    Der CAN-Schlagzeuger Jaki Liebezeit (geb. 1938) und der Elektronik-Produzent Burnt Friedman teilen eine Vorliebe für wenig gebräuchliche Rhythmen. Die beiden Künstler haben sich ganz bewusst vom west-europäischen, anglo-amerikanischen Regel-rhythmus abgewendet, um ihre Formensprache auf alle global verfügbaren Rhythmen zu erweitern. Ihre in Zyklen angelegten, ungeraden Rhythmen verzahnen mit atemberaubender Präzision Sequenzen, Trommeln und Synthesizer; Gespieltes und Programmiertes. Eine Trance Erfahrung jenseits der üblichen Techno Schemen. Mit Hilfe von Repititionen und Variationen baut das Duo aus Jazz, World und Elektronik eine moderne, minimale Ritual-Musik. Eine Sternstunde zeitloser Musikkultur mit einem der einflussreichsten Schlagzeuger der Welt.

    The artists have consciously turned away from Western European, Anglo-American regulated rhythm in order to enrich their vocabulary with all globally relevant rhythms.

    Jaki Liebezeit: “It possibly incorporated many elements of this earth without featuring any specific elements. The individual elements have been made abstract, no ethnic or national character remains, there’s nothing typical to Seville or Istanbul, but the properties held in common by all types of music have been abstracted and processed.”

    If it is still possible to establish a link with his past as a member of CAN, then it lies in the spirit with which he seeks, then as now, new musical forms. The post-CAN Liebezeit not only created his own cycle-based drum system but also developed an innovative drumset that concentrates on the essentials and permits a mode of playing that was already theoretically honed to be physically implemented in optimum fashion.

    Friedman’s programmed or played sequences and placeless sound particles adhere to the same understanding of rhythm, allowing the two heterogeneous sound generators to perfectly intermesh and form a unit – both acoustically and electronically, in terms of improvisation and concept alike.


    The "play loud! (live) music series" has been initiated by filmmakers Dietmar Post & Lucía Palacios (responsible for monks – the transatlantic feedback, Reverend Billy, Klangbad, Franco’s Settlers). The series parts from three ideas, Alan Lomax's work as an archivist and chronicler, John Peel's BBC radio sessions and the work of Direct Cinema pioneers, such as, Maysles Brothers, Leacock, Wildenhahn and Pennebaker. Filming live shows meant not to do it in a TV style but in a very personal, intuitive and adventurous style – nothing is staged for filming. You go along as it happens. Some of the live performances are filmed with only one camera in one continuous shot without any edits. Some critics have labeled it as "filmed paintings/painted films".

    play loud!’s music films have been called: “raw”, “rough”, “canny”, “straightforward”, “adventurous”, “witty”, “insightful”, “direct”, “non-tricksy”, “economic”, “minimal”, “unpretentious handheld camera work”, "artful film paintings" …

    play loud!’s intention is to furthermore create an extensive archive of interesting popular music that includes also the possibility to screen/stream material that comes from other sources.
