…performed by some very special guests.

We’re excited to announce WOW will be installed at this year’s Incubate Festival in the Dutch city of Tilburg. And yes, there’ll be performances as well. Not just one, not two, not three… but six full blown performances of your favourite multi-channel sub-bass installation.

This time we’ve also brought along a few fellow musicians to join in on the turntables. Carl will start the installation and will then be joined by no other than A Guy Called Gerald, A Place to Bury Strangers, Front 242, Las Kellies, Sculpture, Mantra, Harmony Molina, Bersarin Quartett, Neige Morte & more!

Needless to say, the guys at Incubate are true bass connoisseurs and have promised us some of the heaviest equipment currently available. You have been warned. Three of these dates will include audience participation*, which means we’re going to create a collective HEAVYLISTENING experience!

We’re really looking forward to what looks like the most fun version of WOW ever, so if you’re in the area there is really no excuse not to drop by.

See you there!

We’re happy to announce that our WOW project – the most minimal record ever made, created by Carl Schilde – has been shortlisted for Berlin Art Prize 2013. There will be three winners in three categories, including Best Concept, and we sure hope to be one of them. The organisers seem to follow a strict no bullshit guideline, which is quite refreshing:

“The three, deliberately simplistically titled categories express an oppositional standpoint towards the tendency of over-theorizing in the reception of contemporary art.”

There are also three things to look forward to now,
all happening on June 22nd, from 6pm:

  • The award ceremony, including pleasant surprises for 3 of the 28 nominees – that’s more than 10%!
  • The opening of the shortlisted works’ exhibition, which will include our Mother Of All Records.
  • Another wall-shaking sub-bass performance by us, using four record players and four WOW records.

Oh and of course there’s also an after party. If you want to attend, you’ll have to join the facebook event to RSVP, or you won’t get in!

Hope to see you there!

We are happy to announce that we’ll take part in this year’s CTM, Berlin’s yearly festival for adventurous music and arts. We are honored to join the ranks of Sunn o))), Matmos, Simian Mobile Disco, Robert Henke and many other great artist who will perform at the festival.

WOW live performance.

On Jan 25, we’ll perform a 4 record setup of WOW, the most minimal record ever made, as part of the CTM pre-glow night at Horst Krzbrg. It’s the first time we’ll actually play those ultra-low sine-tones ourselves instead of having the audience spin them for us. It’ll be a totally new experience, even if you’ve already been to one of our previous WOW installations.

Expect some massive sub-sonic wave fields to experience with your whole body. Feel free to move around during the performance to explore all the subtle facets of the bass.
