A Street Called Markt – Listening Session with Geier aus Stahl

01.07.2021, 19:30

Geier aus Stahl is an alias of Vienna based and born musician Leonard Prochazka, whose musical path started by playing the drums in his young age. Drumming is what led the austrian artist to his ongoing passion for splitting time rhythmically and whisch is a recurring topic of his work. To question standardized structures of time and space and to explore autonomy and hierarchy is what guides  Geier aus Stahls musical expression. The outcome of this research is a rather darker sound, that often combines thick dub frequencies and lighter synths and percussion. After Prochazkas several releases he is now part of A Street Called Markt at Frankfurter Kunstverein.

A Street Called Markt is a series of musical performances, that gives a glimpse into the current sphere of experimental music. With Geier aus Stahl (Austria), Cucina Povera (Scotland) and kNN (Italy) each of the three evenings will unfold its very own experience of listening and invite you to uncover new places at the outskirts of contemporary musical ideas. Through their unorthodox approaches to writing music, all three artists create different sonic languages using electronic and acoustic instruments. Each of the live performances will be accompanied by a DJ set to round up the evening. The series houses a diverse range of musical encounters at Frankfurter Kunstverein, to display different spectres of an upcoming generation of artists making music in Europe.

Admission to the Listening Sessions costs €3.
