Melting is an electronic music project of Ana Filip (aka Chaosdroid) and Adam Dekan.

“ana a adam play because they love sound. they love noises, rhythms, drones, and they love machines, instruments and voices alike. they try to melt them all together, combining live generated sounds with stolen samples. the threads uniting their sounds are emotion and story and their performance flows freelyand impredicatable both for them and for promo texts. all they hope is that people will listen. and love sound too.”

lowii is the Latin name for carnivorous plant and also for orchid. These plants grow profusely on the island of Borneo.
lowii is also the new audio-visual project from Jonatán Pastirčák aka Pjoni, painter Katarína Sido, and programmer Igor Rjabinin who technologically transforms live painting into light projections of coordinates and constellation. It is live animation that proceeds from the transmission of a painting into midi signal that thus also influence the concert audio component. It is based on both ambient and hustle electronics and both modified as well as classic sounds of violoncello.

The contrast is important topic here. lowii connects melancholic and nostalgic sound areas with echoes of hard beats and elements of sound destruction. One of the main characteristics here is the use of image and sound as mutually influencing components.

This Slovak (currently Czech/Slovak) band was established in the early 1990s. The early experiments later led to ultimate death-industrial sound which brought Einleitungszeit status one of genre top-classics. Longtime original set-up changed in 1999 when P-01 (Patryc Cyber) was replaced by hallucinatory throat of Czech mamber Martin Jarolim (from VO.I.D). P-01 capitulated and still dedicates himself to his solo project Simulacrvm which debut CD Zevgma was released two years ago on Old Europa Café.

After many releases are Einleitungszeit well-known worldwide nowadays and their live performances have been seen by audiences not only in Slovakia and Czechia but also in Poland and Germany – with more then positive reaction and successful acceptance. Besides Polish tour are also planned the European and American ones for 2001 (Fire Martyr US Tour).

The very first tapes Die Menschzerstörung, Menschliche Destruktive Zivilisation and Kremation
Gesch-Lechtslos were released by Slovak Crewzine. This material was followed by LP Aus dem Laboratorium on German Art Konkret label. Another release L´accouchement des machines humaines was realized on Finnish label Freak Animal. Afterwards American cult Recalcitrant Noise took care about this project and the results were two vinyl albums R Mensch I Tanatologie (2lp) and Aus der Leichenkammer which was censored on Slovakia because of quite shocking and unacceptable cover.

During 1999 was recorded and released first Einleitungszeit CD Doba uvodu, unfortunately after split of the original set-up and leaving of Patrick. This could be called as a truly memento of the „old time Einleitungszeit”. First Einleitungszeit video release Schrei des Feuers (organic live performance 1999) was released on ars morta universum on the eve of 1999 and the second one Hirnlarm (inhuman solarized vision of live performance from 1997)on the same label a year later.

Now different labels plan re-releases of mentioned older stuff – Die Menschzerstörung CD should be released on Black Plagve, LP Menschliche Destruktive Zivilisation should appear in the catalogue of Recalcitrant Noise and LP / CD Kremation Gesch-Lechtslos will be put out by ars morta universum.

Einleitungszeit live actions are very intense, often described as „negative or destructive”, but they have more common with ecstasy when R-01 uses grinder directly on his chest (protected only with thin metal plate) or burning his hands with asbestos gloves or grinding an iron band around his neck.Sometimes, these emanations of joy could not be left without a harm; R-01 was burned or hit by electricity for many times.

The sound is absorbing, clear and powerful. Forty minutes of their stage storm brings ecstasy and feelings of transformation through sound, spirit and fire. The imagery of master-slave relationship, the embodiment of human alienation, those are information transmitted by the cyber-apostles for the next century, for hybrids and clons century.

Acidmilk – synthesizers, helicon, vocals
Avoided – guitar, violin, drum machine, vocals
Hlukas – fx boxes, various sound generators

Charming Assistant is an experimental noise/ambient band from Bratislava, Slovakia. Acidmilk and Avoided are the core band members, with frequent help from hLukas of the famous Morda Noise System. Relentless walls of electronic noise are combined with heavily effected instruments which include violin, didgeridoo, helicon from a vacuum cleaner and sparse use of vocals and demented chaotic screams. They have a couple of minimalistic recordings, but they prefer playing live, for the most part improvised performances coupled with absurd video projections.

Bolka (Matus Kobolka) is known as the hot guy who is into glitchy microtonal compositions and whose cap has a very wide fanbase. His work is strongly connected to glitch culture, as well as to academic electroacoustic music. He is a composer, performer and open-source enthusiast based in Bratislava. Bolka’s practice has shifted from free-improvised electronic music to more rigorous tactics embracing comedy, “genre-bending”, and repurposing popular music techniques. He aims for estranging computer music along with the ways of performing it live, which often leads to explicit abuse of technology and playful sonic outcome. He uses a custom-made software written in SuperCollider programming environment in combination with naïve hardware solutions.

In 2012, he released his glitchy, digital maximalist debut split album with Jonáš Gruska under LOM label. In 2016, he graduated from the Institute of Sonology in The Hague. Lately he has been involved with theatre sound design and with the laptop band HRB/BOL he started with his partner DJ BOL.

Psychedelic Cirkus – a band founded in the town of Zlate Moravce, Slovakia in 2000 – is currently composed of two band members: Michal_eMPe_Pekar and Tomas_Psy_Gafrik.
At the time of band’s formation, the band followed mainly the philosophy of punk and jazz, and later, since 2004 up to the present time, the band’s major focus is on electroacoustic & experimental music and multimedia.
Since 2000 the project has undergone a considerable change in progressive musical development. Psychedelic Cirkus, which once used to be a band of three musical instruments: bass, drums, guitar, has reached a phase when the production of experimental music is carried out by the means of analogue radio radio art, emission of a variety of sounds from musical instruments and microphone records recorded outside in the street or at home.
Recording and sound production has become characteristic of Psychedelic Cirkus’s original production. From the musical aspect, live performances are based on the philosophy of freedom of expression, the hardness of expression, and trips to new dimensions – and are largely improvised. Psychedelic Cirkus has had several own concerts; we have participated in the electronic music events – mostly drum & bass parties. We have performed along with DJs and cooperated with several musicians. Moreover, we have released a number of samizdat albums and cooperated with the experimental studios of the Slovak Radio.
Between 2003–2008 RED & GREY was a key project which was based exclusively on the cooperation of its two principal members Empe & Psy – this project revealed most the experimental nature of the band. Currently Tomas_Psy_Gafrik is the leader of the project. The band’s production and musical expression involves noise, radio art, ambient, break beat & bass, loops, etc. … all sounds are the output of Psychedelic Cirkus.

Noise Mortanna (ex-Sperm Boiler) was found on May 2005 by Morth as a one man band project or as I was saying in that time “just for fun stuff”. Later on I recorded a very shitty sounding “Blood, Sperms, Rape, Incest, Postal and more”. Next more-listenable demo was “Help me Im Being Raped”. And the last, never finished demo “Untitled” with only 6 tracks. Old Sperm Boiler sound was mainly electro/techno with pig vox and somewhere bassguitar. This THING was put on ice for a long time, and I was not planning to ressurect it. In Jan 2009 a fellow guy contact me and questioned me “Hey man, you play in a band K-Anal? Do you wanna do some live gig?” (that is the first creation of mine, nowadays I have a vox there and fellow dIGIMURDER makes all the rest, thanks to him, K-Anal can continue.) And I sayed “Nope, we’ve got only few songs.” then we scramble a while, and than it happened, Sperm Boiler has been resuscitated. First live gig was in Jan 2009 and i played old stuff, do a little like-noise-show. Second gig was in March and I played speedcore-extatone-noise-like music. Few days later Sperm Boiler renamed to Noise Mortanna. And now we’re getting to this noise-only point. All the future shows, recordings will be noise only, including performances.
