UK-based imprint and publisher Touch celebrates forty years of activity with a specially conceived concert that features longtime collaborators as well as artists that consistently expand the experimental music’s sonic terrain.

With longstanding interests in transcending conventional instrumental approaches, Oren Ambarchi’s immersive ambient explorations are punctuated by collaborator and sound artist crys cole, who re-tunes the ear with subtle and imperfect sounds created through haptic gestures and seemingly mundane materials. Youmna Saba is currently focused on the interrelationship of traditional Arabic music and electronic and electroacoustic treatments. An attentive and (com)passionate listener of the world around him, Budhaditya Chattopadhyay inquires into the materiality, objecthood, site, and technological mediation of lived experiences, and considers the aspects of subjectivity, contemplation, mindfulness, and transcendence inherent in listening. In her rich, ambient drone soundscapes that explore the complexity of the human psyche, Ipek Görgün balances technical precision and emotional potency to spin fine-tuned sounds that stay resistant to blur no matter how thick her mix becomes.

Monday, January 31
Start: 6pm
