Karl Möstl (AT)

Karl Möstl is one of the most successful figures in the Austrian electronic music scene and he’s made quite a name for himself abroad too. Möstl has mastered the art of fusing different electronic styles and creatively transcending boundaries in doing so. His 15-minute performance Origin of Sound on the Maindeck seeks answers to the question of what might have been at the beginning of all human communication: sounds, singing, rhythm, words or music? The charismatic sounds will be combined with corresponding lighting effects on the Ars Electronica Center’s façade.
Möstl will then slip into his DJ persona to present interesting electronic club & dance tracks, which will likewise be synchronized with the AEC’s LED façade.

Pröll (AT)

Seit 2004 tut sich sich der Linzer Pröll (AT), Mitbegründer und Promotor des Kulturverreins Artifex, in der musikalischen Grauzone zwischen bassigem Techno und dreckigen Beats um. Das Resultat ist eine akustische Mischung, die auch Zutaten aus der experimentellen Soundküche verträgt, ohne an Tanzbarkeit zu verlieren.

Regolith (AT)

A duo consisting of Richie Herbst (Interstellar Rec., Dilemma Records / AT) and Christian Zollner (MenKillingMen / AT). Following a phase characterized by harsh noise, they’re now into improvised soundscapes, some created on homemade equipment and turntables, all situated at the interface of deep drones and unsettlingly beautiful harmonies.

Sex on the Beach (AT)

From the boondocks outside of Vienna, this instrumental ensemble has gone about satisfying its passion for psychedelic hard rock of the 1970s.
