Edition of 300 copies, gatefold sleeve. These two well-known Hamburg cook-artists have been stirring in the same pots for 25 years - only! with different spoons. One, the young man, forces his whisk into the sweetest dishes & conjures up delicious dishes - even from the spoiled remains of fish - for the thousands and thousands of hungry mouths.  The other, the old gurnard, first pushes his wooden spoon into the humming depths of a beehive to the end of the stem, before enraptured dragging it through the furrows. As honorable party members of the KED, Kommunistische Einheitspartei Deutschlands, and as the driving force behind the „Margot Honecker Liedertafel“, they are old companions and have tasted each other‘s delicacies extensively. Here, for the first time, they can pool their culinary skills in a common dish!  In this series, the recordings and documents of the actors of the NNOI Festival gather and reveal the primitive anatomy of the NNOI that sinks onto the frosted glass of nature, like the printing ink unconscious in the letters of the newspaper.  Ditterich von Euler-Donnersperg - side: 8 unreleased tracks from his wild beehive. 

Felix Kubin - side: Felix Kubin accompanies René Clair‘s silent film »Entr’acte« from 1924 live with a new electro-acoustic soundtrack, which refers to the surreal cho- reography, the contrasts in content and the fast editing sequences of the film in rhythmic cut-ups. Rene Clair‘s film „Entr‘acte“ from 1924 is a real jewel of surrealism and is largely unknown to this day. The director radically experiments with cinematographic effects, provokes absurd exaggerations, which sometimes take on blasphemous proportions, and is not afraid to commit violence. The staff of actors is made up of famous artists such as Erik Satie, Francis Picabia and Marcel Duchamp, who, quite self-ironically, bounce through the image rather than stride. Men and women roles are reversed, a death procession turns into a roller coaster ride. The bizarre humor of the film also testifies, among other things, to the artistic daring of its time

Ditterich von Euler-Donnersperg and Felix Kubin have produced a split EP for 90%WASSER. On the A-side, the first musician presents 8 short and interesting productions, lasting 2-4 minutes each. On the B-side, Kubin has set a cohesive, electroacoustic composition that is just over 17 minutes long. The project originates from NNOI, an art and experimental music festival that took place in 2019 between Zernikow and Burow, a location some 70 km from Berlin. This release is the first of a four planned festivals, including such remarkable artists as Rashad Becker, Robert Schalinski, Asmus Tietchens, Frieder Butzmann and Air Cushion Finish. The design of the whole series is based on the drawings of Frank Diersch, an artist whose work was presented in several exhibitions in important galleries and museums.Aas WHITECONCEPTS. Ditterich von Euler-Donnersperg is extremely at ease with tickings, piercing effects, suctions and unpredictable passages. His tracks, despite their shortness, can be easily enjoyed as a progressive continuum, without sounding boring or repetitive. This experimentalist always knows what he is doing: he is definitely an expert electroacoustic musician, at ease with different techniques and clearly able to make mixes in an artisanal but refined way, with great control over volume and musicality. On the other hand, Felix Kubin works on a classic work of Dadaist cinema, Entr’acte (1924). He has totally rewritten the music, with a new soundtrack somehow retaining the weird inspiration of the original choreography. The movie includes totems of the avant-garde movement: Erik Satie and Francis Picabia, Marcel Duchamp and Man Ray. The original music of Entr’acte was written by Satie and performed in an orchestra hall. Given the ironical and rhythmic character of the original version, the remake by Kubin is undoubtedly more abstract and conceptual. The approach is original and contemporary, but still within the framework of the historical avant-garde, which clearly has never stopped releasing energy and influence.
