Do not miss our first open-air Kiezsalon on the beautiful HKW roof top terrace. During sunset and with electronic music mastermind Laurel Halo (Hyperdub/Honest Jon’s) and Berlin based Australian experimental guitarist Julia Reidy (Editions Mego/Black Truffle), both presenting exciting new material.
► Laurel Halo, born 1985 in Detroit, is an electronic music composer, performing artist and DJ, based in Berlin. Since the release of her debut album Quarantine (2012) on the pioneering London label Hyperdub, she has established herself as a distinct innovative voice within electronic music. Drawing from a range of music lineages, her considered approach has enabled her to maintain a signature aesthetic across a stylistically diverse output, traversing pop, ambient, leftfield club, experimental electronica and film score. She has released on labels including Hyperdub, Honest Jon’s, Latency and Livity Sound.
► On ‘Guitar’, the Australian, Berlin-based musician Julia Reidy, melts down sharp synths; electric fuzz and flex; uncanny found sounds; and autotuned voice and harmonica in a heady, overpowering potion. Reidy’s music sweeps you up. It’s restless, always travelling on. Lonesome tones into machine chorales into hesitant hum. The LP’s side-long cuts sway between scenes but are always rooted: Julia’s guitar and vocal lines seem mapped to the natural ebb and flow of breath and thought, they lull you as they push through vast and secret spaces.
