listen: Jean-Michel Jarre

Resuming plenty of talks and discussions on the SuperBooth20 home edition we had the impression to have formed the wordwide “community” a little bit stronger with what we did. Exactly this was the job we was given in an online interview by Jean-Michel Jarre from France who could not join SuperBooth in time towards his good friend Christophe who sadly passed away just a few days earlier.

listen: Daniel Miller (mute/MZF)

The second “last word” was given to us by our friend Daniel Miller for the “Miller Zillmer Stiftung” supporting artists and activities worldwide as a foundation now, also supporting the “modular synthesizer ensemble” reminding us to please support the next generation of upcoming artists with good ideas especially now.

enjoy: Nguyễn + Transitory - Live From Queer Ear Mastering - Superbooth 2020 Performance

Nguyễn + Transitory is composed of Nguyễn Baly and Tara Transitory. Their work crosses the disciplines of sound, performance, and installation. Avoiding the use of samples, they work mainly with modular synthesizers and analog tape attempting to approach sound, synthesis, noise, rhythm, and performance from a less colonial lens – looking into how frequencies, the physicality of producing sounds and its incidental vibrations relate to cognitive memories, stored emotions and catharsis.  Their practice involves as well efforts to empirically learn more about various Southeast Asian + diaspora queer existences and lost histories.



Website: nguyentransitory.wordpress.com

enjoy: Carolina Eyck (Theremin & Voice)

In her solo show Theremin & Voice, Carolina breaks new ground using a surround sound system,
allowing her theremin to break free and fill the space. Magical loops and artfully arranged layers of
Carolina's voice are generated live on stage and fly through the room in sync with her dance-like
performance.

Singing without lyrics, Carolina's voice and theremin form the perfect symbiosis. Indistinguishable
at times, her voice appears out of reach and the theremin almost human. Balancing between
minimal and progressive electronic music, Carolina's melodic and partly fixed composition style
leaves plenty of space for her virtuoso improvisations.

Tense atmospherics, uncompromising levels of distortion and stark, astute beats constitute a distinctive sound that Simon Hayes has been honing for more than a decade under his Swarm Intelligence guise.

In this video Tommy compiled a collage of acoustic, ambient and ethno elements, that is dedicated to the people who cannot travel to Berlin to SUPERBOOTH20 or anywhere else to see their beloved ones due to the global Corona situation.

Moduls used: Novation Peak, Vermona DRM1, Yamaha CP4, Yamaha Motif Rack, Doepfer Dark Energy, Doepfer Dark Time, MFB Tanzbär, Moog DFAM, ER-M Multiclock, Ableton Push, E-Bass, E-Guitar, A-Guitar, drum samples (Ableton), ethno samples (Earth Moments).

enjoy: KLÄNG

Kläng brings to life an arrangement of contemporary musical ideas that unite mindful and provocative sounds and remain well balanced in inverted poise.  

Their improvisation style benefits from the artists’ widely different musical backgrounds. Veith Michel aka. Cotzhausen (modular synth / sample processing)  and Glenn Knopf (vibes / percussion) create a peaceful and meditative environment that invites the audience to dive deep, to escape the overwhelming and fast paced information flows of modern society, thus leaving distressing routines behind and making space for unexpected feelings and emotions to emerge.  

Acoustic landscapes, strange creatures, as well as deep forests filled with living organisms contemplate the volatile lightness and precision of classical music. The duo invites you to set sail on a musical journey through the mist with your eyes closed.
