Japan’s Midori Hirano is a classically trained pianist who has been living and working in Berlin since 2008. Aside from the 3 albums that she has already released under her own name, she also composes music for film, video-installations and dance performances.
Her most recent album arrived in the summer of 2016 on the Sonic Pieces label. It is an album full of wonderful, layered compositions in which a beautiful balance is found between electronica, acoustic instruments and field-recordings.
Benoît Pioulard is the alter-ego of American songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, writer and photographer Thomas Meluch. He brought out his many releases himself or on renowned labels like Kranky , Type and Morr Music.
In his compositions, he effortless switches from wonderful, acoustic-guitar accompanied electro-acoustic folk through to static noise driven ambient. Pioulard’s work is characterized by the dark, melancholy undertone that he always manages to conjure up.
Admittance is free of charge according to the principle of ‘first come, first served.’’
