With a collective baggage spanning performances at cultural mainstays the likes of Mutek Montréal, Transmediale Berlin, Centre Pompidou, ICA London, MUAC Mexico, Secret Solstice Festival, Contemporary Art Ruhr, Le Carreau du Temple, Contemporary Art Center Singapore, Mutek Mexico, Athens’ Goethe Institute and Mexico Fonoteca National, multinational Berlin-based interdisciplinary collective Oqko gear up to celebrate their first year of existence with a showcase in one of Berlin’s experimental music hospots, Berghain Kantine.

The night begins with guests Silent People, who deconstruct rhythm and modern jazz, fusing together electronics, live drums and the sound of silence. Icelandic producer Astvaldur will follow up with an AV presentation of his upcoming LP ‘At Least’, blending orthodox club atmospheres and defined visual arts.

DEKJ’s performance channels mutating sonic presence, deforming localization and resonance into a disorientating multichannel sonic assault. Precise rhythmic and warm atmospheres dominate Lvis Mejía collaborative performance with cellist Simon Houghton. The Mexican artist will reveal excerpts from his upcoming album ‘Æon’ over the course of his live set, blending electronics, improvisation and the accoustic elements of the cello.

The live of Frenchman Smog captures raw, synthetic explorations, navigating between ethereal soundscapes, distorted metallic noise and fluttering overtones. Final guest Carne will bring the night to a close with a DJ set, bridging gaps between bass, electro and hard techno.

Following the event, Oqko will embark on a Mexican tour, with solo performances and the presentation of their collaborative electro-acoustic project [haptal]. Further dates in France, Iceland and Greece are soon be announced.
