B. Concert / Performance

One pulsating surface (2023).
Solo performance for expressive objects by Marina Poleukhina.

One pulsating surface is a solo performance for expressive objects, where each object communicates, moves and transforms in relation to a musical gesture. It is the energy, which as gesture and sound shapes the instrument. Together they become weightless, yet tangible, full of sensibility. It is a sculpture, which you observe and to which you listen. And while it is happening, the moment of intimacy unexpectedly finds you and connects with you from the inside.

Marina Poleukhina is composer and improviser.
The focus of her artistical attention lies in an interdisciplinary work. Her music unite a creation of a world that goes beyond only sounds. It connects movement, light, video projections on unusual surfaces, manipulation of ordinary devices that make them become instruments, objects that create their own space. This evolves into new and unexplored acoustical situations of an intense complexity. A territory made of crossroads of genres. 
Her music is played on festivals: Ultima (Oslo), Wien Modern (Vienna), Path Festival (Verona), MATA (New York) and others. She works with ensembles such as Nadar, MCME, Nostri Temporis,Looptail, Zwerm, Platypus, Airborne Extended, Curious chamber; with musicians such as Jennifer Torrence, Alexander Chernyshkov, Alessandro Baticci, Stefan Voglsinger, Tomomi Adachi, Vladimir Gorlinsky, Didi Kern, Franz Hautzinger, Kirill Shirokov; with choreographers such as Johanna Nielsen, Paul Wenninger, Agnes Schneidewind. 
She works and walks in Vienna.

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, 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.

This concert for Cluster Series is generously supported by inm Berlin e.V and the Senatsverwaltung für Kultur und Europa
