Danke Berlin!!

Vielen dank an alle leute!! Volksbühne Roter Salon full, my Maureen full, my heart full! So many years working to get here, to have Berlin by my side. Fulfilled! …the performance was ending with a live video recording the end of the show itself, now I am here in my room, uploading this video one day after the performance. So the performance continues with you watching it in your room… So contemporary!!!

Yeah! My first review in a German cultural magazine. Thanks Zitty!! 6 years already in Berlin 24/7 focused in my music! …Very slowly I go penetrating into the unpenetrable, overpopulated and rotten Berlin’s musical scene. Penetración perpetrada! I’m so content! (Who is Andreas by the way??)

Today is the day, my biggest concert to date. This is over… these last 6 years I did nothing else, but now life has to continue, I have to go out of the streets. I have to go back to normal life.

ecce cello at Volksbühne 09.09.2016

She is my Maureen, my dancer. There’s always been a dancer in my life. For more than 35 years she has been devoted to the dance, a profession even tougher than the green berets special forces. She will be by my side becoming a cello or whatever it takes. She will be by my side next Firday Sept. 9th in Volksbühne Roter Salon. So many years working to get there! Kommt mit!

Fertig!

Finally I finished editing my series “three sacred pieces: I. inferno II. purgatorio III. paradiso”. Provably a work that condenses all my relationship with the cello.. and also the relationship that I had which other arts, as I did theater against the word, I was a dancer against the body, and I am a cellist against the cello. I don’t know other way to go to the core of things. I discovered all this work with the cello many years ago, right when I met the Spanish playwright, actress and director Angelica, so this work is dedicated to her.

I am back to internet

I also read that the most famous Spanish youtuber tweeted “Lemonade” some days ago, and this got more than 1,000,000 retweets, the 3er most re-tweeted tweet in history.

Two weeks without connecting to a wifi! When I was 22 I trowed away my TV. I was so proud. Since then I don’t have TV. But then internet came, without being aware of how it happened, it became even worse than television. I had the illusion that the use I do of internet was under control, that it was useful and also important for the development of my work. But even if I run 3 websites, sell stuff online and use it to book and distributing my work, even so, I admit neither I am prepared nor have the tools to keep this shit under control.

hey! First attempt to have a German text about my work, thanks to Kerstin (Guten Besserung!), Juri and Ladis. If you are German and you see anything that sounds weird or could be better, please, let me know! Dankeeeeeee
———–
Die Musik von ecce cello feiert das Leben mit einem energischen Pessimismus, voller Humor und Smertz. Unter Verwendung der Zusammenführung von klassischer Musik und technologischer Welt von heute; the cello of the fucking futre. Seit 1995 untersucht der spanische Cellist David Fernández den kraftvollen Sound und die Präsenz des Cellos, gefiltert durch seine Erfahrung als Darsteller in Tanz und Theater. In der Verwendung von drei Tablets, einem Smartphone und einem elektrischen Cello hat Fernández ein Gerät gebaut, das mit einem eigenständigen Ausdruck die Grenzen der heutigen Technologie herausfordert. Ecce cello hat 2 CDs mit Originalkompositionen aufgenommen und produziert (Sunless in 2011 und Pocket-Rhapsody im Jahr 2015), und wird diesen Herbst ein neues Album veröffentlichen.

David Fernández ist ein spanischer Tänzer, Schauspieler und Cellist, sowie ein frustrierter Erfinder. Er hat unter anderem mit Angelica Liddell, Calixto Bieito, La Ribot, Robert Lepage, La Fura dels Baus und Rossy de Palma gearbeitet. Seitens der spanischen Presse gab es viel Anerkennung für seine erstaunlichen Theateraufführungen. Durch 15 verschiedene Produktionen mit seiner eigenen Gruppe etablierte er sich auch als Autor und Regisseur. Fernández integriert moderne Alltags-Technologien in seine Werke, die noch immer durch die klassische Musik geprägt sind. Seit 2010 lebt und arbeitet er in Berlin. Er widmet sich ausschließlich seinem Instrument: dem Cello.

Maureen Lopez ist eine spanische Tänzerin und Performerin. Ihre Ausbildung erhielt sie unter anderem im Royal Ballet und der Rambert School in London. Sie lebt in Berlin und arbeitet mit Sasha Waltz & Guests. Lopez hat auch mit Carles Santos, La Fura dels Baus, Cisco Aznar, Tania Carvahlo, Abraham Hurtado und Sharon Fridman gearbeitet.

Good vibes

Some good words for these two companies: http://takt.eu and http://printsafari.com. 500 CDs of my first recording “Sunless” (which makes 3.000 sold!!) arrived yesterday. They are perfectly produced, packet and delivered to my place for 260€. omg. What’s even more astonishing, the company that produces them, charged me only once I had them at home. They helped me with all steps, and were always nice and positive: Thanks Piotr and Karolina!! Here their contact: pbalsamski [at] takt.eu

Also I got 1.000 postcards for just 50€, it’s time to make ecce cello more visible out there. printsafari online procedure was perfect. I know this post seems shity advertisement, but it’s not. It was really hard to find these guys working at these prices with this quality, so I wanted to share in case you want to produce your own shit. They work all over Europe, now there’s no excuse. MOVE YOUR ASS! Do it!! Come on!!
