Work by Delta inspired by DJ MaceJanuary 27nd 2012 the exposition SEE-A-SOUND’ was openend at bkkc, Tilburg. SEE-A-SOUND is an interdisciplinary project in which ten acclaimed autonomous designers and an equal number of talented producers/DJ’s teamed up to produce an exhibition and accompanying vinyl record. The ten serigraphs and musical compositions are on display in the exhibition hall at the bkkc, until April 20, 2012.

DJ’s Mace and Optimus (Fremdkunst/Fremdtunes) will perform for this project at the Paradox(Tilburg, NL) on March 30. They team up with keyplayer Wiboud Burkens and saxophone player Joris Posthumus to do an adventurous impro-show.

We are proud to present you a brand new Fremdkunst release! ‘

‘O sweet schwein of mine’ is another free download EP by Fremdkunst. This 6-track EP is part of ‘Zauberschwein im krankenhaus’, a series of EP’s on which DJ Mace, Optimus, Vindictiv and special guests (Nicolas Kummert & René Everts amongst others) are exploring the outer-limits of the nihilistic Fremdkunst-universe.

Direct downloadlink: http://fremdtunes.bandcamp.com/album/o-sweet-schwein-of-mine

‘O sweet schwein of mine’ is produced with the help of a variety of instruments like the Technics sl1200, Akai s2800, Fender Rhodes, Cubase, Ableton, Serato, Korg MS-50 & monotron, Roland Juno 106 & 6, Korg Poly-800, SP12, MPC, Yamaha Portasound, saxophone, effect-pedals and an old tape-recorder. Inspiration comes from the works of F. Scott Fitzgerald, Sofia Coppola, Model 500, Daedelus, Doe Maar, Oddissee, Nite Jewel, Jay McInerney, D.A.F., Clifford Brown, Max Stirner, Mulatu Astatke, Tangerine Dream, Hans Otte, Wagon Christ, Thomas Mann, DJ Premier, Sabrina and Halbe Zijlstra.

Alotofnews concerning Fremdkunst: first of all…Fremdtunes – the series 2 (various artists EP ft Fremdkunst, Devastate, Optimus ft Prince Po, Jameszoo & Vindictiv) is out now on vinyl and as download! An absolute must-have for those who like beats, jazz, funk and electronics. Also, DJ Optimus will release his debut CD this monday: it’s called ‘Double Helix DNA’ and features different guest artists like El da Sensei, Prince Po, iET and Rasco.

Allthough we planned to perform as little as possible (so we could prepare new music and a new show),  we couldn’t let this one go: Fremdkunst will perform at Onderstroom/Vlissingen with keyplayer Jeroen van Vliet (Gatecrash, Sikeda, Estafest) and saxophoneplayer Mete Erker (Estafest) on Thursday the 7th of July. We’ll probably have some live art ‘on the spot’ too, so…don’t miss this one! More ‘artstuff’: Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen used Fremdkunst music on their Arttube for the exposition of ‘The one and the many’: http://arttube.boijmans.nl/nl/video/the-one-the-many-nl/.

To finish the post: here’s a preview of a track that will appear on ‘O sweet schwein of mine’: the follow up of ‘Zauberschwein im krankenhaus’. Enjoy!
