Kono is dark sounds and melodic sequences, minimal/techno loops, at low bpm.
DipSwitch is just back from a short tour in Liban, where he played at Yukunkun, one of Beirut’s most famous independent clubs. N.A.Y. is an unconventional performer, with a disregarding style, which confounds the purists, he plays sets which are expressions of his inner thoughts. He recently released a remix for Jerusalem in My Heart, a Montreal-based artist, and an extended track in collaboration with Spanish collective Pinapardo.

The Eclectic Collective will perform the same night at the After Festival Opening Party at DOK dall’Ava.

 

chiara_fumai

On Saturday 31 August from 7pm to 8 pm, on the occasion of the Festival Closing, Circuito Off presents in the foyer of the Teatrino di Palazzo Grassi a Vj and Dj – set by Miltos Manetas and the Italian artist Chiara Fumai performing together for the first time. The audio-video performance will continue from 1pm during the After Festival at the dancefloor of the Closing of Circuito Off, held at Dok Dall’Ava.

In order to dominate the attention of the audience during her performance-lectures, not only Chiara Fumai (dOCUMENTA13) uses the voice modulation of the nineteenth century mediums, but also a shifting technique between emotional spaces which she learnt during her ten years as a Dj, when she scratched the dance floors of the most legendary clubs, raves, festivals and squats of the international underground scene. She is an elektro-techno fundamentalist, as her musical style is inspired from Drexciya and Lory D, and mixes old school, ghetto, terror and acid sonorities, all rigorously executed on vinyl discs. A member of the organization Female Pressure by Electric Indigo, she was the first Italian underground Dj, in 2006, to jockey her discs in China, and her music has been transmitted in Austria by radio O.R.F. and in England via Wax on the Wire. In 2013, she played on invitation of the Redbull Music Academy at the Cocorico’ club in Riccione in occasion of the 12hours party with Marco Carola and Alex Neri. In the past, she shared the line-up with Prodigy, M.I.A., Bologna Violenta, Maria and the Mirrors… RESPECT.

 

Every day Happy Hour at Teatrino from 7 to 8pm and After Festival at DOK dall’Ava near Campo San Luca from Midnight to 3pm.

The special section Fil Rouge, curated by Mara Sartore, presents five women directors, very different from each other, representing five unusual creative universes.

Lola Montes Schnabel, talented artist, presents in world premier a ten-minute film in the culmination of a momentous artistic collaboration between the Italian maestro of playful identity experimentation Luigi Ontani. Ontani and Schnabel have created an elegiac and evocative film with score by Charlemagne Palestine about a wandering soul searching for the meaning of existence. The film was inspired by a Giacomo Leopardi text and evokes the evanescence of existence and the permanence of the artistic struggle.

The American performer and artist Tara Subkoff shows, in world premiere, “Future Perfect”, his video-multimedia experimentation that sees Milla Jovovich starred in a performance, which is isolated for eight hours, constantly observed, photographed and in contact with the outside world only through technology.

Tejal Shah, born in India, lives and works in Bombay; through her visionary and imaginative “Between the waves” (presented at Documenta 13), she shows a surreal world populated by unicorn women who collect plastic in woods and communicate in a lunar landscape using a mirror.

Athina Rachel Tsangari, a Greek director, narrates a dreamlike world of seven girls pent-up in a castle perched on a rock in the Cyclades in “The Capsule”. Strictness, desire and death are the ingredients of this movie representing the essential dialogue of cinema with fashion and art.

Dara Friedman, born in Germany and living and working in Miami, develops and reproduces scenes from the intimate life of some couples in her video “Play” (presented at Unlimited Art Basel). The poetic situations and the intense and fun rhythm of the scenes spring from a work based upon theatre improvisation.

The artist Miltos Manetas and curatorial duo Francesco Urbano Ragazzi present the story of the third Internet Pavilion: a collaboration between the ancient Oratory of San Ludovico, the website of Nero Magazine and other physical and mental spaces at the 55th Art Biennale in Venice. Circuito Off and the Teatrino di Palazzo Grassi will be the stage where the final act of this third episode will take place: a final tribute to the Unconnected, those who still live a life 100% offline, and for this reason are considered the new saints of the Internet. The Pavilion is dedicated to all these people and in their honor Manetas’ tale is staged with its chorus of critics, artists and thinkers.

Miltos Manetas is a Greekborn artist and theorist whose work explores the representation and the aesthetics of the information society. He is the founder of the art movement NEEN, of the Internet Pavilion for the Venice Biennale and of the ElectronicOrphanage.

The selection committee of Circuito Off announces the finalists of the fourteenth international competition: eclectic, disjointed, rebel, dreamlike videos deconstructing the traditional concept of story, opening up to innovation, mixing all kinds of dogmas and leaving room to imagination without taboos.

From Phillip Barker’s “Malody“, Jonathan Entwistle “Human Beings“, the ironic “Young Dreams” by Kristoffer Borgli and “100 Pasos” by Matteo de Mayda and Silvia Costa, up to “Chrome Canyon Generations” by Ace Norton and “Autoerotic” by Can Evgin, all the videos perfectly summarize the fusion of videoclips, music and stories.

Purified cinema is in the air with “Nothing” by Tracey Snelling and ”Faraways” by Audrey Lam, compared with the shameless experimental codes of “Spettografia di una battaglia” by Fabio Scacchioli, up to Irene Carlevale’s grotesque masterpiece “Ansia&Greve“. Moreover “A Very Large Increase in the Size, Amount, or Importance of Something Over a Very Short Period of Time” by Max Hattler, “Briganti senza leggenda” by Gianluigi Toccafondo, “Metube: August Sings Carmen ‘Habanera‘” by Daniel Moshel. There are also award-winning films such as “The Mass of Man” by Gabriel Gauchet, ”Ina Litovski” by Anaïs Barbeau-Lavalette and Andrè Turpin. The language of all these works brings us closer to the world of movies.

Works contaminated by fiction and documentaries such as “Persiennes” by Céline Masson, between experimentation and graphics, confirm the rut of research, on the borders of different genres.

Videoclips are given great importance, from the violent “Spreca una vita” by Graziano Staino, “Ocean Blue” with a romantic Rae Spoon by Chelsea McMullan, or the famous Phon.o featuring Tunde Olaniran in “Leave a Light On” by Lewis Lloyd.

Many animations will be present as well: “Memento Mori” by Daniela Wayllace, “Topo Glassato al Cioccolato” by Milkyeyes Donato Sansone, “Raw Data” by Jake Fried, “I’m Fine Thanks” by Eamonn O’Neill, “Vor dem Spiegel” by Lydia Günther, “Beluga” by Shin Hashimoto, “De Wake” by Pieter Coudyzer, “Little Falling Words” by Igor Imhoff, “Mail” by Emanuele Kabu and “Untitled Rainbow” by Tommaso Sartori.
