NOME is pleased to announce a concert with the experimental interdisciplinary artist and musician Chris Newman with Luciano Chessa and Ensemble KNM Berlin on 11 November 2022 at 7:00 PM. This is the second concert in the series Sounds and Traces, curated by Luciano Chessa.
Chris Newman is an experimental interdisciplinary artist using the medium of music, painting, video, drawing and literature. From 1976 to 1979 he studied music at King’s College London, taking a Bachelor of Music. During this time he met the Russian poet Eugene Dubnov and started to translate Russian poets (Osip Mandelstam, Velimir Khlebnikov), this process of translating proving important for his later work (e.g. from one medium to another / from life to art).
Newman moved to Cologne, Germany, in 1980 to study with Mauricio Kagel (New Music, Theatre / Video) at the Hochschule für Musik Köln. First public performance singing own songs in 1982. He founded chamber-punk rock band Janet Smith in 1983; met Morton Feldman in 1984. First concerts and video showings: Institute of Contemporary Arts, London; Theater am Turm, Frankfurt; Kölnischer Kunstverein, Cologne; Cooper Union, New York.
Suoni e Tracce * Sounds and Traces * Klänge und Spuren is a multi-part sonic program consisting of two exhibitions and five concerts curated by Luciano Chessa. The concert program will culminate in a group exhibition in June 2023 entitled Sounds and Traces, which explores sound and its visual consequences. The exhibition will feature works by Soheila Bajelan, Terry Berlier, Øyvind Brandtsegg, Christopher Burns, Constance DeJong, Laura Grisi, Joe Jones, Chris Kallmyer, and Lee Ranaldo.
