On the occasion of the first event of our 2020, we invite you to a listening session made of four performances.
Driven by the various attitudes of the artists involved, "KlammKlang Exports" try to stimulate our deepest feelings, exploring the territories included between dream and reality thanks to the use of different tools and different languages.

Impossible Territories is a Moscow-based research and performance art project run by Julia Sharifullina, a clinical psychologist and educator who co-runs the Klammklang label. The project is dedicated to the exploration of psychoacoustic, psychogeographical and audible phenomena found in heterotopias both inside and outside one's imagination.www.klammklang.ru
After his 2017’s debut EP for Hyperdub, ‘Creature’, which was a taut, evocative suite of beatless, almost neo-classical electronics, on Daniele Mana's last album ‘Seven Steps Behind’ we find his music has caught an alien virus and started hallucinating. It sounds like musical world-building rather than straight forward song writing. Here the borders between reality and the weird have collapsed on each other, and with each listen through its zigzagging course, you’re rewarded by its strange twists and turns.During his impro session at Cripta747, he will play with your sense of time in his mostly drum-free hall of mirrors, pulling from minimalism, chamber music, dark jazz, and synthesiser experiments: listening to him will be like stepping into a dream, with all the curious emotions and buried meaning that involves.https://mana1.bandcamp.com/album/seven-steps-behind
Stas Sharifullin, also known as HMOT, is a Siberian-born, Moscow-based artist working with sound. He studied Linguistics at Siberian Federal University, where he obtained his Candidate of Sciences degree in 2013. With his works he has participated in various festivals and art biennials like Manifesta, CTM, Ural Industrial Biennale, Unsound and many more. Since 2019, he heads the Sound Art sub-department at the HSE Art & Design School, after having worked at the Research Unit of the National Center for Contemporary Arts in Moscow.Sedatephobia is a live electronic composition that investigates the audible triggers of fear and horror using a wide range of synthetic sound objects: natural, organic and paralinguistic sounds imitated through physical modelling algorithms and various methods of synthesis. The name refers to the fear of silence – a phobia which puts the subject into anxiety that usually derives from traumatic experience in the past. It draws on the endangered dialects and folklore of internally displaced people who left their villages in the valley of Siberian river Angara, which were burned to the ground and flooded in the sake of the Boguchany Dam construction in 2012-2013. In this case silence is a metaphor for the gradual disappearance of languages and traditions of those whose homes are now buried underwater. The composition is commissioned by V-A-C Foundation and to be presented at Palazzo delle Zattere Venice in January 2020. Special thanks to prof. Olga Felde, PhD, for granting access to numerous interviews, recordings and other audio and linguistic data collected during her field research.www.hmot.club
