*Hardcover with Embossing. English* Week-End Fest looks back in 2022 on 10 years and encounters with over 100 international artists. Since the beginning in 2011 own fanhood has been a central element of the festival’s curators - this is how the idea came about to inform the artists about the musicians, places or encounters that have shaped them. In „I feel everything you say. I feel everything you hear“. (the title is borrowed from the song „I‘m so Green“ by Can), they tell of decisive moments and memories that still resonate today and have shaped their own artistic identity. As in the festival programme, the book succeeds in showing diverse lines and connections between them. Stephen Malkmus talks about his early love for Can, while dub producers Adrian Sherwood and Scientist tell of their deep admiration for the two inventors of dub Lee „Scratch“ Perry and King Tubby. Electronic pioneer Suzanne Ciani speaks about her first steps as a musician and her encounter with Don Buchla, to whom she owes her first job and her first synthesiser. Gilberto Gil looks back on his lifelong friendship and his most important musical partner Caetano Veloso, while the young London rapper Flohio takes us to her neighbourhood Ber- mondsey in South London. The British avant-garde guitarist Fred Frith describes his first bizarre encounter with the Sun Ra Arkestra in New York in 1979, of which Marshall Allen is a member. The latter tells how today, at the age of 98, he carries on the musical legacy of his master Sun Ra with pride and reverence. By focusing on the fan perspective of the participating artists, the book connects to the curatorial concept of the festival itself. And through their stories and anecdotes, the building blocks of a new or different oral history of recent music history. I feel everything you say. I feel everything you hear.
