AL.Berlin presents: WAEL ALKAK | New Album Release

AL.Berlin is glad and honoured to present:
WAEL ALKAK – NEW ALBUM RELEASE PARTY in BERLIN
Urban Spree 15.2.2019
Starts: 22:00

★★★

Wael Alkak is a Syrian musician, based in Paris. A composer and Electronic music producer who trained in classical knowledge at the Conservatory of Damascus.

He presents this year his new solo album “Alkak Live 2020”, a creation deeply rooted in the old Chaabi music of the Levant and at the same time at the forefront of a new multiform electronic culture. This third album is his most personal, the result of two years of concerts across Europe.

With this new album, Wael Alkak shares a kind of music that tells from his story, inspired by the rythms of traditional dances and Arabic folk songs. His live performances are the accomplishment of a hybrid and experimental musical creation, combining synthesizers and machines with Chaâbi rhythms, and inviting the audience to dance all the way to trance. For the first time, the show will begin with a performance by the artist on Bouzouk.

//Line Up//

22:00 (Opening Act) – ♫ Moji & Lu Mia (Live) [Rebellion der Träumer / Geholper & Gestolper]

00:00 ♫ Wael Alkak وائل القاق “Alkak Live 2020”

★★★

وائل القاق موسيقي سوري مقيم في باريس، مؤلف ومنتج موسيقى الكترونية، حاصل على إجازة في الموسيقى الكلاسيكية من المعهد العالي للموسيقى في دمشق.

يصدر هذه السنة أسطوانته الثالثة تحت اسم: القاق لايڤ ٢٠٢٠، إنتاج موسيقي مستقل يبحث في جذور الموسيقى الشعبية في بلاد الشام وما حولها، في نفس الوقت ممزوج مع موسيقات الكترونية مختلفة، وهو نتيجة عمل ١٠ سنوات من التجريب في هذا الحقل عموماً، و نتاج عروضه الحية في أوروبا خلال السنتين الماضيتين خصوصاً.

في وصفه أسطوانته الجديدة، يتبّى القاق ويدافع عن ما يعرف بالالكتروشعبي، الأسلوب الذي أثار جدلاً في أوساط النخبة الثقافية العربية، لكنه – يقول المنتج المستقل – بكل الأحوال أسلوب فرض نفسه ضمن الأوساط الشبابية العربية والغربية، كما فرض نفسه في السوق، مستفيداً من الثورة التكنولوجية التي أتاحت لأي موسيقي أن ينتج ما يشاء ويعبر وينشر بحرية دون الحاجة للمرور بكبريات شركات الإنتاج.

للمرة الأولى، يفتتح القاق الحفل بتقاسيم تقليدية والكترونية على البزق، من روح الموال والأغنية في الأسطوانة.

Line Up:
19:00 Doors open
20:00 DJ set | Shins-k
21:30 Live | El Rass
22:30 DJ set | Shins-k

\\El Rass\\
In Arabic means (The head), also known as Mazen El Sayed, he is a rapper and a music producer from Tripoli Lebanon. He already has in his discography 5 albums, the newest being “Baad Al Hazimeh” (After defeat), in addition to more than 200 singles in collaboration with many other music-makers and rappers from the region. He is a member of the “MSKH” collective and co-founder of the label “Hamim”.

El Rass’s work has gained fame during the last 7 years around the Arab world, especially for his dense lyrical content and the rejection of being confined to a limited set of topics or approaches. But also for an uncompromising spirit of expression, intertwined with a vision of rap as a free space for nuance and detail. He interacts with heritage as a source of inspiration, from within it, in continuity. While in form, El Rass makes his musical choices with a drive to push out of conventional formats, on the levels of arrangement and diversity in performance between singing and rapping.

/AL\ Festival Berlin is on the Music Board Berlin Festival Funding list for 2019.

The /AL\Festival aims to connect Berliners who are interested in the Contemporary Middle Eastern Music Scene with musicians and music acts from the region, to create a temporal spatial opportunity to develop this scene in Berlin as a Contemporary Moment, regardless of margin spots on Eurocentric festivals or programs promoted for their empowerment value alone. We want to promote and empower this scene for its artistic value, while giving it its deserved unique space to develop further sustainably.



Acid Mothers Temple • Sunn Trio • Stereocilia • Sturle Dagsland

 

⊙ ACID MOTHERS TEMPLE & THE MELTING PARAISO U.F.O. ⊙
(Japan)
http://acidmothers.com
https://acidmotherstemplethemeltingparaisoufo.bandcamp.com
https://www.facebook.com/acidmotherstempleofficial
Acid Mothers Temple & the Melting Paraiso Underground Freak Out (and subsequent offshoots) is a Japanese psychedelic space rock band, the core of which formed in 1995. The band is led by guitarist Kawabata Makoto and early in their career featured many musicians, but by 2004 the line-up had coalesced with only a few core members and frequent guest musicians.
The band has released albums frequently on a number of international record labels as well as the Acid Mothers Temple family record label, which was established in 1998 to document the activities of the whole collective.
“In a non-stop stream of thrilling noise, they segue from supercharged stomp-rock, through doomy choral chanting and frazzled go-go, to a thundering melee of atonal freakouts. Then on to a pulsating, echo-drenched disco-rock groove, which morphs into a motorik rhythm too rapid even for the autobahn, works itself into a squalling frenzy, breaks cover as a kind of galloping, syncopated, Underworld-with-rabies affair, and flows into a long, chiming trance number climaxing in a collective instrumental howl.” – David Bennun

⊙ SUNN TRIO ⊙
(Phoenix – Arizona)
https://sunntrio.bandcamp.com
https://www.facebook.com/sunntrio
Described as deep spirited, Arabic-music-tinged free jazz-punk and harsh exotica, Sunn Trio’s ever-evolving ensemble digests a number of genres, spitting them back out in creative destruction. Carrying on a long tradition of sun-beaten Phoenix punk, Sunn Trio evokes the sweltering and hallucinatory Arizona desert. Echoes of Sonny Sharrock, John McLaughlin, and Sir Richard Bishop can be heard in Joel Robinson’s fiery blurs of guitar. Imagine the Thinking Fellers Union Local 282 in full force, echoing from behind a curtain of bitter haze. Founded by Robinson in 2010, the ever-changing band has been constantly recording and releasing material, with a recent LP, Fayrus, on Germany’s Unrock Records.
“Wielding Indo-Arabian saz and white lightning six-string shrapnel amidst an alligator snapping turtle’s rhythm section, this trio-quartet-sextet may also sprout horns, flutes, animal skins, or shadow gamelan to faithfully demolish that whiny and predictable listening experience of today’s tepidly lazy, underachieving experimental music scene. Not a ‘safe’ environment.” – Alan Bishop of Sun City Girls
“There’s a woozy, heatstroke feel to the band’s innovative blend of surf rock, free jazz, mystical drone, and world music. Consistently recording and releasing material via self-distributed cassettes, the Trio’s sound mutates in concert, with fantastic flurries of distorted guitars butting up against mantric psychedelic saxophone runs and looping bass.” – Jason Patrick Woodbury

⊙ STEREOCILIA ⊙
(Bristol – Britain)
http://www.stereociliamusic.com
https://stereocilia.bandcamp.com
https://www.facebook.com/Stereocilia1
Stereocilia is Bristol based guitarist and composer, John Scott. John uses his guitar, analog synths and live looping techniques to create dense, rich layers of sound.
Over the past 10 years John has performed all over the UK and Europe with various projects. in the past he has shared a stage with acts including: Gnod, Daniel Lanois, Ex-Easter Island Head, White Hills, Acid Mothers Temple, Ben Frost, Josef Van Wissem, Yuri Landman, Mick Turner (The Dirty Three), Machinefabriek, ThisQuietArmy, Noveller, and performed in three of Rhys Chatham’s guitar Orchestras. He has also presented work for live radio broadcasts, and regularly composes for Short Film.
Spring of 2019 saw the release of Stereocilia’s 4th album, and second for Brighton label, Drone Rock Records.

⊙ STURLE DAGSLAND ⊙
(Stavanger – Norway)
http://sturledagsland.bandcamp.com
https://www.facebook.com/sturledagsland
