xin is an artist and musician based in Berlin. They are mindful of avoiding conventions and like to pull away from the patterns and grids that instruments, software, and the music biz in general often so conveniently provide. No wonder, the rhythms and sounds on their debut solo release, To Shock the Sky and Shake the Earth, defy definition. The EP was released digitally through Subtext Recordings earlier this year. Out of a strong desire to approach things differently and inspire change, it is not to be found on your usual big corporate streaming services but only on a couple of independent platforms.
On occasion of the release, Subtext highlighted how xin is “navigating spaces between conventions, cultures, pressures and sounds”. And that’s just one of the reasons why we’re outright delighted that xin chose KOOKOO as the proper setting to present their first official live performance. It definitely promises to shock the sky and shake the concrete floor at OHM Gallery.
As if that weren’t enough, fine artist LINDA HAVENSTEIN will present some of her latest work, stemming from her urge to examine phenomena we most often take for granted and her drive to meditate on and unveil their concealed meanings and effects. More visual art is displayed by KOOKOO mainstays CARLY FISCHER and YUKIHIRO TAGUCHI, more rhythms and sounds that are trying to pull away from the grid are provided by KOOKOO hosts MIEKO SUZUKI and ARA.
begin the fall into your arms…
Let’s go KOOKOO!
