The artists assembled within this evening have a common penchant for living dangerously – at least when it comes to performance. Accusations of sterility or predictability that may stick with plenty of other electronic live acts do not come into play here. The fearlessness with which these individualists approach their hardware is not merely apparent, it is integral to their working methods and makes for a deep probe into the raw realness of electric currents. Seemingly random events occur when a machine takes on a life of its own, when effects units spiral out of control, when devices running in wild-sync are not avoided but harnessed. This inherent danger while working without a safety net often raises hairs, but the rawness and immediacy that comes in return is what makes each of these very different performers so fascinating.
