Rewire x Korzo #22: Nivhek presents ENGINE, Rachika Nayar

Korzo, The Hague

Saturday 25 November 2023 — 20:15

For Rewire x Korzo #22, taking place on Saturday 25 November, Liz Harris (aka Grouper) will return to The Hague under her Nivhek moniker. Accompanied by a film by Takashi Makino, she presents a new live show called ENGINE. Nivhek’s new work is constructed from field recordings of car and train engine noise recorded at drag races over the past decade, overlaid with synthesiser and electronics. The sound of excess, power, sex, destruction, capitalism, of oil becoming an airborne pollutant, of transformation, of life. 

Also performing is Brooklyn based composer Rachika Nayar. Moving between post-rock, trance, ambient, and more in a colossal sonic world all of its own, Nayar's second full-length, Heaven Come Crashing, is a breakneck exploration of desperate passion—romantic, nocturnal, and reckless in its emotional abandon. Clouded in fog, Rachika Nayar processes her guitar and turns its sounds into thick layers of music – sometimes crystalline and lush, at other times murky and oblique. Performed live, her music allows for total immersion.

Saturday 25 November – start: 20.15
