Sabbat: Yajuj o Majuj, Anemone Tube, Geometria del Esplendor am 31. Mai im Berliner Urban Spree

Unter dem Slogan “A Night of Dark Ritualistic Meditation” veranstaltet Sabbat Berlin am 31. Mai einen Konzert- und Filmabend mit einem abwechslungsreichen Programm. Auf dem Plan stehen Konzerte des iranischen Ambient-Duos Yajuj o Majuj und des unseren Lesern hinlängliche bekannten Post Idustrial-Projektes Anemone Tube, dessen spirituelle und kulturkritische Ausrichtung in einer eindringlichen audiovisuellen Performance präsentiert wird. “Headliner” sozusagen ist José Ramón da Cruz’ Doku über die Band Esplendor Geométrico, die die abseitige elektronische Musik seit den frühen 80ern maßgeblich mitprägte und wie wenige andere zum Entstehen des sogenannten Rhythm Noise oder Rhythm Industrial beigetragen hat. Abgerundet wird der Abend durch DJ-Sets von Nekrobot, Angelic Sintesis und Lithium (Ancestral).



Yajuj o Majuj is a Duet-sound in contrast with agitated fiction modern dystopia to decelerate chaos in order to reach to the timeless level of being where one can experience no place and realize the illusion mankind is trapped in. Yajuj o majuj is a Atmospheric Dark ambient – Experimental live project. A Post Modern Approach to Persian Dark Retreat Meditation

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.

In the latest “Golden Temple” live set Anemone Tube creates a sacred and engaging atmosphere through Buddhist rituals, utilizing liturgic objects (statues, candles, censer and incense) and highly aesthetic video projections showing old masters paintings with religiously charged symbolism (Greek mythology, old and new testament, Buddhism) and contemporary photographs, offering an absorbing, inspiring as well as complex concept, which not only raises spiritual questions, how we live and die, but above all fascinates the audience on a purely emotional & spiritual level.

Releases: CD, tape and vinyl releases on Auf Abwegen (DE), Raubbau/Ant-Zen (DE), Peripheral Records (GB), Silken Tofu (BE), Black Horizons (USA), La Esencia (ES) and The Epicurean (DE).

“Geometría del Esplendor” is a documentary on the legendary band known as Esplendor Geométrico. This film captures more than thirty years of music, creativity and indepen- dence during the revolution of techno music. It takes you back to the times and to the foundation of the art that still lives on today throughout Spain and Europe. The style is described in a metromatic decalogue or key combination, among other things, are laid out using structures of guidance, like a symphony, different assembly order and set com- binations of random appearances, like music models and interviews, but are well put to- gether.

In 1980, a student, a graphic designer and a prison public servant founded ESPLENDOR GEOMÉTRICO, a music band that soon became the seed of the most extreme and radical industrial music waves. These waves are the reflection of a cultural and unique period of our history. In the documentary GEOMETRÍA DEL ESPLENDOR, directed by the film maker José Ramón da Cruz, sound and image becomes a whole corpus of “visual music”.
