After the success of last year’s beautiful sunset Kiezalon on the rooftop terrace of the Haus der Kulturen der Welt, we welcome you back to the stunning venue in the heart of Tiergarten.
Perila is a St. Petersburg-born, Berlin-based sound and visual artist, DJ and performer exploring sensitive borderlines and depths of subtle matter. She is a co-founder of radio.syg.ma, WET boss, and engaged in several other music projects such as Aseptic Stir. Her music is dense narratives drifting through a rich sound palette submerging a listener into a pretty personal trip. Constantly shifting moods and textures Perila creates comfort space for emotions to float, merge, evaporate and ride in a deep context. Her practice is aimed to challenge and overcome boundaries and share this expansion with the Other.
Berlin-based James Ginzburg is an artist and musician whose work has encompassed experimental electronic music and art production, folk music, film score and extensive dance music production. He is one half of Emptyset (Thrill Jockey, Raster-Noton and Subtext). Emptyset have produced works and installations for the David Roberts Art Foundation, Tate Britain and V&A Museum, and presented live performances with Unsound, CTM/Transmediale, Kunsthalle Zurich and Sonic Acts among others.
Alexander Molero, a Venezuelan composer of electronic music based on analog synthesizers, has lived in Barcelona for some years. It is from Europe that he projects a fantasy that seeks to capture European visions of the ideal of the tropical. Such ideals were documented by romantic explorers who set out in search of “new worlds.” Venturing through the South American rainforest exploring the unknown, evoking utopian worlds. Molero will perform ‘Ficciones del Trópico’, his exceptional conceptual debut album, which touches on themes of the western obsession with tropical exoticism.
Sometimes referred to by Berliners as “the Pregnant Oyster,” the building is an impressive example of modernist architecture, and is home to Henry Moore’s heaviest bronze sculpture, his final completed work.
