Concert + Drink

Sonic Garden Party

Depuis 2009, City Sonic propose avec la Sonic Garden Party, une après-midi de performances audio inédites et de concerts intimes dans des jardins privés du jardin du Beffroi (ouverts par leurs propriétaires pour l’occasion) et du centre historique montois. Cette rencontre particulière et conviviale avec les artistes et les hôtes se termine par un apéro City Sonic drink offert.

Cette année le programme sera composé de Catherine Graindorge (violon et chant lancinant), l’improvisateur belge arte povera Timo Van Luyck en duo inédit avec une figure de la musique industrielle et expérimentale allemande Ditterich von Euler-Donnersperg, et enfin, Sébastien Sth Biset (instruments insolites).

Concert Timo Van Luijk (Be) + Ditterich von Euler-Donnersperg (De)

Electro-acoustic live performance with use of speech, objects, acoustic instruments, electronics, modified record players and tape machines.

Ditterich von Euler-Donnersperg is an elusive artist from Hamburg, active as musician, writer, film maker and as controversial politician (Dr. Kurt Euler), chairman of the (fictive) neo-communist party KED. In the mid 70’s, with the arrival of punk and industrial music, he started the underground recordshop Unterm Durchschnitt in Hamburg. He organised numerous concerts in the genre and consequently he founded the label Walter Ulbricht Schallfolien on which he released albums by Throbbing Gristle, SPK, Laibach, Hafler Trio and the illustrious project Werkbund of which he is the administrator.

Since the mid 90’s Donnersperg also does live vocal and electro-acoustic performances consisting of socio-critical poetry rhyme seen through the eyes of the animal kingdom, accompanied with abstract sound. These poetry works he also publishes on small vinyl picturedisks in beautiful handmade portfolios. Throughout the years Donnersperg worked regularly with a.o. Asmus Tietchens and Felix Kubin, two other like minded artists from the mysterious Hamburg scene. Last year he completed his first full length movie ‘Sieg der Vernunft’.
