ORCHIDS das revolutionäre TV Format für das Web !

Man ist sein eigener Kostümbildner, Regisseur, Manager und musikalischer Berater. Man entwickelt eine wirklich faszinierende Showeinlage unter Zuhilfenahme von einigen Requisiten und entblösst sein künstlerisches Innerstes (Talent) vor einem offenen Publikum analog, meist ohne grosse technische Hilfsmittel und im Jetzt. Ob Mann oder Frau, ob Travestie oder Fetisch, alle Themen, die die Bereicherung eines toleranten, weltoffenen Menschen zur Folge haben, sind willkommen. Phänomene, wie “Dr. Sketchy” zeigen, daß man mit der Neuorientierung eines tradierten künstlerischen Standpunktes in der Malerei sogar die Wirtschaft ankurbeln kann und sich auch noch ihrer Mittel bedient, ohne dabei  “unfair” zu werden, sondern ausgesprochen sozial zu bleiben. Molly Crabapple mit ihrem Projekt sei da diese ganz wunderbare Alternative.

Solar X

One of my definitly favoured interviews during RPS Sessions in Berlin was the one with Solar X. I started thinking about my own process of working in between the usage of materials as well as the surroundings and their atmospheric idea. He talks about meeting with Jean Michel Jarre, about his work and his own approach towards making music and publishing his own art. A wonderful person to talk to and to learn from.

JEGA

Jega is just one man, Dylan Nathan, an architecture-school classmate of Richard James (Aphex Twin) and Mike Paradinas (µ-ZIQ). He shares with them many of the same musical concerns, but didn’t get around to releasing his work commercially as quickly as they did. He released his first EP in 1996 on Skam (original home to Boards of Canada), and in 1998 released Spectrum on Paradinas’s Planet µ label (and, later, Matador).

Spectrum was a jarring view across the landscape of electronic music, more rollercoaster than Sunday drive, resulting in the cloying label “drill n bass.” In contrast, Geometry flows smoothly and more melodically from vista to vista, merging staccato 808 rhythmic workouts, digital swing, analog atmospherics, jittery electro-hop, and myriad other sounds into a dark and rather melancholy work.

Unlike Spectrum, Geometry will be released simultaneously worldwide, and Jega will be making numerous visits to the US for live appearances throughout the year. Dylan is also a licensed pilot, BMX fanatic, computer hacker, and a professional animator, currently working on a computer-animated video for the title track.
