Care Of Editions presents an evening of psychedelic music and blues-infused standing waves by Catherine Christer Hennix, set in the chill-friendly environment of Beate Uwe.
Performing her slow-motion dervish disco will be Ms. Hennix’s Psychotropic Five—with Hilary Jeffery, Amir ElSaffar, Paul Schwingenschlögl, and a secret special guest—in a rare and spontaneous assemblage to support Ms. Hennix’s last Berlin concert as a Berlin local.
Catherine Christer Hennix (Stockholm, 1948) is a Swedish-American composer, poet, philosopher, scientist and visual artist associated with drone minimal music. C.C.
Hennix began her musical studies in the 1960s by exploring the music of the art music composers Iannis Xenakis and Karlheinz Stockhausen. Hennix met La Monte Youngand Hindustani raga master Pandit Pran Nath at the Nuits du Fondation Maeght festival in 1970 and pursued studies with both men during the 1970s.
Hennix also drew inspiration from the Japanese Gagaku music and early vocal, 13th-century music of Perotinus and Leoninus. Hennix frequently worked together with the American anti-art philosopher, composer and violinist Henry Flynt.
Briefly entitled “Emanation of Grace and the Gathering of Union”, her multi-channel world premiere spatializes a collection of ragas and maqams with layers of brass, tambura, keyboard and singing.
