Ladies and Gentlebots, Happiness & health to you all! Without much further ado, here’s the first act:
We have a gig! we have a gig!
The Coffeebots will premiere the first part of „Never Mind the Gig Work…“ at the Congress (äh, actually: Remote Chaos Experience) rC3 on December 29. 2021 – 22:00h in the c-base stream.
YES! IT IS THE WORLD PREMIERE of our marionette puppet extravaganza full of robots, coffee, punkrock space shanties, and algorithmic capitalism. In the language of the Internet: Easy English with heavy accents and lots of technobabble. It will be the first of three acts that we videotaped at the c-base with the c-atre collectivdrama in december 2021. Acts two and three will follow and hopefully we can go live on stage with a real audience in the spring of 2022.
Thanks to Robert Reckin for the music, excds for re-recording and re-mixing our voices and cven for his work as lighting technician and camera operator!
It’s the end of the pandemic year 2020 so the Coffeebots chose a wonderful christmas-song by one of the greatest bands ever to sing-a-long:
Fairytale of New York by The Pogues
Of course the filming took place considering the social distancing rules and it kind of matches the beautiful lyrics.
Thanks a lot to Miriam who helped puppeteering and filming.
Whish you all nice and relaxed holidays and a geat 2021!
Around the year 2000 a few friends and me had a band called „Elektrosmog“. So I got the domain elektrsosmog-berlin.de and with it the second one e-punk.de (that’s kind of where my nickname originated as well). It was a self-html-styled homepage with some of our songs. Well, the band split up and I continued the page as a calender for concerts and events in Berlin with a newsletter for some 50 people (who hardly ever came to the concerts or demos but always liked reading it to know what strange events were happening).
I changed the homepage to a wordpress-weblog later, linking videoclips, my vectorgraphics and the like. At some point the site got crashed and I didn’t bother enough to keep working on it. (Must have been around 2012 or so)
So now here we go with e-punk.de Version 3.0! I’m planning to put together some old stuff scattered on different platforms as an online archive, but also use it to publish new content. So I start again now, in spring 2020, with my Corona-Project. Combinig my hobbies music, theatre, animation and video using the skills I picked up over the years. So, have fun with the COFFEEBOTS!
