NOVEMBER AT ACUD

here are a couple of our favourite songs by bands playing music at acud during this greyest november

ACUD PLAYLIST
MARK ERNESTUS

Sénégal, on Africa’s most Western tip, has bred what many consider the most complex and beautiful percussion style in all of Africa, Sabar drumming. Today it can be found at the roots of the country’s very own dance music, Mbalax. On occasion of the release of his new album with the Ndagga Rhythm Force, legendary producer MARK ERNESTUS is going to rock the floor Friday, 28th November with his favourite Mbalax tunes from the Nineties and early Noughties. For ACUD Blog he put together a playlist with five Senegalese Mbalax rockers.

ACUD INVENTORY
THE FILTER EXPERIMENT

THE […] EXPERIMENT SERIES is a transdisciplinary open seminar organised by Occulto Magazine’s editor and publisher Alice Cannava in ACUD Studio space. Scientists and artists, professional and amateurs, curious nerds and hesitant passers-by are all warmly invited to a hybrid multiformats program – lectures, artist’s talks, performances, screenings, workshops, one-night exhibitions and more. Recurring lecturers and one-time guests will include hard and soft science researchers, historians and writers as well as visual artists, film directors, musicians and designers. Expect an informal situation, the possibility to develop a collective ongoing discussion, reports of each session with bibliographic references, good food and music.
 
Participating in the first experiment is American science writer RUSS HODGE who is currently working at the Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine (MDC) in Berlin Buch. His work as author includes fiction, popular science and collaborative papers in peer-reviewed journals. Hodge will hold a lecture that will be followed by a screening of works by Italian, Berlin based film director GIUSEPPE BOCCASSINI. In between there will be a short break for food provided by Proper Meals. To give you the chance to properly prepare yourself for the night, Alice has gathered an inventory with quotes, clips, labels, links – and the recommended dresscode.

ACUD PLAYLIST
SILVIA KASTEL

Berlin still is an important center for experimental music. A whole bunch of exciting contemporary artists and labels are based in town, amongst them label Blackest Ever Black that just moved from the UK to Berlin. One of their latest signees is vocalist and multi-instrumentalist SILVIA KASTEL who is about to release her debut LP on the label. As one half of Control Unit (with Ninni Morgia), she has worked with the likes of Smegma, Factrix, Gary Smith, Aki Onda and Gate (Michael Morley of The Dead C). Hailing from Italy via Brooklyn, NY but with a predilection for the bleak and jarring sounds of the UK’s first industrial wave, Kastel’s confrontational yet sensual work incorporates voice, rhythm, synths, tape echo and dub influences.
 
This Friday, Silvia will provide DJ duties when mysterious Argentinian producer NGLY returns to Berlin to support his most recent release (“Psychosis” EP) on Brooklyn’s L.I.E.S. label. The night will be opened by Grammar of Movement, who has recently released his debut EP on London’s purveyor’s of abstract, heavy techno/house. Lobster Theremin is the second DJ of the night. For ACUD blog, Silvia gathered a playlist with her most fav tunes right now.
