mo.ë, Thelemanngasse 4, 1160 Vienna
Main act ISLAJA developed a new set based on tracks of her up-coming album which will
be released in 2014 on Gudrun Gut`s record label Monica Enterprise.
The new tracks by the Finnish solo-artist are forward going electro-pop songs; complex and
multi-layered beats combined with surreal lyrics. Her non-conformative appearance, minimal style and low pitched voice touches aspects of transcending gender roles, highly
discussed in confirmative pop music and its female roll-models.
Christina Nemec, aka chra, is co-founder and co-owner of the label comfortzone
based in Vienna.
chra is the alter ego of Christina Nemec. After a long period of experiments in low
frequencies and noise-effects, chra started to work on club beats. Her experiments with
synthesized and analogue tunes, created through sound effect tools based on shareware,
processing through analogue and digital devices such as tape recorders, a 4-track-
machine, sampler, and bass guitar result in soundscapes depicting poetry and literature as
well as mundane chores in every day life. The main inspirations though are the energies
between the sonic concepts of noise and silence that challenge Christina Nemec in her
CAROLA FUCHS (AT)
The dancer CAROLA FUCHS performed a piece named „Körperbilder“, a sequence of
images of female bodies depicted throughout art history in combination with a text by the
philosopher and cultural theorist Judith Butler on performativity, gender and the body. As the visual sequence accelerates with each repetition within the dance performance, the spoken words are slowed down until both tracks detach from their comprehensible pace.
ROSI REHFORMEN (AT)
Viennese musician ROSI REHFORMEN performed an intriguing piece for cello and voice.
She develops pure sculptural sounds and an almost architectural sonic atmosphere through improvisation within classical instrumentation.
