MANICURISM

Electronic music duo No Plexus celebrates the release of their visual album MANICURISM with a film screening and A/V performances by some of the Netherland’s most exciting upcoming experimental electronic musicians: Carmen Jaci & Matthew Schoen and unluca★★★.

For those who like hyperpop, Arca, foodman, Orange Milk Records, SOPHIE, Tune-Yards, Björk, Rewire and Subbacultcha events, and PC Music.

No Plexus creates and performs experimental electronic music that is conceptual, through-composed and genre-queer. With Manicurism, No Plexus have set their music to the tensions between nature's brutal powers and our need to tame, control, and ultimately manicure it. In this trilogy of twenty-five minutes, unnatural forms in nature meet angular melodies and rhythms. Filmed with an arsenal of racing drones in collaboration with the Dutch Drone Gods (Red Bull, Armin van Buuren), the visual album features otherworldly locations that have been drastically transformed by human intervention: a man-made crater, a levitating mountain and a meticulously planted bonsai farm.

Composer Carmen Jaci and visual artist Matthew Schoen are founding members of Collectif Triangle - a collective focused on creating playful, surprising and forward-thinking audiovisual works. Their latest work Assemblages is a collaborative video where mechanical systems interplay with organic structures.

unluca★★★ is an up-and-coming electronic producer based in Amsterdam.

The party will take place in NDSM’s newest venue called MACA in Amsterdam on October 21st and coincides with the film’s digital release.

MACA

Moving Arts Centre Amsterdam

From shipyard to cultural metropolitan square From the 1920s until the 1980s, the NDSM-wharf was one of the biggest shipyards in the world, regularly launching huge impressive tankers from its slipways. After this activity ceased, this sprawling location – and its imposing backdrop of crane tracks, sheds and the gigantic slipway – became a home port for creative pioneers such as Dogtroep and Robodock. Numerous initiatives followed: Over het IJ Festival, New Dakota, music festivals such as DGTL and other cultural events.
