mxtronica site

I didn't find this one before, my fault ofcourse, but here it is..
The official MXtronica site, with a fun flash pictureshow of UW.
Also there is an interview with Karl here.
One of the questions is, which vocalist he would want to work with. Answer CLODAGH SIMOND
of Fovea Hex.
His 3 fav records of the moment:
1. Captain Beefheart “Tropical Hot Dog Night”
2. Jimmy Hendrix “Voodoo Child”
3. Martha & The Vandellas “Dancing in the street”
But he could go on and on and...
What is his favorite live track? Karl hasn't one, he likes the vibe of the concert and the crowd.

There is an picture page with promo pix by Perou.

Helsinki reports and stuff

Back from the Helsinki concert and mini holiday..
We did make it into the Helsinki concert, but couldn't go to the one in Tallinn. Due to the bad weather there weren't any boats sailing there. :(
The Helsinki concert was relocated to a smaller place because of the low number of tickets sold. This relocation to Stockholm Diskotek worked out great. It was very loud... but at times the crowd was even louder! :o)

Some links to reactions etc. Some in finnish.

cocoon report

I'm back home!
After an horrible journey to frankfurt due to train trouble etc... I got at cocoon 10 minutes or so before Underworld got on stage. So I missed the dirty meeting :( sorry, I did all I could to make it in time but the train trouble was just to much.

Great show!!!! This needs to be done again somewhere, somewhen, somehow.
3.5 hours of new/old/improv/classics/madness.
I'll write more when I have time :)

I hope you all were able to watch the stream, I was told that at one point 15.000 people were watching!

Apple Quicktime newsletter

Matt at dirty/board recieved the Apple Quicktime newsletter with this in it:
Apple have set this out to all Quicktime Newsletter Subscribers:

"On October 12, pioneers of the jam and conquerors of festival crowds Underworld and master of the dance-floor and one of the world’s finest DJs Sven Vath will join forces for a once-in-a-lifetime live broadcast event from Cocoon Club in Frankfurt.

Cocoon Club was conceived as an avant-garde field experiment for transforming space and perception. As such it provides the ideal backdrop for this collaboration which extends to all aspects of the show’s production — Underworld, Sven, the space, crowd, light, film, sound and Internet.

The event represents a new concept for live music experiences. How will it actually work and what will they actually do? You’ll need to tune in to this special 3-hour live performance, exclusively in QuickTime, to find out."

Thnx for the info.

new toy

With the upcoming tour and dirty.org meetings, I had to have a new mobilephone. My old one was a siemens C55 which even didn't have a colo(u)r screen. My new one is the Sony-Ericsson K800i.
It not only has a colo(u)r screen but also is an 3.2 meg cybershot picturemakingmachine, loads of whistles and bells you never dreamed of to have in a mobile phone etc... And you can use it as phone too, great.
First thing I did when I got the software running on my pc was uploading my own background to it. Yep, the Cocoon gig poster :o)
