Experimentaclub’10 @ La Casa Encendida – Madrid
30/09/2010 - 03/10/2010various
In its 10th edition Experimentaclub seems to have less of a push than its previous 2-3 editions, we’re noticing less advertising and communication from their main sponsor Caja Madrid (via La Casa Encendida) & a far less ambitious line-up brought by the director Javier Piñango… crisis maybe?
Anyway, we cannot ignore one of the best electronic & truly experimental music festivals that inaugurate the year in southern Europe: Experimentaclub ’10 in Madrid. It’s no Sonar ok? But the intimacy of listening to Chris Clark or Mouse on Mars (well known artists) in such a small venue (the Auditorium is barely for a couple maybe 3 hundred people at most and the terrace for around 100) for only 3€ is a unique and always aerial experience.
This year the festival is focused on the memory and its power to create electronic music. Codes, sounds, instruments, aesthetics and previous electronic languages that the electronic of this new decade is reviewing in order to reinterpret from a new point of view… new electronic is always old re-dimensioned old electro?
This year will be a lot about how current electronic sounds play & experiment with the memory; present in the workshops but also brought by this year’s top artists: Carlos Giffoni (behind No Fun Fest) or Experimental Audio Research (E.A.R), the most experimental sounds from Sonic Boom.
A mix of past & present and a not easy way of mixing old & new…. Seefeel are making their comeback, Peter Rehberg’s dark project, black electronic metal by Stephen O’Malley (member of Sunn O)))… and the presence of Bernhard Günter one of the big names when it comes to art sound.
