Dis-pose-contemporary in collaboration with FAVSC
is hyped to announce 'Music to Observe Electronic
Sheep', the Australian tour by Berlin-based media
artist Sven König.
A fusion of beat boxing, open source programming,
musical virtuosity and radical plagiarism is
engaged in the pop-mutations of Sven König. This
performer and founder of the radical
Mind-Music-Machine remixes 80's and 90's MTV
aesthetics in a Linux A/V mash-maelstrom. Sven has
performed across a diverse range of institutions,
contemporary music, sound art and new media
festivals throughout Europe and North America.
This is his first trip down under - after knockout
shows in Sydney it’s sure to excite the nerves and
ear hairs of FAV heads in Footscray.
FAVSC is a meeting place for artists,
noise makers, sound-designers, electronics
boffins, installation artists, film freaks, VHS
geeks, performers, programmers, DIYers,
phonographers, photographers, holographers,
circuit benders, laptop musicians, curators,
producers and anyone with an interest in lo/hi-fi
