On Forests, Planets and Distant Stars (an evening of electroacoustic music)

Saturday January 28, 2023 at 7 PM

The evening will feature 3 pieces composed by Omer Eilam during the last years. Beginning with an electronic music arrangement of ARIES by Karlheinz Stockhausen where the melody follows the geometry of the constellation, we will gradually get closer to home. In the Solar System Meditation we are invited to explore the polyphonic rotation of the planets around the sun. Zeroing in on the here and now, A Day at Hambacher Forst is a musical-storytelling journey which recollects 24 hours spent with a group of activists who were occupying the forest and trying to save it from destruction for the sake of coal mining.

IMPROVISED & EXPERIMENTAL 

SERIES OF EXPERIMENTAL SOUND INSTALLATIONS AND PERFORMANCES

Improvised & Experimental is a series of sound installations organised since November 2016 in Berlin. The aim of the series is to present free improvised and experimental sound and music without score (with occasional exceptions). So far over 150 performances have been organised at six different locations in Berlin, Germany, but also in Porto, Portugal, gathering over 600 Berlin-based and international artists from the experimental music scene.

 

Starting in a white cube gallery on Rosa-Luxemburg Strasse 26 in the district of Mitte, the series was established based on an idea of cellist Guilherme Rodrigues. The installations later moved into a more intimate setting in a private venue on Gormannstrasse 19. They are currently hosted seasonally every Wednesday in Hošek Contemporary’s performance space onboard Motor Ship Heimatland.
