Host Hanna Bächer speaks to Anna Homler and Steven Warwick about Homler's Breadwoman project during a public session at Red Bull Studios Berlin.
Anna Homler is a Los Angeles-based vocal, visual, and performance artist and the co-creator of the 1980s project, Breadwoman. By singing in an improvised melodic language, she explores alternative means of communication and illuminates the poetry in the ordinary. Homler first became known as a vocalist in the context of her Breadwoman collaboration and 1985 cassette release with electronic musician Steve Moshier. Thirty years later, the music still stands out, and was recently re-issued on vinyl by RVNG international.
For her CTM 2016 appearance, she is joined by visual artist and musician Steven Warwick, who’s multidisciplinary work invites the interaction of objects and media within an immersive environment. In his dance music project Heatsick (which appeared at CTM 2013), he sends a solitary Casio through a myriad of effects, looping up coarse, crisp, and twinkling out-house music into wonderfully queasy eternity. He teases out melodic and rhythmic mantras to an off-kilter, Burroughsian effect that wins on the floor and never forgets to be lo-fi fun(k).
Steven Warwick is an artist, musician, and writer living and working in Berlin. His practice is paradigmatic of an interdisciplinary approach that encompasses theatre-making and DJing along with art, music, and writing. His work is disseminated on a multitude of platforms including records, galleries, nightclubs, publications, and the internet.
Steven Warwick is a British artist, musician and writer residing in Berlin. His practice includes durational performance installations, plays and films using the construction of situations and language. He also makes music as Heatsick and under his own name – the latest release, Nadir, appeared recently on PAN.
Anna Homler is a Los Angeles-based vocal, visual, and performance artist and the co-creator of the 1980s project, Breadwoman. Her work employs a sensibility both ancient and postmodern. By singing in an improvised melodic language, she explores alternative means of communication and illuminates the poetry in the ordinary.
