Fresh news from ¡-PAHL-!. The German project has launched a new video “Smash the Hope”.

On top of that they will perform live at Kunstkraftwerk, one of the largest and renowned audiovisual locations in Europe. The concert will take place on September 17th and it will be the first time that the electronic art and music project from Leipzig will take the stage. The project comes to the Kunstkraftwerk with over 1,000 minutes of video footage, aired on 15 projection screens with 1.5 hours of music.

The new video “Smash the Hope” is a remake of Stanley Cubrick’s classic black-white movie adapted to the recent political situation of the year 2022.

Here’s the video.

The project dates already from November 2014 when the three members united (Olaf, Leo and Peter), each of them dissatisfied with their current musical projects. “Tired of the erratic behavior of their peers” as they describe it, they started a joint musical project. The first studio session took place in January 2015.

The trio released its debut album, “I”, earlier this year. The band consists of Olaf Parusel, Leonardo von Leibnitz, and Peter Hardlab. On “I” they also got the help from Viola Manigk who delivered some extra vocals.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
