Andrea Belfi performs his solo set with drums and synthesizer at FEED, in Berlin, inside the KW.
He will play a selection from his latest album Natura Morta, the electro-acoustic equivalent of an artist’s skill capturing the light beaming on a vacant chair. Following the intermission, Thomas Ankersmit will perform his solo electronic work, shifting a captive audience between the controlled formation of music and a sonic world of chaos.
ANDREA BELFI “Natura Morta”
Electroacoustic Performance, 35min
Natura Morta, “dead nature” or “still life”. This album can be understood as a powerful study of the minute details of the art of electro-acoustic composition. Layers of drums and percussions intertwine with synth waves making the portrait come to life, detail after detail, until a complex figure emerges from the white canvas. The constant, unsteady sounds, wavering noise, swirling cymbals, and distant feedback gently pull the listener into the picture, letting them enjoy every detail of this beautifully staged compositions.His latest work mixes influences from both Italian minimalism and the electro-acoustic contemporary scene. Somewhere in between the electronics of Keith Fullerton Whitman, the percussive repetitions of Jon Mueller, and the atmospheric sensibility of Pan-American.
This will be the two year anniversary of the FEED Frequencies program at KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Berlin.
