Richard von der Schulenburg: Electromagnetic Audioversum
Cassettes (tapes) are sound carriers for electromagnetic analogue recording and playback. Richard von der Schulenburg will devote himself playing back these wonderful sound carriers. He will remix, loop, play forwards and backwards cassettes from different decades and countries.
RVDS aka Richard von der Schulenburg works in various genres as a DJ and producer. Since 2005, he has been a resident at the Golden Pudel Club and released music on labels such as Bureau B, It’s, Uncanny Valley, etc. He also plays piano with the 440hz Trio and has composed various music pieces for theatre.
Polter-Abend: Call Centre for Destruction (Repeat)
The Papiripar Festival invites you to a controlled destruction parade. Local smashing stars will destroy favourite objects, hate objects or superfluous heirlooms of different sizes with hammer, axe and bare fist in the tiled walls an old garage. The festival hereby creates a supervised forum for the discharge of pent-up energies. The performance will be transmitted from the workshop of the Gröninger Hof to the radio by means of installed room microphones.
Also, listeners are encouraged to call in and destroy objects. Their actions will be broadcast via telephone directly from their domestic homes.
Due Duci: Konstruktzione (Repeat)
Due Duci are feine Trinkers bei Guttemplern Daheim. However, they prefer to make sound in the basement, preferably in their 001-studio in RBO. At the end of 2020, their first album "Bau" was released on cassette by 001-Records. Then, at the beginning of 2021, they stole 7K K-Paper and crawled into their K-cave for the time being. Now, for Papiripar, they exclusively re-emerge for a “Day On” and play their first GIG together.
Due Duci’s sound wavers from left to right and back again. Musically, the two cassette perpetrators can be categorised between noise, lo-fi, collage and nonsense. At Papiripar they play live for an hour, equipped with radios, tape decks, contact mics, bongos and duck flutes.
Felix Kubin plays demos, “Radiaator” Festival, Tallinn 2011
Felix Kubin plays demos from the audience and from his archive at the Radiaator festival in Tallinn in 2011. He also gets quite drunk and theatrical. The concept of this show is based on the project Demo Dandies that he runs with his friend Felix Raeithel a.k.a. Istari Lasterfahrer.
Felix Kubin is a composer, a drinker and a good friend.
KunstHasserStammTisch “Papier-Musik-Festival” (A piece in two hundred parts) (Repeat)
The KunstHasserStammTisch has made it their mission to address the setting and the medium in which it takes place. “Papiripar” (Hungarian) means “paper industry”. We interrogate the paper factory and stage a “mini-festival” at Papiripar, where compositions and Hits are performed with, about and from paper. With guests from the KHST. Special guest: Hannes Wienert.
Das KunstHasserStammTisch is the “fast” format of noroomgallery, which has been producing forms of presentation and mediation beyond the white cube for over 20 years. At the KunstHasserStammTisch, new forms of access to and with art are explored in one evening.
Daniel R. Wilson: Post-electronic music – Lecture Performance (Repeat)
Imagining a scenario in a possible future where compromised resources hinder electronic sound production, Daniel R. Wilson of Oscillatorial Binnage introduces “post-electronic soundmaking” using acoustic mechanical means instead. Post-electronic music absorbs all the techniques and ideals of classical electronic sound synthesis, with its emphases on modulation, filtering and wave-shaping, to enable sonic exploration of the infinite world of the real. However, the current compromises necessitated by the pandemic favour “ultra-electronic soundmaking” via digital communication if an audience is to be engaged. In the light of this paradox, absurdity enters the frame, and ecological concerns pirouette upon a livestreamed saucepan undergoing electromagnetic resonance and mechanical hysteresis.
Daniel R. Wilson is a sound artist, researcher, composer and instrument-builder. Wilson performs in electroacoustic music quartet Oscillatorial Binnage and records solo as Meadow House where bespoke instruments are showcased. Together with filmmaker Toby Clarkson, the electroacoustic “Radionics Radio” project drew attention to the forgotten microtonal 1940s thought-to-frequency experiments of Delawarr Laboratories (Radionics Radio was sponsored by Sound and Music, then released on Sub Rosa). Oscillatorial Binnage’s new album “Agitations: Post-Electronic Sounds” explores the concept of post-electronic music and solar-powered electromagnetic force fields. Wilson contributes variously for magazines and academic journals, including ArtReview, Fortean Times, The Wire, Leonardo Music Journal, Organised Sound, Electronic Sound, The Brooklyn Rail, etc.
Knut Aufermann: The Compression Chamber (Repeat)
“The Compression Chamber” is a perception distorting composition by Knut Aufermann. In this new variation for the Papiripar festival a dummy head microphone will be compressed to smithereens. What are the ramifications of this form of listening, when tiny noises suddenly sound huge and distant whines very close? Will we find connections to the sound of commercial radio with its non-existent dynamic range, to the arguments in the loudness wars, to deep listening or ASMR? Nika Son, Knut Aufermann and further 0dB ghosts will dive right in.
Knut Aufermann studied chemistry, audio engineering and sonic arts (MA Middlesex University, London). From 2002-2005 he was the station manager of Resonance FM in London, now he is active internationally as a radio artist, musician, organiser, curator and lecturer. Together with Sarah Washington he runs the project Mobile Radio investigating alternative means of radio production.
Matthew Partridge+Carsten Dane+Tobias Levin: „Westwerk Slot Machine – Musical Profits”
A fleeting hour with an acoustic potpourri of scraps of good taste, broken promises, uncut gems, clues, chimeras, musical soupçons and resonant space, assembled and ludically blended by Carsten Dane, Tobias Levin and Matthew Partridge. Westwerk is a home, generator and venue for art and music propelled by inspired make-shifters whose art of improvisation can, should and will stimulate others during this currently unpropitious climate. We dish up artful flukes with slices of serendipity, mixed with a pinch of sound, noise, babel and pandemonium, simmered at operating temperature. Simply sheer delight. Available here for you as soon as this period is over. And something previously unheard of in Germany: staying either rational or irrational is not the point – be both at once.
Tobias Levin: musician and sound engineer. Produces music in Studio Electric Avenue.
Carsten Dane: musician, stages books, translates, runs a voice-recording studio. Co-founder of Westwerk.
Matthew Partridge: musician, photographer, translator, wanderer between different media, occasionally gets to the point. Co-founder of Westwerk.
All three organize concerts and music events in Westwerk. In Hamburg.

Listening forecast issued by the maritime agency Hamburg. Phone calls to isolated artists. Treasures from the island of yesteryear. Audibility moderate or good. With Knut Aufermann.
Delicacies from the depths of Herrengrabenfleet
Soundwalking on Radio Waves
With crooner, musician and radio playwright Günter Reznicek as a trail guide, Hamburg’s industrial wilderness will be explored with the ears and examined for resonating bodies and sound spaces with the help of test signals. Open your ears! While the participants encode the language of roads, bridges, grass, underground passages, sonic surprises can happen. All acoustic events of the landscape exploration will be broadcast live to the world as a musical composition via our Papiripar Radio. So even the neighboring cat in quarantine can experience your aural wanderings up close. Curiosity and the urge to explore are welcome!
Anna Regner: apples in somnia
Dream frequencies meet poetry
Anna Regner is from Vienna and studies at the HFBK. Her focus is on poetic spaces rooted in personal observations, memories, wishes and dreams.
THE GAGA JIJI SHOW pres. Marja Marlene Lechner
MML bases her contribution in the form of an album. This album is called Street. While we are increasingly accustomed to celebrate individual songs instead of the concept of an album, to embark on an acoustic journey, so to speak – but so what … Imagine you’re at an MML concert and marvel at her beauty and her enchanting voice and her not very well trained musical accompaniment. With her songs you are carried through the household to the street with shouting to the sky, through fire and water to a beach and then still have to do your tax declaration in the end.
Marja Marlene Lechner is an artist. She presents her works in exhibitions, on the radio, in concerts, on stages, online and in books. Among other things she works with music and performance. She completely blocks out the audience during her her performances. Sometimes she is met with anger and hatred. She is very shy, if you speak to her she trembles and collapses.
THE GAGA JIJI SHOW pres. Gabriela Těthalová, Jana Doudová, Pia Achternkamp
The vinyl single “Reverse Mantra” is a joint project of artist Gabriela Těthalová and Jana Doudová & Pia Achternkamp from the musical collective POMELO. Name of the project refers to sound and repetition – “mantra” as a song or a poem and a meditative state of mind in a painting process, “reverse” ties to a point where an order is disrupted to create something new and unpredictable. Project relates, among others, to a cyclical perception of time vs. an anachronistic conception of history as well as to fragmentation of space and limits of human perception in contemporary digital environments.
Gabriela Těthalová is a visual artist based in Hamburg and Prague manly interested in the medium of painting both in a traditional and broader sense.
Jana Doudová works as a freelance curator in nomadicArt, curatorial collaborative and (e)Studio Migra and lives in Berlin and Prague.
Pia Achternkamp (aka “loh”) is researching on the borderlands of music, performing arts, language and fine arts – an obscure and yet fruitful landscape as a basis for multi-sensory experience and experimentation.
Mariola Brillowska: Contemporary Art with Snørre Snørrensønsøn
In the podcast “Contemporary Art with …” media artist Mariola Brillowska introduces her school friend, contemporary musician Snørre Snørrensønsøn, born in 1969 in Nuuk, the capital of Greenland. Snørre attended the Prinsesse – Margarethe school of whale sounds in Nuuk. He currently earns his living as an acoustic researcher for the German expedition “Polarstern”, which is studying climate change. Snørre records sounds of melting snowflakes. In the past he worked as a loop hobbyist for Björk, Enya and Tricky.
Mariola Brillowska would have liked to become a marine biologist, but instead she worked for twelve months as a cook at the research station “Polarstern”, where she met the acoustician Snørre Snørrensønsøn.
Call Centre: Play it again, Sam

Bela Brillowska + Jakob Henneken: Post-Millennials in streaming frenzy
The two cultural cosmonauts and eternal youngsters Bela Brillowska and Jakob Henneken have been studying Millennial Matter for years. In the programme presented, they will share their observations, conduct demoscopic research and expose Generation Z to the critical ear. Get lost together with the two klangkinder in an acoustic maze, in search of newborn sounds, the upheaval and stereophonic philosophies.
Jakob Henneken has already published various works in the digital space as “Sinnthese”. He regards music as a tightrope walk between opposites. Bela Brillowska gives birth to herself again every few months as an author, filmmaker and performer. She walks the face of the earth with a muddled head and likes to err because she is convinced that erring is lost between the lines.
Mentos Gulgendo: Church Concert
The Polish sisters “Mentos Gulgendo” have performed a concert in the Immanuelkirche Veddel, which can be watched as a video on this programme at the giving start time. They played the concert in complete isolation because they wanted to concentrate entirely on the subtle changes in air pressure and prefer to be among themselves anyway.
Mentos Gulgendo is a fictional philosopher and a main propagator of the “Harmless Lunatics” theory. The theory states that our universe has been created by the representatives of the cosmic madhouse. Every representative used the finest and the most subtle electromagnetic waves to weave a field of transcendental beauty penetrating the structure of each other. The field expanded invading the solid structures of rationality and therefore transforming the traditional form of identity into a liquid, unsustainable fat.
A journey on punk and teeth: Just because your teeth are crooked doesn't mean giving up your rebellious attitude. Quite the contrary: in the fight against everything beautiful, your teeth are on the hit list anyway.
Tintin Patrone is a German-Filipino composer, musician, actress, film and music producer as well as painter, performance artist and author. The connections between music, art, sound and experimental gesture is the general field TinTin Patrone is interested in. One focus of her creations lies on the visual elements of music, the tension between conceptual ideas and physical existence and how we relate to music individually and as a society.
Her performances and installations include elements from musical Concept-Art, Fluxus and Social practice. Her projects work as a form of comparative study of art and music, from their formal aspects to their points of overlap in history. Another important inspiration that informs her artistic practice is the culture of associations and clubs; she often performs with her orchestra or cooperates with other artists and collectives.
Beau Wanzer Horror Jingles Show
Nikatze will carve a roller coaster ride out of Beau Wanzer’s festival jingles.
Chicago-based artist Beau Wanzer makes music for melting mounds of moist neon membranes, wacky wackadoodles, and your basic chicken head biting geek-a-zoid. Often consisting mutant vocals croaking over hypnotic machine rhythms and nut job synths. His music is grotesque, and a bit sleazy, but it always contains a crucial element of twisted, macabre humor.
No Bra: Love & Power, Dance & Walk etc.
An all-out and intimite concert from the unique No Bra recorded in her apartment in New York exclusively for Papiripar Radio.
No Bra aka Susanne Oberbeck is a NYC based electronic solo act and producer known for their confrontational performances and explicit lyrics. No Bra was founded in east London in 2003, had an underground hit with the song “Munchausen”, has released 3 full length albums, and has collaborated with musicians and artists like Arca, Mykki Blanco, Wolfgang Tillmans and The Raincoats. She has also written music for films and fashion shows including Vivienne Westwood where she performed at the AW2020 show.
Born in the cold turnip winter of 47, the songs of the Trümmerfrauen and the gentle swaying in the willow branches helped him to thaw. His great-uncle Onkel Klopstock warned the man who grew up with an ardent love of music: “The only thing that helps against the prevalence of artists is their arrest and the burning of their works.” Today he stands there, unbowed by the north wind and false vanity, scratching his creaky board.
