Whoever is responsible for this event.....THANK YOU!!!!!! :)

I have been a fan of Allien's music for over a year now, and never got a chance to hear her live. This will be so good!

She is both attractive and intelligent:

...interview translated from german:

>>Whereby your album, to which you work straight, becomes something "very personal", describes like you it...

Ellen Allien:

There are stories, which happened to me, or which affected me - as with music evenly like that is (laughs).

... I must say to you honestly, these whole things there, with me in the studio go off...: I co-operate for one year with someone closely...Who will hear the album, will understand, what is meant. It is deep - how: deep is a bloedes word - it is stop very intensively. It is genuine. You hear sadness, you hear falling in loveness, you hear what moves us.
Love is - I believe - now times the most moving topic. With which one always said has nothing to do with Techno. For me it has to do very much with it. Romance is for me importantly, also in the music. Humanity and sinnlichkeit. Not only simply a sound, which kickt briefly - and then again away is. That does not give it for me.
Also the language belonged for me in addition, because it becomes "abstract" otherwise too, each something else thereby to imagine can. I would like actually that what I feel is further-carried also in such a way to that, which hears it. Most humans do not dare any longer to be romantically or sadly or lucky. I find it important to realize all this somehow.

>>Thus it acts with the TRACKS around "stories" out of the life...

Ellen Allien:

Auto+biographically. There is stories... (considered for a long time) - which I totally realized..., (rises and runs in the circle) where I would have howled nearly... Interesting find I that it passes straight now became possible - and only by humans, with whom I work now. But we stand straight only at the beginning.

>>Even if the TRACKS, which I know so far from your album, are in music not abstract, nevertheless the texts contained in it are quite abstract. Is it poetry or as poetry camouflaged arbitraryness?

Ellen Allien:

It is both - however nothing camouflaging. There is no nothing - nothing is camouflaged on BPitch control.

>>Explain to me please times the text line "low in me - worlds radiate deeply into you."

Ellen Allien:

Each humans possess a soul. An origin. Humans, the earth. One can pass everything on that is into us, by music, by gesturing, by poetry, by language. Then it radiates also in you. It concerns to live "altogether"! It concerns energy. I believe in many forms of energies, which we do not use correctly yet at all - and so lose.

>>Can the people reconstruct that?

Ellen Allien:

I do not know at all whether is so important. I believe, the sentences am sufficient, in order to think something thereby. To itself referred.
The TRACKS are not really minimal in music, work for it however nearly a little reservedly.
I believe, her am so reserved, because this text, this sentence, should be present. As soon as the text inside is, still more cannot purely. That became otherwise washes.

>>You are on the search for...

Ellen Allien:

... we are on the search for the "luck". Always light, always luck! Upward. No reverse gear. If we times briefly leeways, is always someone there, which catches the other one. There are very many possibilities, if we communicate only correctly with one another. And straight happens - because we move straight again all closer together. We sometime planned once to only work with people on we the support have - and no things of the money because of to make. It must make fun correctly. And us also personally somewhat bring. So and not different one...

By the way, has anyone checked out her track with Miss Kitten & The Hacker? Creepy, but fun!

I think it's called "Rippin Kitten".

Destro: I'm not sure what label it's on as I only have it on mp3.
It's DAMN good though....go grab it off soulseek.org!



TRIBE Member
*sigh* I wish I could be there..unfortunately I have to head back to London tonight :( Stupid tests!!

@m shake that ass a bit extra for me!


TRIBE Member
I've got a copy of the original Rippin Kittin track on Landomat. It's Golden Boy feat Miss Kittin from the album Or, but they just released the remixes recently. I like the original better, but they're both good.


p.s. the remixes are on landomat as well.
