1st Athens Biennale 2007
Destroy Athens - Live
Live @ Public Opening
Curated by Chloe Vaitsou
Artists: Antifamily, Infinite Livez vs DJ Tendraw, 7000 Dirhams
From experimental politicised avant-pop commentary, to hip-hop jazz electronica improvisations, to real-time deconstruction & amplification of media, these artists all maintain a commitment to immediacy & non-virtuosity. This live programme engages with the Destroy Athens theme by treating Athens as a signal source to be sampled, tweaked with, looped, filtered, commented on and jammed along to. Through the use of on-site found & recorded sound & image, real-time local radio broadcasting interventions, and sonic-surgical media operations, the performers offer a response to context as they find it.
10th September, 21.00
“Technopolis” of the City of Athens
Destructive Sound Events
Curated by ILIOS
Artists: Costes, Antimatter/ Z. Karkowski, Scott Arford, V/VM, Dave Philips, Michael Gendreau, DJ set by FamilyBattlenake
A sound monster will occupy certain Athenian territories and will transmit a destructive sound wave. Here we don’t talk about bringing ΤΗΕ truth to you, we are not the good ones and the rest are the bad ones, no pioneers, no avant-guard, no entertainment, no substitution for the fake, there is just action, physical action, action that one can hear, see and even feel it as vibration.
13th – 14th October, 20.00
53, Kerameikou Street
Live hosted by Remap KM.
