Vortrag
Elysia Crampton: Silver Mouth of The One Called Ukurunku
Dienstag, 8. November 2016, 19 Uhr, Aula

Elysia Crampton is a Bolivian-American producer, sound artist and conceptual collagist who performs and speaks around the world. Elysia’s music is an ambitious confluence of ideas, synthesising multiple underrepresented histories, geographies, musical genres and cultural signifiers into addictively colourful sonic material that packs contemporaneous dancefloor weight.

Following last year’s American Drift EP on Blueberry Records, her newest work, Elysia Crampton presents: Demon City arrives on Break World this summer: a concept album that works as an epic poem with guest appearances from Chino Amobi, Why Be, Rabit and Lexxi, Demon City will be accompanied by a live performance entitled Dissolution of The Sovereign: A Time Slide Into The Future, an audio-visual play that unfolds as a DJ production and live performance, bridging Aymara oral history tradition/theater legacy with Elysia’s own trans-femme abolitionist grasp of futurity.

Der Vortrag findet in englischer Sprache statt.
