Exoteric Continent is the project of Catalan artist based in Barcelona, Arnau Sala Saez. The ideas portrayed in Exoteric Continent are generally informed by socio-political contrasts that are connected to the constant evolution of technology in contact with human traditions and superstition. Its sound constructions stand between electronic structuralism, uneasy ambient atmospheres and edgy sonics. Rythmic patterns are often lost, at times standing closer to dub than dance music. Behind the concrete layers of sound, pulsations creep and organic textures lead to transparent frames. The qualities of Exoteric Continent’s sound were widely showcased in a large number of releases on such labels as Hospital Productions, Opal Tapes, amongst many others.
The music of Max Eilbacher draws upon the European traditions of electroacoustic and musique concréte composition, the intuitive American free noise underground, and the abstract edges of processing-intensive computer music. Recent records have been released by Spectrum Spools, Fogged Records, anòmia, NNA Tapes, and a series of self released cassettes. He has toured extensively through North America and Europe with collaborations and solo projects.
die Reihe is the most recent project of Jack Callahan, a composer and sound engineer based in New York City. He graduated from Hampshire College in 2012 with a BA in Music Composition & Theory. In 2011 he studied privately with Jürg Frey in Aarau, CH. His music has been performed and recorded by numerous individuals and ensembles such as the SEM Ensemble, the Wet Ink Ensemble, the Janacek Philharmonic Orchestra & the Dog Star Orchestra in such cities as New York, Los Angeles, Amherst, Zürich & Ostrava. Since 2014 he has run Bánh Mì Verlag, an imprint dedicated to contemporary experimental music and culture.
LAG OS is the new solo project from Rubén Patiño (Barcelona, 1979), an artist working in the field of electronic music and visuals while explores the limits of concert, public event and installation.He has released on labels such as Anòmia, Free Software Series and Alku amongst others and has upcoming records on Anòmia, HyperMedium and Ge-Stell.
Patiño is part of N.M.O. a rolling computerized ceremonial aerobics unit that together with Morten J Olsen. operates in a hybrid territory between club music, performance and inventive forms of sound spatialisation. Rubén Patiño has also collaborated with Arnau Sala aka Exoteric Continent and with Roc Jiménez de Cisneros in Super-boredom, a series of multi-channel audio pieces that uses an extremely rigid temporal structure. This occasion would be one of the first appearances as LAG OS a project based on the idea of generating sounds from a mysterious swamp that moves in between viscous mud, watery abstract landscapes and acidic tonalities.It will be presented as an audiovisual performance that explores the creative possibilities of code, text and synthetic sound.
