Two thirds of Groupshow, Andrew Pekler & Jan Jelinek will make a live appearance at the Roter Salon this April to present the works of Jelineks alter-ego Ursula Bogner.
Ursula Bogner surfaced for the first time three years ago, when Jan Jelinek got a bundle of tapes of the deceased Berlin electronic music pioneer and introduced her strikingly contemporary sounding music to the public.
On his Faitiche label the techno alchemist recently has completed the second album with Bogner’s music. “Sun = black box” is a collection of minimalistic etudes, which have been composed between 1970 and 1980: cascading clicks and sparkling swarms make one think of either cosmic spheres or something microscopicly small.

This kind of fits well to the image of a pharmacist, once employed at Schering, and a mother with a passion for proto-synthesizer and the aesthetic principles of musique concrète.

However, rumors in the blog world said that Bogner is an invention of Jelinek. Perceiving the physical resemblance between Bogner and Jelinek on photographies, the suspicion can not be dismissed.
