Free Christmas download – Willkommen Patchwerk

Friday, December 21st, 2012

In the past we’ve created several collaborative Willkommen projects for free download over the Christmas period.

This year we asked as many Willkommen related artists as possible to simply contribute thirty seconds of sound. I stitched them together in the order in which they arrived to make a sonic patchwork quilt. The result is incredibly diverse and beautiful despite the random nature of its composition and form.

Thank you to the following people for contributing:

Alessi Laurent-Marke (Alessi’s Ark)
Woodpecker Wooliams
Said Speaks
Landshapes
Marcus Hamblett
Soccer96
Eyes & No Eyes
Hamilton Yarns
Thomas Heather
Danny Green (Laish)
Gravenhurst
John Smith
Fiona Sally Miller
Nick Hemming (The Leisure Society)
This Is The Kit
Rachael Dadd & Ichi
Rozi Plain
Birdengine

Limited early bird tickets for ECHO with Damo Suzuki, Sons of Noel and Adrian, Soccer96 and Eyes & No Eyes

Monday, November 5th, 2012

Since 2009 Willkommen’s ECHO micro-festival has accompanied our larger festival FOXTROT as an outlet for weirder sounds. In the past we’ve brought you the likes of Diane Cluck, Anders Griffen, Woodpecker Wooliams and many more from the more avant-garde end of the folk spectrum, this year we’re dropping folk all together and going kosmiche.

Headlining is the legendary vocalist Damo Suzuki of krautrock pioneers Can. This man needs no introduction. His band will be composed of musicians from the support bands – Sons of Noel and Adrian, Soccer96 and Eyes & No Eyes.

Music presented in glorious technicolor thanks to the Innerstrings Psychedelic Lightshow, who will be painting the performances with their vintage oil wheel projectors. More details about the show here.

I am putting thirty tickets up for sale today at an ‘early bird’ price of just £8.50. Snap them up here – once they’re gone, they’re gone.
