Another dose of whirring rhythms and dark drones in the Avantgardistic State, courtesy of Stefan Schneider and Sven Kacirek (Bureau B, DE). The duo are joined by beguiling Swedish singer Sofia Jernberg.
The Düsseldorf / Hamburg duo Schneider Kacirek released their debut album “Shadows Documents” in 2014, a record which drew on their trips to Kenya as producers. “Shadows Documents” was a somnambulistic and sample-free interpretation of Kenyan music based round drums and percussion and analogue synthesizers. The subsqequent experience of playing live (with the likes of John McEntire (Tortoise, The Sea and Cake) has created a tougher, more concentrated and open sound on their new album “Radius Walk”
Stefan Schneider is well known for his other projects Kreidler and To Rococo Rot, and his albums with Hans-Joachim Roedelius. For his part, Sven Kacirek’s solo album, “Kenya Sessions” has garnered considerable praise.
Kara-Lis Coverdale, also known as K-LC, is a Canadian composer, musician, producer, based in Montreal. Coverdale is well known both for her piano, organ, and keyboard work and her experimental electronic projects. She creates colourful and dense arrangements that blur the line between the human and the data with a unique penchant for long-form melody, harmony, and sonic detail. Kara-Lis’s show is part of her residency at WORM.
Jung An Tagen
Jung An Tagen is one of many pseudonyms of the Vienna-based musician and artist Stefan Juster. His third album, ‘Das Fest Der Reichen’ (The Festival of the Rich), is released on Editions Mego. This LP combines influences from early Detroit techno, trance, electro-acoustic music (à la Parmegiani), and high-end sound design into a hallucinogenic whole. The visual part of his work is aesthetically close to his music. Juster works with digital media and video, where reduced, quasi-geometric forms move over the screen in aleatory patterns and form a synesthetic connection with the sound.
