This year’s line-up includes the internationally recognised electronic producer, musician and DJ FVLCRVM (Slovakia) followed by the Zabelov Group (Czech Republic), known for their unique blend of electronics and jazz embellishments, an exciting new collaboration Žagar AV Experience (Hungary) and Brighton-based DJ Nano PUNK (Poland) accompanied by visuals from Neonm3.
On the tipping edge between mainstream and underground, FVLCRVM is a celebration of unpredictability where ADHD distorted production of niche club genres meets mellow pop musicality with a reinvented 90s vibe. Borrowing his name from a Russian jet fighter, the artist found a form in inconsistency; picked by Spotify as no 1 for their renowned Fresh Finds‘ Playlist, the first track featuring FVLCRVM’s vocal ‘Hi!’ was also featured by BBC Radio 6 Music, gaining the Bratislava based artist immediate attention by tastemakers like Mary Anne Hobbs and Machinedrum. For Electronica: Vision of Sound III, FVLCRVM will premiere his new collaboration with light designer Josef Čabo drawing on dystopian motifs and elements of abstract futuristic user interface.
Badfocus + VJ Linda Arbanová (Czech Republic)badfocus is an emerging project of Prague-based producer, composer and multi-instrumentalist Prokop Korb, whose music is an abundant sonic fantasy powered by the desire to expand his own musical language and create new soundscapes, beats and melodies. He’s also an active member of dream-pop band teepee, with whom he performed at European showcase festival Eurosonic Noorderslag and supported the British duo Seafret on their European tour. In 2020 he released his debut album Wallflower. For this event badfocus presents his darker side with an exclusive techno set, combining lush atmospheric sounds with rhythmical patterns that will light up the dance floor. Accompanied by a light design by leading VJ Linda Arbanová.
Žagar AV Experience (Hungary)
Žagar AV Experience is a collaboration between the musician Balázs Zságer and visual artist Kati Katona. Zságer is the keyboardist-producer of the Hungarian frontrunner electronic act Žagar and has been involved in many independent projects on the Budapest electronic music scene. In this collaboration, he reveals his experimental and atmospheric side. Kati Katona works with Global Illumination, Limelight Projection and designs visuals for Ozora Festival, Sziget Festival and Zsolnay Light Festival. She is obsessed with experimenting with techniques and exploring new processes. One of her expertise is the modification of real time captured footage.
This joint project is a collaboration between Nanopunk & NeonM3 crafted specifically for Electronica: Vision of Sound III event. Nanopunk is a one-man electronic orchestra using samplers, loopers and live production techniques to play mesmerising alt/dance electronic live sets. He produces lush, beautifully driven foot-tapping grooves, wrapped up in a cosmic atmosphere. On the other hand, Neonm3’s visual explorations are not limited to a particular style. For the upcoming show, the base of content will be 3D scans from extensive travel logs: various real-world places dated back to the megalithic period were captured using portable 3d-scanning techniques. These objects are fed to a custom made audio-reactive visual system, generating swarms of particles within multi-dimensional space.
