AUTOLUMINESCENT by Richard Lowenstein and Lynn-Maree Milburn | Berlin Premiere

“Rowland was Australia’s most unique, gifted and uncompromising guitarist.” – Nick Cave

From myth to legend Rowland Howard appeared on the early Melbourne punk scene like a phantom out of Kafkaesque Prague or Bram Stoker’s Dracula. A beautifully gaunt and gothic aristocrat, the unique distinctive fury of his guitar style shot him directly into the imagination of a generation. He was impeccable, the austerity of his artistry embodied in his finely wrought form, his obscure tastes and his intelligently wry wit. He radiated a searing personal integrity that never seemed to tarnish. Despite the trials and tribulations of his career, in an age of makeover and reinvention, Rowland Howard never ‘sold out’.

With recent and moving interviews, archival interviews and other fascinating and original footage, AUTOLUMINESCENT traces the life of Rowland S Howard. Capturing moments with the man himself and intimate missives from those who knew him behind closed doors; words and images etch light into what has always been the mysterious dark.

Dim Locator (AUS/UK) is a new group formed from the ashes of legendary Berlin-based band Fatal Shore. The group comprises Phil Shoenfelt (guitar/vocals), Chris Hughes (drums/percussion) and Dave Allen (bass guitar). Special guest: Gez Donnelly (guitar)

Englishman Phil Shoenfelt has lived in Prague for many years, and is known for his work with Southern Cross (Prague), Fatal Shore (Berlin) and Khmer Rouge (New York), as well as for his autobiographical novel “Junkie Love”, recipient of the Firecracker Alternative Book Award in New York. To date, Shoenfelt has released 15 full length CDs of his music – solo, with Khmer Rouge, with Southern Cross, with Fatal Shore and with Nikki Sudden. In the past, he has toured as support artist with Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, The Fall, Crime & The City Solution, Nico, The Clash and Tom Verlaine. He also played lead guitar in The Nikki Sudden Band on two European tours in 1997 and 1998.

Chris Hughes (AUS) is based in Berlin and has played and recorded with Fatal Shore, Hugo Race & The True Spirit, The Act, Methylated Spirits, Nina Hagen and Rowland S. Howard. His most recent collaboration was with Alexander Hacke of Einstürzende Neubaten in Hacke’s new project Hitman’s Heel. He was part of the same Melbourne scene that spawned the likes of The Birthday Party and Crime & The City Solution, and is known for his explosive style of syncopated drumming. Several of his compositions appeared on the True Spirit CDs “Wet Dream” and “Ambuscado”, and he has recently been composing film soundtrack music for Ralf Goldkind’s label.

Dave Allen (AUS) is also based in Berlin, and has played bass with Hugo Race & The True Spirit, Lunar Lounge, Methylated Spirits, The Act, and Kinch Blade & The Black Lilies. Originally from Sydney, Allen moved to Berlin in the early 1990s, and his rock steady bass playing style complements and anchors Chris Hughes’s wild, improvisatory excursions.

MUSICAL STYLE: The music of Dim Locator is stripped down industrial psych-rock music with influences from The Stooges, Beasts of Bourbon, Can, The Birthday Party, Pink Fairies and Hawkwind. This deliberate mixing of radically different styles and genres intentionally avoids the identikit, music-by-numbers style of so many contemporary bands, who simply adopt the image and sound of their idols, and whose originality suffers accordingly. The music itself uses randomly sampled and re-sampled loops, a pulsating, electric sound that creates a kind of hypnotic “Ur-Drone”, stimulating what Iggy Pop once referred to as the “O Mind”.

RECORDING NEWS: In late 2011 a three song tribute EP of Rowland S. Howard songs was released, for online sales only. The EP is called “Immortalised” and is available through Bremen-based label Fuego. Two of these songs, “I Ate The Knife” and “Undone”, will be released as a 7 inch single by Vienna based label Cover Recordings.



Fri 08 | 6 pm, exhibition


Special guest: Photographer and Prague DJ Ida Taušlová will play a mix of new music that has been strongly influenced by the ‘80s, linking the period of ‘80s to the present time of 2013.

Prague DJ Ida T (Ida Taušlová) is a member of the DJ duo “Pandas in Waterfall”. She founded this duo along with her good friend Zuzana, who share a similar interest in music. Their original intention was to bring a different musical experience to their home town. This was then followed by organising regular events. Ida and Zuzka both have their own original style, which works quite well together in their music DJ events. Zuzka mainly focuses on electro pop and Ida is generally influenced by the era of 80’s and the early 90s and raw aggressive synths. Ida’s obsession with these decades are not only reflected in the music that she plays, but this also happen to be a major influence on her sense of fashion and style. This can be seen in the fashion photos that she takes and does the styling for. Working mostly with analogue photography, she explores and captures her unique vision of fashion, street photography and portraits. Ida links together music, fashion and photography from the ’80s and early ’90s and connects it all together to what is happening now in our present time 2013.

Dance, performance, music and the power of rhythm enter into a combination with film and poetry and reveal the joys and miseries of life. A bubbling elixir that bewitches even the protagonists themselves.

about ZEBRA Poetry Film Festival

Film and poetry are like the white and black stripes of a zebra: they fit together beautifully. Every two years the ZEBRA Poetry Film Festival shows the current state of a dynamic, young short film genre which lies somewhere between poetry, film and new media. The festival offers both makers of poetry films and poets themselves from around the world a forum for fixing positions as well as exchanging ideas and experience – an ever growing group of fans of a genre which has won over even the most suspicious and sceptical in the audience. A comprehensive supporting programme with retrospectives, colloquia and talks complements the competition, which is unique worldwide.

presents works by Heiko Daxl and Ingeborg Fülepp

In 1990 Heiko Daxl and Ingeborg Fülepp together founded the label Media in Motion. From that time on, they worked together on various media art projects as artists and curators. One of their main tasks was to connect international artists to one another and to show their works internationally, with particular focus on Germany and Croatia. After Heiko Daxl passed away in 2012, Ingeborg Fülepp continued their work independently.

The program will show videos made by Heiko Daxl before they met as well as productions they subsequently brought into being as an artistic couple.

The aim of this presentation is to show the multiple talents of Heiko Daxl, his understanding of the media as well as his prowess and creative potentials through the execution of numerous works of art, written texts on art and its attendant philosophy.

In leaving our world, Heiko is on the way to discover another, as yet unknown universe. At least, having known him, one might hope this to be true. Throughout his artistic works, he was always searching for something beyond our realities.

Experience is nothing else than change of memory… By manipulation of images and montage in relation to the musical composition, there are points for thoughtful excursions, roundabouts, dreams, curves, imaginations and lost memories. But the continuance of transitoriness keeps its familiar riddle.” Heiko Daxl

The numerous works they have created bear witness to their joy in experimenting, always moving on the borderline to the unknown. Employing new technologies, they investigate various, so far unknown optical and acoustic phenomena. The observer’s senses, his hearing, his sight and his sense of touch, are always consciously engaged, unsettling his perception. Daxl and Fülepp demonstrate new ways in the artistic exploration of the technical possibilities of creating sounds and abstract images which force the observer to an integrated reception. They seek to make the recipient think about the reality which is imparted to him in an artificial and technical manner.
