Once again in 2017, Mieko Suzuki, the Japanese DJ, sound artist and music curator who found her home in Berlin, will kick off the fifth edition of the A L’ARME! Festival within the striking backdrop of Berghain! Her unique, electro-acoustic soundscapes and experimental performances are grounded in deep, hauling bass creating a constant tension between the delicate, the raw and the daring. She will magically connect the live acts before, between, and after the concerts, and will take us on a journey through her and our subconscious mind.

Mieko has been involved in many ongoing, cross-disciplinary collaborations with various dancers, fashion designers, performers and visual artists, including Carly Fischer, Tatsuro Horikawa (Julius), and Meg Stuart. Since 2009, she has been running her own bi-monthly multidisciplinary event KOOKOO, together with Arno Raffeiner (Spex), currently located at OHM, Berlin.
