this was surely the most arctic week in my whole life.
ok, i think next winters in germoney also will be that cold, but never that much snow i hope/guess.
its always between -2 and -12 °Celsius up here plus between 3 and maybe 8 cm of snow nearly each day/night.
but lets leave the wheather report aside, the more important is what we have been working on that week.
for instance :
i worked with Eva ETcetera on this piece, mostly as an assistant for her but also with my own weak visual art ego.
and check out this really ***zing chapel that roel faassen built with his assistants.
of course only a preview.
we have two "stars" also here with sue and sandis - they are ice sculpturists since long, they made the ice-restaurant
and another big sculpture and also they offered the workshop.
i have gathered like 1 GB of useful sounds, i wont mention the useless ones. i think i have to fill up my freesound account a little more when i have some time.
tonight im gonna finish all the interviews to have material for the docu. may also edit down a feature for my friends DIY-Church Radio Program.
once again internet makes the world much smaller.
and for the berliners :concierge_weetr - Die voegel by concierge_weetr
my workshop concept is growing and becoming more adult right now.
but still secret.
a little piece for all addicted.
something totally different today - going back to my teenage roots.
for the finale : actually the sun was shining a little bit today.
wish us luck for the weather tomorow.

start of the blog.
first of all :
im really amazed by this festival. its a festival for ice and fire art taking place in hällefors, sweden, curated by roel faassen and lisbeth vloet.
i am the only participant who wont do sculptures, i am here to
1. take care of the presentation night sound needs
1.2 to play a set out of the impressions i gather here at the presentation night
2. to make a audio documentation about the festival and the artists
3. to go away from the urban shit at least for some days
I brought with me a cheap zoom h2 fieldrecorder, a contactmic, a modified yamaha vss-30 and a think pad as the DAW plus headphones. also a toothbrush and stuff.
some impressions from the first morning :
"you know what happened to the people of babel?"
"they couldnt communicate any more"
so they used ice and fieldrecorders.
I've already learned :
* never work hard with 6 layers of clothes in -10° cold. sweat is death.
* ice is quite dense, maybe compare it to wood. it damps the waves fast.
* always tag your recordings
* how to say "i dont speak swedish" in swedish, but i forgot it again
* stephen king wrote a couple of good short stories is 1986, no joke!
* "Only country where the clouds are interesting" (hugh cornell) is a lie! since geoengineering is so fancy, german clouds are also nice as hell.
