Runzelstirn & Gurgelstøck “At End of Language – Performance Workshop” and Studio Residency

We invited Rudolf aka Runzelstirn & Gurgelstøck (& imported him from japan, where he lives) to do a performance workshop @ WORM. Why? Because we like his audio & visible works and we think he can add a flavour (to...?) that is not available HERE at the moment.
He's currently working in the studio on a radioplay, later to be released on the WORM Horspil Series.

You got  a minute? Listen here to the soundpiece wich was recorded live at his workshop end performance. Made by  Rudolf, Robert Kroos and LG Simonis

picture&sound-update on radiowormstudio projects WORM AT STRP 2010 and STUDIO-SKVR WORKSHOP. RADIOWORM IN VIENNA and Z6 TRIPPLE LAUNCH PARTY

Rotterdam RecordLabel z6 released 3 issues this year: By Huib emmer, LG Simonis/Anne Laberge and the Static Tics.
Here are some picts off the release party at roodkapje

The WORM radio/studiocrew were busy traveling, doing live horspil in linz, brno and vienna (at the MQ and ORF radio). we were especially happy to find out that alan ginsberg is still alive. (in more then 1 entity). Here's the place we played in BRNO, Skena Louka...
And the next morning, David Subik (who organised the concert) and Josef Cseres (who attained) looked like this...

And this was in Vienna, our performance at Museumsquartier...

The final version of the radioplay was done at ORF Kunstradio and broadcasted the same evening. It was very well (live-)mixed by the ORF technicians. And of course, we stupid peasants were flabbergasted by the luxuries of the ORF Radioplay Studio. Except the usual stuff (great mics, 5.1 surround, very expensive looking HD recording gear) the pebbles path was out favorite...

And this is us, looking very relaxed....

A week later, the whole WORM crew to strp fest in eindhoven, where we build a song poem studio...
We made a Radia Network Program about it.  Here's the explanation....


This show consists of a number of songs that were made by the Radio WORM Song Poem Crew at the STRP Festival in Eindhoven (november 2010). The theme was '80ties cassette culture' and the idea was that the audience could choose a genre from a menu, write a text, pay 3 euro's, and then the  Radio WORM Song Poem Crew would make the song with 'original' 80ties gear (the most advanced device being a 4track cassette machine), hence the 'vintage' sound qualities of the pieces. The song was delivered within a short time (5 - 30 minutes) to the client on cassette tape. The available genres on the menu were; Depressing Lo Fi Noise, Boring Art Shit, Early Happy Commodore, Gay Budget Beats, Industrial SM Love Songs, Echoïstic Melancholia Dub, Fucked Up Cassette Hardcore and Incredible Cheap Casio-Pop. There were 19 songs made in a few hours, the best of them you'll find here. Text subjects vary from ode's to leaving colleague's, the impossibilities of having a love affair where one lives in Eindhoven and the other in Amsterdam, Statements about Radio Art, a Monty Cantsin Neoist Song and lots of boring and horrible poetry. Enjoy!

People involved; Lukas Simonis, Henk Bakker, Robert Kroos, Merijn van Ham, Joost Bult, Alexander van Straten, Annemarie Nijhof, Rik Den Dood

Also performed was a testrun of HISS the tapemusical, with live music by: Wouter van Veldhoven - Aki Onda - Tapetronic - Zombies Under Stress
HISSSSS….. - a Cassette Docu Musical Revue
with a.o.: Frans De Waard and many guests. Soundclips of the preformances later to come.

The Home Swinger DIY Workshop door Yuri Landman

The Homeswinger is a twelve string electric instrument with a changing sounds from poignant clock or bell-like sounds by means of an additional movable bridge. The technique is based on the work of Glenn Branca and Sonic Youth's dissonant screwdriver guitar preparations and the theory of Harry Partch who incorporated it in his Kitara instruments.
Landman developed a special tone color scheme that clearly show the theory behind the practice of his predecessors.

The result of the workshop by Yuri Landman will be presented at WORM. The workshop members have composed pieces that they will carry out on their self-built instruments.

And here are the picts to proof it:

Martians go home

We were glad to host this interesting collective from Brussels, who will with the material generated at the studio produce a radioplay for our ongoing Horspil series.


Basshaters 2nd visit

Always good for some interesting sounds and working processes in the studio, the basshaters at it again....



Here's Huib Emmer, doing a final mastering thru the mixing desk of his new and shortly to be released album (on z6 records).
