Recorded in a wooden box in the bowels of an industrial building in Neuköln, Berlin on Sunday the 27th of January 2019.
There was no snow outside just a grey day. Anxiety as a party builds on the other side of the wall. The cocoon of sonic wrapping making a tender space in the mists of the tension.

Who’s gotta cymbal en mallets en wants to get cymbolicious with the Dagora Cymbal Orchestra at Green Tribe on Sunday 14th for the Sotu festival?

Holla at ya girl Rogier Smal #1-800cymbal #whatsyourcymbal

ah man! i am stoked to be joining stephen doyle’s “sonic cymbal orchestra” at sotu festival this year. 56635196_813814002288392_9098387625252749312_n

we are playing at green tribe on the 14th of april. yeah! a new squatted terrain in amsterdam, cause fuck the cops !


 SOTU will occupy the Sint Augustinus church on Thursday afternoon

This church, built in 1889, was squatted last february, after being left to rot and die by the owners 5 years ago. Since the judge couldn’t bear to kick them out, there will be at least another two weeks for them – and then: to infinity, we hope

SO SOTU can occupy the church on Thursday, from 14:00 it will be FREE PLAY FOR ALL. Bring your voice, bring your sticks and wires and whistles, bring a hangover and a good appetite for INFINITE REVERB for the silent guns of love will BLAST THE SKIES

There will be A PROGRAM from 4pm, the line-up will be there just in time. DAGORA has expressed interest, as well as ZS ZS (the organ is working!!) and VESTAS, and more TO COME. You interested to perform? Let us know!

HOW TO GET THERE: it’s an interesting bike-ride, but not very convenient by public transport, so we’ve arranged a permanent busconnection from the IJplein (take the free ferry behind Central Station) to the church. From 13:30 there will be a green VW T4 with a SOTU sign waiting to take you to the church. Later the bus can take you to Zaal 100 where the 2nd night of SOTU festival will take place. From 18 there’s also some really nice food in Zaal100. These are free rides for all, but please help the driver survive!

WHAT TO BRING: church people will supply us with coffee and tea. SOTU will bring some beers. Anything else: BRING YOUR OWN. There’s a kitchen we can use (no meat please!) so come cook up some breakfast to fuck the pain away

14:00 – 16:00
16:00 – 18:00
Line-up (will be announced at 4)

(cassette by Toztizok Zoundz)

Did I hear of Dagora before? I can’t recall. Not sure if they now split up with a name like this, or perhaps if there is some hidden pun/nod/respect to The Artist Formerly Known as Prince. At least he made it to the cover, so it must be. Maybe this is just a one-off release from the weird and wacky minds that you also find with Occii, Amsterdam’s more adventurous stages when it comes to new music. Both sides of this eighty-minute tape revolve around the sound of the cymbal, one of those parts of the drum kit, in case you were wondering; and yes, Prince referred to himself as the symbol at one point. It all ties together. On the first side, we have Stevus playing the cymbal acoustically without the use of any effects and he does that to great effect. I guess it’s easy to hit the cymbal and get it going, ringing and singing as you would know it, but after about sixteen minutes he takes the sound down and it becomes all spooky and quiet, like someone moving around in the recording space with a handheld recorder, going outside and the cymbal almost disappearing. It ends with a poem and sparse cymbal sound. It is all-together a great piece,
powerful and delicate. On the other side is PQ uses Stevus recording and putting it through what is just called ‘his wide range of machines, the circuit bending wizard’, so I have vaguely an idea of what’s going on, but that is also based upon what I hear here. PQ moves the original around, sometimes sounding like the ‘original + transformations’, but at a few assorted points in time the transformations are to such an extent that they no longer sound like a cymbal. Towards the end, it becomes some sort of crazy electronic organ doodle, and it is hard to believe it has anything to do with the cymbal. PQ offers quite a wild ride here, going from one end to the exact opposite but it surely works quite well; different kind of power. Nice risograph printed cover also wrapped around
here and it tops off a fine product that oozes the halcyon days of cassette releases. (FdW)

Petite rappel! N’oubliez pas de réserver votre dimanche 9 décembre!

Petite rappel! N’oubliez pas de réserver votre dimanche 9 décembre! On va voyager entre Free Jazz, Kraut et Noise avec Lori Goldston, Mik Quantius, Thomas Hopf, Jens Pollheide, les excellents Piloot et puis le duo liègeois qui monte Nystagmus aka le duo Tom Malmendier et Farida Amadou

Lori Goldston will perform with Mik Quantius (Embryo), Jens Pollheide (Embryo) and Thomas Hopf (Damo Suzuki & Michael Karoli Sofortkontakt from CAN)… Check this unmissable reunion!

Lori Goldston and Friends (Embryo members) – Piloot – Nystagmus

Collectif Mental proudly presents:

Lori Goldston music (Nirvana/Earth – Seattle) & friends

Nous avons l’honneur de recevoir Lori Goldston, célèbre violoncelliste, prof, improvisatrice et compositrice de musique de film, originaire de Seattle. Lori a collaboré depuis la fin des 80’s avec de nombreux groupes et artistes dont Nirvana, Earth, Secret Chiefs 3, Cat Power, Marisa Anderson, David Byrne, Natacha Atlas, Matana Roberts et tant d’autres.

Profitant de son passage à Paris, au Centre Georges Pompidou, elle fera un crochet par La Zone avec quelques amis qui viendront l’accompagner sur scène. Parmi eux, notamment, le frontman au verbe ébouriffant Mik Quantius, que nous avions eux la chance d’apercevoir à La Zone avec Embryo l’année dernière.

D’autres pointures de la scène kraut et expérimentale allemande seront également de la partie.

Piloot (Be)

(FR) Le trio bruxellois Piloot est sorti de l’ombre en 2017 avec un premier EP éponyme. Ils viendront nous présenter “Recuerda tu futuro”, leur dernière production en date.

Leur compositions instantanées les ont emmenés en tournée en Inde et en Europe, accompagnant Marc Ribot et son projet Ceramic Dog, ainsi qu’Acid Mothers Temple.

Repoussant les limites de leurs instruments par le recours à l’électronique et autres techniques sonores avancées, Piloot crée un voyage astral au travers de motifs répétitifs, de drones et de chaos extatiques, vous laissant dans un état de transe au milieu de paysages kaléidoscopiques. Leur performance au sol, au centre du public, nous offre une expérience immersive. On pourrait penser à Kraftwerk, Brian Eno, Jon Hassell, Cluster.

Florian Guibert: flute
Cyrille de Haes (Otto Lindholm) : contrebasse
JP De Gheest (Mark Lanegan band): batterie

«This trio is probably the best possibility to enter back summums of improv-free-rock-kraut-jazz that a combo as CAN did sublimely in the 70’s.»
Rodolphe Coster

NYSTAGMUS (Tom Malmendier & Farida Amadou duo)

Nystagmus est un duo impro/noise, basé à Liège et mené par Farida Amadou (Cocaine Piss) à la basse électrique, et Tom Malmendier à la batterie et autres joyeusetés bruitistes.

La musique de Nystagmus est principalement influencée par le bruit, les odeurs, tout ce qui groove, et aussi ce qui ne groove pas.
