    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

    Wed 26.07 19:00 // INSTALLATION, DJ SET, FOOD // CLUB
    BACKYARD SUMMER X ELISABETH MLADENOV

    An evening with raw immaterial – moving paintings by Elisabeth Mladenov. With DJ-sets by Norman Palm, Max Link and Lukas Dubro.
     
    Still: A Late Blue Myrrh I, 2017
     
    //
     
    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

    BROSHUDA
    … is the musical alter-ego of Graphic Designer & Visual Artist Florian Koch.Cross-pollinating a wide textural range of influences, Koch’s music incorporates elements of sound art, electroacoustic techniques, heavily processed ambient and field recording excursions, as well as more rhythmically oriented and beat-heavy pieces. Though kaleidoscopically varied, Koch ́s work is held together by a playful sense of experimentation and a willingness to explore new landscapes of sound through an experimental approach and applying varying production techniques to expand and further his already broad sonic palette.

    ACUD BACKYARD SUMMER X MUSIC POOL: ORGANIZING YOUR OWN SHOW

    You want to play a concert and are looking for bookings? How about organising your own show? Maybe inviting others along?
     
    At this Music Pool evening we want to look into the ins and outs of organizing a concert and the different activities associated with it: finding the right venue, making a budget, dealing with Gema, insurance etc., renting equipment, putting a team together, making a lineup, promoting the show and so on. In particular, we want to look at concerts at a smaller scale. We have invited concert organisers to share their experiences and insights with you from their different perspectives – booking shows in a venue, promoting concerts of other bands, and organising shows as a musician.
     
    This Music Pool evening is part of the ACUD backyard summer and will be outside in nice weather.
     
    Free Entry.
    No Registration needed.

    The Ghanaian DJ/producers marathon, relentlessly joyful DJ sets have swiftly become a thing of legend: splicing the neo-traditional dance music styles of his youth in Accra with the uptempo, bass-heavy, Roland 808-rooted sounds of Detroit techno, Chicago acid and ecstatic 90s chart house, Katapila adorns his killer selections with live electronic percussion and vocal interjections that help galvanise waves of full-blown euphoria wherever he plays.

    GHANA IS THE FUTURE
    by Peter Guyer and Thomas Burkhalter, CH 2015, (O/Engl), 25 min. Synopsis: The FOKN Bois raise money for the United States of America in the streets of Ghana. Their provocative motto: «Africa is on the way up, and the US are on the way down.» This short movie shows how these two rappers compete with, against and within various growing markets in Ghana: new churches like the «Alive Chapel International», and mobile phone companies like «Glo Mobile». This is an XL-teaser for the forthcoming long film project “contradict – aka Sound Translations” shot in Accra. // Musikfilm-FestivalNorient

BOMAYÉ! in Berlins ACUD club brings you these beats of contemporary urban Africa. Bass music, programmed rhythms, African electronic club music, from Mali to Kenya, from Nigeria to South Africa, from Kuduro and Coupé-Décalé to Balani Show, Bacardi House or Gqom. Traditions get carried on in digital forms. Its still the motherland, but forget about your clichés. BOMAYE! is programmed by Florian Sievers.

    INFO
     
    LUC LE TRUC
    With his Hamburg based francophil “Je Danse Donc Je Suis”-parties, Luc Le Truc made a 13 years long warm-up for giving you some ARROGANCE. Meanwhile he made stopovers i.a. at the Plötzlich or Fusion Festival and Clubs like Golden Pudel. The frenchymusicmadness started back in the 90s with the synthpopboygroup Les Frères Checkolade and the still existing radioshow “multiplication de l’amusement” on FSK 93,0. Trippy, hypnotic, hot like you and cold as ice, but most important: with attitude – this is how Luc Le Truc likes it and this is how his track selection will be for ARROGANCE.

    M.A.R.E.C
    Some say, French hip-hop is the second best in the world, French people say its the N°1… Sure you’ve heard of IAM, NTM, Booba and so on but have you heard of Jordee, Kekra, Hamza, PNL, MHD and all the others? M.A.R.E.C a la recette! Prepare to get some slap in the face with the finest and most banging hip-hop, rap, trap, cloud & afro from France and Francophonie, from the 90’s to yesterday, delivered as if it was a beautiful plate of cheese: from everywhere, everything tasty (maybe too much for you), sometimes stinky, taking a lot of room in your fridge but all beautiful in their own way. And trust me you’ll never get enough.
