JOKE LANZ :
Born in 1965 in Basel Switzerland from a Swiss father and a French mother. Based in Berlin Germany.
Joke Lanz is one of the most prolific and profound artists working in the border zones where performance and body art meet noise and improvisation.
In his Sudden Infant guise, Lanz creates a unique blend of physical sound poetry and epileptic noise bursts, using contact microphones, loops, tapes, turntables etc.
He worked as garbageman, factory worker, sales assistant, caretaker, housekeeper, carpet dealer, chicken farmer, record shop owner, night watch, sauna assistant, roadie, secretary, cleaner, nude model, part-time single father…
Major themes of his intense musical universe are childhood experiences, physical eruptions, psycho mechanisms, auto-aggression and social problems.
Drummer and composer in a wide range of styles and configurations. From solo to sextet, improvisation to composition, swing to hardcore, acoustic to electronic, she makes fun of limitations, from stylistic conventions to orchestration. In projects and collaborations with jazz, rock, world, electronic musicians as well as theatre and multimedia contemporary artists, Béatrice Graf has developed her own sound and identity over the years. At the same time, she is up to every challenge of free improvisation in myriad contexts.
