WHITE NERVE CONNECTION (PL)
White Nerve Connection was launched in 1996 in Warsaw as an industrial project. Initially solo, WNC has since 2013 performed as a duo with material presenting a cut-up melange in the ambient and noise climate. Their music is based on field recording, mixed with the sounds of various generators, samples and noise-generating devices. White Nerve Connection is a dadaistic city call, combined with a tradition of electroacoustic and multicultural classics immersed in the echoes of club music.
EMMA ZUNZ (PL)
Some, noting the strong rhythmic nature of Emma Zunz’s pieces, define the project as techno, but if so, it’s the kind of techno that’s definitely more for listening than dancing. It’s electronic with an emphasis on beats and an industrial feeling. It’s less abstraction and experimentation, and definitely more narrative and anchored in the past. It’s simple melodies and dense, multidimensional backgrounds. Vintage, pastiche and hauntology, where in the conceptual layer one can find a lot of non-musical references – literary, film and artistic.
