THE HUM is an exploratory club night traveling into different temporalities, phenomena and politics of sound, dance, and club culture. A work in progress.
After a heartening journey to the conditional realm of 1980s-based four to the floor modifications, interpretations and synthetic beyonds with June and Phuong Dan and the bleeby, breaky Nr. 73 with KilleKill’s Fist Van Odor, The Hum is now proceeding to a rather linear and metallic quality of exploratory music and dance.
Passionate by the machines and their warm and intense sound, Willis Anne quickly gave birth to LAN (Live Act Night). Not just a purveyor of dusty club music, LAN is a conceptual project also operating within the realms of event and video.
Enlisting the services of friends and peers to work on the various facets, we’ve seen the likes of Cloudface, Steve Summers, Perseus Traxx and Steven Tang join founder Willis Anne in both the booth and the studio since LAN’s inception.
Harmonious Thelonious, the electronic project by Stefan Schwander (aka Antonelli), combines the reduced serial structures of American minimalist music with African rhythms and European sequencing. Without any ideological agenda, the Düsseldorf-based musician blends gripping harmonic and rhythmic patterns to create an entirely new kind of club music.
He conjures up hypnotic voodoo atmospheres – danceable, challenging, and melodically playful – crossing Throbbing Gristle with the djembé. The 2010 album “Talking” conquered new rhythmic worlds with Afro-Industrial music fueled by dizzying sequencer patterns, garnering much praise for its global mixture of sound.
THE HUM is continuously calling for versatile contributions in the fields of performance, sound and dance and related knowledge. Be it a lecture, a performance, a dj set, a workshop, a digital or physical artefact: firstname.lastname@example.org
Host djs Ultraviolett and Vinilette will play records after the live shows.
