Trauma Bar und Kino announces Songs for Attunement, featuring durational performances from Colin Self, Iceboy Violet, Steven Warwick, Golin & more, Jul 1—3

15 June 2022

Trauma Bar und Kino presents Songs for Attunement, an “exhibition of live works” featuring durational performances on July 1 and 3.

With performative installations from six artists including Colin Self, Iceboy Violet and Steven Warwick, the project will immerse Trauma Bar und Kino in activations spanning spoken word, movement and electronics. Also featuring Golin, Lil Asaf and Stine Janvin, the events explore the terms ‘attunement’ and ‘enaction’—borrowed from psychology and biology—to dissolve barriers of traditional musical performance. As noted in the press release: “Without beginning or end, and without the separation of “stage”, visitors can engage with the artists (and vice-versa) with no predictable linearity or outcome. The live works function individually, but also as a whole, creating a sonic/performative ecosystem, with the body and the voice both medium and artwork.”

See Trauma Bar und Kino’s website for more information and tickets.**

Manipulated & dehumanised: ST/NE shares a stop motion video for the satirical pop of her choppy vocal assemblage on ‘Open Minded’

20 December 2018

ST/NE (aka Stine Janvin) released EP ME/WE via London’s Laura Lies In on November 23, with a music video for ‘Open Minded’ premiering on AQNB today. The Berlin-based Norwegian vocalist, performer and sound artist released an album on PAN in October, as well as a collaboration with Felicity Mangan under the Native Instrument moniker on Shelter Press last year.

While her earlier Fake Synthetic Music LP concentrated on “architectural electronic music” by exploring optical and auditory illusions referencing pop, trance and techno, ME/WE leans more heavily on Janvin’s background in jazz and improvisation. The EP is described as a “satirical pop experiment” made up of cut up, layered and turbulent compositions of field recordings, vocal samples and electronics. Oslo-based noise musician and artist Lasse Marhaug‘s video to accompany lead single ‘Open Minded’ consists a similarly choppy, stop motion slide of Janvin wearing a pink wig and posing with bags of dead leaves.**

ST/NE’s ME/WE EP was released via London’s Laura Lies In on November 23, 2018.
