Mixing eye-catching grayscale audiovisual art with dynamic distorted idm-beats, incite/ are criss-crossing art and club worlds, creating intense experiences for ears and eyes.
incite/ is the Hamburg-based grayscale audiovisual electronics duo of Kera Nagel and André Aspelmeier. incite/ ´s audiovisual creations center around the duo´s everyday life. The distorted visuals are mostly unrecognizable, hiding the underlying stories – an exciting expedition for the audience. Mixing eye-catching experimental audiovisual art with dynamic distorted IDM grooves, the duo criss-crosses art and club worlds, creating intense experiences for ears and eyes. Fragmented electric junk, fragile bursts of static noise and extra-charged sub-bass-kicks join abstract monochromatic imagery. incite/ play seriously weird glitch and quasi-danceable grooves in synced conjunction with intense grayscale visuals.
Live shows are the main focus of incite/. Since April 03 Kera and André have played far more than one hundred gigs: tours in Europe and the US, gigs on international festivals such as 5DaysOff (Amsterdam), ExperimentaClub (Madrid), Dokfest (Kassel), Gogbot (Enschede), RECmadrid (Madrid), Media Art Biennale WRO 07 (Wroclaw), VAD Festival (Girona), The Great Escape (Breda), Simultan Festival (Timosoara), Kontra-Musik Festival (Malmø), LEM (Barcelona), OpenZemos98 (Sevilla), International Videofestival (Bochum), Avantgarde Festival (Schiphorst), 25fps (Zagreb), Cinesthesy (Paris) and others.
