Japan / Taiwan 2011 - CANCELLED!


I'm very sad to announce that the whole Sudden Infant / Pain Infant dates in Japan and Taiwan (26th March - 15th April) are cancelled.

After thoughtful consideration and consultation with my close friends in Japan and the Swiss and German embassies, I decided to cancel the whole Sudden Infant / Pain Infant tour including the one off show in Taipei and to postpone it for an indefinite period of time.

Major transportation problems, power cuts and an insecure course of life caused by the terrible earthquake, tsunami and the damaged nuclear plant in Fukushima wouldn't guarantee a proper tour and an easygoing stay in Japan especially in the greater area of Tokyo.

Furthermore I think with due respect for the victims and their relatives it is not appropriate to tour Japan right now in its worst crisis since 65 years.

My thoughts are with my friends and colleagues and everybody in Japan. I really hope, from the bottom of my heart, that you all can recover from this traumatic event and that the crisis will be overcome.

Special thanks go to Kohei Gomi aka Pain Jerk for his great work and effort in preparing the whole tour.

My thoughts are with everybody in Japan especially all my friends and colleagues.
Just finished preparations for my upcoming tour through Japan and Taiwan and now I feel shaken to the core about this incredible crisis. Really hope things will settle down and everybody's able to recover. I'm still very much looking forward to perform and meet my friends: Kohei, Martin, Rudolf, Hiroshi and many others.

Festival Cable#4 - Nantes

Played for the very first time in Nantes at Festival Cable#4 (17th - 19th Feb).
Really nice venue (Les Ateliers de Bitche), great soundsystem, cool audience and an amazing team will definitely stay in my memory department for a very long time.
Met some good old friends and familiar faces: Luke Younger, Thomas Ankersmit, eRikm.
Big thanks to Will Guthrie and his mates for the fantastic organisation.

One of my personal highlights on the night was Damien Schultz' spoken word performance. Absolutely breathtaking! Just him with a microphone and his lyric sheets turning into some trancelike speech-monster pacing an incredible speed with his mouth. No effects, no sampling!

Instants Chavirés

live in Montreuil/Paris 17th February 2011

Instants Chavirés in Montreuil, a suburb in the east of Paris, is definitely one of the best places to perform in Europe. The venue is located on a side street behind the main office and exhibition space of Instants Chavirés, just around the corner of many north african shops and restaurants, where you can eat the best cous-cous on the continent.

Review of the night (in French):

Thanks again to the fantastic team of Instants: Florence, jf, Thierry, Damien, Benjamin. Had a great time, once again.
