“The SUb, an autonomous, non-profit club-project is based at the bottom of the ‘Schlossberg’ (Castle hill) in Graz. We see ourselves as a collective, which makes all of the decisions in consent at a weekly plenum. Every person in this collective only works unpaid labour. We do not receive any means of conveyance and finance the entire project exclusively from donations.
Our low-threshold and diverse events range from concerts and parties to book-presentations, workshops or discussions. In the nearly 2 decades of events in this location, around one thousand artists from around the world have played on the (non-existent) stage of Sub.
But as you have probably already noticed too, the building has become a little run down after nearly 17 years of being used as a non-profit club-house. In this time the official constraints have also become more restrictive and the controls through officials have increased. Now we have to renovate, to continue this project.
And for this we need your help!
We want Sub to be able to keep up the work of offering diverse artists from around the globe a special stage and enabling people to consume a low-threshold culture programme. Even more, SUb should continue to be an important place where we can hold against the ongoing increase of authoritarianism, short-sightedness and the loss of empathy in the current political climate in Austria. Let’s show together, that a solidarity society is possible!
Get active and save the nicest hut of Graz.”
How strong did we miss you.
Will you be there?
After a final winter stupor, we gaze into the rays of closer photons and see Matti T‘s latest color expressions, in both his visual artwork and also four new tracks he brings to us. New in style is a more dancefloor like track whose musical direction we already could feel in the Teppana release, a group in which Matti T is a member in. The trance like positive vibes guide us into an ambivalent beauty of a strong electronica track. Sunbeams will increase the spirit and the final track will guide you into another realm, moving and somehow rocking. Dance in the easy chair, with a bittersweet taste of love, loss and hope, amidst a space opera.”
“Spirare, latin root of the spanish words for breathe, exhale, inhale, sigh, perspire, expire, spirit.
We are all beings that breathe the same air, invisible and intangible, the breath is what keeps us alive at all times. Our moods varies like the wind, but all they are expressions of our inner self, the language of the air. Spirare is our special final compilation to celebrate the music, the meetings and the end of Breathe as netlabel.”
