Ekkohaus – An Interview

Bittles‘ Magazine | Interview

You know that sense of nervous anticipation you get as you put a new album on and you don’t know what to expect? That shiver of suspense you experience as you put the CD in the stereo, place the record on the turntable, or press play on the file is a pretty beautiful thing indeed. Yet nine times out of ten you end up disappointed by what you hear. Be it landfill indie, or generic tech-house nonsense with the personality of a paving slab, the discovery of new music can be a fraught and terrifying adventure that makes even the most ardent of music lovers ponder the point of it all.

The Time Was Right: An Interview With Tone of Arc.

Bittles‘ Magazine | Interview

To say that Tone of Arc have created one of the funkiest records of 2013 is something of an understatement. Said album The Time Was Right contains 11 tracks of fantastically freaky sounds that would make LCD Soundsystem lie down and give up the ghost (oh wait, they already have). Trust me when I tell you that this is music readymade for the shuffling of shoulders, the nodding of heads, the movement of feet, and the eruption of huge face-dominating grins. By JOHN BITTLES

(Mit-)Geteilte Information

Theater | Forum Freies Theater Düsseldorf: »InFormAtion«

Atmosphäre: Kühlhaus. Ein diffuses Hintergrundrauschen. Die medialen Kanäle scheinen zu knacken: Gibt es etwa eine technische Störung, Herr Tappert (Ton: Ansgar Tappert)? Ein steriler Vorhang aus weißen Lamellen teilt die Bühne und auch das Publikum in zwei (Bühne: Dirk Dietrich Hennig). Neben dem zunächst als akustischem »Störfaktor« wahrgenommenen Grundrauschen macht sich Informationsneid breit. Von VERENA MEIS

Waking Up with Mr.C.

Bittles‘ Magazine | Interview

You know how every once in a while an album will come along that completely defies all your expectations and quite simply blows you away? You press play, sit down, and give the stereo that certain look which signifies that you are going to be very hard to impress. Within minutes though you’ve climbed up onto the table shaking your skinny little ass while waving your hands in the air with something approaching unbridled joy. By JOHN BITTLES

The Black Dog Runs at Night!

Bittles‘ Magazine | Interview

The Black Dog are one of those rare bands that appear to be doing what they do for a reason, a need, or a compulsion even. While more and more people in the music industry seem to be all about the fame, or the money, it is truly refreshing to meet a band who aren‘t here to play the media game. Their regular forays into the world of music are constantly met with eager anticipation by those intelligent people who treasure techno that is created with depth and lots of soul. By JOHN BITTLES

Tips For the Top: Daniel Avery

Bittles‘ Magazine | Daniel Avery

Daniel Avery is a producer who makes the type of house music that makes me remember why I fell in love with house music in the first place. Bubbling bass, crashing beats, and edgy synths are all thrown into the mix to create something which positively snarls at the body urging it to move to the beat. This is music made for losing yourself. For closing your eyes, hands in the air, dancing even though you’re exhausted, and thinking to yourself ›thank fuck I am here rather than anywhere else‹.

Mute Records artist Cold Specks first popped her head into our world in May of last year with the release of debut album I Predict a Graceful Expulsion. An enchanting appearance on Jools Holland also went some way towards announcing the presence of this peculiar talent to the world.

Differenzierte Erinnerung

Film | DVD: Klassik und Kalter Krieg – Musiker in der DDR

Je weiter sich die Realität der DDR in die Vergangenheit entfernt, desto grobschlächtiger werden die Klischees, die sich mit ihr verbinden – sofern, bei jungen Leuten, überhaupt noch Vorstellungen von dem zweiten deutschen Staat vorhanden sind. Für viele ist er so exotisch wie Atlantis oder Karthago. Von THOMAS ROTHSCHILD  

Le Grand Macabre
Posted on in Platte

Apokalypse surreal

Musik | Auf DVD: Ligeti: Le Grand Macabre

Wir werden uns an der Diskussion nicht beteiligen, ob György Ligeti der bedeutendste Komponist nach 1945 ist oder nur der zweit- oder vielleicht gar nur der drittbedeutendste. Soviel aber kann man mit Gewissheit behaupten: Seine Oper Le Grand Macabre, die 1978 uraufgeführt und 1996 umgearbeitet wurde, steht wie ein Monolith in der Geschichte des neueren Musiktheaters. Von THOMAS ROTHSCHILD
