In a year without a festival edition Berlin Atonal has put together artist-led collection under the title More Light which features new music, art prints and garments. The centre-point of the campaign is a major selection of new works by a range of artists from across the advanced musical landscape. The compilation spans 5 EPs and a wide band of the musical spectrum, with contributions from, among many others, Aho Ssan + Exzald S, group A’s Tot Onyx with Hiro Kone, Caterina Barbieri, Laurel Halo, Vladislav Delay, Galya Bisengalieva and Gerald Donald under his XOR Gate alias. A separate release comes from the late Mika Vainio and is taken from celebrated set at the 2016 edition of Berlin Atonal. This aspect of the campaign was generously supported with funds from the Hauptstadtkulturfonds.
The 2LP release is accompanied by the artwork from Vainio's personal archives. All profits from the sale of this record will be donated to the Alpha School for Boys in Kingston, Jamaica. Also revealed is the start of a new collaboration between Berlin Atonal and iconic streetwear and lifestyle brand Perks And Mini who have designed two different bespoke T-shirts for the campaign. Ezra Miller contributes with a custom T-shirt of his own and a designed Nalgene waterbottle. The campaign will also make available some high-quality limited edition prints from festival connected artists; Anne de Vries, Sasha Litvintseva + Beny Wagner, Pedro Maia and Stéphanie Lagarde contribute as well as a special photograph of the 2018 performance of Actress at the festival by Helge Mundt, and a restored poster from the 1985 edition of the old Berlin Atonal painted by D. R. Boysen.
