As a multimedia artist, Olivia Pils aka Fake Mistress seeks non-verbal, intuitive forms of expression in her installations, which include music, light and everyday objects.
As a singer and music producer, the Berlin artist layers her at times fragile, sometimes voluminous vocal lines and combines them with noisy orchestral samples and harsh noise. Her live sets are dynamic processes, where expressive passages are met with heavy industrial beats.
The Berlin Hula band Hula Hut and The Seven Seas sounds more Hawaiian than any Hawaiian Hula-export and is also much better dressed. Far from dazzlingly colorful folklore, Sebastian Müller, Patrick Arp, Taylor Savvy, Derek Shirley and Yuko Matsuyama have perfected a serious renaissance of Hula from the 20s and 30s.
The quintet revives the great musical tradition of Hawaii, which of course includes steel guitar, ukulele and singing in the traditional Ha’i style. Aloha!
Hatsune Kaidan: The liaison of Japan’s longest-serving noise band with the flesh incarnation of the virtual pop star Miku Hatsune is a sensation, and not only in Japan.
Hijokaidan, founded in 1979 by Jojo Hiroshige and Naoki Zushi in Kyoto, is considered the mother of all noise bands. Their uncompromising Harsh Noise absolutely defines the style and has been a key influence on numerous generations of artists.
The figure Hatsune Miku, in turn, was developed by illustrator Kei as a commission by Crypton Future Media as part of a marketing campaign for the software synthesizer Vocaloid2. The Manga character was presented to the public as the face of a superhuman voice for the first time in 2007.
In 2008 Miku Hatsune became the first synthetic pop icon and received the Seiun award in the open category. Hatsune Kaidan combine the best the aesthetics of crude, handmade noise and synthetic Bonbon Pop.
