Lucy Railton

April 2021

Berlin/London based cellist Lucy Railton has been an active performer and music producer and composer for over a decade, releasing albums on Modern Love, Editions Mego – GRM Portraits, PAN (with Peter Zinovieff) and Takuroku. Having emerged from a long-term engagement with classical and contemporary music, these recent works exist between modern instrumentalism, electroacoustic composition, improvisation and expressive musique concrète. Her work often focuses on the sonic potential of her instrument and how it serves her experiments in electronic music production and installation work. Over the years she has engaged with a range of interdisciplinary collaborations including those with Rebecca Salvadori, Peter Zinovieff, Catherine Lamb, Beatrice Dillon, Kali Malone and Kadialy Kouyate, the writer Laura Grace Ford, choreographers Akram Khan and Sasha Milavic Davies and has performed in projects lead by Pauline Oliveros, Iancu Dumitrescu, Mary Jane Leach, Cally Spooner, Matmos and Philippe Parreno. Her involvement with some of these artists and their repertoire has occasioned extensive explorations of resonance, psychoacoustics, synthesis and microtonality, preoccupations that are ever present in her own work.

Throughout her twenties living in London Lucy advocated contemporary and experimental music, working extensively across the scene producing events at the Institute of Contemporary Art and Vortex Jazz Club whilst establishing the 10 year long music series Kammer Klang at Cafe Oto and co-founding and co-directing the London Contemporary Music Festival 2013-2016. Also during this time, Lucy freelanced with the ensembles London Sinfonietta, Britten Sinfonia and Ensemble Plus Minus and regularly performed with the pianist Kit Downes, violinist Aisha Orazabayeva and with many individuals in the London improv scene. She has performed at festivals and venues including Dark Mofo (Tasmania), Blank Forms (New York), Cafe Oto, Borealis Festival, Atonal, Koln Philharmonie, Barbican, Berlin Jazz, Donaueschingen, Sydney Opera House, Rewire, AKOUSMA (GRM), Norbergfestival, Centro de Creación Contemporánea de Andalucía and CTM.

Recently she has been focusing on new collaborations and projects in Berlin, including the James Tenney Festival with the Harmonic Space Orchestra, a touring production of ‘Everything that rises must dance’ a performance devised with Sasha Milavic Davies for 200 female participants, co-composing (with Yair Elazar Glotman) the film score for A24’s forthcoming production “False Positive” and new solo works in spatialized sound.

Yair Elazar Glotman

March 2021

Yair Elazar Glotman is a composer and a musician based in Berlin.

Glotman trained in both classical music as an orchestral contrabass player and in electroacoustic composition. His current practice is informed by both of these traditions and employs a range of improvisation, extended contrabass techniques, and a special interest in textural and spatial compositions and combining analog and digital processing.

In recent years, Glotman’s focus has been in composition for film and media, alongside regularly releasing and performing his own music. His work for film has included working closely with the influential, late composer Jóhann Jóhannsson, most notably writing additional music for “Mandy” (2018) and co-composing “Last and First Men” (2020). He scored the forthcoming A24 production “False Positive” together with cellist Lucy Railton. In addition, he has worked with composers Hildur Guðnadóttir, Ben Frost, Geoff Barrow and Ben Salisbury, Dustin
O’halloran and Hauschka, and others. In addition to film and TV, he has composed for dance performances and Opera, most notably designing the Soundtrack for the Royal Opera House in London’s production “Mamzer” (2018) by Na’ama Zisser.

Glotman has released music under his own name as well as under other projects such as KETEV and collaborations with composer Mats Erlandsson and Viktor Orri Árnason. His work has been released on notable labels including Deutsche Grammophon,130701/Fatcat, Bedroom Community, Miasmah and Subtext. He has played at various music and arts venues around the world, including MaerzMusik, KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Volksbuehne, CTM festival, Steirischer Herbst and Atonal festival.

Lyra Pramuk

February 2021

Lyra Pramuk fuses classical training, pop sensibilities, performance practices and contemporary club culture in what may best be described as futurist folk music. While the American operatically-trained vocalist and electronic musician is perhaps previously best known for her work with musical collaborators such as Holly Herndon and Colin Self, she has just released her critically-acclaimed debut album, Fountain, via Iceland’s Bedroom Community label in March 2020.

Created entirely from her own voice, although often shaped and structured by electronics, Fountain is an emotional, sensual, and devotional journey. The title is derived from her family name, Pramuk, which translates from Czech as ‘well spring’ or ‘fountain.’ Often wordless, these songs evoke a new wholeness sustained by the ritual force of drowning, immersion, cleansing, and bathing – also referred to in the album artwork by acclaimed visual artist Donna Huanca. Fountain plays with the perception of music, rhythms, speech, body, and the relation between technology and humanity, exploring a post-human, non-binary understanding of life and the fragile ecosystems it depends on. The work documents a healing that is still in process, and a full circle-moment that reunited Lyra with her sound engineer twin brother, Ben, for the final mix, which they completed in tandem.

As a vocal activist and member of the queer community, Fountain’s creation also coincided with a personal rejuvenation for its author. Its completion culminated in the live premiere of the album material at Unsound Festival in Krakow in 2019, where she performed through a multi-channel array designed by Ben Frost, opening for Sunn O))) and Roly Porter. A closer collaboration with Frost on a soundtrack for a new film project will be announced in 2021. Her performance at Berghain on 30 January for CTM Festival in her hometown of Berlin offered an even more confident and joyous realization of the album’s song cycle.

Lyra moved to Berlin in 2013 as a DAAD postgraduate study scholarship recipient, following her degree at the Eastman School of Music in New York. Since then, she has also been awarded residencies at Elektronmusikstudion EMS Stockholm, Open Port Club Residency in Tokyo and Sapporo, and Future Music Lab of the Atlantic Music Festival in Maine. Her interests also encompass writing, poetry, and fashion, where she is sometimes called upon as a model. As a performance artist, she has collaborated extensively with Donna Huanca and at events such as Glasgow International and the Rochester Fringe Festival.



January 2021

Afriqua (AKA Adam Longman Parker) crafts his mercurial productions with an eye to the future and an ear to the past. At a young age, he straddled the seemingly disparate worlds of classical music and hip-hop, studying piano works while developing his skills as a producer and DJ. Diving into turntablism and b-boy culture, he performed alongside pioneers Jazzy Jay, Grandwizard Theodore, and Grandmaster Caz, formative experiences that evolved into a natural versatility behind the decks.

Born and raised in Virginia, Parker was inspired by the productions of local legends The Neptunes, Timbaland, and Missy Elliot. He went on to study at the Royal Academy of Music in London by day, while receiving the essential nightlife education of institutions like Fabric and Plastic People. He moved to Berlin a few years later, embracing the city’s rich musical offerings.

His early productions as Afriqua caught the attention of independent labels including 2nd Drop Records, Souvenir, and All Inn, where he explored sounds both firmly within the house/techno sphere and unmistakably beyond it. 2017 marked the beginning of an exclusive relationship with R&S Records.

Standout tracks “Soul Correction,” “Chronic Cool,” and his R&S debut “Aleph” have been DJ and crowd favorites alike, and exemplify Parker’s approach to production: weaving deep samples into spacey sonic tapestries, honoring black heritage while propelling it into the future.


Phase Fatale

November 2020

Phase Fatale is the Berlin-based techno project of Hayden Payne.
Since 2014 the New York native has earned a reputation as a techno
innovator, both for the broad spectrum of dystopian, gritty, industrial-
laden electronics included in DJ sets as well as his deep
understanding of synthesis and sound design in his own productions.

Having released his debut album on Hospital Productions (Redeemer,
2017) and 12″s on labels such as Jealous God, Ostgut Ton and its sub
label unterton, Phase Fatale has since settled into residencies at both
Berghain in Berlin as well as Khidi in Georgia’s capital Tbilisi. In 2018
Payne launched his own label BITE.

Phase Fatale’s sharpened rhythmic contours in the context of his DJ
sets draw on a vast repertoire of new and classic references: dark
ambient drones contrast with the raw, punchy dynamics of industrial
and post-punk, cold wave aesthetics combine with 4/4 functionality –
all stitched together meticulously with strong atmospheric sensibilities,
careful and precise mixing.


Jochen Arbeit

October 2020

Jochen Arbeit moved to Berlin in 1980 and became part of the art and music movement Geniale Dilettanten, which had its roots in punk rock and Dada. In 1983 he became a member of the influential instrumental band Die Haut, with whom he toured in Europe and overseas. In 1997 he became an official member of the avant-garde noise band Einstürzende Neubauten, who he first met in the early eighties and has worked on all albums and tours since. Other projects include the Berlin country band The Jever Mountain Boys, the soul band Martin Dean, and painter Martin Eder’s band Richard Ruin et les Demoniaques. In 2006 Arbeit began working with dancer and performance artist Vania Rovisco, which resulted in the project Stupid Green. He also created the music for Abraham Hurtado’s dance piece I was there. In 2009 he composed a sound installation for an exhibition of Martin Eder’s paintings in Dresden, worked with Stupid Green on a performance for the 90th anniversary of the Bauhaus at Theaterhaus Jena and presented and composed the music for Abraham Hurtados performance installation Die Körper ohne Uns in Murcia, Spain and Mexico City. In 2011 he founded the new band AUTOMAT with members Zeitblom and Achim Färber, with whom he recorded various radio plays and played live shows in Germany.

Khyam Allami

September 2020

Khyam Allami is an Iraqi multi-instrumentalist musician, composer, mix engineer and label manager with a formidable and continually growing international reputation. Despite only taking up the Oud – his principal instrument – in his twenties, Allami rapidly became a performer of international renown. His remarkably assured 2011 debut solo album Resonance/Dissonance was widely critically praised and led him to high profile performances across Europe and the Arab world including the BBC Proms (UK), WOMAD (UK), Supersonic (UK), CTM (DE), Incubate (NL) and Irtijal (LB).

Born in Damascus, Syria in 1981 to Iraqi parents, and raised in London from the age of 9, Allami began his musical path by studying the violin for a minor role in the Syrian arthouse film Al-Tahaleb (Rimon Butros, 1990). Following short stints as a violinist in school orchestras in London he moved on to Guitar, Bass and Drums during his teens before continuing on as a Drummer in the metal, post-rock and progressive rock bands Art of Burning Water, Ursa and Knifeworld.

During the US/UK-led invasion and destruction of Iraq in 2003 Allami found himself to be “out of balance” with himself and his history and in 2004 – aged 23 – began to study Oud, Arabic and Iraqi music with Iraqi Oud master Ehsan Emam in London. A year later he enrolled himself into the B.A. Ethnomusicology degree at SOAS, University of London and graduated with a distinction in 2008. After receiving scholarships from SOAS and the British Institute for the Study of Iraq he went on to study for a Masters and continued his research and Oud studies across Istanbul and Cairo with Mehmet Bitmez, Naseer Shamma at Beit al-Oud, Hazem Shaheen and Abdo Dagher. In 2010 he was chosen as the first protege of BBC Radio 3’s prestigious World Routes Academy mentorship scheme which saw perform at WOMAD and London’s Royal Albert Hall broadcast live on BBC Radio 3.

James Young (Darkstar)

June 2020

Since their early dancefloor 12”s on Hyperdub from 2008 and through two vocal-led albums in 2010 (‘North’) and 2013 (‘News From Nowhere’), Darkstar have been an influential force in the UK’s electronic scene. Following collaborations with the likes of Actress, Wild Beasts and Zomby they released their third album ‘Foam Island’, to critical acclaim in 2015 on Warp Records. It was a hugely ambitious record, buzzing with the energy and excitement of all the possibilities currently inherent in electronic music, yet it was also one that was shaped by the prevailing social and political climate at that point in time. Darkstar have continued their dedication to collaboration – releasing music with Empress Of (XL) and Gaika (Warp), collaborating with director Lucy Luscombe and Random Acts for Channel 4, working on ground-breaking live dance performances with choreographer Holly Blakey (Micah Levi) and scoring the Palm d’Or nominated short film ‘Dreamlands.’ Alongside these the band worked with Metal Liverpool, Arts Council England and Harthill Community centre to create an installation and performance piece with teens from migrant communities. The final performance, TRACKBED, was performed at the Barbican in London.


Marie Davidson

May 2020

Cool and with a touch of classic French chanson, Marie Davidson’s heavy-lidded coldwave, synthpop and EBM has made her one of the year’s most talked-about talents. Trained in classical violin, the French-Canadian artist fell hard for analogue electronic music in high school, dropping out to become a fixture on Montreal’s thriving underground music scene. Davidson’s longest running project, the duo Essaie Pas, channels the noirish glamour and woozy mechanical groove of ’80s-era synthpop.
In 2012, Davidson also began recording under her own name, eschewing laptops and software in favour of a raft of analogue gear—synthesizers, drum machines, portable recorders, pedals. The resulting tracks, which layered French and English spoken word over spartan but muscular grooves, were collected onto a pair of EPs released via indie labels Holodeck and Weyrd Son—Perte D’Identité, in 2014, and Un Autre Voyage, in 2015. Her debut full-length, Adieux Au Dancefloor, arrived the following year. Imprinted with the DNA of techno, electro, dark Italo disco and synthpop, the album was a natural fit for Cititrax. In an interview with The FADER, Davidson revealed that the Adieux Au Dancefloor was born out of a stint in Berlin and “a fascination for dance music and club culture as much as a disgust from it”—an album that spurned the destructive behaviors of club culture while playing into its fetish for analogue sleaze. In 2018, she released her follow-up, Working Class Woman, on Ninja Tune and in 2019, announced her official departure from club music, with audiences waiting to find out what she will do next.

April 2020

Colin Self is an artist, composer and choreographer based in New York and Berlin. He creates music and performance pieces designed to expand consciousness, trouble binaries and play with the boundaries of perception.

From his early years experiencing Riot Grrrl shows around his childhood home of Oregon, to his involvement with Brooklyn’s avant-performance collective Chez Deep, Self’s work reimagines “Do-It-Yourself” as “Do-It-Together.” He recently released the album Siblings, the final installment of his career-spanning, six-part opera, Elation. The series is about queer family and global transfiguration and covers disciplines including sculpture, video, recording and performance. In his practice, Self works across media with many collaborators. He has made music for various choreographers, including a score with Miguel Gutierrez for Jen Rosenblit and Simone Aughterlony’s Everything Fits in the Room. He works closely with Holly Herndon (4AD) and since 2015 has performed as one third of the Holly Herndon trio. He has also served as the vocalist for electronic duo Amnesia Scanner (PAN) and runs XOIR – an international non-utilitarian vocal workshop focused on alternative modalities of group singing.

Lebanese-born producer and DJ Rabih Beaini (formerly known as Morphosis) specializes in grainy, imaginative analogue techno. As Morphosis, Beaini has been crafting away in the nether-regions of the techno underworld since the 90s. Having cut his teeth as a DJ, a move to Italy in 1996 proved the catalyst to start experimenting in the studio.
Beaini’s genuine musical ability and a range of influences—from krautrock to new wave—seep into his inventive, dark, and emotional productions and immersive DJ sets. These influences also find their way into Beani’s productions with the Upperground Orchestra, a multi-headed improvisational ensemble that explores the terrain between electronica, techno, and improvisational jazz. While his productions join the dots between raw, elementary electronica, and jazz, his Morphine label has put forward an equally forward-thinking selection of techno from the likes of Madteo, Hieroglyphic Being, and Anthony “Shake” Shakir. Beaini served as a producer for a retrospective collection of Buchla synth pioneer Charles Cohen and others of composer Pauline Oliveros, French mechanical-orchestra creator Pierre Bastien, and explosive Indonesian duo Senyawa.
