Hanin Elias, an early protagonist in Berlin’s post-fall-of-the-wall electronic punk and hardcore scene through her work in Atari Teenage Riot and her Fatal Recordings label, hosts an explosive evening of confrontational outbursts and dizzying noise. She is joined by outrageous Berlin punk band Cuntroaches, who “inject chaos before the music even exists and then put the music on top”, the heterogeneous abstract rhythm-infused noise of NAH, or the extreme primordial noise from duo NAKED, whose new EP on Halcyon Veil uses the sounds of sex, vomit, and noise to create a heavy, spine-crushing sonic hybrid.
NAKED are supported by the SHAPE platform, which is co-funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union.
Hanin Elias is a Syrian-German artist, infamous riot grrl, and digital hardcore trendsetter. She is a former member of Atari Teenage Riot and now performs solo in addition to running her own record label, Fatal Recordings.
Agnes Gryczkowska and Alexander Johnston are NAKED, an industrial noise duo hailing from the UK. This past October, they released Total Power Exchanged on Halcyon Veil, a record built from the sounds of sex and vomit, among other noises.
Berlin’s noise-punk outfit Cuntroaches welcome you to hell. Their output includes a strange amalgamation of industrial and dub-tinted sounds, and they have performed across Europe alongside the likes of Cocaine Piss, Puff, Lubricant, and others.
