beyond beyond is a temporal space for sound to meet different surfaces and contexts. surfaces that listen, absorb and reflect.
what is told, what is heard, what activates active listening?
through varied sonic approaches and engagements, a listener asks, “what is beyond beyond?”

PLAGUE! by Mars Dietz
“Show me a plague, and I’ll show you the world!” Larry Kramer exclaimed in one of his final pieces written before his death on this day last year. Kramer spoke, wrote, and shouted about AIDS and against AIDS stigma for nearly his entire life. He railed against denial - denial of illness, denial of death, and the denial of the very responsibility that comes with our sheer proximity to one another. He knew that our porosity is as deadly as it is vital, that intimacy is holy because it can kill you. He begged us all to act like it. Plague! is a live set that works with publicly available recordings of Larry Kramer’s voice to create sound compositions that sustain his ever prescient message from one pandemic to another. Using synthesizers. found audio and field recordings in emotional and musical arrangements, Plague! soundtracks the grief that is the wellspring of love, and the love that is the source of grief.

Mars Dietz is an artist, composer and DJ from Brooklyn, living in Berlin, Germany. Their hybrid background involves club DJing, writing, multi-channel audio installation, and live performance in an intensively research-driven practice bent on historical analysis. Mars frequently collaborates with Berlin-based choreographers as a sound designer and occasional co-author.

mess and mass: dispersion of subjectivity by Hacklander/Hatam
Elusive efforts towards a realization of dynamic autonomy in order to achieve eventual practical implementation of meta-jurisprudence. (The intelligent always remain uncertain.)
Interested in the depth of radical material heteronomy and the self as highly constructible and therefore de-constructible, Hacklander / Hatam create powerful and moving works based on sound.

With a background in molecular biology, Farahnaz Hatam is a sound artist, composer and specialist DJ who works primarily with SuperCollider, a platform for audio synthesis and algorithmic composition. Colin Hacklander is an avant-garde percussionist, drummer and composer, with a background in post-tonal theory and electronic music.
