Soundstudio is the name of Carsten Nicolai’s class for art and audio at the reknown Städelschule in Frankfurt a.M. In a continuous flow, alternating between live and DJ-performances, students of the class – Alan B. Brock-Richmond, Lars Becker, Christin Berg, Philipp Bergmann, Banjee Boi, PP38, Daniel Stempfer, Franziska von Stenglin, Jol Thomson, Alexander Tillegreen, Ellen Yeon Kim, Anna Susanna Woof-Dwight – will bring music to the WAU restaurant/bar on the ground floor of the HAU2 building, cycling through a wealth of various genres and styles, and ranging from acoustic and semiacoustic moments of voices, violin and guitars to laptop based, purely electronic passages and DJsets.
Audio-visual artist Carsten Nicolai, cofounder of raster-noton, uses names Alva Noto, Noto, and Aleph-1 for works that cross the spectrums of music production, live performance, sound art, sculpture, video, and curation. Nicolai’s work emphasizes processes and working methodologies, the intersections of art and science, and the tensions between polarities.
