La Muerte Roja - Hekate #282

For this collective sound video screening night, La Muerte Roja will present for the first time “Hekate”. A new composition which will score, live, “7 5 12 -- M8”, a short movie projected in loop. The interference of the music ambiance within the slow and continuous repetition of the peripheral, liminal urbanscape of Berlin – Lichtenberg - will produce a different episteme of its anthropological and symbolic facts.

Opening up new perspectives on its identity. La Muerte Roja, a tonal atonal drone improv open ensemble, based in Berlin since 2012, will be formed for this evening by: Fabio Campagna, Sabine Mittermeir, Bianca Ringwald and Angel Sanchez Cervera.

Anyone interested in generative music and the use of computing skills for sonic expression is welcome, no matter if a complete beginner or an expert. Please bring a computer to experiment with and learn about sound programming. All sound coding environments are welcome - e.g. PureData, SuperCollider, Max/MSP, CSound, ChucK, etc. If you don't have one yet, our welcome guide will help you getting started.

Monthly program

SPEKTRUM co-organises a wide variety of media-focused events throughout the week, both guesting external collaboration as well as showcasing the work that has been realised in the communities running at our space, to open up the knowledge gained to a wider audience. Types of events include:

Live acts (audiovisual, sound art, dance, performance): During three weeks of every month we organise live acts - dance, audiovisual and sonic performances - where transdisciplinary approaches between hybrid genres and technological platforms such as programming, self-built instruments, body contortions, sensors and analogical artifacts are recombined in order to show original works.

Screenings: Our program includes nights for screenings of works from the fields of experimental video and documentaries, for which we offer an event room with a 5 meter high ceiling and a large screen (4m by 2.30m), especially well-suited for cinematic projections.

Solidarity: We are open to host events aimed at social causes. We are interested in working together with communities in areas such as health, body (dis)abilities, food/nutrition, open data, politics and urbanism.

Feel free to contact us if you are interested in organising events at SPEKTRUM, or check our latest Open call.
