31.5.Friday

Tonight at LAX BAR

(A)SEXUAL MEASUREMENT // Die Vorspielservice // „Sad Hour“ at midnight

Marino Formenti aka MC LOOOOOSE measures the LAX BAR – both its physical and social dimensions. The musical material consists exclusively of music that, like the Loos Bar, was created in 1908: formerly scandalous works by Alban Berg, Arnold Schönberg, Charles Ives, Gustav Mahler, Erik Satie, and popular songs from that year, such as the lascivious “Cuddle up a Little Closer, Lovely Mine”. This material is in turn drawn through the physical/social space and measured.

Schallplatten Brigitte, the record shop which used to be located on the premises currently housing the LAX BAR,  opened its doors in 1959 and soon became a mecca for Vienna’s disc jockeys of the 60s and 70s. As a tribute to this iconic store and its founder Brigitte Komarek  – music expert and business woman  with an imperturbable sense of taste – music lovers will be able to buy vinyl there one last time: DJs from the legendary collective female:pressure play, comment and sell selected records from their their illimitable archives as well as exclusive original hits from the Brigitte inventory live! But all of this in transposed keys – LAX BAR style!

“Sad hour” again at midnight: sadder music and higher prices.

Tonight at LAX BAR

Philipp Quehenberger at the Barpiano // Jung an Tagen live (LAX BAR commission)  // „Sad Hour“ at midnight

Still at the bar piano: Philipp Quehenberger tirelessly and masterly cultivates The Art of the Fugue between Johann Sebastian Bach and The Caretaker. Jung an Tagen immerses the space in the complex soundscapes of his new composition for the LAX BAR’s multichannel sound system and makes polyrhythms collide with the tiles. Polished! „Sad Hour“ at midnight sharp, sadder music and higher prices.

17.5.Friday

Tonight at LAX BAR

Philipp Quehenberger at the bar piano // Rosa Anschütz live // “Sad hour” at midnight

At the bar piano, Philipp Quehenberger serves up some “pianistic flabbergasting” with variations from Bach’s The Art of the Fugue (simple fugues, counter-fugues, mirror fugues, shadow gaps). So fugue-ing great to play! Another highlight of the evening is Rosa Anschütz live: electronic arrangements and mesmerizing vocals. “Sad hour” begins at midnight – with sadder music and higher prices.
