Circuit Scores-installation-postcard-lower res-2
In the context of Cluster Series, Viola Yip shows, performs, and invite musicians to interact with her new light and sound installation.Circuit Scores is a light and sound installation.

In her core practice, Viola Yip creates new self-built instruments and sculptures for her sound performances that allow her to form unorthodox relationships between materials, space and the performer’s body. In this new installation, Yip explores the hierarchies within circuits as her compositional building blocks, and eventually the circuit will become a score to perform.

Oct. 7, 18:00-22:00, solo performance by Viola Yip, 20:00.

Cluster is a new-music series devoted to the investigation of sound and notation, which provides musicians and composers with an exchange area in Berlin-Treptow, at the crossroad of compositional and performance practices.

Labor Neunzehn is an artist-run project engaged in a cross-disciplinary discourse on time-based-art that involves expanded cinema, modern music, publishing, and the critical reflection in media art, with a specific focus on the migration of these languages between the online and offline domains. As an independent curatorial platform and a non-profit initiative for the production of research projects, exhibitions, performances, workshops, we are committed to the presentation of collaborative outcomes and hybrid formats.

Labor Neunzehn constantly extends own curatorial concepts with the aim of opening up spaces for experimentation and discovery, fostering bottom-up community building, as well as endorsing interdisciplinary exchange between art practitioners, institutions, and audience in Berlin.

The project CLUSTER is generously supported by Initiative Neue Musik Berlin / field notes and Dezentrale Kulturarbeit Berlin-Treptow.
