The Heroines of Sound Festival’s Fifth Edition will take place at Hebbel am Ufer over three days, December 6th-8th 2018.

Introducing the first part of the homage to experimental filmmaker Mary Ellen Bute (1906-83), we will see and hear two new compositions for Bute’s films, commissioned by the festival.

The concert evening will proceed with a performance by Berlin-based Swede Klara Andersson aka Fågelle. Visually supported in her sound worlds by filmmaker and video artist Beate Kunath she mingles performative sound art, noise, and singing, exploring encounters between art and pop, music and poetry, scraping sounds and big emotions.

The performance SKIN by Claudia Robles – Angel combines music with video and light, as does Kummerang Gloomerang BewegungLichterKlang by StratoFyzika.

The evening will culminate with Berlin activist and musician gudrun gut, founding member of legendary bands such as Mania D., Einstürzende Neubauten, Malaria! and Matador. On Dec. 7th, 2018 her new solo album “Moment” will be released, from which she will perform first pieces on the evening before to open up the festival.

The first panel of the festival is dedicated to “Visible Music” and discusses different forms of visualization of music, such as the combination of image and sound, performance, light and movement.

Ensemble KNM Berlin showcases compositions by Katharina Rosenberger, performed by the young American composer Jessie Marino in their German premiere. Juliana Hodkinson and Ana Maria Rodriguez expand the classic set-up of the concert with video, light, and performance elements into scenic and kinematic compositions.

The premiere will be followed by MftT #3A by Wilde & Hülcker for voice, movements and video input. This composite mission of the Heroines of Sound is dedicated to the dog Archi. The evening concludes with Marta Zapparolis solo performance “Sonata Per Eterna”, in which in addition to electronics, tape recorders and tape machines are also used.

The festival’s second panel will discuss “Sound Art, Electronic Music and Performance in Slovenia, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and ex-Yugoslavia”. The concert program opens with the homage to Mary Ellen Buté film screenings presenting a world premiere of film music commissioned to Lucrecia Dalt.

Furthermore Steffi Weismann, Paula Schopf, and Jessica Ekomane will showcase a unique tray of solo performances juxtaposing electronic sound, performance and film. For Generation S (premiere) Steffi Weismann uses her own voice together with historical film footage (Secrets of Nature from 1930), objects, interviews and field recordings; in Espacios en Soledad (premiere) Paula Schopf combines record players, dubplates and video; while Jessica Ekomane concentrates exclusively on electronics.

The after-show party WAU will be directed by Mary Čtvery aka DJ Mary C, with eccentric rap, hacked and convoluted beats, dangerous electro, juke and dirty downtempo.
