*Journey there. Immersia. There is time enough. Observe
the outlines of this place. See its complexities. Descend.
A voice will say, “Those days are gone.” It is a significant
moment. The light is changing. Outside it is winter.
Always winter.


Immersia is a celebration of the immersive experience and
the poetry of singular focus. The edition will feature a
performance and an installation across two spaces, each
structured around Immersia, a glacial, filmic suite of ambient
electronica by Irish composer Linda Buckely, recently
released on Ergodos Records.

Vocalist, and regular Ergodos collaborator, Michelle O’Rourke
will perform a set of slow-burning, introspective works for
voice and electronics, ranging from a setting of an ancient
Scottish curse by Enda Bates to lush and nostalgic
soundscapes by Benedict Schlepper-Connolly and Garrett
Sholdice. Each movement of Linda Buckley’s Immersia will
serve as an interlude, returning the performance to a state
of frozen calm.

The accompanying installation will feature a black box space
where a half hour’s worth of audio and film by Benedict
Schlepper-Connolly, Jonathan Nangle and Linda Buckley will
run on loop. The audience are invited to stay for the full
duration, to stop, concentrate and allow the heart-rate to
slow. Outside, in the main space, a gentle ambience will be
maintained by low-volume audio by Clive Wilkinson and
Garrett Sholdice.

*The Ergodos Quarterly Edition @ LEAP, Berlin
Dublin-based production company and record label Ergodos
and LEAP (Lab for Electronic Arts and Performance) Berlin
are delighted to announce the start of an ongoing
collaborative relationship, which will manifest itself primarily
in a quarterly “edition” at the Alexanderplatz space.
Ergodos will curate a weekend’s worth of events four times
a year, each one built around a particular theme, and
featuring performances, installations and presentations
concerned with theoretical aspects of sonic arts practices.
Central curatorial concerns include the showcasing of work
by a pool of distinctive and exciting Irish composers, sound
artists and performers, creative exchange and collaboration
with local artists and performers, and accessible and
intelligent dialogue around sonic arts practices.
