2021_09_Zabriskie_Books for Earworms_Final

A two-night concert series pairing books with electronic music composers
curated by Felicity Mangan


Books for Earworms is a two-night concert series pairing books with electronic music composers at Zabriskie Buchladen. Composers will present site-specific solo performances that create an immersive experience within the context of the bookshop. The idea for this concept is inspired and plays on the notion of food and wine pairing. In this case, composers select or ‘pair’ themselves with a book from the specialist bookshop.The title ‘Books for Earworms’ refers to the expression earworm – when a tune that is no longer heard is continually repeated in a person’s mind also known as (IMI) Involuntary Musical Imagery.The series is curated by Felicity Mangan, who invited three other sound composers to join her.

Doron Sadja is an American artist, currently based in Berlin and Los Angeles is a composer, educator, and instrument designer whose work explores modes of perception and the experience of sound, light, and space. Working primarily with multichannel spatialized sound – combining pristine electronics with lush romantic synthesizers, extreme frequencies, dense noise, and computer-enhanced acoustic instruments, Sadja creates post-human, hyper-emotive sonic architecture. Although each of Sadja’s works are striking in their singular and focused approach, his output is diverse: spanning everything from immersive multichannel sound pieces to sexually provocative performance / installation works, and stroboscopic smoke, mirror, laser, and projection shows.
Doron runs the Sound Portraits lecture listening series and online radio show which examines the life and work of different iconic electronic music composers each month. He is a teacher at Catalyst Institute for Art and Technology in Berlin where he teaches Creative Technologies in their Masters Degree Program, and Electronic Music Performance and Composition in their Bachelors Degree Program.
