The BOOK….

all about Mania D, Malaria!, Matador

Extensive show of works by the three iconographic underground bands

The book project “M_Dokumente” focuses on the explicitly female perspective of the all-female bands Mania D., Malaria! and Matador on the West Berlin music and art scene from the late 1970s on.

The three bands around Bartel, Köster and Gut played concerts, released records and toured around the world in different formations from 1979 on. What stood out and was new was the self-determined appearance of the musicians, which was reflected in their music and lyrics as well as in their unique style and the genre-crossing approach of “more art in the music, more music in the art”. To this day, the three M_Bands are considered visionary, they shaped a new image of women in pop culture and are pioneers and role models for important and necessary emancipatory movements in the music industry.

With oral history documentary by and with Beate Bartel, Gudrun Gut and Bettina Köster as well as contributions by Nick Cave, Diedrich Diederichsen, Christine Hahn, Peter Bömmels, Mark Reeder, Scumeck Sabottka, and Annett Scheffel.

In German and English.

RESONANZ 2.0 von Gudrun Gut

Uraufführung der neuen Klangarbeit für den MODELLRAUM THEATERU-Bahn-Station Heinrich-Heine-Allee, (Zugang Heinrich-Heine Passage).

12. Februar 2021 – 28. März 2021

Für den Modellraum Theater im U-Bahnhof Heinrich-Allee hat Gudrun Gut eine atmosphärische Collage teils naturalistischer teils abstrakter Sounds komponiert.

Die drei Kanal-Installation lässt uns drei subtil komponierte und durchaus verschiedene Klangwelten durchqueren, die sich in ihrer fließenden, sich ständig versetzenden Überlagerung fast unmerklich zu einer detailreichen, mal analog, mal digital anmutenden, dennoch kohärenten Klang-Landschaft verdichten.

Vogelstimmen verschmelzen mit treibenden clubbigen Beats wie in besten Zeiten durchtanzter Raves unter freiem Himmel, wenn die Morgendämmerung am Horizont die wärmende Sonne ankündigt und der Hahn zum gemeinsamen Frühstück ruft.

Metallisch kühle Rhythmen harmonieren mit den ratternd loopenden Rolltreppen, vermengen sich mit hypnotischen Sounds archaischer oder zukünftiger Kulturen und triggern unverhofft einen Moment der Zuversicht aufs schattige Gemüt.

Es geht voran!
Klänge der Stadt. Kompositionen in Ralf Brögs Modellräumen

Dead Season Theatre

Live electronic orchestra Monika Werkstatt (Beate Bartel, Gudrun Gut, Islaja, and Pilocka Krach) meets theatre group Showcase Beat Le Mot. Together the two four-member groups take a contemporary look at the four seasons. Winter, spring, summer, autumn: In honour of the waning weather cycle, one musician and one member of Showcase Beat Le Mot take up one of the seasons, giving it shape in sound and image. The method used by the temporary music theatre collective is to alternate between fixed agreements and wild adventure. Since there’s nothing more fickle than the weather, they test out the margins of the spectacle in improvisation. Each collective provides the other with what it’s lacking: in gender, movement and technical skills. When the weathermakers step into action with their stumbling dramaturgy of quantum leaps and free association, sun storms send out psychomagnetism and glittering stardust. In the end everything winds up in the fifth season, the Dead Season.

26. + 27.Feb / 1. + 2.March

International Women’s Day 2015

Female:Pressure is an international network of over 1200 female artists in the fields of electronic music.

Our new blog was inspired by Bjork’s Pitchfork article in January 2015 where she notes

the lack of photographic documentation of women at work in the studio.

Here we offer a visual catalogue of female producers, DJ’s, media artists and electronic music Performers at work.

These are not our press photos.

This is a collective effort to demonstrate women and their use of technology in music and media production.

Pussy Riot Freedom Compilation

female:pressure supports Pussy Riot with a compilation –

my track exclusivly for this: Mach Mich Gut

Pussy Riot Freedom

Across a variety of countries, these electronic music producers of female:pressure offer

their music in solidarity with Pussy Riot calling for freedom for imprisoned Pussy Riot

members Nadezhda Tolokonnikova and Maria Alyokhina.

We have heard that they may be set free, and hope that this effort increases exposure for

their cause and celebrates their liberation.

All money raised from this compilation will be donated directly to The Voice Project who is

managing the International Support Fund for Pussy Riot (voiceproject.org/pussyriot/)

Going up the Country 7inch


Side A explodes open with GG’s very own cover version of Canned Heat’s classic

Goin’ Up The Country. Gut has taken the Blues-rock hit and given it her very own punk twist.

Turn the record over for an equally astonishing B side in the form of the Brandt Brauer Frick

Ensemble remix of the track Tiger taken from the Wildlife album.

Having herself guested on the tune “Fantasie Mädchen” on BBFs new album “Miami” it

seems natural that they repay the favor by providing Gudrun with this excellent mix for the

new single, and what a job they’ve done.
For listeners who prefer a digital format, there’s a special treat in the download with a

bonus remake of the title track by long time collaborator Thomas Fehlmann, who takes the

track into the land of slow funk (vinyl excl. available on Pudel Produkte).

Heimatlieder aus Deutschland – new Remix

Please check my new Mix for the fantastic Heimatlieder aus Deutschland.

A wonderful project bringing back the original music from all over the world …

This „new German ethnic music“, will be released under „Heimatabend Vol.1“ soon.

There are other great Remixes by Natalie Beridze, Mark Ernestus, Murat Tepeli,

Eric D. Clark, Thomas Mahmoud, Can Oral (Khan), Guido Möbius, Symbiz Sound,

Yvonne Cornelius (Niobe), Ulrich Schnauss, Margaret Dygas and Matias Aguayo.

Sehr Gut Radio

here my trackllist for the Martin Kippenberger Ausstellung “sehr gut” at Hamburger Bahnhof Berlin.
Main focus is the music in the air – Berlin 1979-1982, around the SO36 club and Kippenberger himselve.

Die Atmosphäre einer Zeit, in der Musik die Ausdrucksform der Szene war: schnell, kompromisslos und in die Fresse.
Musik war einfach da, immer und überall und prägte dadurch eine ganze Künstlergeneration.

Following on from recent public debate on sexism in the German media –

female:pressure is calling for a collective revision of female representation in electronic

music and digital arts. We would therefore like to contribute with a look at our current
