Sven-Åke Johansson, Inkonst, Black Box, 21:00
Sven-Åke Johansson is an eminent composer and musician, poet and visual artist, writer and initiator of numerous music and performance art productions. Being a major stylistic forerunner within improvisational music, Johansson developed a European form of free jazz in the 1960s. Over the years, he has worked with many renowned musicians within the field of experimental and avant-garde music; Peter Brötzmann, Alexander von Schlippenbach and Sonic Youth being some of them. Johansson is especially known for working with unusual but at the same time everyday objects as sources for compositions, such as tractors or fire extinguishers. At Intonal, however, he’ll be focusing on cardboard boxes: The aphonic, noiseful sound of the variously-sized surfaces of the casually placed, everyday, silent assortment of corrugated cardboard boxes which would otherwise be earmarked for destruction.
Ghédalia Tazartès, Inkonst, Black Box, 23:00
French cult artist Ghédalia Tazartès is an uncompromising character who defies categorization. He alone has recorded almost 20 albums since the late 70s, calling his way of working impromuz for lack of a better term. Tazartès’ music has always been a mystery.
It’s coherent but constantly in flux: It switches from musique concrète to – existing or invented – ethnic music, from poetry to noise, or from loops and collages to sad and extremely beautiful tunes in a second. Electronic Beats called Tazartès “A sonic Renaissance man and a musical nomad who freely transgresses various aural topographies”, and we can only agree. After celebrated appearances at CTM in 2013 and Unsound in 2015, we’re proud to present Ghédalia Tazartès’ solo show at Intonal this year.
C, Inkonst, Black Box, 21:00
C was formed by F#X/E.K.G. and Nika Son in late 2014 when they were given the chance to create an electro-acoustic space in a gallery room in Hamburg. Continuously working together since, they compose musical sculptures and collages that are not easily pigeon- holed. They use a wide variety of analogue sound generators, from tape-machines, filters, self-made physical resonators, synthesizers, drum machines as well as the human voice. During the process of development, almost every element undergoes several stages of deformation, inventing denatured structures and spaces that can soothe and disturb at the same time. C’s first EP Tenno was released in autumn 2016 on the Hamburg based label VIS.
