Main / Regis
Live – World Premiere
Main aka Robert Hampson was the founder and lead force behind cult band Loop. His work under his name, and as Main, has to date focused on exploring intricacies in acousmatic sound diffusion. Regis is the co-founder of hugely influential techno label Downwards and one of the most highly regarded creative impulses in the British electronic scene. In this world premiere collaborative performance, noisy drone and industrial techno clash. With a Twistor Space video accompaniment by Coté.
Shackleton + Anika with Strawalde + Pedro Maia present Behind the Glass
Live A/V – World Premiere
Behind the Glass is the unapologetically ambitious new project coming out of the overlapping creative forces of Shackleton, Anika, Strawalde and Pedro Maia. Shackleton - of Skull Disco and Honest Jon's semi-fame - provides a vivid backdrop of infinitely detailed sonic complexity that conjures up something between devotional music and avant trance with the use non-standard time signatures often running against each other, an unusual and occasionally atonal sound palette, repetitive melodic motifs and a blatant disregard for the conventional 3 minute song format. Over this canvas Anika - perhaps best known for her self-titled debut album -narrates a tale of love, longing, fate and compulsion which stretches out in the style of a surreal fable. Her deadpan vocals and priestlike sermons meanwhile stand in direct counterpoint to the tales of unbridled lust, fury and the themes of dominance and submission in the world of love, romance and all their related afflictions. The whole is ably backed for the stage by keyboard maestro Takumi Motokawa and the human metronome Raphael Meinhart on mallets. The visual side sets Pedro Maia's constructive and reconstructive filmic talents against the ink of legendary Berlin artist Strawalde.
Powell + Wolfgang Tillmans
Live A/V – World Premiere
This premiere show sees Atonal regular and electronic music enfant terrible Powell on stage performing with Turner prize winning artist Wolfgang Tillmans. The two artists have been collaborating on music which will reach ears for the first time in this live A/V show.
Roly Porter + Paul Jebanasam present ALTAR
Live A/V – World Premiere
ALTAR is a collaboration from Roly Porter and Paul Jebanasam based on a performance of ritual system music. A new approach uniting the technical and creative abilities of two of contemporary music's most powerful composers, this project finds its world premiere in the context of Berlin Atonal 2017.
Pan Daijing presents Fist Piece
Live – World Premiere
Chinese performance artist and composer Pan Daijing presents at Berlin Atonal the world premiere of Fist Piece. “I am rubbing my eyes. I am putting it back. I am taking them away. I am stretching. I am holding. I am denying. I am losing."
BBC Radiophonic Workshop
Live – German Premiere
Founded in 1958 by Desmond Briscoe and Daphne Oram, the BBC Radiophonic Workshop was home to a maverick group of experimental composers, sound engineers and musical innovators. Drawing on the principles of musique concréte, found sounds, early electronics, oscillators, handmade equipment, synths and crude tape loops the Workshop created the other-worldly soundtrack to some of BBC television and radio’s most iconic programs. Now, more than 20 years after the Workshop was decommissioned, original members Peter Howell, Roger Limb, Dr Dick Mills, Paddy Kingsland and Mark Ayres have reformed the workshop and are making new music that justifies their improbable description as the Buena Vista Social Club of electronic music.
Roll The Dice
Live A/V – World Premiere
Roll the Dice is the Swedish duo consisting of Malcolm Pardon and Peder Mannerfelt. Pardon is a storied composer of film and television music. Mannerfelt's acclaimed third solo album ‘Controlling Body’ cemented him as in the top handful of creative forces working in experimental electronic music. This theatrical, surprising, world premiere performance cements the two musicians as spearheads of a fractured type of future basement jazz.
Mick Harris presents Fret
Live – World Premiere
The combined effect of Mick Harris' work in the realms of music is hard to overstate. As the drummer for pioneering grindcore band Napalm Death he invented the blast beat - one of the defining tropes of all subsequent black metal and death metal. After leaving Napalm Death, Harris played drums for Doom and Extreme Noise Terror, started the projects Defecation and Scorn. His ambient and electronic productions – Quoit, Monrella – deserve better recognition as high-water marks of 90s and 00s electronica. The dark lord Mick Harris plays Berlin Atonal 2017 under his own name, presenting his Fret project.
OKTOPHONIE
Karlheinz Stockhausen
OKTOPHONIE is the 8-channel spatial acousmatic piece composed by Karlheinz Stockhausen as part of his monumental opera cycle LICHT. According to the octophonic system Stockhausen conceptualised the electronic sounds (meant to represent the chaotic soundfield of modern warfare) exist in three-dimensional space, with the audience listening inside a "cube of sound". Berlin Atonal recreates Stockhausen's octophonic set-up on its opening night, for a presentation of OKTOPHONIE projected by long time Stockhausen collaborator and director of the Stockhausen Foundation for Music, Kathinka Pasveer.
Iancu Dumitrescu / Reinhold Friedl
Works in honour of Ana-Maria Avram
Ana-Maria Avram, one of the leading spectralist composers and a deeply loved and respected member of the avant-garde music community tragically passed away in early August. She was preparing to present a new work to open the 2017 edition of the festival. Her partner and collaborator Iancu Dumitrescu, with pianist Reinhold Freidl, will present works to honour her memory and her brilliant and continuing musical legacy.
Demdike Stare with Michael England
Live A/V – World Premiere
Demdike Stare are the Manchester duo who unpredictably extract the best from ‘90s jungle, drum n bass, industrial and ambient techno sound design. Existing in the outskirts of convention and genre allows the pair to let their intuitive grasp of rhythm and sound breathe freely in their own rarefied air. At Berlin Atonal 2017 they present their own new live A/V show on the Main Stage with visuals by Michael England, while also curated a night at OHM under the auspices of their innovative DDS label.
Trahnie Farewell
Live
Lucio Capece (Bass Clarinet), Mattin (Computer) and Morten Olsen (Drums). Mika Vainio's talent broadened the boundaries of electronic music over the course of the last three decades. Through a sheer number of pioneering works, he changed the course of the genre for good, offering a unique depth in expressive and perceptive terms. Following his recent passing, a group of local collaborators, admirers and close friends offer a tribute to the too-soon-gone Master.
Emptyset
Live A/V
Emptyset is the project of James Ginzburg and Paul Purgas dedicated to examining the material properties of sound and its correspondence with architecture, performance and physical modes of production. This show marks the first time they have adapted their live presentation for Berlin Atonal and the sublime industrial grandeur of the Kraftwerk space working in collaboration with visual artist Sam Williams.
Fis + Renick Bell
Live A/V – World Premiere
Renick Bell and Fis link up in search of next-level sonic happenings. Starting with an injection of Fis' gastric, sinuous sound into the cutting-edge expressive power of Bell's live-coded algorithms, their performance plays on apparent distinctions between their live modalities.
Damien Dubrovnik presents Great Many Arrows
Live A/V – World Premiere
"Formed in 2009, Damien Dubrovnik is a Danish electronic duo of Christian Stadsgaard and Loke Rahbek, founders of the Copenhagen based record label Posh Isolation. In their day job as label managers, Stadsgaard and Rahbek have been instrumental in presenting and promoting a new Scandinavian expression and sound. As a label Posh Isolation has outgrown its humble beginning, achieving the cult status of cultural entity that serves as an outlet for experimental music and art through now 200 releases that have reached remarkably wide international fan following. The newest release by Damien Dubrovnik, Great Many Arrows, being label release number 200. Damien Dubrovnik is the duo’s longest running project that has published work across half a dozen LPs. Damien Dubrovnik’s live shows are well known for their raw intensity and expressiveness, incorporating elements of performance art and body acoustics into their powerful physical sound where harsh industrial meets poetic ambience to leave long lasting impression.
Wolf Eyes
Live
Formed in Detroit in 1996, Wolf Eyes has a hard to summarise history of samizdat micro-run releases, improbable collaborations and impromptu gigs in many of the world's seedy basements. Wolf Eyes has the unending thirst to explore every shadowy unknown sonic corner of the homespun audio universe, with over 500 releases since 1998. Their live shows mirror this approach with every show being an audio document in itself and another mark in the history of this genre mangling free group of trip-metal/psy-jazz audio trouble makers.
Puce Mary presents A Feast Before the Drought
Live – World Premiere
Puce Mary is the solo moniker of Copenhagen based noisenik Frederikke Hoffmeier. Since 2013 she has been invigorating industrial and noise music through the exquisite power of her releases on Posh Isolation and, especially, her transfixing live shows. For Berlin Atonal 2017 she has prepared a brand new live performance entitled A Feast Before the Drought.
Ena + Rashad Becker
Oktophonic – World Premiere
Japanese producer Ena and Berlin based musician Rashad Becker will collaborate on a new piece especially conceived for the Stockhausen Oktophonic set-up. The two artists previously worked together on a new piece for the first time in the context of Berlin Atonal's New Assembly Tokyo festival in February, creating an exceptionally detailed soundscape, benefitting from Ena's remarkable sound design and Rashad Becker's masterful control of dynamics and spacing.
PYUR presents Oratorio for the Underworld
Live – World Premiere
Sophie Schnell’s (aka PYUR) newest musical venture Oratorio for the Underworld is a vibrant, fantastical chronicling of the subconscious. As demonstrated in her low-key tardis of a debut album, Schnell’s signature strikes rare balances between familiarity and remoteness bordering on all-consuming, mothership potential, particularly when heard on a full range, sophisticated sound system, such as it will be presented on during Berlin Atonal 2017.
Pact Infernal
Live A/V – World Premiere
Preferring to let their conceptually driven music stand in place of interviews and biographical information, Pact Infernal is the latest shadowy project to emerge from the impeccable Horo arsenal. The music arranges a broad palette of sonic resources into mutated tribalistic patterns, verging on but never quite fully settling with genres including ritual ambient and techno as well as those that haven't been invented yet. The performance will be accompanied by visuals from Coté with a live version of his Amplituhedron project.
Varg + AnnaMelina present FLORA
Live
AnnaMelina and Varg's new collaboration explores the differences in their solo projects to find a common ground informed in equal parts by techno, bassdrums, romantic synths and AnnaMelina's vocals.
Anthony Linell + Kimberly Ihre
Live A/V – World Premiere
The new eponymous project from Northern Electronics leader Anthony Linell sees him explore a more textured, ambient direction to his hitherto better known alias Abdulla Rashim. This premiere live A/V show follows Linell's subtle Consolidate release, a considered piece of work that rewards careful listening, and adds Kimberly Ihre on visuals.
Abul Mogard
Live A/V
With an origin story as enigmatic as the music itself, Abul Mogard seems to have made an impact on everyone who hears his rich and moving work - from Thom Yorke to Rob Booth. Internet sources refer to Abul Mogard as a retired Serbian factory worker but further information is elusive. His bitter tracks trigger a tortuous bliss rarely found in the world of contemporary electronic music. Berlin Atonal 2017 hosts the first ever live performance of Abul Mogard.
LCC with Pedro Maia
Live A/V – German Premiere
Editions Mego affiliates LCC are a duo from northern Spain. Working with Serge and Buchla 200 synthesisers, they recently completed a residency at the lauded EMS Stockholm studios. This new live A/V show is made in collaboration with Portuguese filmmaker and archivist Pedro Maia, and will be shown for the first time after its debut at Sonar festival in Barcelona.
Inga Mauer
Live – World Premiere
Inga Mauer has quickly made a name for herself as an explosive and surprising DJ, honing her craft at the famous Stackenschneider club in St. Petersberg. She has now turned her instinctive taste for industrial, EBM and new wave music into a first live show.
The Lefty
Live – European Premiere
The Lefty unites the two main forces behind the legendary Japanese label/collective Black Smoker - Killer Bong and Jube. To help Black Smoker celebrate its 20th year in the game, The Lefty link up for their European debut, taking hip-hop past its logical limits and into another realm.
Belief Defect
Live – World Premiere
Nihilistic and hopeful, melodious and jarring, Belief Defect is the anonymous new project that attempts to soundtrack the apocalypse with primal anger and self-annihilating noise. Berlin Atonal 2017 hosts the world premiere of this new project with a debut release slated on Raster.
Carla dal Forno
Live
Carla dal Forno - of F ingers and Tarcar - brings her laconic vocal style to centre stage for her eponymous solo project. Her dub-disoriented pop sensibilities leak through the sparse, Spartan arrangements, resulting in an honest, direct and unsentimental live show.
Robert Rutman
Live
Robert Rutman left Germany for Scandinavia in 1938, before attending refugee schools in England. In 1950 he left for the United States, becoming a travelling salesman. He fell in with the beat poets, establishing galleries and events in New York and Maine. He built his own instruments and scored works by Euripides, Shakespeare, Coleridge, Rilke, Thoreau, and others. In 1980 he gave a concert at the original Berlin Atonal event.
Killer Bong
Live – European Premiere
Killer Bong aka K-Bomb is the Tokyo-based enfant terrible of Japanese experimental hip-hop and the head honcho of the long running left-field collective Black Smoker. Mutant jazz-infused beats spiral around distorted vocals, watching a live show of his has recently been described as like 'gazing at an uncontrollable vehicle driving at full speed’.
Hypnobeat
Live
Compared to many live hardware acts on the circuit today, Hypnobeat has been going longer than most. The concept of the group hinges on an array of 808s and other drum machines hooked up to a plentiful spread of pedals and other effects units, seeking to find exciting new codes in a blast of syncopated rhythms. James Dean Brown reactivated the project in 2012, and invited Helena Hauff to join in and the pair have performed a number of live shows since.
Belong play October Language
Live
Belong is the New Orleans based project that blends early 1990s shoegaze, ambient electronica, and drone. Guitar based, heavily processed and distorted loops that seem to go on forever layer on top of each other creating unashamedly beautiful and powerful textures. Their 2006 album October Language was a high-water mark for this kind of often emulated and rarely mastered music and at Berlin Atonal they prepare a special set based on this material.
JASSS
Live
JASSS is a sound artist and producer born and raised on the northern coast of Spain, where Jazz, African, and South American rhythms became some of the first and most formative influences of her life. As a DJ she has a distinct, eclectic style that covers the diverse ground between industrial, dub and experimental music.
Nene Hatun presents Fountain of Fire
Live – World Premiere
Nene Hatun was born in Istanbul, raised in Izmir and spent seven years in Stuttgart studying piano and composition before moving to Berlin and beginning her musical career in earnest. Equally resistant of a reduction to her classically trained background as to the predominant forms of club-ready electronic music in the scene today, Hatun accesses a somewhat darker, transcendental state. The world premiere of her new work "Fountain of Fire" is inspired by the text from Rumi and the contradictions and interplay between vital life-giving but also destructive powers. "You must know better, if I enter / I'll break all this and destroy all that / but punish me if I enjoy myself."
Swan Meat
Live
Reba Fay - otherwise known as Swan Meat - is a young poet and composer from Washington, D.C. Informed by her experience with chronic illness & recovery, her work pairs pairs "a carnivalesque assemblage of spoken word pieces" with jarring, arrhythmic industrial and ambient compositions, built from a library of memories teeming with sonic detritus: vestigial feeding tube, bytes of heart monitor.
Broken English Club
Live
Oliver Ho’s early productions made clear his ability to inject a dark narrative into functional electronics. With Broken English Club, he delivers monotone vocals and shards of live instrumentation over stuttering beats and bleak synths. The blank-stared, pinpoint focused electronics and layers of noise betray no/wave and post punk influences, dragging together industrial experimentation and pitch-black techno.
Lemna presents Sediment
Live – World Premiere
Lemna is the alias of Tokyo-based producer Maiko Okimoto. She is a regular at underground clubs in Japan, and since she only performs live and never DJs, which has honed her approach to music making. A debut LP for Horo and the premiere live show at Berlin Atonal 2017 will propel Lemna out of the Tanizakian shadows into the international experimental music consciousness.
Yair Elazar Glotman presents Blessed Initiative
Live – World Premiere
Yair Elazar Glotman is a musician and sound artist living in Berlin. His compositions are currently concerned with analog tape loops, electronics and contrabass. He trained as a classical contrabass player, and has studied electroacoustic composition. For his Blessed Initiative project, Glotman utilises an ambiguous harmonic sphere constituted by microtunings, integrated into idiosyncratic rhythmical structures and concrete, almost-recognizable organic sounds, blending them all together to create a dissonant state of simultaneous highs and lows.
Equiknoxx (ft. Gavsborg, Time Cow and Shanique Marie)
Live
Jamaican future dancehall group Equiknoxx are the latest project to be highlighted by Demdike Stare’s DDS label. The high-energy live show twists, splits and recomposes jagged riddims, combining precise sound design with mutant dancefloor vibes.
David Morley
Live
Ambient master David Morley arguably reached the high-water mark of the genre starting with the 1992 release of Evolution - the first release on R&S’s famed ambient sublabel Apollo. A storied career in recording studios since the 1970s stands him in good stead for this hardware-heavy set.
CoH
Live
CoH (pronounced "sohn") is a Russian sound artist, based in Sweden, who has been active since 1998. He has released numerous works on esteemed experimental labels like raster-noton, Editions Mego, Coil's Eskaton, and more. Characterised by exquisite, tactile detail and subtle sound manipulation, his live shows tend to build up rhythmical content by layering waves and pulses in unexpected ways.
Shaun Baron Carvais
Live – World Premiere
Paris born Carvais is better known for his other, more techno oriented projects. This new ambient body of work however indicates an alternative direction, more reminiscent of Carvais' earlier love of electronica and IDM, Warp Records, Aphex Twin and Boards of Canada.
Moritz von Oswald
Moritz von Oswald, legendary master of electronic experimentalism and technical exactitude, has an unassailable place in the modern history of forward-thinking music. To follow his career is to take a guided tour through some of the most important developments, places and people in the history of electronic music. For Berlin Atonal 2017, von Oswald prepares a special set for the Tresor basement.
DJ Stingray
DJ
DJ Stingray is the veteran Detroit techno producer whose career has spanned over 20 years. Initially creating his Urban Tribe alias in the 90s, while working with Carl Craig, Anthony Shakir and Kenny Dixon Jr., Stingray first donned his trademark balaclava while touring with Drexciya, to hide his identity on stage. He has been representing Detroit's sound for over 25 years with masked performances around the world, and three dozen releases - including records on labels like Planet E and Mahogani Music as well as collaborations with Dopplereffekt's Heinrich Mueller. In the process, his DJ sets have attained legendary status.
Crossing Avenue
Live
Hi-fi, cerebral techno is the modus operandi of Crossing Avenue. The Italian duo's release on Spazio Disponibile acts like a programmatic statement of intent for a style of techno dominated by their label mates including Donato Dozzy, Mike Parker and Marco Shuttle. This new addition to the label and the scene might end up being the best of the pack.
Marco Shuttle
Marco Shuttle operates in the abstract regions of techno - detailed and organic, aquatic and fractal. He has been deeply inspired (besides the classic influences like Detroit techno, electro and acid house) by more abstract sounds, ranging from Spiritual jazz, noise, industrial, musique concrete and American minimalism. An extended DJ set is his platform to explore the more dancefloor-ready aspects of these geographies during Berlin Atonal 2017.
Pépé Bradock
Pépé Bradock is one of the most elusive figures in dance music. His rare taste unearths a deep interest in jazz and dub, which is expressed in his even rarer public sets - which are also occasions for him to display in their full glory his unique and hypnotic productions.
DJ Deep
DJ Deep is the Parisian mainstay of house and techno who has been plying his trade at the world’s best parties for over twenty years. He connects the dots both between Chicago, NY, Detroit and his native France, with his own personal touch.
Shed + Pinch
Shed, stalwart of the Berlin techno scene, is known to work the foundations of UK dance music into his productions which culminate in his immediately recognisable and infectious signature sound. Pinch, pioneer of the Bristol dubstep scene has always had one eye on the sounds of Berlin. His futurist take on jungle, roots, dubstep and techno have found a home on his excellent Tectonic records. Together for the first time - Pinch and Shed perform back to back. expect beats, bass and energy.
Optimo
The inimitable shapeshifting Glaswegians Optimo join the festival's closing night party.

Pessimist
Pessimist, with his recent release on Blackest Ever Black, achieved a mix of ice-cold jungle and futuristic techno that put him squarely in a league of his own. Minimalistic but weighty, shape-shifting but exquisitely monotone, Pessimist somehow achieves a fusion out of what in lesser hands would remain contradictory, Berlin Atonal 2017 let's him unpack more clearly his references and directions with a closing set on Stage Null.
Sigha
James Shaw's work as Sigha has quickly risen to the top of a sometimes crowded genre, what sets him apart is his sensitivity to place, space and the shifting gravitational centre that binds together a room and an audience. He returns to the festival following his masterful five-hour closing set in Tresor during Berlin Atonal 2015, and his more recent outing to Japan with Atonal's New Assembly festival.
Shifted
The paradoxical constant at the heart of Guy Brewer's (aka Shifted) output is the dynamism of change.
