Friday 11th of August - Kastanienallee 77

It has been one of my dreams to convince Luciano Pavarotti to sing the songs of the late Sex Pistols. The name of the album should be Pavarotti sings Rotten. I never had a chance to meet the maestro in person. For the first time in my life I will be able to speak to someone who can help me. Collin Oldham has played cello for one of Luciano's buddy's. Should be a piece of cake to have Pavarotti on our stage for a christmas recital.

So far our guests stand in a row of friends. And I am very pleased to have been introduced to
Anne Wellmer by Justin Bennett, who performed chez nous a month ago. Anne has made life easy for me. She wanted to have a pleasant evening and invited her friends. From their various biography's one can imagine that the whole evening will be one of imagination.

Here is the information as provided by themselves:

Anne Wellmer is a sound artist, born to be angry in Germany in 1966, raised to be wild in America 1970-1973 and educated to be noisy in the Netherlands 1992-1997. Among her work are performances and installations, music theater pieces and choreographies. She performs as an improvising musician, as a composer and as a singer on various electronic instruments, such as the VCS3 EMS Synthi, the ARP 2600, the STEIM crackle box and laptops.

Collin Oldham's musical life includes 25 years of experience as a performing cellist, two university degrees in cello performance, and appearances with the (US) National Symphony Orchestra, and Washington (DC)Opera with the likes of Valery Geirgiev and Placido Domingo. He has given solo and chamber music recitals in Chicago, Los Angeles, Moscow, Louisville and Berlin. He was a founding member of Dr. Nick, a Moscow blues band and has toured and recorded with Richmond Fontaine. In 2005-2006 he studied at Stanford's center for computer research in music and acoustics, where he developed some novel contollers for perfoming music with computers.

Collin designs instruments that bring computer music and digital synthesis under the influence of the physical world. They speak to his laptop via a microcontroller.


Sebastian Meissner is one of our neighbours. In his latest work he deals with the concept of 'Heimat'. You can find him somewhere in the bush of ghosts: _____________________________________________________________

And when all seems over and done,
Das Naturhistorische Museum der Klänge will bring a candlelightconcert to you in the bar. Das Naturhistorische Museum der Klänge scarcely make public appearances. So far they have performed in Guru's Palace in Capo Vaticano, at the Leprochaun Convention in Burg Güsing and der Kuhstall in Innsbruck.
Toilet Music of their last album Ciao Jazzclub has been aired by radiostations around the world. Rumor has it that the director of the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao never visits the bathroom without toilet music. But please, don't tell anyone.
