Monumental sonic landscapes meet intimate piano drops
Norwegian duo Deaf Center still consists of Erik K Skodvin (see too: his alter-ego Svarte Greiner or his superb label Miasmah) and Otto A Totland (Nest). They were once described by Humo as ‘the Scandinavian cousins of Boards of Canada’. Ever since their magical debut ‘Pale Ravine’, from 2005, they are considered to be an established name in the world of post-classical electronic drone-music. After taking a few years off, Deaf Center releases a new album ‘Low Distance’ which, after the eclectic sound of their previous album ‘Owl Splinters’, ‘Low Distance’, is a return to quieter and more minimalistic work.
Sonic Pieces is turning 10
Berlin’s contemporary-classical/ambient label Sonic Pieces celebrates its 10th anniversary this year. To mark the occasion, BRDCST gives the driving force behind Sonic Pieces (and founding mother) Monique Recknagel carte blanche to put together a big evening around this boutique label. The musical part of the evening will take place in the unique environs of the superbly restored art nouveau Foyer Hamesse, in arthouse-cinema Palace (opposite AB). On the bill: Danish quartet We Like We, Spanish neo-classical/electro composer Rauelsson, and the almost mythical post-classical drone-duo Deaf Center.
For the entire month of April, in AB Resto, there will be a micro-expo with tactile artwork.
