東京を拠点とするサウンドギャラリーEBM(T)と、ベルリンを拠点に活動を行う3hd Festivalは、フェスティバル「インフラ INFRA」 を8月19日から8月26日まで開催いたします。

インフラ INFRAは、デジタルカルチャー時代におけるアート、音楽、思想を、美術館や、ギャラリー、クラブ、そしてオンラインという場を介して開催される、今までにはないフェスティバルです。

基礎や基盤を意味する インフラ INFRAという名前は、アーティスト、参加者にとっての新しい基盤を意味しています。

Berlin’s 3hd Festival and Tokyo-based EBM(T) Gallery are combining forces to work on インフラ INFRA 2017 in Tokyo, running August 19 to 26.

An ambitious festival of art, music, and thought in the digital age, the program unfolds in museums, galleries, clubs, and online.

The name インフラ INFRA is a play on the abbreviated form of ‘infrastructure,’ and breaks new ground for participants.

Artists

DJ Paypal

DJ Paypal is one of juke and footwork’s most fascinating figures: The elusive producer, affiliated with Chicago’s Teklife-Crew, his own Mall Music collective, Glasgow underground leaders LuckyMe, and most recently, Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder imprint, has built a family through online footwork forums, SoulSeek mining, and countless tracks shared across the globe. Ever since, he’s been spinning footwork in novel directions, highlighting the genre’s undervalued sense of playfulness in the process.

Lars TCF Holdhus

TCF is the project of the Berlin-based Norwegian artist and producer Lars Holdhus. Shifting between art exhibitions and musical performance, TCF’s work explores themes of code, cryptography, and musical composition through the use of visual, sonic, built, and written concepts. His gravity-free compositions create a suspended n-dimensional space whose structure often comes under frenetic attack, creating stress so intense that it threatens to tear the sonic fabric.

DJWWWW

DJWWWW’s unique style has been often described as the sound of the internet. Raised in Yamaguchi, he is co-founder of the blog SIM and the label Wasabi Tapes. His album “U.S.M!” released in 2015 has been cited as the best work of the year from The Wire. His cassette album Arigato, released on Orange Milk Records, was selected in Tiny Mix Tapes as one of 2016’s favorite 50 music releases.
