U: and ekke
U: and ekke combine glitchy insect like analogue synth beats with pieces from some of the most important 20th century contemporary composers. U: and ekke has very unique instrumentation ranging from modular synthesiser, bass flute and theremin to some virtuoso C-sound programming and radios. That creates wide and unique palette of sounds. The group is interested in different musical worlds and in different listening situation and if there is any meeting point between these seemingly different disciplines.
The performance is complemented by microscopic video by Tencu.
This project was initiated and inspired by international collaboration project “C3⊂IC” (Club Contemporary Classical subset Indie Classics) organized by Piranha Arts AG (Berlin). It has been part of C3 Road Tour (2017).
