Concrete Cosmos (Italy)
Concrete Cosmos is a multimedia project by Ivan Re.

This performance is frequently showed with Cell infadel/Aekre.
His collaboration enriches the quality and create several layers, textures of sound.
Those sources come by sound synthesis, field recording editing, sampled sound, objects, electroacoustic instruments.
The visual layer is curated by Hmtl://S, whose work of abstraction from filmed reality aims to stimulate the watcher´s optic sense with blurred shapes, sharp colors.
Because of its complicated nature, no more words could be written to describe this performance which has an exact connection on the place and time when it happens.
B°Tong aka Chris Sigdell is an experimental electronic musician. He developed a soft spot for early industrial textures and pioneering ambient soundscapes while cutting his teeth in cult industrial band NID (1995-2005). A mysterious and shadowy figure he has ended up assembling sounds of such chilling creepiness that it makes Aphex Twin’s Selected Ambient Works Vol. 2 sound like a collection of sugar-coated lullabies. The sound of b°tong feels a lot like an agonizingly slow crawl through a dark tunnel where the dim light at the other end never gets closer.
He builds an interesting body of work that moves in various directions at the same time. From dealings with ambient and isolationism on one hand and experimental music, ranging from the soft microsound end to the more engaging noise end, in a clever combination of ideas…
Since 2005 he has played more than 200 concerts in Europe, Russia, Canada and the USA, and has appeared at various experimental and industrial festivals such as: Norberg Festivalen (S), Temple Of Silence (PL), PNEM (NL), Støy På Landet (N), Monsters Of Rot (IRL), Destroy All Artifacts (UK), Unser Industrie (DE), Ausklang (DE), Shift (CH), Lab30 (DE), Kildemose Festivalen (DK), Zeit Für Lärm (DE), Sinus Series (CH).
b°tong has released over 10 albums on labels like Drone Records (DE), Zoharum Records (PL), Attenuation Circuit (DE), Noecho Records (UK) and Gears Of Sand (USA). b°tong is now signed to Greytone (I) who released “Hostile Environments” on digipack CD and download in 2013. Silken Tofu (B) will release the new album “Prostration Before Infinity” this winter.
Re-Drum is a project of Pavel Aleshin, experimental musician from Russia. He uses field recordings and found sounds, his own voice, acoustic instruments and non musical objects to create a living environment, oscilating from warm calmness to ritualistic depths.
During past years Re-Drum played numerous amount of gigs all over Europe, sharing stage with Tzolk’in, Ratbag, Zbignew Karkowski, Roman Nose, Rovar 17 and others.
