Following a 30-hour live performance and installation at Martin-Gropius-Bau, DJ Sprinkles will play one of her elaborate and much-celebrated Deeperama sets.Line-up /
The contexts from which the Deep House sound emerged are forgotten: sexual and gender crises, transgendered sex work, black market hormones, drug and alcohol addiction, loneliness, racism, HIV, ACT-UP, Thompkins Sq. Park, police brutality, queer-bashing, underpayment, unemployment and censorship — all at 120 beats per minute.
DJ Sprinkles, Midtown 120 Blues
To conclude and celebrate the 30-hour live performance and installation of “Soulnessless” at the Lichthof of Martin-Gropius-Bau Terre Thaemlitz aka DJ Sprinkles will play one of his elaborate Deeperama sets for which the American transgender artist is internationally renowned. A rebel within modern club culture, DJ Sprinkles brings to mind house music’s roots in queer club culture, offering beat-based resistance against the cliché of the dance music scene as an apolitical, hedonistic space.

Art Is Unavoidably Work. – Terre Thaemlitz
There are few who succeed in bringing together art, theory and politics so consistently and convincingly as the American transgender artist Terre Thaemlitz (*1968). Whether as a musician, multimedia producer, writer, DJ or label owner of Comatonse Recordings, Thaemlitz generates and operates within a highly sensitive and reflected space. The clarity of this space gives her music, videos and texts their specific profoundness and poetic force. Thaemlitz’s work critically combines themes of identity politics – including gender, sexuality, social class, language, ethnicity, and race – with an ongoing analysis of the socio-economic conditions under which most music is currently produced and marketed.
MaerzMusik presents the first full live-version of “Soulnessless”. The centrepiece of the project is the 30-hour piano composition “Canto V: Meditation On Wage Labor And The Death Of The Album”. The audience is invited to spend day and night and day with and inside the “World’s Longest Album in History”.
