ERUPTION ist Ausbruch von knarzenden Energien, von unkonventionellen Ideen, von a-rhythmischen Gedanken, von kakophonischen Bildern und musikalischen Fantasmen.

ERUPTION ist ebenfalls der Name des zweiten Albums von Kluster, einem Bandprojekt des 2011 verstorbenen Musikers und Videokünstlers Conrad Schnitzler, zusammen mit seinen Kollegen Dieter Moebius und Hans-Joachim Roedelius.

ERUPTION war auch der Name eines zwei-tägigen Festivals, dass sich im Juli 2018 im Golden Pudel Club in Hamburg ereignete.
Zwei Tage trafen sich dort Künstler und Musiker aus unterschiedlichen Bereichen und Generationen die sich vom umfassenden Oevre, sowie vom freigeistigen Denken und Tun Conrad Schnitzlers in vielfältigster Form inspirieren liessen.

Es entstand ein vielschichtiges Programm an Konzerten, Performances, Sound- und Videoinstallationen, aus dem sich nun die Veröffentlichung dieser zwei besonderen Schallplatten auf Pudel Produkte, dem hauseigenen Label des Golden Pudel Club, ergab. Auf der Single befindet sich ein bisher unveröffentlichtes Stück von Conrad Schnitzler & Ken Montgomery sowie eine Erzählung von Asmus Tietchens über seinen Vater und Schnitzler, die unwissentlich in den 1950er Jahren zusammen auf dem Dampfschiff Bornhofen den Atlantik überquerten, der eine als Ingenieur, der andere als Heizer.

Auf der LP versammeln sich die eingeladenen Künstler des Festivals, Zeitgenossen Schnitzlers wie Ken Montgomery, Wolfgang Seidel und Asmus Tietchens sowie junge Akteur und Akteurinnen die speziell für ERUPTION eine Arbeit entwickelten. Darunter sind Lena Willikens & Sarah Szczesny mit Fragmenten aus deren Performance Phantom Con Ballett, der DJ Phuong-Dan welcher aus dem Gedicht About Rhythmus und Rhythmusstudien Schnitzlers eine musikalische Collage komponierte, ein Stück aus der Performance von Felix Kubin, der mit Hilfe eines Lichtscanners und seinem Modularsynthesizer graphische Notation in Sound umwandelt, eine theatrales Soundstück von Carl und Sohn (auch bekannt als Les Trucs), der Produzent und DJ RVDS, der sich dem Stück Tanz im Regen von Conrad Schnitzler annahm und viele mehr.
Initiiert und kuratiert von Nika Son.

Conrad Schnitzler (1937-2011) nannte sich selbst 'Intermedialist', er war Musiker, Komponist, Video- und Konzeptkünstler und gilt bis heute als einer der bedeutendsten Wegbereiter der elektronischen Avantgarde-Musik, beginnend in den frühen 1970er-Jahren. Er war Gründungsmitglied der einflussreichen Krautbands Tangerine Dream und Kluster, Mitbegründer des legendären Zodiac Free Arts Lab in Berlin und hat mit seinen Solowerken, wie auch mit seinen unzähligen Kollaborationen, weltweit die Arbeit vieler MusikerInnen genreübergreifend inspiriert und beeinflusst.
Außergewöhnlich war nicht nur seine enorme Produktivität, sondern auch seine sich allen Kriterien der kommerziellen Verwertbarkeit verweigernde künstlerische Praxis. Zeit seines Lebens hat er sich keinen musikalischen Regeln unterworfen. Freiheit und Unabhängigkeit blieben immer seine obersten Prämissen.

ERUPTION is an outburst of creaking energies, unconventional ideas, arhythmic thoughts, cacophonous images and musical phantasms.
ERUPTION is also the name of the second album by Kluster, a band project of the musician and video artist Conrad Schnitzler, who died in 2011, together with his colleagues Dieter Moebius and Hans-Joachim Roedelius.
ERUPTION was also the name of a two-day festival that took place in July 2018 at the Golden Pudel Club in Hamburg.
For two days, artists and musicians from different generations and working in various fields met here, who were in one way or the other inspired by the comprehensive oeuvre Conrad Schnitzlers’, as well as by his free-spirited thoughts and actions.
The result was a multi-faceted programme of concerts, performances, sound and video installations, which resulted in the release of these two special records on Pudel Produkte, the house-own label of the Golden Pudel Club.
The single features a previously unreleased piece by Conrad Schnitzler & Ken Montgomery as well as a story told by Asmus Tietchens about his father and Schnitzler, who unwittingly crossed the Atlantic together on the steamboat Bornhofen in the late 1950s, one as an engineer, the other as a heater.
The LP brings together the festival's invited artists, Schnitzler‘s contemporaries such as Ken Montgomery, Wolfgang Seidel and Asmus Tietchens, as well as young artists who developed works especially for ERUPTION. Among them are Lena Willikens & Sarah Szczesny with fragments from their performance Phantom Con Ballet, the DJ Phuong-Dan who composed a musical collage from the poem About Rhythmus and rhythm studies by Schnitzler, a piece from the performance of musician and media artist Felix Kubin, who uses a light scanner and his modular synthesizer to convert graphic notation into sound, a theatrical sound piece by Carl und Sohn (also known as Les Trucs), the producer and DJ RVDS, who interacted with the piece Tanz im Regen by Conrad Schnitzler and many more.
Initiated and compiled by Nika Son.

Conrad Schnitzler (1937-2011) called himself an 'intermedialist', he was a musician, composer, video and concept artist and is still considered one of the most important pioneers of electronic avant-garde music, beginning in the early 1970s. He was a founding member of the influential Krautbands Tangerine Dream and Kluster, co-founder of the legendary Zodiac Free Arts Lab in Berlin, and has inspired and influenced the work of many musicians around the world with his solo works and countless collaborations.
Not only his enormous productivity was extraordinary, but also his artistic practice, which refused all criteria of commercial usability. Throughout his life he has not subjected himself to any musical rules. Freedom and independence always remained his highest premises.

DMRA (Danse Musique Rhone-Alpes) is a radical music solo project, bringing together an organic conception of dance music along with shrewd beats and dirty hiss.
An 8 tracks cassette recorder is talking with a drum machine, a sequencer and a DIY analog synth, all surrounded by some live percussions. Textures are created live with the analog tape medium. DMRA is also part of Deux Boules Vanille and Salsa and runs the tape music label Transcachettetapes.

He adopted the name Kaos in the mid-'80s, when by his account he was the "first graffiti painter in (West) Berlin, producing art heavily influenced by the "street culture" of New York City. He also skateboarded professionally. From there, he moved to London, where in the early '90s, he hung around the studio of legendary producer Cameron McVey and immersed himself in England's blossoming club scene. By the late '90s, Kaos had returned to Berlin and joined with two other journeymen the band Turntable Terranova (Terranova Close the Door LP), an electronic production trio who would be responsible for an early, beloved entry in the prestigious (!StudioK7) DJ-Kicks series. For the last decade, Kaos has been going at it alone, at least in principle: His first solo full-length album, "Hello Stranger", included collaborations with Erlend Øye, Daniel Wang and Conny Plank.To state the obvious, Kaos has seen and done a lot of things. And he's still on the move, starting his own record label, "Jolly Jams", released quality 12"s from Tiago, Eric Duncan, Alex Olson etc., he's recorded with Manuel Göttsching (E2 E4), released the Hit Single "Love The Night Away", comped discs with Liquid Liquid's Sal P, remixed everyone from Roxy Music to Neneh Cherry and to supreme underground acts like Felix Dickinson, and is touring the world with a high-flying DJ set.

Born in Milton Keynes, England, froma British father and Czech mother, she started making music using a 4-track cassette recorder as a young teen, combining classical piano, electronics through sampling techniques, getting her first job at her friends’ local recording studio.She later went on to study Creative Music Technology at Bath Spa University to learn the art of record production, while living in Bristol and discovering the cities early bass music scene which would later evolve to become the now world-famous dubstep movement.

As a postgraduate student she moved overseas to Berlin to work as a Sound Designer at one of the leading global music tech companies, Native Instruments;developing products for producers and DJ’s alike.She collaborated with internationally known Techno club, Berghain; to record an archive of field-recordings inside the club which were then used for their 5 year anniversary release,‘Fünf’ (2010).

She signed her first two albums ‘Emika’ (2011) and ‘Dva’ (2013) to UK indie label Ninjatune which both received critical acclaim in the music mediaand personal support from Mary-Anne Hobbs and Thom Yorke who statedon his BBC 6Musicradio show in 2012, ‘I hope she (Emika) becomes very famous’.Her bass-heavy, edgy songs with her mix of piano and sultry breathy voice, had now become
hersynonymoustrademark.

In 2015 Emika established her own imprint Emika Records and continues to develop her work in electronic and classical music, embracing the creative freedom which came with such a venture and using this to push new classical music forwards and experiment with the blueprint of being a Berlin DJ.Some of her solo piano works from her album ‘Klavirni’ (2015) have been streamed more than 15 million times on Spotify.

She developed a strong connection to her fans via her social media platforms and live performances and through their support,her first full symphony ‘Melanfonie’ (2017) was crowdfunded via Kickstarter where she received €25,000 from fans in a 3 month period. She was able to hire the city of Prague’s 50-piece Philharmonic Orchestra and explore to her Eastern Europeanroots as inspiration for the piece.

As a performer,Emika takes to the stage with her piano, synths, voice and custom-made tech set up.Combining her skills as a sound designer, classically trained composer, and prolific singer-songwriter, she presents music from her latest album ‘Falling In Love With Sadness’(2018) and loves to improvise live, reinventing previous material from her 6 previousalbums.She recently sold -out the Berlin-Zeiss Planetarium (2019) with her unique live show featuring 360°dome visuals and surround sound. The show received great reviews from DJ Mag, Uncut, and BE-AT.TV.

After 4 years of collaborating, dub-keyboardist Emerson Kitamura and baroque pop singer mmm finds their rhythm and voice that leaves a tasteful afterglow.

Emerson Kitamura and mmm (pronounced me-my-mo) began their collaboration in 2016.
In 2018, Emerson Kitamura’s 12-inch vinyl “The Countryside is Great EP” was released from EM records as a playful spin-off supporting a Japanese film “Bangkok Nights.” The A-side was covers of Thai pop songs filtered through Kitamura’s interpretation, and on the B-side was his yet another clever cover of the Tomatos’ version of 70’s disco tune, “Rock Your Baby” featuring mmm on vocals. Though being a B-side track, inquiries about this track and the singer began flowing in, including from UK label Balearic which compiled the song in their compilation album Balearic 4.

While “Rock Your Baby” was fully produced by Emerson Kitamura and featured mmm as a singer, mmm is also a multi-instrumentalist who plays the guitar, bass and flute on her projects and supporting acts. In 2018, Emerson Kitamura and mmm released a cassette tape of original songs which was an accumulation of ideas and performances drawn equally from both sides. The tape was available exclusively at their shows and had soon sold out.

Their music pushes and leaps boundaries of musical genres, and together they are in the midst of actualizing a smooth yet radical sound that has never crossed their — or anybody’s — minds.

Emerson KitamuraSince the late 80’s, Emerson Kitamura has participated ceaselessly both in the indie and the mainstream scenes of Japan. He has supported a number of respected artists such as IMAWANO Kiyoshiro, EGO-WRAPPIN’ and Kicell. He had begun his career as a keyboardist in bands MUTE BEAT and JAGATARA and thus has close bonds with the reggae and African beat scenes, though Kitamura himself carries an easygoing air that is not as “macho” as those music genre can tend to characterize. In 2014, he has released an all-instrumental solo album and since has performed many solo shows which are known as “Emer-Solo” shows. In 2019, he was invited for his first tour in Nairobi, Kenya.
