Ines Birkhan + Bertram Dhellemmes' Ganz Ruhig EP on Smallforms

Last winter, with writer and performer Ines Birkhan, we performed and recorded a piece for guitar, electronics and spoken words at Smallforms in Vienna, that they later released on their label and that you can buy for a ridiculously small amount of money on Apple Music. The piece - Ganz Ruhig (very quiet) - is in German but if you don't understand (I don't), the musicality of it is plenty enough - and there is also an extra instrumental solo piece... 

This is advertisement but c'est la vie.

Eastwood Sidejack Baritone & sitarized First Act Westerberg PW580

I got a First Act Westerberg signature guitar because its outline is brillant and it was very cheap, but to be honest the guitar was unplayable - neck too flat, terrible fretwork and very thin pickup. I had already change the pickup for a GFS P90, put an aluminium pickguard and a nut convertor to play slide but it was still accumulating dust, so I achieved its metamorphosis by putting a new neck and sitar saddles - the same I used for the Doppelcaster - and now I have a unique sitar guitar that I play regularly and hope will use on stage soon. It's still not perfect -  I have to adjust the alignment - but it works very well and  I will eventually upgrade the neck and the pickup again so it can be a reliable concert instrument...  

Next to it is the new Eastwood Sidejack Baritone guitar I got for my last birthday - I am very fond of my Danelectro Longhorn Baritone but its lipstick pickups have a narrow register, so I wanted to explore further the possibilities of baritones, and I'm not disappointed... I didn't like the white pickguard so I made a black one - first time I make one out of plastic, not as nice as metal but easier to do... Already used it for my last concert - photos and videos will come soon I hope.

Dirty Primitives strike again

A new song by my incredibly talented friends of Dirty Primitives, who seem to invent a new style of music every few months - this one would be Swamp Glam and I love it.

Dhellemmes / Reardon in Sound Pharmacy, Vienna

Free improvisation duo Dhellemmes / Reardon will perform for the Sound Pharmacy performance series on January 25th. 

The Sound Pharmacy is an interactive art-object-installation. Visually combining antique pharmacy interiors with sound-sculptures that interpret alchemist healing instruments and rituals. During the opening hours of the Sound Pharmacy the psycho-physical-pharmacists perform and create transcendent sound-potions to enhance frequency-noise-aromatic trans-states. 

For this 3 hours set, expect more electronics and soundscapes than in our usual sets, and inevitably new material, on top of intense piano/guitar creative duelling.

Schönbrunner Straße 6
1040 Wien
Wednesday 25 January, 19:00-22:00
