This time audiovisual event GO GAGA organizers – Partyzanai DJs and RUT RUT collective – had opportunity to held their event as offiacial part of German culture days in Klaipeda, a port of Lithuania.
It took place in one of ships repair hangars. Amazing place indeed. With old and new ships, cranes and surounded by water. People can get into this place only by small old bridge which disconnects this place from oldtown.
The event had strong musical and visual connection with todays sound and video artists from Germany. Metope (Michael Schwanen) presented his unique music compositions and was mostly waited guest in this GO GAGA. He is quite well know electronic music composer from Cologne (now living in Berlin), which live sets never miss experimental and melancholic sounds with very harmonical wibes. Metope releases his work in Areal and Sender labels which belong to one of best know Germany alternative electronic music labels – Kompakt. His album “Kabol” must hear to all electronic music diggers.
VJ Jans Lueg from Giraffentoast collective was the one who represented German’s modern visual language. Collective consist of four members and is dedicated to different visual works liek web design, flash animation, visuals or video clips. Giraffentoast visuals consisted of very proffesional, rich and eclectic collection. VJ Jans Lueg showed great music stimulating VJ set. It was really great to have him on stage.
GO GAGA sounds and visuals were also suplemented with local Lithuanian artists. Few Nolder is probably now most interesting and most evolving music creator from Lithuania. His deep minimalistic sounds drowned into his very own music reality. Between live sets Partyzanai DJs and DJ Elektrod Korabelnikof filled gaps with their originaly selected electronic tracks.
RUT RUT also prepared special visual set for this GO GAGA event. This collective seeks to stand out with original attidute to creating and showing visuals. Ironic, childishly made, “dirty” visuals with different pop icons of today – barbie girls, batmen, xmen, etc – are mixed with scaned sticker of cats, dogs or documentary videos from different collective trips.
After this event GO GAGA will be back in public only in Autumn, but during summer time GO GAGA dvd is going to be released.
