The titles of the music pieces are borrowed from the poetry of Allen Ginsberg
(Lyrik.Poetry – The Essential Ginsberg 2015)

… Syntax condensed, sound is solid.
Intense fragments of spoken idiom, best.
Consonants around vowels make sense.
Savor vowels, appreciate consonants.
Subject is seen by what she sees.
Others can measure their vision by what we see.
Candor ends paranoia.
Allen Ginsberg (1986)

BASIS_SoundSpace (BASIS Booksalon & Klangraum at MUCCA / Munich Center of Community Arts) – german Basis means basic in English.
A new sound space for contemporary, experimental and improvised music I’ve introduced at MUCCA.
It can be seen as a successor project to the Salon für Klang+Kunst, which gave up after the 99th event due to corona.
The performances are co-sponsored and supported by the dasvinzenz theatre.
The acoustically performed space is the book estate of the legendary left-wing former bookshop with antiquarian bookshop, the Basis-Buchhandlung GmbH.
Founded in 1972, the bookshop on Adalbertstraße in Munich was a focal point for critical minds for almost 40 years and an intellectual staple for many, including me. The institution, as such it was to be called, had to close about ten years ago.
The recorded space with the leftover books is an adequate shell for the unadjusted improvised sounds we create there – a transformation of the past into a freely designed future!

The command centre (Kommandozentrale) in the MUCCA was formerly used to control all Munich street lighting, including the Christmas tree on Marienplatz (the city’s main square). the MUCCA (Munich Center of Community Arts) is a temporary cultural location.
