Night of the Artists’ Bands
Sat 15.09.2018 – 8:30 p.m.
KGB-Kunstwoche 2018 event program comes to a perfect conclusion in the KGB-Sounds concert: four outstanding artist’s bands—each featuring artists as comfortable in the world of sounds as they are in visual arts—perform live on stage at Ballhaus Berlin. Dance-oriented interludes are provided by KGB DJ Bianca Kruk and after the last concert, a full after-party with DJ Phuong-Dan on the decks awaits visitors. Admission is free.
A cross-media project by brothers Martin Böttger and Theo Boettger, MOMA brings together visions of dystopian realities in musical form through experimental soundscapes bordered by gloomy rhythms, video projections, flickering pop structures, rap, and elements of post-punk.
After a seven-year break, Tom Früchtl (guitar), Wolfgang Mayer (vocals), and Michael Schultze (computer) perform again as Powerbook death-metal band, Makita, to sing, play and scream against depression, individuality, and self-improvement. Their forthcoming album is dedicated to Jade Goody and Karl Marx’s 200th birthday.
◊ Les Trucs
Half flesh and blood, half electronic—half experiment, half pop. Using tried and tested techniques, Les Trucs, a human-machine collective made up of Charlotte Simon and Toben Piel, build atmospheres from sound, text, composition, and dance to turn a concertante intervention into a musical happening.
The dry, gloomy rhythms of post-eurodance beats distilled through minimalism are erotic for some and for others, purely asexual. Either way, it is not easy to get Berlin-based duo Easter—Stine Omar and Max Boss— on stage and their performance is set to be a real highlight of the evening!
Berlin DJ Bianca Kruk has almost become a KGB-Sounds fixture. She sweetens the space between concerts with her dance-bass-lunatic-disco. Dancing is allowed!
Cultural anthropologist, music curator, and DJ, Hamburg-based Phuong-Dan provides the finest in experimental electronic music for a great KGB after party.
