Save the date: Superbooth 2017 (20.-22.04.17)

We are already super excited about the 2nd Superbooth music fair in Berlin.
Save the date: 20. – 22. April 2017. Part of the itsoundsfuture crew will be worshipping the San Clan in the desert of South Afrika by the time. But team Berlin will be there. Watch out for us!

SUPERBOOTH is the first European trade fair for electronic musical instruments. The second annual edition will be held from April 20th-22nd, 2017 at a new location, FEZ-Berlin.

 At its basis, SUPERBOOTH17 remains what made the last event so special in 2016: a colourful, lively, passionate organized trade fair, with workshops for beginners and advanced users, round tables and product presentations. In addition to the exhibition stands, there will once again be around 30 daily concerts and live performances with artistic representatives of all musical genres.

In the coming year, the focus will be on the encouragement of the competence and capabilities for the next generations. The FEZ-Berlin was built as the “Pionierpalast” during the GDR time and contains various specialized designed rooms, studios, lecture and concert halls which make the FEZ an ideal venue for this purpose. In addition to a flexible event space, there is an integrated modern technical equipment, allowing ease for planning.

As opposed to last years venue, with the well-organized design of the FEZ-building and land, the paths for visitors and exhibitors are shortened, as the exhibitor areas, studios, workshop rooms and food performance court are closer together and spread barrier-free over three floors. With the rooftop restaurant, several bars and larger outdoor area, there are endless opportunities for a communicative gathering. Of course, again we will provide our culinary mile, where you can enjoy a wide range of food and drinks while listening to experimental sounds from the Sea Side Stage.

Through workshops, lectures, performances and the fair, SUPERBOOTH17 has set out the goal of providing young people and inexperienced users with specialized expertise. For this purpose, the entire lower foyer and outdoor areas will be freely accessible and offer individual workrooms, educational stands and outside facilities for meeting, eating and experiencing a high level of live performances.

Further details on the three-day program can be seen on our website and will be regularly updated until the beginning of the fair. You can also keep up to date by subscribing to our newsletter at www.superbooth.com

The AMD Radeon 6970M issue on late 2011 27″ iMacs

After pushing our mainframe beyond what’s possible the AMD Radeon 6970M gfx card died, otherwise our first video interview with the lovely Jamaica Suk would be already online. Also the windows laptop lined up in failing mode, but that’s not unusual like it’s for the Mac. It turns out, that the AMD Radeon 6970M card which came with the late 2011 27″ iMac was faulty from the beginning. But lucky like we are, the replacement program lasting 4 years is already one year off.

Thanks to target disk mode via thunderbolt we had access to the hard drive: the video project files with more than 20GB were not backed up by our system before the crash. But first you need the thunderbolt cable. 35 bucks for 0,5m! Now you understand why Apple is filthy rich …

But we used the offtime to finish the second video for Novation, and we are again super thrilled to put it out into the video orbit. Coming really, really soon ( if our emergency system won’t die as well ).
Here is a sneak peek shot, and there is a rumour that you may find more footage in our social media profiles like Instagram or Twitter.

Upcoming: Heroines of Sound 2016 in Berlin

Curated by Bettina Wackernagel, Mo Loschelder and Sabine Sanio, the Heroines of Sound Festival, now in its third year, stages past and present heroines of electronic sound. Prior to the festival, the Heroines Editions will present electronic sounds and film screenings in a more intimate setting at Ausland (November 6th) and AcudMachtNeu (November 17th).

In concerts, installations, performances, videos and discussion events of various formats, early female electronic music is presented together with female artists who are transforming and performatively interpreting electronic sound today at the highest levels of pop and electronic/classical music. By opening up new perspectives, the Heroines of Sound make the quality and variety of female artists in the area of electronic music both audible and visible.

In 2016 the Heroines of Sound are dedicated to two main focal points. To this day, the music of Beatriz Ferreyra and Christine Groult, two composers associated with the Groupe de Recherches Musicales (GRM), still qualifies as an insider’s tip. Another focus lies on Cathy Berberian (1925–1983), the most significant pioneer of new vocal practice in the 20th century. Berberian’s art, which shows little concern about archaic aesthetic imperatives and shows all aspects of the human voice, was style- building for generations of composers and performers.

The concerts include vocal chamber music with electronics, works by John Cage and Luciano Berio written especially for Cathy Berberia, interpreted by Anna Clementi and by Ute Wassermann, and performances by Natalie Beridze and Sofia Härdig, as well as electronic performances by Annette Krebs, Audrey Chen and theremin virtuoso Dorit Chrysler. The Ensemble KNM presents a portrait concert with works by French-born composer Clara Maïda, who is now living in Berlin, as well as a world premiere of the young French composer and artist Loïse Bulot, who presents her graphic musical scores for the first time in Germany with her work InSomis. In addition, the program includes: multi-channel computer music by Elisabeth Schimana, Clara Maïda, Lucrecia Dalt’s conceptual electronic sound, and an experimental DJ set by JD Zazie.

Another highlight of the festival is the performative sound, light, video and space installation SHIROSHI by the Berlin-based artist Miako Klein. Inspired by Kenya Haras’ Reflections on Japanese Aesthetics (White, 2007/2014), this installation, created as a triology, offers an energetic field, oscillating between emptiness and abundance, and gives the viewer a space of perception in which concentration and imagination merge. Miako Klein developed SHIROSHI within her artist residency (2014/2015) at the Akademie Schloss Solitude. SHIROSHI will be presented for the first time to the public as part of the Heroines of Sound festival from 08.12 to 11.12.2016.

The programme will be rounded off by two discussion events on the key aspects of the festival. The first panel will use this opportunity to focus on the composers of the GRM from a historical perspective. The second panel aims to elucidate the constellation between the composer and the interpreter, based on the work of the vocalist Cathy Berberian. We will examine the creative relationship between composition and performance.

Slam announces new album – Maschine Cut Noise

The legendary Scottish techno duo Slam announces the forthcoming album, Machine Cut Noise.

Slam Press Picture - itsoundsfuture.com

Slam Press Picture – itsoundsfuture.com

Slam – Machine Cut Noise (Soma Records)

At their 6th full length in a 25+ years long career, Machine Cut Noise is due out via Soma Records, label they co-founded in 1991, after 2 years from their last one. It will be available both on vinyl and digital, out respectively on October 28th and December 9th.

With the double vinyl album, Machine Cut Noise, Stuart McMillan & Orde Meikle delve into the everyday workings of what makes us human; with life, so to speak, running at the very heart of album. Much of their time is spent on the road, therefore, many of the original ideas for the album were created in airports, hotels and where ever the two found themselves inspired around the world. This created a vibe that each track was born of the modern machine itself.
