Corpora Aliena at Iklectik – Experimental Music Concert 26th January, 2019
Corpora Aliena is pleased to present a concert of diverse experimental music performances: Concrete Textures: Or Beauty from the Hard-Edge – featuring international artists and musicians including:
Vera Bremerton – who will create a concrete-hard sonic wall, not for the faint-eared. Live vocals and electronics, churning, breaking, burning, shaking. In praise of modernity and beauty;
James L. Malone – whose performance will be a live improvised exploration of macro-sound, coldness, brutality and opacity;
Laura Netz – will create a live audio-visual performance consisting of experimental electromagnetic power noise with DIY circuitry (LDR, Schmitt triggers, strobe lights and Induction Coils) and a handmade synth (oscillators and LFOs);
Sz. Berlin – Towards A Concrete Dystopia. This performance will explore the sonic and symbolic properties of concrete in London and beyond. Using field recordings and live electronics and processing, it will provide a soundtrack to the ambivalent and even terrifying status of concrete and Brutalism in the public imagination.
In addition to the live performances, there will be a screening of a new video by the Russian/Americam artist Anna Studinovskaya – and which re-explores the theme of racism in the United States, reflecting on voice, embodiment, and fetish through the commingling of sound and image.
The Concrete Textures: Or Beauty from the Hard-Edge concert is an exciting opportunity to see and hear some of the leading international musicians and artists who are a part of the contemporary experimental music scene.
