Live sound art, heavy electronics and noise action from:

ROVAR17 vs. XPLDNGLKE
A collaboration between two prolific Hungarian sound artists. The industrial noise warlock Rovar17 and the rhythmic hermit XPLDNGLKE. Together the duo creates soundscapes that exists somewhere between catatonic phantom noises and stimulating beats.
It’s all an eternal struggle for the control over the mixer, or just infinite loops of the secular idleness at the first morning after lobotomy.

MYSTERY CULT NO. 4
Cult of the bird-men - mysterious ritual performance.

THE BIRD-MEN CULT OF THE EAST
They came in boats from the islands of the east
Dreams conceived; voices and visions reached!
Banished and recorded, imagined and released,
In childlike union of body and beast,
We challenged ourselves in adventurous addiction,
Clenched fists; eyes focused -

  • although the destination was not mentioned!
    Drumming and beating, our waves, hearts, and wings
    Spiralling to heaven, our egg laden king.

MYSTERY CULT explores the history and inner workings of various initiation ritual groups from Graeco-Roman Mystery Cults to other shamanic practices across the world.
