Ed Osborn (USA)
Ed Osborn presents several new sound installations in the show
air driver at Sparwasser in October. The kinetic nature of these
pieces provides a kind of living presence within the exhibition
space. The installations are playfully focused on the gallery-windows:
knocking and vibrating the glass, bridging with sound the border
space of the gallery, and producing a sharp call for attention
to the street outside. The works demonstrate a visceral sense
of space, aurality, and motion combined with a precise economy
The recipient of many awards
including a Guggenheim Fellowship, Ed Osborn has shown extensively
in the United States, Canada, Australia and Europe. His sound-based
artworks take many forms including installation, sculpture, radio,
video, performance, and public projects. Ed Osborn has been brought
to Berlin through the DAAD Artists-in-Berlin Program.

...lives & workds
in Tokyo & Berlin. He is doing both sonic & visual work.
His work deals with the subtleties and complexities of the nature
of perception. Davis has had concerts and exhibits in the states,
japan, Germany, Mexico, Holland, Spain, Fnland, China, Africa
& Ecuador. With a background in physics, his installations
often explore what light and sound is, and how we perceive or
don't perceive it, in what appears to be a "no-question-no-answer-test".

The site of the performance- a planetarium, a church,
an old ruin - is the base of inspiration.

"POP POISONED POETRY"

in Z-BAR Bergstrasse 2
by Sparwasser HQ round the corner
"POP POISONED POETRY"
is a collaboration between Miss Tigra (danish poetry-performer,
writer and singer) and T.Raumschmiere (the man behind the Berlin
underground-label Shitkatapult), where he with his melancolic
dusty, crispy and sponky sounds is putting electrical power to
the droning voice of Miss Tigra.
However this evening the poet
in the striped fur coat will stand alone on stage, but she´ll
bring us the sound from the T.Raum-boy to present us their world
of soundscapes, created together in a east-berlin backyeard over
milchcaffe´s and future-visions.
Listen to the track "Dropping"
