    ASTVALDUR [oqko]
    Ástvaldur Axel Þórisson is an Icelandic artist and musician. Starting at a young age with his musical endeavour, the ascertainment to electronic music was an incision which shaped his approach, leading to the current project; astvaldur. Exploring a fine composite of sound design, complex patterns and club-influenced schemes, his work is a personal reevaluation of the boundaries within these.

    MARCO ACCARDI, GESO
    Moir.Al

    We tend to think that our lives are driven by some kind of fate, and indeed they are, but not exactly what we have thought. There are a nature high-end design and a master plan, something we vaguely can see or understand, elaborated by a higher form of intelligence. We can’t say for sure if it’s the summum of a technologically advanced civilization, or an ancient and ethereal entity, like a God/ess. It gave us the concepts of time and space, and along with that the arts related to them, such as music and visual art. Through them, we pay tribute and decipher its mystery.

His works are usually a combination of glitches, light diffraction, geometric graphics, urban explorations and images inspired by landscapes and nature, a visual journey through images synthesized from reality in order to re-connect the viewer with a kind of collective memory.
     
    Among a long list of visual performances, his work has been shown at galleries, festivals and exhibitions such as Piano Day (Waterford, 2018), Berlin Atonal (Berlin, 2014), Spektrum (Berlin, 2017), Adobe Creative Cloud Launch Event (Los Angeles, 2014), File Hipersonica (São Paulo 2013), Miscellanea Gallery (Barcelona, 2017), Krake Festival (Berlin, 2017, 2016, 2014 & 2013), Potenciadores de la Emoción (Granada, 2016), Berlin Art Week: Modernity (Berlin, 2016), In-sonora VIII edition (Madrid, 2016), Maschinenfest 2K15 (Oberhausen, 2015), Glitch – VJ Art at Bau Bau (Leipzig, 2015), Platoon Kunsthalle 2nd Anniversary (Berlin, 2014), Applied Sound Arts (Leipzig, 2013), We Love 8Bit Art Show (Berlin, 2013) and CutOut Fest (Queretaro 2012).

    ASERET
    … is a Sardinian project based in Berlin dedicated to Ambient-Drone Music as Composer and Live Performer. Aseret studied in Italy, where he made two Sound Installation and various Live electronics in the Conservatory of Sassari, Cagliari, Latina and Bolzano. The purpose of his works is to bring back to foreground the human value of each person, giving him, through the music, a chance to identify himself and reconsider his own spaces, in contrast with a world increasingly hectic.
     
    //
     
    OR SARFATI
    … with a background of a developer, uses the world of visual art to create environments that are generated and evolved at the present moment. Using a particle system, these environments reacts to a changeable set of rules and can be designed or manipulated during a live performance. Each act is a mix of composition and improvisation giving a different result while keeping an organic sensation.
     
    //
     
    KRIS VANGO
    …explaining his approach to music as “an emotional purge and an exploration into the realms of the universal soul”, producer/visual artist Kris Vango brings together dark fragmented sounds from the techno underground with an ambient space of hope and utopia. Born and raised in Australia, the roots of Vango’s music echo the countries expansive and dramatic landscapes, mirrored against the dark hedonistic shadow-side of the underground club scene of Berlin, where he has been living for the past 4 years. It is Vango’s belief that our sense of existence is interpreted through systems created by our varying global cultures, religions and stories of the universe, he believes the keys to unlocking our human potential are in the overlapping patterns of ancient theories and systems – and reinterpreting them into our modern intellectual observations of the physical world of science and quantum physics. It is this relationship between the physical and non physical aspects of our conscious life on earth that he finds most interesting. His soundscapes reflect and explore these patterns, symbols and systems through the universal language of emotions; art and frequencies. It is the research of these explorations that are expressed through music, inviting the listener to discover aspects of themselves by using sound and music frequencies to interpret the stories of ancient systems, ideologies and systems.

    Risk Element: Selected Films by Vivienne Dick and Artist Talk
     
    With an introduction by Itty Minchesta
     
    //
     
    ABOUT
      
    RISK ELEMENT: VIVIENNE DICK
    Selected Films 1979 – 2017 and artist talk
    Vivienne Dick describes her filmmaking as ‘quite loose’ in her method – she is always leaving the door open for chance, ‘allowing things to happen’ and embracing an ‘risk element’ or even ‘vulnerability’. She achieves this by not working with a script, nevertheless rigorously plans the process and has clear ideas that she wants to explore while leaving enough space and time to ensure that something unexpected can enter. She also often works collectively, approaching the film in a collaborative way and invites those she is working with to participate. As she is interested in the different ways people present themselves to the camera and how this can shift within the shot (a vulnerability exposed or an internal focus, a performing of what someone wants to project) many of her films are also portraits of people and everyday life and their relationships to their environment and are almost documentary. At the same time s she uses highly artificial lightning, strong colour, costumes and a fixed camera. There are sudden jumps to different situations, different places, different times.
     
    “I feel like we have to do a whole lot of these films, because this is, I want this to be my show. I want… I want everything I say to keep. Like my whole life now is trying to just talk, I just want to talk and get up on a stage and just talk and that’s my show. I want to take photographs too. I want people to take all these chances…”
     
    (Beate Nilsen in Guerrillère Talks)
     
    //
     
    Guerillère Talks, USA, 1978, 25 Min., OV, DVD, Regie: Vivienne Dick, mit:  Adele Bertei, Nina Canal, Lydia Lunch, Ikue Mori, Beate Nilsen, Anya Phillips, Pat Place
     
    3 ½ minutes of real time for each (No-Wave) protagonist, each woman, each performance, each self-presentation, each interaction with the camera and her being rather ‘partner in crime’ than voyeuristic.
     
    “Dick’s first film consists of eight unedited rolls of super-8 sound footage (…) by juxtaposing various examples of female self-definition against the backdrop of a decaying social order, the film is also the rehearsal and paradigm for Dick’s subsequent work.” –Jim Hoberman, October issue 20, Spring 1982
     
    Like Dawn to Dust, USA 1983, 7 Min., OV, DVD, Regie: Vivienne Dick, mit Lydia Lunch
    Lydia Lunch in an Irish bog, lamentating the difficulties of human interactions.
     
    The Irreducible Difference of the Other, 2013, 27 Min., HDV,  D: V. Dick, with Olwen Fouéré
    ‘A mouthful of a title’ as V.Dick calls it in her own words, this film examines a world orientated towards war, terror, and consumption with Franco-Irish actress Olwen Fouéré inhabiting the two personas of Antonin Artaud and Russian poet Anna Akhmatova. In referencing key historical moments, such as mass marches against  the Iraq war, the Arab Spring and recent anti- austerity protests, the film proclaims the desire a more balanced world, which might  lead to a renewal of relationship on both a personal and global level.
     
    Red Moon Rising, 15 mins,  2015, 15 Min., HDV,  D: V. Dick
    Female performers engage in movement and voice improvisations that move beyond conventional rules of communication, and question the validity of language as an adequate carrier of experience. Nature appears sublime, and delicate black and white imagery rhythmically punctuates wildly-lit coloured settings (immablog.org).
     
    A celebration of the carnivalesque, through dance, performance and the spoken word. A red moon is both a beacon, and a warning!!

    VIVIENNE DICK
    … was born in Donegal in 1950 and studied at University College, Dublin. Between 1977 – 1982 she lived in New York, part of a group of filmmakers whose affiliation to the music and aesthetic of punk became known as ‘New Wave’. Working mainly on Super 8, Dick’s films from this period feature many musicians from the punk movement in NY with performances and music from Lydia Lunch, James Chance, Pat Place, Adele Bertei, and Ikue Mori. Dick returned to Ireland in 1982 and then to London in 1985, where she was a member of The London Filmmakers Coop for many years and produced a number of films in 16mm, and in video. Her films have been screened at cinemas, museums and film festivals internationally, including Tate Britain, Moma and the Whitney in New York, IMMA in Dublin, and the Edinburgh and Berlin Film Festivals. She lives in Dublin, Ireland, and continues to make films. Her films are distributed via lux.org.

    The series SOUNDING IMAGES focuses on different approaches to documenting and visualizing musical performances, scenes and movements as well as close collaborations between filmmakers and composers, including soundtracks. The aim of it is to open up a wide range of perspectives on the interrelation of music, experimental filmmaking, and video art, including issues regarding race, class, sexuality and gender. Invited guests will discuss selected works and a short introduction to each screening will provide background information, sometimes a Q&A will follow. Sounding Images is organized by Fiona McGovern.

    DANIEL BLUMBERG

    Sun 24.06 20:00 // CONCERT // ACUD CLUB
    DANIEL BLUMBERG

    Acud Macht Neu presents: The visual artist from London is presenting songs from his new album “minus” which marries raw songwriting with free-music ethos.
     
    //
     
    LINE-UP
     
    DANIEL BLUMBERG [Mute Records, UK]
    Over the past decade Daniel Blumberg has released an extensive catalogue of music under different names (Yuck, Hebronix), while forging ongoing collaborations with musicians, writers and filmmakers such as Neil Hagerty, David Toop, Low, Silver Jews, Lambchop, Jad Fair and Brady Corbet. He is a prolific visual artist, described by Hans Ulrich Obrist as “one of London’s most exciting emerging new artists”. Most recently Blumberg has been playing and recording at London’s Cafe Oto, working intensively with a core group of improvisers consisting of violinist Billy Steiger, saxophonist Seymour Wright, double bassist Tom Wheatley and cellist Ute Kanngiesser.
     
    These regular sessions have culminated in the release of his debut eponymous record Minus on Mute Records (May 2018). Minus is a powerful and highly personal work, one that weds a free-music ethos to the rawest emotional songwriting. Live the material is radically reimagined from show to show, with a rotating cast of players pushing Blumberg’s fragile songforms to their limits.

    ACUD BACKYARD SUMMER: SKY WALKING LABORATORY

    Wed 27.06 20:00 // CONCERT // ACUD BACKYARD
    ACUD BACKYARD SUMMER: SKY WALKING LABORATORY

    For the first edition of SKY WALKING LABORATORY at ACUD MACHT NEU we are overjoyed to present an incredible evening of concerts:
     
    After their amazing Tony Conrad tribute show at Kampnagel Hamburg earlier this year, PNIN aka Nika Son, Phillip Sollmann and Joachim Schütz, will play an intro drone concert featuring the hurdy gurdy, a guitar and synths to be followed by the exceptional NIKA SON (Next Time, Golden Pudel Club). KONRAD SPRENGER, who just released his album “Stack Music” on PAN, will present his midified robotic guitar on a six-channel loudspeaker system. MO CHAN aka Aiko Okamoto will accompany the shows with a selection of Japanese Extravaganza and Queer Electronics.
     
    Be invited to a wonderful evening of spontaneous music, exciting sound and fantastic artists!

    Anlässlich der ersten Veranstaltung der neuen SKY WALKING LABORATORY Reihe im Berliner ACUD CLUB erzeugt KONRAD SPRENGER mit seiner robotisch gesteuerten E-Gitarre kaleidoskopische Klangteppiche auf einem 6 Punkt Amplifier System. Nach ihrem Debut anlässlich eines Tony Conrad Tributs in Hamburgs Kampnagel Fabrik, spielt die Formation PNIN aka Nika Son (Synthesizer), Phillip Sollmann (Hurdy Gurdy) und Joachim Schütz (Amplified Guitar) ein Drone Konzert, das nahtlos in das Set von NIKA SON überleitet, die ihre skulpturalen Tape-, Synth- und Sprachmodulationen präsentiert. Die aus Kyoto stammende AIKO AKAMOTO aka DJ MO CHAN begleitet die Konzerte mit einem Mix aus queeren Sounds und japanischer Extravaganza.

    ABOUT
     
    KONRAD SPRENGER [Pan]
    Jörg Hiller alias Konrad Sprenger ist neben seiner Zusammenarbeit mit Ellen Fullman, Arnold Dreyblatt, Oren Ambarchi und Jim O’Rourke wohl am bekanntesten für seine midifizierte sich selbst spielende Gitarre, aus der er ungehörte Klangteppiche und Rythmen live kreiert und durch den Raum – konzipiert für ein 6- Punkt Lautsprechersystem. Neben Veröffentlichungen auf seinem eigenen Label Choose ist im letzten Jahr auf PAN sein Album Stack Music entstanden. Konrad Sprenger tourte zuletzt mit Jim O’Rourke und Arnold Dreyblatt in Japan, und solo in Italien, wo er eng mit den Produzenten des Labels für Neue Musil Die Schachtel zusammenarbeitete. Die Kollaboration mit Sky Walking begann mit einem Beitrag für die erste Label Compilation 41’39 und der Installation eines modularen Orgel Prototyps zusammen mit Phillip Sollmann, ausgestellt in der Kestnergesellschaft Hannover und Mathew Gallery Berlin.

    NIKA SON [Golden Pudel Club]
    Als Veranstalterin der Reihe Next Time und innovative Musikerin, widmet sie sich Nika Son der Suche nach aussergewöhlichen Klängen und Entdeckungen neuer und alter Technologien. In ihren Live Shows kommunizieren analoge Synthesizer mit manipulierten Bandmaschinen, filmische Klänge werden in eine ganz aussergewöhnliche Klangsprache übertragen, als betrachte man das Gehörte. Nika Breithaupt war unter anderem zu Gast bei Blurred Edges Hamburg, dem Meakusma Festival, Klub Katarakt (Kampnagel, Hamburg), dem internationalen Festival für experimentelle Musik Kampnagel Hambur. Sie kollaborierte unter anderem mit dem Ensemble Resonanz und dem Elektronik Musiker FX.

    AIKO OKAMOTO AKA DJ MO CHAN [Female Pressure]
    … ist aktiv im Umfeld des Musikerinnen Netzwerks Female Pressure, Betreiberin des Projektraums TOKONOMA., Videokünstlerin und Musikerin. Zuletzt war Okamoto in Kassel für die künstlerische Leitung des Projekt Raums Narrowcast House und das damit verbundene Kulturradio anlässlich der Documenta 14 mitverantwortlich. Okamoto alias Mo-Chan verbindet als Dj einen Mix aus neuen, provokativen Produktionen mit der in Berlin bisher kaum aufzufindenden Subkultur des J-Pop, japanischer Extravaganza und Experimentalmusik. Sie ist zudem häufig als Gast und Initiatorin bei Podiumsgesprächen zum Thema Experimentelle Musik und Feminismus anzufinden.

    SKY WALKING LABORATORY
    … ist eine Verantsaltungsreihe fur zeitgenössische Musik, die sich grenzüberschreitenden Formen von Improvisation, experimentellem Songwriting, selbsterfundenen Instrumenten, «dekonstruktuiertem» Jazz und queerer Elektronik widmet. Die Akteure haben die Möglichkeit, ganz frei und in Echtzeit zu agieren, während dem Publikum die Erfahrung des spontanen, direkten und provokanten Klangereignisses geboten wird.
     
    Im Umfeld des legendären Hamburger Golden Pudel Club als Band Projekt entstanden, entwickelte sich SKY WALKING zu einem Label internationaler Artists und nun zu einer Veranstaltungsreihe, präsentiert von Christian Naujoks und Peter Kersten, die am 27. Juni mit NIKA SON, KONRAD SPRENGER und AIKO OKAMOTO AKA DJ KOHLRABI im Berliner ACUD MACHT NEU ihren Auftakt nimmt und mit Künstler*Innen wie EVE ESSEX, FIONA MC GOVERN, PNIN und der SKY WALKING BAND fortgesetzt wird.
