springfestival

pictures and stories from c/o pop

those of you who visit my blog and do not aggregate the rss-feed have maybe noticed that the pictures of the flickr-header have changed. the reason is that i finally uploaded all pictures i took at the c/o pop festival in cologne, germany.

here is a preview of the photos:

a very positive review, published by the festival’s press office, can be read here [german]. the article gives a good overview, but is too less critical.

some of the pictures will also be be published on the website of the springfestival, since i had the order to document their trip to cologne.

next stop: c/o pop, cologne

c/o pop (cologne on pop) is an annual festival for urban pop culture which has been taking place in Cologne since 2004. The festival programme is strongly indebted to the »Sound of Cologne«, focussing mainly on electronic club music and the diverse culture that goes with it, but also reflects contemporary trends in the indie pop and rock scene.

i will take a lot of pictures.

montage sauvage tonight in oslo

tonight, our vj-collective montage sauvage (myspace) is going to perform at fabrikken in oslo. since my friends came here to pick me up, this was the best opportunity to have a gig together again. we are going to be on the second floor, which is actually quite big. tobi neumann, who is the main act tomorrow comes from germany and is related to sven väth’s club cocoon. he has been producing and remixing for acts like miss kittin, chicks on speed or dj hell.

montage sauvage @ springseven

press picture

montage sauvage (myspace), the visual collective i belong to, is going to perform at the springseven festival. last year at springsix we had an amazing time. we made visuals at the first day of the festival alongside artist as superpitcher, the orb, jennifer cardini and the modernist.
this year we are also going to play at the first day, visualizing the music of:

    Live: Digitalism (Kitsune, Hamburg / D)
    Live: Whomadewho (Gomma, Kopenhagen / DK)
    Felix Fuchs (Electronix Gang Bang, Wien / A)
    marfloW (Electronix Gang Bang, Wien / A)
    Visuals: Montage Sauvage (Graz / A)

16th of may, dom im berg, start 22.00, til early morning.
i am not sure, if i will be able to attend to the gig, because the flight connections to austria are not too cheap at the moment. but I will see.
well, what i really wanted to say is that the new website was published today. some advertisement from the promoter’s newsletter:

3….2…..1….
springseven is online! Our new website is ready to enter!
The springseven lineup will once again prove that a festival can be cutting edge and and for mass consumption at the same time.
The hottest trends, the biggest legends, the best sets and the stars of tomorrow: see them hear them, feel them from 16th – 20th May in all springseven locations.
It is springfestival tradition bringing new and unknown acts on one stage with legends and pioneers of electronic music.
