William “Bilwa” Costa andMichael McDermott premiering “FIDELITY” 

A new collaborative project between berlin based performer sound artist and composer Willian Bilwa Costa and Michael McDermott, sound artist in residency at Liebig12 for the month of September. During his residency Michael will also present durational sonic meditation concerts, give a talk on the connection between Deep Listening and Sonic Ecology , 


Berlin based AFTERBURNER is the new collaborative project of vocalist Audrey Chen and electronic artist Doron Sadja. Unique in a crowded field of voice and electronics duos, the pair weaves together Chen’s idiosyncratic vocal growls and chirps with Sadja’s dense synthetic atmospheres and immersive smoke and light show into a singular monolithic landscape.
