Céline Gillain is a musician, video and performance artist living in Brussels. Her work is a hybrid of corrupted pop songs, feminist sci-fi, story telling and dark humour.
After a debut single on mutant pop 7-inch imprint Lexi Disques, her debut LP ‘Bad Woman’ was released on Drama, a sub-label of Zaltan's Antinote Records, in December 2018.
"She strips down pop components, discards most of them, and recombines what's left at unusual angles—a hard blip of percussion here, a stab of melody there, haunting spoken word woven through it all" — RESIDENT ADVISOR
“She sounds, in turn, like an opera diva doing vocal warm-ups in the bathroom and a nefarious character lurking in the shadows in a detective novel” — PITCHFORK
Wojciech Rusin draws inspiration from alchemical and gnostic texts and early renaissance choral music. He released 'The Funnel' LP on Akashic Records in April 2019. He designs and makes 3D-printed reed instruments.
In 2015 he released the album 'Powerflex' under the moniker Katapulto on Olde English Spelling Bee. His music has been featured on BBC Four and he has worked for The National Theatre, The Southbank Centre and National Theatre Wales.
Wojciech will be performing The Funnel with performance artist Jo Hellier (vocals, electronics), and visual artist Stefan Goodchild (modular video synthesiser).
"Rusin builds beautifully eccentric dreamscapes, audaciously blending courtly choir song, prim cello, occult mutterings and technological squawks." The Wire
