Successful premiere of the new Schaltkreis multimedia live performance in Zurich

On Friday August 29th 08, Zurich saw the premiere of the new Schaltkreis Wassermann multimedia live performance at Informatica08 and Tweakgrill. Stella & PJ have created one hour of new music and visuals. PJ played the Roland VG-99 guitar synthesizer and Stella sang and treated the Korg Kaossillator. Two additional operators for audio and visuals took care of the technical side and the projection on a 3x5 meters LED screen. It was very intense, cosmic and trippy...

Background
"On May 2nd of 2008, my birthday, the phone was ringing and it was Joe Schwyter of Tweakfest who asked me if Schaltkreis Wassermann would like to do a multimedia live performance on Tweakgrill", recalls PJ Wassermann, "and I said yes although I knew that we didn't have any new repertoire, we didn't have any visuals and we had only four months time to create a one hour show and rehearse it all. It was a hell of a job but we did it. Of course our performance wasn't flawless but it worked."

In the meantime Schaltkreis Wassermann had some more gigs and kept on refining their live show. Especially the concert at "Goasys - feed your mind" in the Nordstern club of Basel was a fantastic success. The crowd was dancing and shouting and it was astonishing to see that the 17 years olds went completely crazy about the music and the performance of these electronic veterans from the early 80ies.

SYNCH festival in Athens in June 2009 was the first international exposure and it was very nice - thanks to SYNCH for the invitation!

This is what Stella & PJ say about their Schaltkreis project:

"Although we use two Mac computers on stage (one for backing tracks and one for the visuals) we're not just another laptop band - Stella's far-out live vocals and PJ's driving guitar synth deliver that special magic that only comes out of a real human's live performance. Stella also treats the Korg Kaossillator and the Mini Kaos Pad for special effects while we both play the Korg R3 synthesizer and vocoder.

The visual projections consist partly of pre-produced videos, perfectly synced to the music, and partly of interactive live effects that react to the music being played."
