I think a yearpass for the Volksbühne would be just what I need. I can take my bike to amazing concerts like this one, and it only takes five minutes. Zeitkratzer made me realize that we are on the right track with scratching, not playing our violins. The sounds are so much more rewarding. But there is so much to learn. A whole new universe of strumming and squeeking, husking and droning sounds. And to play one of these tiny milk foam whisks on the cymbal! I will have to buy one for myself.
It was also a pleasure to watch Keiji Haino master a whole acreage of foot pedals, and to perform a shamanistic dance with two tambourines that he threw and shattered to the effect of little tambourine pieces flying all over and adding their sweet clinks and clanks. But like all good music, most of the concert was best enjoyed with eyes closed.
