Montag 29.04.13 – 17 bis 20Uhr – Performance Workshop With Visiting Artist Irene Accardo

The Greenfields is pleased to welcome Italian performance artist Irene Accardo to the studio this week. Irene will be using her time in The Greenfields to do research for her next major performance piece, Gesetzeskraft. As part of her stay, she is inviting participants to take part in a special workshop with her at the studio on Monday April 29th from 5 to 8pm, which she describes with the following (German) text:
Wie bezeichnet man seine Zugehörigkeit zu einer Gruppe?
Wie drückt man Dissens aus?
Demokratie ist kein leichter Weg. Er erfordert Geduld, Verantwortung, Mut und Demut. Teil einer Gruppe zu sein bedeutet sich in Frage zu stellen und etwas von sich selbst preiszugeben. Eigene Ideale, eigene Vorstellungen und Vorhaben verwandeln und verändern uns kontinuierlich innerhalb eines demokratischen Prozesses.
Was macht eine Gruppe mit einem Individuum und wie verwandelt es sich?
In diesem Workshop wird ein Raum geschaffen um sich mit den verschiedenen Möglichkeiten des kritischen Nachdenkens über repräsentative Demokratie durch Spiel, Improvisation und Bewegung auseinanderzusetzen. Konkret wird mit einfachen Gruppen-Improvisationen gearbeitet, welche ihren Fokus auf das Bewusstsein gleichzeitig für sich selbst und andere verantwortlich zu sein, richten.
Dieser Workshop vermittelt einfache Strategien für alle, die sich mit dem Thema „Demokratie“  beschäftigen und möchte dieses Konzept konkret erfahrbar machen für: Künstler, Theaterpädagogen, Sozialarbeiter, Aktivisten und engagierte BürgerInnen.

Eure Geschichten machen diesen Workshop lebendig: schenkt mir eure Erfahrung und Assoziationen zum Thema Demokratie.

Greenfields Geräusche Teil 3 – Photos and Audio Recordings Online

Our Greenfields Geräusche event at Sublab three weeks ago was a pleasant success, with an audience of hackers, culture jammers and musicians turning out to join an evening long voyage into electronic sound created live on stage by three international artists. For those who couldn’t make it to the live event, here are some photos and sound recordings from the performances for your attention and pleasure.

Donnerstag 18.04.13 – 20 bis 23Uhr – Greenfields Offene Klassik und Ambient Jam Session

Vorsichtig wird der Frühling in Leipzig eingeläutet, wie Antonio Vivaldis Frühling lassen wir Leipzig langsam aufblühen ruhig harmonisch. Schön spriessen vorsichtig die ersten Blumen um uns herum und wie die Natur blühen wir langsam auf hören die ersten Vögel singen und freuen uns darauf uns von der Sonne langsam die ersten warmen Strahlen in unsere schläfrigen Körper zurückkehren zu lassen. Mit diesem Motto werden wir uns langsam unserem Lebenselixier der großen runden Scheibe am Himmel zuwenden die in uns neues Leben erweckt. Und wie das erste Grün langsam aus dem Boden aufkeimt, werden auch wir den Platz, den unsere hungrigen Seelen jetzt freigeben mit frischen neuen Trieben bewachsen lassen, damit wir im Sommer üppige Früchte ernten und dem zarten Anfang neue Keime liebevoll umsorgt ins Leben spriessen. Ruhige Klänge sollen sich diesesmal ausbreiten und die Jahreszeitendämmerung ankündigen. Sanfte Flächen aus Frequenzen werden den Raum langsam mit bunten Spektren füllen. Inspiriert von den sanften Tönen eines schwingenden elektronischen Orchester soll ein Raum entstehen in dem wir zusammenwachsen ohne Hast und Eile wie ein Geflecht aus neuer Wahl die Plattform erschaffen auf der sich die Welt neu und frisch drehen wird um uns um unsere neuen und wiederentdeckten Leben in und durch die Musik in uns allen. Lasst uns die Seite des Frühlings langsam anstreichen. Auf den grünen Feldern.

All good musicians, listeners, foot tappers and muses welcome.

Post-punk electro hip-hop crime fighting duo and former Greenfields Studio residents Psycho & Plastic will be embarking upon a mini-tour of Germany this week to promote their first EP release, which they recorded right here at the Greenfields. The Shibuya Beach Bar tour will take them through three cities in three days, starting in Berlin Prenzlauer Berg on Thursday, moving to the world famous Gängeviertel in Hamburg on Friday and finally arriving right here in Leipzig on Saturday to play at the Ski Laden project space in the East of the city. If that wasn’t already exciting enough, London based singer-songwriter Veronique Acoustique will also be in town on Saturday to play at the Musikhaus Kietz Record Store Day event in Leipzig Zentrum/Süd and will then join Psycho & Plastic live on stage later in the evening at the Ski Laden to serenade the audience with her unique mix of sultry psychedelia and vocal driven folktronica.
Accompanying Psycho & Plastic and Veronique at the Ski Laden will be Greenfields’ own audio-visual team, DJ YBA (You’ve Been Asassenated) and VJ Niloy, who will take over after midnight and whip up a party frenzy with a diverse selection of acid squeaks, breakbeats, bass bomps and psycho-active projections. A night not to be missed!

Greenfields Geräusche Teil 3 – Live Handmade Electronic Music @ Sublab – Dienstag 26.03.13

The Greenfields Studio and Sublab e.V. present Greenfields Geräusche Part III – a night of hacked sonic synthesis and experimental sound performances.

Bringing together artists from five countries, this third edition of our occasional Greenfields Geräusche event series focuses specifically on sound hacking: DIY synthesizers, circuit bending, homebrew electronic noise generators and creative signal routing/patching.
The event will feature short presentations from each of the audio artists about their practical, technical and artistic methods of noise generation followed by a series of live audio-visual performances in collaboration with video artists.

Featuring:
Arma (Lithuania)
Arma is an artist and curator from Vilnius, Lithuania, working in the field of weird / experimental music. He runs cassette label Agharta, organizes experimental music events and as a musician/performer has toured Russia, Germany, Poland and the Baltic states.
His live performances involve body interaction combined with vocals and Lo-Fi/Experimental/Drone electronica

Anti Set (France/Lithuania)
Anti set is a duo composed of Andrėja Šaltytė, a video performer from Lithuania, and Nicolas Lafay, a sound performer and composer from France.
After many performances based on extreme dance music with cinematic images of body movements, Nicolas began constructing his own instruments and sound effects which produce abstract and noisy sound.
Anti Set’s gig at Sublab will feature Nicolas’ newest home made modular synthesizer. Expect audio visual noise/idm/space music

WotWot (Germany), Danjing (China) & Asassenated (UK)
Detriment glitch from three countries. Current Greenfields Studio artist resident WotWot will perform sonic improvisations using his canon of home made synths and noise circuits. Accomapnying him will be media artist Danjing and musician/producer Asassenated.

Die Rückkehr des Königs: Synth-King WotWot Returns To The Greenfields For Second Residency

The Greenfields is very pleased to welcome sound artist, DIY synthesist and handmade electronic music expert WotWot back to the studio as our new artist in residence. Some of you may recall WotWot’s previous adventures at the studio last year during his first residency visit, but for those of you who have not yet experienced his homemade klangspielzeuge, you’re in for a treat of  bleeps, bass and white noise!

During his one week visit, WotWot will be keeping busy, with appearances at three events: he will be playing live at Sublab alongside Arma and Anti Set on Tuesday March 26th, he will be curating the book selection for the next Ambient Reading Room on Thursday March 28th and he will be part of an open DIY Sound Synthesis workshop here at the studio on Saturday March 30th.
In addition to this, WotWot will be using his portable sound-synthesis lab (which he has temporarily installed into the Greenfields Studio) to construct a new range audio patches and add the finishing touches to his brand new light-organ.
