The use of the unintentional functions of computers, turntables, and stereo equipment is a new phenomena within electronic music. Malfunctioning electronic devices and cracked software produce the clicks, scratches and beeps that the music is based on. The concert program has been arranged in collaboration with leading English music magazine The Wire. In addition, also the trend within the visual arts to employ technical defects with artistic intentions will be demonstrated in a video program full of noise, disturbances, and dropouts.
Performances by KOMET (FRANK BRETSCHNEIDER), ALVA NOTO (CARSTEN NICOLAI), VLADISLAV DELAY and OVAL, with live visuals by video artists DAVID LARCHER, HERWIG WEISER, TIMOTHEE INGEN-HAUSZ, JAN ARLT and TOBIAS AMMAN.
