Performances (Sa 31.8.)

  • Analogue utopia – It almost sounds like music – Faubel
  • Andreas Oskar Hirsch / Oliver Jäggi / Urban Bieri

Andreas Oskar Hirsch is a Cologne based musician, visual artist and inventor of electroacoustic instruments. Among others, he performs with the Electric Palm Leaf or the Carbophone, a kind of complex super-kalimba. Both lend themselves to warm downbeat rhythms and odd tonalities. In combination with a bunch of effect pedals Hirsch creates a space somewhere between playful leftfield electronics and freestyle gamelan. Together with Patricia Koellges he runs makiphon, a label for experimental music which also features his latest album Early Carbophonics. For Flick the World he plays the "Schwanden Sessions" togehter with muscians from the SGMK community.
