EAV@Urban Spree / CTM Vorspiel Dark Music Night

EAV@Urban Spree

Music Event part of the Transmediale / CTM Vorspiel program

INNER RHYTHM / DARK MUSIC NIGHT

Come down in Urban Spree’s basement for a night focusing on dark aesthetics & sounds with an ethereal folk concert, a cello noise sound performance and a party with three djs playing 80’s dark music, Post Punk, EBM, Acid House, Electro & Techno.

VENA WARD (Berlin) – Ethereal folk concert

BYRON REZA AFSHAR (BRU/T – Berlin) – Cello Noise Perfo

DANIELE COSMO (Lux Rec – Zurich) – Electro / Acid House / Techno

AV SKARDI (BRU/T – Berlin) – 80’s / EBM / Techno

COBEIA (EAV / Inner Rhythm – Geneva / Berlin) – No Wave/Post Punk / Chicago / Acid / Ghetto House / Bass / Techno

In resonance with CTM’s New Geographies thematic, we have invited for this Vorspiel program, artists, musicians & djs that share a link with the multi-cultural cities that are Geneva and Zurich in Switzerland.

With this event we want to point out a little fraction of what comes out of such melting pot and will continue in the future to highlight the long existing link between artists, cultural activists, musicians and djs from Switzerland and their counterparts in Berlin. Very rich and varied in its cultural outputs, we have chosen for this night to focus on a program looking at a spectre of dark aesthetics and sounds taking advantage of Urban Spree’s grim and sombre two rooms basement.

EAV is a 10 year old music project in Geneva putting on diverse kinds of quality electronic and non electronic musics. It’s curator and organizer Cobeia, has been deeply involved in the Geneva underground music & cultural scenes since 15 years. He’s living again in Berlin since 4 years after several long stays and visits to the city since 1999 and is now working as a DJ and promoter here as well.

VENA WARD (Berlin)

An enigmatic persona, musician and songwriter, indulging herself into litterature, poetry and films, she lives in Berlin since 2012, after having grown up in Geneva and lived in London. Playing on this night with a second guitarist, Vena Ward explores ethereal and meditative soundscapes through repetitive reversed guitar layers inhabited with haunted vocals.

BYRON REZA AFSHAR / AV SKARDI (BRU/T – Berlin)

Byron Reza Afshar was born In the States, raised in Geneva and lives in Berlin since 2009. His practice incorporates diverse interests and activities in the fields of language & linguistics, photography and fine art. Through a sensitivity to concepts and aesthetics paired with his uncompromisingly critical personality, Afshar’s musical compositions take on the form of a response to contemporary conditions of consumerist homogeneity. Drone driven, passionately minimalist and with a keen historical awareness of modern and experimental music forms, Byron Afshar channels these various stimuli into his sound performances and techno. Characteristics of his musical productions include multiple repetitions, the use of electronic cello, 4/4, hi-hats, reverbs, echo, and delays. An aesthetics of obsession comes to color his sonic practice, translating into DJ sets that favor acceleration: high speeds that maintain intensity without dealing violence. EBM, techno (deep, acid, contemporary as well as old-school), house, new beat, and rave are registers he moves through and between, juggling what has preceded him with an awareness of today’s current approaches. In the past two years he has curated the monthly Thursday night BRU/T techno party at Schwuz.

DANIELE COSMO (Lux Records – Zurich)

Daniele Cosmo comes from Italy but lives for many years in Zurich.
