Bat For Lashes
Fran Palermo
Changing Grey
Ticket

Bat For Lashes (aka Natasha Khan) first captured our imaginations with her darkly fantastical magical realist songs back in 2006. She unveiled her sensually decorated sonic dream world via two Mercury Music Prize-nominated albums: 2006’s Fur and Gold, reverb-drenched Fur and Gold and 2009’s more electronically poppy Two Suns.

Fran Palermo is a many-piece Hungarian rock band. Formed in 2011, they practice a roguish style that they call vagabond rock and roll. They draw inspiration from indie, desert rock, folk and even Mediterranean moods. Their gigs are made up of a series of dancey, stomping, ecstatic moments, while throughout the years the band, although having graduated to bigger stages, have managed to retain their personal presence that characterized them in their earliest, busking years.

Changing Grey is an immersive audiovisual live act combining the talents of two Hungarian maestros, Balázs Zságer of Zagar and András Genser aka Add2Basket. Inspired by timeless influences such as The Doors, Pink Floyd as well as modern virtuosos including Kiasmos or Floating Points, Changing Grey composes a lifetime of musical passion into a tantalizingly live electronic music performance.

Analogue Zone
Free

The Hungarian modular synth experts. Their shop/studio is 5 minutes walk from Akvarium. They will bring their workshops to Akvarium on Saturday.

Modular Synth Workshop: Clocks
Most people barely recognize or conceptualize clock signals in electronic music most of the time, unless there is a problem with syncing gear. A lot of clock outputs of certain electronic instruments are too basic. Lucikly, nowadays we are able to use a lot of tools which bring true colors into the rhythm-generation and quantization of our music. Hargitai András (aka Banyek) introduces some nice games with various Eurorack modules.

Buchla Music Easel Workshop
One of the world’s most sought-after musical instruments, and obviously one of the most expensive ones, too. Peter Takács from Analogue Zone will introduce the Buchla Music Easel: Both in the context of the recording studio and live situations.

Banyek Live
Original, multi-dimensional 100% live analog techno is playfully represented in Banyek’s live acts. The music veteran has already played in many important Budapest-venues. He’s also taken his super-heavy setup to the country a few times playing on large sound systems, which greatly empowered the momentum of his analog electronic instruments. No matter whether it’s experimental and meditative soundscapes or classic dub-techno tones, this artist turns it into his home. However, this time, he aims again at the industrial peaks of colorful and percussive minimal techno with his live show.

Mïus

Brandt Brauer Frick reinterpret techno using classical instrumentation. While the likes of Jeff Mills and Carl Craig have seen their productions adapted for orchestras, the trio travels in the opposite direction along the acoustic—technological continuum, replacing synthesizers and digitally produced sound with strings, brass and live drums. This fall they’re back with a brand new live show. For the first time, Brandt Brauer Frick will tour with one lead singer, Canadian-born Beaver Sheppard, accompanied by backing singers.

Is Tropical are a four piece group from England that formed in London in 2009. The band consists of Simon Milner, Gary Barber, Dominic Apa and Kirstie Fleck. Their many albums and singles reveal a delicate balance between interesting electronics and sultry indie sensibilities.
