SOME BECAME HOLLOW TUBES (CAN)

"LINGUA NADA (GER) is a band, that..." And then what? It’s not that easy to describe the hyperactivity and genre-bending sound of the Leipzig based three-piece. The experimental pop trio's live performances are like a wrecking ball, painted in neon camouflage: catchy, painfull, sweet, bitter – and loud! Nothing really fits and that is what fits perfectly. When it comes to compositions, Lingua Nada are navigating through a Bermuda Triangle of oriental pop melodies, noisy garage riffs and impudently catchy melodies.
LUKAS MORITZ WEGSCHEIDER (AT)
Lukas Moritz Wegscheider is an electronic music composer, instrument builder and photographer from Innsbruck, Austria. He is currently studying at the University of Performing Arts in Graz, Austria. Before his study, he served his apprenticeship in musical instrument building. As an artist, be it audio or visual, he is interested in nostalgia and melancholy from an impersonal point of view by leaving an aesthetically “blurred” impression. With his tape loop performances he wants to focus on room-atmosphere, collective mood, nostalgia, melancholy and the hauntological phenomenon. The endless repetitions, sharpen the acoustic perception and allow the discovery of new sound events. The image gets distorted and blurred until the focus is placed on the distortion and the blurredness itself. Influences of Minimal Music and Ambient, combined with the atmosphere of the hauntology theory and lo-fi aesthetics.
