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.
N°3 goes back to the series’ origin: vocal, language and noise. Advanced vocal techniques, futuristic poetry en noise performances in language, music and matter intertwine freely.
Leif Ellgren is one half of the absurd-grotesque harsh noise & performance duo The Sons of God — remember their insane performance at the KRAAK festival, with key roles for two ominous men, a wall of sound and a table. Solo he explores the dark and demented corners of the soul, by redefining the relations between social convention, meaning and the everyday.
Daniel Löwenbrück is apart from his alter ega Raionbashi also the brain of the Tochnit-Aleph label. Noiser, performer, member of Schimpfluch-Gruppe, ... in short The Method Man of Aktionism.
In Bergen, a city where it reportedly always rains, pushed the young artist Stine Janvin Motland the limits of the human voice. As true vocal poet she produces an intens array of sounds, from which it’s hard to believe a human voice is capable of producing it.
She released two records in 2014, Oh Wow and In Labour, which are in heavy rotation at the KRAAK office since then.
Valeri Scherstjanoi is a Laut poet, a visual artist and one of the strongholders in the field of Futurist and Dada poetry. As a child he grew up in Kazakhstan, in what was once the Soviet Union. As an expert in the field of Futurism and Dada, he uses language as the raw conduit of sound and music. On his most recent tape, released by No Basement is Deep Enough, he displays excellent Lautdichtung, a form of abstract poetry injected with a deep emotional power.
