Melafesto Reload 11 a

... long time no melafesto. well i still have my old computer but now it is cold enough to do sound
stuff again.

here it is. melafesto 11 [a] ... it works slightly different than the others. it may be the consequence from working different now, recent events, upcoming events and maybe none of that all made me do this one the way it is.

if there is a title for it than it has to be interruptions.

the music used in this melafesto is once again from tanya and the albatros conspiracy. thank you very much.

stay happy

You can see the vlog here.

hm.. once i have a new computer.. or it gets a bit cooler than now.. new melafesto's will be online..

stay happy.

Melafesto # 11

... for once there is a quick update... but dont get used to.. it.. as i dont know when the next will.. be done....

a melafesto against happiness

why that? well.. i was thinking about what happiness is .. and what sense it makes to search for happiness. this term is confused with other mind states way too often. this is the second melafesto ever that is against something. in that case it makes sense. at least i hope that. but i dont want to write too much about it here. as.. well that would be spoiling.


the albatross conspiracy ... any time

edwin starr's h.a.p.p.y radio

a tiny sample from the pixies song where is my mind

and another sample... on a loop of peter licht's sonnendeck

... i was quoting the corous of depeche mode's happiest girl

well.... stay happy

Melafesto #10

... this melafesto was written at the airport in heathrow on the 22nd of may 2006.

a melafesto for waiting rooms

this places are the most bizarre and obscure spaces. filled with lots of distractions or marked by a significant leak of them. waiting is something that is immanent and not really that explicit that often. or maybe it is. i mean i spend quite a lot of time each day.. waiting. for something to happen, finish... for something.. ..... tick tack.. tick tack.. anyway.. i hope you enjoy listening to that one.

Credist for the Music:

a loop out of the first seconds of Radiohead's Talkshow Host
and another sample out of the song.. right before the m'festo finishes

another loop ... out of Fugazi's Waiting Room

also... Beethoven's Moonshine Sonata

i'd be happy about any feedback.. thanks...

.. sorry.. for the delay.. but well.. there was a problem with the id3 tags. and i decided to upload it now.. without them. but soon you'll get the melafesto's with pretty id3 tags.

a melafesto for limited perspectives is online now

this one was inspired once again by my friend mikki... the music used is by

tanya byrne and the albatross conspiracy

and a friend from my digital living room... scratchy photo... which.. well.. doesnt want to have a link .. to his stuff....

i hope the next melafesto will be up soon.... and it will be produced in london.. so.. lets see what this trip inspires me to...

stay happy

Melafesto # 8

a melafesto for applied knowledge

this melafesto was written in a park... sitting in the sunshine... there is no other text than mine used ... like in the last one.

not that there are not enough articles.. books... texts.. written about that topic.. but there was nothing that fitted really good.. nothing i had at my hands quick too.

A main inspiration to this melafesto are my conversations with my friend mikki.. who is teaching at the university to a rather similar topic at the moment. thank you for that.

credits for the music:

the track in the background is from The Albatross Conspiracy called any time

the firstsong is by East Side Soul called alright seriously

the second one is by The Archives called making perfect sense

for your inspiration...

Donna Haraway - Situated Knowledge

Gilles Deleuze - The Logic of the Sense

other than that...

Melafesto #7

... as you had to wait long for the last one.. it didnt take that long for this one...

a melafesto for imaginary friends

it was quite fun to do that one.. and from this melafesto on i will also give credits on here for the stuff i used...

the tune in the background is the begin of "white rabbit" by jefferson airplane...

the song in the middle is "places" by the archives

all the text was written by me...

.....another thing i was thinking about is.. that this blog should not be the meta position to explain why i do the melafestos.. etc... i think it should be the place where i post links that inspired me.. or give credits... but i would really love if you people... write me about your expiriences while listening to that.. or about things you get inspired by it.. if so.... it would be great to.. have them here on this blog.....

links i came across while searching for inspiration....


a website for proving that your imaginary friend is real
