Kaparte Promotions presents:

With the project “Soundscapes” (born within an Arbeit curated live series with same name), Jochen Arbeit (of EINSTÜRZENDE NEUBAUTEN and Die Haut), Paul Beauchamp, Fabrizio Modonese Palumbo and Julia Kent (the trio known as Blind Cave Salamander) pursue the task and challenge of exchanging the results of their own sound researches in a public space.

What is important is the moment of the spontaneous meeting of different systems of soundscaping, independent from each other. The results will gonna be unpredictable, unique and temporary.
