Era Geldes, the alter ego of Ana Berkenhoff, performer, musician, is on the search for the ideal king for all of us, the lead out of confusion and breakdown of societies in her new musical project. In line with THE CONFERENCE OF BIRDS by Fariduddin Attar, a 12th-century Persian poem, she traverses seven valleys of the human soul with the audience, who become companions, to arrive at the king of birds, the Simorg.
The journey through an installation of seven mysterious islands, build from rubbish, found objects and light, combines with a concert of the latest songs by Era Geldes and is a sound space that wants to guide and seduce the at the same time. Geldes's expressive and erratic sound loops carry her voice through the valleys that gradually reveal themselves from the darkness of the room.
What was once a 360° sound space is supposed to become a 360° virtual space in the near future- follow us to get informed!
We intend to perform with ERA GELDE´S Federal Fluxus live in the VR sphere to come. And it will be immersive!
