A fantastic double bill featuring two of Alien Transistors best new acts at the Roter Salon this January with 1115 and Joasihno both performing live.
1115 are an experimental kraut-rave-IDM duo consisting of grey and fehler kuti. The two met in Munich in 2015 and started jamming in fehler’s kitchen in the Westermühlstrasse. Grey operates a virtual 808 drum machine, bass and organ synthesizer, while fehler kuti uses, loops and modulates his voice. Their performances are rythm heavy hypnotic jam sessions that range from noise soundscapes to techno like club raves. Imagine Dieter Moebius and The Residents attending a Hauka Cult ritual or Sister Rosetta Tharpe and Spaceman 3 jamming on a cruise ship down the river Ganges.
Joasihno are Cico Beck (Aloa Input, the Notwist) and Nico Sierig return with a new live set up that combines robot instruments, electronics and trashy percussion. Switching between analogue synths, world-percussion instruments and computer-programming, they draw inspiration from experimental pioneers like Mort Garson and the melancholy of Kraut-Electronica, with the knowledge of contemporary beat-making and in big admiration of the chansons of Moondog and the patterns of Steve Reich. Psychedelic machine music from Munich.
