[audio:dj elephant power – switch balanced.mp3] The “second coming” of Laika’s event series at the lovely Sputnik Kino in Kreuzberg feature, among others, the indescribably talented turntablism of DJ Elephant Power from Mouse On Mars’ Sonig label and Gina D’Orio from Berlin electro-terrorists Cobra Killer.
The full line-up of this audio-visual spectacle looks like this:
“David OReilly is a young Irish animator working out of Berlin. This
year he won the best short film Golden Bear in Berlin for Please Say
Something, a melancholy modern day kitchen sink drama.

Gina D`Orio played her first gig in the age of 12, two days after the
wall came down. In 1995 Gina D’Orio and Patric Catani aka Candie Hank
founded EC8OR that was a huge success around the world. In 1998 Gina
D`Orio and Annika Line Trost founded Cobra Killer whos 5th album – Uppers & Downers – recently came out on monika enterprise.
Wojciech Kosma lives between Berlin and London, working between art and
composition. His artworks and performances are often spatial, sonic,
obliquely interactive and poetic, creating speculative aesthetic
interventions in public and gallery space.
Together with Prof. Dr. Dieter Daniels Sandra Naumann was in charge of
the project „See this Sound“. The book “Audiovisuology. An
Interdisciplinary Compendium of Audiovisual Culture” is a substantial
compendium with texts about diverse forms of arts, in which the
relations of sound and image play a significant role.
And all that set in the charming location of the Sputnik Kino bar, high above the roofs of Kreuzberg.
