Che Chen is a New York based multi instrumentalist who takes care of the highly complex guitar riffs of 75 Dollar Bill. He is as well a master in subtile acoustic improvisations. He played together with a.o. Tetuzi Akiyama, Robbie Lee and Chie Mukai.
The future of music is — if she wants or not — wild, sloppy and psychedelic garage rock, where the Bay Area stops and the Danish underground begins. New Rock Radicalism will be its name. Timeless reality are the vanguards of this new metamorphosis of r
Vimeo meme and unlikely underground duo from Newcastle. With crappy synths and vocal processor they produce their own unique blend of outsider pop music. The world is there stage, as they express through their perfomances the need that music has be amo
The new brainchild of Dennis Tyfus and Floris Vanhoof. Angry and grandiose music from the place where a rural synaesthesia poet and a urban collage artist meet eachother.
Clash of two Belgian underground titans, at one side Bart 'Father Sloow' De Paepe, at the other Timo Van Luijk. Sloow is the head honcho of the legendary tape label Sloow Records, and will present a retrospective book at the festival. Timo Van Luijk is
Ghentish strong force in its cassette-based underground. Mixes crappy acid, hair metal and sound collages with a firm hand.
Księżyc is since their debut album, released in 1996, the best kept secret of Poland. Their music is an update of old Slavic folk music, in which electronic treatements and avant-garde spectralism are merged into songs which display an intense and prof
Mark Fell (half of IDM outlet SND) focusses on the sonic version of a singularity. He deconstructs rave and electronic music to produce compositions and sound installations which are modernist critiques in themselves. Spatiality, pure sound synthesis a
Legendary cult composer and percussionist which created a unique version of American minimalism. With gongs, Tuvan throat singing, and stripped down analogue electronica he composed the revolutionary and meditative album Antico Adagio somewher
Rick Brown and Che Chen form one of the most bizarre r'n'b duo's of the Western world. With complex guitar riffs and street musician-style percussion the inject the dead genre with Sun City Girls-like jams and polyrhythms. Wherever they play, under a b
TLR is the solo outlet of Robert Beatty, also know for his neo surrealistic covers for Hieroglyphic Being and Tame Impala, and noising down Hair Police. As TLR he explores a bizarre world in which horror soundtracks, modular synthesis and post-industri
The unofficial kings of the Brussels music revolution which is called Crap Wave. They are not afraid to spit in your face, throwing beers and piss off would-be and real punks. A band we love.
There is something happening in Poland, based on the excellent s/t VHS by the crossmedia duo Widt (Antoinette Nowacka and Bogumiła Piotrowska). With analogue video, vocal and electronics they create a psychedelic jungle which bears references to the Pi
Satanic, filthy and razor sharp crust punk, spit out by the Anderlecht underground. A superband with roots in bands which make your 14 year old niece pie in her bed. Like the notorious Bear Bones, Lay Low and Weird Dust.
Explosive mix of ragtime and trash metal. With just a distorted banjo and some pots and pans, Au Bout de Mon Sang gave the show of the year somewhere in 2014. The facts: it's a duo with parts of the band Charnier, they are rooted in the underground of
The New Wave of Northern England noise has finally arrived. Until 3 years ago, the scene was led by VCO and side projects, but a couple of youngsters took over the sceptre. Guttersnipe is one the hardest outfits, guitar & drum are their tools to ma
Coàgul is the musical project of the visual artist Marc O'Callaghan (Barcelona, 1988). In a desperate historical ultimatum to fight the dissolution and dispersion of the modern world, Coàgul's main function is to concentrate the energy of certain cosmi
Hard dystopian technoise made by the Brussels based underground star Matthieu Levet. He forms with fellow Brussels undergrounder TG the band Pizza Noise Mafia.
Selected by Gonzalez Entertainment.
Australian prototype of the underground label boss: sympatico, an intense stare, and a great taste for music.
Floris Vanhoof is next to great artist himself, more and more a highly acclaimed curator of film programs that open your mind for a next level cinematic experience.

Octatanz is a web magazine filled with audio and visual expressions of the inexhaustible music scene mostly inspired by the 80's. Behind Octatanz are two people who accidentally met through their shared interest in music in October, 2012. Oscar der Win
Apart from a world famous artist, a key figure in the Wiener Aktionismus movement and master within his Gesamtkunstwerk, is Hermann Nitsch a composer. His works are transcendental organ recitals that make even the most thourough hardcore minimalist loo
