Have you ever had an epiphany that could only be explained by the inebriates ingested? Only to have that same epiphany come to you in a state in which you can’t deny its existence? Welcome to “Sober”, a night showcasing all the things that you thought were but weren’t so sure existed, but you are faced to come to terms with its magnificence and delight!

IhearU aka Gaël Segalen
{Presented in conduction with Berlinale’s Forum Expanded Program}
From social sciences to radio to film sound mixing to field recording to travel the world to voices to audio art / interaction to making music, french sound artist and musician Gaël Segalen aka IhearU is born for the sounds of life and that exact moment of eternity when she records the other one.
The mic offers an improvisation space and is a pretext to create people’s encounter.
She believes all sounds can coexist in new arrangements, and transposes the complexity of the world into one electroacoustic and polyrhythmic soundscapes, DFR compositions (Danceable Field Recording, between bruitisme and past and future dance cultures). The reconciliation of all the noises she has collected from her travels is manipulated in the studio, in one inclusive spirit, here and now.

Future accolades are coming, be the coolest ones of your friends to say, “I saw him in the Normal Bar in Berlin back in 2015!”
Accompanied by ReVerse Bullets!!!

What is Eiliyas doing now? What will it be? Will he be using the pedals again? Is he going to wear a mask? Is he going to play at all? Only one way to find out.
