A performative concert with 392

392 is an electronic instrument invented by NAF that is 6 meters long and with 392 black keys. It is a keyboard, a sculpture, an archive of sounds that have been collected and developed through the years, and it is a node. It is a technology for collectively becoming visible and audible.

NAF are Nana Hülsewig and Fender Schrade from Stuttgart. Since 2013 they have been working consistently on an aesthetic of transgression in the areas of pop music, theater and the visual arts. The duo has received numerous awards for their performances onstage and in public spaces. In NORM IST F! KTION # 5/3 – Together in the universe of sound, they work together with the soprano Hannah Mae Mehler from Zurich and the composer and performer Neo Huelcker from Berlin.

Magnús Logi Kristinsson:
Rubber Band Performance

Rubber bands dropping, endlessly sounding, while thinking, wondering about everything and nothing, mesmerised.

Born in 1975 in Iceland, Magnus Logi Kristinsson has been creating solo performances since 1999, when he moved to Amsterdam to study at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy, where he focused on performative practice and receiving his Bachelor of Arts degree in 2003.

Language and the body become structural and sculptural forms in Kristinsson’s performance-based practice. Through a systematic manner of speaking, his diverse listings become a mix of concrete poetry and music, while his physical presence is put to the test as it borders on the inanimate.


The triple bill is part of Together in the Universe of Sound Festival which takes place at Maunula House on two weekends in October: Oct 15-16 and 29-30. With a festival pass you gain access to all the festival performances. The event is produced by Oblivia and Liisa Pentti +Co in collaboration with Maunula House.

The festival is supported by Goethe-Institut Finnland, City if Helsinki, Konstsamfundet, Stiftelsen Tre Smeder, Finnish Cultural Foundation, Arts Promotion Centre and DANCE ON TOUR AUSTRIA – a project by Tanzquartier Wien in cooperation with the Federal Ministry for European and International Affairs.
