Tonight: Jacob Kirkegaard at LEAP Berlin +Lafidki and Alpha Couple live+opening of a pleasure “radio” dome by DuChamp

Upcoming events in the land of milk and honey…(you were missing it, isn’t?)

[#] Danish sound artist Jacob Kirkegaard presents in LEAP Berlin his new sound installation called “Pivot”, created from video and sound recordings from Alexanderplatz’s tv tower (Fernsehturm). Jacob Kirkegaard was granted a special permit to access the machinery that keeps the globe in its constant pivoting motion. Using vibration sensors, he recorded the sounds emerging from the heavy mechanical engineering – a striking contrast to the slowly and silently revolving look-out above. For the installation at LEAP video is projected onto a curved white canvas that stretches from floor to ceiling. The curved canvas reflects the shape of the Fernsehturm’s dome and panoramic view of Berlin revealing a view of the city as seen from within the dome. Simultaneously the view from Leap’s windows reveals an up close sight of the colossal landmark, allowing for a double perspective of the city to take place.

 Jacob Kirkegaard is a Danish artist who focuses on the scientific and aesthetic aspects of resonance, time, sound and hearing. His installations, compositions and performances deal with acoustic spaces and phenomena that usually remain imperceptible. Using unorthodox recording tools, including accelerometers, hydrophones and home-built electromagnetic receivers, Kirkegaard captures and contextualizes hitherto unheard sounds from within a variety of environments: a geyser, a sand dune, a nuclear power plant, an empty room, a TV tower, and even sounds from the human inner ear itself. Based in Berlin, Kirkegaard is a graduate of the Academy for Media Arts in Cologne, Germany. Since 1995, Kirkegaard has presented his works at exhibitions and at festivals and conferences throughout the world. He has released five albums (mostly on the British label Touch) and is a member of the sound art collective freq_out.

[#] Alpha Couple (CA) and Lafidki(CA) live in Loophole!
Canadian duo Alpha Couple — former gallery owners Kristel Jax and Mark Wohlgemuth — craft kaleidoscopic sound collages comprised of textural instrumentation and found soundbites. At once conceptual and emotionally raw, Alpha Couple’s compositions are haunting in their ability to communicate ineffable psychic states.
Lafidki makes “Spacy winter lo-fi maximalism hymns and impatient post-pop.” from Avant-Avant
