#0163ARTatBerlin | During its ongoing renovation, the KINDL – Center for Contemporary Art has invited the project space Quiet Cue from the surrounding Neukölln neighborhood “Flughafen-Kiez” to produce three nights of programming (5th, 12th, 19th September 2015) for the impressive Boiler House. For the last six years, Quiet Cue has produced an internationally acclaimed program of music, sound, performance, and intermedia.
On three successive Saturdays in September, artists from twelve countries will present a program that was developed especially for the acoustic and atmospheric idiosyncracies of the Boiler House with its 20-meter high ceiling. Performances in the space ranging from compositions based on language, musique concrète, and multi-channel electronics will activate the space as both instrument and resonant body. The public is invited to move around and explore the sound installations through proximity and distance. Meanwhile, the performances in the space will also be staged at various different places.
The program itself spans a broad spectrum of epochs, traversing from contemporary compositions to Bach and moving from the material music pioneers of the twentieth century such as James Tenney and Alvin Lucier on to contemporaries including Phill Niblock (b. 1933), Christian Kesten (b. 1966), and Mike Majkowski (b. 1983).
Quiet Cue at KINDL is curated by Michael Renkel and Nicolas Wiese.
Supported by: Österreichisches Kulturforum Berlin, Bundeskanzleramt Österreich, Klangzeitort, TanzHotel, Theaterhaus Berlin Mitte.
