In Songs from my analogue utopia I explore the self-organizing coordination dynamics of analog oscillators and the Utopian potentials of analogue communication. In analogue communication synchronization results from the mutual interaction of two or more processes, not a single process is dominating the other. It is in the mutuality where I see the Utopian potential of analogue communication. I undertake this exploration on the screen of an overhead projector where I place little motors driven by analogue oscillators. The motors hit on rubber bands which are equipped with piezo-pickups, rendering the rhythmical hitting of the motors into sound and into a shadow play.

Christian Faubel is an interdisciplinary scholar working in the differing fields of neuroscience, autonomous systems research and media art & design. He holds a PhD in electrical engineering and has completed research on autonomous systems at the Institute for Neural Computation from 2002–2012. In 2002 he founded derstrudel, a collective for the mediation of a relaxed approach to electronics robotics. Since 2002 he has taught more than 50 workshops in building simple analog robots at international venues and festivals. In his work, Christian Faubel is interested in what enables complex behavior, and how this may result from the interaction of very simple units and their interrelations. In his artworks, installations, workshops & performances he tries to convey insights about theoretical concepts such as self-organisation, emergence or embodiment along an aesthetic dimension. He considers his artworks, workshops and performances to be in the tradition of philosophical toys as they combine the mediation of scientific concepts with pleasure and amusement.

This newborn monniker allows a Berlin-based devil of a fellow to appear cleared from what he is usually known for. Therefore we will keep the secret, suffice it to say: he is happily exploring the harder, darker domains rather than ruling the sunset floors as we have seen him doing in places as Garbicz festival. Experts of the scene may a find a hint in the URL below.

brick habe ich schon öfter auflegen erlebt als alle anderen Techno DJs. Das kommt daher weil ich Techno eigentlich noch nie besonders spannend fand. Zu kalt, zu monoton, zu sehr seiner reinen Funktionalität zugewandt. brick erfindet Techno nicht neu, aber er präsentiert ihn in einem wohl überlegten und angenehm temperierten Gewand.

Berlin-based artist AEX delivers complex and catching ambient spheres. From warm and melodic explorations via a rather technical approach to darker layers of machine music, occasionally enriched by her voice, this young live act blends a dense weave of soundscapes, beats and repetitive bleeps. She has quite a special connection to the CCC: at the age of 15, her father took her to the congress in Hamburg, where she discovered her passion for technical informatics in which she dived deeply ...

Seinen Freunden ist Marcus Kestner unter vielen Namen bekannt. Einer davon ist „Der Schrauber“, der nicht nur von seinen Skills in Sachen Technik und Handwerk herrührt, sondern auch von seiner Art der Musikproduktion. Seit kurzem veröffentlicht er jedoch unter seinem neuem Pseudonym Kaubl und spielt auch die ein oder andere Platte aus der Sammlung dem geneigten Publikum vor.
