Labor Neunzehn is pleased to invite you to the first event of this year's Cluster Series.

** Circuit Scores

** 7.10.2022 Cluster #20

** an audiovisual installation by Viola Yip

Viola Yip shows, performs, and invite musicians to interact with her new light and sound installation. With Kriton Beyer, Emilio Gordoa, Jacob Greenberg, Nicola L. Hein, Weston Olencki, Ute Wasserman.

In her core practice, Viola Yip creates new self-built instruments and sculptures for her sound performances that allow her to form unorthodox relationships between materials, space and the performer’s body. In her new installation Circuit Scores, Yip explores the hierarchies within circuits as her compositional building blocks, and eventually the circuit will become a score to perform. Sound and silence work together, the music seeks redemption and purification in an atmosphere that is alive and sick at the same time, like Jarman’s garden at Prospect Cottage, a magical place where colourful flowers bloom among the pebbles and crosses made of rusty iron left by the sea on the beach, coexisting between the sea and a nuclear power plant on the horizon.

Cluster is a new-music series devoted to the investigation of sound and notation, which provides musicians and composers with an exchange area in Berlin-Treptow, at the crossroad of compositional and performance practices.

Labor Neunzehn is an artist-run project engaged in a cross-disciplinary discourse on time-based-art that involves expanded cinema, modern music, publishing, and the critical reflection in media art, with a specific focus on the migration of these languages between the online and offline domains. As an independent curatorial platform and a non-profit initiative for the production of research projects, exhibitions, performances, workshops, we are committed to the presentation of collaborative outcomes and hybrid formats.
Labor Neunzehn constantly extends own curatorial concepts with the aim of opening up spaces for experimentation and discovery, fostering bottom-up community building, as well as endorsing interdisciplinary exchange between art practitioners, institutions, and audience in Berlin.

Circuit Scores is produced by Labor Neunzehn with the generous support of inm e.V. Berlin / field notes (https://www.inm-berlin.de/en/) and Dezentrale Kulturarbeit Treptow-Köpenick.
