Kasia Justka z electrocute
Umami Lab feat.Ememe
is an experimental transversal collective, proposing live sound and graphic performances based on improvisation and exchange. The artists express themselves in line with the space and the public. Interested by the synergy of disciplines and the means of expressions, Wojtek Bajda and Mathilde Domecq explore a ground constantly renewed, calling for spontaneous cooperations with artists in the field of expression.
is a Voiz (Non-FX Voice Noise) performer who seeks for the sharpest
sound by running about between Noise (Abstract / Nerves) and Hardcore (Concrete
/ Muscle) with no electronic FX but just a couple of amplified microphones.
Kazehito belongs to a particular scene in Japan, influenced by hardcore music,
subculture, and what a western would see as Tokyo’s sonic ghetto culture.
Kazehito’s approach to the voice as an instrument demonstrates his flexibility,
oscillating between subtle sinewaves and brutal white noise in a microsecond,
For more than a decade, Kazehito has
been blasting his voice in a hardcore band. After several years of fusing his
voice with electronic noises, in 2012 started his solo activity without
electronics, besides joining in a Voiz group called “Tokyo Voiz Choir”
organaized by William Tokuhisa. At the same time, toured in Korea with his two
bands: “Omawarisan” and “Ameri B.C”. Nowadays, besides his solo and many bands,
he collaborates with various kinds of artists including musicians and dancers.
He also teaches training and keeping the voice safe, because after all — the
voice is and was (always) the primordial instrument.
Martí Guillem Spain
Heterodox artist, who manipulates electronic devices, sounds, images, videos, actions and objects, where it often becomes unusual, unique. Improvisation, experimentation and diy (do it yourself), are combined, irreverently but reflexive, mostly in ephemeral proposals.It is characterized by a fresh and changing language that reflects on the social habits and the relationship between creativity and everyday life.
Marti seems convinced that ‘the mystery’ is before us, and he shows to us. His creative discoveries tell us in some way, that ‘we can start from here something that will take us very far. “When he wants is an irreverent educated and / or make beautiful things and / or show you the beauty of what others call ‘ugly’. The pleasure he experiences is perceived and feels almost like an act of generosity that invites you to attend. Marti is one of those artists who in their artistic approach is much of the message. He is the surprise ” (text by Alvaro Pichó)
