Cameron Deas is an experimental musician based in London. Currently working with electronics, he uses an integrated array of synthesis techniques that are triggered by, and in turn manipulate, external acoustic sound sources, in and out of conjunction with pure electronic sounds. Working in an entirely live environment, Deas creates a kind of real-time musique concrete, resulting in an abstract yet organic contemporary electronic  (more…)


Using unsettling noise, distressed screams, hand made electronics and found objects pushed through pedals, AJA’s industrial beats and distorted drone, combined with a psycho-visceral, intense performance challenges the audience by breaking down barriers and pushing limits sonically and visually. “Her experimentation with the limits of sound make for a captivating sonic experience, while the attention to the visual is reminiscent of the theatricality of artists such as Peaches.” – The Quietus  (more…)

Boy Harsher is a dark electronic duo that produces gritty dance beats infused with ethereal vocals, creating a sound that is eerie, intense and incredibly danceable. Augustus Muller develops the underbelly of sound with minimal beats and grinding synths, where Jae Matthews whispers, screams and chants on top. Together, the music created is somewhere between industrial, drone and confessional storytelling. Muller and Matthews both have a strong background in film and their cinematic approach translates effectively in both their recordings and live performance.  .…more

Eine evokative Klangszenerie – akustische Entitäten, die miteinander in Kommunikation treten. Rashad Becker schafft es wie wenige neben ihm, musikalische Stücke vorzutragen, in denen synthetische Klangkörper in verbale Interaktion treten. Durch leichte Variationen in der Intonation der Klänge und scheinbar zufällige Zeitlichkeiten entsteht das poetische Narrativ  .…more

Like a lot of minimalist art, Sarah Davachi’s music appears simple on the surface. Not a lot seems to happen, at least not in terms of melody, rhythm, or any of the usual categories of Western popular music: Her music consists mainly of long held tones. The real action is not found in the notes themselves but in their microtonal variations and the wealth of overtones, harmonics, and ghostly pulses produced by the friction between them. Her work belongs to a tradition of deep, shimmering drone music that includes Eliane Radigue, Kevin Drumm, Phill Niblock  .…more

Container’s Ren Schofield works at the crossroads of techno and noise. His new EP Adhesive’s four tracks are simultaneously giddy and rotten, boggling techno’s customary propulsion with lingering, heady rhythms and puzzling clamor. On its return to the Kerridge’s Contort label, Emanuele Porcinai’s WSR project renders a dense, gut-wrenching session combining self-built string instruments and field recordings in a sort of shoegazing noise-techno stress test.…more

Cilantro presents a world full of enigmas, labyrinths, sometimes abrasive, sometimes ecstatic, a complex and delicate subjectivity. Recorded in a basement in Podersdorf am See, a resort Austrian area, it conjures dark resonances of the space waking up memories hidden inside. …more

Davon überzeugt, dass sich gesellschaftliche Entwicklungen direkt in der Musik niederschlagen bzw. von ihr vorhergesagt werden können und darauf reflektiert werden sollte, treibt der Kölner Marcus Schmickler seine Soundforschungen an ein Extrem.

Střed Světa is situated somewhere between the outer reaches of Prague suburbia and the world, making music as a part of his quotidian activities for more than a decade. A self-professed misanthrope, who doesn’t mind company, delves deeper into the recesses of his aural memory to recontextualize influences ranging from German rave to IDM, but transgresses and subverts any genre-based limitations, utilizing a deliberate “slap-dash” modus operandi.  …more

Valerio Tricoli is a composer and performer of electro-acoustic music. Since the mid ’00 his main instruments for live presentations is the Revox B77 reel-to-reel tape recorder.His sounds are always hovering between the “here and now” of the concert situation and the shady domain of memory – distant but at the same time present like in a deja-vu experience. Privileging fracture over continuity and by the use of a dynamic range that could often jump suddenly from near-silence to extreme blasts of sounds, an almost tactile feeling of brooding tension is often attained.
