𝖈𝖗𝖔𝖜𝖉 𝖈𝖔𝖓𝖘𝖔𝖑𝖊 hosts heartfelt and experimental performances within the electronic realm. 𝖈𝖗𝖔𝖜𝖉 𝖈𝖔𝖓𝖘𝖔𝖑𝖊 closes Pilar ASAP with an unruly display of delicate ambient, noise and heavy club music.
Perila – St. Petersburg-born, Berlin-based – explores sensitive borderlines and depths of subtle matter. One of the few artists out there able to convey feelings with silence rather than sound. Her sets build upon thick narratives drifting through a rich sound palette, immerging listeners into a deep and personal experience. Constantly shifting moods and textures of mixes create comfort space for emotions to float, merge and to vaporize.
‘Sometimes I’ll try to make a track with beats, and I’m like, “Oh, cool beats.” But then they become so mechanical and patterned, and I just get bored. And then I delete all the beats and add some chaotic field recordings and I’m like, “Yeah, this feels right.'. (Pitchfork interview)
Nosedrip b2b LazerGazer (SY/NL/BE)
Both spanning different areas of underground electronics, Amsterdam-based Syrian LazerGazer and Athens-based Oostendenaar Nosedrip, will join forces behind the decks for the first time. Infamous for their eclectic taste - so don’t quote us on anything - but you might catch some Arabic drill, proto-trance or deconstructed sounds from all over the globe and ages.
hermeneia b2b Morgan Abend (PL/BE)
Warsaw-based hermeneia and Limurger/wereldburger Morgan Abend play their b2b world premiere. Challenging each other's musical tastes as co-curators at Unsound, their selections will clash (or rather synergize) to a new in-between of breaks, subs and deconstructionisms.
Belgian composer who, by a well-deserved leap of faith, got picked up by none other than Nicolas Jaar, before any Belgian ever heard her tracks.
Weaving oboe, piano and singing into (sometimes harsh, sometimes lush) electronics, she paints an eerie picture to get lost in.
gone icon (BE)
Singer, producer and non-dj, gone icon is a singular voice in post-pop. A sense of infinity fueled with otherworldly mumble, relentless deconstruction & harmonies like cyber-honey. True artistry, blending 21st-era songwriting, synthesis & cyberspace. Post-club, all in favor of emotion.
Oblomov is the solo experimental sound project of Belgian based visual artist Rachel Daniëls. Her compositions are a mixture of modern electronic music and noise music.
Rooted in live coding, 1528DD creates the most delicate songs, rather than techno-y bleeps and bloops for nerds. Witness a striking ability to convey boundless feelings in computer-centered music.
