Xerox Exotique #033: Kazehito Seki – … – NuR – Tzii – 19.12.2018

Kazehito Seki is an amplified voice artist. From Tokyo. Voiz set is played just with 1 or 2 microphone/s with NO electronic FX. Working on the sound produced from the vocal organ in broader and more concrete sense, relativises the existing interpretation of the “voice” (such as singing, talking, etc). The wide spectrum flickers in subtle ambience, intense silence and brutal harsh noise in a microsecond.

Self Toxication is another project that abstracts the “voice” forming into the sound deeper. The toxin over amplified in stereo channels feedbacking between soundsystem and the physicality (as the hardcore), cuts up himself messing up at the top speed of harsh noise.

Since 2006, Kazehito has been blasting his voice in numerous projects, bands with following keywords >>> cutups, drone, experimental, grind, noiserock, sadcore, sludge, “Voiz” choir, and collaborations with >>> butoh, installations, videofeedbacks, etc. Some of his past stages are listed as below: allEars (2018 / Oslo), Ende Tymes (2017 / NYC), MultiDOM (2016-17 / Over Europe), ART MEETING (2016, 14 / Fukushima), FRIV Festival (2016 / Poznań), MultiMadeira (2015 / Madeira), (LUFF2016, 15 / Lausanne), etc.

Self Toxication

. . .  –  Since his twenties, the being behind the soundless moniker . . . (as known as Nikola H. Mounoud) process in real time; analog, digital and hybrid feedbacks in order to produce unique, powerful and highly dynamic live performances where irresponsible noise, unexpected dense sonic blasts, total non-sense and deep irrationality meets allowing the audience to absorb the unleashed raw beauty of the frequencies wrath.


Traffucked field recordings. Severely screwed and always delayed recordings due to high levels of compression. a set for the last ones and the retarded.


Since the 90’s Tzii, music composer and filmmaker, spreads his frequencies all over the world through touring from Eastern and Western Europe to Australia, passing by USA, South-East Asia, Canada, Japan, Indonesia and Africa, where he played hundreds of shows..… “A mountain of multiple figures” as defined by Nyx … His main aim is to reach transcendance through sound trance, layering and looping to another dimension …… To do so he explores infinite different worlds and expressions, from music to performance or collective creations. One thing always remains in his works : they’re impossible to fit in any box. He’s part of several other projects like SOLAR SKELETONS, MS30, 1997EV, VIRIL, AEROBICONOISE and works also for dance companies, living performances, movie soundtracks and any other mediums with sound inside ….. He collaborated on stage or in studio with numerous other fellow musicians around the world and is currently engaged in a never ending world tour …..

Xerox Exotique #031: Spherical Disrupted vs. Hidden Technology – Feine Trinkers bei Pinkels Daheim – 22.09.2018

Die Ausbreitung des Informationsüberflusses ins All: nicht erstmalig, aber nach längerer Pause fusionieren hidden technology (ht) und Spherical Distrupted zu einer Einheit. Die ht-typische Dokumentation persönlicher (und jetzt auch fremder) Lebensumwelten wird durch Spherical Distrupted ins Weltall befördert. Field Recordings im schalllosen Raum. Found Sounds vom Mars, SETI Raw Data und der (unhörbare) Lärm einen Sonnenexplosion.

Spherical Disrupted veröffentlichte seit 1995 Tonträger und hat über 70 Konzerte in Deutschland und Europa gespielt, u.a. auf Festivals wie Maschinenfest, Elektroanschlag, Schlagstrom-Festival, Wroclaw Industrial Festival und Summer Darkness. Der Sound von Spherical Disrupted kann als eine Mixtur aus Dark Ambient und IDM bezeichnet werden.

Hidden technology (ht) arbeiten sei der Jahrtausendwende an akustischen Dokumentationen mit dem Hang zum Arrangement. ht lieben Schnittstellen: Aufnahmegeräte aller Art, Kontaktmicrophone, Gitarren und Notebooks als universale Black Box zur Klanggenerierung: Verbindungspunkte zwischen Mensch, Gerät und Ton in wechselnden Konstellationen.

Feine Trinkers bei Pinkels Daheim: They are from Bremen and Lörrach on the German coasts, and have toured everything from The Netherlands to Switzerland, Russia and Great Britain extensively over the last 2 decades.
In the last 2 decades, they released unique vinyl CD and cassettes in multiple editions , usually personalised and with personalised hand-painted artwork.

Every show of Feine Trinkers bei Pinkels is an experience for itself – it’s timeless, it’s a feast for the ears, and it’s such a pleasure to see them doing all the work on stage when you just lean back staring at them, with their aural earbuds tickling your eardrums.

Now, Yesterday or Tomorrow, and why do they have such an attention to detail – that’s the question you will ask yourself.

Xerox Exotique #030: Bodycocktail – The big Black riding Hoods – 30.08.2018

Bodycocktail: “Nobody loves you my way. My heart, my soul, my way.” Across 25 years Zan Hoffman’s Bodycocktail project has nearly 250 releases ~ in excess of 2200 songs. Popular on Spain’s west coast in Galicia this artist from Kentucky has an extensive history in home-taping. 1984-2011 his label ZH27 was a networking powerhouse of creativity responsible for over 1100 releases including collaborations with over 300 artists worldwide. But these eye-watering figures do little to describe the wonder of his concerts. Zan’s live shows display consummate artistic commitment and are full of love and wonder. “Nobody loves you my way, no way!” he croons with the deepest sincerity. There are few artist that win over audiences unfamiliar to their work like Zan does.

The big Black riding Hoods [capitalization their choice] are an illusive triumvirat shrouded in mystery. Who are they? What do they do? Why do they do it? And probably most pressing: WHAT are they?

Rumours abound: A rogue darknet AI made flesh through chthonic incantations? An escalated experiment in transgenetic altercation? Apocryphal angels avenging altered atavistic anachronists?
Come… and try to find out.
