Born in Brussels, the pianist Anaïs Tuerlinckx moved to Berlin in 2008 and has since been part of the vibrant and diverse Berlin music scene dedicated to improvisation.

In her work, Anaïs Tuerlinckx explores the inner piano. She tends towards a more physical and expansive way of playing, her performances are characterized by noise and harsh sounds, but also look for the more elegiac, airy and wide spaces. With her piano activism, she also likes to get involved in public space outside of the concert hall. As a music teacher, Anaïs Tuerlinckx teaches improvisation at a music school.

The music of the trio Zapparoli/Hofmann/Lorenz moves between noise, experimental electronics and contemporary composition. Marta Zapparoli works with cassette decks, reel-to-reel tape recorders, antennas and radio receivers. Their flat sound textures complement the rhythmic structures of the drum duo Sebastian Hofmann and Martin Lorenz to form a symbiosis that is both orchestral and chamber music.

In their new project THE CORTEX OF INHARMONIC RELATIONSHIPS, the trio presents a video work that is both visible to the audience and serves as a score for the musicians. With an analog video synthesizer, the image level is generated directly from the audio material of the trio. The different signals from the instruments affect different aspects of the video image. While the high-frequency radio signals can be interpreted directly as video signals and translated into images, the instrumental signals modulate genuinely synthesized image fragments. As in the auditory level, feedback processes and filtering catalyze image generation. Conversely, the video signals are used and processed as audio material.

The concert is part of the Month of Contemporary Music Berlin.
