DysFunkt!onal is back!
The maverick live music and digital art deconstruction is now a bi-monthly fixture at Studio-80, Amsterdam.
Saturday 5th of November [20:00 - 04:00]
Studio-80, Rembrandtplein 17, Amsterdam.
What's this all about? The interface by which the worlds of visual art and sound art increasingly interleave has become known by the technological phenomena of 'convergence' - a top-down movement driven by the digital process, gathering all media practitioners at the point of the cursor and the pixel with a shared vision of file structures, output resolution, cut, splice and loop.
However, in the scramble to keep pace with the changing paradigm many have overlooked the fact that the most compelling exchange is not technologically driven, but takes place bottom-up; a dialogue of forms at the point of source; at composition, language, manipulating information, understanding structures, patterns and processes, organising stimuli, deconstructing nature, remapping the rigid grid of space and time. Whether in film, design, music or science, this is the point at which all actions become sound, all words become colour and all music becomes light.

been a great deal of activity at No Immortal over the past year,
much of it behind the scenes; so expect a slew of announcements in due course! In
the meantime, if you haven’t
done so already, please check out some of the new arrivals at our webstore.
Ben Sheppee’s Hidden Partition DVD is currently
being talked up a storm in the press, receiving a coveted ‘DVD of the
Month’ from DJ Magazine,
amongst other supporters. D-Fuse are onto huge things with that floppy fringed
maestro, Beck, at the moment, so they can be forgiven for not schmoozing with
us at the usual crack parties of late. See what all the fuss is about on the D-Tonate_00 DVD
here. Also, don’t forget that we still have a few remaining copies
of the excellent Resonance FM compilation, Flatpack
Antenna. When they’re
gone, they’re gone, etc...

Bedouin Ascent sings more of his broken songs at BAD LOOK BOUDOIR! a party thrown
by Subterfuge at the rather lovely Battersea Arts Centre.
Laugh. Cry. Be moved. Be curious. Ask for tissues. Feel adventurous. Feel
exhausted. Feel debased!
The autonomous polysexual cabaret with a punk rock ethic climaxes its first year
celebrations with a special performance at BAC. Bad Look Boudoir will
be one of the most memorable appearances from this star-mangled band of outlaw
renegades. Will contain nudity, swearing and men from Texas. Over 18’s
Lots of djs, vjs, live bands, cabaret, etc. For a full listing see:
We're greatly saddened by the tragic loss of our friend
Casper Pound of Rising High. Casper passed away in his sleep
on Friday after a very difficult number of years recovering from
major surgery. His passing comes at a time when he was once again
beginning to look to the future with his characteristic infectious
enthusiasm and unique vision. Casper was an inspiration to a
generation of music lovers throughout the world and to all those
he worked, played and partied with. His open heart, open
mind and generous spirit will be sorely missed, but never forgotten.
We know at least that somewhere, Casper Pound will still be Flying
High. Our thoughts go out to his family and his beloved daughter,
Sapho. You did it mate, rest in peace.

album "I Tweet the Birdy Electric"
Icarus will be joined by Dysfunktional Beats founder Bedouin Ascent,
and newly formed free jazz trio arthurs.dakiz.westerhus, conspiring
to bring several takes on a similar theme of exploratory and risky
improvisation via a great many speakers, the nature of their instruments

in the wake of the aural mayhem. Expect chaos, unplanned melodies
and bird sounds.
Further entertainment will be supplied by the Parnassus Crew's
master of hardcore, darkcore, and those wicked quirky beats that
nobody else has got, DJ Laurent Duriaud, and rising star of avant
garde hip hop, DJ Woof Wan Bau, as well as Leaf Label chief DJ

Almost impossible to categorize they swing from virtuosic jazz to
gritty funk with freedom and movement, veering into leftfield territory
and returning with snappy anthem-like tunes. Unpredictable and exciting,
they carved a unique style in the UK and won praise from critics at
home and abroad. Sometimes a maelstrom of sound, other times a hypnotic
theme over backbeats, their eclectic fusion of style foreshadowed
the move towards mixing influences in much of today's modern music.

For the last decade he has been OUT THERE mixing live and digital,
West African percussion with North Indian classical modes and chaos
and quantum theories with Zen and Tao. His list of collaborators is

came out in late November on the No Immortal label, destined to rock
our world in a fundamental manner. Catch him live on laptop and synths

soirée de musique électronique improvisée live
qui transporte au-delà des frontières du conformisme.
Des artistes du monde entier, aux influences variées (jazz,
d'n'bass, indian classical) unis par le désir de désintellectualiser
la musique electronique."
Essentially it's a platform to showcase live, improvised electronic
music and visual artforms which explore more non-linear forms
and structures than in regular commercial dance music (with a
particular emphasis on rhythmic deconstruction, jazz and fusion
sensibilities). Although experimental, these events are intended
to be very accessible and above all a great party atmosphere for
those not necessarily wishing to engage intellectually. It's all
about the science of the 'cut-up', whether in music, visuals,
design or writing for example.
This is also an opportunity to showcase 'freestyle' live sound
which is not often associated with the rigid structures of electronic
dance music. Musically it's about arrangements falling apart and
coming back together - invoking a perpetual and dynamic condition
- like a continual series of 'mistakes' with no real agenda, other
than the fact that it sounds good. The freedom of chance; the
opportunity for chance interaction within musical structures to
build their own narrative; the chance for artists to take some
risks they wouldn't normally be able to and collaborate on new
work. Anything's possible. That's both the danger and the beauty!

Biswas continues his no-fi games with rhythms so irrational they playfully
tease the linear structure of sequenced music to produce the exquisite
effect of perpetual rolling. Spiraling currents pulled by ever tighter
forces in an open field of possibility. Turning, turning... Lost forever
in the loving warmth of urban noise and the sweetest tension.
While the whole of the dance arena concerns itself with the mechanical
rhythm of propulsion - like drones synched to a universal clock, locked
in constant forward motion - junk_force adopts a wholly lateral stance.
Beats spiral, moving, at once, forward, sideways and backwards - like
the adrenaline rush of a brisk young breeze, constantly changing direction
- because there's just so much sky! Change is, ultimately, the only
