Senyawa

Already purchased tickets will be refunded via Seeticket.

Senyawa is a duo from Java, Indonesia, which has become an international word-of-mouth phenomenon in recent years. They are the spearhead of an Indonesian experimental scene that has only recently been noticed in the western world. Senyawa blend traditional Javanese music with punk attitude and avantgarde aesthetics. Their sound is defined by two hallmarks: the vocal acrobatics of Rully Shabara and the self-made instruments of Wukir Suryadi. The latter are mostly made of bamboo and converted agricultural tools that are electrically amplified; the strings plucked by Suryadi function partly as a minimalist pulse for Shabar’s singing. A joint album with Stephen O’Malley from Sunn O))) was released in the summer.

Probably very few people in Switzerland knew the name Christopher Chaplin before a multi-page interview entitled «Der Schüchterne» appeared in «Das Magazin» in April 2019. He talks about his famous father, one of the most important comedians and directors of all time, and about the fact that he prefers to discuss his musical work rather than his family. Since 2010, Chaplin has been releasing music, mostly complex electronic pieces, which at times can even cross over into rhythm, but most of the time are at the intersection between electronica and contemporary compositions. He regularly plays in cooperation with his musical mentor Hans-Joachim Roedelius (Cluster). Chaplin spent his childhood in Vevey but has now been living in England for over 40 years.

Dis Fig

Felician Chen, alias Dis Fig, is a Chinese-American who lives in Berlin. Her music is wild and unpredictable as is her stage presence. And her live performances have an element of ritual about them, a sort of musical delirium. Harsh electronic sounds meet distorted vocals and vague hints of trip hop, punk and techno. «This ain’t just your run-of-the-mill wall of power electronics and angry screams. Dis Fig’s range is surprisingly undogmatic» (The Quietus)
