Music and visual arts are the two facets of Mazen Kerbaj’s work. In the frame of his exhibition ‘In the Presence / Absence of Mazen Kerbaj’ at ifa Gallery Berlin the series ‘Mazen Kerbaj invites X + one’ takes place. In the concert series Kerbaj invites of his close collaborators in Berlin, asking her or him to bring along another musician. The name of the second guest will remain unrevealed to Kerbaj and to the audience until the joint concert. On 30 April, the musician Andrew Lafkas brings along a guest to the concert with Kerbaj.
The musician Andrew Lafkas plays the contrabass and is focused on developing pieces for largish ensembles that encourage group intuition. He is inspired by experiences working in groups led by Milo Fine and Bill Dixon. Lafkas is part of the group Oceans Roar 1000 Drums with Todd Capp and Bryan Eubanks, and a trio with Marcia Bassett and Barry Weisblat. He has performed at venues and festivals including Walker Art Center, The Living Theatre, Experimental Intermedia, the Vision Festival, and the Seattle Improvised Music Festival.
