Blind Signal GRMN - VTNM aims to investigate the diversities and wide range of sonic practice through collaborative creations across multiple geographies.

The second edition to the two part series: Blind Signal GRMN-VTNM, nine solo artists, musicians and composers from Vietnam and Germany, will be creating new pieces engaging the specificities of the space.

The nine artists are invited for five days of collective work, willing to create a common ground in the exploration of sonic arts, promoting immersive group listening experiences fully stimulate by noise, silence, frequency, transmission, performativities of media objects, resonance and acoustics, while remaining sensitive to the individual complexities and poetics of each identities.

Following three days of research, the musicians and composers will offer solo live acts and several sound pieces that will be presented in the premises at the Kleiner Wasserspeicher on Friday 20 & Saturday 21 of September, 2019.

Artistic exchange is a phenomenal act that allows for the open sharing of creativity between different realities. The main goal of the project is to offer a bridge linking Berlin-based and Vietnamese artists that will benefit both sides, hoping that interesting new works might emerge and continue beyond this specific event.

Above all we understand that project location has an undeniable impact on artistic creation. Therefore, this residency will offer to artists an atypical crossing space where their experience can be expanded, both for Hanoi and Berlin residents. Blind Signal is a celebration of Sound art as a possible platform for connection between distant geographies, communities and cultural backgrounds.

Marcia Bassett: Zaïmph

Zaïmph is the solo project of Marcia Bassett. Zaïmph’s recordings and performances shimmer with a dense, dissonant and often unsettling electronic aura, shot through with flashes of meditative beauty. Her preferred sonic toolkit includes prepared guitar, keyboard, cracked drum machines, custom-built noise/drone boxes, processed environmental sounds and tabletop effects.

“It would be tough to write a history of the last two decades in underground music without including Marcia Bassett … and any angle would have to include Zaïmph, Bassett’s solo project. Through small-run releases on numerous labels, including her own, Heavy Blossom), Zaïmph has carved out a unique take on decaying feedback, assaultive fuzz, echoey ambience, and abstract expression.” – Marc Masters, Pitchfork, The Out Door

Maria Chavez

Improvised solo turntable performance that combines recorded sounds from vinyl records with the electroacoustic sounds of vinyl and needle in various deteriorating phases. This raw approach merges the practice of improvisation with the inherent unstable conditions of a turntable, allowing accidents to dictate each sound piece.

Born in Lima, Peru and based in NYC, Maria Chávez is best known as an abstract turntablist, sound artist, and DJ. Accidents, coincidence, and failures are themes that unite her sound sculptures, installations and other works with her improvised solo turntable performance practice.

“Over the last decade, Chavez has pursued pristine and thoughtful turntablist work.”- The Wire

“Chavez’s machines pop, crackle, screech, and emit bursts of music and noise as they grapple with inputs they were not built to read. Chavez has hijacked a system meant to precisely replicate sounds and pushed it to the extremes of its function, discovering beautiful, chaotic aural landscapes in the process.” – Sophie Weiner, The Village Voice

Audrey Chen and Megumi Eda

Performing together for the first time, Chen and Eda will be revisiting the process of internal/external corporeal movement and primal athleticism, combining Chen's vocal hyper extensions, the analog controlled chaos of Peter B's Fourses, and Eda's gracefully obtuse/alien movement vocabularies.

"Beautiful ballerinas are often caught in their own beauty. They definitely don’t know how to mug. But Megumi can morph in a flash from small boy to impossibly regal diva to a small squirrel chewing on a nut.”

– Laurie Anderson

https://www.megumieda.com/

"Chen has created an uncompromising and idiosyncratic music, tightly disciplined yet acoustically wild and heavy with implication.
Her ultra-verbal vocalising, often reminiscent of the visceral and emotionally charged sound poetry of François Dufréne or Henri Chopin, exposes physiological aspects of utterance that are concealed within standardised articulation and day to day speech. Fleshy, breath-driven and flecked with spittle, Chen's voice emanates not just from her mouth but from an ensemble of upper body surfaces, channels, passages and cavities." - Julien Cowley, The Wire

SOLO // We Are Not SAME SAME @ STUDIO CHERIE, BERLIN, GERMANY

8:00 PM20:00

SOLO // We Are Not SAME SAME @ STUDIO CHERIE, BERLIN, GERMANY

WE ARE NOT SAME SAME
BUT WE ARE DIFFERENT 

FREE EVENT for people of Asian descent, friends AND allies - people who want to help spread the awareness and enjoy an open exchange. 

Donations VERY VERY appreciated. 


TALKS // PERFORMANCES // ART // PHOTOGRAPHY // WORKSHOPS // MUSIC // FOOD // DRINKS // INSTALLATIONS 

An intersectional feminist event for people of South, East, South-East Asian descent, the LGBTQIA+ community and allies. Come together, share experiences, begin discourse and find empowerment.

Women* have historically been the object of sexual exploitation and fetishism, however that type of objectification increases when it comes to women* of colour and LGBTQIA+. Of course, these are not the only topics of importance but a community that requires more visibility and solidarity.

The WE ARE NOT SAME SAME event highlights the misconception that all Asian countries can be placed under the one umbrella, without regard or respect towards their differences in culture, individuality and history. This event follows up the I AM NOT A FORTUNE COOKIE event and will be spotlighting the implications encircling exotification, sexism, objectification, racism, stereotyping and diaspora. 

It is apparent that many shy away from discussing the social, cognitive and emotional roots of prejudice. This is a way we can come together to begin discourses surrounding issues within our society and better understand how to move towards a more equal future. I invite you all to come and enjoy this two-day event!
