DMSTFCTN and SKY H1 present a hybrid screening of DMSTFCTN's debut short film INTERFACE CHAOS, featuring a version of the original soundtrack composed by SKY H1 for the film and performed live on the night.
A live set by SKY H1 will precede and then flow over the screening, with monastic, atmospheric composition setting the mood for it.
"There's no script, just an act.”
The short film INTERFACE CHAOS explores nonhuman intelligence through the story of two entities on a journey for survival: money and a unique species of palm trees, coexisting in the archipelago of the Seychelles.
DMSTFCTN studies the intensities of late capitalism.
Notable performances include CTM Festival 2020 at Berghain, Berlin, Borderline Festival 2018 at Onassis Cultural Centre, Athens, and Radical Networks 2018 at Spektrum, Berlin. In 2019, the German label Mille Plateaux released ‘Flash Demons’, a collection of their sound performances.
DMSTFCTN's first solo exhibition was held at Aksioma Institute for Contemporary Art, Ljubljana in 2020. Notable group exhibition include the 1st Porto Design Biennale, the 4th Istanbul Design Biennale, transmediale face value and at Fotomuseum Winterthur.
Their film work was recently screened as part of Hyperdub's monthly party Ø at Corsica Studios, AntiUniversity Now, London Design Festival and at Trust Berlin.
DMSTFCTN was the recipient of the 2017-18 Vilém Flusser Residency Program for Artistic Research supported by Transmediale and of the 2019 Design Systems Residency supported by Porto Design Biennale.
The Belgian producer SKY H1 debuted on Berlin's Creamcake Label in 2015, and soon after signed to PAN's sublabel, Codes, releasing the widely acclaimed 'Motion' EP.
The following year saw SKY H1 appear on PAN's 'Mono No Aware' compilation, which was trailed by remix work for HELM, and Soho Rezanejad.
Her ethereal performances have seen her programmed widely across Europe, and she has made a number of appearances in the US, Canada, Japan, China and Russia. Notable performances include CTM festival, Unsound, New Forms Festival, Centre Pompidou, Todays Art and Atonal.
tIncreasingly, SKY H1 has been performing in more versatile settings such as galleries and modular art spaces, and occasionally in collaboration with visual artists.
