Krake Festival opens up again this year at Silent Green, a beautiful former crematorium in the north of Berlin, which has been operating as an art and cultural center for a few years only. Its remarkable octagonal domed room offers the perfect surrounding to host performances outside the usual club context. Raster-Noton's Byetone presents his recent project, which combines his typical rhythmical sound with a projection of spiral floods of colour. Mary Ocher, known for addressing discomforts and tensions in our society with her polarizing performances, appears solo with her beautiful piano playing set to support her stunning voice. MNM, comprised of the Hiroshima born sound artist Mieko Suzuki and the Singaporian dancer Ming Poon, introduce their installation/interactive concert, which has been explored in clubs as well as art places like the Centre Pompidou.
