LARGE HADRON COLLIDER
Be careful about the particles behaviours inside and around you! A must!
Ives#1 is a project founded in 2007 by Michael Wertmuller (Alboth, Peter Brotzmann Trio), Marino Piaklas (Steamboat Switzerland, Peter Brotzmann Trio), Thomas Mahmoud (ex Von Spar, Oliver Twist Conspiracy) and Gerd Rische. In the early 90s, Swiss drummer Michael Wertmuller and his band Alboth! (that was occasionally produced by Kevin Martin of God, Techno Animal, The Bug) made a benchmark exploration of new terrain somewhere between Metal, Free Jazz and Noise. In the meantime the classically trained multi-instrumentalist plays in Free Jazz trumpeter Peter BrÃ¶tzmannâ€™s Trio and is a much sought after composer, whose works are performed at major New Music festivals. Amongst other things he has collaborated with Wolfgang Hilbig and composed pieces for the legendary Peter Brotzmann Chicago 10tet and for bassist Marino Piaklasâ€™ formation, Steamboat Switzerland. Thomas Mahmoud used to be lead vocalist with the Cologne band, Von Spar, with whom he created a surprising, innovative amalgam of Post-Rock, Indiepop and Prog-Rock before leaving the band after its second album. Mahmoudâ€™s primary interest since launching his solo project, Softgod has been electronic and electro-acoustic music. During a joint artists-in-residency sojourn at the Berlin Academy of Fine Arts, Wertmuller and Piaklas met Gerd Rische, a musician and director of the Academy electronic studio. After Wertmuller had participated, at Thomas Mahmoud's invitation, in the latterâ€™s adaptation of an old Dada screenplay, "Der Pleitejazz" by Paul van Ostaijen, he invited Mahmoud to join in rehearsals with Piaklas and Rische at the Academy. The Winzip file include a Radical Matters package, ready to be print and assemblated. Burn a cd-r with this tracks and make yourself the package.
