A series of soundscapes, functioning as a synesthetic link among the various AB7 concepts, introduce us to the exhibition’s forthcoming experience. Every full moon, the 7th Athens Biennale invites music and sound artists to cast their vision of ECLIPSE into a single mixtape, inspired by a thematic spectrum spanning from African music to the most mystical, experimental and electronic sounds.
In August full moon, Teranga Beat crosses 50 years of African music with Hybrid iD, a mixtape that reinstates primal vibrations and rhythms. In September, K.atou sends out Moon Frequencies, taking us through hollow beats and cosmic synths in a journey to all things invisible to the human eye. For October’s double full moon, the Waiting Room project grasps the sound of time interval and the differential subjective experiences inside it: GRΞΤΑ narrates the story of a memory lapse after an Avalanche, while on the last day of the month Ayshel follows up with her own sonic perception of this quasi-void period.
