Freitag, 10.6.2011, ab 21:00 Uhr: Klirrbar! Mit B°TONG & BUCKETTOVSISSORS
Chris Sigdell is an experimental electronic musician. He developed a soft spot for early industrial textures and pioneering ambient soundscapes while cutting his teeth in cult industrial band NID (1995-2005). A mysterious and shadowy figure he has ended up assembling sounds of such chilling creepiness that it makes Aphex Twin’s Selected Ambient Works Vol. 2 sound like a collection of sugar-coated lullabies. The sound of B°TONG feels a lot like an agonizingly slow crawl through a dark tunnel where the dim light at the other end never gets closer.
B°TONG builds an interesting body of work that moves in various directions at the same time. From dealings with ambient and isolationism on one hand and experimental music, ranging from the soft microsound end to the more engaging noise end, in a clever combination of ideas…
Since 2005 he’s played more than 100 concerts all over Europe and North America and appeared at electronic and industrial festivals such as: Ausklang (Hamburg), Sinus Series (Basel) , Shift (Basel), and Lab 30 (Augsburg). He’s released 10 albums on labels like: Verato Project (DE), Noecho Records (UK) Gears Of Sand (USA).

„A blown-out, futuristic urban landscape. Whatever Goodman is using to create his sounds: synths, field recordings, turntables, one can only speculate, but what he achieves in this music is really interesting, a world of machines in control, listened to in a certain frame even the titles then could be said to be satirical through those eyes. „The Enlightened Man“ has finally „found himself“ at a time where he can do least in response to his enlightenment, therefore it’s still a world of alienation, helplessness, slavery-and that is exactly how this music sounds. Excellent metaphorical noise!“
P.S.: ‚Hering und seine sieben Sachen‘ canceled 🙁 maybe another time.
