Artist Info

Wooden Veil

Wooden Veil
Image from Discogs
Powered by Audioscrobbler™A Berlin-based art group formed in 2007. Inspired by the shared hauntedness of their respective homelands, they combine elements from forgotten and misremembered traditions to create a microcosmic world which only they inhabit, complete with its own symbols, clothing, food & shelters. Performances, installations & videos are characterized by an expansive wardrobe of ritual dress, plus the creation of shrines, relics & talismans, used to create music.

The group consists of artists Marcel Türkowsky (composer, founder of Snake Figures Arkestra, Cones, UUHUU, collaborations with Datashock & Christoph Heemann), Hanayo (photographer / singer, collaborating with the likes of Christoph Schlingensief, Merzbow, Red Crayola & Kai Althoff), Christopher Kline, (Snakebraid, †, Night Music & Soft Peace), Dominik Noé (member of krautrock legends Lustfaust) & Jan Pfeiffer (Songs For Rocks, Soft Peace & Purple). www.woodenveil.com

"Belonging to a world that is at once pre-millenial and post-apocalyptic, Wooden Veil’s music is the drumbeat of an ancient yet technological past channeled through the sounds of a post-human race. Masked and costumed, the players invoke a musical force as a shaman would a ghost. Collecting rhythm like wind collecting a storm, Wooden Veil gives grand form to noise – they make it an event. Drums, drones, harmonies and screams clamor in their songs, erupting now and again into a plainsong that rings just long enough for a melody to take shape, before it dissolves back into sonic entropy." - Carson Chan, PROGRAM – Initiative for Art + Architecture, Berlin

"Playing like a semiotic mist, Wooden Veil approach their performances as handmade, patchwork quilt-like structures with emphasis on showing the lines of assembly, sewing together mythologies, traditional song, craft, ritual and acoustics." - Steven Warwick (Heatsick, Birds of Delay)

To understand: Hold right hand, cupped near right ear; turn hand back and forth slightly with wrist. Bring left hand to opposite eye with the second finger pointing in the direction one is looking. With index and thumb of right hand, form an incomplete circle, space of one inch between tips; hold hand towards the earth, then move it in a curve across the heavens and back toward the horizon.
