Club Transmediale - Netlabel Night

CTM09 in Maria, Berlin

Took some time out from working on v[3] of the website with fRED & flux and Toby Harris to check out some of the Club Transmediale activities. The excitement on this particular Tuesday evening was Visual Berlin member Servando Barreiro repping for netaudio.

Mika Vainio @ CTM09 Mika Vainio @ CTM09 Joanie Lemercier's installation at Maria

Before the netaudio [de][uk] show, we caught a little bit of the minimalist set of Mika Vainio. Spent several long moments mesmerized by Joanie Lemercier’s sculptural video installation in the main area. I had been in Berlin back in 2006 when Joanie had first shown off his video mapping skills outside the BCC and in M12 as part of AVIT>C23.

Norman Fairbanks with a Thingamagoop

Headed into the back room at the appointed hour and caught the tail end of Norman Fairbanks’ set. He was busy coaxing sound from a Tenori-On and a Thingamagoop.

Servando Barreiro Dr. Nojoke and J-Lab Servando Barreiro Servando Barreiro's sensor box

Servando was up next alongside Dr. Nojoke and J-Lab under the Netlabel banner. J-Lab played bass and electronics. Dr. Nojoke had a wide variety of sound making devices that he played into a mic and processed heavily. Servando made visuals and further electronic sounds which he manipulated with a homemade sensor box. His “post-music instrument” consisted of a 20 count CD spindle stuffed with a minia board, accelerometers, tap sensors, IR sensors and several potentiometers and switches. The trio worked well together and their performance had a good mix of tight and freeform elements.
