In the 17th issue of zweikommasieben something that has been apparent from the beginning of the magazine—whose credo is to study the present—only seems increasingly true: in the supposed present, temporalities overlap and intersect. They burst out, reaching at once backwards and forwards.

The magazine features interviews with John Maus about the six years between the release of his last two albums, with Anna Sagström and Daniel Iinatti of Country Music discussing accelerationist force of globalization or with Alessandro Cortini on the private retrospective of 1970s Italy in Avanti. In those conversations the nature of time shows itself as enigmatic, fragmented and displaced.

On top, this issue features interviews with Anna Homler, Errorsmith, Further Reductions, Gabber Eleganza, Jasss, Ossia, Peter Rehberg and Renick Bell; conversations with Russell Haswell and between Christoph Fringeli, Simon Crab and Nigel Ayers; a portrait on Mmodemm; an essay by DeForrest Brown Jr.; columns on gender in dancehall (“Basslines”), authenticity of field recordings (“Track Down Fiction”), pictures from Georg Gatsas (“We Are Time”) as well as poetry with “Sound Texts”; and contributions by Angoisse, Ipek Gorung & Ceramic TL and Jay Glass Dubs.

In zweikommasieben #17, the nature of time also shows itself in the design—a design initially looking for an aesthetic of speed but ultimately as much a reflection of pausing as of deceleration and acceleration. And in this attempt to give form to time, there’s also the primordial-musical moment.

HOW DO WE MAKE A WE
BOOK LAUNCH AND A PERFORMANCE BY KARL HOLMQVIST
09.06.2018

Please join us on Saturday June 9th from 7 till 9 PM at Motto Berlin for the book launch of How do We make a We, a publication that grew out of the Ratti Foundation’s XXIII CSAV artists’ research laboratory  Language and Sound as Sculpture held in Como, Italy, in the summer of 2017.

 

Designed by Claudia de la Torre and Gregorio Magnani in collaboration with the participants , the publication reflects on the experiences shared at the laboratory and on its overall theme. Through individual and collaborative contributions it investigates how sound, performance and language may become tools in the creation  of a ‘we’ that is both capable of agency and in a continuous process of dismantling itself and of an ‘I’ that is always at war with itself.

 

The XXIII CSAV was : Lorenzo Benedetti, Hannah Black, Isaac Contreras, Michael Dean, Claudia de la Torre, Kiah Endelman Music, Hugo Esquinca, Romain Grateau, Russel Haswell, Karl Holmqvist, Doris Hardeman, Marine Julie’, Annett Kottek, Youngjae Lih, Gregorio Magnani, Jan Moszumanski Kotwica, Annie Ratti, Natalia Rebelo, Sara Rodrigues, Alex Turgeon,Titus Wonsey and Giulia Zabarella

Performance by Karl Holmqvist 8 PM sharp.
