DER TAPEMAN (berlin)


Helge Neidhardt aka Der Tapeman has fought the noise war since the late 80s when he played guitar in the noise rock band Knochen=girl. There he also started to use pre-produced tapes as the most effective way to make sound, with Boyd Rice and William S. Burroughs as his main influences. In the early 90s he started to perform solo, using the name Der Tapeman and wearing a mask for his performances. In 2005 he stopped performing for a few years to run a venue in Berlin, which soon became a well known place for experimental music, featuring concerts from Mika Vainio, Z'EV and KK Null.
Der Tapeman is one of the longest running noise acts in Berlin, but still remains an insider tip. He has performed hundreds of times, usually facing an audience that doesn't want to see the show. Making noise and fooling around with tape recorders is just what he does.






Parabelles sind Ute Waldhausen und Doreen Kutzke. Sie spielen seit Ende der 90er Jahre innerhalb und ausserhalb des Universums Shows, meistens in Berlin, Leipzig und Los Angeles.
“Die Parabelles sind sich selber immer einen Schritt voraus. Das macht sie so unverwechselbar. Sie spielen nie zu lang und geben keine Zugaben.”




JOKE LANZ (berlin) sonic interventions

Born 1965 in Basel, Switzerland. Currently based in Berlin.
Joke Lanz is one of the most prolific and profound artists working in the border zones where performance and body art meet Improvisation and Noise. 
In his Sudden Infant guise, Lanz creates a unique blend of physical sound poetry and epileptic noise bursts, using contact microphones, loops, tapes etc. The result is an extreme form of musique concrète that juxtaposes spasmodic gibbering with a battery of disorienting electronics.
Has worked as garbageman, cleaner, caregiver, night watchman, farmer, record dealer, administrative assistant, bike messenger, chocolate manufacturer, technician, housekeeper, and more. Free studies in Performance Art, Noise music, Turntablism.
Since 1985 involved with a broad variety of musical projects, such as: Jaywalker, Sudden Infant, Schimpfluch-Gruppe, Psychic Rally, Vehikel & Gefäss, Catholic Boys in Heavy Leather, WAL, and Tell.
Composed music for contemporary dance, theatre, films, radio plays, and installations.
