Ekomane/Guffond/Nes - LongPlay - 22 Jun 2017

Three artists based in Berlin play live experimental electronics at Longplay cinema! Adhering to no genre, and ranging from sweetly demented to terrifying, yet beautiful.

Jessica Ekomane [FR/DE]
Jessica Ekomane was born in France. She now lives and works in Berlin. Her practice unfolds around sound installations and music. She creates situations where the sound acts as a transformative element for the space and the audience. This informs her musical compositions which seek a cathartic effect alternating between noise and melody, and playing with our perception of rhythmical structures.


Jasmine Guffond [AUS/DE]
Jasmine Guffond focuses on electronic composition across music and sound art contexts. Her practice spans live performance, recording and the capacity of sound installation to interrogate site.  Working with abstract sound as much as traditional musical forms to create a concordant relationship between a sound that holds emotive power and musicality, and a sensitive microscopic study of electro acoustic phenomena. She has recorded music for CD and 12inch vinyl releases with the Staubgold, Monika Enterprise and Sonic Pieces labels. A new album, Traced is due for release in July 2017 on Sonic Pieces.

Silje Nes [NOR/DE]
Silje Nes, Norwegian musician and sound artist. Her work was first known to the public with the release of two albums on British label FatCat Records. In June we welcome the release of her self-released 7-inch «Superimpositions of Metal and Air» on her own label Noko Ana. They feature two instrumental tracks combining electronic sound, field recordings, programming and the use of programmed kinetic sounding objects. Her music is a unique landscape, constantly moving yet always staying in place. The result is something resembling an organism, with a blurring of the line between technology and organic life. Taking interest in spacial and physical manifestations of sound, in her work she explores the creation of environments that will express a certain autonomy, removed from compositorial processes.
