WIDT

An audiovisual collaboration of two sisters — Antonina Nowacka (voice/processing) and Bogumiła Piotrowska (live visuals). Works of duo appear as oneiric visions built up with a use of abstract, operatic vocalization, flowing in the jungle of psychedelic visuals, created in a real time from scratch with complex forms of video feedback. An unique transgressive phenomenon oscillating between concert, performance, installation and video art. WIDT had released two audiovisual albums: POINT#3 VHS (2015, Pointless Geometry) and WIDT cd/dvd (2016, Zoharum), both appreciated by the renowned british magazine The Quietus. The duo had performed — among others — on the avant-garde festival KRAAK in Brussels, in the legendary Cafe OTO in London, in the unique silent green Kulturquartier in Berlin, on the prestigious festival Przemiany in the Copernicus Science Center in Warsaw. In September 2016 they accomplished their first UK tour.

WIDT's performance in Cafe OTO is a part of the European tour supported by the Adam Mickiewicz Institute in Poland.

ASTOR

Astor is the moniker of Mark Harwood, Australian publisher, event curator and sound artist who is now residing in London, United Kingdom. Under this guise he deploys a wide variety of techniques including field recording, musique concrete, electronics and spatialisation. All of these forms are approached with a sense of bypassing the cliches imbedded within in order to coerce a sound world which is simultaneously contemporary, foreign, beautiful, unsettling and engaging. Mark has released 2 acclaimed lp's on Kye (USA) and has a third 'Lina in Nida' on Penultimate Press (UK).
