Unfortunately, due to unforeseen personal circumstances Shackleton will not be joining us for the next edition of Rewire x Korzo. We hope to welcome him to Rewire at a future date. However, we are immensely thankful that we were able to find a replacement as accomplished and exciting as Rabih Beaini, who will play alongside Waclaw Zimpel in what promises to be a remarkable performance.
Beaini’s genuine musical ability and a range of influences—from krautrock to new wave—seep into his inventive, dark, and emotional productions and immersive DJ sets. These influences also find their way into Beani’s productions with the Upperground Orchestra, a multi-headed improvisational ensemble that explores the terrain between electronica, techno, and improvisational jazz.
At Rewire x Korzo Rabih Beaini and Waclaw Zimpel will delve deeper into practices they’ve been working on in recent years. Besides the Thai Khaen (mouth Organ) and the clarinet, Zimpel will enrich his sound range with instruments from Rajasthan and the Slovakian mountains, while Beaini will expand on it with the use of his processing rig, adding bottom and noise with a self-built string instrument. The stage will witness a natural dialogue between the two, with improvisation leading to composition parts and a dedicated sound design, building up on intensity and non-well-tempered musical scales.
