YOYI! Care, Repair, Heal
Intimate Connections: Musical Explorations of Rest and the Inner Self
With Vera Dvale, Ross Alexander and Bitsy Knox
Bitsy Knox, Ross Alexander and Vera Dvale are part of the radio show Intimate Connections, produced in collaboration with the Berlin-based community radio Cashmere Radio and presented in the Resonance Room as part of the exhibition YOYI! Care, Repair, Heal. One afternoon long, they will fill the Gropius Bau’s atrium with sounds.
- Saturday, 1 October 2022
- Gropius Bau, Atrium (Ground floor)
- Free admission (first come, first served)
Bitsy Knox will build a soundscape with live geophonic recording of Gropius Bau´s vibrations. The atrium will become a wandering mind. Vera Dvale will be weaving together a series of segments of sounds that reflect selected places and moods. She exercises a sonic dialogue that entangle in the ecologies of the intimate. Like an open-ended thread, her sound piece reflects an intuitive response to the interdependence between humans and plants. Ross Alexander will interpret a sound piece that he developed together with the artist KMRU. This collage is devoted to sounds of rest, recovery and recuperation and explores non-productivity as an act of active resistance.
The broadcast series Intimate Connections engages with music’s capacity to help us cope and develop in manifold ways.
