SUNDAY 19 AUGUST 2017
AT KEITH BAR (SCHILLERPROMENADE 2)
Spiritual Recess (USA)
Spiritual Recess is the musical project of one Alexander Tominsky of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Tominsky first broke through five years ago in an appearance on a DJ-themed episode of Judge Judy but since then, he has come into his own as a thoroughly unique performer and artist. Whether performing as a member of POOL with Ren "container" Schofield and Christopher "mark recluse unlock" Forgues or on his own, Tominsky is a force to be reckoned with and a rare voice of motivation and inspiration in the American noise scene.
DJ Puddle (DE)
DJ Puddle doing her normal thing.... playing records
Miguel Enrique Alvariño is a boy in his room “making beats for headbangers, not ravers.” He is also one half of the administrative crew of Primitive Languages, a label releasing strange music of all genres since 2014. His own music has been released on NYC's L.I.E.S. and Bank Records as well as North Carolina’s Hot Releases.
Cienfuegos shares its name with the Cuban town and translates to “one hundred fires.” The intent of this moniker can be felt tangibly throughout the music’s gritty, driving rhythms, which veer towards nasty while never losing their groove. The lyrics, written in Spanish, explore the sordid history of relations between the Caribbean and the U.S., and apply these themes on a personal level, through poetic description of the fragmentation of cultural and personal identity, the misplacement of a nomad. This is passionate revolt music, or as Suárez so succinctly describes it, “some form of resistance music for people who know the world has already ended.
GINGER BREAKER (CA)
Night Riding Techno Psychedelia from Montreal, CA. 1/2 of SLEAZY with Marie Davidson.
SILVIA KASTEL (IT/DE)

A fixture of the global underground for many years as one half of Control Unit, she has been honing her solo craft in recent times and will release her debut album proper on Blackest Ever Black in Autumn of this year.

Leila Bordreuil is a Brooklyn based cellist and composer from Aix-en-Provence, France. She works in the realm of Noise music, improvisation, New Music and sound-art. Her cello playing is often improvised, and mainly focuses on texture variations and a collage of phantom overtones and pitched utterances. Through an original vocabulary of extended techniques, preparations, and imaginative amplification methods, her instrument is used as an abstract resonant body to challenge conventional cello practice. Her composed works draw from a similar texture-based musical aesthetic, but also focus on the relationship between sound and space. In her site-specific electro-acoustic compositions, architecture is the foundation of the piece and musicality arises from an organized spacialization of sound. Bordreuil's collaborative projects include duos with Michael Foster and Tamio Shiraishi, a trio with Sean Ali and Joanna Mattrey, and the no-wave band “Signal Break”.
E. Slemo aka Wilted Woman is a musician living and working in Berlin, Germany. She makes music with electronics and saxophone with elements reaching from noise and industrial to early computer music and American techno. WW has performed at venues across North America and Europe including Fylkingen (Stockholm), Les Brasseurs (Liège), C. Rockefeller Center for the Arts (Dresden), Ohm (Berlin) and Le Laboratoire (Boston).
