Éclat VA. Vol 2

Éclat Vol 2: Their Petals Unfurl Like A Manta Ray

Éclat Crew has been hard at work changing the face of the Berlin music industry since 2018, when the collective of female, trans and nonbinary electronic music producers was first established.

Last year saw the very first compilation of tracks from producers from within the community, and now in 2023 they’re releasing another eclectic, sparkling volume of tracks spanning genre, location, and aesthetic.

With producers and DJs from Éclat regularly featuring on line-ups throughout Europe and the world, it should come as no surprise that Eclat Vol. 2: Their Petals Unfurl Like A Manta Ray is filled with surprise and delight. From the abrasive industrial sounds of ( ether o ) opening the collection, to the sparkling resonances of Ianni Luna’s ‘Rever’, to the propulsive techno of RANO’s ‘Dream a dream’, this collection truly illustrates the diversity and breadth of work emerging from this well-established Berlin-based community.

( ether o )

Chia is a visual artist, musician and Reiki healer. 

Under the name (  ether o  ) , she holds her interdisciplinary practices as one with total freedom of her artistic vision. 

She works conceptually with sound and music and expresses her activism through rhythm by using beats as the symbol of weapon and mapping solidarity. With her drummer background, she uses drums as storytelling devices with different gestures in her work, and has developed into percussion-based, polyrhythmic electronic music producing and DJ. 

With her fine art background in sculpture, she perceives sound-making as sculpting time and electronic current, as well as collage and building soundscape.  

As an energy worker, she pays attention to energy flow and channeling in music, and is interested in the relation between body and sound.

a multitude of everything - a multitude of everything

a multitude of everything

a multitude of everything is a desire to listen to all the music at the same time. It is the struggle to try to do everything and maybe just do nothing. The current music project of darken malign an organiser and artist from Ireland, based in Berlin. The project is a discordant data dump of multiple streams and crumbling realities, overlaying first take vocals, with voice notes and field recordings, tossing in YouTube plunderphonics, abstract turntablism, a plethora of disembodied voices and choirs of angels. Incorporating influences from drone to lo-fi singer songwriter, Irish folk, baroch, ambient, and diving deep through a lifetime in music subcultures they try to find a voice through anxiety, a sense of hope and meaning in the data, seeking community through divergent streams for generous ears.

Love, Builder of Worlds

With intent to build a world from the rubbles of a white supremacist end-stage capitalist hellscape, Love, Builder of Worlds uses all the skills they have available to them to do so with the hopes that love and self-expression will carry zem through.

A multidisciplinary anti-binary person who uses all and any pronouns, Love found that “non-binary” did not encapsulate their resistance to the treatment of disabled, refugees, trans people of African descent. And with this, he has found the foundation and lens for the intention to convey his art.

The dynamism of xir music compels one to movement and transports you to imagine the lived experience xey are conveying through the sounds. Their vocal delivery is reminiscent of a call from the quiet of one’s soul, a whisper made out loud as if nothing to hide, laying all bare. Embodying the principle of anti-binary they move effortlessly through electronic music, disco, blues, afrobeats, indie-electro pop and garage music. Truly a breath of fresh air.

Musically, Ioana creates ambient textural layers and dark drones with eerie vocals or soft pads to blend with the flowing visual world. A lot of the sounds come from recordings taken in various natural landscapes or spaces with unique sounds such as Orthodox monasteries and caves. The music and visuals coexist and evolve together in a generative AV dialogue.
