Internationales Sommerfestival 2015
Inga Copeland:

Konzert / Support: Tellavision

    Kampnagel – KMH

In her brittle visionary projects, Inga Copeland (formerly of Hype Williams) conjures up the ghosts of forgotten pop avant-gardists. 

Inga Copeland founded the attentiongetting meta-pop duo Hype Williams with her former partner, Dean Blunt. The duo – which disclosed almost nothing about itself to the public – combined afro-futurism, lo-fi noise and bass to create something new. Inga Copeland is also a pseudonym, inspired by the author Douglas Coupland. After the couple split, Dean Blunt released a celebrated break-up album (which he also performed at Kampnagel). In 2014, the London-based Estonian-Russian artist Copeland crafted her own version of the future with her debut, Because I’m Worth It.” The first track on the album, “Faith OG X,” is a vibrating combination of ethereal synths, crackling sounds and two penetrating tones. “Advice to young girls,” produced by the admired British musician Actress, is an alienlike dance-track and ironic commentary on the dictaticism of Beyoncé-style pop-feminism. In “L’Oreal,” which also refers the album’s title to, the ghosts of the old pop avant-garde emerge from disintegrating beats. Inga Copeland distills dissolution to create the music of the future. Support comes from our favorite surreal lo-fi escapist Tellavision, who opens up with hybrid art-pop.

Support-Kooperation mit dem Hamburger Musikpreis Krach&Getöse von RockCity und Haspa Musik Stiftung. Präsentiert von 917xfm, Hanseplatte und ByteFM.
