arrowGet High Fiona – Better Rhythm

04.12.12 by Lukas

Get High Fiona did their Onebeat debut with their great show at our 4th edition of our experimental session in September. They play a mix of world music, experimental electronica and soul. It’s hard to define but instantly makes you sense the depth of the emotions they put in their songwriting. Biljana plays bass on a keyboard, makes fills and sings, looping and filtering her voice. Geronimo is the multi-instrumentalist behind the main sound collage, playing the guitar, piano and wavedrum, creating beats and breaks with his computer.

They will be up on our artist page soon. For more information check out their website: www.get-high-fiona.de

arrowPhotos – OneBeat Experimental Session #5 w/ ELEPHANT live 09.11.2012

16.11.12 by Lukas

Some photos from our latest session at Joao Cocteau in Neukölln for all those who missed it. Session 5 was one of our best and Elephant’s performance was brilliant and entertaining. For those wondering: on friday the 9th of November, we invited the trio to play a live jam session to accompany film sequences. We mixed both experimental and narrative parts and we think that it helped the artists perform but also kept the evening interesting and fun.

The next experimental session will be in 2013 and the date is not yet set but we’ll let you know as soon as we confirm anything.. be sure that it will something we haven’t done before, and with different artists, as always.
Don’t miss our next event at the Michelberger Hotel on friday, the 23.11, with Elephant and Lavoisier LIVE.

arrowExperimental Session 5 – compositions for film w/ ELEPHANT 9.11 21h

02.11.12 by Lukas

Session 5 is a special one.
We challenged the trio ELEPHANT to play a live jam session to accompany silent film sequences.

ELEPHANT are the ‘contemporary melodic groove collective’. Drums, bass and piano by Christoph, Antti and Marco. Various elements from jazz, popculture, classical, contemporary and electronica, whilst improvisation is the underlying core.

For the session we’ll work with a wide range of footage, not exclusively from silent films but coming mostly from around the 1920s and 1930s. The night will be divided into 3 20min parts, each representing a different theme and divided by short breaks. ELEPHANT will be improvising to a sequence they will have seen before, but never played or rehearsed to.

3 parts = 3 themes = 3 songs
I – Rythms & Colors
II – Narrative
III – Animation

Experimental Sessions 4 w/ Get High Fiona Live & Viva con AguaExperimental Sessions 4 w/ Get High Fiona Live & Viva con AguaExperimental Sessions 4 w/ Get High Fiona Live & Viva con AguaExperimental Sessions 4 w/ Get High Fiona Live & Viva con Agua

Time goes by.. almost 2 weeks ago OneBeats Experimental Session 4 took place in Joao Cocteau in Neukölln. We finally found the time to upload some impressions from Get High Fiona LIVE and the short presentation by Viva con Agua Berlin about their sustainable work and activities.  Big thanks for Olaf from Viva con Agua for coming and telling us about your work. You guys rock, keep it up!  Massive thanks also to Get High Fiona, for the extended concert  and the impressive amount of gear you brought with you. We’ll have to change to a bigger venue to cope with that. Last but not least, thanks to all who came out, we hope to see you next time!

Session 5 will take place on the 9th of November and be featuring the trio ELEPHANT in a live jam session to accompany a silent film. The audience will be seated around the musicians, watching both the artists and the footage. We’re looking forward to an audiovisual journey shaped by piano, drums and bass. Check in on our facebook event.

arrowGet High Fiona LIVE & Viva con Agua @ Experimental Sessions#4 – 28.09 – 21h

Get High Fiona LIVE - Experimental Sessions 4

We’re happy to announce that next friday, the 28th of September we are running round 4 of the experimental sessions and also the anniversary of our event format. We started our sessions in 2011 on the 24th of September.

For this special edition we invited the Balkan electronica duo “Get High Fiona” to play live and our Social Good Partner Viva con Agua for a short presentation about their sustainable work.

Get High Fiona play a mix of world music, experimental electronica and soul. It’s hard to define but instantly makes you sense the depth of the emotions they put in their songwriting. Biljana plays bass on a keyboard, makes fills and sings, looping and filtering her voice. Geronimo is the multi-instrumentalist behind the main sound collage, playing the guitar, piano and wavedrum, creating beats and breaks with his computer.

Our Social Good Partner Viva con Agua is raising funds and awareness for drinking water projects of the German Welthungerhilfe. But aren’t they from Hamburg and what do they do exactly? Where does the money go to? We invited Olaf from Viva con Agua to do a 10 minute talk about Viva con Agua in Berlin, their projects, activities, network, some numbers and of course their main topic: water.

Find out more about Get High Fiona on www.get-high-fiona.de and check Viva con Agua on www.vivaconagua.org

Start 21h, 28.09 at João Cocteau, Kienitzer Strasse 98/
12049 Berlin
Facebook RSVP: www.facebook.com/events/142997222510683/

Next session is on the 9th of November with the improvised jazz trio Elephant. More infos coming soon…

OneBeat Experimental Sessions is an event format aiming to explore the experimental side of (electronic) music, music performance and performing (visual) arts.
