FACTOR 44 & FILMS LUDO MICH

Audiobot = A rusted nail in music's coffin ... Brains coming out of the ear, the skull with the dagger through. Death, gore and dismemberment you know, the whole type of go for it type of thing, ... after all that's what Audiobot is all about.

Ultra Eczema = Boiling puddle of multiple dimensions, reflected from the unsane brain of Dennis Tyfus. A vicious brother that's one step away from serving you a mutilated rat. Take cover ...


concerts:

CAN’T (US)

Can’t aka brainchild of Jessica Rylan. She plays analog synthesizers, sometimes she uses rhythm boxes and distortion pedals, and sings and dances. She tells stories too... It’s an intensely personal investigation of being alive in the instant. The main focus of her work to date has been the design and construction modular synthesizers which use analog electronic circuits to create a diversity of sounds. Also active in Secret Diary with Donna Parker, Perpetual Enemies with Vanessa Brewster (Mr. Uterus), Vampire Can’t with Vampire Belt (Chris Corsano and Bill Nace) and Dirty Dynamite Gang with Spencer Yeh (Burning Star Core) and John Olson (Wolf Eyes).

MAURO ANTONIO PAWLOWSKI (B)
Half human. Half chameleon. Throughout the years Mauro Antonio Pawlowski has built a fortress of alienating songs, that suffocate the listener and feel like the entire building can crumble down on you. Two seconds later he’s already whistling a ballad on the green side of the tracks... Howling beans at the cross, and burning David Bowie, Queen and Elvis Presley records for a black Europe..

FRED VAN HOVE (B)
Fred Van Hove was party responsible for ‘Machine Gun’, a highly influential piece of improv from ‘68, blasted with Brötzmann, Bennink, Parker, Kowald en Johansson. Despite numerous problems he put the European improv scene back in the spotlights with the annual Free Music Festival. He rarely performs solo in Belgium so this is a unique oppurtunity to get blown away by the man’s fire music soul.

TAURPIS TULA (SCOT)

Taurpis Tula from Glasgow, Scotland is Heather Leigh - (Charalambides and Scorces) on pedal steel / vocals and David Leigh - on guitar, navigating rivers of steel string with their fists and throats. Their all-improvised music works loops of spectral sound into beautifully fucked tonal hymns. Having played primarily as a duo since their formation in 2003 Taurpis Tula now is a powerful trio with the addition of free-form drummer Alex Neilson of Jandek / Directing Hand fame. Far from creating a more controlled or arranged sound, Neilson has freed the band even further from the constraints of structure. Steel Rods Bruise Butterflies, is Taurpis Tula's first CD-R as a trio and is out on Chocolat Monk...

ORPHAN FAIRYTALE + CASSIS CORNUTA (B)

Eva Van Deuren drags the listener into her downwards spiral of melancholy, spontaneity, weirdness and childlike simplicity. Unleashing an aura that simply glows in the dark. With upcoming releases on Ultra Eczema, Not Not Fun and Open Mouth. Antwerp’s most infamous cacti and hat (randomly designed with shattered glass to keep the evil spirits away) collector Cassis Cornuta aka Daniël Renders is fascinated by analog synth noise, tape-loops and bizarre field recordings. Imagine Frieder Butzmann eating peyote with Steven Stapleton inside a microwave... This duo set can swing in all directions.

PUTREFIER (UK)

Mark Durgan has been melting his obsessions in glorious noise grit since the ‘80s. Inspired by Bristol’s darkest pubs, industrial tension, b/w lust from the Come/Broken Flag era and social discomfort. Keeping a low-profile has enabled Putrefier to work at his own pace and keeping to his own vision. His recordings have turned up on labels such as Broken Flag, Artware, MSBR, RRR and more.

BEN REYNOLDS / JOHN W. FAIL
UNCABINETED DUO (UK)

Ben Reynolds, another fascinating solo guitarist/improviser/noise/psychedelic music composer based in the city of Glasgow. Reynolds work is well-documented on labels such as Ikuisuss, Memoirs Of An Aesthete, Time-Lag and 267 Lattajjaa while Fail has dabbled in myriad projects including lied music, intro to pterodactyl and land. ranging from screaming acoustics to dirgy fuzzfests, the real document is that of experience, joy and camaraderie.

+ THE HARBINGER SOUND PLASTIC PUNK EXPLOSION (UK)

Broken out of a window in hell, The Harbinger Sound mechanics twist your arm 360° and show you what real punks are made of ... Bloody, sweaty classics from the glorious punk/hardcore era before ‘84. Mix that with an endless tank of beer and you’re halfway there.

exhibition:

FACTOR 44
Factor 44 is an amalgamation of two exhibition spaces, ‘Inexistent’ (1987-92) and ‘Quarantine’ (1992-95) operating in Antwerp. In 1995 two derelict buildings situated in Borgerhout were bought and (partially)renovated until 1996,- when the first exhibition opened that year, only half of the renovations were finished. The name ‘Factor 44’ was given during the foundation-meeting of a loose grouping of artists (as a gathering of ‘Fifty-Fifty) on July 14th 1996 (le quatorze Juillet) After the initial inauguration, we set about presenting various kinds of projects, classic exhibitions (aprox 4 p/a) and our regular monthly ‘Jour Fixe’ (every last wednesday of the month except december...). Factor 44 occasionally presents itself as a group in various locations... depending on circumstances, interest and willingness, Factor 44 could be anyone, anywhere..

LUDO MICH

Ludo Mich is a painter, sculptor, holographer, musician, performance artist and fluxus associate best known for the series of hysterical films he made in the sixties and seventies, especially :Lysistrata(1975) , an adaption of Aristophanes’ satirical poetic comedy into a strictly personal ludic burlesque. All actors perform naked. This was due not simply to the budget being too small to accommodate the appropriate costumes and regalia; Ludo Mich also intended to use his particularity to heighten the impact of Aristophanes’ anarchistic ideas.
