letzte Gedanken für 2011



In Raum unter mir geht die Silvesterfeier los und ich hab irgendwie überhaupt keine Lust. Kommt vielleicht noch. Ich hoffe, bald mal an einen Punkt zu kommen, an dem ich die ganze Welt wieder ein bisschen leichter nehmen kann. Ich muß lernen, mich selbst wieder ein bisschen besser zu mögen. Im Moment will mir beides nicht so recht gelingen.

Hm, neues Jahr, neues Glück?

Berlin



Ich bin in Berlin und sitze beim Ernst-Markus in der Wohnung und am Samstag werde ich voraussichtlich einen außergewöhnlichen Auftritt haben. Und da freu ich mich drauf. Hier mal den feinige Flyer:

NEXT WARSTGIG: 10|12|11 LARRY'SLIQUIDLOVE, Judy's Kinobar, Berlin!

Es sei dem Berliner oder aber der Berlinerin angetragen, vorbeizukommen. Ich würde mich sehr sehr über bekannte Gesichter freuen.

Milton Keynes Gallery



Currently succumbing to a pretty bad PPS (post-performance-syndrome). So yes, the world is a bad old place and everyone hates me just as much as I hate everyone.

Yesterday, I was playing at what very definitely must be one of the weirdest places on earth: Milton Keynes.

Nice people, though.

I was loud! Very loud!

Sound was all fucked up: big square room with pretty randomly positioned speakers. I was confused for most of my act (more so than usually). By the end I joined the people outside while my gear was still running. There was no one left inside anyways.

Of course, the gig didn't involve getting paid.

Hm. Oh well...

Wird langsam ein bisschen weniger.



Ich hab jetzt schon seit einiger Zeit wieder ein Dach über dem Kopf.

Und was für eins!
ein riesiger Raum in einem sehr großen Haus voller großartiger Leute von überall her.
So lange hab ich noch nie dabei gebraucht, den Boden zu saugen und ich hatte wohl auch bisher noch nie soviel Spaß dabei. Die wenigen Leute, welche sich mal in einer meiner früheren Wohnungen aufgehalten haben, dürfte dies möglicherweise überraschen.

Momentan bietet mir diese Situation auf jeden Fall die Rückzugsmöglichkeiten, um langsam wieder ein bisschen Energie tanken zu können.

Lampe

Außerdem stehen einige Sachen an, auf die ich mich sehr freue. Und einige, auf die ich mich gar nicht freue, aber darauf gehe ich ein andermal ein. Ich habe ein spannendes Leben und ich genieße es langsam wieder.

Um meinen 80er-Jahre-Klassiker "alles in Ordnung" aus dem Jahr 2005 zu zitieren: "was wirst du tun wenn morgen die Welt brennt?"

Ich bereite mich vor. Solltet ihr auch.

Lebe dein Leben als Beispiel für die Möglichkeit einer anderen Welt! (Simon Schäfer, 28.10.2011)

Eva hat den Hessischen Filmpreis gewonnen!



Trotz aller persönlichen Angelegenheiten, die ich hier nicht weiter erörtern möchte, ist es doch sehr schön, wenn nahestehenden Menschen gutes widerfährt.

filmstill n gschichtn

Mit einer seltsamen Mischung aus Stolz, Schmerz und Freude weise ich also hier mal darauf hin, dass Eva Beckers wunderbarer Film n gschichtn, über den ich auch hier das eine oder andere mal berichtete, letzte Woche verdientermaßen den dann doch nicht ganz unbedeutenden Hessischen Filmpreis gewonnen hat.

---english---

Besides all the personal issues that I won't go into any deeper, it is great when nice things happen to the ones close to you.

It is with a strange mix of joy, pride and pain for me to announce that Eva Becker's wonderful Film n arratives has won the Hessische Filmpreis last week.

Herzlichen Glückwunsch.

URGENT!



My work is rooted in a political engagement not always completely apparent in the final outcome. My lifestyle is an integral part of my professional practice.

Squatting to me is a chosen lifestyle. Others aren't that fortunate. Their choice is to either squat or end up on the street. Tomorrow is the last day to answer the highly biased government consultatuion on the criminalisation of squatting. If you don't want to see yet another liberal part of english legislation go down the drain because of the disconnected millionaire morons ruling this country, please spare five minutes to answer a few questions here:

wird echt ein bisschen viel langsam



Jetzt hab ich mich auch noch erkältet. Liegt vielleicht daran, dass ich seit geraumer Zeit kaum noch in Betten schlafe, sondern meistens auf Böden. Es ist ein seltsames Gefühl, inmitten von diesem ganzen Reichtum quasi obdachlos zu sein. Mein Beruf bezahlt mir keine Miete, weil für Kultur keiner Geld ausgeben will. Wieso soll ich die ganze Zeit irgendwelche Kackjobs machen müssen?

Ich hätte gerne kurz mal ein bisschen Ruhe.

Gedanke des Tages | Thought of the day



In der Achterbahn muss man manchmal schreien.

In a rollercoaster, you sometimes need to scream.

[edit: insufficient vocabulary incident] see, there's a problem. Although German tends to be more precise at times, English doesn't really provide a sufficient translation for a more general word like "schreien". "To shout" doesn't exactly cover it and "to cry" doesn't fit that well, either. basically, it's about a mixture of both.

shout and cry.

short homecoming



Huiiiii,

Zunaechst also sei denn hiermit Sensationelles fett in die Welt gebruellt:

der Warst kommt am 16.9. (Ja, diesen Freitag) nach Hochheim um dort mit Toenen und Bildern um sich zu werfen!

Stattfinden wird dies wohl so Abends bis Nachts im Campobasso, das ja wohl so gut wie jedem Hochheimer hoffentlich ein Begriff sein sollte. Wenn nicht, ist am Berliner Platz und nicht mehr lange da. Jetzt also noch schnell hin und eine der letzten wenigen kulturellen Oasen meiner Ursprungsstadt kennen- und lieben lernen! Ja Ja!

Die Veranstaltung wird sich als ein Ergebnis spontaner Inspiration des Herrn Idstein durch Frau Steinmueller "Moppelkotze LIVE" nennen und hier koennt ihr ein entsprechendes grafisches Erlebnis bewundern, (linkt zu der facebookveranstaltung):

Ich wuerde mich tierisch freuen, ein paar bekannten Gesichtern ueber den Weg zu stolpern. Ist lange her. Ihr wisst wer ihr seid, ich freu mich auf euch.

------------------------------------------switch to english--------------------------------

Well, der Warst is gonna play in the place Simon Schaefer spent the first twenty years of his life in. should you be in or around 65239 Hochheim in Germany on 16th of this month, which is this Friday(!), come to the Campobasso at Berliner Platz and see me throw around sounds and pictures.

If you don't happen to be in Hochheim around then, don't worry, you could come 's-Hertogenbosch (Netherlands) on Saturday (that is one day later) to see me play at this event: http://game-city.nl/kunstnacht/. I'm playing with the amazing Eindbaas crew again and it's definitely gonna be brilliant!

There will presumably also be another gig in Amsterdam a few days later, but the date isn't confirmed yet, so I'll have to bug you again once I know.

Yup, busy times! See you soon.

Hocheimer Zeitung / Wiesbadener Kurier



Da kann man mal sehn, wie mir momentan das Leben um die Ohren fliegt. Ich hatte wärend meines Kurzaufenthaltes in Hochheim ein Gespräch mit dem Herrn Uli von Mengden von der lokalen Presse, welches bereits am 27. August den Artikel "Computer in der Waschmaschine" in der Hochheimer Zeitung oder im Wiesbadener Kurier (?) zeitigte. Und dann vergaß ich völlig, ihn hier zu verlinken. Nun denn aber mal schnell nachgeholt. Der Artikel enthält unter anderem folgendes kurioses Foton, aufgenommen im Garten meiner Eltern:

kuriose fotonen

Und es ist schon auch immer wieder interessant zu sehen, was sich andere aus Interviews mit mir zusammenzwirbeln...

Hö, und kaum versieht man's sich, kommt doch heute direkt ein zweiter, meines Erachtens besser geratener Text hinterhergerutscht: "Metapher für ein Zeitgefühl" Diesmal über meine dann doch auch schon fünf Jahre alte Schkulptur "Big Play", die ich immer noch sehr gerne mag und über die Herr von Mengden allerfeinstens daherfabuliert, was ich mir gerne gefallen lasse. Besser hätt ich's auch nicht gekonnt. Dankeschön.

Big Play

Den schönsten Absatz kopiere ich hier mal her. Hat zwar kaum was mit mir zu tun, ist aber Klasse Trivialwissen, und davon kann man ja einigermaßen bekanntermaßen nie genug haben:

"Der Pullover mit der Kapuze half in den 1930er Jahren den Lagerarbeitern in New York, sich schnell beim Gang ins Kühlhaus vor der Kälte zu schützen. Sylvester Stallone hat ihn in Rocky getragen und die Modeschöpfer erhoben ihn zur Haute Couture. Ein "Accessoire des Unbehagens" betitelte ein kulturkritischer Geist das Kleidungsstück angesichts der uniformierten Kleidung städtischer Protestler."

Huiii.

Hier gehts zum zweiten Artikel.

Na, das ist doch alles hocherfreulich.

Night shift

Night Shift

Katy Kirbach & Simon Schäfer

 

SimonOldfield
 

Private View
7 September 2011, 18.30 — 20.30
 

Exhibition continues to
28 September 2011


Night Shift explores the relationship between painting, sculpture and performance with new work by Simon Schäfer and Katy Kirbach.  

The exhibition examines the tension between the handmade and ready-made; multiplicity and uniqueness; live event and still object; the diurnal and nocturnal.  Night Shift is visually and aurally layered with texture, sound, digital feeds, colour and analogue electronics.

Downloaded a plugin to make gifsicle work with Gimp. You can find it here. If you ever were annoyed with the overall quality of your gifs, YOU WILL BE AMAZED. Only for Linux, though. But you might as well consider getting a proper operating system, too. Eat your heart out, Photoshop.

New work for an upcoming show is on its way.

Here's a small Vorgeschmack for both:

Leaving Nijmegen today



It has been amazing!

Thank you very much Extrapool, de-affaire and Nijmegen in general for all the hospitality. I had a really good time. Hope to get some pictures or videos of the gig. As soon as I get something, I'll upload it.

until then, here's someone who thinks I'm too fiddly (and has got something against those gameboy noise music anyway)

And here I'm slingering the Kanten uit. I just read it through some translation engine, and basically, it calls my set an incoherent mess. Fair enough. I think enough people enjoyed exactly that.

Back to Nijmegen on 19th of July



Still feeling kind of deflated from taking down the show (and all of last weeks antics), I have to start taking care about future endeavours. There's a few more applications to be written and I seriously despise Artist statements, so this is gonna be .

But there's a few pleasant things coming up as well:

First of all, on 19.07.2011 der Warst will gloriously return to Nijmegen, where he's gonna play at the de-affaire festival

Also, now that I suddenly have way more time on my hands than I can handle, I really need to think about doing that DVD for Hand baked records.

I'll probably make some quick'n'dirty CD for Nijmegen, too.

Oh, and a lot of my gear seriously needs to go to the maintenance bay...

KNOWHOW - Curated by Ben Newton

To acquire knowhow is to gain the practical skills or intelligence necessary to get something specific done. This is tacit knowledge in the sense that it can be withheld and kept confidential. It may also be difficult to transfer without practical instruction and the required cognitive faculty in the beholder. In the artist this skill has traditionally revealed itself as craft.

Since the dawn of the Readymade, craft in Art has continually been brought into question, and as a result any preconception of a definitive Artistic Knowhow has been blurred or expanded to involve a myriad of scenarios or conditions.

Knowhow aims not necessarily to pin down a definition of the word but to ask the artists to delve into their own practice or maybe push themselves beyond their normal bounds of proficiency. This might manifest itself in a cathartic exploration of an unknown craft, an engagement with a 'knowing' failure or even through the use of prosthetic labour which utilises the employment of non-artistic intervention.

KNOWHOW is a curatorial project by Ben Newton in collaboration with Campbell Works

at some "afterparty" of the ATR gig right now... a flat in shoreditch. Italian girls, Polish Beer, Pasta, Tequila.

Everyone is just really really drunk and mostly italian and mostly enjoying themselves. At least I am not italian, drunk. I have a bed of my own and a computer with internet access.

I bought a Nintendo DS and DS-10+ on ebay while I was still on tour and the DS arrived today/yesterday and I have a new gadget I'm well excited about. DS-10 is fucking amazing Waaaaaah, This world sometimes is a nice place to live in.

Hat sehr sehr viel Spass gemacht, mal wieder in Offenbach zu spielen. Schoen, dass ihr alle da wart. Schoen, dass die tollste Frau der Welt waehrenddessen in einen besonderen Geburtstag hereinfeierte. Das traf sich dann allen Unkenrufen zum trotze recht gut. Spaet am Abend ergab sich die Gelegenheit fuer ein Fotonenshooting mit ihr, Jos und dem geheimnisvollen Nacktmann.

Jos und der Nacktmann Eva

Gar keine Fotos vom Auftritt gemacht, und nur ganz wenige sonst, was eigentlich ein bisschen traurig ist, weil wirklich ganz viele Leute erschienen, die mir sehr wichtig sind und das haette ich gerne festgehalten. Mit meiner Kamera zu arbeiten ist momentan ein ziemliches Geeier. Mal geht sie, mal nicht. Meistens nicht.

Wiesbaden



Mit dem Ordnungsamt gegen das Ordnungsamt.

For whatever reason, this year councils sent out notices reminding clubs, bars and generally all the places that people go to for dancing, that there is a paragraph in the Hessische Verfassung which prohibits dancing from good Friday to easter Sunday.

Christianity says: "People should either dance for our cause or not at all."

State says: "OK, I'll make it a law."

So basically what happened was: I had to play with a limiter which made for the weirdest sound. There was only high and mid frequencies, NO BASS AT ALL!

And guess what?

It was good fun and People fucking loved my set!

I was supported by Inox Kapell's great Ordnungsamt et la Politesse, they also had a shit sound and didn't care.

Ordnungsamt Wiesbaden

During my set, there were several people coming up to my table asking weird technical questions. I had to very seriously tell one guy that everyone who touches my stuff without my permission while I'm playing is very likely to die a slow, painful death. And there were two girls coming over explaining to me that my stuff is cool because it's experimental, but they'd rather listen to something danceable.

I sold two T-shirts and two rolls of tape.

At the end of the night, the people from the venue started playing music from my website over the place's soundsystem.

I arrived a Eva's place around 6 am.

I looked like this:

Hamburg...



Well...

Playing to an audience of 5 (spread over the whole night).

We were quite good and the barman and the owner of the place really liked it.

Again, we got paid with beer and this time, we drank enough. Ernst Markus even a bit more than enough.

Apart from the gig, we were around a lovely bunch of people who made us feel very welcome. A very special Dankeschön goes to Monika and Ken. Next time I come to Hamburg, I'll call them directly.

Hm... Münster



Münster, EMS, Überostern, tour, der Warst No cable, so
no visuals.
No communication, so
no audience.
No respect, so
no pay

It's way more fun to play to interested audiences.
It's way more fun to get to other places without having to change trains about 7 times.
It's way more fun to not show up at the place you're playing in at about nine and they tell you they didn't think you were coming at all, so they sent people home.

It is really annoying to loose quite a lot of money travelling to a place that doesn't seem to appreciate you.

Münster seems to be the essence of what the ideal westgerman city should look like.

We got paid in drinks and didn't drink enough. At least there's nice people to stay with.

I forgot to take a Tabletetris-picture.

Here's something else instead:

Nice one.

Had some issues with the Sound.

My GP2X appears to be dead now.

I played with Knalpot.

I was well impressed.

Have to try a few other recording modes with the H1.

Sold no T-shirt, made 2 new T-shirts.

I hurl around a very heavy suitcase.

Fuck it's heavy.

This place (Landbouwbelang-Ihavenoideawhatthatmeans) is a huge maze.

This place is a maze.

it got a bit rough yesterday and one of my SNESes aparently fell to the floor. The left "shouderbutton" key got stuck and I had to solder a new one in, which reminds me: I still have to buy some two-component glue to fix it in...

But yeah, overall a very good night. Very nice people all over the place, I recorded some stuff. I had casualties which is a bit discomforting given it was the first gig of the tour, but I very much enjoyed it.

Sneglo Wrozemblerapp molme!

99% Browsercompatibility!!!!



After another day and night's work I can now proudly announce that pretty much everything on this website is working on all browsers I've tested it with, which are pretty much most major browsers out there!

So, yeah, whether you're using Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Opera, Konqueror or whatever, the site looks pretty much the same, and that is: gorgeous! (in my not so humble opinion)

Internet explorer still has some issues with the menue's opacity, but that's because it doesn't allow any opacity settings, anyways. So, if you really have to use IE, well... go get a decent browser!

Hm...

Maybe it's only 95%...

Pöh, should be enough!

promo poem



Just wrote a small poem for promoters to put in their press releases and thought it might look nice over here as well..

der Warst came at the turn of times
He chewed the devices to make them forget
Ruler of Boxes and Cables
There are Keyboards Super Nintendos Game Boys and such
Towering, to scream Song and Picture
Noise Rythm Melody Video!
And the World opens Ears
And the World opens Eyes
And dances
Or not

der Warst kam zur Zeitenwende
Er kaute die Geräte damit sie vergessen
Gebieter über Kisten und Kabel
Es sind Keyboards Super Nintendos Game Boys und solches
Aufgetürmt, Lied und Bild zu schreien
Lärm Rythmus Melodie Video!
Und die Welt hält sich die Ohren auf
Und die Welt hält sich die Augen auf
Und tanzt
Oder eben nicht.
