As part of Soundwalk Collective’s “Transmissions” series, Lyra Pramuk performs a site-specific, neo-psychedelic curing ritual: auratic, emotional and sensual. Her sounds are built from liquified vocals and mystical electronics, offering transcendental qualities that exceed the pure listening-experience. Pramuk’s take on ancient folk music and spirituality is driven by the desire to explore the healing potentials of music. She fuses classical vocalism, pop sensibilities, performance practices and contemporary club culture, investigating the relation between technology and humanity and a post-human, non-binary understanding of life.
The performance takes place in the intimate inner room of the Reethaus, where Pramuk will debut a new live set accompanied by Jules Reidy on electric guitar and Dylan Kerr on flutes, bells, Shruti box and voice. Embracing the spirit of improvisation, the program integrates unreleased tracks with spoken poetry alongside original songs spatialized for our 4DSOUND system programmed in partnership with MONOM.
The performance will be followed by a moderated conversation between Lyra Pramuk and her frequent collaborator, synth virtuoso Caterina Barbieri. Light food and drinks will be served over the course of the evening.
Composed and arranged entirely from the sound of her own voice, “Fountain,” Lyra’s acclaimed debut on Bedroom Community, was hailed by The Quietus as “a potent religious text in praise of human vocality’s promise.” Her forthcoming compilation “Delta” showcases a global interpretation of “Fountain”’s psyche, through reworking, recomposing, and reconstructing the source material, projecting them through the many lenses of her colleagues and collaborators.
