Mr. 76ix, Bola, Ruistuin, Psiox, Pixybox Visual Projects, Karl Klomp aka MNK, Florian de Visser, Sjush, DJ H4LO
This is the fourth edition of the Adapter Collective´s experimental audio/video project. Each edition a number of live electronica artists are linked to an equal number of video artists. This allows for one-off, mainly improvised a/v-performances unique to this particular night. This time in collaboration with the Manchester based legendary Skam records.
Mr. 76ix (Skam/Gescom/UK)
Skam’s mystery man Mr76ix shuns the limelight but wows live audiences with his fine-tuned technoid superstructures and acidic undertones. He has released 4 albums on Skam records. His recent album “Experiment Four” came after a 5 year hiatus. It fluctuates wildly between crisp, break-driven glitch and darkwave moods. Fans of older Squarepusher, Mu-ziq and AFX, beware!
Pixybox visual projects (Adapter)
PixyBox’s distinctive vj style and brute visual force combines custom-made material with animation and real life footage mixed at times with iconic popculture imagery.
Seems to work in his own little Bola world where trends and fashions in electronic music pass him by. His recordings are few and far between. Labeled 'intelligent music' and marked by a certain sacred quality, Bola's compositions will call your body -and your mind - to the dance floor. His appearances are so rare, we are still shocked we could win him for this edition of Vertigo.
Karl Klomp /MNK
MNK is media artist - vj - theater technician. His research focus on live audiovisual expressions and interfacing with a fascination for glitch-art, hyper kinetic audio visuals and glitch grabbing.
The thick smoke has disappeared. Early sun rays are shining over the massive destruction. In the distance some sounds can be heard...
Florian de Visser
Graduated cum laude from Design Academy Eindhoven. His projects are storytelling and always contextual trying to trigger people’s imagination of their environment.
The music of Psiox aims for a wide sonic palet. Retro-futuristic sounds take on a life of their own, resulting in an interstellar listening experience and eclectic live performances.
Graduated from the HKU vj Sjush likes to play and experiment with a combination of sound and vision, focused on video design and live visual performances.
