Gepard14
The Flarf Disco Experience - 20:00
Schützenstrasse 14
Liebefeld 3097
Switzerland
Price: Kollekt

The Flarf Disco Experience finally brings together the sonic and textual melding of Lo-fi cut-up guitar sounds with textual collage utterances in one colorful and sensational disco-beat happening. Mexican-masks meets mouth-montage with some hip wrestling word dancing in between. Special guest The Artist Formerly Known as Hartmut Abendschein.

.................................................. 

The Flarf Disco Experience bringt endlich zusammen, was zusammen gehört:
Lo-fi-Gitarrensound, farbenprächtige Wrestlermasken und aus Musiksamplertiteln montierte und collagierte Textgebilde in angemessenem Vortrag. DIY-Bricolagen aufs Ohr in Wort und Ton.
Showtime: 45-60 Minuten.

Der Singer-Songwriter Bobby Vacant (USA/CH) und die Bassistin The Worn (Brigitte Meier, CH) spielen Songs aus der rauhen amerikanischen Landschaft, den Wüsten voll Spuren von Geistern, aus der Nacht, die durch leuchtende Neonreklamen durchbrochen wird ... Bobby Vacants Songs nehmen oft eine Wendung in abgründige Tiefen, die durch die Basslinie zu lichteren Harmonien verbunden werden. Geprägt vom Folk, vom Punk, vom Indie-Pop entstehen Songs vom Wagen, Gewinnen und Verlieren

The Artist Formerly Known as Hartmut Abendschein ist der Berner Schriftsteller, Herausgeber und Verleger Hartmut Abendschein. Er wurde auffällig durch verschiedenste literarische Recyclingmassnahmen, Appropriationen und schwer einschätzbare Textprojekte.

Sein jüngster Band “Flarf Disco. Popgedichte” erscheint mit einem Vorwort von Benedikt Satorius im Mai 2015 in der edition taberna kritika.
