Our Guest Dom Del Icious from Dregs, a Women to the front Hardcore Punk Band from Vienna’s free DIY undergound scene.Dom talks about the fast creating process of Dregs music, reflecting on their lyrics, the side project Morbid and the struggle of releasing.
We met Holger van Dordrecht at his new store Sissy Sound Records and listen to Austrian musican Lenson Piquet’s „Feel My Soul / Breathe Light“.
And also inlcuded is a portrait of the female experimental film / animation artist DJ and musician Brigitta Bödenauer. She shows us her transformation from noise to infrasound installations.
Dregs Hardcore Punk in its essence. By outcasts for outcasts. Fast riffs, angry mosh parts and messages aimed to empower the ones that should run the scene. Women to the front, queers to the front. Up the punks. Reflect on yourself. Dregs are: Julie Hill (Vocals), Dom Del Icious (Guitar), Moritz on bass and Ray (Drums) from Vienna (At).

I have a vist at Sissy Sound Records, a store that just opened in fall 2019. Its is operated by owner Holger van Dordrecht. Since
2011 van Doderecht already hosts the event „Nil Desperandum“, he is editor of Volksstimme, DJ Sissyboi with edutainer Drehli Robnik and operate Nervenerve.

Brigitta Bödenauer is an installation artist, experimental filmmaker and electronic musician based in Vienna. Brigitta has been active as DJ and organizer in Viennas noise and experimentel music scene since the early 1990s. She was a resident DJ at event series like „Club Duchamp“ (Blue Box), „escape lounge“ (t0 public netbase) or the co-organised series „Sundays out of service“ (rhiz).
I ask her about the various stages in her artistic development and a description of some important works.She talks about how the musicians' role on stage has changed in the 1990s and why she believes that it consequently started a local trend which has been subsumed under the term „Austrian Abstracts“.
Together with Rita Stratjel and Peter Votava aka Pure (Mego/Vienna) she curated and organized „Cinemasonic Lounge“, one of Vienna’s first audiovisual clubs (Schikaneder Kino 1999). With the „Innovative Cinema Award“-winning film „Don´t touch me when I start to fell safe“ (Diagonale Filmfestival 2004) she started working with experimental animation.
In collaboration with Peter Kutin she presented her first light & sound installation „How far is 12 cm?“ in 2011. „Stranded“ is once again a work of hers that is rooted in the tradition of visual music and expanded cinema: vibrations caused by low frequency sounds generate glowing oscillating figures in space. Most recently „Stranded“ was shown in a solo exhibition at Vita Kuben Gallery/Norrlandsopera in Umeå, Sweden. Currently Bödenauer works on „We wont close our umbrellas“, a light and sound piece which is conceived as a live performance or a spatial installation. It premiered in 2018 at WRO Art Center in Wroclaw, Poland and is being continuously expanded and revised since then.
