Patterns of Perception and Minimal Collective celebrate the launch of Future Patterns, a non-profit VA project that asks artists and listeners to explore the future of electronic music, and the forces that could shape it. All profits from the first release will be donated to Deutsches Kinderhilfswerk. Contributing artists C-Refund, Toxido Mask (one half of Solid Traveller) and Altjira, plus Minimal Collective's Brent Jacko, each deliver a one-hour set for this extended slot.
Altjira, the new project of Netherlands-born, Berlin-based Marc Leerink, represents the eternal, the uncreated, a being without beginning.
Inspired by First Nations’ (Australia) Dreamtime and glimpses into Marc’s own lucid dreams, the selection glides effortlessly through deep, radiant waters, weaving an impressive palette of genres and sounds into a whole that is glitchy, atmospheric, and esoteric, yet somehow superbly unified and hopeful.
With new releases on the horizon, including on Spekki Webu’’s imprint Mirror Zone, Altjira is a bold new manifestation of a most fascinating artist entering an exciting, ascendant phase.
