In continuation from her previous summer show at OTO, London's PAN-affiliate, producer, writer and DJ, Flora Yin-Wong curates an evening showcasing contemporary electronic artists from different cities, working across everything from dissonant noise, fragmented jungle, and hyper-EBM, to field recordings. The night will see live sets from Giant Swan's Mun Sing, Nokuit of the elusive cassette label NKT/wannamarchi.club, and Berlin-based, UK-raised producer, Ausschuss.
One half of the Giant Swan project, Bristol-based Mun Sing’s solo endeavour experiments with ideas of inclusivity and positivity, influenced by the mainstream by injecting pop’s marketing methods into the more serious, austere club world. His uncompromising ingenuity of sonic weaponry explores fragmented cyber grime, neo-EBM, radioactive trap, and amplified dissonant noise. Mun Sing is Harry Wright’s tool to challenge the conventions and aesthetics of modern day club culture. Dance routines, obnoxious visuals and brash costumes feature in the live show, where he uses these elements as a means to highlight inclusivity, movement and fun.
Young Berlin-based, UK-raised producer Ausschuss works with dark, industrial-influenced sounds through abrasive textures and sound design. Having remixed the likes of Scintii, Soda Plains and Acre and featured on the Co-Op compilation from Ziur, alongside M.E.S.H., Umfang, GIL so far, his debut record will be out end of the year. His often foreboding and overtly tense productions such as ‘Mantle’ and ‘Regolith’ fluctuate between abstracted dystopian, mechanical movements, whilst his Berlin Community Radio residency and mixes for the likes of Primitive, Disc Magazine and Astral Plane showcase his more techno-influenced tastes.
Founder of the cassette label NKT and co-founder of experimental music & contemporary arts project wannamarchi.club, London-based Nokuit is a producer, sound artist and film composer. Following previous releases ‘Analysis Paralysis’ and ‘Reality Disappears After Waking’ which explored paranoia and inner conflicts, his latest album ‘Patterns of Instability’ digs further into themes of dissociation and alienation, as well as collective and political implications. His work mines the space between dissonance and harmony through a murky, melancholic blend of field recordings, visceral sound design textures and deep rooted melodic layers.
London-born, Chinese-Malaysian producer, writer and DJ, Flora Yin-Wong works with field recordings, dissonance, and influences from contemporary club culture. Her debut releases via Berlin label PAN's ‘mono no aware’ double LP, and 'City God', a tape release on New York’s PTP - were inspired by Daoist traditions in regards to tutelary deities and the afterlife - and will have forthcoming material due on PAN this year. Besides contributions to Objects Ltd and Caridad Records alongside Lolina, Amalia Ulman, Oliver Coates etc, she has remixed Giant Swan’s Mun Sing, J Colleran, Halcyon Veil's Celyn June, Eaves, Scintii, and bod (Danse Noire) etc.
She has performed live at the likes of New York’s ISSUE Project Room, Somerset House, Volksbühne Theatre Berlin, and Cafe OTO and the V&A Museum where she has been guest curator, and played at 3HD Festival, Berghain, Corsica Studios, Barcelona’s Razzmatazz, and across Japan, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Seoul, Beijing, Sydney, Milan, Antwerp, Brussels, Copenhagen, Bratislava, and guested on NTS Radio, Know Wave, Boiler Room, and BCR etc.
