Schaltkreis Wassermann | pioneer group of electronic music
May 13, 2016 @ 9:00 pm

Schaltkreis Wassermann was a pioneer group of electronic music. Founded in 1979 by Stella & PJ Wassermann
It was a great and very psychedelic time. Stella & PJ spent days, weeks and months in their studio exploring sound and consciousness resulting in PSYCHOTRON, a ground breaking album in 1981 showcasing a lot of what was to become mainstream in electronic music, techno, psyTrance and even pop music. PSYCHOTRON was sold all over the world as a vinyl album and made it to number 7 of the British synthesizer charts in “Melody Maker”.

the making of occeppa sun

9 zentralamerikanische, 3 berliner Musiker und 2 mexikanische Video Künstler stellen in dieser einmaligen Veranstalltung ihr Filmprojekt Occeppa Sun, in Vorträgen, Filmausschnitten und Solokonzerten, vor. 

Hier ihre Geschichte:

Was passiert wenn man elektronische Musiker und Videokünstler aus Deutschland und Zentralamerika für zwei Wochen in die mexikanische Wüste schickt? Noch dazu wenn selbige sowohl im Club als auch in experimentellen musikalischen Gewässern zuhause sind und überdies ein Faible für die obskuren Filme von Alejandro Jodorowski teilen?

Das Goethe-Institut Mexiko hat in Zusammenarbeit mit den Gebrüdern Teichmann und Can Khan Oral im Februar 2015 zum Soundcamp ins „magische Dorf“ Malinalco geladen. Dort sind zehn Elektro-, Noise-und Rockmusiker aus Mexiko, Zentralamerika und Deutschland für knapp zwei Wochen zusammengekommen, um ihre verschiedenen musikalischen und kulturellen Wurzeln so zu verbinden, dass daraus eine gemeinsame Energie und nie gehörte Musik, in Kürze, die Gruppe „Mondmaschine“, entsteht. Inspiriert vom magischen Malinalco erarbeitete  das Künstlerduo Viral Inc. parallel den Film „Occeppa Sun“, eine surreale Parabel auf den Kreis des Lebens.

Weitere beteiligte Künstler aus Mexiko und Zentralamerika sind Mabe Fratti aus Guatemala-Stadt (Cello, Gesang), Ingmar Herrera aus Panama-Stadt (Saxophon, Keyboard, Electronics), Ronald Bustamente aus San José, Costa Rica (Feedback-Gitarre, Electronics), Clau Fernández aus Monterrey, Mexiko (Gitarre, Bass), Julian Bonequi aus Mexiko-Stadt (Percussion, Schlagwerk) und Santi Rodríguez aus Mexiko-Stadt (Mischpult, Effekte).

Zu dieser Gruppe haben sich im Laufe des Projekts als Ehrengäste Gudrun Gut (Einstürzende Neubauten, Malaria) sowie Krautrock-Urgestein Hans-Joachim Irmler (Faust) und Ulrich Teichmann (Teichmann & Söhne) an der Querflöte gesellt. 

Als grandioser Abschluss wurde der Film beim Festival Nrmal in Mexiko-Stadt live vertont.
