# a psycho-social experiment #

Presenting the trans-formalities of body-technologies in a theoretical environment of mythological surrealism where to resist techno-capitalism.

Influenced by noise experimental electronics improv and open source music


Reality / Nicola serra / ALMA / Esther Planas / Medial Ages


Virtual network noise

Reality (Daniil Alexandrov, Robert Pavlovskis and Zhenia Vasiliev) brings electro-acoustic sound work, live video mixing and performativity to investigate the phenomenon of empathy in digital networks. Entymology is an exercise of multi-modal translation: bodies into texts, texts into aural, and of insects’ speech into human speech. Reality asks about the study of communication in insects, particularly those ones living socially. The collective approaches critically the idea of collective action, arguing instead that users are involved on the level of the individual, rather than collective, action frame.


Nicola Serra Il Santo Bevitore

Ritual Ethnics Electronics

Inspired by ancient rites and practices, IlSantoBevitore continues his ethnomusicological research and ethnic electronics. ‘Realm of consciousness’ explores the theme of percussions and shamanism, the connection between each other’s, using repetition codes as a key to hypnotise and trance the listener. This work aims to blur the distance between practitioner and listener. Sound is a mixture of blackened tribal, ritualistic percussions, raw beats, lo-fi noise and hypnotic vocals ceremonials.


ALMA (Ruido & Tiago de Almeida)

Textures Experimental Free-form

ALMA is the on&off project of Ruido and Tiago de Almeida. In the past this duo has created music for theatre, adverts and other dance floor smashers. Nowadays they’ve let go of form and function, focusing purely on tonality and freedom of expression. Ruido collects field recordings which are processed live creating a distorted set of landscapes. Tiago de Almeida experiments with fleshing out the hidden tonality of single note long evolving drones. Together they push each others sonic boundaries, creating a dynamic dialog of textures.


Esther Planas
Performing noise against the backdrop screening of film No Spain No; Time Thief Agent E20162 Channelling chthonic forces dedicated to our repressed and persecuted, imprisoned peoples in Catalonia and in Spain at large by the monarchic state and the legacy of fascism long sinister shadow today. The image is of a bombed site in Barcelona during the Civil War for a film that was made in 2010 for a project specific with La Capella (de Hospital) and BCNProducció/10.


Medial Ages by Laura Netz

DIY electronics and strobe lights

The artist uses optoelectronic oscillators which produce a repetitively modulated wave. The light sources control the circuits modulating the signal. In a sound/light integration, the modulation of tone activates an interactive system based on DIY circuitry. It is a self-generated sonic machine creating a syncopated, high-pitched, noisy beep.
