time design & structural distortion

Arma Agharta (LT) – lofi electronics
Florian Walter (D) – controlled and amplified air

Zwei Performer treffen aufeinander. Beide getrieben von Forscherdrang und Spielwut, beide die meiste Zeit des Jahres auf Tour und der Suche nach künstlerischem Sinn, der sich nicht unmittelbar in gängige Kategorien einordnen lässt. Widersprüche werden aktiv gesucht und stilistische Randbereiche ausgereizt. Gemeinsam entwickeln sie ein Programm, das ebenso laut wie lustvoll, hemmungslos wie brüchig ist und sich schlecht zum Mitsingen eignet. Eigenartige Romantik, abstrakte Folklore und grenzwertige Tanzbarkeit für ein postfaktisches Zeitalter.

Two performers clashing. Both driven by the thrill for acoustic research and the urgent need to play live, both are touring the world for most of the year. They are looking for artistic sense in the fields of interdisciplinary work without sticking to conventional categories. Misunderstandings and uncertainties are considered important elements rather than flaws. Together they they develop a loud, funny wabi-sabi programme on the edge of stylistic borders. It will be hard to sing along. Abstract folklore for a postfactual century.

Arma Agharta is the sound performance artist and curator from Lithuania devoted to improvised and experimental music. With more than 450 performances in his baggage, he is one of the most active performers from Europe.
In 2018, celebrating 20 years of involvement in the worldwide DIY music scene, he is going on
the big world tour, starting from Europe and heading towards North America and Southeast Asia.
His intense and high energy shows span a broad territory between the eruptions of chaotic noise and hypnotic psychedelic ritual to dadaist humour, odd bodily movements, spontaneous improvised games and the voice, detached from meaning and turning into unintelligible glossolalia.
In past few years he participated in these festivals and special events:
Sonic Protest (France), All Ears (Norway), Arctic Sounds (Greenland), Volta (Mexico), A Love Supreme (Spain), Destroy Vancouver (Canada), Gogbot (Netherlands), Sonic (Denmark), Jauna Muzika (Lithuania),  Construction (Ukraine), Le mini Who (Netherlands), Mlode Wilki (Poland), Camp (Germany), Aposition (Russia), Hamselyt (Ukraine), Other Worlds (UK), MEM (Spain), Noise & Fury (Russia), Sonic Circuits (USA), FIME (Mexico), Experi-Mental (USA), SOTU (Netherlands), Sound Around (Russia), Garso Architektūra (Lithuania).
