Atmospheric music for the senses – a world full of sound

The project name of the sound collective is not connected to the debut album of Sven Väth, because Jena in Thuringia has its own ‘paradise’, a huge park in the middle of the city called Paradies. Right here in 2008, No Accident In Paradise played for the first time in form of an ambient live session, coupled with moving images. A stroke of luck, yet still it’s more than just an ‘accident in paradise’.

The culture of relaxation is in modern excursion behavior an almost forgotten refuge. The formerly loved intoxicating chill-out floors, the soul salvations of every house and techno party are lost in the 90’s. Although still, ‘brain dance’ is as well as pure bodily enthusiasm a human dynamic that let us experience music in a sensual way. After the rave party is over, one is searching for a special place of sonic relaxation. That in a nutshell is what No Accident In Paradise does. They build acoustic rooms that make one belief these can be touched.
The extraordinary about No Accident In Paradise is their live arranged and improvised balance between electronic and acoustic sounds, coupled with tone fragments and sound snippets that have a direct relation to the performance venues.

No Accident in Paradise are Stachy [micro:form], Albrecht Ziepert (Pentatones) and Inannia. For very special occasions the visual artist Robert Seidel and his ‘living paintings’ accompany them.
2014 appears their first album „Asymetria“ complemented by a rework from Birds Two Cage (Daniel Stefanik & Juno6), released on Freude am Tanzen. Listening to No Accident In Paradise means either a holiday from life, or life long holiday.

No Accident In Paradise are:

Faust – Music for Theatre

This album is a compilation of the musical score for the well-known tragedy “Faust” by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. It was composed by Albrecht Ziepert for the theatre production “Faust! Der Tragödie erster und zweiter Teil” directed by Mark Zurmühle (Deutsches Theater in Göttingen) at Lokhalle Göttingen in 2013. It is the result of intense collaboration between Zurmühle and his cast, Ziepert, and the other musicians he involved. The album also acts as a best-of, which documents the ever changing nature of the production during the making and staging of it while the score was performed live each night. The music is inspired by various contemporary genres – especially electronic music.

In 2015 »Faust – Music for Theatre« has been recomposed for a concert with philharmonic orchestra Jenaer Philharmonie, conducted by Marc Tardue at »Novalisfest« in Jena.

preENTER

preENTER is an audiovisual performance based on live sampling. Playing their instruments live, this ensemble consists of four musicians and two visual artists. Specially developed video and audio-controller create a symbiosis with live-instruments such as double bass, rhodes, syntheziser und sampler. People from the audience can participate in the show by using flat bed scanners that are feeding images to a projector. By scanning themselves the audience becomes part of the visual performance, wich interacts with the music vice versa. The concept of direct interaction between audience, visuals and live music creates an open end-dialogue, symbolizing that there is “No life without interaction”.
