KLANGKELLER

KLANGKELLER is a performance and exhibition space for art, music and theory. It works on the basis that experimentation and spontaneity are crucial for a living and reflective art practice to survive. Each KLANGKELLER night has 3 presentation/performance slots (45mins, 20mins and 5mins) which members of the changing KLANGKELLER family can reserve directly 1 month, 1 week or 1 day in advance.

KLANGKELLER events take place at Kastanienallee 77 (Prenzlauerberg, Berlin) in the keller or the kino.

Giorgio Dursi - Real Time Mental Image Manipulation Transmitted Through Monophonic Chant (Variation #Speedy)
5 minutes
I start recalling to my mind the objects that surround me: a chair, a table, the air in the room, whatever might be. They appear as floating mental images. I translate those visual images into images of words which stand for those objects: “CUP OF COFFEE ON THE TABLE*”. At this point I start to decompose the image, improvising and transmitting to the outer environment through Monophonic Chant: “FOPUCOOOO OOOONEFFEEECO THEONLEEEBTAAAAA*”. *However I will be using my native Italian language. The slow, atemporal, repetitive but always changing pace of the Monophonic Chant, the like you can find for example in Medieval sacred music as Plainchant, follows the natural flux of the mental process.

Confindustrial Sinfonietta
45 minutes
The Confindustrial Sinfonietta has been born around a few years ago, with the purpose to create based on the music of Futurism and its descendents, from contemporary music to noise, from ambient to industrial. With the slow flow of time, its a-synchronous production moved towards the blurred representation of noisy soundscape, whose roots are ideally connected to the futurist manifesto “The art of noise” (“L'arte dei rumori”, L.Russolo, 1913). Contemporary music tracks, early 1900's recordings, natural and industrial field recordings, drone-music and electronic intrusions, reverse playing, extracts from rallies and speeches, sonic interferences and random noises… overlapped and crossed, like the metamorphic phases of a rock mass, create these “futurist phono-schists”. Something that goes past the human limit of listenability. The Confindustrial Sinfonietta is ad indefinite number of tape, played with a few decks, with different form, age and brand. It is one of the first sonic expressions of the Brown Bloc, a regiment of creative laziness: an existential choice that brings to the constant attempt to awake the “inner sofa” of every listener. confindustrial.noblogs.org/sinfonietta mixcloud.com/confindustrial/ confindustrial.bandcamp.com facebook.com/confindustrial.sinfonietta * Video live set, february 2018 http://www.ursss.com/2018/03/confindustrial-sinfonietta/ * Audio live set 14.07.017: https://www.mixcloud.com/confindustrial/tana-live-per-ctrl-al-leoncavallo-1407017/ * Audio live set, 18.02.016: https://www.mixcloud.com/confindustrial/piano-terra-sessions-n0/
