LIGNIN’ + guests + live-painting


Or Solomon – piano & electronics | f:rar – modular synths
Guests: Adam Goodwin – double bass | Gábor Hartyáni – cello | Chatschatur Kanajan – violin
Or Solomon (Israel) and f:rar (Turkey) – met in Berlin in 2018. The two musicians have instinctively started their recorded improvisations, crossing freely all boundaries of aesthetics, from minimal instant compositions to high edge sound spectre.
LIGNIN’ melt distinctive personal experiences into imaginary hymns and interleaved sound poetry, exploring their multi sensorial music vessel as a cinematic time-travel machine, constructing a story-telling in constant transformation.
Thriving from the ebullient scene of European experimental music, LIGNIN’ sees its evolution as a platform for interaction with other musicians and artists from different artistic disciplines.
LIVE–PAINTING by Thomas bo Henriksson.



SUBSYSTEM are low-frequency specialists. Imaginative, shrewd and virtuosic, the two musicians from Berlin explore the possibilities of baritone saxophone and double bass.

Almut Schlichting and Sven Hinse have been playing together in various bands for 20 years, 10 of them in the duo Subsystem. The result is a somnambulistic certainty in their interplay, which is impressively audible in the dialogue of the two deep instruments in the concerts and on the two CDs “Unterholz” (2016) and “Schneekönig” (2019)

“An exciting journey of discovery into the world of low tones.”
Rainer Bratfisch, Jazz Podium

Music Triple Bill


A shortened version of the original:
choreography, dance: Katherine Leung | music, composition: Petros Tzekos
Shown at the Soundance Festival Berlin 2021
CODE uses dance and sound as a foundation to create a new sensory language. The collaboration between Katherine Leung and percussionist Petros Tzekos is inspired by Morse code. The basis of the piece explores the evolution of language from its simplest forms ‘action’ to ‘reaction’, which goes hand in hand with the theme of censorship and reflects the original characteristics of Morse code.

Choreography, dance: Imola Nagy | music: Mirjam-Luise Münzel
GESTI (Ital. gestures) is based on the work of the same name by Luciano Berio for alto or tenor flute solo (1966). A dialogue performance develops between the flutist Mirjam-Luise Münzel, who interprets the work from memory, and the dancer Imola Nagy, which both artists develop hand in hand. The musical gestures of the piece are given a physical level of expression, the dancer becomes the second self of the musician and vice versa.

Ensemble Illtupia+
Dance: Camilla Oebel, Islam Elnebishy | baroque cello: Majella Münz

ATEM 1 & 2

04.09.21 | 17.09.2021

A project from Josefine Andronic

A T E M is my new project. The focus is on music and breath amplified by microphones and effects, underpinned by predominantly electronic beats and sounds, but also performed with the help of analogue instruments such as violin, vibraphone, theremin and other synthesizers. The music is supported by video installations and the physical expression of a performance artist.

Participating artists so far are: Josefine Andronic (voice, violin, theremin) Jim Anders (sound design, syntheziser) Carolin Jüngst (performance) Sascha Herrmann (video installation) Philip Andronic (vibraphone)
