Roedelius+Chaplin (DE/UK)
At Madeira Micro Film Festival’s aftershow we are very proud to present electronica, krautrock pioneer Hans-Joachim Roedelius and Christopher James Chaplin. They will perform their Sub Rosa release “King of Hearts” on our rooftop stage. Berlin-born Roedelius is a German experimental, ambient and electronic musician. He is best known as a co-founder of the krautrock groups Cluster and Harmonia and for his work in the ambient jazz trio Aquarello. Chaplin, born in Switzerland, studied the piano before moving to London to become an actor. In 2005 the youngest son of Charlie Chaplin returned to music and composition. After being asked by Roedelius to record and remix some of his material for a BBC broadcasting they subsequently continued their collaboration and thus King of Hearts was born.


The three-day Madeira Micro Film Festival takes place in a wonderful Art Deco cinema nestled atop a cliff. The cinema, which is almost 100 years old with spectacular views over the Atlantic Ocean is located in the sleepy, seaside village of Ponta Do Sol, on the volcanic island of Madeira. The village and its surroundings evoke culturally rich days gone by, preserved like a ghost town, with a mystical air eerily reminiscent of something out of the work of Lynch or Cronenberg.
