Already before starting the label, Monique organized unregular concerts in Berlin, including one night at ausland on Feb 20th, 2009. With this in mind, we can´t think of a better date and place to start off Sonic Pieces´ 10th anniversary year. Exactly 10 years later, on Feb 20th, 2019 we return to ausland. For this evening we present 3 duo performances by Berlin-based Sonic Pieces artists who have never performed together before :
Jasmine Guffond & Erik K Skodvin
Midori Hirano & Christoph Berg
+ introduction by
Monique Recknagel & F.S.Blumm
Rrose Sélavy presents a Miasmah & Sonic Pieces End of Year Concert : Clarice Jensen & Rauelsson - Arkaoda (Berlin, DE)
To celebrate the closing of the year, Miasmah & Sonic Pieces are having a collective evening at Arkaoda on December 5th. We are happy to present some of the artists we´ve been working with during this year.
Clarice Jensen is coming all the way from New York together with Jonathan Turner to perform an A/V show based around her latest album "For this from that will be filled" (Miasmah). Sonic Pieces artist Rauelsson will play his second ever Berlin show and presents his latest album "Mirall". He will perform together with Christoph Berg on violin and Tatu Rönkkö on percussion. To top this off, both label owners Monique Recknagel & Erik K Skodvin as well as Jasmine Guffond will play records up and downstairs for the evening.
Emőke Csoma (Sound of Stockholm) & Monique Recknagel (Sonic Pieces) will discuss all things Sonic Pieces, the challenges of running an independent music label in Berlin and how to stand out as an artist within such a niche market.
Clarice Jensen will be out tour with the band “This Will Destroy You” as support for their US dates this November. For more info go to her website here

Rrose Sélavy + Miasmah presents : Christina Vantzou & Francesco Donadello + Ellicist - Ausland (Berlin, DE)
The long going Rrose Sélavy series initiated by Miasmah in collaboration with several other local and visiting labels, has been setting up shows and dj events under the rader since 2011. This evening at ausland will be a possibility to see two improvising duo acts that either rarely or never before performed live. Although based mostly on electronic instrumentation, the sounds this evening will border on the organic, atmospheric and surreal. CHRISTINA VANTZOU, residing in Brussels and known amongst others for her albums on Kranky, stops by Berlin to play a duo set with sound magician and VOX-TON studio co-director FRANCESCO DONADELLO in only their 3rd performance together. On the other side, ELLICIST, a new duo by Driftmachine´s Florian Zimmer (DE) together with sound experimentalist and instrument builder Thomas Chousos (GR) perform live for the first time this evening. We´re excited to be able to collaborate with Ausland for this special event.
