The concert series Entangled Sounds presents an unsual duo of modified turntables and piano with Strotter Inst. & Peter Vukmirovic Stevens and sound artist Camilla Vatne Barratt-Due with her concert-installation ‘You always wanted more in life, but now you don’t have the appetite..’ for accordion reeds and an altered mechanical system.
Strotter Inst. – a project by Bern based artist Christoph Hess – generates a rich spectrum of noisy soundscapes and polyrhythmically condensed eruptions using modified records (cut, stickered, scraped, etc.), modified cartridges (soldered violin strings, wire springs or sewing needles instead of the diamond) and other materials (fabric, metal, cardboard, paper, felt, etc.). The music ranges from a low-fi rumble changing into concrete clicks and scrapes, followed by epic drones and multilayered broken beats to fall back into tricky bass-meditations.
Peter Vukmirovic Stevens is a musically diversified composer, pianist and visual artist. His distinct musical works from solo piano to symphony orchestra are heard in concert halls across the U.S., Europe, the Caucuses and Japan. His compositions are performed by renowned musicians, including by New York’s All-Star Orchestra musicians violinist Mikhail Shmidt and violist Mara Gearman.
Camilla Vatne Barratt-Due is a sound artist based in Berlin and Oslo. She has a background in classical accordion, electronic music and composition. The music is often based upon technical / mechanical structures where she explores ways of playing instruments as well as practices such as live coding.
The concert series Entangled Sounds at KM28 features performers using self-made instruments (acoustic/electro-acoustic) or materialities of audio technology/media (turntables, cassette tapes) to foreground artistic practices exploring materiality, object-specific sounds and (meta-)mechanical motion.
