NK Projekt / the immanent lie
Video Screenings Curated by Rumpsti Pumsti (Musik)
John Duncan portrays his work as a catalyst, inciting a transmission of energy through which he seeks to compel the audience to actively participate in the process of investigation and self-discovery. His lengthy career of electroacoustic intensity and confrontational performance art events is the result of rigorous investigations into a number of arcane, metaphysical, and at times transgressive themes. (Jim Haynes, The Wire)
Dirk Paesmans is a part of the Jodi collective together with Joan Heemskerk, and has since the mid-1990s been creating original artworks for the World Wide Web.
Pan Label Night Concerts: Bill Kouligas / John Wiese / Eli Keszler
Eli Keszler is a composer, artist and multi-instrumentalist based in New York City. In performance, he often plays drums, bowed crotales and guitar in conjunction with his installations. In his ensemble compositions, he uses extended strings, motors, crotales, horns and mechanical devices to create his sound, balancing intense harmonic formations with acoustic sustain, fast jarring rhythm, mechanical propulsion, dense textures and detailed visual presentations.
The sonic works of John Wiese (categorised as harsh noise) create feelings of unease in even the most seasoned experimental music audience. They can be recognised by their constant, idiosyncratic and unpredictable changes in dynamics – from total loudness to absolute silence – and cuts between drastically different sound materials.
Bill Kouligas is a sound artist, composer and designer who also runs the sound art label PAN. He has collaborated with the likes of Joseph Hammer, Destroy All Monsters, C Spencer Yeh, John Olson, Christian Weber, Chris Corsano, RLW, Kouhei Matsunaga among others.
NK is an artist run independent non-profit organisation dedicated to Sound Arts. The interest is in taking part in the creation and support of a ‘culture’, with a focus on experimental music. To this end NK organises public events that promote non-mainstream cultural production, and provide a platform for discussing paradigms in music and its problematics. Their project at transmediale 2012 includes three installations experimenting with acoustic elements.
