Liebig12 presents:

Adam Pultz Melbye/Akemi Nagao – #2
#2 explores the mythology of physical objects and their existence in space. Akemi Nagao and Adam Pultz Melbye investigate the perceptual contents of encounters with seemingly familiar phenomena as they are reduced to sensory stimuli governed by the gravitational pull. Slowly peeling away experiential biases, the objects themselves step forth and resonate through space propelled by the power of each new encounter.
Akemi Nagao and Adam Pultz Melbye: Choreography, composition, movement.

Faber McDermott – fm1
Collaborative performance series by Danish singer, composer and storyteller Katrine Faber and American composer and sound artist Michael McDermott, integrating mythology, field recordings, animism, singing, sonic ecology and Deep Listening. McDermott produced an album (Landscapes 3: Iceland) of field recordings inspired by the dramatic landscapes of north and central Iceland which will be the basis for his soundscapes of “sonic photograph” field recordings, keyboard and processing over which Faber will weave her voice, electronics, and tape loops.
