The two composer-performers Andrea Ermke and Burkhard Beins have been working together for two decades now, namely in the electro-acoustic groups Cox Orange with Jim Denley (sax, flutes) and Ignaz Schick (turntables) and Tree with Chris Abrahams (dx7), pianist of The Necks. In their duo the two Berlin-based musicians create experimental soundscapes full of bewildering complexity and beauty. An additional musician of the evening is Matěj Šenkyřík, who will present his new composition for clarinet and electronics.
A composer/performer of experimental music, he is known for his definitive use of percussion in combination with selected sound objects. In addition, he works with live-electronics/analog synthesizers and has conceived several sound installations. More about the artist here.
Andrea Ermke is a musician living in Berlin who works with samples and field recordings that she replays from minidisc. She is a member of groups such as Sink (with Chris Abrahmas, Arthur Rother and Marcello Busato) and Tree (with Burkhard Beins and Chris Abrahams).
Matěj Šenkyřík composes his music in tension between electronic sound, field recordings and acoustic instruments, especially the clarinet. Apart from his solo work he is also part of open live-coding group Kolektiv.
