FELIX KUBIN & COOLHAVEN - SUPPE FÜR
Korm Plastics is proud to present the eleventh release in the Brombron series. Originally a co-production between Staalplaat and Extrapool, it is now hosted by co-curator Frans de Waard. In the year 2000 Frans de Waard and Extrapool started the Brombron project. Two or more musicians become artists in residence in Extrapool, an arts initiative in Nijmegen, The Netherlands, with a fully equipped sound recording studio. These artists can work in a certain amount of time on a collaborative project; a project they always wished to do, but didn't have the time or the equipment to realize. Since 2002 Worm, a Rotterdam based music organisation, is also taking part in Brombron and this new release is the first to emerge out of their studios
Many years ago, Felix Kubins uncle Walter
Knoth was looking for a composer to musically illustrate some
of his old-fashioned brilliant Schlager texts. Naturally, his
first choice was his own nephew Felix - but obviously this young
guy did not have the versatile qualities to manage such a thing
on his own.
Due to budget reasons the musicians were
only given a period of one week to work on their songs in a dirty
old studio in Rotterdam (Studio L6S - For All Your Special Projects).
Nevertheless, the hyperactive quartett managed to record about
18 hours of rough material which was finally melted down to 42
minutes of sheer brilliance. Under the influence of strange instruments,
dusty corners and atmospheric pain, the recording resulted in
a fruitful mixture of German Weirde Welle, Optagonism, Conservative
HipHop, Stockhausen Schläger, No Improv Mixing and Gabberpop.
The mixing was done in long sessions (the longest being 36 hours)
where everybody could have his say. Thats why it took 18 months
to release the bitch. But here she is; Suppe Für Die Nacht.
Have some. And don't ask questions.
