Electronic music producer, visual and installation artist Grischa Lichtenberger from raster-noton, one of the most internationally relevant labels of electronic music, presents at L.E.V. Matadero his album KAMILHAN; il y a péril en la demeure, the conclusion of a 5-part work cycle which was initiated with LA DEMEURE; il y a péril en la demeure in 2015 and continued with the 3-part EP spielraum, allgegenwart, strahlung in 2016.

In contrast to the first part of the series, which tried to trace the other in the intimacy of private space (the residence, la demeure), Lichtenberger now focuses on the ambivalence between crisis and social reinsurance from an art’s perspective, which he embodies with musical material that on the one hand seems unwieldy and subversive, on the other hand idiosyncratically grooving and encouraging to nod. The focus is on songs featuring computer-generated voices that sing in a language that remains incomprehensible. Fragmented from english syllables and reassembled into cryptic pop songs. “Crooked ballads”, as Lichtenberger calls them.
