Invisible Architecture
(Chrs Galarreta and Janneke van der Putten)

Invisible Architecture is a collaborative project by Chrs Galarreta & Janneke van der Putten. Minimal changing vocal tones and electromagnetic sounds of broken hard disks meet in the speakers to modulate each other. This results in a very physical and intense sound experience that enhances the acoustics of the spaces where they play.



Tilde (Attila Faravelli, Nicola Ratti and Enrico Malatesta)

Tilde is trio that consists of Attila Faravelli, Nicola Ratti and Enrico Malatesta. They create  sonic interventions, which are at the same time separated from and responding to each context, site, space and environment, where they perform, as if caring about this gap or just dealing with it expanded and destabilized both the performers and their surroundings. With objects, a snare drum and few analog synthesizer’s modules they address the mutual relationship between artificially produced sound and specific sonic spaces, which respond with unlimited aural possibilities, both imagined and real.


Kacper Ziemianin

“This performance tries to address the problem of live electronic music that has haunted it from its very beginning and that has always been interesting for me – how can the audience relate to what the performer is doing? What makes the live electronic music really live? In my case every visible action causes an audible reaction, so in a way ‘what you see is what you get’. By using various light sources and sensors I explore possibilities of this instrument, which doesn’t try to imitate any existing model, but rather tries to create something new”.


About the Wonderwerp series

Wonderwerp is a monthly performance series presenting radical artistic practices that engage with sound, image, space and the body:  imagining new tools to articulate everyday phenomena, extending the body, remapping sense perceptions, hacking and reinventing existing media and codes, creating time and space for events which find their preferred storage medium in the memory of participants.
