In his site-specific performance installation, JONÁŠ GRUSKA will transform one of the metal walls of PLATOON KUNSTHALLE's container into a speaker.
Electronic duo TRIPLE SUN will play live on two modular systems, improvising on layers of melody and sound, walking a line between ambient, techno, and early IDM.
NINA PIXEL of Hertz | Kunst-Plattform will merge her own field recordings of items, places, and other magic with her favourite production by beloved musicians, in a hybrid live/DJ set.

Triple Sun is an electronic duo based on an empirical approach to music, sound design and visual imagination. Their multi-genre explorations are unified by a cinematic mood full of drive, psychedelia and freedom. The sound of Triple Sun is characterized by organic modular sound-design and minimalist arrangements.
Nina Pixel is a part of the audio-visual group Hertz | Kunst-Plattform and female:pressure. Her music extends beyond the border of uncompromising ritual rhythms, in endless sonic soundscapes and dirty dark techno. She purposefully deconstructs once created, in an effort to re-create deep stories flowing into the space. Something's gonna happen, follow the void, dive in. Melt.
