Rashad Becker & Okkyung Lee / Caterina Barbieri & Hacklander Hatam at Kesselhaus Museum Herzberge / Tuesday, 2.5.2017
Currently, Rashad Becker’s (PAN) live sets evolve around the angle of `traditional music of notional species`, a semiabstract synthetic narrative that seems appealing to a surprisingly wide audience. Okkyung Lee (EDITIONS MEGO) is a New York-based artist and South Korea native, has created a body of work blurring genre boundaries through collaborations and compositions while pushing the limitation of contemporary cello performance techniques. Her music draws from noise and extended techniques, jazz, Western classical, and Korean traditional and popular music.
Caterina Barbieri is an Italian composer now based in Berlin. By means of synthesis, pattern based operations and subtractive counterpoint, her music draws severe geometries in time and space. A focus on minimalism in composition arises from a meditation on primary waveforms and exploration of the polyphonic and polyrhythmic potential of sequencers. Repetition and pattern permutation as media to perceptual insight lie at the core of her current sonic research. After finishing her studies in classical guitar and electronic music, she has researched and produced music at the renowned Elektronmusikstudion in Stockholm, where she has intensively composed for the Buchla 200 system.
Hacklander \ Hatam is the percussion + electronic music duo of Colin Hacklander & Farahnaz Hatam. Interested in transparency, liberation, rhythmic stability & its absence, the depth of radical material heteronomy in contemporary capitalism & the nature of our mobilised conditioning; sound as sculptural material; sound as a medium in which ideas are communicated; digital sound synthesis with SuperCollider; drums, percussion & gongs.
Portuguese filmmaker Pedro Maia working mostly around the concept of Analogue Cinema, exploring the medium potentiality, and expanding the aesthetic and technological “heritage” of the classic films procedures of working with 16mm and 8mm material.
