POOLcast 048 - Dr.Nojoke versus Anomali
Live at Waha Festival 2019
It's November, which means it's been four years since we started releasing new mixtapes, live-sets, dj-sets, collages and everything in between every month. With this POOLcast edition we're finishing our current season and, like every year, we're getting a fresh look. Musically we stay in familiar spheres. For this year's anniversary we have again something very special from our own party for you. A live set from someone who started everything with us and who was already a fixed part of our fellowship before The POOL Berlin, PLO and POOLcast, of course we're talking about Frank Bogdanowitz, Dr.Nojoke alias Anomali.
Dr.Nojoke has been a musician for decades and experienced several musical, historical and personal revolutions. One of the last ones took place with Frank himself, after he had made his producer and live act Alter Ego Dr.Nojoke famous in Berlin and beyond, it was time to tear down old borders and explore new territories. It's not an easy step to take a new path, to leave behind something that has been with you for years, that has become part of yourself, and to go into the unknown. What at the first moment can have the unpleasant taste of a farewell to old values is in reality the acceptance of your own freedom and this is exactly what we are using in this issue of POOLcast. Our concept of following artists through the years of their work tears down a new barrier with this episode. Dr.Nojoke versus Anomali is the union of two worlds that have shaped Frank's life since the last historical revolution.
The Live-set was played in the morning on Sunday, July 14th, 2019, on the Chill in Space stage, Waha Festival, Romania. A blend of field recordings, productions and loops from my projects anomali, rand and dr.nojoke performed live with my typical instrumentarium*, my voice and dub-effects.
( *Singing bowl, marbles, jew's harp, metal plate, sticks, children's accordion, kazoo, radio, stylophone, monotron and more percussive stuff. )
Behind barriers, opportunities emerge.
