AUDREY CHEN SOLO @ SPEICHER II, BERLIN, GERMANY

https://www.facebook.com/events/1969901003276815/

bohemian drips presents: Speicher II

"Speicher II" is the second edition of a festival for site-specific music which takes place from the 15th to the 17th of June 2018 in the old water reservoirs of Berlin-Pankow. The immense acoustic scenery of the two water reservoirs will be witness to ten concerts across genres which will open up a spectrum of styles oscillating between New Improvisation, Free Jazz, Electroacoustic music, Drone, Noise and Minimal Music. Carefully curated by "bohemian drips", who alongside the artists approach the given space as an independent compositional dimension and as a joint starting point for musical, technical and performative processes, in order to set a common thread between music and architecture. The peculiar acoustic characteristics of the two water reservoirs stand out with their natural reverberation that can reach up to 18 seconds; an unusual scenario which usually doesn't apply to a traditional concert or studio context. Hence, every composition and performance is distinguished by its absolute individuality.

MOZG FESTIVAL, WARSAW, POLAND

HISS & VISCERA meets AFTERBURNER:

For this special occasion, two unique projects from vocalist Audrey Chen join forces for the first time for a synthesis of sound and light. Hiss and Viscera is the collaborative project of Richard Scott and Audrey Chen, combining Scott's exhaustive catalogue of modular synth clangs, plosives, and propulsions with Chen's vivid lexicon of vocal pops, rasps and explosions. Afterburner is the immersive sound and light project of Doron Sadja and Audrey Chen, combining Chen's extended vocal techniques with Sadja's dense electronic sound world high intensity lights and projections. For MÓZG Festival, the two ensembles will collaborate on a new work, including performances by Hiss and Viscera with light projections and samples from Afterburner.

AUSLAND RESIDENCY PRESENTATION, BERLIN, GERMANY

AUDREY CHEN and MARGARET RORISON

voice and 16mm film projection

between September 29 - August 4, 2017 Chen and Rorison will be in residence to develop and present their collaboration.

The collaboration between Audrey Chen and Margaret Rorison works inside the intimate worlds of their maternal lines, as experienced through the myriad sounds of the human voice and 16mm film projection. Images and sounds captured in spaces brought together by their individual experiences of mother, daughter, granddaughter and how that affects their identities- and channels towards decision making, touch, habit, memory and language.
