Felix Kubin - Music For Theatre And Radio Play (2008)

"Felix Kubin is a Devil in Gods clothes. If there'd be one man to send to the aliens as an example of the mankind, that'd be Felix Kubin.“ (Aavikko, Finnland)
ARTIST`````FELIX KUBIN UND DAS MINERALORCHESTER
ALBUM`````
MUSIC FOR THEATRE AND RADIO PLAY
GENRE`````ELECTRONIC, EXPERIMENTAL, AMBIENT

WHY:
My favourite dadaist German is back. I like Matki Wandalki more but this is a quite surprising European refreshment.

NICE AND SHORT BIOGRAPHY:
FELIX KUBIN, messenger of exploding lungs, lives and works against gravitation. His activities comprise futurist pop, electroacoustic and chamber orchestra music, radio plays, performance projects, lectures, curator activities and his own record label Gagarin Records. At the age of 12 he started composing electronic 4-track music of which a selection has been released on Dat Politics' label SKIPP, on A-Musik and Was Soll Das? Schallplatten. Since 10 years he played on plenty of festivals for electronic music, among them Sonar, Mutek, Ars Electronica, ISEA and Wien Modern. His vast artistic output has been published on vinyl, CD and film, in books and magazines. Other groups he was/is involved with include the contemporary ensemble Integrales, the noise project Klangkrieg, the communist singing group Liedertafel Margot Honecker and the tetchy teenage bands Die Egozentrischen 2 and x2.



ALBUM REVIEW BY boomkat.com (Read the whole review here)
A logical follow-up to Felix Kubin's Filmmusik album released a full decade ago, this compilation of theatrical and radiophonic soundtracks finds one of the most distinctive voices within European electronic music at the peak of his powers. The music compiled here comes from three plays: Branko Simic's Zufall, based on a Vladimir Nabokov short story, Hollywood Elegien, a Brecht/Eisler adaptation by Schorsch Kamerun and The Raft, a radio play written by Xentos Bentos of The Homosexuals. Throughout, Kubin's work artfully obliterates conventional orchestral sources with a Mego-like disregard for soundmatter.

Thanks for posting this--I just found out about Flix from The Wire magazine--I am usually pretty up on this type of thing, but I have not heard of him till now. Amazing stuff. I think I have a new favorite artist. The video he is in by Mariola Brillowska, Hotel Supernova, made my brain explode. Thanks for providing new artistic stimulation.
