First edition in the series Braublff (materie und laut) on contemporary vocal poetry. Icw De Player & Les Ateliers Claus. Tickets.

BRAUBLFF (materie und Laut)  is series of concerts in cooperation with De Player (Rotterdam). Where and how transforms language into music? A possible answer: the point where language loses its meaning and becomes pure matter – by repetition, mutation and deconstruction, realised by technology, cut-ups and tape-manipulation.

The idea for this series of concerts started out of a shared obsession for the work of vocal poets as Henri Chopin, Byron Gysin, Lars-Gunnar Bodin and the catalogue of Revue OU. In three editions it proposes a State of the Art on the relation language-matter-music, by programming contemporary vocal poets and text-sound composers together with the revolutionary work of the avant-garde since the 50ties.

The first edition is a tribute to Sten Hanson, who passed away last year. On this evening De Player will present ‘my Last Work’, a 10” vinyl + cd, with unreleased music, visual work and two essays about the composer and former leader of the Swedish Fylkingen group.

De player invited Magnus Haglund (se) to write for this release an essay about Hanson. He drew a picture of the person and the artist, prolific in the international avant-garde scene since the 60ties. Haglund is an art critic and performer. He published the book ‘The Naked City, Gotheburg’ and writings about Åke Hodell. On this edition he performs a lecture-performance inspired by Hanson.

Tomomi Adachi (jp) is performer, composer, vocal poet, installation artist and occasional theatre director. He studied philosophy and aesthetics at the Waseda University (Tokyo). As a performer he improvises by means of vocals, live electronics and self-made instruments. Quintessential are his compositions for the punk choir Adachi Tomomi Royal Chorus. He is also renowned for his interpretations of legendary works by John Cage, Cornelius Cardew, Christian Wolff, Tom Johnson, Dieter Schnebel, Takahashi Yuji en Yuasa Joji. In real Beavis and Butthead style, he brought to stage for the first time in Japan works by Cage and Kurt Schwitters.

Alessandro Bosetti (it) is a composer, performer and sound artist. He digs deep into the musicality of spoken language and the sound characteristics of language based communication. He (mis)uses miscommunication, translation and interview techniques for his compositions, blurring the lines between electro acoustics, aural writing and performance. Bosetti is one of the most innovating radio makers, specialised in hybrid text-sound compositions. His CV is impressive: concerts a.o. on the GRM/presences electroniques Festival (Paris), Roulette (NY), Café Oto (London), and many awards: Phonurgia Nova Price 2012, de IDAF Prize 2013, ...
