AMAS

Amas are brave women who plunge into the dark depths of consciousness to bring us pearls of wisdom. An experimental post-industrial duo, formed by Ivana Ray Singh and Maria Gatasanta, key figures of the Barcelonese underground scene and the founders of labels such as A Love Supreme, Màgia Roja and Shaddock among others. Their music is channeled by rhythm, sometimes minimal and lysergic, other crushing and hypnotic, guided by a voice that invokes and banishes at will. For this time Amas will show their first video-clip ‘The way was not lit’ as official online launch.

JUDE COWAN MONTAGUE

Plays Hammond organ and sings. Started out with choir and saluang music of Sumatra Barat. Now one half of Montague Armstrong writing often bouncy free-folk influenced tunes that also could go crazy down the pub. Impressed by Italian giallo experimentation of the 1950s, 60s, 70s and the instruments of that period with their capacitors and resistors and amplifiers rather than the expanding universe of digital multi-options. She’s interested in tune, lyricism, community beats, riffs and experimenting with emotion in melody. a poet and draws expressive cartoon art and prints.

Her music is mostly available on the labels Linear Obsessional and Wormhole World and she promotes womxn composers through her support for the forum Women Composers’ Collective .

 

 

ANAKHEMIA

ANAKHEMIA is the artist persona of Afra Khan who is a music producer, live

controllerist, lyricist, video artist and DJ.  With deep-rooted interests in inter-planetary exploration, wireless technology and abstract sound frequencies, her music can be expected to flow through a canvas of sonic textures that are anti, raw, evocative, cinematic and avant-garde under the banner of mind-body electronic music.

Growing up between places, with a majority of her formative years spent in Saudi Arabia, she finds the notions of conformity, belonging and identity very illusionary and dangerous ideas that reflect in the versatile sound of her performances. Having self-released her debut track, ‘The Prophecy’ in November 2015, she has received support from press and veterans in the electronic dance music industry such at the Techno Originator – Juan Atkins, André Winter, Discwoman and others, while the music video for ‘The Prophecy’ was selected for display at ‘Techno & the City’ art exhibition hosted by Techno & Philosophy and Fiumano Art Gallery in London in November 2016, where it shared space with pioneering Techno visual artists who’ve worked with music legendaries like Underground Resistance, Jeff Mills and many more.

She was also curated under the VISIBILITY banner in 2019 at the premier electronic music exhibition – Expo Electro – hosted at the Philharmonie de Paris, where she was represented alongside visual works of legendary electronic musicians like Daft Punk and Kraftwerk. She continues to be inspired by the position of technology in music and pop-culture, while remaining curious about the influence of electronic music on human behaviour.

BURNING WOMAN

Being born and raised in an industrial region of Ukraine, Burning Woman was exposed to the gloomy atmosphere of large-scale manufacturing plants and the noisy environment of ever-growing construction sites since early childhood. At some point, she learned to love the decadent sight, and especially the sound of her hometown, developing a taste for avant-garde music, experimental electronics, noise, dark ambient, drone, and techno. Today, as a Kyiv-based DJ and musician, Burning Woman draws inspiration from various sources and constantly develops her own sound.

JACQ NOISE 

Name of track: Dispersive Light

Based in Berlin,

In her compositions, JacqNoise is looking for the spot where rhythms cross each other’s paths. She is deconstructing sounds in order to understand the symphony and the themes that are reflected in it. Lately she is observing rhythmic sounds in nature. Trees, brids, and wind are present in one noisy cloud, and in our mind somehow synchronized without being sync on a beat pattern.

Her setup is based on Eurorack modules, this time recorded in the studio of Krach Der Roboter. A playground of new modules to experiment with, with a jewel for her the noisy Krach circuit-bendend Casio keyboard.

Lets see what she creates this livestream by the acoustic, electronic, handmade synth collection from manufacturers all over the world.

JIDO

“Las piezas son identicas pero nunca se repiten,se hacen notas y se vuelve a los errores. Pensamientos en conflicto una y otra vez. Creando una atmosfera de  aceptacion y rechazo JIDO deja al espectador dando vueltas en circulos.”

Kamala is Andrea Ariza, a multidisciplinary Asturian artist living in Madrid. From a very young age she dedicated her life to the techno scene. In 2010 she began promoting electronic events with ASA People Collective. In 2014 she traveled to London and made her debut as a DJ at the Legion parties. Since 2012 she begins to make forays into production, but it is not until 2018, already living in Madrid, where she shapes her own, emotional and hypnotic sound, which interests the Música Dispersa collective and places her in the Woman in Experimental festival. In 2019 Kamala produces the music for a show where she herself acts as a performer, and opens up to new spaces and events such as Hybrid Art Fair, Casa Antillón or Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in Madrid. In addition, the artist often collaborates with Aissa Santiso with the Rhizome project, where, through sound, color and movement, they make spatial and audiovisual sculptures. She has played in events organized by groups such as Techno Messengers, Ranchito Records and Mosul Mosul and in spaces such as Trece Monos, La Ingobernable or Vaciador, gradually expanding the spectrum of music in her repertoire, which is usually focused on dance music and in club culture.
