Later ee play our set, and for the first time since years: We DJ! People dancing until the club closes. Whow, we had a good time!

sat. 2nd oct 2010 Music Hack Day






Fotos: Alexandra Varela

Owen of the fantastic band Barcelona Bakalao is one of the organizers of the Music Hack Day Barcelona, and he invited us to play on that event. What a pity that we did not have time to participate in some of the workshops (especially the one about the rgb-arduinome, that's something we want to have!!!). But anyway, saturday night we rocked the campus. We played a stunning cover of Still loving you by the Scorpions, offered some meditation advice for the world and made a lot of noise. Uyuyuy.

26 of June 2010: Girasolfest!

Wonderful small festival out in the countryside, we played together with a whole set of friends: N'Sista, Arbo, Equipo, Ferando Lagreca, Frozen Radio, David Apfel - basically all the people that play a lot at the NIU. Tremendous full moon, a horse dancing to our horse song, swimming pool, a theremin-love-machine. Perfect!!!!! Hope to be there next year again!!!!
The video shows a moment of the afternoon right before the concerts started. Everyone was supposed to plant some sunflowers and the string duo played some Thelemann and Bach to chill in.

02.05.2010 Das verlorene Paradies


It must be like a year ago, or even more, that Hangar's Ignacio Somovila asked us to play on an event that he is planning. It would be a picnic in the new park of Poble Nou (pictured above). The picinic-event is part of an exposition called "Paradís perdut" that opened this week in the civic centre Can Felipa. Well tomorrow, sunday 2nd of may we will play 4 hours of ambien music, cumbiatronics, laptopdelica and friendly noise in the park. If it doesn't rain (and it doesn't look too good, ay).

29.05.2010 SitZ en el CCB

During the last months we have been working on the score for another dance-piece by Angela Lamprianidou. It's called "SitZ" and the three dancers are dancing in a seated position most of the time. Lots of work for us, as the whole piece is like 500 hours long. We wrote several dozens of great poptunes, but the choreographer didn't like them and asked for abstract minimal electroacoustic noise. No problem for us, we filled several harddisks with screeches, blobs, mangle-dangled-opera and other obscenities. Tonight the whole thing will have a first stage test in the centro Civico de Barceloneta, and on the 9h of may it will get presented in the Mercat de les Flors (the biggest modern-dance-venue in Barcelona).
Above a video-excerpt from the rehearsals.

El futbol es mejor que la guerra



Institut FATIMA propone:


Barca lo gana todo. ¿Por qué entonces no mandamos el equipo azulgrana a Afghanistan para conquistar los Talibanes?
El fútbol es mejor que la guerra. En vez de hacer canciones protesta vamos a remezclar el próximo partido Barca contra Madrid.

Y vosotros: En vez de mirar el partido en la tele en casa os invitamos a este evento que cruza los dos logros máximos de nuestra querida Barcelona: El fútbol y la videodanza.

Artistas:

Institut FATIMA (música), el Videoartista Pixel y el comentarista DJ Scooby Dub (una mitad del fantástico DubDuo DubÜTen)

Sabado 10 de Abril, a partir de las 22 hs, NIU.

Entrada libre.
