Tomorrow! Aquarium is an audiovisual Berlin based duo.
They work with a modular system that allows
communication between sound and video.

Aquarium combines circuit bent video and audio
equipment with traditional synthesizers in order to
produce partially synchronous trippy A/V glitches,
psychedelic drones and quirky beats.

They upcycle vintage music and film equipment and add
CV inputs and new controls like body contacts. Which
both helps avoiding amount of waste and elaborating
the individual characteristics of their work.

The duo consists of video restorer Kathrin Schreier
and noise musician Andreas Stoiber who is commonly
known for constructing the walking, talking AI "Krach
der Roboter" that performed at festivals such as Bent!,
Roboexotica, Circuit Control and Elevate.

Aquarium performed at Berlin Modular Society Spectrum,
re:composed, Sho###Bo###, VJ Open Lab and Music for Cinemas.

Can you hear the Earth breathing?

‘Can you hear the Earth breathing?’ brings to life sustainability cycles and the natural (and un-natural) systems that lie beneath the production and absorption of carbon dioxide. In the 1950s, Charles Keeling started measuring CO2 concentrations in the atmosphere at the Moana Loa Observatory. These measurements showed for the first time how the planet itself is breathing as forests in the Northern hemisphere grow leaves in the Spring absorbing CO2, then release it back into the atmosphere in the Fall when leaves drop off the trees. This project integrates music65, sound art, dance, and sustainability into an artistic performance that communicates the complex systems that are part of climate change, challenges the primacy of human-centred approaches to sustainability, and makes audible (and visible) the Earth’s breath.

The performance includes sonified data representing different elements of the CO2 system, field recordings, and live sounds captured during the performance. Sounds are performed with modular synthesizers, samplers, biofeedback pads connected to plants, FX pedals, and looping feedback. Wireless microphones capture the sound of the dancer’s breath and biofeedback pads send pitch and gates to synthesizers that vary based on the electrical resistance of the dancer’s skin as they move through the performance space. Sound and music shape the dance; the dance shapes the music and sound playing with the “in-betweens” and creating a cohesive whole.

Katharina Bévand is a sound artist based in Berlin. She creates site-specific sound installations, sound sculptures, 3-D sound environments and performs on modular synthesizers. In 2017 she was honored by “bonn hoeren – sonotopia” of the Beethoven Foundation for Arts and Culture Bonn. In 2021 she was part of Goldrausch Project for women artists. She received various grants, among which are the Berlin Senate, Stiftung Kunstfonds or Musikfonds. In 2022 she directed the first sound art oriented artist residency Cráter in La Palma, Canary Islands funded by the GOETHE Institute. She exhibited internationally in Germany, Spain, Egypt, Taiwan, and in the Autonomous Region of Kurdistan in Northern Iraq. Her collaborations oscillate between the fine arts scene and the experimental and electronic music field. This year she is part of Braunschweig Projects.

Katharina Bévand ist eine in Berlin lebende Klangkünstlerin. Sie schafft ortsspezifische Klanginstallationen und Klangskulpturen und spielt auf modularen Synthesizern. Besonders interessiert sie sich für die Resonanz von Räumen und Objekten. In den letzten Jahren erhielt sie zahlreiche Stipendien und war Teil des Goldrausch-Projekts für Künstlerinnen. 2017 wurde sie von "bonn hoeren - sonotopia" der Beethovenstiftung für Kunst und Kultur Bonn ausgezeichnet. Sie stellt und performt international in Deutschland, Ägypten, Taiwan, Spanien, Finnland und in der Autonomen Region Kurdistan im Nordirak. In 2022 organisierte sie Cráter, eine Künstlerresidenz auf den Kanaren, und unterrichtet an der Berlin School of Sound in Berlin. In 2023 erhält sie ein Stipendium von Braunschweig Projects.

Aus Sicht der Clubcommission stellt der Ausbau der Stadtautobahn ein absurdes Vorhaben dar. Der Bauabschnitt 17 zerstört über Jahrzehnte gewachsene kulturelle Freiräume, soziale Projekte und Kiezgemeinschaften in kaum absehbarer Tragweite. Zwar lässt die Feinplanung des geplanten Streckenverlaufs noch auf sich warten, es ist jedoch jetzt schon erkennbar, dass der Ausbau der A100 einen unwiederbringlichen Verlust an kultureller Vielfalt und Lebensqualität für Berlin bedeuten würde.
𝗡𝗮𝗰𝗵 𝗮𝗸𝘁𝘂𝗲𝗹𝗹𝗲𝗺 𝗞𝗲𝗻𝗻𝘁𝗻𝗶𝘀𝘀𝘁𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗱𝗲𝗿 𝗖𝗹𝘂𝗯𝗰𝗼𝗺𝗺𝗶𝘀𝘀𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝘀𝗶𝗻𝗱 𝗺𝗶𝗻𝗱𝗲𝘀𝘁𝗲𝗻𝘀 𝟮𝟭 𝗖𝗹𝘂𝗯𝘀 𝘂𝗻𝗱 𝗞𝘂𝗹𝘁𝘂𝗿𝗼𝗿𝘁𝗲 𝗯𝗲𝗱𝗿𝗼𝗵𝘁:
- Direkt an der Elsenbrücke wären Else, Club OST, Renate, der neu eröffnete Club M01 und die Bar Krass Böser Wolf betroffen.
- Die Kino- und Konzert-Location Zukunft, die nach Verlust ihrer Räumlichkeiten hinter die Renate gezogen ist, befindet sich auf einer für die A100 reservierten Vorhaltefläche.
- Südlich vom Ostkreuz müssten das ://about blank, die Bar und Konzert-Venue Zuckerzauber, die Raumerweiterungshalle sowie das Jugendhouse Elok dem Ausbau weichen.
- Beim S-Bahndreieck am Wiesenweg soll der Autobahntunnel, der am Ostkreuz beginnt, in bisher ungeklärter Form enden. Dort befinden sich die Clubs OXI und VOID Berlin sowie auch das Kulturkollektiv Wartenburg.
- Am Stadtpark Lichtenberg sind mit dem Kulturzentrum Villa Kuriosum, dem Wagenplatz Scheffelstraße und dem Jugendkulturzentrum Linse weitere Freiräume für Kunst und Kultur in ihrer Existenz gefährdet. Auch das Theater an der Parkaue könnte unter dem A100-Ausbau leiden.
- Neben zwei weiteren Wagenplätzen, dem Rummelplatz und Fips, befinden sich entlang des geplanten Bauabschnitts verschiedene soziale Einrichtungen wie die Notübernachtung am Containerbahnhof der Berliner Stadtmission, Kiezprojekte wie der Bürgergarten Laskerwiese oder auch die Carl-von-Linné-Schule für Körper- und Lernbehinderte, welche direkt am Ende des 17. Bauabschnitts und der vom Ausbau betroffenen Storkower Straße liegt.

Opening BMS26, Spectrum this THURSDAY will be Gong klonK!
——->>>>>
Operating an ear-shaped spaceship, Gong klonK crashed on Earth. Making people listen is the only way of repairing the ship. Somewhere between seismic friction and cultural observation Gong klonK tries to contribute to what we call music. Spend a listen and help a traveler.

soundcloud.com/gongklonk

David Borinski has been involved in electroacoustics since 2016, coming from a background of musician hood, musicology and music therapy. With "Gong klonK" he playfully embodies sonic exploration and self-reflectiveness through listening. More or less sound synthesis, field-recordings and also acoustical instruments are being used for this process. Carefully framed improvisation is vital to his performances, enabling present expression. Reduced tickets link in Bio or full price on the door!

For Berlin Modular Society’s first event at *ACUD MACHT NEU* - next *FRIDAY* 18th November, we are presenting a night of sound experimentation and atmospheres generated by unique hardware setups that will morph and phase from noise to cinematic soundscapes and between electro-acoustic drones and hypnotising down tempos with polyrhythms!

This evening, BMS24, forms part of a bi-weekly event series in which the Berlin Modular Society brings together not only an eclectic set of musicians and visual artists to share their performances, but also an engaged and diverse audience and community who appreciates sounds, visuals and modular synths from surprising corners of the creative universe.

live set tomorrow Fitzroy]

Mehmet Güren (b. Istanbul) is a multidisciplinary artist based in Berlin. He composes and produces music/sound design for visual media and performs modular synthesizer in numerous commissioned projects, including his experimental techno project Sudden Beach. Güren holds a Master's degree in Architectural Design from Istanbul Technical University and works on the interrelationship between performance space architecture and music performance. His sound work focuses on exploring data-driven textures, creating rhythmic mutations, and balancing seemingly incompatible influences through combining modular synthesis techniques with the samples - field recordings. Güren is also the founder of the multidisciplinary platform/label Postklub.
