ABRA Ensemble (Israel)
vocal quartet
members: Chanan Ben Simon, Faye Shapiro,
Noa Haran, Yifeat Ziv

Elisabetta Lanfredini (Italy/Berlin)
solo - voice and devices


ABRA is a vocal performance ensemble led cooperatively by its four members,
vocalists/composers Chanan Ben Simon, Noa Haran, Yifeat Ziv and Faye Shapiro.
The name ABRA comes from the Aramaic phrase “ABRA KA DABRA” - “I shall create
what I speak” –  a potent spell that grants power of creation to the vocal act of speaking…
Through the art of improvisation, ABRA expands the existing limits between experimental
virtuoso vocal expression and  the  immediate   accessible   human encounter with the audience.
As an ensemble of composers, ABRA draws from various musical and artistic backgrounds:
different ethnic vocal traditions, American minimalism, modern avant-garde, popular music and
common speech of daily life.
Throughout the two years of its existence, ABRA has performed at a wide range of venues and
spaces, each time creating works that relate to the specific spatial, acoustic and historical conditions.


ELISABETTA LANFREDINI is a singer, performer and educator living between Italy, Istanbul
and Berlin. She started music studies in early age studying jazz singing and improvisation.
She deepened the western vocal technique studying barocco singing for two years and she
studied several folk traditional music like Dhrupad singing (North Indian Music), Nada and
Mantra Yoga (Yoga of the sound), kurdish Dengbej style and turkish folk music. Beside the live
activity she made several field researches in Italy about folk traditional music and oral poetry
(Ottava Rima), she realised video documentaries and several articles.
Her repertoire and her style is now fully opened to both improvised and traditional music.
She developed her on style in a music that is always on the edge between the old traditions and
contemporary arts; in her singing you can always hear the echoes of folk tunes but at the same time
she lives the stage like a performance involved improvisation, poetry and literature, spoken voice
and special analogue projections the she makes.

of these sounds speak to something bigger: of being slowly, gently,
and thoroughly worn away.

special event – quiet cue #151

an experimental video/sound/drawing workshop project
under the direction of Heidrun Schramm and Nicolas Wiese

Exhibition at Quiet Cue:
22nd February 3PM–8PM / 23rd February 10AM–2PM

Zusammen mit 40 Schüler*innen der Jahrgangsstufe 6 des Dathe-Gymnasiums in
Friedrichshain haben wir Graffiti aus einer anderen Perspektive betrachtet und in einen
neuen gestalterischen Kontext gestellt: das grafische Prinzip des tags und die daraus
inspirierten eigenen Schriftzeichen sind die Grundlage für unsere Struktur-Zeichnungen
und Animations-Video-Produktion. In Verbindung mit einfachen, teilweise rhythmischen
Sound-Kompositionen wird in diesem multimedialen Workshop die individuelle Handschrift
zum Hauptakteur im selbst vertonten Film.




Die Kinder entwerfen ihre eigenen, aus ihrer Handschrift abgeleiteten tags, entwickeln
Variationen, es werden Versionen am Computer ausgeschnitten, vervielfältigt, eingefärbt
und im Bildraum umherwandern gelassen.
Auch mittels Stop-Motion-Technik entstanden kurze Bildsequenzen für erste zeitbasierte
Kompositionen. Zudem produzieren wir mit den Kindern Soundcollagen aus zuvor
aufgenommenen Alltagsklängen, Schreib- u. Kritzelgeräuschen und Aufnahmen der
eigenen Stimme.
Wir experimentieren mit Bild-/Ton-Rhythmus und Verdichtung, als Resultat von
Wiederholungsmustern u. dynamischen Kombinationen.

Mit besonderem Dank an Dr. Petra Jurgasch.

Das Projekt wurde ermöglicht durch den Berliner Projektfonds für kulturelle Bildung

exhibition open on Monday 8th Sep: 2pm–8pm  

Jocelyn Robert:
»Four Videos«
I am interested in singularities. Most of my work in the last twenty years explores paths
that lead in this direction. The pieces shown at Quiet Cue are the result of the rebuilding
in video pictures of specific moments in time, re-presenting their singularity.
The older piece, Kyoto, shows an encounter that could have been, were it for a few
seconds of delay; the most recent piece, Blue Empire New-York Babel Billboard,
reconstructs Andy Warhol's Empire movie half a century later, looking through
what has become our most common window to the world.

Jocelyn Robert is an interdisciplinary artist from Québec. He works in a variety of media:
sound, performance, installation, music, computer art and writing.
Trained first as an architect (1984), Jocelyn Robert left architecture for art around 1988.
First involved in audio art, his work soon took an interdiscplinary direction and he ended up
working with different media and within a variety of contexts.
He released a first solo LP in 1988 on ReR Records (London), went on to publish over
15 solo recordings and took part in numerous collaborations (with artists Daniel Jolliffe,
Louis Ouellet, Laetitia Sonami, Michael Snow, etc) and compilations. He also made
site-specific sound works, performances and radio projects. He showed is visual art works,
videos and installations in many countries, notably in Canada, United-States, Australia,
Chile, Mexico, Germany and France. His video installation «L’Invention des Animaux»
was awarded First Prize, Image Category, at the Berlin Transmediale in 2002. He was
also given Prix du Rayonnement International from Conseil de la Culture de Québec
in 2006, Prix Videre in 2009, and numerous grants from different funding agencies.
His work has been shown in a number of publications, notably in a major solo catalogue
by Galerie de l’UQAM, in Montréal in 2005. He is the founder of the audio art centre
Avatar, in Quebec City, has taught at Mills College (California) and UQAM (Montreal)
and is currently director of Ecole des arts visuels de l’Université Laval.

Carl Stone:
FUJIKEN was composed between 2012 and 2013 in Tokyo where I reside for much
of the year. The work blends field recordings made through Southeast Asia (Vietnam,
Thailand, Cambodia and Japan) with appropriated music mostly from street cassettes,
processed and resynthesized. The work has no set structure and although some sections
have been more or less determined as to their materials and methods of manipulation,
the overall form as well as the smaller musical details are open and improvised. Field
materials tonight might include recorded meandering on the Chao Praya river (Bangkok),
a fire outbreak in Phnom Pehn, college sports practice in Toyota City Japan, and whatever
else the mood might seek.

Carl Stone is one of the pioneers of live computer music, and has been hailed by
the Village Voice as "the king of sampling." and "one of the best composers living in
(the USA) today." He has used computers in live performance since 1986. Stone was born
in Los Angeles and now divides his time between San Francisco and Japan. He studied
composition at the California Institute of the Arts with Morton Subotnick and James Tenney
and has composed electro-acoustic music almost exclusively since 1972. His works have
been performed in the U.S., Canada, Europe, Asia, Australia, South America and the Near
East. In addition to his schedule of performance, composition and touring, he is on the
faculty of the Department of Media Engineering at Chukyo University in Japan.
