Und dann morgen (Mittwoch) noch eins:

Spontan ergab sich dann noch eine weitere Station in Wien:

LIVE-FILMVERTONUNG von der Warst (Berlin)

Stummfilme sind nicht einfach stumm, sie wurden bei uns durch Live-Musik untermalt. Damit ist der Stummfilm eine eigenständige Kunstform, die Film und Konzert vereint. Simon Schäfer (der Warst) begleitet Im Bioskop am Mittwoch, 10. September 2014 um 21:00 Uhr alte Filme mit neuer Musik.

Aelita - Queen of Mars (1924)
(Russian Science-Fiction Film English Intertitles)
Directed By Yakov Protozoan
Written By Aleksei Fajko and Fyodor Otsep
Based On A Play By Aleksei Tolstoy

Communication (1928)
Producer: DeVry School Films, Inc.
Interested animated instructional film detailing electronic communications in the early part of the century.
Interestingly enough, the popular vocational school DeVry claims that they began as a school in 1931, with no mention of the production of these informational films as early as (in the case of this film) 1928.

Nur damit hier kein Irrtum aufkommt:

Nicht ich bin am Sonntagabend Weltmeister geworden, sondern lediglich die deutsche Männerfußballnationalmannschaft.

Dies ist meines Erachtens nur bedingt darauf zurück zu führen, dass sich Menschen in den letzten paar Wochen allenthalben recht merkwürdig benahmen, sondern wahrscheinlich darauf, dass die Mannschaft gut Fußball spielte. Dieses jedoch kann ich nur sehr schwer beurteilen, weil ich von der ganzen Weltmeisterschaft nur einen Bruchteil der Nachspielzeit des letzten Spiels aufmerksam verfolgt hatte. Mein restliches Leben ist ja anregend genug, als dass ich es mir von den Marketingstrategien anderer Leute regeln lassen muss. Dass sie gewannen ist aber dann ja auch in Ordnung so und ich gebe gerne zu, dass mir das einzige und letzte Tor dieser WM, welches ich sah, gut gefiel.

Sonst ist jetzt aber auch mal wieder gut, denn wie bereits erwähnt, bin weder ich, noch sonst die wenigsten anderen Menschen aus meinem Bekanntenkreis Weltmeister geworden.

23. Mai Bended Realities Offenbach

Diesen Freitag Abend also ergibt es sich, dass anlässlich des dort stattfindenden Bended Realities Festivals ich in Offenbach im Waggon nun mal wieder mich finden werde.

Dort werde ich ausnahmsweise mal nicht alleine, sondern mit dem freundlichen Herrn Inox Kapell zusammen musizieren. Ich empfehle zahlreiches Erscheinen.

This Friday, I will play at the Bended Realities Festival at the Waggon in Offenbach. And it is with a significant amount of pleasure to announce that I will be playing with my longtime friend and musical collaborator Inox Kapell!

Please come and tell your Friends.

Bended Realities

left London

I played a last official/inoficcial gig at 'eXperimental electronics' in the Castle in London. I was not on the Setlist and blagged my way in. I had only one instrument, my trusty ZOOOM SOS. Lara gave me 10 minutes, I made good use of them, even if I started playing during the cigarette break to a pretty empty room.

Tim Drage filmed it which I am very greatful for.

gerade hinstellen und loslaufen

Ich bin am Mittwoch nach Berlin umgezogen. London war mir dann auf Dauer einfach zu heftig und ich habe dort viel zu viel Zeit damit verschwendet, depressiv zu sein und mich selbst nicht leiden zu können. Da hab ich keine Lust mehr drauf. Mal sehen, wie es hier wird.

Ich bin auf alle Fälle hinreichend aufgeregt und darüber hinaus auch auf der Suche nach einer Bleibe.

Es gibt viel zu tun. Auf geht's

I've done some research on DIY ribbon controllers recently, and after what seems like endless pondering, I'm coming up with results! Building these things is ridiculously easy. And cheap. And fun.

I'm trying to teach myself some techniques and test different materials as I'm thinking this would be a perfect thing to show people how to build in workshops.

Moving and all is taking up a lot of time and brain, so I'm not too sure if I'm gonna be able to do it in London before I leave. It's a bit of a shame, but I already have so many things to do I won't stress myself too much about it.

I'm outta here

Dear London friends,

I've mentioned it earlier, so I guess some of you are aware that I am leaving London for good quite soon. Right now, I'm planning my leaving party.

Which is going to happen on 4/4/14 at my home.

Obviously, this is a big thing for me. I would like to celebrate the time I spent here with the people I spent it with. So if you ever thought about me as someone you enjoyed having met, please consider coming. Oh, and please bring your nice friends and drinks, too.

If the weather works in our favour, we're gonna meet in the afternoon to do a nice bbq in Burgess Park, where we'll stay until we feel like going over to my place which is just around the corner. There, we shall drink alcoholic beverages and such, talk to each other, and have one nice time together. I'm not super fussed about the music. Please bring your songs, so we can either dance or sit around listening to them.

There's probably gonna be some kind of live multimedia extravaganza. Not quite sure how exactly.

Just two things:

1: It is gonna be in South London. Crossing a river doesn't hurt nearly as much as you'd imagine it would. I do it on a daily basis. Also, not being able to do so doesn't count as a valid excuse for not showing up. There's enough space to stay the night. 2: Don't click the 'join' button unless you are at least 95% sure you're gonna show up. For some weird reason, I tend to expect people who say they'll come to actually do so. Please don't disappoint me needlessly.

And another thing:

I'm quite broke and the whole moving thing is gonna eat up a significant amount of money. I was first thinking of organising some kind of a more 'event-ish' fundraiser benefit whatever with an entry fee and sold drinks, but then I decided that the stress of organising such a thing in combination with the moving preparations would probably give me at least a minor nervous breakdown, so no. I would very much appreciate if you'd consider buying some of the cool stuff that I'm thinking of selling:

Like a roll of my 'der Warst' sticky tape.

Or some really cool handmade Glow in the Dark der Warst T-shirts. (mostly small sizes left, though...)

I might make some kind of super special edition CD until then, as well.

I'll have a Look around what else I can find...

I'd also be open for donations, if you don't want any of my stuff...

So yeah, Love, Simon
