Boiler Room hosts a special transmission during day two of the Krasnoyarsk programme.
Live streaming the event, the prolific online music platform will broadcast the music of some of Siberia’s most forward-thinking artists to the online world, namely Klammklang label head and CTM Siberia co-curator HMOT and his Krasnoyarsk-based fellows Appleyard and Wheel. The evening features a second live set by Morphine label boss Rabih Beaini. Hailing from Petrozavodsk in Karelia, Love Cult bring their unique sonic signature of cut-up vocals, throbbing bass, mangled drum machines, noise injections, and decomposed Russian TV and VHS samples to the bill.
To follow the live stream check in on boilerroom.tv.
Entrance is free, please RSVP via the Boiler Room website.
Despite the Siberian electronic underground’s extremely short history, the small scene has nourished its own veterans. Sergey Dyomin aka Appleyard is among them. In his early days at the mixing deck at the age of fifteen in remote Lesosibirsk, he could barely have imagined himself preparing his first solo release on the experimental cassette label Klammklang ten years later and 300 kilometres south in Krasnoyarsk.
Love Cult, a Russian duo, are aficionados of all things troublesome, distressed and emotional: northern technology; dark electronica; obsessive techno; militant house; noise pop.
HMOT is the stage name of Stanislav Sharifullin, a composer and sound artist based in Krasnoyarsk, Russia. He runs the tape label Klammklang and works as a music, art & science events curator between Siberia’s major cities.
A Lebanese-born producer best known for his grainy, imaginative techno as Morphosis, Rabih Beaini’s genuine musical ability and a range of influences from krautrock to new wave to folk music seep into his inventive, dark, and emotional productions. Increasingly steering clear of the techno realm in order to explore improvisation and new configurations such as with his Upperground Orchestra, Beaini retains an ongoing fascination with sound synthesis.
