Fotos & Video from our LEM concert

Our concert at the closing night of the LEM-festival was great. Lots of people dancing in the audience (and on stage). As we had only about 45 minutes to play we compressed all the stuff that went well during the last concerts into a non-stop-show. Intense, intense. After the show we danced a lot to DJ Gonzo's set. Must have been a couple of years ago that I have been dancing to Can's "Mother Sky", my god, what a great track for freaking out. I also was impressed by the concerto of Cargo, two guitars, lots of pedals and little samplers, doing a droney, spaced out improvisation set.
Here are some fotos, kindly submitted by fotographer Diego Bustamante Giraldo.

Hangar concert footage

this was a nice concert, we played for the farewell of our friend Jovan, who went away to germany as so many oter friends, during this time of depression, repression, crisis and mutlosigkeit. Anywaty, it was so hot inside the building that most people were standing outside, in front of the door. so we decided to play in the door. so people don't have to come inside for the concert. and we had a sofa. and we had good times. see it yourself.

20.07.2011 Sant Feliu de Guixols

Wonderful concert in an abandoned hospital in the centre of Sant Feliu de Guixols. The decoration they had come up with was all the x-mas-decoration from town stuffed together!! Best sound since a long time, the sound guy had some custom made subwoofers that made yummy bass (that's the company: . Hooray. The white whine was excellent, thank you, Luz, for bringing me another bottle to the stage! The party afterwards was wild. Breakfast was yummy again (tostadas with tahima and honey). Then we got invited for an exclusive visit of an exhibition of sound installations by Luthiers Drapaires. Excellent stuff, we especially love the Maquina de Amor that has been at several festivals where we played lately.

Then to finish our visit we had a nice swim at this beach, just around the corner. And excellent lunch on a parking lot in the harbour. Thanks  a million to Stefan and Barbora for driving us

From our friend Helena Acosta we received this little video from our performance on last year's "Paradis Perdut"-picnic. This makes me
think that we really should play another picnic in some park here in Barcelona. Anyone up to organize such event with us?

Generative music with Max4Live

Here is a little set for Ableton Live that uses the new max4live devices to generate a monotonous but everchanging ambient-tune. It uses only one sample from a kickdrum to make sounds of clicks, bass, pads and a theremin. You need the latest version of ableton live and max4live to open it.

Paul Rose - "Works for Theatre" out now on bandcamp

A selection of music and score done for theatre and dance, all composed and produced by Institut FATIMA's Paul Rose is available now on our bandcamp-site. (or listen to it via the player below).

Barcelona based musician Paul Rose presents a selection of tracks from works he did for theatre plays, choreographies and installations. In 2007 he collaborated in the first of an ongoing series of plays with set-designer Maria Pons and director Beatriz Liebe. "Agnus Lupus" was a play, but also an instalation that the audience was invited to visit after seeing the performance (Instituto del teatro, Barcelona, 2007). For "Mon Amour" was a play based on M. Dumas' "Hiroshima Mon Amour". The stage set was based on 5 isles that during the days after the performance worked as automated installations, with music, sound, light and robotics involved (Strobe-festival, Amposta, Spain, 2008). The third play/installation that Paul worked on was called "Palabres Alaudes" - A multichannel audio-theatre-installation that was on display at Convent de San Agusti, Barcelona, in december 2009.

With choreographer Angela Lamprianidou he worked on various dance- and performance-pieces. Here we can hear excerpts from "Shortcuts" (2008), "Sit" (2010) and "Shortcuts Collagen" (2011). The plays have been performed at various theaters in Spain and Germany.
