Doors 8pm, concerts start 8:30pm
@ ausland – Lychener Strasse 60, 10437 Berlin
Liebig12 in collaboration with ausland are happy to present the two following duo concerts:
*** Marcia Bassett and Samara Lubelski
first performed as a duo in 2009, improvising musical scores to films by Michael Snow and Hollis Frampton at X-Initiative, Next Years Model series at DIA. Since their initial collaboration, Bassett and Lubelski have continued to draw from their like-minded approach to improvisational music; creating personal interplay with the environmental surroundings to expand on abstraction, chromatic noise, and long form drone.Both Bassett and Lubelski have extensive backgrounds in the East Coast /NYC sub-underground.
Bassett has performed in experimental music projects for over twenty years including “Un”, “GHQ”, “Hototogisu”, “Double Leopards” and her solo project “Zaimph”.
Lubelski is best known as a solo artist with eight full-length releases, but she has also been involved in various art-music provocations, “Hall of Fame”, “Tower Recordings”, as a member of Thurston Moore’s band, and in her associations with the long-standing German collective “Metabolismus”.
*** Heidrun Schramm‘s work includes intermedia composition and audiovisual installation. Her electroacoustic concepts employ source material from acoustic instruments, objects, and field recordings. The staged results are hybrid forms between acousmatic concerts, performance art, and installation. The initial point of her work can be an incidental noise or discreet tone, simply happening in a given situation.
Schramm’s work has been performed, exhibited, and screened in festivals, venues and galleries such as: Heroines of Sound Festival Berlin, Kunstverein Gera, One Minute Film Festival Aarau/Switzerland, Velak Gala Vienna, Blurred Edges Festival Hamburg.
Additionally, she has been teaching at the UdK Berlin since 2013, and has been leading artistic workshops in schools since 2011.
*** JD ZAZIE is a DJ, avant-turntablist and sound artist based in Berlin. Coming from a DJ and a radiophonic background, JD Zazie has explored over the years different approaches of real-time manipulation on fixed recorded sound. In her work she redefines DJ and electroacoustic activities. As a solo performer, in small groups or large ensembles she moves in an area which is constantly stretching the borders of what is supposed to be DJ mixing, free improvisation and composed music.
Intended as music instruments CDjs, turntables and mixer are her tools to mix the specific sound-sources she plays (mostly electronic music, electroacoustic music, musique concrète, field recordings and improvised music).
The typology of the sound-sources varies from already existing audio publications and sound effects, to self recorded audio files – as live-set and field-recordings -, to selected pre-mixed material. Juxtaposition, decontextualization, fragmentation, repetition, sonic texture, scratch and error are elements of the grammar adopted to relate, organize and rearrange the sound material.
