Berlin Gallery Weekend 2019: Monika Werkstatt
Elektronic live improvisation in the installation »res·o·nant« by Mischa Kuball
For the Gallery Weekend, the five musicians of Monika Werkstatt working with the music legend Gudrun Gut will immerse the light installation res·o·nant by Mischa Kuball with electronic sounds. It will be the third experimental live gig in the installation space, following performances by bassist William Parker and Detroit techno mainstay Mike Banks.
On 26 and 27 April the collective will perform its "Ambient Werkstatt" in various formations inside the installation situated in two of the famous Voids of the Libeskind building. The musicians want to get involved, mix, and shuffle and to animate enjoyment and learning. Monika Werkstatt does not make music as "
pure weekend entertainment but with an unrestrained genuine experimental approach, that is revealing and also vulnerable in its freedom."
We want to inspire in a session without a twin safety net. Mistakes and fractures can occur during the experiment, but the collective performance continues until it’s back in the flow. We want to be more than music.

About res·o·nant by Mischa Kuball
Mischa Kuball’s installation res·o·nant brings to life two of the iconic Voids in the Libeskind Building of the Jewish Museum Berlin. The installation consists of several rotating projectors that cast light fields shaped like the Voids’ blueprints on the walls and ceilings of the 24-meter-tall spaces. Spinning mirrors and stroboscopic flashes are designed to spark "resonance between architecture and skin." Speakers scattered around the space play 60-second sound clips produced exclusively for res·o·nant by more than 220 musicians.
