Cherished club music trendsetters and technology theorists Holly Herndon & Mat Dryhurst return with a special performance, together with a vocal ensemble of Berlin-based musicians. The performance will explore themes of AI and frontiers (technological, geographical, and otherwise) while celebrating community and endorsing hope in the face of despondency.
The ensemble compare and contrast the raw, guttural aesthetics of traditional folk singing styles with the humanoid, future-hailing flair of voices sent through synthesis and processing. In keeping with the commending of alternative types of family and kin, the evening’s other performances will be given by members of the choir, many of whom have their own compelling solo projects. The ensemble is composed of a crew of Berlin-based creatives: Albertine Sarges, houaïda, Josa Peit, Lyra, Marshall Garrett, and UCC Harlo will open the night with short, cabaret-style vignettes.
