christian kobi is a swiss musician and composer. his work explores the relationship between sound, silence and action in space. he performs and creates with various musicians, composers and artists in context of long term partnerships with artists such as phill niblock, jürg frey, taku sugimoto and keith rowe.

radu malfatti is a composer and an improviser based in vienna. some decades ago, he was one of the most important freejazz-trombone player and later improviser in the english school. after 35 – 40 years he got saturated and was looking for new ways to compose and improvise which led him to the wanderweiser group and made him change from trombone to bass-harmonica.

Bella Angora // CLOSE/R (2020/21)

Während des ersten Lockdown begann Bella Angora Portraits von ihr nahestehenden Menschen zu zeichnen – es war für sie eine Form der Kommunikation, eine Möglichkeit der Berührung.
Zu der entstanden Serie „ZEICHNENGEGENDIEEINSAMKEIT“ erarbeitete Bella Angora die medienübergreifende Performance CLOSE/R, bei der sich Videosequenzen mit performativen Handlungen verbinden.
Ein klares Farbkonzept legt sich über das gesamte Geschehen und verdichtet den Raum, in dem die Künstlerin als ihr eigenes Selbtportrait agiert.
Text und minimalistische Gesangsmelodien umhüllen die Performance, deren Kraft auf einem reduzierten Gestus und kontrastreichen Ausdruck basiert.
Die eigene erlebte Gefühlswelt wird veräußert und mit gesellschaftlichen Phänomenen und Tendenzen abgeglichen. Eine Medieninstallation wird zu einem Raum der fragmentierten Begegnung zwischen Performerin und ZuschauerInnen.

„Forced to Repeat Myself“ // Simon Whetham

For the event at Klangraum Simon Whetham will present a version of his 2020 Misanthropic Agenda released project „Forced to Repeat Myself“, composed from material collected while touring in 2018.

„There’s often an eavesdropping sensation at play in this scattered anti-music – intercepting distant frequencies, patching into intrepid robot cleaners as they make their rounds, floods rising in basements, small shelf trays of nuts, bolts and screws shaken by tremors. Forced to Repeat Myself sputters, sizzles and squelches appreciably, inconsistently sketched one moment and unspeakably immense the next.“

Raymond Cummings, The Wire magazine, January 2021
