Blind Signal Multiple - September 2020

We are very grateful for the chance we have had to complete this project.
Blind Signal wants to specialy thanks the artists and composers Marisol Jimenez for her indescribable works, so much to be felt, Andreas Trobollowitsch for his hard work. Kiku Day, Alexander Kranabetter and Carina khorkhordina for their fantastic playing and dedication. Allegra Solitue for supporting us in the communication, Jens Papé for giving an hand with the production, Max Alter for his precious help and the upcomming videos and all the friends and the audience who came with a smile that warmed us up.
Moreover, this project would not have been possible without the support of Initiative Neue Musik Berlin / field notes, Musikfonds e.V. and AKM/austromechana.
To finish a special thank you to all the team of the Foerderband Kulturinitiative Berlin that have been very supportive.
This little silent video is a gift of the videografer and friend Justine Durand to close up the project.

This September, Blind Signal is hosting several events in the Kleiner Wasserspeicher in Prenzlauer Berg, Berlin. The two water reservoirs in this area "are of almost sacred beauty, lie in mysterious darkness and were exposed to decay for decades". Since 1994 the spaces have been opened again to the public and used by artists, reawakening the awareness of the city as architectural and technical historical public spaces.
Come and experience it for yourself in September at:
13-15 Sept: Strange Loop - The former water reservoir becomes the setting for an installation concert in which performers interact with light, architecture and spatial sound.
20-21 Sept: Blind Signal GRMN VTNM - Nine solo artists, musicians and composers from Vietnam and Germany, will be creating new pieces engaging the specificities of the space.
Diedenhofer Straße, Prenzlauer Berg
