Driftmachine and Viron Erol Vert exhibition at Galerie Wedding / Thursday 09.02, Friday 03.03. and Thursday 23.03.2017
Not one but three very special performances by D/B faves Driftmachine this Febuary and March with the modular duo providing a soundtrack for the Viron Erol Vert exhibition at Galerie Wedding.
Announcing the onset of night, Driftmachine —a Berlin-based duo comprised of Andreas Gerth (Tied & Tickled Trio) and Florian Zimmer (Saroos)— have created Nocturnes, a psychoactive, dream-inducing stimulant of sorts: Evoking and maintaining a trancelike state, the duo’s six-part journey into the dark was originally inspired by reading The Rest Is Noise and listening to the music discussed in Alex Ross’ seminal book. The resulting soundscapes, written and recorded since 2012, redefine the lines between insomnia and slumber, between wraithlike dub grooves gone awry, the dancing flicker of a slack-joint bedside lamp, and eerie electronics.
As part of of the exhibiton project »The Name of Shades of Paranoia, Called Different Forms of Silence« by Viron Erol Vert, curated by Dr. Bonaventure Soh Bejeng Ndikung and Solvej Helweg Ovesen in the context of UP (Unsustainable Privileges), Driftmachine will play a set of three different live shows at Galerie Wedding.
In Viron Erol Vert’s installation that the artist calls »Dreamatory« the soundscapes created by Driftmachine will be a psychoactive, dream-inducing stimulant of sorts, referring to the dream goods Morpheus, Phobetor and Phantasos. Driftmachine’s first show —Oneiro Trilogy Live Performance No.1 »Morpheus« — will be played at the opening of Viron Erol Vert’s exhibition on February 9, from 8 to 11 pm.
The second concert by Driftmachine —Oneiro Trilogy Live Performance No.2 »Phobetor«— will happen on Marsch 3, at 6pm and from 9 to 11 pm, framing the artist talk »Talk_about_Dreams« with Viron Erol Vert, Dr. Bonaventure Soh Bejeng Ndikung, presented by Dr. Elena Agudio and Dr. Joerg Fingerhut (AoN_Platform for Art and Neuroscience). Oneiro Trilogy Live Performance No.3 »Phantasos« will accompany a Live Drawing Performance by Viron Erol Vert on March 23, 5 pm.
