Tara Transitory, Rabih Beaini, and group A each find their own approaches to exploring the transformatory power sound – from Tara’s powerful body-oriented, gender-obliterating performance blasts, Rabih’s hypnotic sound rituals that shed their gaze on (often overlooked) voices in the avant-garde and outernational music scenes, and group A’s DJ selections spanning avant-synth, industrial and south-asian recordings. Close CTM collaborators, they appear together in this first of two CTM 2018 festival prelude events.

Tara Transitory aka One Man Nation embraces performance as an “explicit expression against the prefabrication of culture.” Living and working nomadically between her native Asia and Europe, Tara refuses to commit to identification either with particular nation states or with the firm boundaries of the ‘nations’ that are gender, identity, and musical tradition. Performance in general, and Tara’s generation of noise specifically, are means by which to create a simultaneously body-oriented and, by virtue of an obliteration of gender boundaries, body-transcending aural experience. Her music employs field recordings and sounds from a midi controller and 64-button monomer. In most performances she also places self-built piezo contact microphones on the furniture in the performance space as well as on the instruments themselves, so that the system picks up sounds including fader and knob movements, button-pressing, and physical motion from both Tara and the audience.

Lebanese-born producer and DJ Rabih Beaini first came to prominence for his work under the Morphosis moniker, crafting away in the nether-regions of the techno underworld since the 90s. Founded in 2005, his Morphine label, has continued to put forward an equally forward-thinking selection of techno from the likes of Madteo, Hieroglyphic Being, Sote, and Anthony "Shake" Shakir, plus an expansion into experimental electronics with recent releases from artists such as Pauline Oliveros, Senyawa and Pierre Bastien. Beaini’s own productions reflect a genuine musical ability and a range of influences from krautrock to new wave to middle eastern music. These influences also find their way into Beani’s productions with the Upperground Orchestra, a multi-headed improvisational ensemble that explores the terrain between electronica, techno, and improvisational jazz.

When Japanese duo group A was formed in 2012 by Tommi Tokyo (synthesizer, vocals, percussion) and Sayaka Botanic (violin, synthesizer, cassette tapes), their shows came as a shock to most spectators. While their mixture of synth heavy minimal wave, avant noise, striking visuals and performance art carried the very breath of early industrial pioneers such as Throbbing Gristle or Cabaret Voltaire, the duo has since evolved into a beast of its own. Their self-produced 1st album, A, was released in 2012 and was featured in magazines such as NYLON Japan and Vice. Since then the duo has release two more acclaimed albums, shared bills with artists such as Acid Mother Temple, Merzbow, and Nisennenmondai, and immersed themselves into Berlin’s music community.
