• Antonina Nowacka
An audio-visual artist, one half of the dark industrial duo WIDT and a member of the enigmatic project Mentos Gulgendo. Her solo work focuses exclusively on the connection between the voice and mental states, the ability to communicate without words, and the speech apparatus. This focus led Antonina to study traditional music for six months in Indonesia, where she also visited the Seplawan Cave. The echoes of the cave and hours spent in the dizzying darkness gave rise to a series of unaccompanied vocal motifs: moans, chants, hums and wordless screams met the millions of years old facades of the stone walls. Antonina then capitalized on this experience in similar sonic conditions of the Polish fortress of Modlin, resulting in the award-winning album Lamunan (the Indonesian word for “dreaming” or “fantasy”). Antonina's free-flowing compositions transport the listener beyond space and time.

• Misty Picture
A music project of Barbora Dehaen Polcerová (Enchanted Lands) and Wim Dehaen (Benelux Energy, Mango Object) examining the attractive aspects of soundfonts and digital environments. Their debut album ‘Lens Blossom’ was released last year by the legendary cassette label Pointless Geometry. It’s an ode to the point-and-click adventure games from the early 90s and their successors. Utopian hypertext, teleportation to mysterious worlds and independent ideal spaces. A nostalgia translated into a futurist sound with (almost) healing effects.

In collaboration with Gin&Platonic collective.
