hp.stonji

The Austro-German twosome hp.stonji(Hans Platzgumer & Jens Döring) let their powerbooks float from sharply cut hightek breakbeats to sinister ambient soundscapes with an imminent sense for melodies and a constant demand for the unexpected. Their condensed offbeat electro tracks, always on the verge of collapsing, still remain calm and touching in their harsh strange beauty.

Krowley

In terms of his artistic talent, innsbruck based Krowley is highly predisposed. with sweet 17 he decided not to become a schönberg piano prodigy, but to produce heavy beats for berlin's hip hop scene. the multi-instrumentalist's tunes feature heavy downbeat, including newer dubstep influences. His stylistic spectrum lies somewhere in between warp, various and anticon.

CHRA


CHRA

CHRA ist the soloproject of Christina Nemec. She likes to play and stretch low frequency sine waves, granulated through a small program called soundeffects, and manipulated via logic, ableton live, 4-track-recorder, sampler - like a roadmovie for your ears. Main topics: landscapes, territories, silence, unexpected things and history.

"networking on a feminist approach are my favorite goals. as i am a woman I would never call my music feminine. there are so many genders you can celebrate oder you are forced to suffer in repressive systems. we are far from equal rights and treatment for non-fits and women. so we still fight for being not stereotyped!!!!

music is a proper medium to work on topics. it's not only entertainment but it is! where would I be without blondie, joan jett, laurie anderson, lydia lunch, kim gordon, siouxsie sioux and many more? in a small village at the countryside? they helped me to leave home and to try out things and not having to look like a model. i started playing bassguitar - i still do. but in the meantime digitally and analogue produced sounds are my language. from abstract to electropop from ballade to heavy metal. low frequencies touching the body. you can not resist!"

Lt. Thrombose


Lying in the sun, melting, breaking down between basslines, helplessly screaming in the darkest part of the wood. Lt. Thrombose is drone beats, screaming feedback plus sampling fun.

Krach der Roboter

Sunom


After some musical youthful follies unnecessary to be specified, his journey leads young Innsbrucker Sunom to more individual and experimental sounds, such as hashed beats and breaks or liquid spheres and even raspy singing. Nevertheless he only profits from the fact that air transports acoustic noise with 1234.8 kilometers per our. This phenomenon has already been used by other musicians.

Washer


Wheras beats took the centre stage in the past works of Linz resident Washer, his newer stuff is affected by a more abstract mood and field recordings. His music could be described as an arrangement of delicate small gestures creating a big reverberating atmosphere, which opens out into a rewarding and intense listening experience.

Konsul Gnadenwalze


Born under adverse circumstances of “dramatic geometric”, Konsul Gandenwalze is the Linz based alter ego of two gifted musicians. On stage they combine energetic live shows with minimalistic visuals. Aside of the performances they are creating their own elaborate Konsul Gnadenwalze universe. A loveley mixture of pseudo-scientific and poetic references.
