Wanking On Weird Setups Fest #1

Setup for “Wanking on Weird Setups Fest #1
a festival that celebrates out of the ordinary audio setups.
Friday June 8 2012: there was a first edition @ DOK (Ghent)

Kapotski invites musicians and sound artists to build sound installations that fit within 1 square meter. The installations play autonomous. The only control they have is an on/off button. No concert, no performance: only Setup!

WANKERS:

Geert-Jan Hobijn (Staalplaat)
Jürgen De Blonde (Köhn)
Paul Cassiers & Wim Deliveyne (Lauw)
Pauwel de Buck
Kurt Stockman (kapotski)
Jonas Nachtergaele (kapotski)

Kapotski – Triple Deck

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.

Kapotski distributed 500 vinyl records in music stores worldwide.

And that story continues on kisrts.vooruit.be… Each one of these records carries a unique code which allows the owner to log in on the site and tell the world where the records are… If things go well you’ll be able to view the path travelled by the records from march 2008 up untill … .

A big thanks to everyone who helped us with this project!
