C-drík is a composer and musician, operating in the field of noise, electronic and experimental music since 1989. Born in Zaire (DR Congo), lived in Belgium and the Netherlands, and is currently based in Berlin (Germany). C-drík researches and explores electronic, experimental and noise music from Asia and Africa, and co-authored the renewed book Not Your World Music: Noise In South East Asia, published in 2016.

TMS is an experimental noise project by the two Berlin-based artists Malte Steiner (DE) and Tina Mariane Krogh Madsen (DK). The format of the TMS project is improvisational site-specific sound pieces built out of Steiner and Madsen’s sonic interactions, where noisescapes and complex structures emerge from intense layering of various sonic in- and outputs. The physical interaction with materials is an important part of TMS’ identity, and to create a performative and visual sound experience.

About the piece movement(al) distortion(s): Performative inputs of objects and body(triggered) sounds will be transformed and distorted through the use of analogue electronic manipulation. The feed-ins will happen live and run through various pedals and other self-created DIY manipulators that transform these into a dynamic noisescape. Translating and modifying movement and interaction with body and objects into sound. The sources and inputs come from the interaction of the two performers, each bringing physical elements into the shared composition. Sounds from objects and the interaction between body, surfaces and the architectural structures of the space feed into the piece through the use of piezo microphones. Both performers will live manipulate their own generated sounds into an interwoven structure of resonating noise patterns. ,

movement(al) distortion(s) performed at Electropixel, Nantes (FR), August 19. 2016 (excerpt):


Dr.Nexus is a berlin activist, performance artist and curator – active in the noise and experimental scene since more than 20 years – initiator of numerous amazing projects. ,

Greta Christensen is a dänish sound artists based in berlin. Her approach to music starts from a visual and sculptural practice. Turntable deconstruction and rearrangement of the vinyl media in all imaginative ways is strongly influencing her sounds.

The artists will present a new piece together!

Aleks Slota’s performative practice addresses the themes of public persona, systemic and interpersonal violence, and internalized and externalized power structures. These themes are confronted in his works about religious intolerance, internet anonymity, substance abuse, family history, loneliness, hedonism, linguistics, nationalism, state surveillance, sexuality, migration, the artist’s ego, among others.
