Staubgold – exhibition
Exhibition presenting the cult German label.
6-10 July 2016, 12:00-01:00 | Festival Club, Błonia
Staubgold – A German label established in 1998 by Markus Detmer. When setting up his label, this renowned musician and journalist focused on presenting electronic and experimental music from Germany and abroad. Staubgold launched in Cologne and after a few years moved to Berlin. Currently, the company is based in Perpignan, France.
Nowadays, Staubgold Record Label is an acclaimed international brand in the European independent music market. The label has published records of key representatives of the Avant-Garde, such as Jaki Liebezeit (percussionist for the legendary Can), Faust, Kammerflimmer Kollektief, The Flying Lizard, Klangwart, Family Fodder and many others.
„Music out of Place” – is the label’s motto and philosophy that perfectly blends with the ideals of the East of Culture – Different Sounds Art’n’Music Festival
Artists representing Staubgold that will perform in Lublin in July 2016 are:
Aksak – Jaki Liebezeit/Holger Mertin/Jozef Suchy (Germany)
The project came about as a result of a meeting of two renowned artists representing different generations. Jaki Liebezeit belongs to the older generation. A member of the cult band Can (pioneers of krautrock), he is uninanimously considered one of the best percussionists in the history of music. For many years, he regularly performed with Chet Baker. He also worked with Brian Eno, Eurythmics and Depeche Mode ( for instance on the production of the cult album “Ultra”). Holger Martin is the younger music - master of percussion instruments, noise makers and all types of drums. He also frequently plays the gong, the cimbalom and various modulators creating fascinating sound structures. The gentlemen invited an excellent guitarist, Jozef Suchy to work with them and this combination produces a truly hypnotic effect.
Kammerflimmer Kollektief (Germany)
An excellent band from Karlsruhe that combines jazz, contemporary music, electronic music as well as rock and noise into a curious whole. The German trio has been working continuously since 1996 and their greatest strength are excellent live performances. At concerts, Kammerflimmer Kollekitef can surprise and delight even the greatest music connosieurs.
Markus Detmer aka Monsieur Croque (Germany)
During the festival, the artists will present an overview piece of his label. It will be possible to listen to different music genres and styles- from the Avant-garde electronics to melodious world music. Aside from that, Staubgold’s director will present as of yet unpublished material and recordings, a sure treat for the fans.
