Eminent DVD release of three seminal Sudden Infant performances from three different time periods: 2007 Berlin, 2002 Paris and 1996 Taipei. All actions composed and performed by Joke Lanz. Pure classic noise-actionism and physical sound-poetry! Includes four inserts with photo and detailed informations about each performance. Direct mailorder copies (from Sudden Infant or Tochnit Aleph) are signed by the artist! 'An inner motivation causes the sound to find its way out of the body and into the space. Gestural pantomime explains more about this music, coming as it does from a feeling for the body, than words could ever do.'
Played three shows at the Zimmer Tape Festival in Israel: 16th March in Jerusalem at Bass Club, 18th and 19th March in Tel Aviv at Zimmer and Pit/Kit. My first time in Israel started with loads of pleasant moments: warm and sunny weather, excellent food, good beer, the smell of the sea and the sand in my shoes.
Tel Aviv is surprisingly vibrant, dirty, sexy, full of street-art, dog-shit and lovely bars. Exactly my cup of tea!
Massive THANKS to Marion and Sixto of Cave12 for making this all possible and bringing me over. You are both such lovely ghosts; great memories in my mind especially the car-drive back from Jerusalem to Tel Aviv ;) Also big thanks to Ron and Guy who organised the Zimmer Tape Festival, to Grisha who was my host (have a walk in the park!), Mia, Rani, Alma, Eran, Ali and Malcy of Usurper, Yves, Benjamin and Bruno of Blanktapes and all the others (sorry couldn't remember all the names).
