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

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. By taking the all-encompassing, overwhelming experience of a rave and plunging it into hazy ambient soundscapes, Nayar combines the bodily sensation of a packed dance floor with the reflexivity of an ambient show. 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
