Rashad Becker with Fia Fiell

MONO X Liquid Architecture

In partnership with Room40 and Liquid Architecture, the IMA presents an evening with Berlin-based composer and musician Rashad Becker.

Recent works include the cycle Traditional Music Of Notional Species released across two volumes on PAN, and a multi-part work called Based On A True Story that derives scores from historical occurrences in a sort of ‘sonic staging’. Becker is currently commissioned by New York-based ensemble Alarm Will Sound and Berlin string ensemble Kaleidoskop.

Becker is mainly active as a solo artist but finds himself in a series of permanent collaborations alongside Eli Keszler, Moritz von Oswald and as a member of the formation Moleglove. Other and more sporadic collaborators include Okkyung Lee, Andre Vida, Ashley Paul, and Valerio Tricoli.

Becker will be joined by Melbourne-based electronic musician Fia Fiell. Heavily influenced by musical romanticism, minimalism, jazz, noise and drone as well as the rhythms and movements of the natural world, Fia Fiell, aka Carolyn Schofield often explores meditative, emotive and subtly-shifting sonic landscapes in her music, using improvisation as a basis for her compositions and live performances.

This is a ticketed event with limited capacity. Reserve your free place via Eventbrite here.

[Becker’s] compositions are multilayered narratives populated by an ensemble of sonic entities. Often there’s a tragic-comical touch, like a cartoon version of what could be a requiem from a dream (or just as much a fertility dance from another dimension).” Liquid Architecture

“Becker’s deft manipulation of the oddball sounds he creates allows him to elevate what could have been hazy sketches into the realm of high art”—The Quietus
