Michela Pelusio‘s sculptural works are audiovisual experiences of space, light, material and sound. Using seemingly minimal effort, she creates impressive, expansive sculptures based on psychoacoustic research. Her work literally moves between performance and installation, merging art and science into one large Gesamtkunstwerk. A bit like mixing sound, art and quantum physics.

Avant-garde in concept and highly impulsive in performance. The drumming duo Hacklander / Hatam explores the interface between electronic sound art and conceptual drumming. In doing so, sound becomes the medium where the duo explores the space and includes the people present herein. Farahnaz Hatam and Colin Hacklander live and work as part of Berlin’s avant-garde music scene and have presented their work at international festivals and renowned institutions such as the Gropius Bau and the Berlin Atonal Festival.

Berlin-based musician Ioana Vreme Moser sees herself as a sound artist and transmedia storyteller. From electromechanical instruments to sound sculptures to graphic recordings, Moser performatively uses and explores the variety of materials that weave together into an overall narrative in her stories. In doing so, she draws on organic material, found objects, or even trash to realize her audiovisual ideas – which often engage in a contemporary feminist discourse.

To call Pierre Bastien a tinkerer falls far too short. However, it describes well the unique approach of the Netherlands-based musician, in whose works self-built instruments play a central role. Bastian’s fascination with the mechanical is vividly apparent to listeners: The shadow play of the musical apparatuses is projected into the room via video projections that show in detail the finely tuned construction of the machines. The impression of this enigmatic music cinema is reinforced and complemented by Bastian’s playing on conventional instruments, such as the trumpet.
