Concert, Exhibition

die raum
Oderberger Str. 56, 10435 Berlin-Prenzlauer Berg

Vinyl-terror & -horror, a duo consisting of Camilla Sørensen and Greta Christensen, will perform a live turntable concert at the Project Space festival. Their performance will be set against the backdrop of Anne-Mette Schultz's installation 'Real Chairs', currently on view at die raum.

Vinyl-terror & -horror are renowned for their captivating turntable concerts and immersive, humorous, post-apocalyptic sound installations. In their concerts, the duo approaches the vinyl medium from a distinctly sculptural perspective, using the material and formats as compositional agents that lead to unexpected outcomes. They play manipulated records, including broken, baked, collaged 'cut-ups' on multi-pickup turntables.

Their approach to sampling takes an analog form, blending a wide range of culturally diverse musical genres in a non-hierarchical mix, such as classical, folk, and schlager music, as well as horror film sound effects, pan flute bird imitations, and aerobic instructions.

At the core of Vinyl-terror & -horror's manipulation of found objects and sounds is a desire to deconstruct familiar structures and compose a new, highly uncanny narrative.

die raum

die raum is a 5 m2 purpose-built project space in Prenzlauer Berg, founded in 2011. The exhibition space was designed by the BARarchitects as an integral part of a building that contains a variety of functional spaces including workshops, studios, a restaurant, a shop, and apartments. It is conceived as an experimental site creating a dynamic 'membrane' between the building and street life. Therefore, every exhibition project is produced for die raum and presents a dialogue with the architectural and social context of the space. All shows are accessible 24/7, much like a public sculpture.

Exhibitions, as well as performances, concerts, and talks, are accompanied by a poster contextualising each project co-designed by each artist.

die raum was founded by curator Lotte Møller and visual artist Jesper Dyrehauge. Since 2015 the project space has been run solely by the former. die raum aims to create a varied program to reach a local, as well as an international audience and passers-by.
