Vrtačky po desáté hodině is an experimental and noise music project of Ľubomír Panák (DRAKH) a Slovak programmer, photographer, musician and sound artist (since 2008). He has been also active in the Slovak experimental music scene as a live DJ and an author of remixes. He is a member of the Slovak electronic group ANGAKKUT and plays bagpipes, fujara, flute and pipes in a folklore ensemble GYMNIK. His photos depict mostly urban spaces and his (interactive) digital pieces use intermedial connections and computational possibilities.

Together with Zuzana Husárová, he has created several digital interactive pieces. Their works cross the media boundaries and addresses interactivity, computational possibilities, experience with narrativity, emotionality and haptics in the postdigital age. Their pieces have appeared in several American journals, like Drunken Boat and BathHouse Hypermedia Journal.

Intoxicated by archaetropin in the sound-perforated color swirl, balancing on the edge between concrete and abstract, provoking countless interpretations, like a bathyscape of mind, capturing its audial pareidolias, diving deeper and deeper into the hidden layers of subconsciousness, discovering bizarre creatures in its most inner nooks. There, somewhere in the depth, dwells our true Self.

Solo electronic music project from Poprad. Influence of minimal techno. Constant attempt to capture the atmosphere of empty spaces. Digitaly generated landscapes, errors. Industry.

“I started in 1996. Searching through different genres (breakbeat, drum & bass, techno to hip hop beats) for sound most reflecting my aesthetical preferences. Currently combining dark ambient spaces with industrial textures (whatever that means:)”

“Zelina ye perish off bitch. Carrots work with elements of living in harmony yet so far: it creates tension between them, strikes, and odchádza. Hrabe rata refund in the new aesthetics of sound, exploring the possibility of arrhythmia, dizonans and organic seizures.”

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.

Urbanfailure is a solo project of Michal Lichy. The style of Urbanfailure is ultra-abstract sound-art consisting of microsounds and discreet rhythm textures. Despite the fact that this isn’t meant to be catchy, there are something quite cool about the rhythmic structures of Urbanfailure. Very cold but also hypnotizing thanks to the complex pallet of strange noises coming in and out during playtime.

Live noise deconstruction while structure construction, synthesis of feelings and realization where concept is also a way to use sound as opinion.

Urbanfailure is a one man project… He started to explore electronic sound fields in 1996 via computer and Impulse Tracker in 1997 he recorded his first tape called ‘Try It’. As he started to play live he moved from computer based setup to HW. Actual setup is based on synths, drum machine and pedals.

Member of Slovakian Urbsounds Collective and Vermin party crew.

Two well experienced Slovak artists, Stano Benacka & Marek Piacek, who call themselves “Woofer (basovy reproduktor)” and “Tweeter (vyskovy reproduktor)” use for their performances a very sophisticated freeware called Clanger Theremin. The sound they are producing with the help of two small hardware equipement Mio DigiWalker P560. Characteristic feature for their performances are glissandos: “Woofer” is an expert in frequency response 20-200 Hz and “Tweeter” in 201-20000 Hz. Their first public performance was at the Multiplace festival in Bratislava on 26 April 2008.

Mio – Mio:
“Pro ty, kdo nevěděli, co jsou Mio-Mio zač, mohl být začátek jejich hraní zajímavým výjevem: na pódium přijdou dva chlapi, střední věk, černé nažehlené obleky, čisté bílé košile, kravaty, sluneční brýle; i přes smrtelně vážný výraz v tvářích připomínají Těžkej Pokondr; posadí se na židle, před nimi stůl a na něm leží několik elektrických krabiček, na které ale během představení stejně téměř nešáhnou; oba si vezmou do jedné ruky GPS navigátor, do druhé dotykovou tužku, pouštějí si asymetrický hudební podklad evokující dobu, kdy pojem elektronická hudba znali jen akademici, a začínají; hrábnou tužkou do displeje a… zní to jako theremin. Překvapivé, podivné a fascinující v tom, že výrazové možnosti takového hraní jdou mnohem dál než analogové hrátky s potenciometry a že je to o poznání zábavnější podívaná než digitální hrátky s laptopem. …”

Members: Slavo Krekovic, Marek Piacek, Oliver Rehak (laptops, electronics)

VOICE OVER NOISE is a trio of laptop musicians from Bratislava. They create sample collages out of “stolen footage” material, instantly building a unique puzzle out of bits of our common past and present. Flow of unpredictable situations where Madonna meets Edgar Varèse, old computer game music sound together with the phragments of J.S.Bach’s. Voice Over Noise are the live Recycle Bin of our pop culture: noisy, energetic, sometimes funny, but also sentimental refreshment of our collective memory.

“VOICE OVER NOISE czyli trio w składzie Slavo Krekovic, Marek Piacek, Oliver Rehak, to kolektyw elektronicznych improwizatorów. Wszyscy trzej używają komputerów oraz syntezatorów i innych urządzeń. Piacek studiował w konserwatorium, Krekovic i Rehak są muzykami, dziennikarzami, muzykologami i kuratorami artystycznych wydarzeń w Bratysławie. Połączyło ich poszukiwanie eksperymentalnych form wyrazu, które kanalizują w kolektywnej improwizacji łączącej wiele wątków z szerokiego spektrum muzyki elektronicznej i konkretnej.” – Musica Genera Festival, Poland


RECORDINGS:

O Art, Where Art Thou? A new album by Voice Over Noise, the ‘live plunderphonic’ trio from Bratislava, is out now on Divis Slovakia (2010), distributed by Atrakt Art.
