Announcing Creamcake’s third and final “Paradise Found” music & performance event, happening at Berlin’s Klosterruine on August 17.
The concert will follow the second of the series on July 27, bringing together a spectrum of experimental and progressive sonic and cross-genre live acts to explore themes of velocity and deceleration, concentration and contemplation, noise and silence, in the tranquil ruins of an inner city monastery. “Paradise Found” presents a diversity of sound, timbre, volume and speed in an effort to probe the affective and somatic possibilities of music to inscribe both calming and unsettling moments in an environment. Between organic and inorganic objects and elements, atmospherically charged fields form around the audience to allow for free movement within each idiosyncratic experience. Musical vibrations transmit between bodies of all kinds —people, plants, these crumbling monastic walls—creating a lively and reactive presence that absorbs and releases cyclic energy.
A conceptual biotope, “Paradise Found” becomes a living space in which a spontaneous community can develop and flourish. A garden of elemental encounters and pauses, of desires and longings, the Franziskaner-Klosterkirche remains become a shelter and incubator for creative development and self-expression. On the final night, Los Angeles-based rising pop star Dorian Electra’s music defies convention with their futuristic spin on 00s pop, 80s funk and a long-standing love of satirizing rigid gender roles and views on sexuality. South London lyricist and DJ Shygirl showcases her talent for finding sounds from all your favourite club nights and giving them back doused in sarcasm and a dark-sided humour. Multidisciplinary artist i.ruuu embeds marginalized narratives through experimentations of color, space, coded sound, noise in their elaborate solo and group performances, and installations, while DJ, artist and curator Brooklyn Bridge produces heavy mixes laden with rave, noise and pop-cultural references.
