Back in September 2018 I have been invited to play a show at the Mapping Possibilities VI festival in Cairo. This show took place at the Cinema Zawya and it was an anniversary show for Pro Helvetia Cairo. The idea of the Mapping Possibilities festivals is to play a live show supported by strong visuals. My Visual Artist was Mostafa El Baroody. So arm yourself with good headphones and while you are listening to this album just imagine crazy visuals. Some of the original works by Mostafa can be seen on my webpage.
My special thanks go to Rami Abadir, Slam Shabana, Peter Fares (Pro Helvetia Cairo), Weldroid, Mostafa El Baroody, Arne Luttropp, Joel Gilardini, Helge Kaul, Niculin Barandun, Ismael, Aly Nabil, Adriano Orrù and Sara Hochuli.

My idea behind the EndTitles.Kitchen.Lab concert was to place the artist in my café behind the bar, right there where I used to stand with my team and to let him play his set. Well, this worked out pretty well. Thank you Joel and Chihei for this outstanding set yesterday and huge thanks to all the helpers and the audience.
See you next time :-)
Chihei Hatakeyama (畠山地平) is a sound artist and musician living on the outskirts of Tokyo. Hatakeyama’s music is characteristically very slow, composed by repeatedly processing guitars, pianos, and vibraphones on a laptop. The result is a mix of droning chords and sparse single instruments rising above the mix. His music may be classified as either post-ambient experimental music or new-age music. Chihei Hatakeyama has released over 19 albums as of 2013 including a 12″ split with Vida Vojic on First Terrace Records in 2018.
Joel Gilardini is an experimental guitarist and sound designer, based in Zurich. Being a self-tough guitarist, and driven by the urge and the will to experiment with sounds, Joel followed a very peculiar path which lead him over a broad range of sound fields, touching different musical attitudes and genres like metal, ambient, doom, dub, and noise. By using live‐looping, improvisation and instant composition techniques, Joel creates a very unique biosphere, where these elements are constantly blended together, giving birth and shape to continuously morphing soundscapes and moods.Pre-Release-Show of his new album: Against Heatwaves
