Kit Young (USA) Krzysztof Pawlik (PL)

Kit Young builds video systems that can be played in an improvisational way. He performs collaboratively with other media artists. Though his work utilizes new media technique, his practice is grounded in the experimental cinema traditions of perception, awareness, social justice, and humor. He uses art as a means of restructuring reality to facilitate change. Kit has exhibited and performed locally, nationally, and internationally, most recently at FU:BAR, (Croatia), Elastic Arts, (Chicago), and the 60th Ann Arbor Film Festival.


The project was created in 2013 with live performances in mind, as a complement to the solo activities of two artists – Magda Ter and Tom Mirt. It is a natural outgrowth of what can be found on their albums. The common denominators are the media used – modular systems, improvisation and avoiding of virtual environments for creating music. However, this is only an enduring characteristic, not a categorical artistic statement. What’s important is the amalgam of inspirations that straddle the most primal strains of music, Latin and African rhythms, gamelan and gong culture from Vietnam, ambient and environmental music drawing on fourth-world music experiences, field recording, and the non-obvious regions of dance music – that which is trance-like and repetitive.

Inire (PL)

INIRE, as a duo consisting of Krzysztof Pawlik and Malgorzata Dancewicz, realizes audiovisual performances and installations. In their actions, built on voltage-controlled sound and image, often in the form of improvisation, images and sounds are subjected to mutual influences, modifications and deformations, in which the author’s intention plays an equal role with the agency of modular systems. Three Movements, a new project, that will be presented at Intermediale is an audiovisual performance consisting of three parts which refer to various ways of retrieving and processing impressions as a content from personal memory. From a certain point of view, the entire world of aesthetic impressions is made up of different wavelengths. When an evoked memory from theta waves structuralizing itself in the forms of a sound and visual waves, can we conclude that it’s the memory that materializes? The starting point here is James Joyce quotation „Hold to the now, the here, through which all future plunges to the past.” and processing documentary materials from different spaces and situations.

Thomas Ankersmit (DE_NE)

Thomas Ankersmit is a musician and sound artist based in Berlin and Amsterdam. He plays the Serge Modular synthesizer, both live and in the studio, and collaborates with artists like Phill Niblock and Valerio Tricoli. His music is released on the Shelter Press, PAN, and Touch labels, and combines intricate sonic detail and raw electric power, with a very physical and spatial experience of sound. Acoustic phenomena such as infrasound and otoacoustic emissions (sounds emanating from inside the head, generated by the ears themselves) play an important role in his work, as does a deliberate, creative misuse of the equipment. The project he will present at Intermediale – Perceptual Geography is a solo live commissioned by CTM in Berlin and Sonic Acts in Amsterdam, and premiered there on the GRM Acousmonium. The music is inspired by the pioneering research of – and dedicated to – American composer and installation artist Maryanne Amacher (1938-2009), and performed entirely on the Serge Modular analogue synthesizer.

Kacper Ziemianin a.k.a. Ctrl Freq (PL_Nl)

Kacper Ziemianin has background in classical music and a lot of adventures in modern sound and music, from black metal to broken electronics, ambient, noise, circuit bending. He holds a Bachelor’s degree in Sonic Arts from Middlsex University, London and Master’s degree in Sonology at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague, the Netherlands. He also studied at the Music Academy in Cracow with Professor Marek Chołoniewski, in Berlin (UDK) with Alberto de Campo and at residencies in Amsterdam (STEIM). Ziemian will perform a performance on „LSe” as part of the Intermediale Festival. „LSe” is a unique electronic instrument designed specifically for playing electronic music live. It allows the generation of numerous light sequences, which are then translated into sound. This type of interaction creates many opportunities to generate and control sound in innovative ways. The project received funding from the Crative Industries Fund NL and also won first prize at the Radical Db festival in Spain.

Cliffhanger (IT)

Roberto Zanata (video and electronics) and Silvia Cignoli (electric guitar and electronics). “Cliffhanger” is a multimedia project that takes the mosaic technique as a model. The concert consists of sound and visual tiles generated by electronics and / or electric guitar, sometimes clear and recognizable, sometimes only vaguely hinted. The project, curated by Silvia Cignoli and Roberto Zanata, is created starting from pre-established audio / video notations and from others moment created on the spot. Each component, electroacoustic and visual, responds to the expressive needs of the other in a continuous alternation of images and sounds. Technology is at the service of this synaesthetic relationship and the devices involved become its privileged tools. “Cliffhanger” is a new Spaziomusica production year 2022.

Macromassa_Juan Crek (ES)

A legend of the Catalan avant-garde, Victor Nubla and Juan Crek founded MACROMASSA in 1976 and since then have created an original, personal and influential body of work that encompasses music, theater, performance, design, installation, magic, literature, radio, happening, cinema, video…. They used electronic sound generators, composed symphonic music, also approached rock music, practiced free improvisation, played with acoustic instruments and voices…. MACROMASA is a fusion between contemporary composers from cultured music and modern popular experimentation.  These huge span took them to play in many different stages. In 2020, after the tragic event of Víctor Nubla’s death, Macromassa stopped working as a band, waiting to edit their last studio album “No Soy Tiempo”. In 2021, Juan Crek and Tina Valent relaunched Macromassa, giving new concerts and recording the album „Tin Rol va a volar,” which will be released soon. Juan Crek received a classical music education by learning to play the baritone saxophone, and has devoted much of his work to the study of timbre and ways to electronically transform the sound of the instrument.

Radio Internazionale (PL)

Last year, an exhibition by the creative collective Radio Internazionale was held at the Art Gallery in Legnica as part of Intermediale. The title of the exhibition, SYGNAŁ.SZUM, referred to communication disruptions, chaotic social relations and anomalies in communication between different cultural groups. The performance that Radio Internazionale will present at this year’s Intermediale was created as a result of considering the reception of the exhibition and the relationship between the viewer and the exhibition material, which is not a “live” presentation. In the classical approach to perfomance art and its documentation, we are dealing with the recording of live actions, followed by the presentation of the record in the form of an exhibition. Radio Internazionale in this case reverses this classical direction.
