Alejandro Ghersi, a Venezuelan-born producer known for his work with FKA twigs, Kanye West, and Bjork’s upcoming album, will be playing under his moniker Arca at the Berghain Panorama bar tomorrow night. Arca’s infectiously bewildering beats with his iconic pearlybridges, dissimulated vocals, and a cadence that falls effortlessly in and out of sync gives the listener a feeling of being untethered from gravity. Arca explores paradoxes and creates utterly harsh and exciting realities. The suspension of disbelief from the industrial, yet soft, harmonies created is impossible to ignore. This should be a truly dynamic show featuring his first proper full-length album, Xen, accompanied by Jesse Kanda.

“Alejandro is very multi-sided as a personality, and he can sometimes become what we call Xen, jokingly. And it’s this very sassy, confident, very feminine side of him. And it’s like, ‘Ohhhh, she’s out,’ we say—mainly when we’re smoking weed, just fucking around. ‘Xen’s out.’ And he’s, like, going crazy, changing his outfits or whatever. That’s Xen inside of him. It’s this kind of ghost. A spirit. Alejandro’s spirit. ” -Jesse Kanda
