According to the meteorological calendar, March is the first month of the year. This is quite appropriate when you consider that this is also the time when spring hits the scene and life slowly starts moving again (until the summer holidays,for the school year starts in August). For extratonality there is no beginning or end. Like an Ouroboros, our efforts consume themselves, only to breathe new life into our expressions. This infinite alchemical cycle is present everywhere in the work of the artists we have invited for the 12th edition of Extratonal Infrastructure. Join them on their travels on the cosmic roundabout!

Veritas Ventriloquist by sound artist Lottie Sebes is a sonic performance which questions, transforms and harnesses the historical entanglements of gender, voice and technology. At its core is the Veritas Machine - a noisy, dynamic, woman-machine interface made of dismantled and reforged sewing machines, re-envisioned as an instrument and vocal synthesizer. Through its performance the body becomes the sounding chamber for a genealogy in which machines and media have historically impressed their gendered codes, forming a shared agency through which a cyborg voice can defy the boundaries of its own gendered history.

Picture oF Davicde Luciani in front of a amplifier.

Davide Luciani is using the mixer as an instrument combined with samplers, compressors and drum synths, Luciani crafts a harshness that is at once textural and rhythmic, cerebral and visceral. Davide is active as an electronic music composer, curator and artist in Berlin. His practice spans from sound installations, electronic composition, multimedia installation, scultpure to visual arts.

Picture of NDNMK solutions with a cup of tea and an accordion.

NDNMK Solutions is an ineffective multinational; brand awareness in the trash, shareholder value like mossy old shoes hanging in the tree, its sad coffee in the stinky office. They come for live performances with sounds from the computer, yelling from the mouth, and an accordion (Weltmeister 80 bass). Scenes from the encrypted folder, eroded SIM card, forgotten RPG, the cobalt glacier, where the cameras of endoscopies and colonoscopies meet, flirt, and kiss with tongue. Bring your phone to take pictures or videos. Currently open vacancies: general assistant(1-8 hours/w), chief mix/master (1-8 hours/w), photographer (1 hour/w), marketing director (1-8 hours/w), cleaner (1 hour/w) - salary is up for discussion!

Birds WG is a healer, writer, and performance artist based in Rotterdam. Their work focuses on the complexity of the human condition and the universe. They believe in diversity and dialogue as methodologies for conflict resolution and peace. They believe that words and images are indisputable healing forces. They write fiction, non-fiction, poetry, lyrics, and text for performance. Since 2007 their performance work is an ongoing research project on how to create transcendental experiences of the written and spoken word. At Varia they will present INCOMPLETE - A Sci-fi Reading Performance in seven parts.

This event is made possible with the kind support of Popunie Rotterdam, Stichting Volkskracht, Fonds Podiumkunsten, Gemeente Rotterdam and Stimuleringsfonds Creatieve Industrie.
