 DJs D. EDREN + C. KNEX 



LA FUREUR DE VOUIVRE (Toulouse, fr)
The duo of field ethnologist Pauline Marx and instrument inventor Julien Groboz swirls up a whirlwind of hypnotic rhythms, head-spinning melodies and snake charmer mayhem. Making use of different herbs as reeds for their handmade flutes, with various samplers and electronics, the two sculpt a dazzling weave of nature and technology evoking both ancient cultures, fantastic creatures and endless nights in Jajouka.
Garden concert celebrating the release of their album, "L'Herbe Qui Rend Amoureux", published in Belgium on cassette tape and CD through Stenze Quo. In France the album will be out on tape through Cool Raoul (Brest).

QUANTA QUALIA (cl/be)
QUANTA QUALIA (cl/be, installation & performance)
Quanta Qualia is the entanglement of Tomàs Dittborn and Siet Raeymaekers also co-running the Nonlocal Research label and the Nonlocal Society collective. Their aesthetic operations emerge through intermingled zones of music, body gesture and visual art. QQ's main resources are left-overs from the ruins of the spectacle. Unique pieces of litter are rediscovered through a sience-fictional archeology of the present. Live they create strange feedback loops between Siet’s moving body images and Tomàs’ sound views. Here the found objects become actors and companions for imaginary narratives that constantly arise and disintegrate into ever morphing meanings.

VICA PACHECO (mx/be)
Vica unfolds airy electronic layers and fragile shapes sculpted from remote recordings and ambient daydreaming. She blends origins and destinations of collected sounds, turning them into a warm sonic diary. Mexican born and Brussels based, she is a part of the art collective Outreglot, soon to release "Vocamorfosis", a radiophonic opera on Nonlocal Research.

0RPHAN DRIFT (cpt/uk)
0rphan Drift’s contemporary portal manifests in video projections, installations, texts and site specific projects. Considering current narratives around climate crisis, synthetic intelligence and interspecies communication, we imagine AI through the somatic tendencies of the octopus in order to explore possibilities in expanding and inhabiting other systems of perception and proprioception. We continue to work with moving images, digital textures, machine vision and ancient predictive technologies such as the I-Ching to create non-linear narratives and installations.

ACCOU (fr)
Accou’s performances are journeys: through collages of field recordings blended with a slightly worrying incoherent juxtaposition of synthesizers, he tells a flamboyant yet delusional pilgrimage of a marauder at the edges of the somewhat coming enlightenment.

SANDRA LOLAX & LENDL BARCELOS (fi/ca)
Story of the Outside Eye starts with a name & fleshes itself out over time as a performance. Trying to make sense of it are soon-to-be-physiotherapist Sandra Lolax & PhD deserter Lendl Barcelos. So far they have noticed that outside eyes feed on dance material. On Saturday, eyes meet across two rooms filled with empty conceits where they strive to top one another by developing ever unlikelier, ever more perfect readings: a missing version of Reich's Clapping Music for cleated soles; the house stepped slalom; digital vexations; and the scanning of things you recognize but don't want to know the specifics of. Sandra's glass is usually half empty. Lendl is heard laughing.

VIKI VIKTORIA (US, Detroit)
VIKI Viktoria (aka VIKI) is the pseudonym of Detroit multidisciplinary artist, improvisor and composer Lindsay Karty, whose work involves historic and contemporary electronics, custom circuitry, sound spatialization and language experiments into combinations of live and telematic performance. VIKI formed from the same pond of DIY electronics as Wolf Eyes, Maximum Cloud, Nautical Almanac and went on to obtain an MFA, studying with composer Pauline Oliveros. Karty continues to host Deep Listening events in Detroit and is co-curator of the city’s inaugural Trip Metal Fest. VIKI moves fluidly between sound worlds, street-smart as well as school-smart. She is also a member of SLIKI, a duo with Stallone the Reducer. She actively practices and collaborates in live multi-channel speaker performance in acoustically interesting spaces and club situations.

GRANT CORUM
"APPEARANCE OF UNIVERSE B"

TIMELASH (cl/us)

SPENCER CLARK AS CYBERFATHER 

‘Appearance of Universe B’ is the first international exposition of Corum, whom will be presenting new original prints, illuminated sound scripts, fresh aromas and living altars. The opening night will feature live demonstrations by Timelash (Embassador Dulgoon {Chile} & Corum) along with an extremely zonked collection of deep tunes by Spencer Clark as Cyberfather.

Corum’s body of work conjures images of trippy landscapes, both real and imagined, simultaneously in the far off past and in the distant future. He runs the ‘deep psyche-cottage industry’ that is the Psychic Sounds record label, documenting both solo works and a variety of collaborative projects such as Million Brazilians, Typhonian Highlife and more recently the Mummy Dust Trippers.
