The drummer Andrea Belfi, like the brass ensemble Zinc & Copper, has been a fixture on the international experimental music scene for years. At KONTRAKLANG, they now present a collaboration for the first time - Belfi's work Golden Canons for brass, percussion and synthesiser. Together with Zinc & Copper, he explores the repetitive structures of individual melodies within canonic forms. In the process, apparently far-flung musical areas are linked together, such as dub and pastoral. Belfi's years of sound research on the fringes of the acoustic and electronic music worlds are incorporated in it, as is the unique sound of Zinc & Copper, which was recently heard at KONTRAKLANG together with organist Ellen Arkbro.

Nguyen + Transitory consists of Nguyen Baly and Tara Transitory. They work on the borderline between sound, performance and installation, mainly with modular synthesizers and analogue tapes. They try to look at sound, synthesis, noise, rhythm and performative aspects less from a colonial perspective - instead they investigate the connection of sound frequencies, the physicality of sound production and the resulting vibrations with cognitive memories, stored emotions and catharsis. At KONTRAKLANG they present an electronic duo set.
