J. G. Biberkopf + Beatrice Dillon @ The Barbican, Jun 27

25 June 2015

London’s NTS Radio opens the first Station to Station live event with J.G. Biberkopf at The Barbican this Saturday, June 27.

The Lithuanian-born, Berlin-based producer and artist has been dabbling in ASMR and experimental sounds (“spoken samples and raps,” as he described it, “as well as buried breaths and gasps”), releasing first his image mix and later the imageless Video one, citing the privilege of “the supremacy of pure artistic feeling” over its visual depiction.

Biberkopf has changed his tune for the upcoming NTS event, joining London-based DJ and composer Beatrice Dillon for a live AV collaboration, and welcoming visual components by photographer Anne Tetzlaff and artist Jack Sachs , all to be followed by a DJ set from Chloe Frieda (Alien Jams).
