How does listening affect us the way that watching affects us? 3hd presents composer Marta Forsberg and artist duo Green Music to perform at HAU Hebbel am Ufer on Saturday, November 25. United by a deep devotion to improvisation, healing, and meditative music, the three participants will create intimate environments that a broadened perception and new musical imagination. Francesco Cavaliere and Tomoko Sauvage of Green Music are inspired by the work by the Fluxus artist and composer Henning Christiansen, playing with green sculptures and instruments made of a combination of mineral, glass, plants and painted synthesizers. Here, they are surrounded by a small collection of green curiosities: statuettes, clay, plants, oil and fluorescent elements. These small individual pieces become extraordinary talismans that boost their sound waves and underwater pendulums.
Forsberg, on the other hand, explores darkness, light, and color in her compositions. Using LED light, fabric, sequins and minimalist drone-based electronic music, she explores the political aspect of visibility on stage as an artist, and the need to create your own space, loudly and visually. This will be the framework around a parallel reality, like walls of glass against the rest of the world. Here Forsberg can move freely, and invites the audience to move with her. Her performances stand for safety, space, rest, and glow. A room to embrace and rest in, where the only thing that exists is what is happening here and now.
This “Meditation on Music” event marks the last show of 3hd “Whatever You Thought, Think Again” at HAU Hebbel am Ufer, before we go on to dance at OHM after party.
