DysFunkt!onal is back!

The maverick live music and digital art deconstruction is now a bi-monthly fixture at Studio-80, Amsterdam.

Saturday 5th of November [20:00 - 04:00]
Studio-80, Rembrandtplein 17, Amsterdam.

What's this all about? The interface by which the worlds of visual art and sound art increasingly interleave has become known by the technological phenomena of 'convergence' - a top-down movement driven by the digital process, gathering all media practitioners at the point of the cursor and the pixel with a shared vision of file structures, output resolution, cut, splice and loop.

However, in the scramble to keep pace with the changing paradigm many have overlooked the fact that the most compelling exchange is not technologically driven, but takes place bottom-up; a dialogue of forms at the point of source; at composition, language, manipulating information, understanding structures, patterns and processes, organising stimuli, deconstructing nature, remapping the rigid grid of space and time. Whether in film, design, music or science, this is the point at which all actions become sound, all words become colour and all music becomes light.

There has been a great deal of activity at No Immortal over the past year, much of it behind the scenes; so expect a slew of announcements in due course! In the meantime, if you haven’t done so already, please check out some of the new arrivals at our webstore. Ben Sheppee’s Hidden Partition DVD is currently being talked up a storm in the press, receiving a coveted ‘DVD of the Month’ from DJ Magazine, amongst other supporters. D-Fuse are onto huge things with that floppy fringed maestro, Beck, at the moment, so they can be forgiven for not schmoozing with us at the usual crack parties of late. See what all the fuss is about on the D-Tonate_00 DVD here. Also, don’t forget that we still have a few remaining copies of the excellent Resonance FM compilation, Flatpack Antenna. When they’re gone, they’re gone, etc...

Gig-wise, we have some bedouin action on the radar, for the London crew:

Bedouin Ascent sings more of his broken songs at BAD LOOK BOUDOIR! a party thrown by Subterfuge at the rather lovely Battersea Arts Centre.

Laugh. Cry. Be moved. Be curious. Ask for tissues. Feel adventurous. Feel exhausted. Feel debased!

The autonomous polysexual cabaret with a punk rock ethic climaxes its first year celebrations with a special performance at BAC. Bad Look Boudoir will be one of the most memorable appearances from this star-mangled band of outlaw renegades. Will contain nudity, swearing and men from Texas. Over 18’s only.

Lots of djs, vjs, live bands, cabaret, etc. For a full listing see:

2nd May 2004

We're greatly saddened by the tragic loss of our friend Casper Pound of Rising High. Casper passed away in his sleep on Friday after a very difficult number of years recovering from major surgery. His passing comes at a time when he was once again beginning to look to the future with his characteristic infectious enthusiasm and unique vision. Casper was an inspiration to a generation of music lovers throughout the world and to all those he worked, played and partied with. His open heart, open mind and generous spirit will be sorely missed, but never forgotten. We know at least that somewhere, Casper Pound will still be Flying High. Our thoughts go out to his family and his beloved daughter, Sapho. You did it mate, rest in peace.

On Friday May 14 2004 Icarus celebrate the launch of their new album "I Tweet the Birdy Electric"

Icarus will be joined by Dysfunktional Beats founder Bedouin Ascent, and newly formed free jazz trio arthurs.dakiz.westerhus, conspiring to bring several takes on a similar theme of exploratory and risky improvisation via a great many speakers, the nature of their instruments - laptops, technics, trumpets, 909s - falling gladly out of focus in the wake of the aural mayhem. Expect chaos, unplanned melodies and bird sounds.

Further entertainment will be supplied by the Parnassus Crew's master of hardcore, darkcore, and those wicked quirky beats that nobody else has got, DJ Laurent Duriaud, and rising star of avant garde hip hop, DJ Woof Wan Bau, as well as Leaf Label chief DJ Tony Morley and a special guest who needs no introduction, DJ Kieran Hebden. Cine, still and video visuals will be provided by Parnassus visual artists and their guests

This ain't no gathering of eclectic minds! – this is the new science of urban mixology.

Where did all the heart go? We're here to tell you that music was once wild, dangerous and free.

'..a compelling power unique in English Jazz'. [The Wire]
Almost impossible to categorize they swing from virtuosic jazz to gritty funk with freedom and movement, veering into leftfield territory and returning with snappy anthem-like tunes. Unpredictable and exciting, they carved a unique style in the UK and won praise from critics at home and abroad. Sometimes a maelstrom of sound, other times a hypnotic theme over backbeats, their eclectic fusion of style foreshadowed the move towards mixing influences in much of today's modern music. With 8 albums and extensive touring in Europe, and the USA in the late 80's and 90's and a 'Best British Band at the British International Jazz Awards in '91' they are back after several years of individual projects.

JAN KOPINSKI tenor/alto saxophones
STEVE ILIFFE keyboards



A is for Anarchy, B is for Blurt, A Bee in The Bonnet, a Boot where it Hurts...Ted Milton's Demonic sax, and shouty, dadaist poetry, anguished & passionate psycho-funk, afro punk, fake no-wave trio.

Over a period of 17 years the mighty, mythic Blurt have festered and fulminated, swaggered and evolved into an unusual and uncompromising beast capable of a magic and sublime, dissonant and confrontationalist music. Seminal influence on the contemporary dance scene, gyrating & ranting harder than ever...



Campaq Velocet are clubbers Pete, Agre and Lascelles who've take an unscheduled detour through left-field guitar music - energised by hip hop artists like School D and Public Enemy, as well as the massive signal beamed out of the Detroit techno scene.



Kid 'groove' a'la abstract continues his search for the wrecked angle. Hard, oblique, jazz and electronics. Catch him live in the mix.

Radio 1 Hype:

Bedouin Ascent is the ‘rhythm as melody’/digital improvisation project of KINGSUK BISWAS, Digital/Art/Electronica Pioneer. For the last decade he has been OUT THERE mixing live and digital, West African percussion with North Indian classical modes and chaos and quantum theories with Zen and Tao. His list of collaborators is so impressive that you can frankly only bow down and rock to the beats in his presence. They include Bill Laswell, David Toop, Zakir Hussein, Jon Hassel, Plaid, Anokha and Talvin Singh. His new EP, JUNK FORCE, came out in late November on the No Immortal label, destined to rock our world in a fundamental manner. Catch him live on laptop and synths at ONE WORLD LIVE at Notting Hill Arts Club on January the 3rd, 2002.

DysFunkt!onal_live.arts >> [2001]

in these times of global patriarchal imperialism and rampant unilateralism the world needs a dose of non-linearity like never before. no immortal has been busy putting together an amazing programme of events to highlight our interests and take great music and performances to all corners of the uk. if you want to dismantle your personal regime let our beats start you on that journey. remember - this is DysFunkt!on by form not force. [new interviews and galleries posted]

"Une soirée de musique électronique improvisée live qui transporte au-delà des frontières du conformisme. Des artistes du monde entier, aux influences variées (jazz, d'n'bass, indian classical) unis par le désir de désintellectualiser la musique electronique."

00] DysFunkt!onal_Beats >>

- Essentially it's a platform to showcase live, improvised electronic music and visual artforms which explore more non-linear forms and structures than in regular commercial dance music (with a particular emphasis on rhythmic deconstruction, jazz and fusion sensibilities). Although experimental, these events are intended to be very accessible and above all a great party atmosphere for those not necessarily wishing to engage intellectually. It's all about the science of the 'cut-up', whether in music, visuals, design or writing for example.

- This is also an opportunity to showcase 'freestyle' live sound which is not often associated with the rigid structures of electronic dance music. Musically it's about arrangements falling apart and coming back together - invoking a perpetual and dynamic condition - like a continual series of 'mistakes' with no real agenda, other than the fact that it sounds good. The freedom of chance; the opportunity for chance interaction within musical structures to build their own narrative; the chance for artists to take some risks they wouldn't normally be able to and collaborate on new work. Anything's possible. That's both the danger and the beauty!

...and while we get wild on the live circuit No Immortal is pleased to announce that the Bedouin Ascent EP, Junk_force, is making it's way onto record store shelves with accolades and airplay from the likes of John Peel, Coldcut, Nick Luscombe, Mr Scruff and a host of others.

Kingsuk Biswas continues his no-fi games with rhythms so irrational they playfully tease the linear structure of sequenced music to produce the exquisite effect of perpetual rolling. Spiraling currents pulled by ever tighter forces in an open field of possibility. Turning, turning... Lost forever in the loving warmth of urban noise and the sweetest tension.
While the whole of the dance arena concerns itself with the mechanical rhythm of propulsion - like drones synched to a universal clock, locked in constant forward motion - junk_force adopts a wholly lateral stance. Beats spiral, moving, at once, forward, sideways and backwards - like the adrenaline rush of a brisk young breeze, constantly changing direction - because there's just so much sky! Change is, ultimately, the only constant.

+ Bedouin Ascent album 'Jerx' available early 2003

+ Apache 61 'china_syntax' ep available Oct 2002
