20:00 | Gueule Populaire
In 2010, Gueule Populaire originally started out as a 'classic' improvised music group in the Viennese tradition. Like many of those, over the years of constant collaboration, we also slowly developed the need for an extension of material, which at the beginning manifested itself in the idea of the compositional emancipation and integration of movement into our practice.
What first was just an emphasis on natural gestures evolving while playing the instruments, turned into a general awareness and focus on the body and its extension, the environment. We continued to work with subliminal body language, flicker movement and different room positionings that result in altered room acoustics.
Following the path of expansion, we also started to weave in other theatrical elements (light-design, costumes, props) and explored and integrated altered mental/structural states like static installational or durational approaches into our performances, further opening up new dimensions of experience.
Gueule Populaire are Margaret Unknown (various audio setups ranging from prepared guitar, synthesizer, DIY electronics, woodwinds, percussion, feedback systems, voice) and Rosi Rehformen (cello, voice).

"... a music that generates a hypnotic atmosphere out of musical atoms like: sine waves, clicks, feedback and noise. once in a while giving a reference to real world by playing sounds of everyday life. very pure, very fragile, beautifully restrained." [Carl Stone]
Klaus Filip *1963 computer music, programming, composition
Klaus Filip is a performer/composer/programmer and was maybe the first Viennese musician to use a laptop on stage at around 1993. The main focus of his current work is sinewaves, whose subtle and adducent sounds are used in a wide dynamic range depending on the project; that could be a noisy set with Chulki Hong or playing at the odour detection threshold with Radu Malfatti.
Klaus Filip runs a software project called ppooll (formerly known as lloopp) that is a networking collection of a variety of modules. This freeware is widely used by improvising musicians all over the world. Teaching position at the university of applied arts, Vienna. Steady dispute with the computer as a musical instrument.

noid /aka Arnold Haberl Musiker, Komponist, Sound Artist, lebt und arbeitet in Wien
His music interprets the reality of sound we live in - this reality consists of imaginations, wishes, dreams and acoustical hallucinations as well as of the sound of the fan or a laptop or the wolf-tone of a cello. His sensual approach to sound, assisted by structural concepts, addresses a wide range of contradictory outcomes. Since the self-understanding of his work can be described as fundamental research, the results are mostly understandable as a concentrate (essence), leaving out irrelevant points. Consequently his musical works span from solo-works and installations to compositions for ensembles, using electronics as well as acoustic instruments, often denying the borderline between music and sound-art. This led him to collaborations with several choreographers, like João Fiadeiro, Colette Sadler, Akemi Takeya, Philipp Gehmacher, etc... and visual artists as for instance Alexander Schellow, Heike Kaltenbrunner, Erik Hable or god's entertainment. As an improviser he performs in various constellations, among others with: Klaus Filip, Taku Unami, o.blaat, Axel Doerner, Christian Weber, Kai Fagaschinski, dieb13, Kazuhisa Uchihashi, etc.
He is also programming for the "ppooll" project: an open source / copyleft / freeware, designed for live – improvisation, composition, interactive installations.
