Anti-Spatial

Interactive Installation by Rahul Sharma

(Curated by Shokoufeh Eftekhar)
 
Kotti-Shop: 20:00-23:00
 
When we talk about a city space and the experience of a human in that context, it is not only mediated by the city streets, the parks, playgrounds, the transport stations, the common service areas, and the cultural city centers, there are different media attentions and applications that come into focus, the use of smartphones or smart devices in such places plays an important role in how a person perceives a space. This project explores the potential to perceive the invisible multi-substance of data that permeates our world by collecting data from the Twitter API in real-time and investigating how data from a place can reflect and define its urban narrative.
 
Anti-Spatial is an interactive installation where the visitor can move through a representation of a city constituted of computer-generated, three-dimensional point data. The interface gives the viewer interactive control over the direction and speed of the travel. The physical effort of moving in the real world is gratuitously transposed into a virtual environment, creating kinesthetic conjunction of the active body in the virtual domain.

#Stellan Veloce is a Berlin-based Sardinian composer and cellist. Their music focuses on timbres, repetition and sound densities, integrating composition with improvisation and band playing practices. Their traditional music background is a constant subliminal inspiration for their work. Veloce studied cello at the conservatory of Cagliari and composition at the Universität der Künste Berlin and at the California Institute of the Arts. Veloce’s first LP release “Complesso Spettro”, coming out for Hyperdelia in 2022, includes 2 long ensemble pieces which act as a bridge between the different souls that inhabit Veloce’s artistic research, experimental rock and contemporary music.

#Kei Watanabe (Sri Lanka/Japan) performs ghostly mystifying and electrifying improvisations of found instruments, shuffling loops and odd occurrences. A minimal combination of voice, bells, stringed instruments and electric hums.

16/07/2022_ PERFECT IMMORTAL MACHINE_Record Release from Valentina Berthelon

16/07/2022_19:00 h

PERFECT IMMORTAL MACHINE_Record Release from Valentina Berthelon

 

_The album was recorded by Valentina at her home studio in Berlin and mixed at Non Standard Studios by Tobias Freund.

PERFECT IMMORTAL MACHINE

S/he is a glitch of the neoliberal era of information, a hybrid body
that enjoys the blurring of boundaries, the opportunity to shape
identities in new ways and to form alliances.
S/he is an upgrade or enhancement of possibilities, a new body
condition of total fluidity and porosity, pure flexibility.
For such a body it makes no difference on which side of the system
it is positioned.
S/he is a user and a system operator at the same time, a timeless
space, a vastness like a Matrix and a place of resistance.
S/he refuses to be categorized and demands.
Her/his right to range, experiment and try on different selves.

Valentina Berthelon, known for her visual work as a media artist on projects like Recent Arts produced her first full-length album. Expressing herself as a sound artist is a new territory for Valentina. Her experience as a DJ gave her a special kind of rhythmical understanding but her love of experimental music led her to this production of vocal collages combined with a rhythm corset and harmonic layers.

#Zeynep Sarikartal (1985, Ankara) is a sound-artist, improviser and researcher. ZS ZS live performances are about exploring and merging harsh, rhythmical and atmospheric soundscapes together with text and field recordings within a dramaturgical concept. ZS ZS invents rules, uses short stories and fragments of news for each performance and defines specific technical limitations for each show. zszszszszszszs.wordpress.com/

# Performed with sewing machines turned into noise boxes, Agente Costura’s improvisations are based on stitching and mending. The repetitiveness of an amplified machine is layered with melodic features of self made wearable electronic instruments, combined within a thrilling visual performance. Lisa Simpson plays solo and in different constellations of artists, musicians, dancers, and curious audiences. https://agentecostura.art/

#Melissa Dullius and Gustavo Jahn form DISTRUKTUR. https://distruktur.com/
Distruktur’s work takes shape as films, installations, film performances, photography, text and graphic.

END OF STORY live #003: Novo Line + Estelle Quarino


For Kotti-Shop, Novo Line(Berlin) and performer/visual artist Estelle Quarino (Geneva) present a sound-movement collaboration, uniting the Novo Line Prime* project with Quarino’s own sound-movement persona**  
 Piezo sensors within a bespoke latex bodysuit are manipulated by Quarino’s movements and transformed immediately to MIDI information in the Novo Line universe; transposed, transformed, and recapitulated with live effects. This feedback loop creates a living circuit connecting movement and sound, fostering an environment of indirect control of each performer’s own intuited process.

*Novo Line Prime is a performatory experiment exploring the extinct art of cassette tape-sync, allowing pre-recorded sounds to sync with live instrumentation. The recordings allow the classic Novo Line studio sounds and a more varied complexity to be delivered on 2- and 4-track cassette via tape collage. The approach shares the obtuse poly-ostinato and intuitive unplanned ethos of our pre-pandemic world Novo Line with a new sensitivity, directed towards saturated textures, ambient feelings, and aperitivi.

**Estelle Quarino, perfomer / visuel artist / special effect makeup artist and props maker for film and theater –  Explores the creative process using different artistic disciplines with the aim of assembling various project perspectives related to the body in space, inspired by different dance techniques such as butoh and classical dance allowing to incorporate strange gesture, sculptural material, sound, texture, sensory and emotions.

EndOfStory: Logs #1

Date: 26+27/06/21_21:30h

In order to celebrate our first release on end of story we are pleasedto have logs playing @kotti-shop from their studio in moscow on saturday. Expect an intimate live improvisation set accompanied by beautiful collages provided by Yuri Gohubev. All this will be presented in the Kotti-shop window starting at 21:30h.
 
Logs is a free improvisation band from moscow founded by daria zvezdina and andrey guryanov in 2019. Logs is a self-evolving multilayered situationgrounded in music but also incorporating other forms of expression. Their first album ‘Eight’ was created by editing, trimming and juxtaposing two improvised live sets. It mimics a pop album with its narrative structure and focus on songs while preserving logs original musical language. Vocal pieces were initially embroidered in the raw feedof the livesets and then excavated from them. Still they appear on the album on their own as its translation and consequence.
 
Logs – eight is now available as download, cassette or limited edition USB-Sculpture here:
 
This is an open air event open to everyone. Please follow all the necessary pandemic precautions, you know the drill…
