Secret Chamber II
The second ‘Secret Chamber’ event of Dark Ecology will take place in Nikel, and features live performances by Tromsø sonic jewel Phonophani, Pomassl from Vienna, Love Cult from Petrozavodsk, as well as a collaboration between Mnogoznaal and TILMIL, who represent the flowering cloud wave generation from Komi (Russia). ‘Secret Chamber’ – in Russian Тайная Комната (Tainaya Komnata) – is the name for the audiovisual events in unexpected, ‘secret’ locations, curated by Anya Kuts and Ivan Zoloto from Petrozavodsk. The Secret Chambers are a never-ending experiment. They started in Karelia (North-West Russia) as an attempt to break the concept of a ‘gig’ and challenge music lovers to find new ways of appreciating sonic art. Previous Secret Chambers took place in an old courthouse, in attics, living rooms of wooden cabins in the forest, industrial lofts, desolate beaches, public libraries, cinemas, art galleries, independent venues and bars.
