* Sonae presents her new album »I Started Wearing Black« that celebrates release April 13th on Berlin based Label Monika Enterprise.  “What are the ghosts of this music? It rustles, crackles, ruffles, crunches, rattles, scrapes, sometimes a beat emerges from the constant noise, sometimes an obscure voice mumbles incomprehensibly, sometimes a melancholy piano figure is prevented by this noise from coming too much to the foreground. It definitely is eerie” 
Sonae is a producer, performing artist and DJ for experimental electronic music, part of label collective Monika Werkstatt. Debut album 2015 on Monika Enterprise (Berlin). Graduated masterstudent of Folkwang University of Arts (Essen), Artist in Residence af Kraftwerk-studio Klingklang (Düsseldorf), scholarship for Max/MSP summer class at CCRMA of Stanford University (USA).

* Sabrina Gricourt (1988 – Bordeaux, France) studied at the conservatory of electro-acoustic music and contemporary dance in France. She is a self taught sound artist who has trained in sound therapy, energy healing and shamanic practice. She is the founder of Sonic Body a holistic sound healing project. She holds groups ceremonies in Berlin and Leipzig. Sabrina uses media in order to create a field of contact where people are able to get in touch to a larger world of perception. Identity, senses, timelessness, contemporary global political issues and her exposure to a diversity in ethnic cultures are the core of her researches and creations. In various experimental ways, she explores the possibilities offered by manipulating real sounds and revealing some of their microscopic innards. The sonic landscapes created through her own recorded sounds, drones, bass frequencies, gong and tibetan bowls invite us to a full sensory experimentation. Her work is developed with an ongoing concern for our relationship with the space and vastness of the world and with nature itself. Manipulating the patterns of time with the view to lose control and leave room to fully allow space to envelop our senses for a full reconnection to the present and our origins.

Van der Putten’s travel to Berlin is made possible with the support of CBK Rotterdam (Centre for Visual Arts Rotterdam).
