Entertainment by DJ Anemone

Far reaching pleasures will be at hand – Anemone Tube reveals a series of three CDs entitled “The Three Worlds: Allegory of Vanity / Forget Heaven / Vanity of Allegory”, referencing a cosmological treatise on the universe from the Theravada Buddhism of the 14th century, the subject matter of which is the description of three levels of existence of all beings and mythical creatures. “The Three Worlds” is a work about transience on many levels, perfectly elucidated in the Buddhist Sutra “Far Reaching Pleasures”, “The three worlds are transient like clouds in autumn / Birth and death of all beings unfold like a dance / Their lives rush away like a mountain stream / Vanish like lightning in the sky”, which serves as the contextual framework for the CD series and is translated in the most beautiful and poetic fashion with three painstakingly arranged photographic scenes based on vanitas symbolism of old masters’ paintings, displayed as a tryptic in The Hole.

Lecture, movie screening and record release by NIKOLAS SCHRECK

8 pm: SONIC MAGIC IN THEORY AND PRACTICE – A lecture on music and magic
9 pm: CHARLES MANSON SUPERSTAR (1989) directed and produced by NIKOLAS SCHRECK – Movie screening, and talk
Nikolas will sign copies of his new collector's edition EP vinyl release ''The Futura Model''

Acclaimed by Evolver magazine as “schon zu Lebzeiten eine Legende”, the American singer-songwriter, author and film-maker Nikolas Schreck’s initiatory application of music, ritual and theater formally began in 1984 when he returned to the West from a life-changing spiritual pilgrimage in Egypt to found the shapeshifting musical ensemble Radio Werewolf, a nine-year sonic magic operation which concluded in 1993. After pioneering early Los Angeles Gothic and deathrock with the band’s first incarnation, Radio Werewolf’s European phase was hailed by Christopher Walton of the band Endura for “simultaneously pre-empting and giving birth to the dark-ambient and ritual-industrial scene of the 1990’s.” Before embarking on his current solo career, Schreck has previously collaborated musically with Zeena, John Murphy, Death in June, Non, Kingdom of Heaven and Sir Christopher Lee, whose first album he produced. In this exclusive teaching Nikolas will speak on the mystical art of applying ritual magic, consciousness alteration and spiritual initiation to music. The techniques Nikolas teaches in this course enable musicians and practitioners from any background to enhance their work with new spiritual significance and expand the consciousness of both creator and listener.

Schreck will also show his 1989 Video Werewolf film Charles Manson Superstar, featuring his exclusive interview with Charles Manson. Chris Gore of FILM THREAT: ”The best documetary ever on Charles Manson! In the true sense of the term ”documentary”, this 90 minute video contains none of the predictable editorializing of Manson’s career. Nikolas Schreck is a genius at the form and should be a news anchor for the networks'' Dominik Tischleder of Black Magazine: ”CHARLES MANSON SUPERSTAR, der wohl großartigsten Dokumentation, die unsere Szene je hervorgebracht hat.'' Recommended by Rolling Stone magazine in their 2016 article ''Charlie on Demand: 10 Things to Read, Watch and Hear on Charles Manson''

Anemone Tube was founded 1996 in South-Germany; since 2010 based in Berlin. The audio works of Anemone Tube are a unique blend of dark ambient, noise, industrial and sound-art with a strong psychogenic impact. The use of constantly shifting and altering sounds and moods is possibly one of the most intriguing things about the audio creations of Anemone Tube. Since 2007 Anemone Tube has been working on "The Suicide Series". To this field recordings made in China and Japan build a conceptional basis. In a poetic way Anemone Tube combines analytical realism of the phenomenal world with buddhist psychology and nihilist rhetoric influenced by the works of Pier Paolo Pasolini, H.P. Lovecraft, J.G. Ballard and Hayao Miyazaki.

To celebrate his latest retrospective release “The Three Worlds: Allegory of Vanity / Forget Heaven / Vanity of Allegory” 3 CD set, Anemone Tube will present a new live performance based on his late 90s industrial-noise works.
