  • 'Side effects' is a 45 minutes radio feature about the impact of the Covid 19 pandemic on the practice of experimental musicians, the local scenes and experiences with formats like streaming and networked performances. Based on my personal experience with the (also positive) side effects of the pandemic-related restrictions of concert life and everyday creation, I interviewed international artists about their thoughts on the topic. Have new fields of artistic activity opened up? What remains? Are there possibly positive developments in post-pandemic creative endeavors?

    The main part of the music featured in the podcast is a concert of Namioto (which are Juliette Meyer and Yves Arques) with Luise Volkmann and Felix Mayer as guests, recorded at LOFT in Cologne in July 2022.
    Further music consists of pieces and sketches from Birgit Ulher, Majid Araim and Tetsuro Hori.

    The project was made possible through a scholarship by Musikfonds e.V.

Felix Mayer

Felix Mayer, born in 1990 in Donaueschingen, is active as a trombonist, composer and sound artist in the field of experimental music. In bands, collectives and ad-hoc groups, he explores the boundaries of
improvisational and instrumental practice. In composed works he deals with alternative notation such as text and game pieces, video scores and improvisation concepts. He also works in interdisciplinary contexts with literature, dance and performance and organises the concert series “sonopol”. In installative, site-specific works, he deals with the possibilities of the success of communication, connection and relationship via (always) alienating aids. Starting from pandemic-related shifts and alienations as well as the experiences of isolation and the confrontation with the relationship between closeness and distance, he explores, among other things, the possibilities that arise through the processing and transformation of sound material with tin can telephones.
