Performance: ILYICH

The event is part of Zona &.

If not now, when? is a genre-fluid journey responding to the military invasion of Ukraine. 

Augmenting music performances with performance art ILYICH invites you into a world of deep and panoramic sound with thoughtful stories, cinematic soundscapes, e-bass interludes, poems and dance tracks. If not now, when? ponders a possibility of afterlife as something unfolding now: a practice of a new beginning, life after the latest moment of planetary, personal and collective history. 

Embracing an uneasy place as the daybreak of the fantastical ILYICH is motivated by a disillusionment of borders in the face of an unstable present and unpredictable future. If not now, when? invites others to join forces in listening and embarking on an introspective, grooving journey, redreaming the world after hope as a world after war. 

ILYICH is a musician and storyteller reincarnated in Kherson, Ukraine.

ILYICH is known for their live music releases with the Nervous Records and the Lot Radio in New York; Gilles Peterson and the BBC 6 Music Radio Rotation; unearthly performances at the Roskilde and Fusion Festivals and discursive occurrences at Galleries, Museums and cultural spaces including the Serpentine Galleries in London; Sonic Acts in Amsterdam, SAVVY Contemporary, Centre for Contemporary Arts and House of the World Cultures in Berlin and steirischer herbst in Graz, among others.
