Ephemeral, free-floating moments against a backdrop of deep sound and profound analog release – on the closing day of the Festival, in time-honored morning coffee tradition, the Shitkatapult crew invites us to a matinée gig at .HBC. Together with video artists Transforma, Shrubbn!! present their new album Echos, a simultaneously gripping yet dreamy sound film painted with bass, buzz and susurrus, rich in textured images, crystalline forms and shimmering steely refractions, for the very first time. In contrast, the new ambient noise set from Cristian Vogel delivers dark precision in the measured tones of idiosyncratic arrangements, whereas the sample-based work of CTM co-founder Marc Weiser – one of the Festival’s more frequent guests over the last decade under his Rechenzentrum alias – leans more towards the organic mutability of seethe and bubble. Tonal miniatures from Oval frame the concerts presented at this special matinée, which is kicked off by Thomas Fehlmann on the decks.
