Pekler's approach to music-making and sound has evolved considerably over the years but has remained in essence an experiment with found materials, be they samples, instruments or genre conventions.

"Tristes Tropiques" an immersive audio-visual installationinspired by the writings of structural anthropologist and philosopher Claude Lévi-Strauss...
Beatrice Dillon 


There's no obvious entry point to the works of Beatrice Dillon. Between dubby cassette releases, folk compilations, eclectic mixes, and filmic compositions, it's never clear where tracing her efforts is likely to lead you. Dillon’s musical mind is an encyclopedia more exploratory than lofty. Oddly, it’s not wholly surprising that her latest record includes a shuffling techno number citing the likes of Rabih Beaini and Miles Davis among its inspirations...

Binh 


In a relatively short time, the name Binh has become almost synonymous with the sounds of modern underground Berlin; but it was the training the Düsseldorf native received throughout the country that allowed him to hone tastes and skills before arriving in the capital to claim a stake in its bustling music scene.

The years leading up to 2007 were characterized by a series of breakthroughs and successful residencies throughout Essen and Düsseldorf, a path that naturally led to Berlin, where Binh was able to quickly stand out from among the masses thanks to an extremely particular taste in music and sets overflowing with deep house and techno of the most refined variety, defined by subtlety and sprinkled with the delightfully unexpected...
Black Fanfare 


Demetrio Castellucci was born in 1989 in Cesena, Italy. From 2004 to 2008 he composed the music for the dances created by Stoa, a school of movement and philosophical thought based in his hometown. The experience led to Castellucci’s in-depth research on the dialogue between choreographic gesture and sound, and to the release of his first album, Stoa. The project Icon Icon (2005), on electronic pop music, brought Castellucci’s compositions closer to melody. In 2007, Castellucci began a solo experimental electronic project named Black Fanfare...
Buttechno 


Buttechno is Pavel Milyakov, a young music producer from Moscow’s suburban district and one of the leading voices in the local rising underground scene. He is one of the founders of Johns’ Kingdom, a label and self-described "group of pretty unknown artists" from the Russian dancefloor avant-garde advocating anonymity ("untitled united") and an anti-ego approach to music as fundamental principles of creativity.

Milyakov makes spacious, dystopian, and wonky reflections on techno that mirror the expansive barrenness and desolation of his highrise-dominated environs...
Dewey Dell 


Dewey Dell was formed in 2007 by four young people: Teodora, Demetrio, Agata Castellucci and Eugenio Resta. The four founders of the company have strong skills in different areas and each of them gives priority to a specific aspect of the work, without giving up a collective modelling of materials. Teodora is therefore author of choreographies, Demetrio composes the music, Eugenio designs the lights and the set, while Agata assists in choreographic creation. From 2007 Dewey Dell has created seven performances that have been presented in the main festivals around Europe and in some festivals in Australia (Melbourne Festival), Russia (Cross Art Festival), U...

Lucrecia Dalt 


Lucrecia Dalt dove into music full-time after working as a civil engineer in Colombia — her pursuit of avant-garde sound brought her to Spain and then to Germany, where she currently resides. While highly technical, Dalt's music still maintains a quantity of emotionality, merging accessible, melody with abstract structures, handcrafted effects and sampling.
In recent years, Dalt has collaborated with Berlin's F.S. Blumm, Barbara Morgenstern, Gudrun Gut, L.A.-based musician Julia Holter and most recently with the group comprised of Rashad Becker, Charlotte Collin, Lucrecia Dalt, Laurel Halo, Julia Holter, Kohei Matsunaga (a...

Pierre Bastien presents Silent Motors 


Pierre Bastien’s is a french gentleman born 1953 who builds his own machineries, at the cross between music and visual art, that blends live trumpet sounds with screen projections of on-site, mechanical sound sculptures in a very poetic way.

Bastien has been called a "mad musical scientist with a celebrity following" by The Guardian. Collaborating in the past with filmmaker Pierrick Sorin, fashion designer Issey Miyake, singer and composer Robert Wyatt and Aphex Twin ( who released three of his albums on his label Rephlex) to name a few, he is one of the most influential experimental musicians working in the field...
Samuel Kerridge presents Fatal Light Attraction 


Samuel Kerridge has garnered a dedicated following for his expertly executed slow churning industrial techno, fusing Sunn O)))-like walls of drone with the chug of heavy machinery.
