Essay

The essay summarizes the Czech-Brazilian cultural theorist and media philosopher Vilém Flusser’s ideas on the apparatus, codes, and programmed and manipulated society. He ends his texts by highlighting the importance of artists who might be able to play with and against the apparatus and challenge mass media and their preprogrammed functions.

Thirdspace: a performance w/ Dea Karina & Nico Daleman


19:30 –
Haus der Indonesischen Kulturen

This evening will feature new work from Dea Karina & Nico Daleman, working loosely (though not exclusively) with sounds from Columbia, Indonesia and the unique instruments of the Haus der Indonesischen Kulturen.

The pieces explore different aspects of music technology, creating a dialogue between Southeast Asia and South America. From field recordings and analogue devices to stochastic synthesis and AI generated audio, the technologies enter a transcultural negotiation as equalized partners. The elaborated and multifaceted soundscapes create a third sonic space where perspectives on the uses and abuses of music technology confront themselves.

Most recently, the duo performed with a 3rd AI entity for Soy&Synth 2022, a concert series featuring artists from southeast Asian and south American diasporas.

This evening is presented by L-KW and hosted graciously at Haus der Indonesischen Kulturen - Rumah Budaya Indonesia.

Nico Daleman: Nico Daleman is a Colombian-born sound artist and musicologist based in Berlin. His pieces explore sonic spatial perception, psychoacoustics, dynamic systems and stochastic processes in order to (re)create, re(interpret) and (re)(imagine) real and virtual spaces.

His research investigates new modes of performing and perceiving, hereby deliberately creating coexisting soundscapes and feedback loops that blur the lines between sound and space, and spectator and performer.

His pieces have been shown in Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Schwartzsche Villa, CLB at Aufbau Haus, SoundSAbout, and Muffathalle in Munich, and he has taken part in performances at Soy&Synth UferStudios 2022, Soundance Berlin 2021, Zentrum für Kunst und Medien in Karlsruhe (ZKM), Silent Green Berlin, Darmstadt 2018, ACUD MACHT NEU and Loophole.

He is the host of "The Rest is Music", a monthly show on cashmere radio that explores practices of contemporary and experimental electronic music on the periphery of the canon.

He received a grant from the department of culture of the City of Berlin in 2021 for his research project Data Empathy. Nico studied Audio Engineering, Musicology and Sound Studies & Sonic Arts in Bogotá, Boston and Berlin.

Dea Karina: I explore & perform experimental sounds in my bedroom (more so during the COVID-19 pandemic). My current sonic projects are mostly under my name (Dea Karina), tujuh kuda, or d3k4. I am also currently in several unreleased others. As my projects are scattered around the internet, I’ve decided to compile them here as a portfolio. I use various methods & instruments in my music production, including “stealing” radio broadcasts, a cigarbox guitar, DIY synthesizers, an analog synth, microphones & contact mics, effect pedal(s), looper(s), and DAWs. You can watch my bedroom performances on this page.

One of tujuh kuda’s albums was featured in The Wire 2020 and I have played in festivals such as Jogja Noise Bombing Festival (2018 & 2020), SOTU Online Festival 2020, Waltham Forest Borough of Culture 2019. My works have been released by The Dark Outside (UK), Noise Bombing (Indonesia), Dubbed Tapes (Aotearoa) and Mindblasting Netlabel (Yogyakarta).
