Beschreibung des Events
The first of two August Kiezsalon specials is at Villa Elisabeth, the parish hall of St. Elisabeth’s Church in Berlin-Mitte.

Zu diesem Event

The Villa Elisabeth is one of Berlin’s protected architectural monuments. Its grandeur and its historical charm - with parquet floor, and stucco-ornamented columns and archways that support the overhanging gallery - represent a new, exciting expression of the series, and the grounds of the church invite you to linger longer, between and after the concerts.

► We are happy to present Kazakh/British violinist Galya Bisengalieva, Norwegian-Mexican ambient composer Carmen Villain, and Berlin-based composer and sound artist Maya Shenfeld.

→The music of Galya Bisengalieva is dark and atmospheric. The Kazakh-British composer and violinist centres unyielding drones as she weaves across genres like folk, ambient, classical, and electronic music. An internationally-recognised performer, Galya has played at venues including the Barbican, National Centre for the Performing Arts in Mumbai, and the Brooklyn Academy of Arts. She has closely collaborated with some of the world’s finest musicians spanning many genres including Suzanne Ciani, Laurie Spiegel, Terry Riley, Thom Yorke and Actress. Galya’s solos and improvisations can be heard on numerous albums, film soundtracks and TV productions. She has also toured key solos for live productions of 'Phantom Thread', 'Under the Skin', 'he Piano', and 'There Will Be Blood'.

→Norwegian-Mexican artist and producer Carmen Villain makes atmospheric music made up of tapestries of field-recordings, flute, piano, vocals, zither, programmed drums and synths, culminating in her own distinctive sound combining elements of fourth world, dub and ambient. Through an experimental approach to production and composition, the results are often a mixture of an abstract soundscape rich in detail, permeated with beautiful harmonies and melodies. She has released a number of albums, EP’s and 12" for labels such as Smalltown Supersound, Geographic North and Longform Editions. Her latest release, 'Sketch for Winter IX: Perlita', was released in January this year.

→Berlin composer Maya Shenfeld’s music is as powerfully evocative as it is strikingly intimate. Through a mastery of sound sculpting and an approach to composition, drawing equally from classical tradition and underground experimentalism, Shenfeld has established herself as one of the most vital voices in Berlin’s New Music scene. Following large-scale commissions for new music ensembles, site-specific sound installations and a performance of Julius Eastman’s Gay Guerilla for a 16-piece all-women guitar ensemble (Disappearing Berlin), Shenfeld here gives an intimate solo set for Kiezsalon. Shenfeld’s solo works merge the grand vision of orchestral music with the granularity and intimacy of deep listening, exploring the physical nature of sound.

Last season, our shows sold out quickly, so we recommend securing your tickets early to avoid disappointment. Do not buy second-hand tickets from strangers – there are scammers around. As part of our safety first policy, tickets are only available via Eventbrite. There is no box office or guest list. Due to the pandemic, changes may be made at short notice. In the event of any changes, we will inform you by E-Mail.

The Kiezsalon has offered a forum for innovative musical activity beyond genre boundaries. As an interface between avant-garde, advanced pop music and interdisciplinary art, the series presents compact shows of 30 minutes by artists of diverse genres, origin and status.

Please be aware that format of the event and venue arrangements have been adapted to maximize safety, and we have created a strict Kiezsalon hygiene and safety policy.

The Kiezsalon is a project by Digital in Berlin, curated by Michael Rosen and funded by Senate Department for Culture and Europe.
