The Kommander Lab on the Moon!

10 th may 2019

with

Jurgen Winkel - SONICrider


The Kommander Lab on the Moon is an interactive presentation and workshop based on (but not only) Koma Elektronik gear used by Jurgen Winkel aka SONICrider.

"The idea is to built patches as examples using various KOMA (from now on just KOMA instead of Koma Elektronik) gear with some technical background but mainly the musical use of them (how to use in general, how does SONICrider use it). At the end there will be a sort of unique patch (well isn't a patch always unique) which can be used to make some music, sounds or ... together" said Jurgen.

As a sort roadmap towards the end patch the route runs via a short introduction about Jurgen, SONICrider, KOMA  and "The Kommander Lab on the Moon" approach.

Jurgen: "to me KOMA is a company that makes gear that is different from most other brands, but easy to incorporate in almost any set up not only modular. They challenge musicians to walk new directions, experimenting connecting DIY, Eurorack and hardware".

Konstantin Gervis (Tiptop Audio) :

Berlin based electronic music producer and live performer, one half of techno duo ZV_K. After terminating Seventeen Migs Of Spring (https://vimeo.com/44095300) in 2010 Konstantin returned to his techno roots only to discover the inability of hybrid systems to produce very tight clocks and musically relevant swing, after a quick turnover of various hardware instruments that he was using in Triangle Eyes (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QNNMgti09AU) and Zvukoprocessor (https://vimeo.com/11233444) his eurorack system grew to a point of being able to produce full sounding tracks in one go. In 2014 he moved to Berlin to concentrate on his solo works as well as further developing ZV_K (www.zv-k.com) a modular only techno project with Jessica Kert that since been constantly playing around Europe at festivals such as Atonal, Freqs Of Nature, Kontaktor, Fuchsbau and Ars Electronica as well as in clubs across Europe, USA and Japan.  

* AFTER THE WORKSHOP WE LAUNCH SPACE JAM.

THIS IS NOT ROCKET SCIENCE (TINRS) is presented by Priscilla Haring-Kuipers and Stijn Haring-Kuipers, lovely and inspiring couple. 

Here is what guys speak about their company:

"..We combine #digital and #analogue into the best of all worlds. We want to give you controls that are musically relevant. We started our #Eurorack adventure with #Tuesday, our procedural #sequencer & melody maker. Now you can also play with our two new releases: #Wobbler is our advanced #lfo and #Edgecutter is our visual envelope. We always bring our current #prototypes (#BigFish, #Flask) and #experiments (#RectangularThing, #EchoChamber). We have plans… Come beep with us."
