A L’ARME! FESTIVAL VOL. IX – Back To Live

Noise, improvisation and rhapsodic sounds… Berlin’s renowned avant-garde jazz festival “A L’ARME!” returns to the big stage over three days at the end of July. “A L’ARME! VOL IX” features 13 acts, 18 concerts and about 40 musicians – all finally in front of a live audience again. The festival kicks off on July 28th with an open air event at Zenner Biergarten.

Following the digital edition in December 2020, the pace of this summer’s relaunch of “A L’ARME” will be set by various premieres, such as those of the ensembles Unstumm and Skultura, both to be experienced for the first time in their hometown of Berlin. Another highlight is Kali Malone's inaugural collaboration with guitar surgeon Stephen O'Malley and cellist Lucy Railton. The latter two can also be heard in other groups. The collective Karkhana weaves together influences from Beirut, Cairo, Istanbul and Chicago; the Moondog Project pays homage to one of the greatest mavericks in music history; meanwhile, organ pipes, tape machines and wooden objects take on crucial roles.

Just as it did in previous years, “A L’ARME! VOL. IX” tests out various states of aggregation of hearing and feeling. In 2020, the festival mutated into a film that thrust its own mission into a new light and which will be shown at radialsystem this summer. All signs point to performance for this ninth edition – live, direct, with physical force – and in immediate exchange with the audience, for which there is no substitute.
