On June 30 and July 1, Katowice Sound Department together with Tauron Nowa Muzyka Katowice will once again invite everyone to take a moment of musical rest and buffer some festival energy in Katowice’s Bogucki Park. This time around, the “amplified” concert shell will host a meeting of artists representing digital dub, light acid, ecstatic noise and ambient techno, while every morning will begin with the sounds of nature provided by self-playing synthesizers. ADMISSION IS FREE!
Come and join us :)
Broshuda – his music combines elements of sound art, electroacoustic techniques, field recordings and heavy rhythmic sounds. The common denominator for such diverse activities is his playful approach to experiments and willingness to explore new musical directions. Thanks to empirical attitude towards creating music and combining various production techniques, Broshuda’s sound palette is extremely rich. Continuing the ethos of strong postulates of the Fluxus movement, Broshuda incorporates them into his own artistic attempts, which results in detailed sketches that simultaneously reveal and hide their internal logic, providing a number of carefully filtered emotions. He prepares his performances with particular events in mind and they always include new and previously unheard recordings, making each and single one of them unique and unrepeatable.
Ceglarek (Piotr Ceglarek) – a half of the C&D duo (http://ceglarekdybala.com/), cofounder and curator of Katowice Sound Department. As part of his solo project, he creates various improvised sound structures, where the themes are synthetic environmental phenomena, primeval rhythmicity and time shifts. He engineers his sound with the use of a modular synthesizer and dub techniques.
Ronnie Deleen – an all-round audiovisual artist. He began his musical career with the Ronniesm project, the elements of which – such as an original instrument, animations and 8-bit music – created a multimedia performance. Within the frame of the RGBoy he explored the potential of 8-bit music in a club convention. As the co-creator of Teleport Katowice, he focused his performances on old analogue synthesizers, tape delays and modular synthesizers, which constituted a base for experiments with electronic music. He’s currently living in London, where as the lecturer of the Royal College of Art he regularly organizes events devoted to musical experiments performed by students and himself. As Ronnie Deelen he creates sound landscapes and rhythmical experiments with the use of a modular synthesizer.
DJ Eliot (Charlotte Giraudot) – an experienced audiovisual artist who polished her skills during radio shows for NTS, Worldwide FM and Balamii. Her precision, heightened hearing when it comes to deep sounds and a good sense of rhythm earned her a resident status at Coastal Haze and Church in London. Charlotte is working with a few record labels and collectives, she’s passionate about different genres, and her shows and sets are a combination of sensual and introspective sounds.
Fischerle (Mateusz Wysocki) – he’s into electroacoustic music, fabricated field recordings, radio shows about ethnic minorities, dub techno and instrumental hip-hop. He has already presented his sound installations in Poland, Greece, Ireland, the US, Italy and a few other countries. He regularly cooperates with Lech Ninartowicz (Porcje Rosołowe), Michał Wolski (Mech), Łukasz Kacperczyk (Bouchons d’Oreilles), Krzysztof Ostrowski (Ifs) and Micromelancolié. He’s published his work on Monotype Rec, Where To Now?, Crónica, Astral Spirits, BDTA, Wounded Knife and many other labels. Together with Lech NIenartowicz, he’s running a tape label Pawlacz Perski. He is also the author o children books “Skrytki” and “Las Zabaw” illustrated by Agata Królak.
Grupa Etyka Kurpina (Adam Frankiewicz) – a theatrical director and founder of an independent label Pionierska Records. As Grupa Etyka Kurpina he performs experimental editing of magnetic tapes. Mixing samples cut out from abandoned magnetic tapes, VHS cassettes and old radio plays, he builds unique radio shows with the use of analogue reporter devices. The background for his musical events are field recordings, improvisations on tape loops and feedback loops. He draws inspiration form the works of musicians involved with the Polish Radio Experimental Studio. So far, he has designed and recorded tens of sound collages released on 8 DIY albums.
Olivia – she has been contributing to the electro scene in Poland for over 14 years – both solo and with her brother Kinzo Chromo as Chrono Bross. Together with Chino, she organizes a series of events called We Are Radar originating from the long gone gallery club Radar, one of the most interesting places in Poland focused on underground electronic music. Recently, she has been performing as part of the Morskie Oko project (together with Chino and Steffen Bennemann). She has been closely involved with the Unsound Festival for years. She is responsible for the music profile of the Szpitalna 1 club in Krakow. She is famous for excellent music selections and impressive technical skills. Her sets are never the same and always surprise with great courage and originality of selected tracks. She’s most comfortable with the sounds of raw and dirty techno, industrial, electro, acid house, ebm, wave synth and italo.
Pole (Stefan Betke) – a musician, producer and sound engineer born in Düsseldorf. His musical achievements set new standards for electronic music and his first three albums – “1” (1998), “2” (1999) and “3” (2000) – are considered milestones of the genre. He’s a bit sceptical about melodies and the common denominator for all his works are reverberations and precise bass lines. In 1999, he joined forces with Barbara Preisinger in starting a label, ~scape Records. That was the year when he also launched his scape-mastering studio, where he works on sound engineering. Pole’s live acts constitute a clash of technical perfection and elements of improvisation. With precision of a construction engineer and incredible intuition, Pole has played in concrete basements, at outdoor events and night clubs, completely transforming every one of these spaces. He performs both at small clubs and the biggest festivals, sharing the stage with the likes of Basic Channel and Kraftwerk.
TM404 (Andreas Tillander) – he made his live debut in the Berlin-based club Berghain during the CTM Festival in January 2013. Since then, he’s been constantly touring around the world. Richie Hawtin is a big fan of Andreas’s music, which resulted in two invites to his original series of Thursday Enter club nights at Space in Ibiza. Moreover, Hatwin included TM404 in his lineup for the Mutek festival in Montreal as well as The Warehouse Project in Manchester.
No wonder that Mr. Plastikman managed to find Tilliander‘s music as it’s one of the aliases of TM404. Depending on the situation, his live acts can be calm and dub-like, but also filled with acid techno when needed. His onstage arsenal encompasses three TB-303s, drum machines, effects and samplers.
Tolouse Low Trax – DJ and producer who, together with Lena Willikens and Wolf Muller, constitutes the core of the DJ crew from the iconic Salon Des Amateurs in Dusseldorf. In the past, the artist was a member of postrock Kreidler, but currently releases solo records on labels such as Antinote, Karaoke Kalk and Themes For Great Cities. Tolouse Low Trax‘s sets are the essence of the unique atmosphere of the Salon. They combine artistic experiments with hypnotic rhythms, from ambient through krautrock to tribe techno. His stage name is a tribute to the 19th century French painter, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec.
