CTM this week

OK, I'm posting this a couple of days late and I sincerely hope that you didn't miss Sleigh Bells at Festsaal yesterday because of this. Here are my picks for this week:

Tuesday to Saturday
Regenwald 2011 at West Germany: This is a contemporary re-interpretation of David Tudor’s series of compositions from the 1970s entitled “Rainforest” but it's also inspired by the work of John Cage. I got a preview at the Gay Beast gig. All the objects used in the installation have been found out in the street and have been enhanced with sound features. The opening is tonight and then, it's on for the remainder of the week from 6pm in the evening. (free entry)

Tuesday to Sunday
Cinechamber at HAU2: A video project installation that among other things includes a moving floor and high-standard electronic sounds. A surprise live performance is expected at 6pm on Sunday. At 8:30pm on Sunday, there will be a grande finale with a live performance by Scion and Paul St. Hilaire. (€7)

Wednesday to Sunday
Loud Luggage/Booming Luggage at West Germany: members of experimental group The Haters will perform music with amplified suitcases every night at midnight from tomorrow until the end of the week. Sounds interesting. (€5)

Deconstructing Dad (film) at HAU1: A film about the musical legacy of Raymond Scott. His son will be there for post-film conversation. (€12)

KTL at Festsaal Kreuzberg: Sunn O))) fans pay attention - this is the man's other project. They once played in support of The Locust and I honestly wasn't particularly impressed. But years have passed and I guess this drone experiment should be given another chance. Then again, I'm not big on Sunn O))) either. Difficult one. (€15)
MIT, Goldpanda and others at Maria: danceable genres are combined to get your feet moving on Friday - Post-Punk, No Wave and electronics. (€18)

Zombie Zombie plays John Carpenter at Festsaal Kreuzberg: This is the must-be event at this year's CTM I reckon. French Disco = süper. John Carpenter = god of some sort. Together? Oh boy. Extrem dance action - who needs to go to aerobic this week when you can go dance at Festsaal? (€15)

Full Blast at HAU1: Free Jazz and Noise on a Sunday night, 5 mins from my house. Yum. (€13-18)
