. ...... DAS FREIE ORCHESTER
...... DFO ...... Berlin, Germany
... now finally on Soundcloud - the BEST of DFO - free improvising band from East Berlin, 1986 to 1992. I had the PLEASURE to be part of the experience from 90-92. I joined the band the day the wall fell in Berlin november 9th 1989. I came from the West. In 1992 when the dream of a *better* united Germany had died, we split .. all was said and done.
This collection is re_freshed and compiled by original DFO member, Didier Leboz.
7 songs, kinda fragile, a touch of obscure, an almost lost production, lotsa ukulele and a bunch of unusual percussion ... info / order / etc
This album represents one of the most creative, inventive forms of musical expression I've heard for a while, and I highly recommend it...Bliss Aquamarine

"... All in all Lord Litter is a weird genius of our time passing throu different layers of counter-culture and crossing the borders of time and space to deliver us a creative and innovative music that stands on its own. A must for the lovers of original music."
Looking back / listening to what I've done way back then .. I no longer like that much I find ... but there are exceptions .. like the songs I did for the *Ode To Samantha Fox* compilation, produced by INSANE MUSIC from Belgium in 1990. 447 invitations have been sent to 31 countries - 112 songs have been received from 13 countries, 72 songs have been selected, 56 songs only could take place on the 2 C60 cassettes .. I was lucky I had two songs on the tapes .. here is one .. Lord Litter - I'd like to meet Samantha Fox ... by the way .. does anyone remember Samantha Fox..??

. Chapter 14' the dream of the disembodied birds'
Im a complete film maniac .. here's a short movie where I created the sound - it even won a prize..the sound. I did several short movies with Andrea Splisgar.
Chapter 14 performs a tribute to all imagery and sound in film history that has left signs in one’s memory, inspired one’s own artistic language and fuels one’s own imagination
without inspiration of any kind – as without memory itself - no work of art could have ever been created.
nothing is original, originality is non – existent! stealing only from what directly speaks to our heart and soul, (in this case, acoustic excerpts from over 60 favorite film scenes), our thievery will transform into invaluable authenticity
the performance does not bother to conceal the thievery... the contrary!
it celebrates it, as if it is a daring dance into one’s own personal conquer of unknown territory,... always remembering what Jean-Luc Godard said:
‚It’s not where you take things from – it’s where you take them to!’
Idea and direction Andrea Splisgar
Soundtrack composed by Lord Litter on excerpts from over 60 acoustic film sequences

. Wild Guitar
Wonderful naive/charming trash movie starring the one and only Arch Hall Jr. ... the one with the wildest orginal rock'n'roll hairdo ever .. tells you about the real bad/dirty aspects of the music-biz .. yeh! ..became one of my absolute fave movies .. incl. the reconciliatory end .. very glad you can watch/download this movie (legally) from the groovy archive.org, where you can also get all my radioshows ... yeh!!
. Die Treppe
The Lutz Mommartz Film Archive is a collection of the film works of German film-maker Lutz Mommartz, considered to be one of the pioneers in the film genre known as the "other cinema". Mommartz was born in Erkelenz in 1934 and spent most of his life in Dusseldorf. He began making movies in 1967 and eventually became Professor of Film at the Kunstakademie Munster. He still lives and works in Germany, dividing his time between Dusseldorf and Berlin.
Die Treppe is a brilliant example of very entertaining "other cinema" art from 1967!

Lord Litter hosts radioshows since 1987 and says: Vive La Difference!
The Show presents the new microcosm of free music production, once known as "independent" or "alternative" music, expressions, that - now integrated into the "system" - have no more relation to their original meaning ...
Music/Sound that is uniquely based on more than 70 years of recording history, from classic cassette scene releases of the 1980s to the hypermodern update studiotechnology results. The emphasis is on long working musicians with a unique quality - any sound .. any style. Variety leads to an open mind.
Even though I fully understand the tight budget of creative people, I only present physical releases. Today's mainstream ... the internet including "digital only releases" and so called "free services" like Facebook, where one person earns LOTS because each and everyone taking part means MONEY to the owner .. this needs an alternative.
So - send vinyl, CDs, MCs (with handpainted covers, if you do them) ..these will finds months of airplay at my show(s).
RADIO ON BERLIN
24 hour radio from Berlin
LORD LITTER'S RADIO ON SHOW
Radio On explores the expression of sound. Whatever you can do with sound you'll find here. If you are in for some real experience ... try this station, you might find another section of your mind.
The show I am producing for the station will follow the guidelines I set up for my work in recent years but it will try to explore more .. go deeper .. trying to find interconnections between fields of culture that seemed seperated. I always knew that this seperation was and still is set up by people who own the structure - the structure that only has one aim these days ... consumption.
People outside this structure create worldwide to express themselves - the result may be Folk or Noise - it all comes from the same mind .. this is what I try to present.
