About the event

Not of This World” is not only a very plausible name for an album, such as KIRLIAN CAMERA’s best-of album released in late 2010; but also a good description of the show the band put up on April, 29 in a wonderful VIVA MUSIC event in Club Control, with a very artful preface from TANZ OHNE MUSIK. An otherworldly performance brought to you by Angelo Bergamini, Elena Fossi, Lexi Chevalier and Kyoo Nam Rossi kept the avid audience enthralled for almost two hours!

The festive atmosphere of the Labor Day weekend and the opening of the summer season were celebrated by VIVA MUSIC with a great event: the legendary KIRLIAN CAMERA for their first Romanian date. While their 30-year history on the scene of music requires little if any introduction, let it be said that the atmospheric music they perform is vivid, energetic and empathetic – qualities that were appreciated by the audience as well.

Tanz Ohne Musik @Control Club 29.04.2011 promoter: Viva Music – Review

The evening was opened spot-on by Dan Serbanescu’s newest project, TANZ OHNE MUSIK. A spoiled sibling of Divine Muzak and the Pixels, TANZ OHNE MUSIK goes on stage as Dan Serbanescu and Vali Chincisan (the latter regrettably absent on the night of 29-Apr, but successfully delegating to Color Nurse, who provided along Chincisan’s art her own). An experimental & ambient project, TANZ adds up to a very sincere visual experience coupled with music you have no other option than to listen to; and dance to. TANZ OHNE MUSIK went on the stage of Control Club alone so many times that it would certainly be not a mistake to call the act a club protégé and definitely one of the most vibrant and viral acts of the Bucharest club scene of 2011.

The audience, a mixed TANZ OHNE MUSIK posse and the usual novices all pricked their ears to the show and danced along with great zest; and the response was unanimously positive, a sign we at VIVA MUSIC are glad to have seen, since we rely greatly on the local scene and wish to be able to promote it further through events, online promotion and album and tour deals. Let it only be reminded that a similarly portentous act, BRAZDA LUI NOVAC, chosen by VIVA MUSIC for the opening of the COVENANT concert was positively received by COVENANT’s Daniel Myer and subsequently invited to his event PLANET MYER in January 2011.

What TANZ OHNE MUSIK brought to Club Control was a definite, well-imprinted feeling that music can equally be sound and color, and that the pairing thereof is a feast, one of the shapes assumed by darkness and of fragile, but convincing sounds.

Kirlian Camera @Control Club 29.04.2011 promoter: Viva Music -Review

The elegant warmup provided by TANZ OHNE MUSIK was done justice to, royally, by KIRLIAN CAMERA’s concert. A sensational stage entrance, with eerie music and hooded characters who light up their faces with flashlights, was greeted by the audience and the ensuing two hours were a peerless direction of energies, voices, instrument and cadence – a killer combination you would want to witness in any electronica/darkwave performance – all in a rendition with a very personal touch of Brahms’ “Ein Deutsches Requiem”.

The show was really momentous, and it kept the audience on the thin line between tension and release – both instances of energy flowing and being recaptured in a very sensuous and respectful exchange. While there was no doubt of the band’s magnitude and astuteness on stage, their ensuing unchained and at the same time choreographed disruptions being a well-credited self-reverential tribute to their career, one in which the very sound setlist offered great variety and great musicianship: from their earliest to their latest, all the stages of creation that mean KIRLIAN CAMERA were under the dim spotlight and were offered equal opportunities to seduce, animate and create a critical mass in the audience.

Early KIRILIAN CAMERA opus extracts, such as the rarely performed live “Edges”, “Blue Room” and “In the Endless Rain” vied for attention with newer KIRLIAN CAMERA productions such as “Odyssey Europa”, “Europa Drama Orbit” and “K-Pax”, as well as with cameo appearances from Pink Floyd’s “Comfortably Numb”, majestically covered by KIRLIAN CAMERA, as well as from Ultravox’s “Hymn”, pious renditions to a common musical past that shapes up in many ways the way we listen to music nowadays. A very complex setlist, the one put on by KIRLIAN CAMERA in Club Control also meant a review of the band’s history at the speed of light.

One important fact to be kept in mind about their performance is that not all musicians on stage have witnessed the three decades of activity subsumed to the name of KIRLIAN CAMERA. Their rendition, therefore, did not betray one bit their lack of familiarity or remote conduciveness of material prior to their embarking on the KIRLIAN CAMERA boat. In fact, the band members’ personalities added flavor to the album recordings and to a certain extent revitalized the historical context of so many genres that shaped up their music: from the disco contingent to the darkwave vein, the show allowed to the audience a wide span of melodic interferences that make KIRLIAN CAMERA in itself unique and their show one of relentless dedication to quality and meaningfulness.

Even if the audience was fomented by the classical alliance of club regulars, KIRLIAN CAMERA fans and VIVA MUSIC events’ already solid and faithful clique, KIRLIAN CAMERA cast upon the audience a unifying trait: that of people who are in constant touch with their emotions and are able to shine them through layers of unaltered humanity and humaneness, the kind you would expect from a divine visitation or a preaching pontificate.

To Angelo Bergamini’s demure and guiding presence, the outgoing and valiant pose of Elena Fossi acted as a well-deserved complement. Elena’s restlessness was not at all gratuitous, she moved along to the multitude of beats befriending each of them with a twist or turn of her body, knowingly engaged in the production of each new sensation and new rhythm, keeping the audience captive with her voice. The final set of the show before the generous encores, including “Blue Room”, “Eclipse” and “Odyssey Europa” were a dramatic climax of Fossi’s abilities as a versatile artist, and literally swept over the audience. Note should also be made of the fine wizardry Lexi Chevalier and Kyoo Nam Rossi stirred with their very good command of instrument, stealing the same animated applause from the audience.

KIRLIAN CAMERA + TANZ OHNE MUSIK in Control Club, April 29, 2011

An ELECTRONIK (www.electronik.ro) event, promoted by VIVA MUSIC

(English version, scroll pentru versiunea in limba romana)

Take a photo of your soul with Kirlian Camera and Tanz Ohne Musik on April, 29, in an ELECTRONIK event promoted by VIVA MUSIC with support from CONTROL CLUB!

KIRLIAN CAMERA, a band that stands witness to the times we live in, takes an active and creative role in the metamorphoses of Italian pop into the genre of darkwave. For the first time in Romania, KIRLIAN CAMERA propose a show that fuses avant-garde and underground, with an opening from the most viral act of the club scene of the moment,  TANZ OHNE MUSIK.

In their thirty years of activity, KIRLIAN CAMERA got into every nook and corner of music, adding in the process defining marks to their style. With an unflinching belief in eclecticism as a motor of creativity, the music of KIRLIAN CAMERA was nourished by numerous collaborations, explorations of diverse styles, and the addition to their portfolio of several projects, among which we enumerate SEPULCRUM DEI, ALIEN MARTYR, STALINGRAD, SIDERARTICA or SPECTRA PARIS. At the same time, KIRLIAN CAMERA provided the musical score for art and experimental movies such as ”I ragazzi di Torino sognano Tokyo e vanno a Berlino”, ”Gli Anni Trenta” or ”Cosa c’entra con l’amore”.

The name of KIRLIAN CAMERA is very appropriate for the band. Inspired by the interest the band’s founder, Angelo Bergamini nurtured for metaphysics and occultism in the eve of the 1980’s, the name refers to the technique discovered by Semyon Kirlian, following a demonstration from the celebrated Nikola Tesla, that of phonograms exposed to high voltage energy. The photographs taken through the mere exposure of photographic film to electricity resembled angelic presences and created a sort of aura of the models: true photos of the soul, just like the music of KIRLIAN CAMERA, which proposes at the same time profoundness and delicacy, all wrapped up in an atmosphere in which each and everyone can bring their contribution through their own feelings.

The concert will be opened by the Romanian act TANZ OHNE MUSIK, a project by Dan Serbanescu (The Pixels, Divine Muzak) with visuals by Vali Chincisan. Dan will set up a tripod of atmosphere in Control Club, captivating sounds and lights on which KIRLIAN CAMERA will lay the camera and take photos of an ecstatic audience.

VIVA MUSIC’s ELECTRONIK concerts include to date MELOTRON (January 2009) and COVENANT (April 2010) concerts. They blend in perfectly with DARKWAVE.RO fests (February 2009, October 2010, January 2011) and other concerts from the same palette, such as COMBICHRIST+MORTIIS (March 2010).

Tickets cost 20 ron (presale) and 25 ron (at the venue) and can be bought online on www.myticket.ro, and www.ticketpoint.ro, as well as from Diverta, Muzica and Sala Palatului stores.

KIRLIAN CAMERA + TANZ OHNE MUSIK in Club Control, 29 aprilie 2011

Eveniment organizat de VIVA MUSIC cu sprijinul CONTROL CLUB

sub marca ELECTRONIK (www.electronik.ro)

Fotografiati-va sufletul cu Kirlian Camera si Tanz Ohne Musik pe 29 aprilie 2011 intr-un eveniment organizat de VIVA MUSIC cu sprijinul CONTROL CLUB!

KIRLIAN CAMERA, o formatie-document a vremurilor noastre, a participat activ si creativ la metamorfozele popului italian in genul darkwave-ului. Aflati pentru prima oara in Romania, KIRLIAN CAMERA va propun un spectacol in care vor fuziona avantgarde-ul si underground-ul intr-un festin muzical in deschiderea caruia veti avea ocazia sa participati la cel mai viral fenomen muzical de club al momentului, TANZ OHNE MUSIK.

In cei 30 de ani de activitate muzicala, KIRLIAN CAMERA au patruns in toate ungherele muzicii adaugand marci definitorii stilului lor. Cu o credinta neclintita in eclectism muzical ca motor al creativitatii, muzica KIRLIAN CAMERA s-a hranit din multiple colaborari, explorari de stiluri diverse si adaugarea la portofoliul muzical a multor proiecte, dintre care amintim SEPULCRUM DEI, ALIEN MARTYR, STALINGRAD, SIDERARTICA sau SPECTRA PARIS. Totodata, KIRLIAN CAMERA au furnizat muzica pentru filme artistice si experimentale precum ”I ragazzi di Torino sognano Tokyo e vanno a Berlino”, ”Gli Anni Trenta” sau ”Cosa c’entra con l’amore”.

Numele de KIRLIAN CAMERA este unul cat se poate de potrivit pentru formatie. Inspirat de interesul pentru metafizica si ocultism pe care fondatorul formatiei, Angelo Bergamini, si l-a cultivat la inceputul anilor 1980, acesta se refera la descoperirea facuta de Semyon Kirlian in urma unei demonstratii facute de celebrul Nikola Tesla, prin care a realizat fotograme prin expunere la inalta frecventa energetica. Fotografiile realizate prin simpla expunere a filmului fotografic la curent electric semanau cu prezente angelice si creau o aura a modelelor: adevarate fotografii ale sufletului, la fel ca si muzica KIRLIAN CAMERA, care propune in acelasi timp profunzime si delicatete, totul intr-o atmosfera la care fiecare participant isi aduce contributia prin propriile trairi.

Concertul va fi prefatat muzical de proiectul TANZ OHNE MUSIK al lui Dan Serbanescu (The Pixels, Divine Muzak), cu visuals marca Vali Chincisan. Dan va construi in Club Control un tripod de atmosfera, sunet captivant si joc de lumina pe care sa-si aseze gratios KIRLIAN CAMERA aparatul foto prin care isi propun sa imortalizeze un public in delir.

Seria de concerte VIVA MUSIC sub marca ELECTRONIK include pana in prezent concertele MELOTRON (ianuarie 2009) si COVENANT (aprilie 2010). Acestea completeaza perfect festivalurile DARKWAVE.RO (februarie 2009, octombrie 2010, octombrie 2011) si celelalte evenimente din aceeasi paleta, precum concertul COMBICHRIST+MORTIIS (martie 2010).

Biletele costa 20 ron (in presale) si 25 ron (in ziua evenimentului) si pot fi cumparate online de pe www.myticket.ro, www.ticketpoint.ro, precum si in magazinele Diverta, Muzica si Sala Palatului.

KIRLIAN CAMERA + TANZ OHNE MUSIK in Club Control, 29 aprilie 2011

Eveniment organizat de VIVA MUSIC cu sprijinul CONTROL CLUB

sub marca ELECTRONIK (www.electronik.ro)

 

VIVA MUSIC continua seria de evenimente sub marca ELECTRONIK cu un concert fulminant pe data de 29 aprilie 2011, in Club Control (St. Academiei nr. 19) cu legenda KIRLIAN CAMERA. In deschidere, TANZ OHNE MUSIK, proiectul electro cel mai viral al momentului pe plaiurile mioritice.

 

[scroll for English version]

KIRLIAN CAMERA, prima trupa italiana care a semnat cu ravnita casa de discuri Virgin, se va afla pentru prima oara in Romania, iar concertul din Club Control va fi o explozie de darkwave fuzionat cu synthpop, in deja celebra maniera pe care membrii formatiei au brevetat-o in istoria muzicii. Un punct focal al istoriei darkwave, activitatea KIRLIAN CAMERA este un periplu muzical de lunga durata: de la primul lor mini-EP si pana in prezent, Angelo Bergamini si colegii sai de trupa nu au intrerupt niciodata activitatea si au surprins intr-un mod propriu evolutia scenei si tehnicii muzicale in peste 20 de albume si cateva sute de aparitii live.

 

Alaturi de Angelo se afla Elena Fossi, solista trupei SPECTRA PARIS, la randul sau un proiect rafinat si sexy care da valoare adaugata scenei printr-un line-up feminin de ‘dead models society’ cu aptitudini de ‘young ladies homicide club’, ca sa citam din numele albumelor formatiei. Concertele KIRLIAN CAMERA sunt un val de energii exprimate prin instrumentatie alerta si subtila si prin exercitii vocale de exceptie in toate graiurile pamantului, ca un manifest poliglot pentru mesaje cu appeal pentru toate generatiile.

 

Concertul va fi prefatat muzical de proiectul TANZ OHNE MUSIK al lui Dan Serbanescu (The Pixels, Divine Muzak), cu visuals marca Vali Chincisan. Dan va construi in Club Control un tripod de atmosfera, sunet captivant si joc de lumina pe care sa-si aseze gratios KIRLIAN CAMERA aparatul foto prin care isi propun sa imortalizeze un public in delir.

KIRLIAN CAMERA + TANZ OHNE MUSIK in Control Club, April 29, 2011

An ELECTRONIK (www.electronik.ro) event, promoted by VIVA MUSIC

 

VIVA MUSIC continues the series of events under ELECTRONIK with a sizzling concert on April 29 in Control Club (19, Academiei St.) with the darkwave legend, KIRLIAN CAMERA and TANZ OHNE MUSIK, Romania’s most viral electro act of the moment.

 

KIRLIAN CAMERA, the first Italian band to be signed by coveted Virgin records, is on their first Romanian date, and their Romanian concert will be a literal explosion of darkwave mixed with synthpop, in the already renowned signature sound that the band patented in the history of music. A focal point of darkwave history, the activity of KIRLIAN CAMERA is a musical excursion of many years: from their first mini album to date, Angelo Bergamini and his band mates have never desisted and always managed to capture the scene and music technology with a personal twist in more than 20 albums and several hundreds of live dates.

 

Next to Angelo is Elena Fossi, also the frontwoman of SPECTRA PARIS, which is a refined and sexy project that adds value to the scene through an all-female lineup of ‘dead model society’ with ‘young ladies homicide club’ skills, to quote album names from their act. KIRLIAN CAMERA concerts are an energetic wave expressed via alert and subtle instrument and exceptional vocal exercise in all languages on Earth, as a polyglot manifesto for messages that appeal to all generations.

 

The concert will be opened by the Romanian act TANZ OHNE MUSIK, a project by Dan Serbanescu (The Pixels, Divine Muzak) with visuals by Vali Chincisan. Dan will set up a tripod of atmosphere in Control Club, captivating sounds and lights on which KIRLIAN CAMERA will lay the camera and take photos of an ecstatic audience.

 

VIVA MUSIC’s ELECTRONIK concerts include to date MELOTRON (January 2009) and COVENANT (April 2010) concerts. They blend in perfectly with DARKWAVE.RO fests (February 2009, October 2010, January 2011) and other concerts from the same palette, such as COMBICHRIST+MORTIIS (March 2010).
