Closing Event

The evening programme focuses on the artists Crys Cole, Arnold Dreyblatt and Phillip Sollmann who are active in Berlin as well as internationally and whose musical activities has never been presented before at the Akademie der Künste.

In responding conceptually to the exhibition theme of “nothing-to-see-ness”, the live performers interface electronic, acoustic, haptic and perceptual audio processes while referencing their diverse musical biographies in an evening of exploratory sonic imaginations.

  2. Arnold Dreyblatt – “Blockage”
    Arnold Dreyblatt: Electronics
    Phillip Sollmann: Turntables and Signal
    Processing “… you had to fight through that sound barrier, quite literally, in order to pull out remnants of a remembered sound.” –
    Glenn Gould, Rolling Stone Interview, 1974
  3. Phillip Sollmann – “something is missing”
