The Art Of Breakcore part 2 will be on january 18th, 2014 in the Hall of Fame, Tilburg.This edition there will be debates about positive changes people can make together to create a better world.

There will be a panel of speakers that will tell why they do what they do and how they think what will be a possible future of life as we know it. Is the book 1984 by George Orwell the definitive future? Will there be one gigacompany that will rule our food supply forever? Or is there a way to a different future?

The music & visual program will give a reflection on the themes of the debate and the deeper view that art can give (as concluded during the the panel discussion of The Art Of Breakcore 1).

line up:

NOIZE CREATOR (DE)
Suburban Trash Industries

Noize Creator is one of the most inspiring breakcore producers by releasing a diversity of music with his own productions and running multiple labels with a cutting edge sound within the electronic underground. His first steps into music production were back in 1991 while he was mixing music with the use of tapedecks. Soon after, he got interested in techno, and started djing at illegal parties. In 1994 he started to make music within the hardcore underground circuit, with releases on Juncalor Records, Rage Records, Blood ‘n’ Guts, Killing Rate, Surgeon16 and his own hardcore label Brutal Chud. One of the most memorable highlights was under the alias Kingz of Noize, of which the record was released on the Drop Bass Network sublabel Six Sixty Six. In 1998 he started his new label Suburban Trash Industries, which held a great diversity of important electronic music releases.

HYPNOSKULL (BE)
Ant-Zen

Hypnoskull emerged as a project of Patrick Stevens in 1992, who combines the power of pure analog electronics with harsh rhythm structures to form an anarchic assault of noise and techno-industrial. After years of underground activism in the worldwide electronic underground network of industrial music, Hypnoskull reached a larger audience by putting out the album ‘Rythmusmaschine 1-2’ (1998), followed by ‘Ffwd>Burnout!'(1999) and ‘Electronic Music Means War To Us’ (2001). Before that, Stevens also made a name as one half of the duo Sonar, a hardcore Belgian rhythmical industrial project.

contagious orgasm & dirk geiger. fallen empires. cd. ant-zen act285
since 1987, japan’s contagious orgasm has been active in many intersecting and diverse areas of experimental electronic music, including noise, industrial, rhythmic noise, and ambient. an important and prominent aspect of this project’s work are the numerous collaborations with artists from all over the world like bad sector, atrax morgue, kotodama and brume. for this recent release, c.o. is working together with the german based electronic musician dirk geiger. dirk was born in 1975, and has been involved with music since his youth. in 2002, he formed the music label raumklang music, releasing works from artists like hotaru bay, klangstabil, tapage, pandoras black book and his own debut album ‘dondukov 15’. for the past few years he has been working on a self titled solo project in which he mainly produces music that could fall into the genres of idm, glitch, and ambient. on ‘fallen empires’, the two collaborators generate a cinematic masterpiece of ritualistic ambience. captivating atmospheric synth pads, well-placed field recordings and samples, melodic sequences and dub-like use of echo effects carried on a diverse collection of beats, adding up to make impressive soundscapes of beauty and menace. this album is finished with a dark electro industrial remix by philipp münch, strongly reminiscent of cabaret voltaire and a melancholic orchestrated version of the track ‘resistance’ by p·a·l. ‘fallen empires’ describes the downfall of man-made empires. the end of the beginning. the hopelessness of contemporary civilization. their fear and their anger. captivity in a society whose values are no longer your own. the fight against it, to preserve freedom. and the focus on what nobody can ever take away…. your inner freedom.

hypnoskull. electronic music means war to us 2. cd. ant-zen act294
more than a decade after ‘electronic music means war to us’ patrick stevens showcases his updated aural statement, ready to burglarize listeners’ minds and bodies with a heavy load of uncompromising sound barrages. this album has its focus on classic rhythmic industrial: repetitive hard-hitting power rhythms layered with violent noisy clashes, corroded synth textures and incidental voice samples. six collaborations with artists from all over the world like needle sharing, dissecting table and cyboresis add to the stylistic variety from heavy overdrive hardcore, grind/death metal vocals, power noise and ambient to the beat driven hypnoskull tracks. an aggressive, confrontational album with a high amount of club playability that perfectly brings out the essence of rhythm based electronics.

“no matter what instruments he uses, at some point he reaches the edge of certainty beyond which conscious knowledge cannot pass.” – carl g. jung

“after countless ventures with other projects and almost five years without releasing any albums, iszoloscope is back in full force. the return is without compromise and in all of its haunting brutality. these releases are the result of a long experiment with multiple realities, turned inwards, stretched thin and fractalized until glimpses of infinity seeped through the walls of consciousness into a formless show. a show that somehow is reminiscent of a strange balancing act between everlasting bliss and absolute terror crawling outside of time.

well, something like that… i think. that is until i realize, yet again, how absurd it all is when i try to paint it outside a metaphor. no matter how golden the answers are on the other side of my psyche, they never truly matter outside my mind. all the gold that i find in this enchanted forest of subjectivity always turns into ashes the instant it touches the light of the outside world – all while i try to convey my findings into coherent, rational thoughts. i’m still not sure how far down the rabbit hole i am.

i have knowingly gone beyond to explore anything that resembles an answer that is beyond the human experience. i only have greater questions that no language can formulate – questions that are slowly slipping back into oblivion. it seems we are all both geniuses and idiots at once. some less then others, maybe – the absurdity of this particular truth has always amused part of me while iszolating another. meanwhile, these releases are the result of countless passionate hours in the studio. of trial and error. of sharing technical information and creative dialogue with friends and artists…” – yann faussurier / iszoloscope

iszoloscope’s new full length album, recorded between 2007 and 2010, is proof that waiting is worthwhile. nine powerful tracks ranging between icy crystal clear technoid industrial to merciless rhythmic distortion, from breakbeats to breakcore, from dark ambient to complex electronica – go find out what lies beyond the edge of certainty!

“the only ‘realities’ (plural) that we actually experience and can talk meaningfully about are perceived realities, experienced realities, existential realities – realities involving ourselves as editors – and they are all relative to the observer, fluctuating, evolving, capable of being magnified and enriched, moving from low resolution to hi-fi, and do not fit together like the pieces of a jig-saw into one single reality with a capital r. rather, they cast illumination upon one another by contrast […]” – robert anton wilson

act 247 · mono-amine · do not bend · cd

tracklist:
01. beyond the status quo
02. if you are not running you will not make it (deeptrippingmix)
03. democracy is a dying giant
04. human imitation
05. slowburner
06. synaesthesia

09. combustion
10. encountering no resistance

mono-amines, as they appear in neurochemistry, are crucial in bringing the brain to a state of adrenaline and euphoric rush. musically, mono-amine is joost gransjean’s intense and adventurous music project and live-act which is based in the hague (nl). joost started performing live in 1997 and since 2004 has released 12 inch singles/eps and albums on various labels. as mono-amine he has created his own style of music; dark, distorted, layered, straight in your face and with a sick fresh groove. all inspired by his critical view of society..

joost’s keeps things suspenseful though his disparate musical experience. experience that includes (but not limited to) acid techno, hardcore and industrial. this is coupled with his prolific club experience that brings out an even more varied sound. the end result is relentless rhythm and escalating walls of sound. complex and fast paced drum work lead into barrages of rhythmic noise – heavily textured synth waves and vicious samples intertwine into the layers of a constantly evolving, shifting percussive aural world.

this is a skillfully made album that is very suitable for fans of raw technoid industrial or even drum ‘n noise focussed sound. do not bend – do not miss!

act 218 · lingouf · area keloza · cd

tracklist:
1. bioless game
2. harpman
3. filupoy
4. xozpoqorpe
5. doyo
6. area keloza

track 1 with kenji siratori

this normandy project defines its very own universe including distinctive burton-esque graphic works and audio releases in vinyl and cd format. provided with the typical romanic humour and french eccentricity, lingouf alienates those who are into ‘exact’ terminations and information while contemporaneously intriguing broad-minded audio and visual art gourmets.

lingouf’s first releases on the french ark-aik label might fit in the hardcore / gabber genre, area keloza can be seen as a manifold mixage between powerful pulsatile industrial, advanced deep tenebrous electronics and circus-like melodies with high recognition value. imagine a comparison with imminent, converter, somatic responses… add a slight intangible obscurity… then you’ll get a picture of what lingouf might be – or of what he might not.

take a listen, watch lingouf’s visuals on his site, submerge into an unknown perspective of industrial arts – be caught and captivated at the same time at the area keloza! a true journey of insanity, with a brightly-coloured grim sense of humor.
