teepee

Music by teepee is a unique combination of dreampop and indie folk. The teepee sound is defined by acoustic guitar played by Mason and fragile notes of electric guitar, rendered by singing Tééra. You can also find traces of samples and synthetic sounds and experiments in their music. During its three-year-existence, the band became popular among fans and critics alike. Apart from participating in the musical export project Czeching 2018, they performed at festivals such as Waves Vienna and Nouvelle Prague. Last year, they released a single named Running Around made in collaboration with British produced Tom O. Marshall who is also working on their new album.

Ghost of You

Five years of existence and more than 300 gigs and show times on the main European festivals, this is the current status of Brno-based band Ghost of You. After their successful debut album Glacier and The City in 2015, last year they released the new album Black Yoga combining their typical psychedelic moments with almost art-rock sound. Broken “epileptic” rhythmics accompanied by straight patterns, expressive guitars, elaborate synths and fragile vocals.

Limbo + Ventolin (live gaming)

A gaming session by Natálie Kratochvílová playing the game Limbo screened live on a wall will be accompanied by live music by Ventolin. It is a variation on the classical model of silent film (the game’s sounds are turned off and the game itself has a noir character) combined with sport and music. The gamer needs to overcome the obstacles of the games, the audiences cheer and Ventolin, as a musician, reacts to this interaction. The result is a unique film-sport performance with a considerable amount of improvisation.

Čáry života

In 2010, I began composing my first songs as Mirorr Karate. They were always slow and sad. Two years later, when we moved to Berlin with Fiordmoss, I founded Čáry života. Switching to Czech seemed to me as a step towards honesty and openness. Čáry are my diary and every song is about someone I know or met.

Stínítko recapitulates the last 6 years of my life. It is partly a “best of” compilation and partly a mix of other things. I recorded the songs myself on my computer in apartments where I used to live. Each of the recorded songs is a 150th version of itself. They vary both sound- and composition-wise depending on the time and place they were made. Stínítko may not be the most coherent album in the world, but it shows elements of time-lapse and reflects my development.

Katarzia

Katarzia is a Slovak producer, lyrics writer and singer living in Prague. Her clever lyrics are closer to rap, her band is somewhere between jazz and pop. Soft songs about human relationships have nuances of 90’s Slovak popular music, flirting with fragments of electronic synths, hip hop and cinematic atmosphere. Her discography includes three albums and in 2018, she won the Radiohead Award for her single Kde sa slzy berú from the the film Piata loď (Little Harbour). In collaboration with producer Pjoni, she composed award-winning music and lyrics to the performance of Antigona at the Slovak National Theatre.

Jury Programme: Hattlerizer 4.D

As part of the Jury Programme, Max Hattler will present Hattlerizer 4.D, the latest version of his live audio-visual performance practice, which for the fi rst time incorporates stereoscopic vision and optical sound, supported by Lux Prima’s music track. Using custom-built software, Hattler expresses an abstract audio-visual terrain in which hard-edged geometries and supple organic forms proliferate, interact, and wane. Aesthetics of metric shapes and colours coalesce with optical feedback recursions to engross the audience with virtual realms that range from the soft, nebulous, and celestial, to the frenetic, psychedelic, and dissonant. Paying homage to infl uences ranging from improvisational jazz to avant-garde animation and VJ culture, Hattler plays his audio-visual instrument in an ad lib manner, resulting in a radiant spectacle that is at once arresting, rapturous, and starkly original.

Chuchel + DVA (live gaming)

Last March, Amanita Design released into the rocks of the world an outcry of a neurotic fluff ball named Chuchel and his bald helper/rival Kekel who repeatedly try to get at least to the cherry stalk in a grotesque game. But the more we want something, the likelier it is that we lose it. Echoes came back very soon and so Chuchel, apart from excited reviews, got a “game Oscar” from the Independent Games Festival. The game will be played live by its author himself, Jaromír Plachý, who will be accompanied by the band DVA (who made the game’s soundtrack) in its so far most synthesizered form. “It’s just adowable” says Martin Macháček from Radio Wave when describing the game.

Dukla

Dukla is a Prague-based band playing guitar pop with Czech lyrics. So far, Lukáš Vydra and Josef Hradílek have released two albums – Vinohrady and Život perfektní. Nostalgically-romantic naïve lyrics resonate with the band’s melancholic sound and the performance of both musicians is honest.
