Picnic concert with headphones
Doors: 6 pm
Start: 7 pm (Ale Hop 7 pm, Nguyễn + Transitory 8 pm)
In front of the old building of silent green, a green lawn invites you to linger. It's the perfect setting for a nice picnic and a great stage for wonderful musicians who can't wait to finally play live again. We will provide you with high-quality headphones and a picnic package, you bring cushions and blankets - and together we will finally enjoy a concert at silent green again.
Nguyen + Transitory
Nguyễn + Transitory consists of Nguyễn Baly and Tara Transitory. Their work crosses the disciplines of sound, performance and installation. Working primarily with modular synthesizers and analogue tape, they seek to approach sound, synthesis, noise, rhythm and performance from a less colonial angle - exploring how frequencies, the physicality of sound production and its random vibrations relate to cognitive memories, stored emotions and catharsis. Their practice also involves efforts to empirically learn more about various Southeast Asian and diaspora queer existences and lost histories.
Alejandra Cardenas (aka Ale Hop, b. Lima, Peru) is a Berlin-based artist, researcher, and experimental instrumentalist from Peru. She composes electronic and electroacoustic music, by blending strains of noise, pop, avant-garde, ambient and a complex repertoire of extended techniques for electric guitar and real-time sampling devices which she uses as her sound vocabulary to craft a performance of astonishing physical intensity, saturated of layers of distortion and stunning atmospheres.
