Come over for a listen! 22.9.2020 we will present a emitter micro release alongside with Edition Telemark and Tochnit Aleph

Kupfer Bar (Kreuzberg)



The concept of KISSAs or Listening Bars is an old Japanese tradition. Since the 1930s, intimate cafes have been serving select records for the price of a coffee or whiskey, played on high quality sound systems. Following this concept, the Month of Contemporary Music presents select labels for experimental music in an immersive, deep listening experience.
The entrance is free.

Peter Cusack:
Aral Sea Stories: water uses and abuses, jackal magic, ice bells, perpetual motion, Dagira in thunder
Fifty years ago the Aral Sea in Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan, Central Asia, was the planet’s fourth largest lake. In the decades since it has virtually disappeared; a victim of disastrous irrigation schemes that divert much of the water from its feeder rivers planned during Soviet times. Today Kazakhstan is making a surprisingly successful attempt to restore the small part of the Aral within it’s territory. Water levels have risen, native fish species have increased, wildlife is returning and, although slow, improvements to the environment are obvious. The fishing industry is employing local people once more, returning work to an impoverished region.
However, the Aral Sea should be seen in isolation. It is the end point of the vast Syr Darya and Amu Darya river watersheds that have their sources in the Tien Sian and Pamir mountains 3000km away on the borders of China and Afganistan. Since 2013 I have made several trips to the Aral and to the Naryn river in Kyrgyzstan to make field recordings, take photographs, talk to people and to try to understand the impact, on people and the environment, of the water uses and abuses along its length.
Tonight’s presentation includes audio recordings, images and stories from the mountains of Kyrgyzstan, the fertile Fergana valley and of different seasons beside the Aral itself.
Francisco López
“Widely acclaimed for the intensity, richness and astonishing audio
detail of his live immersive performances in the dark, sound artist and composer Francisco López has been enthralling audiences worldwide for decades with his sonic experiences with multi-channel surround systems and blindfolds provided for the public. Renowned for the complexity and intricacy of the unfolding aural micro-worlds, López works with sound as a ‘medium’ for a transcendental experience open to individual exploration: this is one-of-a-kind experience not to be missed.”



CD, edition of 300

3 track album
1. movement 1 (6:16)
2. movement 2 (54:54)
3. movement 3 (13:08)

“Try to imagine an astonishing reversal of the traditional widespread subservience of sound to story-telling: instead of sound effects providing realism to a narrative, the open shell of an apparent narrative becoming sound work… or perhaps even a new form of weird experimental music that only requires a willingness to listen to the actual sonic matter itself, precisely when it appears to be something else.”

“Was recorded, cut and mixed on a tascam porta one 4 track cassette recorder in tabuk ( saudi arabia) in 1986.

I used the track as part of an installation, playing it through speakers consisting of different – sized tubes made of different metals, and other sound bodies, to merge with surrounding sounds and noises. the original recording was remixed for listening through a regular sound system. please adjust volume as low as surround noise level!
