Events 2020


10th October

CD-release concert in the Werkhalle of Silento’s album Piedra y camino with an exhibition of the illustrations that are part of the new album.


9th October

P600, the music project, utilises factors related to research into event-related potential (ERP) as a premise to create conceptual and graphic scores for music/sound. Consisting of three musicians and one sound director, P600 experiments with a range of acoustic, electro-acoustic, and acousmatic sound. Each musician acts as an independent sound source, but also sends an audio signal to a main mixer. The sound director manipulates and spatializes their sounds, via the mixer and quadraphonic loudspeakers, according to a score. This is equally inspired by Dub Reggae producers and Stockhausen, in that the mixer becomes an instrument.

P600 are: Luca Marini (drums), Klaus Janek (contrabass/electronics), William “Bilwa” Costa (electronics/objects), and Nicolas Wiese (sound direction/mixer/feedback)

Strings and Movement

Tatsumi Ryusui: electric guitar, electronics
Adam Goodwin: Double bass
Keisuke Sugawara: Movement
Tatsumi Ryusui and Adam Goodwin have worked together on musical projects over the past seven years, both as a duo and in their former band Elmer Kussiac. Musically, they create a floating web of atmospheric textures and hypnotic drones, which feels more like a newly embodied universe than a musical composition.
Tatsumi Ryusui and dancer Keisuke Sugawara have also worked together continuously over the past few years, mixing Sugawara’s fluid and sometimes restless movements with Ryusui’s dreamlike soundscapes.
Now these three forces are coming together for the first time as a trio, combining their unique approaches to sound and movement into a coherent, multi-sensory spectacle.
