Desertfest Berlin Final Announcements: My Sleeping Karma Movie, Aurelio Deville Live Painting and MorePosted in Whathaveyou on April 15th, 2013 by H.P. Taskmaster
Friday tickets for the Berlin-held Desertfest have apparently sold out, but there’s still room for Thursday and Saturday. At the end of last week, the fest announced three movies they’ll be showing in addition to the performances, and a live painting to be done by French graphic artist Aurelio Deville.
These mark the last announcements for the 2013 Desertfest Berlin, so I’ll say quickly thanks and it’s been fun keeping up with the updates (or trying, anyway), and that if you’re lucky enough to wind up at the Astra Kulturhaus from April 25-27, it’s sure to be a killer time. Here’s how they have it on the Desertfest Berlin website:
AURELIO DEVILLE (FR)
Today we are proud to present to you a multidisciplinary French artist who will come to DESERTFEST to paint a fresco in live, on the Theatre Bizarre’s walls : AURELIO DEVILLE. As you may have noticed, the Theatre Bizarre will receive several kinds of events during the festival. Sheyk Raleph will bring his orientasian improvisations. We will show 3 movies whose the first one has already been presented few days ago. Now it’s time for you to get to know AURELIO DEVILLE, that you will be able to see painting a fresco in live on Friday and Saturday (15h40 – 21h).
BEYOND THE INFINITE (CH)
We are extremely proud to welcome at Desertfest Berlin the WORLD PREMIERE of Sandro Müntener’s “BEYOND THE INFINITE” !!
On Friday 26th and Saturday 27th, you will be able to enjoy a selection of three movies in the Theatre Bizarre. We already introduced to you the first one : LAST HIPPIE STANDING (17h – 45min). Here is the second one : BEYOND THE INFINITE – A Journey Into European Underground Rock Music (21h40 – 53min).
“If you make Rock music and smoke weed, then you get Stoner Rock, that’s basically it.”
Nothing more to add ? Well, Sandro Müntener’s BEYOND THE INFINITE does. Not by pigeonholing a musical style or trying to explain everything out there. But by drawing a portrait of a vivid underground community going its own way. It’s not only a film about music, but about dedicated people all over Europe wanting to create something all together.
We are very proud to welcome this world premiere at DESERTFEST BERLIN, and really happy to get you a chance to see this documentary as it’s really a great piece !
MY SLEEPING KARMA – A TOUR VIDEO (GER)
Here we are. This is the last announcement for the DESERTFEST BERLIN, but not the least ! We are proud to present you Tim Bohnenstingl’s “MY SLEEPING KARMA – A TOUR VIDEO” !!
On Friday 26th and Saturday 27th, you will be able to enjoy three movies, and you already know two of them : LAST HIPPIE STANDING (17h – 45min) and BEYOND THE INIFNITE (21h40 – 53min). Here is the last one : MY SLEEPING KARMA – A TOUR VIDEO (19h40 – 20min) !
This 20 minute tour documentary was filmed over six days on tour, following My Sleeping Karma non stop. Hamburg, Paris, London, Manchester, Stuttgart. It focuses on the live shows, but also allows the audience to experience one day of a normal band on the road : Driving long distances, soundchecks, press interviews, photoshootings, load outs, jamming and just being yourself. All this is combined with interviews by the band commenting on the tour life and the “Flow” which My Sleeping Karma are kind of famous for in the underground scene.
Seppi, Steffen, Matte and Normen finally playing the Desertfest, months after their tour with Monster Magnet, makes this the perfect opportunity to present the video to all of you guys out there.
“It’s was not only a pleasure and honour to be on tour with Monster Magnet, the band which brought me to the so called Stoner Rock, but much more so: My Sleeping Karma, one of the bands which still keeps me so interested in this flourishing genre. I had a lot of fun with the nicest people, I hope you will too while watching the movie. I feel very lucky that the movie will be screened and I am looking forward to meet you and talk about: My Sleeping Karma – A Tour Video”. Tim, stonerrock.eu
