Past performances

Montréal 2022


Peter Kutin and Patrik Lechner perform an audiovisual live-set that leads through different aesthetic corridors as they can be found on Kutin's recent album Achronie (Ventil-Records, 2021). Kutin uses self-devised light-feedback noise machines coupled with an array of synths, creating intense sonic structures, that are based somewhere between the fields of industrial and electro-acoustic music. Lechner uses a selection of Kutin’s signals in order to evoke and generate a captivating AI based visual layer. Achronie as AV show is a world premiere and is supposed to throw you as much off balance as it will embrace you.
