SOY & SYNTH #34
Streaming from our Youtube Channel
Start from : 19:00
Special performance by JUMAEMBU and PETER KIRN
Soy & Synth, is Soydivision's monthly culinary and experimental music performance showcase. Soy, with its very general (some might say western) association with asian identity and its versatility, provides Soydivision with the culinary foundation, while the synthesizer plays an analogous role in the performances. As with all Soydivision events, there will be food inspired by their Indonesian background and their experiences living in Germany in general and Berlin in particular.
ABOUT THE PERFORMANCE
is the new project from Marcello Busato and Emma Juliard, never played in front of an audience but already recorded a video of their last improvisation.
"They sit in front of each other. One behind a drum kit and a myriad of bells and cymbals. The other behind hand-made instruments and effect pedals.
We all dive, with them, for the entire set, into their world, which is sustained by waves of rhythm and an ever shifting electronic drone which defines the color of each moment. Are we in the mountains ? Are we at a punk rock concert ? Probably in the depth of the Ocean…
The two musicians don’t talk but they become one within the music ; they sync breaks and breath, to take totally unexpected turns and shift amplitude, dynamics, speed, allowing us to reach a number of landscapes.
Listening to them play is like a travel through dark webs all the way up into the clouds within one long hike wearing magic boots."
