STEFAN HADJIEV. (work presentation without artist)
After graduating from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, Stefan Hadjiev distinguished himself on the international concert scene as a versatile and innovative artist who always looks beyond the standard definitions of music-making and dedicates himself to a very diverse repertoire. In doing so, he repeatedly removes the boundaries between the musical genres and unfolds a radical interpretive aesthetic that throws new light on the essence of music. He was co-founder of "180 °", an innovative festival in Sofia (Bulgaria) for experimental music and interdisciplinary art.
Born in Northern California, Berlin-based producer Jamaica Suk has developed into an experimental musician who combines post-modern forms of melody and industrial drive in her sets. In her signature distorted melodies and hints of melancholic bass guitar, you might hear where Suk started - playing bass guitar in jazz, grindcore and math rock bands, before getting deep into the Bay Area’s house and techno underground. A lifelong musician and experimenter, Suk has fused her jazz and metal roots with a feel for soulful techno, a combination that makes her at home leading driving dancefloor workouts across Europe.

He has collaborated with artists like Boogaerdt/Van der Schoot, Laurent Chétouane, Susanne Kennedy, Mouse on Mars, Peaches, Sasha Waltz & Guests and Ladislav Zajac among others.

Mehmet Güren aka Sudden Beach is a self-taught composer, producer, performer and audiovisual artist. He started experimenting with modular synthesizers and is now even developing his own instrument.

KLANGBOX x Zora Auguste is a concert series with audio(visual) acts that refer to sound art and express a variety of perspectives. Each edition is presenting different approaches while the musicians are invited to question familiar sounds and instruments. Boundary areas are explored - be it through classical instruments, electronic production, avant-garde approaches, improvisation or ideas linked to visual expressions. For each of the three KLANGBOX editions, four half-hour contributions by artists will be presented together in a salon concert like a live sound gallery, including one audiovisual performance. The visual works will also be available as limited art prints, the audio works as double cassette boxes and digital releases. As a reverberation of the concerts, individual sounds of the performances can be experienced as an installation in a "room box" in the basement (opening hours 2.-12.9. / Thursdays to Sundays 12-18h).
KLANGBOX is curated and presented by Feral Note, a Berlin label focusing on electro-acoustic art music. The venue, gallery and showroom Zora Auguste (Leipziger Str. 60, 10117 Berlin), has been created by two art and design lovers, Nella Beljan and Marie Wez. The ground floor area with high ceilings will have a quadrophonic concert setting; the basement area used as a bank vault in GDR times, offers special echo acoustics for the installation with individual sounds, presented with radial loudspeakers.
Supported by Martion Audiosysteme and Zora Auguste. Funded by Musikfonds e.V. by means of the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and Media (BKM), as part of the NEUSTART KULTUR recovery programme.
