SO MUCH SWEEET
A N T O N S I L B E R
(Planeten & Blumen, Dioé)
Anton Silber is ex-resident DJ at the DIRT! Club in the Tanzhalle St Pauli, an organiser of the Dioé – Hamburg Festival of Art and Music, and one of the people behind Planeten & Blumen.
Planeten & Blumen basically works like this: once every quarter, an artist is invited to put on his own disco -cumexhibition under the banner of “Create Your Own Disco” and – always on Fridays – this is then brought to life by DJs, live acts, and the audience.
A mere six months after its opening, Planeten & Blumen was voted one of the ten best clubs in the German-speaking countries by the readers of De:Bug. At the moment, Planeten & Blumen is undergoing reconstruction again.

REDUCTION AND MUSIC
Anna Loog: vinyl, CDs, cassettes; 24, single, shy, positively pessimistic; Bavaria, Vienna, Hamburg; student, accordion dilettante, expert barwoman, and always on a placement somewhere.
(A. Loog talking about A. Loog.)
What’s in store for us if we take up the Festival Club and Fräulein Loog’s invitation to an evening of reduced music? What is reduced music anyway? Where does “a little” start and “reduced” end? Does anything happen at all?
Reduction is presumably a matter of definition: whether we’re talking about electronic or classical minimal music, a load of hissing and crackling committed to vinyl, conventional one-man bands, or tear-jerking, heart-rending, funnybone-tickling songs about leaving and being left. Various Hamburg clubs have already been treated to a taste of this subjective selection: Schilleroper, Astrastube, Egalbar, Nachtasyl, Komet, Marktstube, Ponybar – “First Love, Last
Grooves”, “Smells Like a Fistful of Lonesome Homerun Feelings”, “I Ride my Pony to Melancholy City”.
Anna Loog transforms the clubs into swimming pools brimming with melancholy; Anna Loog serves up tears in whisky glasses; Anna Loog makes time stand still five minutes before chucking out time. In actual fact, she isn’t really a DJ at all. A DJ has skills which he presents; a DJ has beats which make you twitch; a DJ is entertainment. Anna Loog is none of these things. And neither is reduced music. Music played under the strategy of reduction throws you back on yourself and demands your complete attention.
What more could you ask for?

MUVI AWARD 2005

Monday, June 13th, 10:00 pm
On Monday night, DJ RoundTable, the five well-dressed young tykes from the Festival’s special department for playing music anti-clockwise, will again be tabling a yummy mixture of motions.
Their motto this time around can be read as a satirical comment on the situation of the media proletariat in late capitalist society: “Don’t cry – work!”
And to really wrap up the Festival week, we’ll put on a party after the party on Tuesday morning at 7.30 a.m. And yes,you’re all invited.
