A collaborative online concert by six improvisers, composers, and experimental musicians from Germany and the US, in which they embrace the glitches and asynchrony that are endemic to long-distance, live streams to explore a different form of spatial performance. The aim is to explore a new sort of streaming sonic spatialization, one that subverts the compulsion in music production and consumption for rigid synchronization.
Each of the artists will perform from a different geographic location (Berlin, Boston, Chicago, New York, Providence), feeding their audio and video into a multi-channel stream that is mixed live with auat Haus der Kulturen der Welt (HKW) in Berlin by Jan St. Werner and Andi Toma from Mouse on Mars.
