Jim Avignon wanders through life on adventurous paths.
[audio:xxx-xxx.mp3]A painter in techno clubs, a party animal in Berlin, a festival organiser in Moscow and, again and again, on the road with his one-man-band Neoangin – no doubt, the global player of the under ground prefers life to be diverse.
Jim Avignon has long been a trademark , myth and legend as a painter of cartoonish big city panoramas, while as Neoangin he delivers playful songs with multi-layered structures that derive from any genre.
Both his gaudy pictures and his one-and-a half-minute long pop gems, contribute to his particular appeal but above all it is his unique talent to make serious issues consumable as catchy art. A laptop, a microphone and a whimsical melody – the one-man-big-band doesn’t need more to produce the magic balance between melancholy and high spirits.

Günter Reznicek is Nova Huta. A unique character: he, his Casio keyboard and what he defines as “datschadelic music”. All in one. A showman and at the same time a sonorous investigator.
Creator of unstoppable, magnificent and subversive songs that could be defined as gum-robot-pop-disco-electro-dada and at the same time a musician with a long history in noisy experimentation and in the most radical electroacoustic.
Deriving from a secret government project Krach der Roboter was develloped in the early years of the third millenium.
After experiments with self-similarity based code structures, Krach refused to provide it s artificial intelligence to maintain authoritarian society structures and devoted himself relentlessly to music, cooking and feeding ducks.
