缘起
第一次见到阿克瑟·多诺时,我才刚开始尝试即兴音乐。那是2007年的Moers 音乐节,我们在一个教堂里演出,像是暗黑破坏神的一个副本。
两年后我参加了大友良英的FEN乐队,首演是在马塞的MIMI音乐节。早餐时阿克瑟出现了,穿着一件旧西装,胡子拉碴,手里捏着一个盒子,好像是弱音器,那是他的关键乐器。大友和他是好朋友。我们聊了一会儿奥运会。
第三次是2012年5月,柏林。那天晚上,柏林有14场实验音乐演出(当代即兴也划在实验类里),但我们演出的小画廊还是挤满了人。阿克瑟是最后一个,12点多了。有的观众已经喝高了,摇摇欲坠,但克制着自己,没发出一点声音。他坐在中间,几乎不动,精神凝聚的样子,用循环换气法持续吹气。各种气息摩擦小号的声音。声音的细节。没有乐音的音乐。最后是长时间的掌声。
我们喜欢对方的演奏,相约演一次二重奏。第二天还是第三天,机会来了,他得到确认,要来北京。
这时候的北京,已经有一些人在演奏类似的音乐。兼收并蓄的"水陆观音"已经结束,我现在策划的演出,叫"密集"。一种浓缩和提炼。经常合作的几个乐手,组成了"即兴委员会"。北京仍然是混合的,热情的,我们并不缺少观众。如果说欧洲人有他们的理由,去演奏用来聆听的音乐,那么我们也有我们的理由,去对自身和环境作出反应。
各位观众,我们来听你们了。

刘心宇
09年开始自己的吉他独奏计划,从与乐手的即兴合作到后来在简洁的音乐表达里摸索出自己的演奏方式。他抛弃旋律上的概念,以制造各类声音声响之间的细微变化或不变为根本,致力于创作毫无意义的极简声响。包括现在的”致命摇篮死“也总能以莫名其妙的方式置人于死地。

October 2nd; pm 8:00 door open; pm 8:30 concert start sharp
venue: 2Kolegas Bar; ticket: 60rmb

origin:
i have organized hundreds of concerts. most time i hold shows for artists from all conners of the world. they are friends of friends. they play noise, impro music, experimental, free jazz, industrial, indie electronica, free rock, algorithm music and everything.
after years, today, i work with friends for organize only several concerts a year. i’m still interesting on everything. but i’m more interesting on something. i want to keep focus on the most touchable and most powerful music of my perspective. i think everything has its power. i’d like to work on the things triggers others’ power.
since i know Axel Dörner and his music, i have been playing improvised music for just few years. but it means a lot for me. i was changed a lot. i know why people like his music and this kind of music. it’s not about to make people drunk or weave a dream of the other shore. it’s about sounds themselves and people themselves, and now.
people call it free music. from 60’s to today the technics, the instruments, the concepts are always changing. but it’s still a nice name.
