The community space for audiophile listening, After, has hosted the first Berlin public listening session of Silent Parties. The event follows a two-year collaboration with techno producer Sternum on benandsebastian’s sound piece about legal trials of animals and robots. In the genre-bending audio work – part talk, part techno set, part podcast, part sound art – benandsebastian discuss these trials with 16 specialists working within the fields of law, robotics, animal and AI ethics, anthropology and cognition. These remarkable cases and come to life in a quadruple dubplate set made for After and mastered by sound engineer Conor Dalton.

After is a community space for audiophile listening at Köpenicker Straße 187-188, 10997 Berlin.
