Because the organisers of the Maze festival at West Germany are the coolest people, we have been able to get a quick update from them on how the first days of the two-week-event have been going. It is such an exciting project, which we wholeheartedly support, so go on over and have a look. Here is what organiser Grinni had to say on the initial days:
"First days of the MAZE were as diverse at it
can get! People self-directing their way through a labyrinth of
woven strings and sonic experiments:
From the clash of the opening with Diamond Terrifier's meditative
otherworldly saxophone performance to the fragile and intense
dream-pop of Sean Nicholas Savage to Gandoola oond Krapoola's
Sickotheke aka crawling on the floor with turntables. Sunday
continued with a spiritual cleansing and enlightening performance
by Jimmy Trash & Professor Mugglestone, where audience
-one-by-one - going thru stages yet intimate, disgusting,
confusing, teaching and comforting, set to encounter a purified
self. On to Jim Avignon's Monday of weird electronic anti folk.
Tuesday ending the first part of the MAZE with a challenging night
of instrumental solo and group performances by Axel Dörner, Olaf
Rupp, Jan Roder, Oli Steidle, Carlos Giuffoni."
We are so privileged to have this happening in our town. Yeah!
BTW, also check out the little preview that Noisey ran last week. It will give a brief overview of the idea behind the festival.
