Tacet Tacet Tacet

Tacet Tacet Tacet is the solo project by Zedde Francesco (also Tonto, Ex A.N.O., Ex Butcher Mind Collapse) born in 2014 as an audiovisual collective. “Perpetual” is the fourth release after the first album-soundtrack “Embodiment”, “Cuncurrence” Split with The Star Pillow and “Parade” Split with M.U.G.
Zedde combines synthetic carpets and complex textures of concrete sounds to create suggestive soundscapes where voices, instruments and rhytmical elements floats.
The first showcase of Perpetual (side A) has been acted on the April 20, 2016 on a site-specific sound system installed on the Tiber river in Rome, with 8 channel spatialization in a space 530×80 m large, on a 42000 watt speaker system, during “Liquidi Volumi” by YCC, a side event of the William Kentridge’s presentation of “Triumphs and Laments”.

Lercher & Nørstebø

Der österreichische Musiker & Komponist Daniel Lercher und der norwegische Posaunist Henrik Munkeby Nørstebø arbeiten seit 2011 an ihrem Duo-Projekt, in dem sie mit großem Fokus auf die Verschmelzung des Klanges ihrer beider Instrumente agieren.
Die reduktionistisch platzierten Klänge unifizieren sich dabei derart homogen in ihrer räumlichen Ausdehnung, dass eine Differenzierung der elektronischen & akustischen Klangquellen an vielen Stellen schwierig wird.
Durch ein eigens dafür programmiertes elektronisches Instrument wird das Klangspektrum der Posaune in Echtzeit analysiert & die so gewonnen Daten auf elektronische Syntheseverfahren projiziert (Sinustöne, gefiltertes Rauschen, Resonatoren).
Experimentelle Spieltechniken an der Poasaune & Analyse-bezogene Klänge der Elektronik strukturieren eine fortlaufende Stille,
die im Wechselspiel mit den erzeugten Klängen neue Konnotationen entwickelt.
2014 veröffentlichten sie ihr erstes Album namens ‘TH_X’ auf dem österreichischen Label ‘chmafu nocords’, welches von zahlreichen internationalen Rezensenten hoch gelobt wurde.
Während einer gemeinsamen Residency im Oktober 2017 auf der norwegischen Insel ‘Sula’ entstanden nun die Aufnahmen zu ihrer zweiten Veröffentlichung auf Schallplatte, gemeinsam mit der Harfinistin Julie Rokseth als Gastmusikerin.
Die neue LP wird Ende des Jahres auf dem renommierten norwegischen Label ‘SOFA’ erscheinen.

Acre works on forms, images and places of music and listening.
The group’s sound is made up of some recognizable music influences, and focuses on the way these influences are dealt
with, letting them “interfere”: the impro praxis of free jazz, the real time elaboration of synthetic sounds, the timbre and
sign research borrowed by academical western music.
After the debut album with Megasound records we are releasing a second album with the portuguese Creative Sources Rec.
The artistic proposal is not so common, but we love to produce what we feel like a necessary and contemporary art form.

The International Nothing

Kai Fagaschinski: clarinet & composition
Michael Thieke: clarinet & composition
The International Nothing is a Berlin-based psycho-acoustic clarinet duo formed by Michael Thieke and Kai Fagaschinski in 2000. They collectively compose multilayered sound sculptures using multiphonics, beat frequencies and difference tones as an integral part of their language. Both musicians are well known as improvisers but in this project they develop and perform exclusively their own compositions.
Every four years the duo releases an album on the Japanese Ftarri Label. In 2018 they are presenting their fourth duo album In Doubt We Trust. While each of the previous releases consisted of several shorter pieces the duo is now going epic for the first time. The new album is made of a single work of 37 plus minutes. 2 ½ years of deep sonic research in seclusion not only yielded a formal change, but also revealed new and yet unheard acoustic scenarios in slow pace and of fragile beauty.
The duo played concerts all over Europe, North America and East Asia, including Donaueschinger Musiktage (2007), Konfrontationen (Nickelsdorf 2008), Experimental Intermedia (New York 2009), Maerzmusik (Berlin 2009), Serralves em Festa (Porto 2010), Internationale Ferienkurse für Neue Musik (Darmstadt 2012), Météo Festival (Mulhouse 2012), Festival International de Musique Actuelle De Victoriaville (2015), Music Unlimited (Wels 2015), Ftarri Festival (Tokyo 2015), and Borderline Festival (Athens 2017).
Together with Christof Kurzmann and Margareth Kammerer the clarinet twins form the experimental pop band The Magic I.D..

“Annabelle Playe deploys a very expressive music with a great dynamic playing with skill of contrasts and not hesitating to put the listener in a space in tension, but which is never an inextricable space. On the contrary, she offers us a sound world in constant mutation.” François Bonnet, Director of INA-GRM and Presences Electroniques Festival (Paris)
“Annabelle Playe plays a lot with the saturation of the sound which inevitably involves the viewer in her performance (as if she was trying to push the limits of our hearing) and at the same time there were very hypnotic, meditative moments (as if she sought to provoke an experience of experience through sound.)” Nina Jeay, Babel production, Crak Festival (Paris)

With my tape loop performances i want to focus on atmosphere, collective mood, melancholy and the hauntological phenomenon.
The endless repetitions, sharpen the acoustic perception and allow the discovery of new sound events.
This image gets distorted and blurred until the focus is placed on the distortion and the blur itself.
Influences of Minimal Music and Ambient, combined with the atmosphere of the hauntology theory and lo-fi aesthetics.
