Andreas Voccia Live at Orange ’Ear, Jan. 27th.

Andreas Voccia is a musician and video artist based in Berlin.
Originally a trained jazz guitar player, he now works with a modular synthesizer to implement compositional practices from contemporary classical music in an improvisational and responsive environment. Besides his solo work, he is currently involved in several projects with musicians from the experimental and free jazz scenes.

In his music he looks into abstract principles like movement, pattern, space, time, and how everything is interwoven with each other through resonance processes, in order to approach the fundamental question of the nature/essence of Reality. His main interest is to find in all the complex systems a poetic view which aims to draw out the tension betweeen the inside and the outside.

The recording is in post-production. Stay tuned for the release.

Tintin Patrone Live at Orange ’Ear, Jan. 6th 2024

With a focus on minimal sound work and long-duration performances, Tintin’s artistic endeavors are deeply influenced by her studies in microtonality. Using a trombone and a range of modulation devices, she crafts compositions that gradually unfold, featuring sustained tones that create a contemplative atmosphere. However, it is in the realm of drone music that Tintin Patrone truly carves her sonic identity. Embracing the mesmerizing and meditative qualities of drone, she skillfully utilizes her trombone and modulation devices to create expansive soundscapes.
Her compositions in this genre draw listeners into a sonic journey, where the immersive and sustained tones become a vehicle for introspection and a deep, almost meditative experience. Tintin’s drone music invites audiences to transcend the conventional boundaries of sound and immerse themselves in the hypnotic textures she weaves. Through her sonic explorations, she not only pushes the limits of artistic expression but also offers a unique perspective on the profound connections between music and the human experience.

Video – The Tangible Tryst

Once, when Jo worked in a salt mine, she switched off the headlight in a deep mining tunnel and found herself in the greatest silence and darkness. Apart from the taste of salt, the only thing that was present was absence. For decades she kept this feeling of emptiness.

On this album Jo opened up some dots of this empty token and a 10-kg sack of Asian flour burst onto a humdrum leeway. On this own run a grained crow flew untamed into a tangible tryst and leaving nothing but blunt salt.

Maximilian Glass (electronics) & Michael Thieke (clarinet)

September 15th, 2023

Set 1 (für Rosi) – Maximilian Glass & Michael Thieke

Set 2 (für Marcus) – Maximilian Glass & Michael Thieke

Maximilian Glass is a Berlin based sound artist, improviser and composer with a focus on resonating frequencies and the complementary relationship between acoustic, electro-acoustic and electronic sounds. He interprets playback devices as musical instruments, creates feedback systems, manipulates motors and plays objects. His work takes place in the form of concerts, installations, compositions, (radio)performances and mostly in scenarios of site-specific interactions.

Michael Thieke – clarinetist/composer/performer – is equally at home across a broad range of musical environments, such as experimental song forms, collectively composing projects, improvising collectives, and music on the fringes of jazz. He is exploring the minutiae of sound, timbre and noise, with a particular interest in microtonality and related sound phenomena. The qualities of slowness are another.

João Orecchia & Sicker Man – „Parallax“ – Release Concert

August 12th, 2023

João Orecchia: bassclarinet, modular system
Sicker Man: electric cello, effects
————————————–
João Orecchia and Sicker Man have been working together since 2003, when they met through a classified ad in a Berlin newspaper. They immediately connected through improvisation and analogue electronics, forming a vast and intricate musical communication style.
Throughout the pandemic, separately from each other, they engaged more and more with artists like Ornette Coleman and Bennie Maupin, which presented as a lucky surprise in the recording sessions. João had been learning the bass clarinet and working to incorporate the instrument with his modular system. Tobias had specialised on multiphonic and glitch-orientated effect pedals with his electric cello. The next step for the duo became obvious when they met in 2022 to record their new album ‚Parallax‘.
