Chess is math and like chess, Karpov not Kasparov’s sound is a mathematical fusion of electronic music, an early 80’s sound and some jazzy-oriental flavours. Like in chess, the drum machine and the vintage synths take turns on the offensive, wrapping around one another in a psychedelic waltz. Every move the instruments make nudges the track towards a new direction and changes the course of the game. The result is danceable, fluid and favourably inclined towards out-of-consciousness experiences: https://youtu.be/f3EJaZ_0TK8

Kee Avil is a solo song project based in Montreal, QC. It combines guitar, voice and electronics into song forms that stagger between structure and improvisation. Kee Avil evolved from playing the guitar with broken cymbals and drumsticks into creating strange beats glued together by samples of screws dropped into crystal bowls: https://youtu.be/wysP8VXSTTg

Yuko Araki is a multi-instrumentalist based in Tokyo. She began playing piano as a child. Inspired by the hardcore and metal music she heard in her hometown rehearsal studios, she first joined a band as a teenager. Araki founded the noise duo Concierto de la Familia in 2016, as well as playing drums in the Oriental dream-psych band KUUNATIC. In 2017, she started her solo improvised harsh noise project using cymbals and analog synths.

Since early 2015 the Kiezsalon has offered a forum for innovative musical activity beyond genre boundaries. As an interface between avantgarde, advanced pop music and interdisciplinary art the series presents compact performances by artists from diverse genres, origin and status. Initiated by Digital in Berlin and based at one of the last authentic locations in Berlin, the 120 year old Schneider Brewery. Following four exciting years, the Kiezsalon has established itself as a popular and successful series, so far hosting 82 acts from 29 countries: www.kiezsalon.de
