Good news! Nitrada has been invited to play a liveshow at this year’s seefa festival near Berlin. We’re looking forward to meet you there (on Saturday, June 23rd), it’s for free and the idea is stunning:
Sinnbus SEEFA, issue #5. Amidst jagged and sober architecture, we find a glow hovering above the water. Music resounds inside and all around it. It encapsules the performers inside, it invites audiences to have their way: Take part in the inside intimacies or savor the alienation outside. The glow’s heart is mirrored on its exterior shell - cut-up imagery, abstract streams, a free, autonomous visual equal to the sounds and the music.
For the fifth time, sinnbus invites you to witness SEEFA - our treasured, special and unique festival in the singular, balky setting of Berlin’s FEZ. Here, in the Kleines Forum, music exists in the two extremes of performance - the complete separation from the audience on the one hand, and the direct and immediate experience of sharing one moment and one point in space on the other. A closed room floating on the water basin’s surface gives the performers the freedom to work and play with each other, and eliminates the need to direct their performance towards their audience. At the same time, the listeners may cross the stage’s borders and share this intimate situation. Or they may decide to stay outside, where the music gets caught within buildings, and where all events become visual, edited and alienated and released as video projections.
