STUDIO OF UNCONSCIOUS MUSIC—SUM
Alexander Markvart – loops, polivoks, bass, voice & friends (t.b.a.)
SUM (Studio of Unconscious Music), an experimental project originally from Siberia, formed in 2007 and has acquired a new line-up in Berlin. Siberian industrial songs meet Berlin improvised music. SUM works in genres lik iie jazz-punk, industrial techno, electro-acoustic, synth-pop, etc. mixing this with a lyrical component—remnants of the song form: chants, declamations, endless repetitions. At the same time, SUM music—be it gnostic rave or convulsive raw industrial—remains quite suitable for dancing.

Veritas Ventriloquist by Lottie Sebes is a performance and sound work which questions, transforms, and harnesses the historical entanglements of gender, voice and technology. At the core of this performance is the Veritas Machine—a noisy, dynamic, woman-machine interface made of dismantled and reforged sewing machines, re-envisioned as an instrument and vocal synthesizer. This instrument is a set, an apparatus and a relational system of technological components which have been predominantly used by women in history.
Crys Cole – objects, electronics.
crys cole is a Canadian sound artist based in Berlin. She works in composition, performance and sound sculpture / installation. Applying conceptual approaches that utilize haptic gestures and seemingly mundane materials, she creates subtle, texturally nuanced works that continuously retune the ear.
