Layne Garrett creates free folk, free improv from homemade instruments/sculptures.

Insect Factory is as quiet as sleep itself. Drones so soft and delicate, that they hardly exist, instead are merely imagined. Or they can rattle your balls.

Making music on the fringe since the underground movement ignited in Russia in the beginning 80s, Alexei Borisov has developed an impressively diverse body of work as a member of NIGHT PROSPEKT, F.R.U.I.T.S. and VOLGA, among many other projects.

Born in Moscow on December 7, 1960, Alexei Borisov graduated the Moscow State University where he had studied History and Arts. His controversial performing career (as a guitarist) began in the CENTER new-wave group, in 1980. Next year, he formed the PROSPEKT mod-band. And re-loaded it in 1985 as the shifting NIGHT PROSPEKT with then-partner Ivan Sokolovsky. After the actual dissolution of the band in the beginning 90s, he surfaced then in the “noise reconstruction and techno acoustics” duo F.R.U.I.T.S. with Pavel Zhagun (also known as PIEZO) and in various short-lived art/noise/industrial acts like JOINT COMMITTEE, ATOMIC BISQUIT ORCHESTRA and SEVER.

Michael Thieke and Kai Fagaschinski (Berlin) THE INTERNATIONAL NOTHING is the collective name, both composer / clarinetists are working exclusively on compositions (no improv), where both instruments melt into one sound, which sometimes sounds like more than two instruments through the extensive use of multiphonics and difference tones; their pieces have a delicate and slowed down quality and celebrate a unique and timeless beauty; they will present a collection of pieces developed between 2003 and 2009

With support by Goethe-Institut San Fransisco and Kulturverwaltung des Landes Berlin

DC’s Nine Strings (Gary Rouzer on Ned Steinberger bass-cello and electronics, and Daniel Barbiero on double bass), and Scott Allison on electronics etc.
