KREIDLER celebrate the 10th anniversary of their groundbreaking 2009 album »Mosaik 2014« with a remastered edition. The reissue of the record features an updated track list and is pressed onto 140g white vinyl. For the occasion of the re-release, KREIDLER will present an expanded spatial mix of the album. The sound installation »Mosaik 2014 Seven Speakers« will run at ITALIC from March 16 to April 20, with an opening reception on March 15.
»Seven Speakers« was initiated by KREIDLER member Alex Paulick with the intention of presenting music in surround sound in public settings. The 7.1-technology offers the potential for musicians to produce for the format with standard audio equipment and software, as well as the ease and affordability of creating the playback situation in accessible and temporary spaces. The first two instalments of »Seven Speakers« saw Min Stiller creating a landscape of plants and ceramics on wooden structures, with the speakers and cables organically nestled in. »Seven Speakers A Listening Environment« 2010 at Gartenstudio, Berlin showcased compositions by eight artists/artistic groups: Narrow Bridges, Barbara Morgenstern & Chor der Kulturen der Welt, Marcus Schmickler, Kante, Bacchus Marteau, CFM, Phillip Sollmann/Efdemin, and KREIDLER – with an extended surround-version of their song »Kremlin Rules«. The second instalment at project space NR4 was part of the CTM festival Berlin in 2011. In Spring 2017 »Seven Speakers« was guest at Image Movement Berlin for a surround-mix of the then most recent KREIDLER album: »European Song Seven Speakers«.
