Lining it up will be ...


Although Arran Handully is the most popular lifeloop actress on the planet Capitol she is sick of acting and wants to retire. Her manager tells her of an idea that for one last lifeloop that will make her rich enough to quit. She suggests that Arran do a nonstop loop from the time she wakes up from suspended animation to the time she goes back to sleep using the fictional drug Somec twenty-one days later. Arran reluctantly agrees to this because she really wants to quit. On the last day of filming a famous lifeloop actor named Hamilton Ferlock comes to her apartment. Shortly after arriving he breaks character, tells her that he loves her and asks her to marry him. She assumes that he is just doing this to play a trick on her and rejects him very coldly before going to the Sleeproom to be put under Somec. When she wakes up she finds out that Hamilton committed suicide a week after she went to sleep. She also discovers that she really cared for him.

Return to Sender (LiFeLooP)
Three or four radio receivers and four mini-FM transmitters, each transmitting on a different frequency what it is being fed or what it picks up from the near field chaos surrounding it. The transmission between the devices is affected by what frequency the receivers are tuned to, the immediate electro-magnetic field, human presence and furniture. The signal is not a sound loop travelling in the area of intervention, but a spontaneous event, resulting from collective action in perpetual movement.


Kim Johannesen and Fredrik Kirkevold have played together in different constellations for several years, and have, after a lot of practising and searching, found a musical world of their own with a high level of communication. Musically, the duo is in constant change. The duo is a breathing space for both musicians, where they can play with their highest personal expressions, and develop new expressions through improvisation. The music is very dynamic and varies from total silence to total noise.

REVOLVER! was in 2008 chosen out of 51 Norwegian bands to participate in JazzIntro, Young Norwegian Jazztalents of the year, where they made it to the finals at Molde Int. Jazzfestival as the only band playing totally improvised music. Furthermore the duo has played at MaiJazz in Stavanger and toured Scandinavia and England, where they amongst others played at the well known jazz- and improv-venue The Vortex in London. They have also collaborated with the great Norwegian freejazz saxophonist Frode Gjerstad.

OBLIQ richtet die Aufmerksamkeit auf feine Nuancen, scheinbar nebensächlichen Details, die unter mikroskopischer Betrachtung lebendig werden.

Pierre Borel wurde 1987 in Paris geboren. Er beginnt mit 7 Jahren Saxophon zu spielen und studiert Klassik und Jazz im CNR de Paris und dann im CNSM de Paris (conservatoire national superieur de musique), wo er Unterricht in Arrangement, Komposition und Improvisation bekommt. 2006 zieht er nach Berlin, studiert im J.I.B und interressiert sich immer mehr für improvisierte Musik. Er spielt im Trio "Luc Tonnerre", im Sextett vom Bassisten Andreas Waelti "Transit room" und gründete sein eigenes Septett, das "Pierre Borel Septett".

Clayton Thomas is a double bassist and grass roots organiser working in the broad spectrum of improvised and experimental music. He is Australian, but lives in Berlin. I'm trying to work out a physical activity equally engaged in electronic and acoustic music aesthetics, while maintaining the kind of transitional and transformative energy of the music that changed my life. I draw inspiration from creative music of all eras, happily learning from and engaging with improvisers, sound artists, composers and thinkers alive and kicking in the 21st century. I have been inspired and pushed by many great musicians, but would especially thank my first teachers Wilber Morris and Peter Kowald, and Jon Rose, Jim Denley, Andrew Meisel, Cooper-Moore, Tony Buck and Hollis Taylor for doing some real work on the topic.

Hannes Lingens (*1980 in Hamburg) studierte Schlagzeug bei Michael Griener und Günter "Baby" Sommer. Ausserdem spielt Hannes Lingens chromatisches Knopfakkordeon und veröffentlichte 2004 die Soloakkordeon CD „Hands up“ mit ausschliesslich eigenen Kompositionen. Er bewegt sich mit beiden Instrumenten im Spannungsfeld zwischen neuem Jazz und improvisierter Musik. Dieses Interesse führte ihn nach Berlin, wo er seit Sommer 2006 lebt. Er spielt u.a. mit den Bands Schulbus, Cassis, Obliq und arbeitete mit Künstlern wie Christof Kurzmann, Matthias Schubert und Ken Vandermark zusammen.

Finishing you all off will be JD Random with a pocket full of posies for the inner ears residing in the background.
