The opening concert in Novosibirsk begins with DYAD, the musical project of CTM Siberia festival co-producer Evgeny Gavrilov, a founding member of the Novosibirsk-based collective and label Echotourist. As Dyad & The Sleepers Club, he will perform alongside his brother Mikhail Gavrilov, and percussionist Daniil Sharomov while VJ Haust will create a visual counter part to their music.
The second performance comes from Berlin-based percussionist, electronic musician, and instrument builder Daniele de Santis, whose project GRÜN displays a fascination with electromagnetism and its enormous potential for sound generation and physical automation. His performance also serves as an introduction to his »Homegrown«-Workshop later in the week that will give practical insights into his ideas, methods and the self-designed technology behind.
GRÜN / Daniele De Santis is supported by CTM's Berlin Current initiative.
Dasha Guseva is a graphic designer and VJ from Krasnoyarsk, Siberia.
Different sounds form chords in layers, and melodies come and go. Beats and bass pump in sync; meanwhile someone with a guitar sings in front of his laptop. It’s chamber music in the club. It's like building an observatory in your head or the head of your friend; dancing while sleeping.
Daniele De Santis is a Berlin-based percussionist, drummer, and electronic music producer from Bari, Italy. Grounded in a wide range of studies concerning jazz drums, Mediterranean and Middle Eastern percussion, electronic music, and sound engineering, his work takes shape as a varied series of musical experiences driven by spontaneous multi-instrumentalism and an eclectic attitude.
