She is currently recording her debut LP at studios in Los Angeles, Berlin, and Porto.

Wayne Snow // Fishtank Session

Sorry, this entry is only available in German. For the sake of viewer convenience, the content is shown below in the alternative language. You may click the link to switch the active language.

Noize Fabrik presents: #FishtankSessions with Berlin-based nu-soul artist Wayne Snow.

WHEN: Wednesday 13th, 20:00
WHERE: Noize Fabrik, Elsenstrasse 52, 3.OG

Nigerian singer and songwriter Wayne Snow lives in Berlin where his ability quickly fell into fertile ground.
Among other things, he drew attention to himself by collaborating with the jazz and club musician Max Graef, the Italo-Berlin fusion jazz band Mop Mop, the Italo-Berlin club band Nu Guinea and the Parisian producers Neue Grafik and Darius.
With his soul-soaked psychedelic vocal performance he managed to impress his unmistakable stamp on these different projects. After his solo EPs ‘Red Runner’ and ‘Rosie’, his debut album ‘Freedom TV’ will be released on Tartelet Records, the Danish label, which also includes Brandt Brauer Frick.

The Noize Fabrik #FishtankSessions are live recording sessions open to a limited audience that focus on obtaining optimal audio and film recordings of the artist’s performance. The session is documented by a crew of filmmakers and audio professionals and by entering the space attendees agree to be filmed. We ask the audience to keep from talking or moving in-between songs, and no alcohol is allowed in the performance space during the show. Since the focus of these sessions is the content creation, some songs might be performed more than once or until the artist is comfortable with their performance.

Vintage Gear in Digital Studios

**Vintage Gear in Digital Studios – How to Use Analogue Equipment Properly**

AKG C12, EMT 140, Neumann U47, Telefunken V76, Studer C37… The list of legendary pieces of studio equipment Made in Germany… Austria… Switzerland that sell for considerable sums on the second hand market could fill many pages…

If at all, many younger sound engineers and interested amateurs only know about this gear by hearsay. Publications such as Recording the Beatles as well as countless YouTube videos and Internet forums contribute to this hype, while there is not really that much hands-on experience in using these objects of desire.

The audio equipment industry reacts to this hard to satisfy demand for working and affordable historic audio kit by producing ‘vintage gear’ that claims to have the same properties as the genuine article.
But what really were and are the properties of tube amplifiers, transistor-based mix desks, audiotape (and vinyl records) compared to the digital technologies?

But which of all of these – and what skills – are necessary for an emerging studio/engineer and how do you integrate these old or pretend-old treasures into your existing technical equipment? What are the issues that come along with buying decade-old equipment and who can help? Are there really inexpensive alternatives to the well-known ‘dinosaurs’?

This course is an introduction to working with vintage and modern analogue equipment.
It is meant to give participants the necessary skills to
independently assess new and vintage equipment and understand the technical specifications of the manufacturer when it comes to the quality and the condition when buying it
properly integrate it into already existing analogue and digital equipment

The goal is to use existing equipment, images and sound recordings as well as handouts to close any knowledge gaps on the functionality of analogue studio equipment and its history in a vivid and practical manner.
The course has four three-hour modules that will take place inside of one week, the same each day, one in mid-morning and one in the evening.

Tickets:
Before 31st May: 120€
After 31st May: 150€

About the instructor:
Stefan Peetz was born in Frankfurt am Main in 1968 and has been living in Berlin since 1996. He first encountered electronic media during a student internship at the German Broadcasting Archive (Deutsches Rundfunkrachiv) in 1982. This set the stage for an early career as an author and presenter, mostly in radio broadcasts of the Hessischer Rundfunk. At the same time, he was involved in studio and audio measuring equipment (setting up and reconditioning of studio equipment) and until 2001 was a technician for broadcasters, private sound studios and universities (film sound) as well as record labels. He has since then produced a number of music recordings as well as restoring historic recordings of all genres. Since 2000, he has been engaged in the production of audiobooks in various roles (narrator, director, sound engineer). Since 2013, he is responsible for the studio equipment at the Studio am Zollhaus, Berlin.
His intellectual and artistic interests covered among others: the study of philology at the universities in Frankfurt/Main and Berlin as well as training as an actor since 2004 (certified in 2007 by ZAV Berlin) and continues to work as a narrator and actor.

Kritikdesign im echten Leben

Am Donnerstag dem 24.05.2018 um 20:00Hin der NoizeFabrik/Berlin – “Im echten Leben- Kritikdesign Lesung”. Anschließende Diskussion, nach den heissgelaufenen Argumenten dann ein wenig Musik im unteren db-Bereich zum Ausklang.

Polemik, Epistel bis hin zum ungerecht, gewichteten Essay des Kritikdesigns ist Inhalt dieses Veranstaltungsformates der NoizeFabrik (Elsenstrasse 52/Neukölln-Berlin). Vor der Sommerpause geht es um Episteln zum Volksbühnendesaster und die neurolinguistische Spindoktorei der angstzerfressenen Politeliten und ihrer Speichellecker vom rechtsdrehenden Kulturmanager-Rand der sich pseudolinksintellektuell gebärdet…

Gelesen wird in Deutsch und Englisch.

Der Schmutzige-Epistel-Reiter liest Deutsch (oder was er dafür hält), Malte Forstat übersetzt in die englische Sprache.

Den Smombie-Brauchtum unserer Tage Rechnung tragend, wird es keine elend, lange Lesung. Es gibt diesmal mehrere Texte, die vorgetragen werden.

KUNZTBONUS: > zu sehen: “Als wir noch fliegen konnten – ein Tafelbild….”

[english] – Übersetzt und vorgetragen von Malte Forstat.

On Thursday the 24.05.2018 / 20:00H at NoizeFabrik / Berlin there will be the next edition of “In real life – KritikDesign reading”. Subsequent discussion, after the hot arguments then a little music in the lower db range to the end. Polemics epistles and the unfair weighted essay of the critic design is content of this new event format of the NoizeFabrik (Elsenstrasse 52 / Neukölln-Berlin). Reading in German and English.

The pamphleteer reads two or three sentences the translator [Malte Forstat] translates into English. Taking into account the smartphone-zombie-times we all life in it will not be a miserable long reading. On 24.05.2018 two Kritikdesigns will be presented.
