THE LABEL

Seit 2001 agiert Ink Music als wesentlicher Player in der österreichischen Musiklandschaft im Bereich der Künstlerbetreuung und -entwicklung im engeren, der Karriereplanung und -begleitung im weiteren Sinn. Zu den wesentlichen Arbeitsbereichen zählen das Buchen und Veranstalten von Konzerten (Booking), das Veröffentlichen und Verlegen von Tonträgern (als Label und Verlag) und die Vermittlung von daraus entstehenden Rechten (Sync-Rights, Lizenzen), Öffentlichkeitsarbeit, Coaching und umfassendes Künstlermanagement. Begleitet und mitgestaltetet wurden und werden auf diese Art und Weise Karrieren von Künstlern wie Bilderbuch, Wanda, Garish, Clara Luzia, Leyya, Farewell Dear Ghost, Ezra Furman, Sohn, Blondage oder Ja, Panik.

Ink Music entwickelt und gestaltet Festival- und Veranstaltungsformate wie etwa das C’est la Mü Festival für Musik, Literatur und Kleinkunst in der Osliper Cselley Mühle, das Music Film Festival Poolinale (2011-2016, seither als Poolinale Nights weiter geführt), das Nordic Music Festival JaJaJa oder das Sturm und Klang Festival in Mödling.

Das Team von Ink Music engagiert sich darüber hinaus seit jeher in den Bereichen der branchenübergreifenden Vernetzung und Fortbildung, ist Initiator und Partner des Zertifikatslehrgangs Musikwirtschaft an der FH Kufstein Tirol und war maßgeblich an der Entstehung und Konzeption des Austrian Music Export beteiligt.

Das in Summe dieser Tätigkeiten gewonnene Know-How fließt auch in Beratungs- und Konzeptionstätigkeiten für Marken und Unternehmen, Kommunen und Organisationen im Spannungsfeld von Musik und Kreativwirtschaft ein.

Wir sind begeisterte Musikliebhaber, die dem Antrieb folgen, dieses Gefühl in die Welt tragen und mit Gleichgesinnten allerorten teilen zu dürfen. Dazu suchen und finden wir KünstlerInnen, deren Talent und Potential in uns diesen Wunsch auslöst. Im Zentrum unseres Handelns steht stets das Vorankommen dieses/r KünstlerIn und das Entdecken und Erschließen seines/ihres Potentials. Dabei ist uns Nachhaltigkeit und Kontinuität wichtiger als der schnelle Euro. Deshalb mischen wir unseren Enthusiasmus und unser Know-How mit Geduld, Demut und Gelassenheit.
Wir sind Freunde einer offenen und fortschrittsorientierten Gesellschaft. Gesammelte Erfahrungen und erlangtes Wissen können sich wie in der Kultur nur im beständigen Austausch, durch Neugier und im positiven Miteinander als wertig erweisen und weiter entwickeln. Wir leben das Prinzip der Fairness auch und gerade unter Geschäftspartnern. In dieser Tradition werden wir stets jenen Weg anstreben, der uns als der bestmögliche für beide Seiten scheint.

THE ARTISTS / RECORDS

PRESSYES

Interview with Pressyes :

 

Chapter 1: A HOLE IN THE OCEAN

After the breakup of René Mühlberger’s main band VELOJET he found himself in a free fall. The outside world slowly but surely started growing up – and while one can´t run from that – one can of course create a world for oneself: inside one’s mind – or, even one’s apartment.

He spent this time of transition and contemplation building his own home studio full of analogue equipment and recording sounds that fell out of vintage guitars and drum sets, testing and using everything that produces sound, just like a child. No goals, no limits, but with one mindset: to stay positive and do what feels right.

About three years later, the essence of his new project came to life under the name of PRESSYES. He played the drums, bass, synths, and guitars, all pre-1978 instruments, himself, and carefully recorded everything with tape recorders. The result is a selection of songs that sound both fantastic and easy-going.

The Debutalbum On the run will be released on inkmusic on May 11th 2018.

Chapter 2: DREAMING OF LIVING THE DREAM

What drives René Mühlberger a.k.a. PRESSYES is the urge to push his own creativity, effectively resisting to fall into patterns, trying to consciously loosen the knots in his safety net – go out, experience the world, and actually live the dreams billboards try to sell us. On the Run is an ode to exactly that: living the dream.

Chapter 3: MEDITATION & INSPIRATION

PRESSYES found out pretty early that you can´t just sit at home in your studio and wait for the magic to happen. Sometimes you need to step outside and see the world and let the things you see turn into sounds. That’s why he went to Vietnam, Thailand, India, Morocco, and Sri Lanka to get a glimpse of a different world. The need to process countless memories and experiences – the bits and pieces of information collected from different cultures and places – led him to take time away from the world, condensing these memories and carefully crafting his sounds back home.

Chapter 4: TEN COLORFUL TRACKS OF A MUSICAL JOURNEY

The album On the run is a kaleidoscope of images and emotions: somewhere between California Dreaming and a summer road trip in a vintage car, memories emerge from a faded Polaroid.

Every single track on the album exudes a lust for life and the future, contrasting the evident nostalgia. The sublime soundscape of mellow and driven sounds is reminiscent of the big pop days of the ‘70s, scattered with lush textures and psychedelia.

Let PRESSYES take you on a journey with the reassuring Hideaway inducing the urge to go out and show yourself to the world. Dance like nobody’s watching to Touch the Sky and the driven On the Run. Close your eyes and sway to tracks like the laidback Summertime and Fountains.

Let California take you on a nostalgic trip to the dream of crushing waves, long hair, and surfing all day long. Lean back and reach for the stars while listening to the hazy Carry Me Away and the upbeat Children of the Sun. This trip ends with the mellow Well Come Back and the realization that returning home can actually be a good thing.

Chapter 5: IT´S NOT ONLY ABOUT THE MUSIC

For PRESSYES, the creative process involves more than just recording music. He loves experimenting with visual elements for liveshows or musicvideos ­– On the Run and Hideaway were produced by himself and edited by Marlene Lacherstorfer. The restoration work on his ‘66 VW tour bus adds to the bigger picture and illustrates his fond love for this era.

Chapter 6: LIFE´S A JOURNEY

After years in the making, PRESSYES is finally ready. With a live band comprising former Velojet bass player Marlene Lacherstorfer and drummer Alex Kerbl, the dreamy soundscapes will hit the road in 2018.

CARI CARI

Interview with CARI CARI :

 

Stompin’ like a Locomotive, fragile as a flower: Cari Cari are Stephanie Louise Widmer and Alexander Köck. They first met backstage. Just weeks later Stephanie left for Australia. She returned one year later armed with both a Didgeridoo and a Jaw-Harp. The duo then spent the summer in an old house by the lakeside, writing and recording their debut „AMERIPPINDUNKLER“ in the basement.

In 2014 Cari Cari released their debut to worldwide critical acclaim. Their first single “White Line Fever” was featured on blogs worldwide and featured in US TV series, including the award-winning “Shameless” and a tour that led the duo as far as to the Australian East Coast. They returned in February 2017 with “Nothing’s Older Than Yesterday”, which is a product of three years full of searching for the exciting, the unseen and the unheard. Living in London, Hamburg and Melbourne since the release of their critically acclaimed debut EP ‘Amerippindunkler’ the two-piece stole little bits and pieces from each city: East London’s boldness, Melbourne’s DIY-attitude and the fascinating weirdness of Tokyo. Cari Cari distilled all these features into their trademark sound – articulating it for the first time on their newest cut “Nothing’s Older Than Yesterday”.

In 2017 and 2018 Cari Cari has performed at a wide range of festivals, taking their audience’s hearts by storm at The Great Escape, Eurosonic Noorderslag, Primavera Sound, Metronome Prague, Linecheck Milano and many other occasions. After an exceptional performance at Waves Vienna Festival they received the coveted XA Music Export Award, convincing an international jury of their special live skills. The duo is currently working on their debut album set to be released in late 2018.

GARISH

Für das mittlerweile siebte Studioalbum haben GARISH in vielerlei Hinsicht ihre Komfortzone verlassen. Gerade nach den Erfolgen der letzten Platten „Wenn dir das meine Liebe nicht beweist“ (2010) und „Trumpf“ (2014) war es ein Anliegen, die Zeit nicht stillstehen zu lassen, sondern das Glück und sich selbst noch einmal herauszufordern.

Die Veränderung dabei positiv zu besetzen und die sich daraus ergebenden Möglichkeiten aktiv und selbst in die Hand zu nehmen und zu gestalten, ist auf diese Art und Weise ein Leitthema für die Gruppe geworden, das zutiefst persönlich und allgemeingültig interpretiert werden kann.

So klingt Garish 2017 aus mehreren Blickwinkeln erstaunlich anders. Der vertrauten Cselley Mühle wurde diesmal ein kleines Studio in Wien vorgezogen; erstmals saß Stefan Deisenberger mit der Band am Produktionshebel. Es wurde reichlich mit neuem Instrumentarium, neuen Einflüssen und Mustern experimentiert. Der Rohheit der letzten Platten stehen diesmal filigrane und vielfältige Strukturen gegenüber. All das, ohne den Boden einer über zwei Jahrzehnte geformten Band-Identität dabei zu verlassen.

Thomas Jarmer wagt sich mehr als früher aus der Reserve; seine oft lyrischen Metaphern sind geradezu zu inneren Parolen für den geplagten, modernen Menschen geworden. Er betrachtet das Große im Kleinen und das Kleine im Großen gleichermaßen und lässt die Hörerinnen ein Album lang die Frage stellen: Was tut dieser seltsame Weltzustand mit seinen absurden Auswirkungen mit mir im Inneren? Man fühlt sich erwischt, erkannt, angesprochen. Der täglich steigenden Ungewissheit, was die Zukunft alles mit sich bringen wird, lässt sich trotz düsterer Prognosen, Vorzeichen und Symbole nur mit Schritten nach vorn begegnen. In diesem Sinne: Komm schwarzer Kater.

YASMO & DIE KLANGKANTINE

“Bis zum letzten Satz ist bei mir alles echt denn in Rap steckt mehr als nur ein Geschlecht.” Yasmin Hafedh macht auch Rapmusik, gerne live mit ihrem DJ Bacchus. Achtung: Yasmo MC ist keine Gangstarapperin, hat kein Auto und auch keine Schusswaffe. Aber Yasmo verbindet gerne klassische Beats mit sinnvollen Reimen. Angefangen hat alles im Einbaumöbel wo sie die regelmäßig stattfindende Freestylesession mitbegründet hat und begonnen hat zu rappen. 2009 hatte sie dann die Freestyles in Texte verpackt und ihren ersten Auftritt als Yasmo und Bacchus (Hauptveranstalter der FSS). Seitdem spielen die beiden so oft wie möglich vor großem oder auch kleinem Publikum und bemühen sich die Crowd zum bouncen zu bringen. Natürlich immer mit einem kleinen Augenzwinkern.

SCHMIEDS PULS

With their third album “Manic Acid Love” Schmieds Puls lead through a grand thematic triptych within the perpetual cycle of human emotions. Spanning eleven tracks the album shows unconditional devotion (Manic), the deep vulnerability this kind of dedication can initiate (Acid), and finally closes the aforementioned circle with the human power to overcome these hurdles trough reconciliation (Love), creating a profound spectacle of feelings.

What Mira Lu Kovacs, Christian Grobauer (dr) and Walter Singer (b) – also known as Schmieds Puls – have created both on stage and on their records over the past few years, is of such great stylistic variety that genre definitions are moot. A vagueness of some kind leaves room for the instrumental virtuosity, compositional originality and the stories told through their music.

With her previous albums “Play Dead” (2013) and “I Care A Little Less About Everything Now” (2015) songwriter Mira Lu Kovacs has established herself as a master of her craft. Between then and now lies not only an Amadeus Austrian Music Award (2016), a spectacular experience outside of her main project with Supergroup 5kHD and prestigious bookings as a well-liked performer, most recently at the opening of the Wiener Festwochen (Vienna Festival) in May.

“Manic Acid Love’s” artwork depicts streams of lava – beautiful and uncontrollable it works as picturesque metaphor. Beneath the beauty of its surface lie endless layers of power. The deeper emotional grief sits, the more forcefully it has to erupt at some point.

With every hardship and disappointment, it loads up more; the gleaming anger and exasperation initially unloads between the lines, to eventually culminate in rants, meriting an “explicit lyrics” label.

Therefore, the third album is also Schmieds Puls’ loudest offering thus far. While the former albums where part of a path of self-discovery, “Manic Acid Love” is more direct, and a deliberate step away from expectations as well as ultimate perfectionism, towards actually fathoming opposites.

“Oh (You Lose Me)” reduces the album to a vast emptiness, only for the volcano to finally erupt in the following key piece “Superior”, unloading a sincere “Fuck You” accentuated with hearty grunge guitars.

“Part of me wants people to be afraid of me”, says Mira Lu Kovacs about acquiring a new, emancipated self-conception of her creative work. “Manic Acid Love” demands a dialogue, confident, with a certain kind of harshness and partly aggressive. It is ‘in your face’, drawing clear boundaries between the bearable and intolerable, in the end fulfilling the songwriter’s wish, and forcefully underlining the manic part of the album’s title.

In a way lava seeks its way through nature just as different phases of human relationships illuminate different facets of life, love and its fragility. “Manic Acid Love” is a process, a script for a therapeutic volcanic eruption.

Finally, the listener is let in on the next steps (“Where I Go Next”), and that the ability of self-acceptance is crucial for any new beginning. Lava – once cold – counts not without reason as a special kind of fertile ground to start an entirely new circle.

CATASTROPHE & CURE

Catastrophe & Cure know how to command your attention without being pushy or loud as intensive but gentle vocals combine with elaborate musical arrangements.
In 2012 they released their critically acclaimed debut album « Like Crazy Doves ». Within a year they were touring Austria and Germany, winning Austria’s most recognized music prize, the FM4 Amadeus Award, along the way.
With their second studio album “Undeniable/Irresistible” the young sextet was coming of age, opening Indierock to electronic influences.
Their new 10 inch record „Blank Spots“ continues this tradition. Entirely self produced, the band’s uncompromised approach resulted in a unique style. Minimalistic arrangements meet dreamy layers of slightly detuned synthesizers, floating between harmony and melancholy. Stay tuned!

FAREWELL DEAR GHOST

They subsequently released an EP, „Skin“, in 2016, containing yet another song hitting that No.1 spot: « we were wild once » Both tracks hit the airwaves across Europe; while especially the latter became hugely popular on Spotify, where the track holds 2 Million plays to date and keeps rising in popularity. Many of their songs have been used in films and commercials, most notably « fade out »in a big Austrian telecom campaign in 2016 an « fire » (i.e. for DPD).
