo­ni­um, …”
