29.4. catalog release by Einstellungsraum

Catalogue release of Einstellungsraum, including my exhibition from November 2009:
Am 29.04.2010 ab 19h ist der EINSTELLUNGSRAUM e.V., www.einstellungsraum.de,  in der Jupibar des Gaengeviertel.  Anlass ist das Releasen unseres jüngsten Kataloges, dem nämlich aus 2009. Aus unseren Restfördermitteln und viel Eigenarbeit dokumentiert er alle Ausstellungen, Aktionen und dazugehörige Textauszüge zum Jahresthema 2009 "shared space".  Sharde space ist ein holländisches Verkehrskonzept und bedeute "gemeinschaftlich genutzter Raum". Die Jupibar des Gaengeviertel an der Ecke Speckstraße und Caffamacherreihe nutzen wir nun gemeinsam mit den beteiligten KünstlerInnen und Gästen, um diese Broschüre, die 2010 im Hyperzineverlag erschienen ist und vom EINSTELLUNGSRAUM e.V. herausgegeben wird, öffentlich zu machen. Es gibt eine kleine Leseaktion mit Brigitte Engel-Hiddemann und das, was die Jupibar zu bieten hat.  Wir freuen uns auf interessierte Gäste. Die benachbarte Ausstellung in der Speckstraße von Silke Peters und Kimberly Horton "Unter diesen Umständen" wird zeitgleich geöffnet sein.

mastering an Akustikkoppler album

Mastering an album of my band Akustikkoppler which I present tomorrow to a Hamburg label. Its very dark ambient, hopefully it gets a release.

A synthpop vinyl single by this project is due since a year, but the label we gave the master took so long to get their act together. But now its about to be released but I believe it when I hold it in my hands.

Meanwhile tracks can be listend at Soundcloud, on our Myspace page together with our first music video and we have a Facebook page too.

which label? and what kind of music is this?

Passed this afternoon with a friend listening to the latest yet unreleased Notstandskomitee album to determine what kind of music it is and which label might be interested. It would be the 5. album release. You can get a glimpse at Soundcloud. Its difficult to judge on your own. Jim 'Foetus' Thirlwell once said "bleed now, sell later" and this is what I do, creating the music and later sort out the tracks and compile them to a album.
