KEIV ATHENS 17-19 SEPTEMBER | Krama Festival
Krama is a music festival aiming to present a new outlook within the Athenian independent music scene, bringing together free improvisation with experimental electronic and contemporary classical music. To realise this idea, Krama invites music acts across borders to perform and explore their commonalities through an alternative aesthetic discourse. Krama activates new resonances between independent artists and groups from across Athens and Europe. This year, in the light of the current circumstances, Krama Festival will take the form of a 3-day sound installation exhibition in collaboration with UN P R 18T (Un.Processed Realities). ‘Krama’ sound system designed especially for Krama Festival 2020. It visualizes the values and ideas of the festival. The sculpture appears as a dyadic operator. The minimalist metal structure as a divine, totemic form is immobilized and frozen in time. Geometric and strict it reflects the stability and robustness found in a work based on rules and structures. On the contrary, its organic form is in constant movement, and seems to transform in time and space. Its need is to enter dynamically, and transfigure the archaic structure with intuition as its guide. This hybrid being out of these two principles will express its existence through speech and music. inox, ceramic, plaster, paper clay, wood clay, wood, bioplastic, recycled polystyrene
