De Player presents: Braublff 1 with Magnus Haglund, Adachi Tomomi & Alessandro Bosetti

BRAUBLFF is a series of live events organised by DE PLAYER in collaboration with KRAAK. Where and how does language transform into music? A possible answer: the point where language loses its meaning and becomes pure matter, by repetition, mutation and deconstruction. BRAUBLFF brings together contemporary vocal poets and text-sound composers with the pioneering work of the avant-garde since the 1950s.

Conversa II at Upominki

Conversas is a series of informal meetings made so that we can get to know and discuss projects and interests. Starting from the 2nd of April, and during the ten following weeks, every Wednesday at Upominki three Conversadores (those who talk at Conversas) will share something with the gathered group, for thirty minutes each. Yet as the title Conversas (Conversations in Portuguese) suggests itself, the events aim at an equal set up from which both - the Conversadores and the group, should be able to profit.
