About Walk & Talk Azores Public Art Festival 2012 – Portugal (27 JUL – 12 AUG)
Walk&talk Azores is the international public art festival that annually transforms the Island of São Miguel in a privileged stage for contemporary art. It gathers artists from all over the world to create a route of site-specific installations, that crosses and shares multidisciplinary expressions, conceptualized in it’s relation with space, culture and local communities.
The Festival celebrates the regional culture and heritage, stimulates arts education and encourages a creative industry, valuing the Azores as an unparalleled destination in the contemporary cultural circuits. Promotes interaction and the artistic contamination of wider publics, which usually don’t attend conventional cultural venues, and culminates with the creation of an outdoor museum, inclusive and democratic, where all communicate and to which everyone contributes.
WE’RE WALKING AND TALKING FOR CULTURE!
This is/was our trip …
Limited edition (20) Audio Cassette
Back in 2008 Noiseplayer hacked the Myspace mp3 player to create a sorta random noise composition. 9 (friends) profile pages, each with 6 players playing 5 different samples after each other in a random order with every refresh.
Due to Myspace changes Noiseplayer no longer works, … It was fun while it lasted! Fortunately Noiseplayer recorded each player! This limited edition casette contains 5 of the hacked profile tracks!
released 10 May 2012
Noiseplayer: Jonas Nachtergaele, Kurt Stockman
Manufactured @ The Topo Copy Room
De Studio, Antwerp (BE) 27/04 -> 30/04
The Topo Copy Room was a 4 day open atelier a.k.a. exhibition space with prints, machines, zines, a shop & bar, (live-) music, a copybook installation, silk screen & RISO-printing, cassette recording sessions, artists @ work and much more… Good times!
More about The Topo Copy Room:
Triple Deck = 3 records + installation = ONE RELEASE!
Kapotski is a live plastic & electric impro trio. Its energy and singularity arise from the magic of playing together, from the dynamics that emerges between the three musicians Jonas Nachtergaele, Ruben Nachtergaele and Kurt Stockman.
Triple Deck is a release/installation that represents Kapotski in its purest form. For a week Jonas, Ruben and Kurt sojourned in a 19th century villa on the Normandy Beach to experiment with registration, play, improvisationand composition.
The result consists of three mono‐tracks, one by each musician, that were recorded simultaneously during an improvisation session. Every track gets its own vinyl record: one by Jonas, one by Ruben and one by Kurt. In this manner Triple Deck is made up of three synchronized records, which form an auditive reconstruction of a Kapotski performance. The three records are played on three different decks with three separate speakers. The decks are put on auto-repeat.
The three records are released together in a limited edition of 50 copies on the new label Les Albums Claus – Les Ateliers Claus.
A special thanks goes out to CAMPO for being supportive!

Kapotski launched K.I.S.R.T.S. 2008, a.k.a. the Kapotski International Shopdrop Record Tracking System, at ‘the game is up’ festival at the Vooruit. It sounds like a bit of a mouthful, but it’s a simple and fun concept.

Mo’vox brothers – Aim-records – Aim 06 – july 2001 – 7″ vinyl release
A detailed discription of the sound of The Mo’Vox brothers is virtually impossible. Moreover its purpose is to entertain not to instruct. This Aim-records Low Fidelity recording is scientifically designed to play with the highest quality of reproduction on the phonograph of your choice, new or old. If you are the owner of a new stereophonic system, this record will play with even more brilliant true-to-life fidelity. In short, you can purchase this record with no fear of its becoming obsolete in the future.

“The great muzak” is a whistle, a walk in the street, a happy face when you wake up. Mind eating, cause you’ll have to face it folks, this is a brainwasher. “Moon station” is this so-called though guy, marching at a good pace. A confident attitude.
With “cosmovox” we are catapulted into the atmosphere – surrounded by the deafening roar of rockets, which fade into nothingness, and are enveloped by the silence of space and swallowed into a nebulous mist of weightlessness…floating far and wide. “Yuca” reflect the Saturday night parties at the Brothers’ place. Freaking out at home, playing our own house-style enclosed by strange odors.
