It is a Friday evening in the beginning of August. We are more than just happy that the storm, which was announced to come today, was already here yesterday. While the instruments and equipment for today’s the live music are not all yet set up, we already have a lot of fun while having a glass of Suikyo Mizucha.

What is the green stuff in the carafe?

The best drug for the morning, the best drug for the night: Green leaves from an organic garden, infused with cold water. Some of us mix it with some drops (or some more drop) of white port wine, while most of us enjoy it pure today. The most special thing about the green leaves we drink today, namely the Suikyo Mizucha, is that the people who grow the leaves, only use grasses for fertilizing their garden. Nothing else.

How it came that Mimikoto is here today?

Olli and Geli from Tee Kontor Kiel were already in Frankfurt many times for Marimo events. Sometimes, for bigger events, Mimikoto perfomed their live music act with a fusion of Jazz and electronic music. This is how Olli and Geli already came in contact with their music. Finally Olli and Geli saw the video of the Mimikoto live performance at neo.T. in Paris, and had the idea to invite Mimikoto to the White Night in Kiel. Now, finally, all of us are here, enjoying the evening together.

Mimikoto in between Jazz and Electronic Music

First of all we have to comment that Mimikoto is not only happy to be here today, because their style of music is so much welcomed here. It is also that the Mimikoto people by themselves are deeply green leave lovers, so that a brilliant time together is guaranteed.

While there are many ways to create a fusion of Jazz and electronic music, Mimikoto today combines the slightly rough sound of a tenor saxophone with electronic beats and basses. The pure sound of the tenor saxophone is to be heard for the close listeners directly, but through the speakers it comes sometimes with a quite strong modification. This makes it come nearer to the electronic rhythms. At the same time, the beats are electronic in their origine, coming from a well reputated Berlin’s analog drum-machine maker’s stuff. But, various modifications lets their sound come closer to the a pure and natural sound. Sometimes the rythms sounds like percussions of a native tribe, bringing us in a quite nice state of trance.
