Experimental political pop artist Mary Ocher returns with a musical tour-de-force examining the collective dread of our impending future. It’s indeed Mary’s first Berlin appearance within two years. Livecoder Alexandra Cardenas will be joining with a set as well as the futurist Felix Kubin with DJing duties
Mary’s new album features anything from field recordings, to kraut and folk, minimal synth pieces and sonic experiments. Its themes are authoritarianism and the various political and ethical implications of surveillance and artificial intelligence, to be released with an essay. The new recordings feature Barry Burns/Mogwai, Les Trucs, synth wizard-turned contemporary composer Roberto Cacciapaglia, pieces by Dorothy Ashby/Omar Khayyam, a homage to Delia Derbyshire and more.
