The Rest is Noise is always keen to explore the boundaries of dance music. For this year's edition, they present an evening that awakens the senses with two acts. Big sounds, emotions and true artistry is what binds them. Tim Hecker presents his latest live installment of Konoyo and Caterina Barbieri & Ruben Spini’s present their AV show titled Time-blind.

Tim Hecker recently dropped his ninth album Konoyo, a record largely recorded during several trips to Japan where he collaborated with members of the gagaku ensemble Tokyo Gakuso. Gagaku music is the imperial court soundtrack of Japan, a mix of coiling flute melodies, drums, strings and a 17-pipe horn called the shō. Hecker takes these instruments and the spiritual sounds they produce, adding his own sense of brilliance, serving up dynamic sonic landscapes that are truly unique for experimental ambient music in this vein.

Italian composer Caterina Barbieri and AV artist Ruben Spini form a hallucinating symbiosis that is as sonically complex as it’s visually stunning. Barbieri uses sequencing techniques to derive spellbinding songs from her modular instruments, pushing them to full capacity, sketching radical, deep-diving electro-acoustic panoramas. Live it’s a staggering experience to feel, hear and see how she mastered her monophonic instruments, using them to create songs in the classic structure as we know it, yet producing them in unorthodox and immersive ways.
