silent green presents

+++ Due to the weather conditions, the concert will take place indoor at Betonhalle +++

Open air concert with headphones
The large lawn in front of silent green's old building offers the perfect backdrop for a picnic in the countryside and a stage for some great musicians. We will provide you with high-quality headphones, MARS I Café & Bar offers drinks and snacks, you bring your own cushions and blankets and together we will enjoy an open-air concert in the summer evening atmosphere.

Ulla (Ulla Straus) is an artist by ways from Kansas and California, but currently based in Philadelphia. She has released music on an array of labels such as Quiet Time, Experiences Ltd, West Mineral Ltd, and her most recent record Limitless Frame on Motion Ward. In 2020, Ulla released her critically acclaimed Tumbling Towards A Wall which has received praise as one of the best albums of 2020 from Resident Advisor, Pitchfork, Washington Post, and Bandcamp. Ulla has also collaborated with a number of other artists including Perila, Pontiac Streator, Exael, and Ben Bondy.

Jan Jelinek
Jan Jelinek’s works translate popular music sources into abstract textures. Rather than using traditional instruments, he constructs collages out of tiny sound particles. Since 2000, he has released material under both his own name and various pseudonyms (Ursula Bogner, G.E.S., Gramm, Farben, The Exposures). His many collaborations include projects with Sven-Åke Johansson and Masayoshi Fujita. In 2007, together with Hanno Leichtmann and Andrew Pekler, he founded the improvisation trio Groupshow, and in 2008 he established the Faitiche label as a publishing platform for his own experiments, for collaborations, and for works by musician friends. Since 2012, he has been writing and producing experimental radio plays that explore fictional identities and soundscapes. In his current live performances, Jan Jelinek weaves diverse sound materials into intense collages.
