In this performance Ann Antidote and Notorische Ruhestörung combine their common taste for bondage and noise music, and use instruments as basic as possible to compose and improvise (both music and bondage) in real time. The instruments in use include circuit bending, DIY oscilators, or salvaged tape recorders.
“Cyborg sky is the limit, because we will not exclude a device just because someone declared it as not functional or not musical.”
Ann Antidote from the Strange Life of the Savages is an autodidact DIY artist, active in the fields of rope art, video, installation, sound and performance. She has been active in the politics of collective and solidary lifeforms, and queer, sex-positive lifestyles as valid, viable and respect-deserving options. This political work and the criticism that follows permeate her artistic work. Her works are also influenced by and profit from her earlier life in Physics. In 2009 she grounded the collective project umbrella “The Strange Life of the Savages” and these projects became full-time occupations.
Notorische Ruhestörung is an artist and activist mainly focusing on sound and music, but also active in other fields such as video, performance, zines and painting, DIY noisy electronics and improvisation. As a long-term member of the Berlin DIY, collective- & self-organized scene, Notorische Ruhestoerung is always interested in social struggles and real life experiences on how to be a more genuine and upright person.
