returns to the Schleswig-Holstein Musik Festival
For the fourth year in a row, SonarSound returns to Hamburg
at the Schleswig-Holstein Musik Festival on August 12. This is one
of the most prestigious cultural events of the European circuit.
Established in 1986, the festival consistently combines performances
by big classical music stars with concerts that showcase new trends.
It also devotes each edition to reviewing the current music of one
country. This year it is Japan’s turn.
The main stage of Hamburg’s Kampnagel lounge –the Main
Hall (K6)– will showcase SonarSound night with performances
by various respected Japanese artists. The programme includes an
exclusive set by Dj Krush and live performances
by Hofuku Sochi, World’s End Girlfriend
and Mu. Many of them recently appeared at Sónar
2005 in Barcelona and got an excellent reaction from the public.
SonarSound is a glossary of the emerging trends and timeless hits
of the electronic universe; an event that has travelled to London,
Lisbon, Neuchâtel, São Paulo, Rome and Tokyo and which
reflects the decentralized state of electronic music.
SonarSound is an initiative by Advanced Music.

21:30-22:30 :: Hofuku Sochi (live)
This pair of local experimenters is equally capable of using Nintendo
software as publishing their material exclusively in netlabels.
Hofuku Sochi will offer an overview of their risky discography,
including a re-mix dedicated to the godfather of sampling, French
veteran Pierre Henry.
22:45-23:45 :: World’s End Girlfriend (live)
Featured in interesting catalogues such as those by Third Ear, Forfull,
Young-Z, Current, Noble and Cubic Music, labels which have fallen
in love with the group’s moving and temperamental species
of electronic. Strange and complex landscapes that invite us to
00:00-01:00 :: Mu (live)
Mutsumi Kanamori, author with her husband Maurice Fulton of the
hit “Paris Hilton”, represents the most wild and subversive
side of dance music. Martian house, twisted beats, and all the glamour
in the world. Disco-punk at its most chic.
01:15 -02:15 :: Dj Krush (dj)
Pioneer of the Japanese hip hop scene and creator of a personal
sound that fluctuates between abstract beats and electrojazz, Dj
Krush has been dazzling audiences around the world since 1991 with
hypnotic sets and stylised productions
