Saturday 04.07.2020 at the Copper Leg Art Residency
14:30 Opening of Raul Keller’s photo exhibition
15:00 Post Horn live
Raul Keller is an Estonian interdisciplinary artist working with site-specific improvisation since 2000 both in performative and installative context. He has focused on radiophonic experiments and text, lo-fi technologies, and DIY cultures with an emphasis on the process. In 2014 Keller filled the Contemporary Art Museum of Estonia with a total sound installation with his solo show What You Hear Is What You Get (Mostly) and in 2019, a site-specific installation Girl In The Sewer was arrested and taken custody from the entrance of the same institution.
In recent years he has focused on performing as a solo artist on modular synthesizers and with a free impro noise duo Post Horn (w/ Hello Upan), generating and publishing text and keeping experimenting with analog photography.
For Copper Leg Art residency he built a darkroom enlarger to be used with his mobile phone and decided to make a test series from moving images. Three small series have emerged from that process that will be presented, although the digital origins have mostly already vanished from the pieces.
Post Horn is a free impro noise duo with Raul (modular synthesizers, objects, percussion) and Hello (electric violin, objects, loopers) regarding the origins of their collaboration in a Project Unison album DOHC from 2004. Working together from 2007 with Katrin Essenson, they formed the trio LokaaRaadio for radiophonic experiments on stage that gave performances in various settings traveling as far as Sao Paolo Biennial in 2012 as part of the festival radio project. In 2017 the project reformed as a duo and renamed themselves Post Horn (after the horns of Jericho) and published their first LP Pacific MKDKVNL0035. At Vaskjala concert they will be making a public recording for their upcoming LP at the end of this year

13:30 – 17:30 Opening of the summer season at Copper Leg Art Residency, sound art event and Copper Leg Cookbook presentation.
We will start our summer season with a sound art event where the list of performers is very dignified, and sound bathing should satisfy more refined tastes. Completely composed works will be performed, as well as more performative, accrual and snappy sound bouquets. In addition, we are pleased to present the Copper Leg Art Residency Cookbook, a catalog that summarizes the residency’s activities in 2017-2018. Better late than never!
