\\\\ KETTEL ////
Reimer Eising aka Kettel (1982) from Holland, classically schooled
pianist, has been a busy man since his first 7” record on the legendary
Planet Mu label in 2003.
Passing by labels like Kracfive, Neo Ouija and Clone, Kettel is now an established IDM household name.
In a genre that is rather to die than to live, he undoubtedly keeps his
head up with recent tours in Japan, the USA and all over Europe.
Kettel is probably most known for his striking Depeche Mode and Dash
Berlin remixes and the Through Friendly Waters (2005) album that was
topcharting in Japan.
The Kettel liveshow recipe may differ a little from his releases, but also finds melody as the biggest foundation of his brews.
Apart from that, there will be tougher beats, tougher acid and a sample from an elephant.
Recent liveshows on the Monegros Festival in Spain, various shows in
Berlin (accompanying Plaid) have proven Kettel isn’t merely working in
the head, but also on the dancefloor.
Yeeehaw!

\\\\ SECEDE ////
While most kids his age were probably out there doing Ruud Gullit impersonations on the streets,
Len was experimenting with samplers and skycraper-sized computers noisier than an overheating Boeing 777-engine.
Now, 17 years later almost, it takes little to tell this guy grew up
with electronic music: his natural and intuitive way of dealing with it
is gaining recognition all over the place.
Len’s music is conscientiously produced electronic music with a
definite musical, cinematographical feel all over it, but it can go
everywhere: he’s fluent in an abundance of styles and moods.
Be it phantasmagorical opuses for weddings of the future or apocalyptic
rhythmscapes that will shake the ground, anything’s possible.
On his liveshow you never know what you’re gonna get, but you just know
it’s going to take your mind off the current world for a second.

\\\\ AMOS ////
AMOS will present his newest audio visual project - “THE WINTER WILL
NOT LAST FOREVER”, which explores the concept of hope as neomodernist
practice in the desert of the real.

\\\\ ANNI HOGAN & ROB STRACHAN ////

Producer, collaborator, DJ and writer Anni Hogan first came to prominence as a musician in Marc Almond’s Marc and the Mambas.
Hogan would continue to work closely with Almond until the early 1990s as a writer, arranger, performer and producer.
Among many current projects, her compositions with Robert Strachan are
particularly striking; micro-constructions and piano melodies blended
into profound and beautiful new shapes.
Such experimentation underscores much of Strachan’s recent work,
which included the stunning improvised soundtrack to accompany ‘Blue
Remix’- a performance by the Swiss artist Yann Marussich as part of the
sk:interfaces exhibition at FACT.

DING>>D0NG:m-Log workshop last chance!

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: 

mlogkit

WORKSHOP Friday 13th February 2008 6pm

The Box, FACT, 88 Wood Street Liverpool L1 4DQ

£175* *price includes workshop & materials

:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

m-Log Kit

Purchase an mLog kit and you get a full days workshop and all the
materials needed to build & customise an m-Log to your own spec!

m-Log is the latest development in Owl Project Technology; a powered
USB controller interface. The m-Log fits in the palm of the hand and is
made using this semicircular cross section of a branch (Just like the
iLog). Inside the m-Log is the muio interface ( www.muio.org ).

Available with a rage of built in sensor inputs (light sensors,
accelerometers etc) it has plug in and play compatibility with a wide
variety of applications, notably MAX MSP/jitter, SuperCollider and Open
Frameworks.

m-Log owners currently include, Leafcutter John, Kaffe Matthews and
Thor Magnusson (IXI software) who were also involved during its initial
development. Get your saw* and soldering iron ready and join a
community of owners and start developing and sharing your own patches
to use on one of the worlds rarest digital interfaces.

During a one day session participants will be taken through
constructing an mLog circuit, drilling the holes for the switches,
building software audio instruments in SuperCollider and MAX MSP and
finally a little sanding and oiling.

Using minimal amounts of electronics combined with the simple and
flexible material of wood we aim to return a sense of the of craft and
individuality to the production of modern hand held technology. We look
forward to making and developing m-Logs with you.

* In the kit all wood will be pre cut and ready for assembly.
