january 28 - 1999
coming to speak about the can solo projects tour through germany from march
19, berlin, columbia halle
24, hamburg, g1
26, cologne, palladium and
28, frankfurt, jahrhunderhalle
to my knowlwdge it was only emmerson, lake and palmer who have done something similar as can is initiating this time - apart from the totally differring tastes of course. each member will present his project on stage he is momentarily bound in. it is due to the 30th anniversary of the group and according to this event some long awaited products will be released in a can box for the start consisting of
1. new can book
2. a live double cd
3. a video documentation including the legendary free concert from 1972 in cologne
there are so many can live bootlegs circulating in bad quality that this live cd really became necessary. live excitement from the beginning of the seventies and good quality guaranteed - to what i was told( havenít heard anything yet).
the video cassette will contain lots of material from the rite time production 1987/89 shot in michael karoli's outer space studio near nice which was never shown before. DoRo film is in charge of it and this might be also a guarantee for professional made stuff.
the new can book is held in three languages(german/english/french) and consists mainly of interviews made specially for the book looking back the last 30 years by each member in his own sight. there is also an analysis of the recording situation of peking o from tago mago, an essay of the can virus influencing new generations, meanwhile the third followed by comments from the sacrelege remixers. last not least a discography with statements of duncan fallowell and rob young - and not to forget what the can mother, hildegard has to say after all. And all these pictures from everywhen and everywhere and...
and how is magazine succeeding? some of our imaginations have to get necessarily corrected - the technique is setting the limits. still this will become a real adventure for all of us. yo= has to obtain his own unchangable voice apart from whoever is lending him his alterego. a rough and slow speaking garbage voice could be the solution especially when the character is singing! some bugs have to be repaired in the software of the VRML worlds and finding a beamer with 6000 ansi lumen is pretty difficult and expensive, but not impossible!
and here come the good news: there will be a webcasting from the whole tour: if you want to get hold of a ticket for the solo projects tour you should dial the ticket hotline in germany : 0180 - 521 2512.
before i forget : donít expect can playing live t o g e t h e r! this will only end up in disappointment, believe me!
Cheers and bye for now.
