Ewa Justka is a Polish artist currently living and working in London. She travels the world encouraging humans to get involved with the nitty gritty of electronic music through her DIY synth building workshops. Describing her music as ‘acid technoise’ gets us some way to understanding her aesthetic but we find it hard to put her music into words….which is why we love it. In her own words she is also interested in the notion of materiality of objects, vibrant, ontological systems (human bodies, electronic circuits, integrated circuits: varied range of micro and macro environments and relations between them) and an investigation of modes of quasi-direct perception through extreme light and sound actions, electronics, hardware hacking, breaking, deconstructing, wiring - or, to put it bluntly - designing synths and playing hard techno.

Kettokai. After discovering each other in Melbourne several years ago, the duo create moody rave music that celebrates digital and organic sounds. Acid bass lines and distorted kicks are disrupted by breakbeat and hesitating rhythms. Momentary dissonance fused with sweeping vocals and warm melodic intervals illuminates their exploration of duality.

Sooji is a multi-instrumentalist based in Melbourne. She plays bass in beat-pop trio Empat Lima, and performs as one half of Anuencia, an audio-visual investigative project engaged in site-specific performances.  Sooji has most recently been engaged with investigations into the synthesizer collection at MESS, bewitched by the endless possibilities of sonic experimentation. A driving element behind all of these projects is her desire to express a voice that is unencumbered by cultural baggage and genre-restrictions, and reflects a contemporary intersection of influences as a first-generation ‘Australian’.
