Heavy Mental: Nadja – Sannhet – Sum of R

Swamp Booking and Urban Spree presents
Heavy Mental concert series : #2

Nadja is a duo of multi-instrumentalist Aidan Baker and bassist Leah Buckareff active since 2005 and credited as one of the progenitors of the genres ‘drone doom’ or ‘metalgaze’—heavy atmospheric music which combines the darkness and volume of doom metal and industrial with the textures and melodicism of shoegaze and ambient/electronic music.

The project has released numerous albums on many different underground labels—Alien8 Recordings, Daymare Records, Robotic Empire, Hydrahead Records, Gizeh Records, and Important Records, to name a few—and have toured extensively with appearances in Europe, Japan, Russia, Australia/New Zealand, North and South America, including appearances at such festivals as SXSW, FIMAV, Roadburn, Donaufest, Le Guess Who, Incubate, and Unsound.

Originally from Toronto, Canada, the duo now resides in Berlin, Germany.

Sannhet have always been hard to classify. Since 2010, the Brooklyn trio’s played instrumental music that’s heavy and light, cinematic and intimate, dense but minimal. You could call them “post” something, “experimental metal,” or “math rock,” but none of that’s quite right and the band has thrown another
wrinkle into the mix with So Numb.
While they don’t write lyrics, they do write subtexts. They pen love letters, extended epistles, and suicide notes, all without words. With So Numb, Sannhet create a new
world out of very few ingredients.
The cover of Sannhet’s third album, So Numb, features a mother shielding her son’s eyes with her hands – an allegory depicting the protection one receives from their parents, but it isn’t meant to be sentimental.
As the mother shelters her child, she inadvertently creates a false sense of safety. The child, in turn, spends it’s life seeking comfort and escape in temporary solutions.
Though Sannhet meditate on life’s imperfect escapes, So Numb’s nine songs showcase the band facing
life’s pain and joy with their eyes wide open. The collection’s emotional landscape is one of existential
dread, melancholy, and loss – ammunition for escapists. Despite these existential conundrums, So Numb
has an uplifting, euphoric feel.

Switzerland’s Sum Of R R exists since 2008 and was created by Reto Mäder (URAL UMBO, RM74) to construct/deconstruct sound in ways that infest and cloud the interior of the mind. Sum Of R creates slow moving instrumental music with a sensibility for hypnotic and complex song structures.
Their intense and pulsating sound is influenced by lumbering doom, drone, post-metal, ambient, noiserock, psychedelic and cinematic post-rock. Sum Of R’s ritualistic take on expanding sound layers is deepened by the rawness of an unconventional metal atmosphere plunged into darkness, light and its reflection.
Their live performances as a duo are characterized by a cyclical process involving bass guitars, drums, effects, samples and drones to create a unique and dense whole which is more than the sum of its parts.

Berlin Food Art Week: Dance Performance with InCorpo

12th July 2017 – 18:30h Urban Spree

InCorpo / Impro n. 4 – Eating or not eating (2017)

The dance improvisation performance belongs to a series of site specific performances that are taking place in public locations. “Impro n. 4 – Eating or not eating” has been commissioned by Entretempo Kitchen Gallery and is presented within the Berlin Food Art Week Festival 2017. Having the dance improvisation as a solid base, the performance is also characterised by the projection of recorded texts that will be directed in space through the dancers bodies. The texts are made of interviews: InCorpo brings to the public the Berliner citizens’ opinions and reflections about food and in particular about meat consumption. This subject brings together a wide variety of opposite ideas really debated nowadays. All these thoughts are expressed both in English and German. InCorpo’s interest about site specific performances comes from the belief that dance is a physical art form that can be accessible to everyone, finding inspirations and creative influences from the environment in which is presented.

InCorpo / Impro n. 4 – Eating or not eating (2017)
http://incorpo.org/artists/index.html
Concept and direction: Raffaella Galdi
Dancers: Laura Giuntoli and Marie Rechsteiner
Text-interviews: Berliner citizens

About InCorpo:
It is a receptive ground in which contemporary dance operates in relationship to other art-forms.
It has been established by Raffaella Galdi, who conceives and guides the activities and who is developing a dance methodology to share and pass on her experience and knowledge in dance.
InCorpo stands not only to promote and support the choreographic and dance-pedagogic work of its founder, but also collaborates on projects initiated by other artists. InCorpo nourishes a field on which artists, often dealing with different languages, get in contact and create together. InCorpo has an interdisciplinary and collaborative approach.
The name InCorpo (”into the body”) comes from the understanding that anything which is created and expressed comes into “embodiment” within a form, so it “takes a body”: from dance to plastic art, from video to painting or drawing, from music to writing or spoken language. Any creative act is an expression of the invisible, present everywhere and in each of us. It manifests itself within a body, however this form may be or appear.

Shooting exclusively on film, dánae uses photography as a political weapon and the internet as a platform for deterritorialising the segmentation of the public and private space, portraying her friends, lovers and herself in experimental practices in which new spheres of action and subjectivation are created through an exploration of intimacy and desire as a dynamic power that stimulates processes of transformation and reappropiation of the flows of gender.

Creating burlesque and sideshow spectacle performances that embody a variety of inspirations from many timeless fantasies of dangerously desirable women. Fulfilling a dream to runaway and join the circus. Our sideshow sweetheart has more tricks than just unveiling her beauty to command the imaginations of audiences. Exposing secrets separated between fine lines of pleasure and pain.
