Aphex Twin at Funkhaus, Berlin (1st November 2018)


Recommended Posts

 

Aphex Twin will perform at Funkhaus in Berlin on Thursday, November 1st. 

 
Richard D. James announced his first Berlin gig in 15 years via Twitter this morning. It'll go down at Funkhaus, a former GDR radio broadcasting centre that mostly hosts large, high-profile events. There will be a show at 8 PM, when James will be joined by a "special guest," and an afterparty at 11 PM, all in the same complex.

Was a pretty hard set with a lot of weird mixing sometimes lol. I'm currently reconstructing and re-recording the mix for my own pleasure and of course for the people who couldn't attend. Not all trac

Sold!

 

Ticket cost really isn't that steep compared to some other shows (e.g. Kraftwerk tkts are €90, Bonobo and Jon Hopkins are £50 each).

 

The cost of concert tickets nowadays is crazy. Guess it's the main income stream now that a large number of people subscribe to streaming services and don't fork out for pressed lumps of wax in colourful sleeves.

The price is an infamy, hope the audio engineers will at least do their job this time, at MIRA Festival me and my friends had to leave every concert after 10 minutes with earache, Funkhaus Berlin is getting more and more unappealing. It's so sad because it's an amazing location, but staff is very unfriendly as well and drinks are overly expensive. Look at the shitstorm in the facebook event. This makes me mad as hell. Why not play Berghain or another location? Good I already saw AFX in Holland some years ago...

Autechre cost me 20€ 2 years ago if I remember correctly, perhaps less. I think they will just set the highest price they believe they can get away with

It cost me £50 to see Aphex at Field Day last year with a load of other artists, but the idea that the price of this show is somehow extortionate when compared with many other big concerts these days is ill-founded.

 

Don't get me wrong, it definitely isn't cheap, but not completely unreasonable either in terms of today's market.

 

I hope the after-party is good. Will that be in the same venue?

 

Any ideas who the special guest will be?

My GF just bought us a couple of tickets as a B-Day present! I’ve been lucky enough to open for SP and Mike P a while ago but never succeeded in attending a RDJ gig: braindance bucketlist completed. See you there WATMMers !

 

Ps: so happy to fly to Berlin again, I just love that city. Funkhaus seems to be an amazing venue.

      Coming soon on ROHS! RECORDS (4th December 2020)
      https://rohsrecords.bandcamp.com
      NEW NOYZELAB Album "CPMSubtree" audio will follow soon
       
      Noyzelab is David Burraston - or is it that David Burraston is Noyzelab? After experiencing the man's work, you may not be able to tell the difference. Noyzelab's debut at ROHS! is a surrounding and otherworldly album called CPMSubtree, made up of five surreal displays of studio electronics that elasticize the album's forty-minute runtime into unfathomable stretches of displacement. 
      Currently residing in Australia, Burraston has spent many years refining his focus in many different departments - lectures and residencies around the world, collaborations with Aphex Twin, Chris Watson, Oren Ambarchi and Russell Haswell, recordings published at Important Records, Taiga, .MEDS, Cataclyst and Psoma Psi Phi, and installations assembled in dozens of indoor and outdoor spaces. He has built his own synthesizers and has written his PhD thesis on Generative Music & Cellular Automata, working to explore and document his research with generative systems, computing and all kinds of synthesis. On top of all of these things, he's often found with portable recording rigs, doing field recording to capture exotic and interesting atmospheres. 
      CPMSubtree is, at least in name, a follow-up to TTMSubtree, a cassette issued at Psoma Psi Phi in 2017, although the sounds presented here are wholly unique, in their own macroverse of existence. When listening to Burraston's music, you can never be quite sure what it is you're hearing or feeling - is that a sinewave, or feedback? Are those bells or a DX7? Is that a gust of Cootamundra wind on the mic, or algorithmically processed white noise? Are we frozen in space while otherworldly spectrums of color billow around us at light speed, or are we being poured down a waterfall, one molecule at a time, to coalesce into a pool of pulsing fluorescence? You might ask yourself any or all of these questions - but Noyzelab does not provide any answers. This is a one-way trip that you can't come back from, so proceed at your own discretion! For those of us eager to map the frontier of new and stimulating electronic music, the unknown has never been quite so rewarding. 
      NOTE: Noyzelab recordings utilize the full breadth of the frequency spectrum, and as such, are best experienced with either headphones or speaker systems that can yield very high and very low frequencies without issue. Lossless file formats are also encouraged, to minimize the reduction of these frequencies and their presence within the recordings.

      Hi,
      I have a complete Analord binder (binder and records in mint condition) that I’ve owned from new since release. The binder was ordered direct via Rephlex’s website and the records from bleep.com as they were released. I haven’t played them and they’ve been in storage since buying. I’m getting more into buying synths/hardware and making my own music now and was wondering if anyone would be interested in a swap for their old/unwanted synth hardware.
      Ideally, and maybe in my dream world 🙂 ,I’d like a Roland JX3P or SH101, but would consider any sensible offers of analogue or digital gear. Also I live in England near to Folkestone in Kent so would prefer to trade with someone in London/South East so we could physically meet and exchange the items.
      If this of interest to anyone then drop me a message. Can provide pics etc to confirm condition.
