Guillaume Coutu Dumont, a native Montrealer who has recently moved to Berlin, began the decade as a fixture in the local community of upstarts who gathered around the first few MUTEKs. His first recordings as part of the leftfield micro-house duo EGG (with Julien Roy, who has since moved on to Artificiel) began to crop up in 2003, and they bore the strong influence of Akufen’s micro-sampling techniques, an aesthetic that had resonated with a number of young French-Quebecois producers at that time.
Baraka (1992) directed by Ron Fricke Baraka is an ancient Arabic word, which can be translated as “a blessing, or as the breath, or essence of life from which the evolutionary process unfolds.” The movie was filmed at 152 locations of 24 countries: Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Cambodia, China, Ecuador, Egypt, France, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Iran, Israel, Italy, Japan, Kenya, Kuwait, Nepal, Poland, Saudi Arabia, Tanzania, Thailand, Turkey, and the United States. It contains no dialogue. Instead of a story or plot, the film uses themes to present new perspectives and evoke emotion purely through cinema. The film was the first in over twenty years to be photographed in the 70mm Todd-AO format. Fricke writes about his work: “I feel that my work has evolved through Koyaanisqatsi, Chronos and Baraka. Both technically and philosophically I am ready to delve even deeper into my favorite theme: humanity’s relationship to the eternal”.

“When we first started thinking about the compilation, we had in mind the idea to put together a great minimal techno selection with stuff from the early 90s, which really inspired us, like Robert Hood, Dan Bell, Plastikman, Pansonic and Mike Ink to name a few. Whilst working on the project we had the feeling that there is so much more great and influential minimal music from way before the techno thing started.”
Va prezentam un release scos la Medicine Label in ’98, acesta este dovada clara a unui sound recreativ in care liniile de bass se coreleaza perfect cu synth-urile spectrale. Cursivitatea matematica aparte genereaza un sound multiform in care ritmurile de dub se suprapun perfect peste stringurile ultra finisate de deep house.
Va invitam joi 30 aprilie 2009, orele 19.00 – 21.00, la un deschiderea expozitiei

“In razboi nu exista victime inocente. Nici macar simplu complice nu te poti considera in cazul participarii la razboi pentru ca a depins de mine, ca pentru mine si prin mine, acest razboi sa nu existe iar eu am hotarit ca el exista… Cel care participa la razboi s-ar fi putut sustrage prin sinucidere sau dezertare. Nici razboiul si nici torturile nu sunt inumane… Inumanul este hotarit numai de om prin frica, fuga sau apel la magie…” (Jean-Paul Sartre).

This is what Bogdan‘s girlfriend told me a couple of hours before his debut performance. We were at The Ark, in the rocking pre-hours of the second Rokolectiv day and, except for the crew and a couple of artists, there was nobody else around. It was still early, but that wasn’t a problem. We knew that true party people only come out at night.
