4.5.2019   18h30   Kostnix Soli Ball II

Zum zweiten (oder dritten Mal, je nach dem..) findet der weit über die Grenzen Wiens hinaus bekannte Kostnix Soli Ball statt. Der große Erfolg läßt uns weiter feiern und tanzen und uns erfreuen, unsere Hirne nicht dem Geld unterworfen zu haben, sondern "Friede, Freude und Eier- oder eierlose Kuchen" leben zu wollen. Bringt also eure Geldreste, damit wir Vermieter und Stromlieferanten damit füttern können.
Come & Join the Party.
Am Beginn um 18h30 eine literarisch-musikalische Einlage von Franz.


28.4.2019   Enlass 19h30, Beginn wenns passt


is a collaboration between two prolific Hungarian sound
artists. The industrial noise warlock Rovar17 and the rhythmic hermit XPLDNGLKE.
Together the duo creates soundscapes that exists somewhere between catatonic phantom
noises and stimulating beats.
It's all an eternal struggle for the control over the mixer, or just infinite loops of the secular
idleness at the first morning after lobotomy.

O Reche Modo aka Romano Krzych (fr/cz) &
Popvré a za peníze (cz)

O Reche Modo aka Romano Krzych (fr/cz) ....Entered into music by saxophone and improvised music, Rkz then turned to forms of
expression that were far less aesthetic and more unclassifiable, in search of an in-
situ transcription of mental states, sometimes with a somehow political color....

Popvré a za peníze / Iveta Plná (cz)
Guitar strings touched or badly scraped by bow, electric brushes and razors,
vibrations thwarted by a few small objects, low-end Casios, harmonica, and other
unidentified sounds, the music of Popvré a za Penize, is of a staticity strange, a sort
of irresolute waiting circulates around these surprising associations, this prolixity of
landscapes where musical sounds and noise, parasites, intersect and interchange

Passend zur Ball-Saison veranstaltet der Kostnix-Laden einen Ball! Und zwar

den Kostnix-Soli-Ball!
Was heißt das?
Wir schwingen das Tanzbein, kleiden uns in schicken und lustigen Gewändern (optional) und spenden für einen guten Zweck. Der gute Zweck ist, dass der Fortbestand des Kostnix-Ladens gesichert ist. Wie ihr wisst, finanziert sich der Kostnix-Laden über freiwillige Spenden; diese benötigen wir für Miete, Strom, Internet, Reparaturen etc. Events auf einer "freiwilligen Spende"-Basis zu veranstalten entspricht dem langfristige Ziel des Kostnix-Laden, dass Menschen nicht mehr tauschen, sondern teilen und nicht konkurrieren, sondern zusammenhelfen!
Ihr findet den Kostnix-Laden toll? Die Idee ist spitze? Dann lasst uns doch zusammenhelfen, damit die Miete weiterhin gesichert ist :))

Wie bei der Faschingsparty wird es auch wieder Snacks und Getränke geben - bitte gerne auch was mitbringen :) alles gegen eine freiwillige Spende.

Es wird auch wieder feinste Musik von unserem "Haus"DJ geben! Diesmal gibt es aber auch die Möglichkeit, die eigenen Vinyls mitzubringen und sich von David in einem "DJ Workshop" erklären lassen, wie die Turntables zu bedienen sind.

P.s.: schicke, lustige und schräge "Ball"Kleidung findet ihr natürlich im Kostnix-Laden. Also ein adequates Kleiden kann auch erst während dem Ball stattfinden 😋

EDIT: es gibt einen zusätzlichen Programmpunkt, nämlich eine wundervolle musikalische Lesung zum Thema Kinder, die um 18:00 startet:
"Kinderglück. Kinderleid. Kinder: Lieder und Worte von Kindern und über Kinder"

Liebste Menschen!! :)

Wir laden euch herzlich ein zu unserem Kennenlern-Brunch und Ausverkauf!
Warum, wozu das Ganze?
Ganz einfach, wir wollen uns Zeit nehmen, um Interessenten über den Kostnix-Laden zu informieren und euch zu zeigen, wie ihr mithelfen und unterstützen könnt. Der Kostnix-Laden ist ein gemeinnütziges Projekt, das nur funktionieren kann, wenn sich genügend Leute einbringen. Und wir wollen diesen Sonntag bei Punsch und Kuchen nutzen, um euch zu informieren und näher kennenzulernen :)

Und der "Ausverkauf"?
Richtig, wir verkaufen nichts. Aber wir sind randvoll und wollen deswegen auch diesen Sonntag nutzen, um ein bisschen Platz zu schaffen. Sucht ihr noch Last-Minute Weihnachtsgeschenke oder braucht ihr noch Winterkleidung oder neue, spannende Lektüre für die grauen Tage? Dann seid ihr bei uns genau richtig.

Kurz zusammengefasst, es wird folgendes geben:
- Informationen über den KNL und wie man mithelfen kann
- Punsch und andere Leckerein (bitte auch selbst was mitbringen :) )
- Kostnix Dinge wie Bücher, Kleidung, Haushaltsgeräte, Geschirr, Technik, CD's, DVD's, Dekoartikel und vieles mehr.

ENZYM   Louis Pierre-Lacouture

Konzert, basierend auf den Ideen zur in der Folge beschriebenen CD.
"Enzym pursues his composition work through minuscule fragments.
While he was creating the elementary sounds that populate Archaeabacteria, his first album, a question arose between his keyboards and eardrums which has never left him; could an even more elemental fragment still be considered music?
Enzym sings primitive hymns where glitches, cutouts, naive melodies and ecstatic piano chords meet.
Using repetition, symbiosis and mutations, he propels these initial fragments towards a choreographic destiny."

Matthias Kampf is an improvising musician who explores ecstatic and entrancing music through percussion, vocal drones and live processing.
As a soloist (under the moniker THRVS) he has performed throughout Europe and has been active in several international improvisational collaborations.
His most recent project involved time-processed Livonian folk songs, looped and transformed into tribal drones and perception-bending, psycho-acoustic sonic "rituals" based on West African and Arabic trance induction approaches.
In his work, time, perception, physical and sonic space all become expandable, interchangable variables that blend together in a sort of musical Dikhr, in which ecstasy and trance become the gravitational centre.
Matthias is a member of various groups such as the impro drone/noise duo BOORII, the ambient/drone trio Meru and The Soft Power Ensemble of Vienna, a 12 piece improvisation-ensemble, as well as the now defunct experimental rock band Neonstream.

During the tour, the Stigmatic Destruction collective are presented to the audience

with 3 different sets:

-Musique concréte with DIY instruments

-Experimental noise with body Art performance

-A special DJ Set and Visuals by Stigmatic Destruction, MaN and Rovar17 & Syporca Whandal feat. Zopán Nagy



Musique concréte with DIY instruments


We are the gods of the lambs! The unseen substance manifests itself in the darkness of the instinct by us. The seeds of Lucifer's doubt sink into the euphoria of the mud by us. We dream of getting home while we fall to the bottom of the flatness of moldy walls. Our evening prayer is: only man can give birth to a god for the throne.


Experimental Noise with Body Art Performance


Pairing noise music with performance art, it often works with astonishing musical and visual elements. Caution! This show is suitable for disrupting tranquility. We do a very massive above 18 years body art performance - that may happen we use nude female body, black paints and blood. Rovar17 is responsible for music, while the performers are Syporca Whandal and Zopán Nagy.



The phenomenon of Rovar17 (Insect17 in English) was born 31st of August 2002, what is basically Kálmán Pongrácz's solo project, but different kinds of collaboration often occur with musicians, visual artists, performers as well as theater, so Rovar17 is a member of several bands as ParaNoiZ, Royal Hungarian Noisemakers or the Százaségő was (from 2013 to 2015).


Zopán Nagy

Zopán Nagy is a poet, photographer and artist. A spiritual man with wide-ranging knowledge and sophistication. Like a man of paradoxes - he screws one more thing: as if try to take a photo of Hell in Heaven. He follows his own ghostly visions. It fuses and provokes the chance. (Tibor Miltényi)án


Syporca Whandal

Syporca Whandal a multidisciplinary experimental artist who focuses primarily on visual arts - exhibitions, performances and visual presence, but she deals with writing, poems, fanzines, and

sound poetry. The works surrounded that Babel sized tower of shit where, our roar is not heard by the non-existent destroyer... Who can only digest with the ruthless resignations of humanity to himself, which is pushing down on our throat right now... The creative egoism goes beyond the fictitious labyrinth of linear goals. "Fuck your money! I want your soul! "

Anyone who stay human will be immortal in the rest.



Special DJ Set & Visuals


MaN from Pent Leditgrant Memorial Orchestra frames the event with a slide show as a visual artist and selector. emlekzenekar/group-67304


Last but not least, Gellért Gádor - the former resident sound technician of the Auróra, who is now freelancer - is responsible for the perfect sound of the event.
