    BACKYARD SUMMER X ELISABETH MLADENOV

    RAW IMMATERIAL
    Raw Immaterial is a series of moving paintings projected on canvas and a soundscape created in unison with the visual work. The paintings are born through the natural movements and interactions of various paints and materials. With this work Mladenov aims to step aside from the focal point of the creative process, rearranging the dynamics between painter and paint as well as between process and result. The artist works the material following as if by musical intuition the autonomy of paint in its movements and ever-changing nature, and so strives to share with the viewer the experience of a painting’s becoming. // Website

    ELISABETH MLADENOV
    … is a Berlin-based painter whose recent work aims to dismantle the centrality of the artist in her work. Exhibited in solo shows and group exhibitions across Europe, her new immaterial painting technique lends itself well to be presented in connection to an evening with music, drinks and friends. // Website

    BACKYARD SUMMER X SOUNDING IMAGES: C. SPENCER YEH

    Wed 02.08 19:00 // SCREENING, TALK // CLUB
    BACKYARD SUMMER X SOUNDING IMAGES: C. SPENCER YEH

    For their second backyard event Sounding Images will screen C. Spencer Yeh’s video work 2002 (2015) with an introduction by the artist.
     
    //
     
    2002
    … is a “concert film” that collects together footage of approximately forty bands videotaped by artist C. Spencer Yeh during the year 2002 across the continental USA, including Deerhoof, Animal Collective, Sightings, Sudden Infant, Cock ESP, Double Leopards, Caroliner Rainbow, Comets on Fire, and more. Acting as a survey, tribute, and foreshadowing of the contemporary American musical underground, 2002 captures not only the artists, but the audiences, spaces, and networks that remain incredibly formative and influential over a decade later.
     
    A handful of the segments were originally posted to Yeh’s personal website, before the coming of YouTube and other media-sharing outlets. The average duration of the edits were kept short due to the storage and bandwidth considerations of that time – a strategy carried over in revisiting the footage years later. In a style similar to Yeh’s Hair Police: 01-02, the accustomed musical documentary talking heads, voiceover meditations, and evocative b-roll were eschewed in favor of a more observational “vérité” approach. A loose narrative was already found in the sequencing of these short glimpses during the span of a year – audience members one moment are then found to be the artists on stage in the next. Some venues iconic in their moment are now long gone, while others were revived in recent times, activating a new history.

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.

    „I stepped closer to the wooden shelve that was build from a couple of planks, barely connected by brass screws, slightly leaned against the wall — scanned the back of the books for yellow covers (i have never been disappointed by a yellow book) – looked further, searched for hints of a logical order – „The shelve collapsed, the books fell to the ground last week, there is none!“, he said — took a book from the shelve, something with a pattern, something on graphic design: Opened the first to read, the last to write: the colofon on the last page — opened the first page, kept blank for dedications: handwritten it said: „ To Billy Bob Thornton…“

    ACUD BACKYARD SUMMER X SARAH DAVACHI + JESSICA EKOMANE

    Sarah Davachi graces our courtyard with her subtle, meditative drones.
     
    //
     
    SARAH DAVACHI
    … (b. 1987, Calgary, Canada) holds a bachelor’s degree in philosophy from the University of Calgary, and a master’s degree in electronic music and recording media from Mills College in Oakland, California. As a composer of electronic and electroacoustic music, Davachi’s compositional projects are primarily concerned with disclosing the antiquated instruments and forgotten sonics of a bygone era in analog synthesis, with concurrent treatment of acoustic sources – particularly organ, piano, strings, and woodwinds – often involving de-familiarization through processing. Her work considers the experience of enveloped sonic dwelling, utilizing extended durations, psychoacoustic manipulations, and simple harmonic structures that emphasize variations in overtone complexity and natural phasing patterns.
     
    Her work as a researcher concerns aspects of experimentalism, organology and archival study, and phenomenology and perception, and has been published and presented within North America and Europe. Since 2007, Davachi has also had the unique opportunity to work for the National Music Centre (formerly Cantos Music Foundation) in Calgary as an interpreter and content developer of their collection of acoustic and electronic keyboard instruments. She has held artist residencies at The Banff Centre for the Arts (Banff, Canada), STEIM (Amsterdam, Netherlands), WORM (Rotterdam, Netherlands), EMS (Stockholm, Sweden), OBORO (Montréal, Canada), and MESS (Melbourne, Australia) and is the recipient of grants from the Canada Council for the Arts, the Alberta Foundation for the Arts, and SOCAN. She is currently a doctoral candidate in musicology at the University of California, Los Angeles. // Website

    JESSICA EKOMANE
    …’s practice unfolds around music and sound installations. Her compositions seek a physical and cathartic effect alternating between noise and melody, and playing with our perception of rhythmical structures. Her latest project consists in a quadraphonic performance exploring the way our perception of rhythms is affected by the surrounding space, thereby introducing elements of psychoacoustics and gestalt theory. She is one of the Berlin Community Radio [INCUBATOR] residents for their 2017 edition, as well as one of the two chosen participants of this year’s Open Port Club residency in Sapporo (Japan). // Homepage
