Syrphe August 2013 updates, events, news, etc.


Experimental musician and documentary film maker Zev Asher passed away.
Zev had also made some films like Subcultural Revolution: Shanghai (featuring the noise artists Torturing Nurse) and
RAT ART: Croatian Independents.

Today (29th) C-drík will play again one hour of experimental and improvised music from Latin America, Asia and Africa on Staalplaat Radio (from 23h until 00h, followed by Geert-Jan until 01h). You can listen to it online, I'm not sure to record it this time again...

New double CD by Goh Lee Kwang. Launch as part of the 4th Switch ON Mini Fest!

We Play! Records has published two new albums this year (factory made CDr).

adeō, a new noise Honk Kong/Macau group comprising Alok (A Roller Control, 31G), Sin:Ned (No One Pulse, After Doom), e:ch (Forget the G) and oetzi.p (31G, A Poison Tree) just released a 3 limited edition albums aptly named the “adeō triology” all under different labels, which are : adeō – adeō (USB, Day’s Eye Records), adeō – 01 – 04 (3″ CDR, Lona Records), adeō – Prototype (5″ CDR, Re-Records).
adeō is A for Alok, D for Sin:Ned, E for e:ch and O for oetzi, the latin meaning of this adverb is "so much", "so greatly".

Perennially Peripheral : A One Man Nation interview I perhaps never mentioned.

Four interviews about the East Asian scene (all in Chinese) :
East Asia: label outside noise in East Asia/標籤之外,東亞的噪音
Hong Chulki (South Korea)
Rolf OxDx (Hong Kong)
Goh Lee Kwang (Malaysia)
Nguyen Hong Giang (Vietnam)

Urban Arts Berlin just uploaded the last recordings of the live performances given at Waterloo, Berlin (part one : ANY, part two : C-drík).
I must tell that I took off one part of my live that I found boring.

(Sorry only in French)

La Spirale s'est ainsi rendue au Bénin, pays culturel d'importance et berceau originel du vaudou. Nous avons scruté les travaux photographiques de Phyllis Galembo, de Pieter Hugo et de Richard Mosse, interviewé Jonathan Dotse sur le futur du Ghana et C-Drik Fermont au sujet de ses voyages en terres méconnues. Leah Gordon et Aude Osnowycz nous ont ramené leurs visions des Caraïbes, l'autre terre africaine.

Mais ces efforts, déjà redoublés, n'ont pas suffi à étancher notre curiosité. Ce qui nous a décidés à nous focaliser plus encore sur le continent africain, tant nous pressentons qu'il jouera un rôle crucial dans les décennies à venir ; loin, bien loin des clichés misérabilistes que l'on se plaît encore trop souvent à véhiculer en Occident. Une mosaïque infinie de mégapoles folles et de zones vierges, dont la démesure ne connaît pas d'équivalent.

Embarquez à bord de notre esquif, nous mettons le cap en direction d'un futur exaltant.
