Kamizdat is proud to present a truly special evening sound story created live on the spot by two media artists, who–each in themselves and one for the other–invite us to immerse into the landscapes interwoven with signals of a reality that indelibly enters the listener via their unique imagery and contemporary sound art practice. Kamizdat is releasing their albums Transversal Is a Loop and noise for strings, vol.1 in September (on September 16 and 30 respectively), but they will be available at the concert as a USB booklet in a renewed Kamizdat design. You have our word that if you come you are in for an exceptional sound music experience!
