JOPO & Ingeborg Poffet haben als Duo fatale ein neues music-video-Art-project: lost cities / Verlorene Städte kreiert, das im September 7 Tage lang in Basel als begehbare Klang-, Sprach- und Bildinstallations-Aufführung zum aktuellen Weltgeschehen und die Rolle des Menschen darin zu erleben sein wird. Photographien von Jean-Pierre Addor werden auf transparente Screens projiziert, allesamt Detailaufnahmen von Installationen des Künstlers Heinz Schäublin, die als Inspirationsquelle für aktuelle Lyrik von Ingeborg Poffet dienten. Das Ganze ist verbunden mit einem elektronischen Soundtrack von JOPO, zu dem sich die Musiker als Wortkünstler und Vokalakrobaten mit den Gedichten betätigen. An der Finissage wird die abschliessende Gesprächsrunde mit diversen Gästen aus Quartiersarbeit & Politik von Olivier Roos moderiert.

Das Projekt handelt von der Zerstörung einzelner Städte, Völker und der Welt, Kriegen, und der Rolle der Regierungen und des Volkes vorher, während und nachher. Hochaktuell, brisant und emotional aufwühlend und – hoffentlich – aufrüttelnd, eine Poesie der Wahrnehmung, visuell, verbal und musikalisch, im Spannungsverhältnis zwischen Hyperaktivität und Lethargie, zum  Kraftherd Zukunftsglaube. Zeitgeist pur.

Konzert: Yuri Landman (NL)

Yuri Landman (1973) is a musician and an inventor of musical instruments. Based on prepared guitar techniques, he built his first instrument in 2001 to solve the inaccuracy of instant preparations. He has build experimental for acts such as Sonic Youth, dEUS, Melt-Banana, Rhys Chatham, Ex-Easter Island Head, Half Japanese, Kaki King.

In the past seven years he has given over 100 DIY-instrument building workshops in Europe and the US at music festivals, music academies, art academies, concert venues and art spaces. In 2012 Yuri Landman and Bart Hopkin published Nice Noise, a book about string preparations and extended techniques for guitar. In the same year he started his band Bismuth with Arnold van de Velde followed by an album in 2014 Bismuth.

Institutes such as MIM (Phoenix), Muziekgebouw aan ’t IJ, WORM, Extrapool, Sonoscopia own collections of his instruments. Articles about his work have appeared in Pitchfork, The Guardian, CNN, Libération, El País, Frankfurter Allgemeine, and many others.

Workshop #2: Home Swinger & Triochord workshop by Yuri Landman

The Home Swinger is a simplified version of the Moodswinger designed to be easy to assemble and play. It does not feature the slick finished design of the Moodswinger, but is exactly the same sounding instrument. Yuri Landman presents a 4 hour long Do-It-Yourself workshop whereby participants will leave with a finished Home Swinger instrument as well as a strong understanding of its structure and workings. The difficult soldering part will be taken care of by Yuri. Participants require no special skills and the difficulty of the process has been compared to building a piece of IKEA furniture!

In advance of the workshop Yuri will prepare the component parts of the instrument for the participant to use in construction. These include: 4 pieces of ready shaped wood in the required sizes and predrilled with holes, easy to employ machine heads for the strings, one pickup (good quality, equal to Fender), an on/off switch, a jack output, a few screws, bolts and nuts and some metal for the bridges, as well as two sets of strings.

Artists who own a Home Swinger are Micachu, The Luyas, These Are Powers, David Holmes, A Place To Bury Strangers, Ice, Sea, Dead People, The Go!-Team, Action Beat, Jay Malhotra (Kate Nash), We vs. Death, Zoppo, Thread Pulls, Signe Tollefsen, Susies Haarlok, Kapitan Korsakov, At No Bikini Beach, Jad Fair, DAAU, Ex-Easter Island Head, Foot Village and Wu Fei.

The Triochord is an enhanced version of the monochord/Didley Bow. All strings are tuned in unisono giving an excellent natural chorus effect. This instrument workshop is very cheap compared to the other workshops and therefore highly suitable to organise at music education centres and conservatories. The instrument features a common Western logarithmic scale as well as a scale of harmonics.

Price Home Swinger: 140.- CHF / Price Triochord: 55.- CHF
