NIKOLAS SCHRECK “THE FUTURA MODEL” 12“ EP

 

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.

Current musical projects include The School For Cadavers (with Julian Percy), The Grimsel Path (with John Murphy).

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.

NIKOLAS SCHRECK

SONIC MAGIC IN THEORY & PRACTICE

A LECTURE ON MUSIC AND MAGIC

CHARLES MANSON SUPERSTAR

Directed & produced by Nikolas Schreck 1989

MOVIE SCREENING, AND TALK

8 – 11 pm, Entrance fee: 10€

Nikolas will sign copies of his new collector's edition EP vinyl release ''The Futura Model'' (The Epicurean, cure.16)

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''

Dark Entries

“Golden Temple is definitely Anemone Tube’s strongest release to date.”

Heathen Harvest

“Certainty one of the most authentic industrial releases in recent decades.

Darkroom

“Anemone Tube have distinctive and individual sound which is essentially without comparison (…an equilibrium of structure & chaos and a balancing of harmony & disharmony). This album has been long awaited and is a veritable feast for the eye, ear and mind (…)”

Noise Receptor

“Zweifellos das stimmigste und reifeste Album des Künstlers – close to perfection!”

Nonpop

“ (…) das immer etwas links klingende Wort Antikapitalismus und das immer etwas rechts klingende Wort Antimodernismus wurden selten so sehr überblendet, wie auf diesem an Andeutungen und Anspielungen reichen Album, das den Geist Pasolinis wie ein Kontrastmittel über die Goldenen Tempel unserer Zeit gießt – und damit selbst die namenlose saufende Schönheit zu Füßen der Kolosses aus Glas und Beton zum Strahlen bringt.”

“With Anemone Tube and Post Scriptvm sharing this split, it is a logical pairing as they have quite individual and distinctive sounds within the post-industrial underground and both tend to frame their musical works around specific and interesting concepts. (…) a multifaceted experience which engages on levels of both emotion (i.e. the music) and contemplation (i.e. the concept).”

– Noise Receptor

The two dark experimental projects, Anemone Tube and Post Scriptvm, join forces to offer us an unprecedented work, "Litaniae Mortuorum Discordant". Hypnotic, engaging and mysterious … riding between ritual and dark ambient.” Rating: 9,75 of 10”

– Mentenebre

Gelungenes Split-Release der beiden Post-Industrial-Projekte, die ihre musikalische Diversität hier vorbildlich fruchtbar machen: überzeugender Mix aus Noise-, Drone- und Experimental-Elementen, appetitlich abgeschmeckt mit einer Prise Mystik und einem Schuss Humor.

– Nonpop

“Me myself I didn't feel elevated after hearing all of this, or particular depressed actually, but I found it all most enjoyable. Hopefully that is allowed!”
