Performance II / From A Whisper To A Riot

10. April 2021 / 8 – 10 pm

DJ UtaSarah Farina and Perera Elsewhere are arguably some of the most constantly influential protagonists of the Berlin bass music scene. Renowned for producing and playing across many genres, they are consistently connected by the low end of the frequency spectrum.


For SOUND(ING) SYSTEMS, the three DJs developed an exclusive set comprised of  three suites – Part 1, Whisper; Part 2, Uprising; and Part 3, Riot – in which music comes into its own as an expression of emancipatory movements and the politicization of the dance floor.


SOUND(ING) SYSTEMS has been developed under the artistic direction and curation of Nik Nowak within the context of the exhibition Schizo Sonics at Kesselhaus, KINDL – Center for Contemporary Art.

SOUND(ING) SYSTEMS is a free program that interrogates the political and sonic resonances of physical and virtual boundaries. During the Cold War there were fortified borders, especially along the Iron Curtain.

Since the 1990s, there has been increasing investment in border installations to ‘protect’ against immigrants from the global south. Thousands of people escaping all forms of war, persecution and seeking asylum, die in their attempts to flee these unlivable conditions every year. Organizations like Sea-Watch are continuously fighting the deadly consequences and indifference of the increasing isolationism of Europe.
