Kiezsalon opening with the Berlin premieres of Miguel Noya and Finlay Shakespeare.
Dear friends and music lovers,
After an unimaginable start to the year, we are happy and relieved to warmly invite you to our first Kiezsalon of 2020. The season begins with the Berlin premiere of Venezuelan electronica pioneer Miguel Noya and Bristol synth builder Finlay Shakespeare.
Venezuelan composer and live electronic music pioneer Miguel Noya attended Berklee College and MIT, where he gained degrees in Electronic Music & Digital Sound Synthesis, before embarking on a vibrant and esteemed musical career. Influenced by 70s synthesizer music, his landmark album Gran Sabana, released independently in 1984, is most reminiscent of Kraftwerk and space synth.
The edgy synth pop and art-rock music of Finlay Shakespeare is an homage to the likes of Depeche Mode and The Human League, melded into Talking Heads style art-pop records. After an array of releases under the moniker Future Image - his new material adds vocals and a decidedly more pop edge. Listen to Routine from his 2019 debut album 'Domestic Economy', released on Editions Mego.
Please be aware that for the reopening of Kiezsalon, the safety of our guests is the top priority. The format of the event and venue arrangements have been adapted to maximize safety, and we have created a strict Kiezsalon hygiene and safety policy for the event.
