Digital in Berlin with the systM Gallery presents a new series of events, the D/B systM Sessions. These events will take in live laptop concerts featuring contemporary new atmospheric sound scapes and field-recordings – all set against the backdrop of international art exhibitions and finest French wine.
All this in a charming and lovely gallery in the heart of Berlin. This serious and ambitious art venue is the perfect place to meet up for a cultured start to the weekend. This time with japanese musician, composer, sound artist and producer Midori Hirano.
Midori Hirano`s productions are based around the use of traditional instrumentation – piano, strings, voice – and augmented with often subtle electronic processing and digital samples creating a rich, rolling sound that is at once warm and melodic while tracing unexpected musical trajectories.
Her first album, LushRush, was released on Noble records in 2006 and was primarily a collaborative affair, seeing her work with a number of guest musicians to create one of those beautiful, sprawling debuts that radiates a hazy blissfulness upon first listen.
Her second, Klo:Yuri, saw her further develop her sound, garnering critical acclaim from various magazines in the world including TIME magazine. She is also in demand as a composer of soundtracks for European and Asian films, with 2008 seeing her become the only Japanese composer to invited to take part in the Berlinale Talent Campus, hosted by the Berlin International Film Festival.
Art films such as the Qatsi trilogy by Godfrey Reggio will be screened as a visual accompaniment.
systM is a bar AND systM is a gallery for design disciplines. The spectrum reaches urban art, graphic, interior and product design, fashion and far beyond that every disciplines defining spaces.
