LABOR SONOR Labor Sonor—a platform for new experimental music, film and performance Labor Sonor is a monthly series of concerts, performances, and video, now curated by Fernanda Farah, Christian Kesten, Andrea Neumann, Arthur Rother, and Derek Shirley in a small venue called Kunsthaus KuLe in the center of Berlin.

Labor Sonor has become a meeting point for the vibrant and innovative music community in Berlin. It is one of the platforms for the echtzeitmusik-scene. echtzeitmusik means the field of ‘experimental’ music bordering new music, electro-acoustic improvisation, trash pop, avantgarde rock, noise, sound art, performance art, or electronica.

Labor Sonor

Tonight Ignaz Schick will present the Berlin version of his audio-installation "Ghost/Vibrations" at Kule! The installation will be set up in the theater room of the venue and Ignaz will perform on his installation as well!

"Ghost/Vibrations" is an 8 channel audio installation, with 8 speakers, connected to nylon strings - High- and low-frequency pitches set the speaker membranes and nylon threads vibrating. On the nylon threads and on the membranes are found objects referring to the venue and city in which the work is shown, which are also set in vibration and make each speaker object sound different.

The picture was taken by Schick, when he presented "Ghost/Vibrations" at his exhibition "The Theory of Everything" at Liebig12 in 2021.

Make sure to check our hygiene concept on our website.

The event will be held under 2G+ rules.

Besides his own work as a musician and artist Ignaz also runs the label "Zarek". The label started as a channel to release Schick's own output, but quickly evolved into a platform for the Berlin "Echtzeitmusik" scene and features by now more than 30 releases.

In 2021 the label was featured Initiative Neue Musik Berlin / field notes magazine and we recommend a deep dive into the labels catalog via its Bandcamp page.

Happy New Year – a bit belated, but we hope you had a great start into 2022! As you might know we had to cancel Ignaz Schick's installation at Kunsthaus Kule that we planned for our December installment in 2021 - and we are more than happy we can now present "Ghost/Vibration" on the Monday the 10th of January.

In this Berlin version of his Ghost/Vibration series, Ignaz Schick will position eight loudspeakers in the theatre room of KuLe, which are connected to the ceiling by nylon threads. High- and low-frequency pitches set the speaker membranes and nylon threads vibrating. On the nylon threads and on the membranes are found objects referring to the venue and city in which the work is shown, which are also set in vibration and make each speaker object sound different.

Save the date! Event will follow!

Unfortunately we have to announce that Ignaz Schick won’t be able to play tonight. On short notice we decided to close the year not only with Yara Mekawei’s audio-visual performance – “658” Listen to the Holy text“ – but also with a LABOR SONOR „All Stars“ concert.

Fernanda Farah, Christian Kesten, Andrea Neumann, Arthur Rother and Derek Shirley will close our season at Kunsthaus KuLe – as a band, or as five solo performers, expect the unexpected, everything from Noise to Christmas Carols and all the in betweens.

Yara Mekawei is a multi- context / multi- media artist, a prolific artist and scholar – and more.

Mekawei‘s sonic bricolages draw inspiration from the dynamic flow of urban centers and the key infrastructure of cities. She is interested in the philosophy of architecture, social history, and philosophical literature. Mekawei implemented the optical transaction from the musical conversation and transferred the sound waves to visual forms.

For our last LABOR SONOR concert series Mekawei will present her audiovisual installation – “658” Listen to the Holy text – at Kunsthaus KuLe. This electronic music project is based on the hidden influential figures in Sufi history whose stories are mentioned in heavenly books. By transferring the text to numbers and composing the sound based on it. By working on history, the project is bringing the analog rhythm of the past to the digital
waves of the present.

Ignaz Schick is an active member of the Berlin "Echtzeitmusik" scene since many years and never fails to bring fresh ideas and concepts into the spaces he is performing in.

In 2021 Ignaz presented a larger selection of his visual work including graphic scores, vinyl objects and sound installations in Berlin at Liebig12, titled "The Theory Of Everything".

The exhibition had four chapters and its second was titled "Ghost/Vibrations" – a sound installation using nylon strings and speaker membranes, which will be set into vibrations. For LABOR SONOR Schick will adapt his installation for the bar space of KuLe.

Sometimes an artist describes himself better than anyone else could and why not quote straight from their press-release? Radu Malfatti is an austrian trombone an bass-harmonica player and part of the quartet "does sound have a shadow" which will perform next Monday at our LABOR SONOR concert series at Kunsthaus Kule.

His career in his own words: "1965-70 looked for the Academy of Music Graz,
studied with Eje Thelin, spoke with Sonny Rollins, drank coffee with Luigi Nono,
likes to play tennis with Doris, read a lot, forgot everything."

We are very much looking forward to have Radu round at Kule!

DOES SOUND HAVE A SHADOW? Klaus Filip & Christian Kobi & Jonas Kocher & Radu Malfatti // LABOR SONOR // the interview series

Back in 2020 we started the LABOR SONOR interview series. In January 2021 Christian Kesten did an interview with the quartet "does sound have a shadow" about their performance practice, their techniques and the unique approach of this very special band.

After the interview the video features a recording of Radu Malfatti's composition "otonokage", performed by the quartet.

Urutau, Mother of the Moon is a live-played audiovisual installation made of tree leaves, feathers and a bicycle wheel.

The installation is built using found materials, carefully collected by myself in different woods and cities. It is a nocturnal fabulation around the bird Urutau (Potoo) also known as "Ghost Bird".

Found in the deep forests and urban spaces of South America, but rarely seen because of its wondrously artful camouflage, the bird is most famous for singing: a nocturnal,mysterious, haunting chant, often interpreted as jinx and feared. Through the potentialities of sound, images and of my own body, I re-imagine the female body, and the animal body, open to possibilities beyond places of curse, punishment and violence

Marina Cyrino is a Brazilian flutist and sound artist currently living in Berlin. She works across the fields of improvisation, composition, instrument building, video and performance art. She holds a PhD in Music Performance and Interpretation from the University of Gothenburg, Sweden.

Marina will perform live on Urutau next Monday, 15th of November at our LABOR SONOR concert series at Kule.

does sound have a shadow? is not just another quartet, this is (possibly) one of the most interesting new groups on this planet.

far from moving along wellknown paths, this group is concentrating on a calm and quiet music, not trying to make sounds more interesting than they are by themselves. leaving the obvious virtuosity behind, they rather concentrate on the hidden virtuosity, turning every concert into an unheard experience.

TR140 - Phil Minton - 'Woke Up At Eight' [excerpt]

There is no arguing that Phil Minton is an exceptional artist and vocalist. The sounds Minton is able to create solely with his voice never miss to leave the audience stunned and one can't really find any comparison. We are happy to be a part of the "Phil Minton Week" with concerts at Sowieso, KM28, West Germany and more.

On Monday Minton will perform a duo with Audrey Chen at Kunsthaus KuLe - save the date, October 25th 2021.

As well as Julia Eckhardt - who will perform a viola solo on the 25th of October - Minton contributed to the 2020 campaign of London's Café OTO, with his piece "Woke Up At Eight".
