FB EVENT

ANGEL, a collaboration between Ilpo Väisänen (Pan sonic) and Dirk Dresselhaus (Schneider TM), is by now an institution in noise music and drones. For twenty years, the duo has explored the depths of concrete noise and grinding sound, their sound evoking associations with grand natural phenomena. No wonder, then, that in reviews of ANGEL – later known as DIE ANGEL – oceans, deserts, canyons and earthquakes are repeatedly used as metaphors.

Väisänen and Dresselhaus have, in the meantime, played an undeniably large part in the fact Drone music has matured into an independent genre. For DIE ANGEL, noise and musical action are means of communication, and music an open process, so instead of withdrawing into their unity, they’ve always sought artistic exchange with others. Thus, it is only logical the internationally renowned musicians would invite distinguished guests to celebrate their twentieth anniversary. These musicians each contributed to three ANGEL albums released by Editions Mego between 2007 and 2014: Hildur Guðnadóttir, Oren Ambarchi, Lucio Capece & BJ Nilsen.

In an exclusive celebration of DIE ANGEL’s 20th anniversary, the six musicians will share the stage, making it a world premiere.
Hildur Guðnadóttir, best known as a cellist and singer, has in recent years composed for theatre, dance and film (e.g. “Arrival”, “The Revenant”, “Sicario: Day of the Soldadound”), while Oren Ambarchi moves between new music and experimental rock. BJ Nilsen, the Swedish sound artist based in Amsterdam, deals mainly with field recordings, environmental sounds and their effects on people, and Lucio Capece was active for many years in the context of Berlin Echtzeitmusik, releasing 30 works on labels such as Pan, Another Timbre, Entr ́acte and Potlatch.

The improvisational music project DIE ANGEL creates instant compositions through communication with sound, its music generated by various sound sources, instruments and objects such as modular synthesizers, guitars, cello, bass clarinet, field recordings and everyday objects. For this joint concert with their four guests, Ilpo Väisänen and Dirk Dresselhaus will intuitively further develop and reinterpret the sound material created between 2006 and 2010.

CD available at: Oral Records

Hildur & Schneider met in 2004 in Berlin’s partyzone and found out they were both living in the same neighbourhood. Soon the idea came up to do some music together. One fine day Hildur came over to Schneider’s house/studio and brought her cello. Before they even started talking or drinking coffee, the track my favourite caucus airchamber was recorded. After that they met occasionally to play some game of bowls in the park or have one or two drinks together. A couple of weeks later the second track inspired by a common love of Sun Ra music (don’t give up, what is death?) was recorded just like the first one…but this time she also brought her zither, accordion and saw…. no talking, no specific ideas, no direction: just Hildur playing over and over the acoustic instruments and Schneider processing them live on his mixing-desk. A couple of weeks later Hildur moved back to Iceland to finish her electro acoustic studies and Schneider visited some jail to work on German gangster-rap with some prisoners. When Hildur came back to Berlin to join Angel for their drone-set in October 2004 at Club Transmediale, the time was right to record the track not all crows are black. Then, one afternoon, the Schmucks appeared at Schneider’s studio, but this is another story…
