MINI Fuzarka!

Fuzarka Festival - Latinamerica in focus

We are a group of people from different parts of "Latinamérica", some of us are living in Berlin, and some are spread around the world. We got together because we wanted to organize a festival that would visibilize different forms of expression, allow us to meet each other, show each other, think and rethink certain things about the posicion we are in. We want to share what we do and take advantage of what ever arises from those intentions.

Most of all we want to meet up, exchange ideas, knowledge, empowerment, discussions and party.

This DIY-festival will take place on the first weekend of August in Raumerweiterungsalle , Berlin.

The program consists of workshops, performances, exibitions, debates, zines/publications, food and…. party!

For all the activities you can contribute by donation with what you can. And if you don't have money you are welcome.

Warum wir so gefährlich waren. Geschichten eines inoffiziellen Gedenkens
filmscreening mit Bettina Dziggel und Marinka Körzendörfer

Im Dokumentarfilm „Warum wir so gefährlich waren. Geschichten eines inoffiziellen Gedenkens“ erzählen vier Frauen von den zahlreichen Versuchen der Ostberliner Gruppe Lesben in der Kirche (LiK), von 1984-1986 an den Gedenkveranstaltungen im ehemaligen Frauenkonzentrationslager in Ravensbrück teilzunehmen. Die Lesbengruppe widmete sich u.a. in den 1980er Jahren dem Anliegen, das Schicksal von im NS verfolgten lesbischen Frauen sichtbar zu machen und ihnen öffentlich zu gedenken. Der DDR-Staat reagierte mit Repression.

Switch Vinyl DJ Bootcamp with Killa & The Neighborhood Character

Vinyl (Analog): A 3-day in depth workshop for novice and intermediate participants.



Day 1 will consist of a brief technical overview, an introduction to mixing fundamentals: turntable setup, selection, cueing, listening etc.

Day 2 will be a continuation of day 1, and focus on participants developing knowledge and ability to listen selectively, beatmatch, work with pitch, and EQing tracks.

On Day 3, participants will pair up as DJ duos to perform their skills in a live showcase and have the option to record a short mixtape together or individually, that will be shared through the SWITCH Mixcloud page, and amongst other friends and participants. Each day we will open the space for practice time outside of the hours of instruction.

facilitators: KILLA and The Neighbourhood Character; for 8 participants

**Please note that each workshop has a limited number of available places. We’ll have a waiting list if necessary, and ask you to please only sign up if you can really commit or let us know ahead of time if you need to drop out, so we can pass on your spot to someone else**

To sign up, send an email with a few lines about yourself to - switchworkshops@gmail.com - you will then receive a detailed schedule and further instructions.

SWITCH is a workshop series that aims to centralize (not exclusively) and empower women, people of color, gender non-conforming folks and queers through accessible music education.

Through these workshops, we hope to establish a culture of engaging participatory and multivocal approaches to sharing and spreading knowledg(es) of electronic music and electronic sound art and performance within a DIY setting, thus encouraging self-empowerment among DIY, up-and-coming, and semi-professional emerging artists.

With time and resources, we see these efforts bridging analog and digital music performance cultures, providing knowledges of both forms and their potential overlaps.

Switch Noisemakers Camp - From Circuits to Coding

A 4-day in depth workshop, with Rehab Hazgui, Ayoka Green, 6zm and T Blank that will cover both analogue and digital technologies in sound synthesis and manipulation.



Day 1 - Azki Punk Console: The first day will be based on an experimental acoustic approach, where participants will be guided through the design and production of a DIY voltage-controlled oscillator. During this day, participants will be asked to build their own electronic instruments, experiment with analog control interfaces, play together and take their own console with them. Participants will familiarize themselves with basic electronic tools, soldering irons and multimeters.

Day 2 - Sound of Light: With the new gained skills about electronics we will create different light sensitive electronic instruments on a more experimental level on the second day. Participants will learn to build and modify circuits of light controlled oscillators and experiment with solar panels as musical instruments.

Day 3 - Human-Interface Devices as Controllers: The third day aims at bringing a foundation-al insight about audio programming and using non-musical controllers (joysticks, sensors) to control/generate audible features. We will practice programming basic sound-synthesis methods and building custom audio/midi effects on Ableton Live using Max4Live. Participants will be then invited to create a collaborative orchestra by incorporating their Azki Punk Console with HID controllers.

Day 4 - Noisemakers Jam: On the last day of the Noisemakers Camp, we are aiming to combine the analog instruments and digital patches the participants have built on the previous three days. The result will be a collaborative, spatial and interactive sound installation, which will later be showcased publicly on the 27th of July.

For 8 participants. Participation in the workshop is free, although pay-as-you-can / donations are encouraged for material costs for day 1 & 2 as our funding does not cover this.

**Please note that each workshop has a limited number of available places. We’ll have a waiting list if necessary, prioritize those that are new to Switch and ask you to please only sign up if you can really commit or let us know ahead of time if you need to drop out, so we can pass on your spot to someone else**

To sign up, send an email with a line about yourself to - switchworkshops@gmail.com - you will then receive further instructions for application.

das burlebübele mag i net
- bewegte lesben in ost und west berlin
filmscreening mit Sandra Luka Stoll und Anke Schwarz

Anhand zweier Biografien nähert sich die Doku sowohl den Parallelen als auch den Besonderheiten des alltäglichen Lebens und einer politischen Organisierung von zwei Lesben im geteilten Berlin der 70er und 80er Jahre. Nur wenige Kilometer voneinander entfernt kämpften Cristina Perincioli
und Ursula Sillge zur gleichen Zeit als frühe Aktivistinnen für die Rechte von Lesben und Schwulen. Die eine in Westberlin, die andere in Ostberlin. So ähnlich die Ziele der beiden Protagonistinnen auch waren, so unterschiedlich war die jeweilige politische Situation.

DJs:
Eric Oliveira & Slim Soledad - Chernobyl b2b DJ-set
Grace Kelly – world wide dancefloor

... and more delicious surprises…

 A part of the party's profit goes to International Women’s Space.


**********

¡MASH-UP! Multigender / Multiworld is really glad to welcome you again to its summer season in RaumErweiterungsHalle. Israeli queer singer and cellist ILLAY and her band will be playing live some Middle-Eastern up-tempo songs from her album Sabotage. Along with it, there will be a live-act/DJ-set showcase with Brazilian queer-political collective Chernobyl (friends with queer hurricane Linn da Quebrada), bringing some radioactive funk, vogue and house to the dancefloor.

Vive la différence! We are a bunch of people of different nationalities, colours, creeds and backgrounds. We live and love life, diversity, intersections and multiple identities, walking through different spheres at the same time. ¡MASH-UP! – Multigender / Multiworld is a platform to get together, exchange ideas, feel good, have fun and empower transtropical, postcolonial and nonconformist queers and their friends. We dream of a world without borders.


**********

ILLAY

ILLAY comes from Israel, lives in Berlin, and finds inspiration wherever joy encounters melancholy. Cellist and singer ILLAY’s haunting lyrics and unusual compositions create music that invite you to dance as much as to contemplate.

ILLAY’s multi-cultural upbringing, energetic personality and innovative style has led to her recently supporting German singer- songwriter Astrid North, forming and touring with the electroacoustic trio MOJOY, and composing music for dance performances and film soundtracks, including the award-winning Israeli documentary Winding.

ILLAY’s album Sabotage (Oriental indie pop) was released in October 2018. Created in the heart of Tel Aviv, the album includes ILLAY's inner circle of professional musicians who all joined forces to produce the album in a makeshift studio within only a month's time. The result is an engaging mix of melodies sung in English, Hebrew and French, and shaped by Eastern and Western influences that include classical, contemporary, and electronic music. It is full of ethereal and soulful lyrics set to rhythms that embrace pop music, Middle-Eastern disco, West African beats, and much more. All this leads to a creative debut that strikes an interesting balance that is both delicate and powerful, much like the performer herself.

“In [Illay’s] complex compositions and forthright lyrics, she unfolds a parallel world in which one can laugh without forgetting to weep and vice versa.”
TAZ Magazine, Germany

“Her music, at times, borders on the avant garde, making it startling and full of surprises.” 
- Marvin Glenn, Ezra magazine

CHERNOBYL

Chernobyl is meeting.
Chernobyl is party.
Chernobyl is power.
Chernobyl is resistance.
Chernobyl is network building.
Chernobyl is the resignification of our catastrophes.
Chernobyl is also radiation.
 
They are the radioactive elements of contamination of the imposed order. They are the chemical element that will erode the viscera of patriarchy, of normativity, of cisnormativity
they are the Chernobyl movement.
 
Chernobyl is an experimentation in a DJ-set/performance developing from a "cage with green gore". An LGBTQI+ collective from São Paulo, they refer to the city of Chernobyl, in which a nuclear accident occurred, causing many deaths and genetic deformities in several generations of people who lived in its vicinity. In Brazil many people are called Chernobyl as a pejorative term indicating a deformity, being these: queer, tranny fag, fat, black, among other dissenting performativity of the cis heteronormative white pattern.

Eric Oliveira is one of the protagonists of the collective and has already suffered many attacks on their social networks being called Chernobyl reminding that she would have come from a place where her body had gone beyond an acceptable form. The experiment relies precisely on re-naming the name by showing the potential these dissident bodies have over society. The “cage” is basically our bodies that cannot have contact with other people, because they are radioactive forms and in reaching/interacting with the social pattern, ends up contaminating other people in society.
