BRÄUNLICH, FLORIAN - SAFE CRASH WITH A PERFORMANCE BY SVEN-AKE JOHANSSON (K7)


"The work "Safe Crash" by visual artist Florian Bräunlich consists of porcelain drumsticks, plastic buckets, a wooden platform, varnish, cymbals, cymbal stands, a floor tom and a spotlight on which the second release of "dispari" is based. A sound recording witnesses Sven-Ake Johansson's performance of Florian Bräunlich's "Safe Crash" at HFBK, Hamburg in September 2020. The moment Johansson begins to play with the porcelain drumsticks, he transfers them into another state. In the course of the performance, the melodic-rhythmic sounds shift perceptibly towards the material exploration of the porcelain. Johansson - a style-defining drummer of the German free jazz era of the 60s and 70s; from the 80s onwards, he pursued an artistic path as a music performer in the circles of fine arts and new music - works out all aspects and parameters of the material's sonority, tries to make the objects audible in their quality. His playing is an immediate response to the sound of the things he is working with... Cardboard box, single sided C-28 cassette, porcelain drumstick splinter, hand-printed letterpress poster, postcards. Edition of 100" (label info)
