Red Bull Music Academy in conversation with Nene H & Lutto Lento
Red Bull Music Academy joins the festival as a partner to present an artist talk with two upcoming musicians whose Eastern origins, broad influences, and versatile takes on electronic music make for a complex artistic background and lots to talk about. The panel with Nene H. and Lutto Lento is hosted on 19th of April by Control Club, and moderated by Lucia Udvardyova.
Nene H. is one of the most exciting breakout acts in techno. She’s hailed as part of a new generation that is pushing the genre forward. Istanbul born and Berlin based, she started at the Music Conservatory in Izmir when she was 11. After spending 2 years in Ankara and 1 year in Tel Aviv, studying Piano and Composition, she was accepted to the Musikhochschule Stuttgart where she received her Bachelor and Masters degrees. While achieving notable acclaim as a classically trained pianist, she has chosen a liberating path, where she could engage with her interest in contemporary art and adapt it into her work. Nene H. proved her versatility in experimental festivals and hardcore techno clubs such as Berlin Atonal, Berghain-CTM Festival, DeSchool Amsterdam, and more. In the near future, she is starting a collaboration with the Kassel Art University as a sound composition teacher.
Nene H. performs on Friday 19th of April at Rokolectiv Festival, in Club Control.
Lutto Lento is Lubomir Grzelak, sound artist, producer, DJ and co-owner of DUNNO Recordings label in Warsaw. Equally inspired by the avant-garde, Native American indigenous music, Jamaican dancehall or raw club sounds, Lutto Lento is works with re-contextualizing samples and collages, from Enya to pop tracks and from bizarre sounds to field recordings. He released tracks on labels such as FTD, Where To Now?, Transatlantyk and Proto Sites, a first LP called “Dark Secret World”, composed music for theater, art installations and film, and is this year selected as an artist to promote by 16 festivals and art organizations through the European SHAPE platform.
Lutto Lento performs on Thursday 18th of April at Rokolectiv Festival, in the Apollo111 Theater.
