The concert-series AGGREGATE is about the interaction of human and machine. With gamut inc, Marion Wörle and Maciej Sledziecki have developed several music machines and composition methods in the last years. Aggregate confronts human performers with the machine performers. Each evening will focus on a different state of matter.
This solid aggregation saw the interaction between gamut inc with Hacklander \ Hatam. gamut inc was found 2011 by Marion Wörle and Maciej Sledziecki, to explore the intersection of electronic and instrumental music. Hacklander \ Hatam is the hard-hittin drum + electronic music duo interested in transparency, liberation, rhythmic stability & its absence, sound as sculptural material; sound as a medium in which ideas are communicated.
Gamut inc is based in Berlin, and their debut album will be released autumn 2014. It is dedicated to ancient sound pioneers like the jesuit Athansius Kircher, using his composition techniques to create contemporary music. The musical focus lies in sonic textures, on the edge between noisy drones and harmonic patterns.
Hacklander/Hatam are Farahnaz Hatam and Colin M. Hacklander. Farahnaz Hatam is an experimental sound artist and is highly active in the Berlin experimental scenes. As an artist working with digital sound synthesis in SuperCollider, her current work is not only interested in sound as sculptural material, but as the medium in which ideas are communicated.
Over 15 years professional work as a molecular biologist, Farahnaz arrived at sound through the visual arts. Her past includes video art, sculpture, and subtle provocations through public art.
Colin M. Hacklander is a drummer & composer based in Berlin. Though mostly an autodidact, he studied electronic music at the Institute of Sonology in Den Haag where he also organized concerts at Bunker Record’s famed Dystopia. In Berlin, he is together with Hatam currently co-director of NK PROJEKT, a space for the avant-garde, experimentation & criticism.
