As part of the multi-year project Nusasonic, which aims to strengthen the networks of contemporary experimental sound and music cultures in Southeast Asia, Europe and beyond, Berlin-based Jessica Ekomane and Cairo’s Nadah El Shazly take part in a residency program in Yogyakarta. Hosted by Nusasonic-partner Yes No Klub during their stay from July to September 2019, both artists will research on Indonesian traditional and contemporary music, learn about current cultural and artistic practices through discussions and workshops with local artists and communities, and produce new works.
In collaboration with and funded by Musicboard Berlin, Berlin-based artist Laure Boer is hosted by WSK festival in Manila for a residency stay from September to October 2019. With collaborative exchanges with local artists as the core of the program, the process-based residency culminates in a presentation at the 10-year edition of WSK festival.
An initiative of Goethe-Institut, Nusasonic – Crossing Aural Geographies is collaboratively created between Yes No Klub (Yogyakarta), WSK Festival for the Recently Possible (Manila), Playfreely/BlackKaji (Singapore), and CTM Festival (Berlin).
