Memento

An immense part of my childhood and memories. Yet, contemporary in an unsettling way. And it is located far, far away in any meaningful sense of the words.

Le Mépris By Le Mépris

February 16th, 2018 Comments off

I like this album a lot. It is so melancholic, it contains piano, cello and it is scaled down, yet dramatic.

I like the artwork, I like the label [sic!] and I like the (assumed) über-reference as well.

The title and the artist’s name must have been taken from the identically named 1960’s film directed by Jean-Luc Godard and starring Brigitte Bardot? Contempt (1963).

It is very strong word, in any language.

This week the 18th – 23rd October 2011 you have the possibility to visit the Sound of Stockholm festival in Sweden.

“Sound of Stockholm is a new festival for improvised, new and experimental art music. The festival takes place a week each autumn. It is artist-driven and organised through a collaboration between 9 independent presenting societies along with EMS and the Swedish Musician’s Alliance.”

The week is filled with performances by well-known and not so well-known artists. The hub of events is the glorious Kulturhuset in the very centre of Stockholm. This Saturday, 22-10-2011 you should direct special attention to Ludvig Elblaus solo performance: King Of Infinite Space, pt 3.

The first part was performed at Audiorama during the Kulturnatten event in Stockholm and the second at the Flim Open Air Festival in Vinterviken this summer.

The project is based on one composition that is presented in three different ways in three different contexts. At Audiorama the original composition was used in a shortened but otherwise unprocessed form. At the outdoor Flim festival the original composition was multiplied and superimposed thus creating a compact, dense mass of sound. In the third and final part being performed at Kulturhuset; the original components will be disassembled and processed in order to construct a new integral piece.

Ludvig Elblaus’ set is one of three presented by Fylkingen on Saturday night. The other two sets are performances by: Axel Dörner / Jassem Hindi and Andrea Belfi.
