Artist Biographies:

"Olaf Rupp (*1963) plays Improvised Music on the acoustic and electric guitar. The organic flow of his music is controlled neither by chance nor by dominant, wilful decisions. In his music he explores how more or less dense murmurations of notes (motion-clusters) can be perceived as one agglomerated sound in motion. This means that every note is a dot in a higher matrix and its colour is more important than the position of that note in any hierarchic classification system. So a sequence of notes creates a moving sound, not a melody. And the intrinsic colour of every note is more important than the melodic or harmonic burden which the listener may or may not put on it.

Besides many cooperations five solo albums are published so far on the labels FMP, GROB and GLIGG. Olaf Rupp has been touring in many countries and performed with extraordinary musicians such as Paul Lovens, Tristan Honsinger, Peter Brötzmann, Butch Morris, Lol Coxhill, John Zorn und Michael Wertmüller. Important groups are among others XENOFOX, his duo with Rudi Fischerlehner, a Duo with cello player Ulrike Brand, DIE DICKEN FINGER with Oli Steidle and Jan Roder (also a quartet with Peter Brötzmann) and WEIRD WEAPONS with Tony Buck and Joe Williamson."

"Turntablist Joke Lanz creates autonomous sound-cells that melt into a language free of any function. He combines ritual reductionism with anarchistic playfulness, atmospheric soundscapes with cut-up noise and physicalness with unpredictability.

Best known for his international acclaimed Noise project 'Sudden Infant', Joke Lanz is presenting his work since 25 years all over the world. Born in Switzerland and currently operating out of Berlin, he is one of the most prolific and profound artists working in the border zones where performance and body art meet Improvisation and Noise.

Joke Lanz has released his works on some of the most prominent record labels in the noise underground i.e. RRR, Schimpfluch, Tochnit Aleph, Blossoming Noise, Entr'acte, Artware, SSSM, Klanggalerie, Some Bizarre, iDeal Rec and performed with the likes of Peter Kowald, Christian Marclay, Rudolf Eb.er, Z'EV, Carlos Giffoni, Daniel Menche, Christian Weber, Charlotte Hug, Christian Wolfarth, Astro, The New Blockaders, GX Jupitter-Larsen and many more."

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"A room with view: Olaf Rupp is one of the leading figures of Berlin's very lively improviser's scene since years. Following the tradition of consequent improvisation and deep listening, he constantly explores new ways to work with the electric guitar as a tool for musical communication. Xenofox is a hard working Duo project of Rupp and the Berlin- based eclectic drummer Rudi Fischerlehner.

As the very special Trio "Xenofox & Joke Lanz", they present a unique and innovative form of improvised music for the electric guitar, drums and turntables which is highly entertaining and is clearly influenced by trip hop as well as by punk and performance art through the unmistakeable involvement of the Swiss DJ artist and "Sudden Infant" founding member Joke Lanz. Real-time music at its best!"-Text from the program of A L´Arme Festival Berlin 2017



"Combining the spirit and techniques of free jazz interplay with an unsparingly industrial appeal, the result is electrifying. Rupp, Fischerlehner and Lanz are as tight as their jagged-edge playing will allow. When they're not playing off one another, they're crashing into one another. This is what rock and roll should sound like in 2018."Kevin Press/exclaim!



"Rupp, one of the leading figures of Berlin's Echtzeit scene, and Fischerlehner, an excellent Berlin-based drummer, have been playing together under the moniker Xenofox for years. With Swiss DJ artist Joke Lanz on turntables they combined sampling techniques, trip hop influences and freely improvised music. Lanz (...) was an obvious extension for Xenofox. So it was no surprise that they didn't have to warm up and started raging full-on.

Rupp's unique style with a lot of tremolos and arpeggios and Fischerlehner's grooves were attacked by Lanz' provocative intersperses, which created weird and crass beats. But like in the aforementioned concert with Sophie Agnel the band was at their best in the quieter moments, when they created the atmosphere for the more dynamic passages. A really great show."-Martin Schray/freejazzblog.net
